Your sloppy method is as irritating to my ocd as mine was to yours.
Seriously. Just ask ppl. It works more often than not.
Shaming us is really counterproductive.
Update: something about the bare skin appeals to me more. Seems more alive and beautiful for that, alone. I agree that the one flat color thing might emphasize the bone structure or what have you, and that's a valid beauty component, but it seems like we're missing that variability in the unpainted skin.
Some French people don't wear foundation because they like the look of skin, too.
The painted skin looks like art. The unpainted skin draws me viscerally. If the person was my partner, I'd want to touch the unpainted skin, not the painted. It seems more like he's in a magazine...like it's a message or an idea.
who was it, Kant?, talking about the sublime. Some ILI and I were talking about this, and I am starting to see the 'full-face of makeup' as more a (really working around ideals, etc) type of beauty and as obscuring some parts of the beauty of.. the startlingly tangible and unpainted and unique

I bought these amazing scrunchies. Pretty excited about them. I have to admit the way they were packaged and labeled (ice skating, decorating the tree) excellent marketing lol. Think my favorite one is ice skating.

Tried this one out last night- Essie Daring Damsel Gel couture
i don’t think I’ve tried gel nail polish before, or if I have I know I haven’t tried essies gel couture. It went on super smooth and easy and doesn’t seem like it will chip as bad as regular polish...I really like it so far. Interested to see how it holds up
~we're just out here havin a good time~
The Kawaii and Harijuku movement is ultra SEE. It’s all about expressing (Fe) how you feel inside (Fi) through your outfits and making a statement (Se). Kawaii values Fi over Fe because no one knows you because you keep things to yourself. So if you feel like a mermaid princess, then ago ahead, dress up like a mermaid princess. There’s one day a week dedicated to showing off your opulent outfits, but it’s not an Fe affair. There isn’t any emotional conjuring happening. It’s a space for all the Fi to be there. The stores in Japan that cater to Kawaii dressing up embody LIE, activator to SEE. They support and value Fi (Fi seeking) and also make a lot of money (Te).
I’ve been trying a lot of new products lately. It started with me having dry skin patches on my face and thinking I needed an exfoliator. The last time I tried one was in my early teens and it made a red/burn mark on my face, so I hadn’t tried any since. Anyway, I tried this- Soap & Glory Face Soap And Clarity 3-In-1 Daily Detox Vitamin C Facial Wash
and now I’m obsessed because it got rid of the dark circles under my eyes I’ve been trying to get rid of for a few years. As an exfoliator, is kind of meh (I mean I don’t know if it exfoliates all that much but it makes my face feel cleaner and doesn’t break me out).
so I figured, I’m getting older and am noticing more wrinkles form. Around my mouth at first, then around my eyes. And thought maybe I should try more products... like actually start using a moisturizer. I’ve used Olay regenerist in the past, and I haven’t really noticed any difference. My mom recommended Estée Lauder Resilience and acted like it was an amazing product. The price tag was a little ridiculous, so I ordered a sample. It didn’t really seem that better than the much cheaper Olay regenerist, imo. Not only that, but using a moisturizer every day seems to give me milia, which then drives me nuts, and I end up trying to get rid of them all, which gives me red spots all over my face. And since I’m getting older, I notice my skin doesn’t heal as well, so now I have a few red spots on my face that won’t seem to go away from my experimentation. I’m thinking of just mostly nixing the moisturizer, or I need to find a better one. I’m thinking about trying this one next-Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer
The only thing I’ve tried so far that I’ve noticed making any difference was the soap and glory cleanser and Lancôme Genefique Serum (my mom gave me one of her free samples). But when I looked up the price of a bottle of the stuff, I about died. At this point, I’m thinking about buying it anyway . But it gave me, milia too. I wash my face a lot (at least twice a day), so I don’t get why my face is doing this. Think I’m going to try this- https://www.target.com/p/soap-38-glo...z/-/A-79962247 and see if it does anything about it since I’ve liked the soap and glory product I’ve tried so far.

@aster have you tried any DIY face cream/serum recipes? I have been thinking of experimenting with things like lanolin and beeswax (after having noticed that they are the main ingredients of my beloved alcohol-free Weleda Wind and Weather cream, which recently got its price doubled). I also found out that vitamin C and hyaluronic acid can also be bought in powder form.
currently I’m too lazy/not brave enough-worried about a bad reaction, to try it yet. But all this experimentation is making me realize what works well. I’d never tried vitamin C on my face until the face wash, and was surprised how much it helps. So yeah it’s definitely useful to find products that work really well for you and try to mimic them at home, I think. Especially if it’s something insane, like over 100$ a bottle, which Prob a lot of cases you are buying a lot just for the brand name.
So lately I’ve been sticking (mostly) to some kind of skin care routine. Thought I’d share
~exfoliate face once (or every other day when I forget/being lazy) with burts bees peach and willow bark deep pore scrub. So far I really like it and haven’t had any problems with it. But it’s really the only exfoliater I’ve ever stuck with, so not much experience.
~wash face with soap and glory face soap and clarity vitamin c face wash (morning and before bed, after wiping away any makeup I have with burts bees micellar makeup removing towelettes with rose water), following up with burts bees calming toner with witch hazel and rose.
during the day, I put on Bliss Glow and hydrate day hyaluronic serum
then, bliss bright idea vitamin c + tri-peptide collagen protecting and brightening moisturizer (love, favorite moisturizer so far)
at night, I put on bliss renew and smooth night glycolic acid serum
then, the bliss bright idea moisturizer again
most days I haven’t been wearing makeup, but when I do, I usually just put on foundation- Pur 4-in-1 Love your selfie (absolutely love. I got LN2 and it matches perfectly. Favorite foundation so far) concealer- julep cushion complexion 5 in 1 skin perfector with turmeric , mascara (need to find a better one), and burts bees satin lipstick in blush basin & or burts bees tinted lip balm in red dahlia (obsessed and always have one in my pocket)
anyway, my skin care experiment is working out well. I have noticed a positive difference, but I have been getting some weird breakouts on my chin, and I’m not sure what product precisely is causing it, or if it’s just a combo. But it’s not too bad. In the long run, will it make a difference? Probably. I mean you would think it would, a bit? The only thing is, it seems a bit expensive, and I haven’t added it all up, but it’s probably not good, and I think at this point, I’m addicted to certain products, or just all them...The routine... so yeah now I’m just spoiled ... it would be difficult going back to just soap and water after this.
I didn't want to do my plans earlier so I just experimented on cheap makeup I found at home and Yes@!!!!!@@!@ I found out the style of eye makeup I like after a few tries:
This is what it looks like close up (NiSe eyes?):
Changed my nails too (that one is messy on close up, but I'm pretty sure if I take a shower the excess would come off):
I would post my whole face, but I just had a lot of meltdowns and sad stuff on random thought thread so I'd rather not for now lmao
Anyway I'm thinking of buying quality make ups soon, because cheap make up is probably bad on the face. Maybe next week I'll be looking to some korean brands bec they seem to be high qual(?). Also this would be my new hobby@@! I'll put eye shadow everyday now
Dark red would be cool, but I'm LIE, so my taste would be a bit off the mark for you. For reference, I personally prefer white, clear, or no nail polish. but that's me. When ESIs want to show off, they tend to solid pastels, with one nail a different color. When I see that, I think, "OK, now I want to see the rest of you."
But I think black or dark, dark red would be appropriate for ILIs.
For reference, here's a video of a male SEE surrounded by Ni-females. Mostly ILIs, but at least one IEI. You might get some inspiration from looking at them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubztYMkI3fY
