What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

So, as I was playing around with some makeup and applying what is most likely way too much for a trip to the store, it got me wondering...

We always read about beauty "rules" like not using eyeliner or even mascara on your lower lashes, not wearing shimmer shadows on your lids if they are crepey, etc.  

I prefer shimmery shadows to matte. Not glitter, just shimmer, and yes, I am almost 50 ( but I do have nice skin). I always use at least a little liner on my lower lashline, and always mascara upper and lower. I like to use highlighter, even during daytime..and who cares about the season? If I am in a pastel mood and it's Winter, or in a gunmetal mood and it's Easter, I will wear it.

What about all you BT rebels out there?

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

I know we're not supposed to have a bright or dark lipstick if our eyeshadows are already dark, but sometimes I just don't care and go for it. I'm just not a fan of nude or light lipsticks. My face needs some color lol

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

Agreed that all of these rules can be broken! Not a rule, but if you ever find that black mascara looks harsh on the lower lash line, you can use brown instead, which makes the eyes look more wide-open/ bright.

 

And not to add in rules, but a tip from a Make Up For Ever trainer about lining the lower lash line-- it depends on the rest of your face. If your features are flatter, it may not work, while if you have a more prominent nose (I do)/ more dramatic curves in your facial profile (I can't think of a better way to put this, I think she explained it better) it will probably work well to balance your face. This is true for me (not saying there are not exceptions of course).

You can't wear white after labor day.

 

Um, since when do other people get to tell me when and when not to wear something?

 

My mother would always remind me of this 'rule'. Ugh, I just never cared. I thought it was amusing, actually. My clothes. My body. My choice.

 

Also, I have red hair and I wear red lipstick! *gasp!* If the mood strikes me, I'll rock that red and make it look fabulous!

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

I love red lipstick on redheads, very classic look!

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

ppfffftt. White whenever the hell I want. I have a pair of white pants I call the @ss pants because they make my figure look so good, so yeah I wear those all the time. Smiley Very Happy

Ditto on the red hair and red lips, although I'm only a tiny bit red.

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

I have a few of those pants that are my booty pants too! hahah! I love my boo-tayyy! Smiley Very Happy

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

Agreed! It's funny though, normally when I wear them I just get guys being more attentive/polite (like holding the door; yeah, I know why you're doing it...), but one time this guy just came right out and said "Those pants fit you real good!"

 

I about choked trying not to laugh.

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

People always say "chivalry is dead"...well not if you are rockin' some good jeans!

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

Even when my hair was straight up red I always wore red lipstick!

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

ALL OF THEM.

 

haha, i wear whatever colors I want, when I want to.  I'm over 30, but i'm still sometimes still rock miniskirts.

 

Bold eyes AND bold lips?  YUP.

 

I am totally a rogue rouge.

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

.....wait, there are rules?

 

I do what I like, say "thanks" when I'm complimented, and shrug when people find my outfit/look weird/strange.

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

Amen to that!!

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

Rules? What rules? you mean like no white shoes after Labor day or before Memorial Day, no shiny face products during day time tc? Well, my dear rules were made to be broken. I think I've broken every one of them, most by the time I was 12 and I just keep on breaking them. I say wear what you love when you want & ENJOY it.

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

I think it's the age ones that bother me the most because a lot of people really believe those!  I think you only are old when you start acting out.  If I want to wear glitter lip gloss, then I'm going to!

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

me too! That's what makes the world go round...we are all individuals! I don't like reading the magazine articles that suggest you should do this or that, but not that...or have one signature fragrance--like anyone could have ONE bottle of perfule! gasp! 

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

perfume, I meant

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

I don't always agree with the "don't match your makeup to your outfit rule".  The infamous Kelly Osbourne example that shows up here is probably why that rule was invented in the first place:

but sometimes, matching can be really cool.

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

i forgot that one!! i may  not match my shoes and bag, but if I am wearing a royal blue shirt, I will do a cobalt eyeliner!! I love that!

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

Yes!!!!  The bold, colored liner is the best!!!

 

Re: What Beauty "Rules" Do You Break?

I comb my hair with a fined toothed comb...when it is WET!!! I am a rebel, I tell you!

 

Supposedly thats bad and is supposed to cause breakage/damage to the hair, but i do this right after i apply conditioner to my hair in the shower, and it makes my hair super soft!
