Well, yeah, lol. On a regular basis, I correct my brows. They just have always been two totally different shapes; one is higher than the other, one is longer than the other, the arches grow differently on both, etc. I try to even them out as much as possible and fill in sparse areas. I use techniques to correct and enhance my eye shape because they are small and the upper lashline curves downward…it’s like a rounded almond shape or something, so I use techniques to elongate and lift the eye. Sometimes I will contour and highlight. Of course I conceal, haha. Also, when I do brighter lips, I have to correct my lip shape on bottom because on the right side it goes up more than the other AND there’s two scars there from when I bit through my lip, so super noticeable with bold lips unless I correct with lipliner.

The only thing I don’t really correct; my big, beautiful, Roman nose! LOL.

I correct my dark circles, and I put a bit of concealer on my facial birthmarks. I can’t be bothered with contouring, I’m pretty lazy.

i like to highlight, conceal and after i conceal i like to add pink back into my face.

i always only use a blush whether it be a natural light pink or a peachy pink. I haven’t found a bronzer that looks good with my skin tone yet and that’s one of the reasons i don’t contour.

also because i don’t have any signs of natural shadows under my cheek bones so when i contour it just looks like a flat blended swipe of bronzer.

i hate filling in my brows because it shows off how uneven they are and because my brows are so dark anyways it just looks bad if i try to fill them in.

Nevaaaa! I love makeup to add color and have fun! I personally never use it to correct. I’ve felt compelled to cover up zits… but get distracted with trying to come with new color combo for my eyes! Makeup and ADHD can be fun!

I think all makeup could fall into this category! I lengthen my lashes with mascara, thicken their appearance with eyeliner….

I want to find a good concealer!

Concealer is a god-send for me. I have an endocrine disorder (PCOS) that, despite dozens of topicals and two courses of Accutane, results in a constant smattering of spots. I use MUFE Full Cover Concealer, which is $36 where I live. It’s the only concealer I’ve ever tried that stays put and matches my pale skin perfectly without being too orange, so the price doesn’t bother me one bit. There’s a lot of societal shaming around acne, so polishing my skin is essential if I want to be taken seriously as a professional.

i have to fill in my brows, because their are naturally very thin!!.. i also try to make my eyes look wider by highlighting the inner corner!

No. I don’t like my nose (it’s a bit big, I think) but by emphasizing my best feature (my eyes) I take away the attention from my nose.

I almost always apply some sort of lipstick to make my lips look soft and really pop. I have full lips so putting even a little color really helps them stand out.

I highlight my cheekbones to make them visible, and occasionally use bronzer to define my cheekbones and jawline. I apply lipstick and gloss slightly beyond my top lip boundary because my top lip is much smaller than my bottom lip. I also fill in my brows to make them even!

Brows – They are sparse and I fill them in with a liner or brow pencil and set with a brown e/s and then dust a corrective powder over the area.

Lashes – My right eye lashes are longer than my left eye lashes, so I use a lengthening mascara on my left eye and then use my regular mascara on both eyelashes.

Under eyes and the area between my nose and eye – I have semi-dark circles under my eyes and I have very thin skin between my eye and nose and it looks like a seam of green running up the area (if that makes sense).

Acne scars – CONCEALER!!!

Hollows of cheeks – Even though I have a fat face, my cheeks have hollows and I contour/bronze the heck out of them.

I think that’s about it.

I really try to, but I’m not sure if I’m using the best products for it. I use a highlighter down my nose to try and thin it, with a darker concealer at the sides, and highlight at the nostrils. It isn’t that noticeable but I was wondering about switching to Laura Mercier conealer to achieve a more natural look, if anyone had any ideas about this I’d be very grateful!

I also have an unsymmetrical face so I try and balance it out with highlighting my brow bones and cheeks at the very tops, subtly. It is the same with my lips, I’ll use concealer around my lips to try and make sure that when I apply lipstick or gloss my top lip looks even.

The main thing though in my opinion is to love the way you look, accept it, don’t try and correct everything. Become comfortable with yourself or else it’s a horrible battle everyday between your mind and your reflection.

I use some foundation (MAC NC15), fill in my eyebrows. That’s the correction I do. The I finish it with some blush & mascara. Not too much make-up, I still look like me but better 🙂

i should…my cheeks :)) they’re a bit chubby-ish considering how skinny i am but i usually forget to even apply blush 🙁
i also try and try to correct my dark puffy eye circles…even tho i put a ton of stuff on them they’re never covered well. maybe with an expensive full coverage concealer(tho i doubt it’d erase them)..but i can’t for now. 🙁

My biggest “flaw” is my dark circles so I conceal the daylights out of those. I’ve only recently started filling in my brows and only do it occasionally because it hasn’t really become habit.
