okay so i'm extremely new to make up (like literally all i do is bb cream, powder foundation, eyeliner and mascara) but i kind of really want to get into some shadows and lipstick but i have no idea where to start or what would look good... i was thinking about going into pandora and just pretty much asking if they could assist me in where to start and everything but i was wondering if you have any tips?? or when you first started to get into make up what helped you find what's good?? thanks!

i don’t use shadow, but for beginners i would say play it safe and sticker to neutrals or baser colors since shadow isn’t for everybody and you don’t know how to properly apply it yet. finding a palette is a good idea, or you could always go with the ones coordinated for your specific eye color. with lipsticks it’s always a good idea to do basically the same and sticker to more normal, natural color before experimenting with bright or bolder hues. going out and swatching lipsticks on your hand works the best for determining what will look the best with your skin tone. i had no one to help me when i first started so my early years with makeup are, quite frankly, pretty horrifying. but i learned from my mistakes, thankfully, and it’s why i suggest staying away from the bold and bright and dramatic at first until you find your makeup niche

Did you see? Halt and Catch Fire got picked up for the 2nd season!

i did!! i’m so happy, because the show definitely deserves a second season. it hit its groove towards the end of its run and i don’t doubt that the writers (breaking bad and mad men, holla) can give the show what it deserves

A guy I know likes me and wants to ask me out. I like him too but I just don't want to be in a relationship him since I'm not a type of person that can really give their all in a relationship and that won't be fair for him. Any advice or an option on what to do?

tell him say. tell him that you like him and that you want to be in a relationship but that you’re not ready. if he’s a gentleman and truly likes you he’ll understand and respect that and wait. if not, well, you aren’t missing anything then. i’m in the same boat tbh. i can’t give my all in a relationship and that wouldn’t be fair, so i haven’t been actively seeking out romantic partners, and for the most part i’m completely fine with that

ugh i feel you, dude. i've been getting 7 texts in a row from the same guy 2x a day for a week, and i'm kinda sick of being nice. i liked him as a friend but his pushiness and severe over-enthusiasm have turned me off from wanting to talk to him AT ALL. people won't acknowledge 40 attempts of being turned down nicely, but freak out and blame you when the message gets across that you're not interested. "why are you being so bitchy???" "because letting you down nicely didn't work, genius"

exactly!! it makes me so irate when they don’t get the hint, or when they still blatantly keep pushing while thinking that we’ll cave eventually to their manly, domineering ways. it’s complete bullshit, and i’m sorry that you have to deal with this. no girl should. i have had guys be polite when i’ve turned them down, which i infinitely respect, but then you get the ones that are enraged, for some odd reason, when you dare to have a mind of your own and say no, sorry, you’re not my type. because then somehow it’s “bitchy” instead of “my personal preferences.”

Did you get asked out today?

i did not, but i had a very unpleasant experience on facebook a month ago where i politely turned a guy down and he began acting incredibly hostile and saying some awful things about me
