my eyes are strange, they are gray with a tint of blue and green with brown around the pupil and like spikes of gold...what eyeshadow color should i use

Hey girl,

Your eyes sound awesome--you can probably get away with any color of eye makeup! If you have blue and green in your eyes, I would try the recommended shades for those, but don't be afraid to experiment with other colors, too!

I need an advice for what makeup would suit me, I'd really appreciate it if you'd help me Smile
I'm 17, my hair color is light brown (born with pale blond that darkened with age) and my skin is very pale. I can't define my eye color, it's a gray with bluegreen tint, and there's a thin gold ring around the pupils. My eyes are hooded and the pupils are big, so often the color looks watery and transparent. Also, my big cheeks make my face very wide, how can I slim them down?
Thanks in advance Laughing Helen S.

I've got gray eyes with just a smidge of blueish-green and I have pale skin (but really blush a lot as in "omg are you sunburnt or something? you're purple.") and reddish hair. what shade of eye shadow should I wear?




Hey girl, I'd try cool colors like green, pearl or purple. I'm a big fan of lighter colors (pearl is one of my go-tos). Try a white color and go from there.

My eyes are super dark brown. They look almost black if I'm not standong in the sun. What colors should I wear?




Hey luvscaramel, my eyes are the exact same. My fave color to wear is black, although grey, tan or nude, gold, silver and brown work too. Don't shy away from bright and pale colors like pink, purple and blue. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Hey girl,

Ask your mom if you can work out a deal, like starting out with a little makeup (lipgloss and mascara) and then progressing into other stuff. If you take it slow, she might be more receptive to the idea!

Hey girl,

Everyone is different, and beauty comes in all sizes. That goes for facial features, too. All noses are beautiful! As for your makeup staying on, try using a primer before your foundation. if it's still sliding by the end of the day, add a setting spray, too.

Thank you soooooooooooooooo much!!! Amanda16

 

Hey Amanda,

Try looking at Walmart or Target! They have all sorts of hair accessories at great prices! Smile As for makeup, start slow with lip gloss, eyeshadow in basic colors like gray, gold/chocolate brown, and one "special" color like lavender or navy blue. Like your mom said, don't overdo it! Wear a little bit to enhance your natural beauty and practice whenever you have free time. That way, you'll get comfy with it and know you'll be able to do your makeup for any situation!

This really mean guy said that I was ugly and a lesbian; he also said other people say the same thing about me. I'm upset and already told my parents. What should I do?







Hey chica, first things first... please, please don't waste your time thinking about this guy. Clearly, he's unhappy with life, so he feels the need to bring others down. He is NOT worth your time, or your tears. The less attention or reaction you give him, the more likely he is to get bored and leave you alone. You did the right thing by telling your parents. If it continues or gets worse, I'd tell a teacher or someone at school too. Don't let this jerk get to you, girly. If anything, I'd feel sorry for him. Keep your head up Smile

JellyBeanChick: I`m no doctor, but you may want to try out some of the products in the brand AVEENO. They sell everything from lotions and make-up removers to shampoo`s. Their ingredients are very natural and won`t irritate your skin. I own quite a few of their products and they are all awesome! I couldn`t live without their body wash! It`s a must have! These products are affordable and could be purchased at your local drugstore so it is worth a try!

My eyes are black, so what color should i wear?

Hey girl,

Like brown eyes, your eyes will probably pop with most colors of eye makeup, so try out different colors and see what looks best! Be careful of wearing dark, heavy liner, though -- you want your eye color to look dark, and too much liner on dark eyes can be overwhelming.

fullofdreams well,with gray eyes you can use many MANY shades.
If you have like a plain blah gray,a light shade of ice blue made your eyes pop,along with some mascara.
If you have silvery gray eyes,you can't go wrong with a light coat of silver glitter shadow,like the one shown in the article.
And if you have those blue-gray eyes (Or as my friend pointed out "wolf eyes") they look cool with a neatruel tone with a light-light layer of gray eyeliner with Lear or jet black mascara.
For any make up that you use,I suggest covergirl,maybelline,or,if you want to save money,Cvs.com.
Hopes this helps! Laughing

Can I get some help?!? I have a skin condition called eczema. It makes patches of my skin REALLY dry and sometimes reddish. People are always asking about it and sometimes they think I have been crying ALOT. I can't use concealer or makeup to cover it up because it just makes it worse. I have also tried medicine from my doctor. Nothing seems to work. Can someone tell me how to get rid of this please!?! Thank you!

Thank you GirlsLife! My eyes are blue but they are way harder choosing an eye shadow! For starters you can't use lots of various colors since a lot of the times it doesn't match! Frown I usually wear a light tan to highlight my eyes, a pale pink to give it a more magical look, or a tan/ bronze for a natural look. (Pale blue eye shadows are okay for real fancy occasions, or if I am wearing a blue dress or shirt. White eye shadow looks like your trying to hard and just doesn't fit.) For lipgloss I usually use a bright red or a light pink. I use red if I'm feeling daring or more mature, I use pink on a normal day to again enhance the natural look. I also use a swipe or two of bronzer on my cheek bones because I feel I am kinda pale. I usually look pretty cute by the end of this process!

Hey MOD!
So I don't wear any makeup at all and I'm 12. All of my friends do and I want to too. My mom says I don't need any makeup. Even though that is kind true, I want to wear at least a little mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner to make my eyes pop. What is your opinion and when do you think is a good time for a girl like me to start wearing makeup?

Hey girl,

There's no rush to start wearing makeup, and you do need to respect your mom's wishes while you're living with her at least! Everyone starts wearing makeup at different times, so don't feel like you're behind the game at all. To talk to her about it, why not suggest you ease your way into wearing makeup, like starting out with just a little lip gloss and mascara and adding on eventually from there?

My friends say that I'm too skinny and that I need to put on some weight. Should I believe them? I overheard one of my best friends talking to one of her other friends, and she said she thought that I might have an eating disorder. I am a vegetarian, I always eat the same things (especially peanut butter, yum!) and I never, ever eat that much. Can you help me?




Hey girl. If they are saying these things then it is only because they care, so dont get mad at them. Sometimes being a vegetarian can change your health and make you loose some weight, but make sure that you are still eating enough and regularly. If you are really nervous that maybe you do have a problem ask you parents and see what they think, they will always tell you the truth.

Hey so I just started highschool soccer, and I made JV, I'm just really frustrated because all the girls dont take it seriously and they dont try in practice and it doesnt seem like they care. Also they completly ignore the coach and dont focus. It drives me crazy because I played on a premiere travel league my whole life so to have these girls not focusing and doing their best drives me crazy!!! what can i do to help them along and to focus more! thanks so much! I dont want to sound cocky or annoying its just that I dont think that I will improve in that kind of environment. Thanks in advance!!




Hey girl,

I know it's really hard, but the best thing you can do is persevere through this and use it as motivation for YOU to work harder. Ask your coach what you can do to get better, work as hard as you can during practices, and BRING IT during games. Compared to the rest of the team, you'll stand out because you're so committed! That'll help you work up to varsity in the future - aka playing with a team who cares a lot more, shares your dedication, and will help you grow Smile It's tough to work so independently, but just keep telling yourself this won't last forever!

THANK YOU!




Hey babe,

It's not weird at all! Lots of people experience changing eye colors, either from day to day or even from morning to night! I'd probably just get regular contacts for now. Get the hang of those and then, if you REALLY want to mix up your look with different color eyes, make that decision later on. Personally, I think your eyes sound gorgeous as their natural color though! <3

And how should i convince my mom to let me get new vans? ALSO, do Vans go with like mesh sport shorts? Sorry for all the questions! HELP! THANKS




Hey babe,

No need to be sorry! That's what we're here for Smile

1. Curly hair is a little tough with bangs... you have to be really serious about styling your hair, and most often will have to straighten them. If you think you can commit to that, give it a try! Side bangs are great because they take less time to grow out Smile

2. I wash my face with Clean & Clear's Morning Burst cleanser in the morning and at night. Drink lots of water throughout the day and DON'T touch your face (your fingers can transfer oils, which clog pores). Give it a try and see how your skin reacts!

3. Try asking and agreeing to split the price of the new shoes. Or offer to do chores around the house to "pay" them off. They totally go with sport shorts (it can be a cute sporty look), but go with lots of other things too! (Another thing to tell your mom, which might help convince her!) Smile

hi! i'm going to start babysitting this little 6 year old in my neighborhood this summer. i'll be babysitting her for 3 days a week, a total of about 10 1/2 hours per week. how much should i charge? this will be my first real babysitting job, but i've been watching my cousins since i was 11 (i'm 13 now)




Hey girl,

You could probably charge anywhere from $5-$10 per hour. It depends on a few things, like how many kids you'll be watching, how old they are, what you'll be responsible for (ranging anywhere from just sitting around to make sure they stay asleep or making dinner and helping with homework). You kinda have to use your judgement... and don't be afraid to ask the parents how much they were thinking!

I have an athletic body type (muscular legs, broad shoulders) and I want to know what kind of styles look best on my body type before I go shopping for spring clothes. Also, I'm not much of a dress-wearer (the consequences at my school are pretty bad for short skirts). Thank you!




Hey girlie,

Girls with muscular legs should totally go for wide leg jeans, like bootcut or boyfriend styles, because they can slim legs and give a long, lean look. Shirts with a boat neck or scoop neck and fluttery cap sleeves are GREAT for athletic gals. V necks can also help call attention to a lean torso, rather than your shoulders/arms (while halter tops, for example, could make your shoulders look bigger so you should stay away from those). The most important thing is to try stuff on at the mall though - be creative, don't forget to accessorize (cardigans, skinny belts around the waist, and scarves could all add dimension to your look), and keep an open mind!

So i really really like this guy(lets say a) and ive talked to a a few times before because we sat next to each other in health. Ever since then, i couldn't stop thinking about him. I really want to get him to like me but how? im kind of awkward and un confident so i wouldn't be good at randomly starting a convo. One time he gave me the "looking at you from head to toe" look and added a nod at the end! and one time he made fun of me(: Please help me out! i really like him. Right now, were in gym together and lunch, Any tips would be appreciated!! thanks in advance!!




Hey girl,

You gotta speak up and talk to him! That's the only way to grow closer to somebody, whether you like them as a friend or a crush. If you're scared to talk in person, try texting, IMing, or chatting on Facebook. If that's not possible, try to get in line next to him at lunch or stand next to him during gym so you can make small talk. Ask him a question about his interests or something he's involved in, like a sport. Even when you pass him in the hallways, a subtle smile or wave would be a great hint Smile

Ok, so i have DEEP BIG brown eyes with VERY long eyelashes...so today i tried to wear liquid eyeliner on top of my eyes, but for some reason it made my my eylashes look shorter... so what are some tips for wearing liquid eyeliner without making my eyelashes look shorter? Thanks =)




Hey girlie,

I think the secret is ALL in the mascara. When you apply the mascara, make sure you use the brush starting at the lash line to separate the lashes, then move it up slowly and hold it there on the tips for a few seconds, curling the lashes up. Let it dry, then come back 5-10 minutes later for another coat. It can help make your lashes seem like they kept their length Smile

Hey girl,

Try using safe neutrals that work with every eye color - that way, you don't have to worry about them changing! I love a shimmery gold with a chocolate brown eyeliner. You could also use peachy oranges Smile

Also, I don't want books that everyone has read like Harry Potter, Twilight, or The Hunger Games. Thanks!




Hey girlie,

The best way to get ANY club off the ground is to spread the word. Talk about it with your friends, put up flyers around your school, even get a teacher involved to make it more official. You have to work hard to make sure people know about it, but it sounds like a neat way to make friends, share your interest in reading, and enjoy books... go for it!!

im kinda quiet and sweet, and my bf's loud and really fun, but he gets in trouble by teachers a lot. i don't want to have him influence me like that, but i like him a lot 'cause he isnt afraid to share his opinion, and he makes me laugh and feel good inside. how do i tell him without making him feel bad about himself???




Hey girl,

Instead of trying to change him, try to focus on yourself and make sure you aren't swayed into behaving like this too. Sometimes people are just more out-spoken than others! As long as he isn't disrespecting you or getting involved in any dangerous/hurtful behaviors, try to embrace the fact that he speaks his mind and love the person he is Smile

I absolutely agree - and I have a ZERO tolerance policy for offensive language and bullying when I approve comments. I apologize for any of these comments being made public and will definitely let the rest of the mods know that this is not ok <3

my eyes are a combo of blue, grey, and green. somedays one or two colors dominate the others. im in modeling, and when people ask my eye color, what should i say? it varies.
and what colors would work for my eyes?
thanks!!(:




Hey girlie,

It's tough because your eyes change SO often, but try to think what color they are the most. I might say blue since they still probably look blue when they're mixed a bit with gray or green. It's possible that they look TOTALLY green/gray sometimes depending on what you're wearing or just your body, but I'd go with blue. Especially since you listed it first! Smile

what colors are good for gray eyes?? they're just straight gray, and all the colors i try look really weird with them! thx in advance Smile




Hey girl,

Love gray eyes! I would try a dark pink (like burgundy) for dramatic eyes, and light purple or pink shades for daytime. Navy blue, "cool" green like emerald, and neutral dark gray or brown can also work!

I have a grayish faded blue color eyes and I usually wear black eyeliner. If I were to wear eyeshadow instead one day, which color would be better: purple or black? I really like the smoky look and it looks much better than brighter colors.




Hey girl,

Both would look awesome with gray eyes, so you have to go with two things: 1) how you're feeling that day, and 2) if your eyes look more gray or more blue that day. If they're more blue and you're feeling dramatic, black would be so chic. But if you're feeling a little funky or fun and your eyes are more gray, go with the purple! Smile

i told this guy in my school i like him over facebook . he's in grade 8 and we don't talk that often but he is sooo sweet . once i told him he said "awwe , really?" and asked me to tell him in person . what does this mean ?! i dont wanna make a fool of myself in front of him !




Hey girl,

Well, he didn't have to say "aww" or anything! If he felt awkward or uncomfy with it, he probably wouldn't have answered at all. So this might be a good thing - and at least a sign that he's a nice guy! Try talking to him more in person. You don't have to start by telling him you like him again (it could make you feel super nervous), so instead just focus on developing your friendship in person for now. That's already a subtle hint that you're crushing on him, and he'll love it if you ask him questions about himself, his interests, etc. As you get to know him even better and get more comfy talking in person, you can flirt and tell him how you feel Smile

My mom doesn't let me wear makeup and i really want to how do i make her see that i am old enough HELP there is a dance next friday and i really want to wear makeup

 

 Hey girl! Your mom prob thinks you're too young to wear makeup on the reg. Show her that you're mature enough to wear it..for at least this special occasion! Go out of your way to not show her sass or attitude this week and be extra respectful. Approach in a calm mature way and ask her about the makeup sitch. If she still says no, its just bc she sees your natural beauty(and so does everyone else!!). Good luck! xo, Erin M.

Okay so I wear cover up, because I have dark circles under my eyes and they don't look pretty and sometimes my skin will look a lil red and blotchy. People are always asking me if I wear makeup, and I don't want them to know that i wear cover up. I rub it in good too! So how can I get rid of the dark circles and the red blotchyness on my skin? And how can I make my cover up look more natural? Thanks!

 

 Hey girl! Go to the mall to one of the stores or stands where they will show you how to apply face makeup properly to make it look natural. If ya like what they show ya, then buy the makeup. Good luck! xo, Erin M.

I have extremely pale skin, just so you know how pale I'm albino but I have a dirty blond hair color. Anyways my eyes change colors everyday from green,hazel,gold, and light brown. What would work with my skin and eyes?

 

Hey girl! Opt for pretty neutrals that look fab on any skin tone and will look especially amazing on you! Latte colored eyeshadow, brown liner, and brown mascara will do the trick! Good luck! xo, Erin M.

I have pretty light skin and I'm cool toned if that makes a difference. My eyes don't really fit in any of these colors! They are like this creepy but cool startling blue green color. Imagine the inside of a lime mixed with the ocean in the Caribbean, a bright aquamarine. That's most of my eye, but then I have an inner middle circle of yellow.
What colors?
I love this article, which would look best on me?
thank you!

 

Hey girl! First of all, your eyes sound gorgeous! Highlight them lining your bottom water line with a light turquoise liner and your top lid with black liner, then wear mascara only on the top! good luck! xo, Erin M.

Ok so I have blue eyes VERY fair skin and pinkish lips and strawberry blonde hair I want my eyes to pop I want to use mascara and eyeliner and eyeshadow but I usually use brown or grey eye shadow with brown eyeliner only on my top lid but nothing makes my eyes pop I look like I'm just trying to wear makeup but what I really want my eyes to pop and look like I 'm wearing makeup but not too much!

 

Hey gorgeous!! First of all, you're so lucky you have blue eyes! There are so many ways to make them POP. One of my personal faves is wearing gold eyeshadow on your top lid with black eyeliner and then wearing a turquoise liner on your water line. Top this look off with some mascara for extra prettiness! Good luck!

My eyes are darkish blue with a hint of green. My skin is really light (lowest foundation color and that sometimes isn't light enough) and with pink undertones. What color eyeshadow and clothing would look best on me?

 

Hey girl! A goldish-green eye shadow would look ah-mazing on you! Coral clothing would look fantastic on your skin tone! Good luck!

I have brown eyes and I swore off blue since the beginning.. and even moreso now because I was just in a musical where I had to wear bright blue eye shadow so now it just looks 80's to me.
