i want to know it when i’m still at home and can do something against it but i don’t like the way my boyfriend screams it around e.g. when we’re in public transportation

sometimes … when i can do something about it, or something i am unconsciously doing wrong all the time … but not when it’d make me worry about my look that day!

Well yes, I do want to know if I have wrong foundation/mascara flaking/smudges/harsh lines; however, I do not like when people criticize things like wearing “too red/orange…etc.” a lipstick because they like nudes more (I usually don’t wear any other makeup when I wear bold lips). In general, I would want them to tell me if something is actually wrong and not criticize my choice of colours/makeup.

I’m pretty much the same as you in terms of whether I like it or not. I like it that people tell me so I know what’s wrong but I dislike it if they make a passing remark saying that blues don’t go with greens or don’t wear so dramatic makeup during the day.

Definitely yes. Even if it is about my colour choices, because it’s important to me to know other people’s opinions. I think such criticism only hurts you when you don’t feel confident about your own look and then you should probably not wear it.

I dont mind I rather it be brought to my attention in a nice way rather than be a complete BICTH about it (like hahahaha she had the right idea but her technique is all wrong) Shut the @#*$*%%* up. If your gonna help the person-help! my 2 cents for the day 🙂

I agree with Brenda above! I’d like to know if there’s some sort of technical error that I’m making every day. But if you don’t like my choice of colors or creativity then I’d rather not know. I think I believe in “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all…” as far as people’s creative decisions are concerned.

what about a hairstyle? one that is VERY unflattering? i would want to know so i could make sure not to style it like that again!!

I’d prefer it if they’d (ie my DH) would tell me when I’m still at home rather than on our way someplace. So that I can fix it up there and then.

Yes, please so that I can know if I have lipstick on my teeth, my eyeshadow looks too clownish or 80’s or my makeup looks cakey or has a harsh line on my jaw line. These things i would beg that someone tell me. Just don’t tell me something that’s not fixable. that will just make me feel bad.

Id wanna know if its said in a helpful way without atttitude if its something fixable like a smear or fallout but not if its something like my color choices Ill wear what I want to

I would love to know if I make a mistake with my makeup. I think it’s kind of rude not to let someone know that there mascara is running!

if it’s something that i could easily fix…then yeah. like if i have a smudge, my mascara’s running, or i missed a spot with my concealer or something tiny like that. but it kinda bugs me when people are like “wow. you really shouldn’t wear that color.” or something like that.

Only if its in a positive way. Not just like, I don’t like that color on you! More like, that color would bring out your lips if it was just a few shades darker, lighter, etc.

It really depends on who it’s from – I can take it from my friends, they can tell me pretty much anything. But if it’s from someone that just wants to make a point out of the fact that I have panda eyes (or whatever) then I don’t really appreciate it. I also want to be able to do something about it – if you’ve put on too much foundation (or waaay to dark!) there is usually not much you can do about it. Keeping this in mind, if your friends decide to tell you about it, it just usually leaves you insecure (because you can’t really do anything about it, and you look like a fool!). So I’m kind of mixed about the question!

I would beg for people to tell me if I did not blend my eyeshadows well (and therefore have very harsh lines that just look ridiculous), if I have lipstick on my teeth, if I put too much blush on and I look like a clown, if my eyeliner is smudging and I look like death, if I missed a spot with my foundation, if my lipstick/lipgloss is bleeding.

But if you’re going to tell me that you don’t like the eyeshadow combinations I use or if you think I wear too much make up then just get out of my face lol.

I never really have this problem because before I leave the house i make my mom inspect my makeup and if it looks bad trust me she will say somthing

(Omg ur eyeshadow isnt blended)

Yes, in two instances: 1. I’m putting my pic out there for critique, and if it’s something that ACTUALLY doesn’t look good or something that will actually help me to hear & 2. If I’m out in public and I’ve got like a smudge of eyeliner on my cheek or something lol
