    Could someone teach me how to put eyeliner on?

    Ahem.

    Also, if I wanted a really pale complexion, what would I use?

    I'm SO EXCITED ABT MAKE-UP THREADS. gimme a second.


    if you're very pale i'd go for a brown colour.

    if you want a sharp line, don't go for the 'kohl' type. kohl is for the smudgy look which i like, but some people like a more definite line which is also more appropriate for day-wear.

    rest your elbow on a hard surface if need be. you soon won't need to do this though. if you f up, dap a little baby oil on an ear bud and clean up. vaseline will also do.

    don't you even think abt doing the top line unless you are a pro. AVOID LIQUID EYELINER LIKE THE PLAQUE for the same reasons.

    if you're going for a heavy made-up eye with liner, keep lips and cheeks minimal. just a little gloss on the lips to balance things out.

    to make small eyes bigger, don't line the whole bottom lash-line. start from abt mid-way in. use white-liner if you want really big looking eyes.if you want smaller looking eyes, ignore this though.

    But but I dont want like WHITE face, I want to look properly pale/ill!
    And I'll no doubt end up getting stupidly drunk, and I would smear face paint everywhere.

    Yeah probably....

    Get some really pale foundation.

    Unless you are already the palest shade of skin.

    Then I don't know.

    yes. it would be profoundly rubbish.


    actually. you know what would be a good idea. go buy a girl's foundation a few shades lighter than your real skin tone. or buy that green coloured foundation you can buy.

    If it's for halloween the cheaper the better.

    You can get a cheapo one from Boots for about £3.

    Halloween is a moveable feast.

    It may last a week either side.

    He may also just be organised.
