Dear Dish-it: How Do I Apply Make-up Correctly?

Dear Dish-it,

How do I put make-up on the right way? I’ve been trying to do it correctly, but it always winds up being too thick or too light. All my friends are good at it and I’m embarrassed to ask them for help.

Clown Face

Dear Clown Face,

There’s no right or wrong way to apply make-up. There are tons of different techniques that offer many different looks. The first step is to determine whether you’re going for a simple, daytime natural look, a smoky night-on-the-town look, or something in between. All you have to do is look up techniques on the internet and you should find lots of step-by-step instruction guides.

Some Tips

Eyeliner can make or break a look. If you apply too much it can make you appear Goth or punk. It’s important to apply it correctly. Using small, short strokes, guide your pencil along the top lid as close to the lash line as you can get. You can smooth this out later using a cue tip. Don’t apply eyeliner to your bottom lid. This can look too harsh, and, depending on your eyeliner, can cause your make-up to run or smudge beneath your eyes.

Mascara

In place of eyeliner, apply a thin layer of black waterproof mascara to your lower lashes to make your eyes pop. Also apply mascara to your upper lashes for a full feminine look. For daytime, use regular black mascara, but for a more dramatic nighttime look, choose something with lash extension.

Blush

Using too much blush can totally destroy a look. You don’t want to look like a clown, as you call yourself. Simply apply a small amount of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks.

Lipstick vs. Lip Gloss

Choosing a lip color depends on your eye make-up. If you’ve created a dark and smoky or colored look with eye shadow, choose a more neutral lip color, either a gloss or a lipstick that enhances rather than changes the natural color of your lips. Going bold with both the eyes and the lips will give you that clownish look again. It’s just too much. However, if you’ve applied a light, natural look to your eyes, you can get away with a bold lipstick. But don’t choose bright red or hot pink unless you’re comfortable with it and it doesn’t clash with your outfit.

I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.

My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!

 No. Nope. Uh-uh! If he's trying to force you to do something you don't want to, like That, then i suggest you walk away. Say "no" plain and simple, and let him know what you think of that stuff.
