dupes/alternatives masterpost ✨

Hey loves, this masterpost was partially requested and I’m so excited.  I recommend to do your research before buying the dupe, some of the dupes are better than others. Some brands are repeated. Here is a dupe masterpost for MAC lipsticks. Here is a dupe masterpost for liquid lipsticks. Here is a spreadsheet of Coastal Scents eyeshadows to MAC eyeshadow dupes. Most of these dupes I found online so I do not take credit for any of those but some I researched myself. This is under read more because this list is very long. :) If you have any more dupes or questions, feel free to send them in.

Makeup Application Order

Everyone does their makeup differently, but the most consistent complaint I hear from those who are getting started is: What should i do first?  Here’s my morning routine + some of my faves:

1- Moisturize if needed (never a bad idea though)

2- Primer (I use Porefessional)

3- Foundation (Urban Decay’s Naked Skin - it’s a light foundation vs the full coverage of their all-nighter brand which i used to use more)

4- Color correcting if needed

—Orange tones help mask Blue hues from facial hair, Greens help hide Reds (pimples and such), and many other options as needed

5- Highlight (Tarte’s shape tape is my current fav)


7- Translucent setting/finishing powder

8- Contour + blending (I prefer powders as they’re more forgiving than cremes)

9- Blush

10- Eye shadow primer (Urban Decay’s is fantastic)

11- Eye Shadow

12- Mascara Primer (”They’re real”)

13- Mascara of choice

14- Eyebrows = shaping + filling as needed

15- Lip (Buxom’s Dani is my normal everyday go to)

16- Setting Spray (Urban Decay has a few great products here, but i love the “Chill” setting spray as my bathroom is usually kinda hot by this point due to the lights)

I know it seems like lot for every morning, but my routine is down to ~20 minutes since i have a very standard look i repeat all the time

Felix x Reader - Q&A

Type - Fluff

Warnings - Maybe cursing? I forget

Summary(Not really a summary but whatever) - Making my boyfriend do a Q&A for my channel turned out better and worse than I thought it would


All my make up was set out on my desk with my camera set up and ring light on. The boys of Stray Kids were over at my apartment, just chilling and playing my video games since they didn’t have the game console that I did.

“Felix! Come here!” I yelled out to the boy as I turned on my back light. He walked into my room with a curious look.

“What’s up?” He asked as I smiled at him. Grabbing his hand, I forced him to sit in my spiny chair that I normally used to film. Pulling up a chair, I handed him my phone with my twitter open.

“We are doing a Q and A while I do your makeup.” I smiled as he groaned. “My face broke out so I need to wait till it gets better and you’re here so why not?” I asked with a pout.

“Because I’m a guy who doesn’t wear makeup.” He tried to say with a straight face.

“That is such bull shit. You wear more makeup than me on a daily bases.” I laughed. He still looked reluctant. “What if I give you a kiss?” My suggestion made him nod as I laughed even more. Leaning close to him, I placed my lips on his and stayed like that for a few seconds before pulling back. “Happy?”

“Very.” Getting up, I placed the ‘recording’ sign on my door and told the boys to be quiet for a while. Turning the camera on, I did my intro.

“Hey guys!” I then giggled, making Felix smile while looking at me. “As you can see, I have someone here with me! Introduce yourself.” I smiled at him.

“Hey guys! I’m Felix from Stray Kids.” He waved at the camera.

“This little fluff ball is here to help me with the Q and A while I do his makeup.” He nodded, looking at the camera. “This is actually the first time that you’ve been on my channel, right?”


“Have you seen any of my videos?”

“What kind of boyfriend would I be if I hadn’t?”

“A worse one than you already are?”

“Hey!” We laughed for a second before getting back on track. “Okay, but yeah! I guess let’s get into this! I asked you guys to send me some questions on twitter, so this little mosquito over here will read the questions as I explain what I’m doing.” I looked at him and he agreed. Picking up the foundation I chose before hand, I held it up to the camera.

“Okay, so I have no clue if this is his color, but this is the natural wear foundation from NARS and we’ll just be putting this all over the skin. No, wait! We are going to put down some porefessional first to smooth out his skin so everything lays flat.” I patted the product onto his face as he looked through the questions.

“Oh heres one. Do you want to get married and if so with who?” He asked, raising his eye brows at me while I laughed.

“One day, yes. I’m not sure who with though. Maybe Tom Holland? He’s my little soft baby and I love him and his acting so much.” I joked around, earning a light slap on the shoulder. “No, I’m just kidding. The way things are now, yes, I’d be willing to marry Felix. But who knows? We’re young and the world is new to us. Let’s see where it takes us.” I said as he nodded.

“Yeah, I would marry you too but who knows where we’ll be in 10 years.”

“I’ll be 30…” I mumbled with a dumb smile on my face, getting more product for his face.

“Okay, biggest regret?”

“Not asking out Chris.” I instantly said, getting slapped again while we laughed. “I don’t regret anything I do.”

“Mine was probably in, like, 3rd grade. I tried to impress this girl I thought was cute at the time. My dumb brain was like ‘hey, do a flip’, and my even dumber self was like ‘sure’. And I did. And I landed on my face.” I laughed at him as he looked at me with a soft smile.

“Quite the womanizer, aren’t you?”

“I got you, did I not?”

“Yeah, I’ll give you that.” I said, starting on contouring his face.

“What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?” Felix asked.

“You can answer first.” I quietly mumbled, focused on what I was doing.

“100% auditioning for JYP. It is a crazy storm of ‘what the hell’ that I didn’t quite think about while sending in my information and everything.” He explained, turning to me.

“Saying yes to dating you.” I laughed. “Let me explain before you hit me again!” I rushed out with a smile, seeing his smirking face. “I’ve never actually been in a relationship, as you know, and this just wasn’t what I was expecting. Everyone says that your significant other is your best friend. While that is true I’m kinda’ dating 9 dorks, so it’s also not true. I mean, only one gets kisses, but they all treat me so good. But, they are crazy. All that to say, when I said yes to you, I signed up to be around and talking to 9 idiots 24/7. I love them all though so it’s fine.” I finished with a small smile. Felix was looking at me with love in his eyes the whole time and once I was done talking he kissed my cheek.

“You’re too cute.” He said, wrapping his arms around my shoulders.

“Shush it.” I said, going back to setting his face. Once that was done, I went on to the eyebrows and eyes.

“How do you recharge?”

“A nice face mask and a bubble bath.” I smiled towards the camera.

“Sleep and cuddling.” He said. Just when he found another question, Jisung and Chan walked into my room.

“Hey!” Jisung yelled.

“Hey!” I yelled back. “Didn’t you see the ‘recording’ sign?” I giggled as Felix spun around to look at the guys.

“Yeah, but we ignored it.” Chan answered as they sat on my bed that was in the background.

“Well since you’re here, you are staying till the end. Felix, ask them some questions too.”

“Okay.” He smiled. “What do you want your final words to be?” He asked the three of us.

“Thank you for the wonderful life I was given.” I said while working on Felix’s eyes.

“I just wish I had one more bowl of chili.” Chan said.

“I’d hate to die twice-it’s so boring.” Jisung also said, as the three guys laughed.

“Last words are for idiots who haven’t said enough.” Felix added.

“I feel like you’d be talking up a storm on your death bed then.” I mumbled and the room went into chaos.

“ThAnKs!” He sarcastically said. “What do you judge people most often for? Oh, I know this one for (N/n).”

“I don’t judge people! Or I try not to.”

“No, you judge me and Chan all the time for our accent!”

“Oh, no shit! You two over exadrate them so much sometimes!” I laugh/yelled at him. He just turned to Chan, and with a heavier than normal accent said-

“She’s just jealous, mate. We’d never make fun of her accent!”

“I know! I hope that she learn how to be nicer to people.”

“Oh my- I’m done!” I pretended to get up while the three boy laughed at me. Felix pecked my cheek once I sat back down.

“We forgive you, right Chan?”

“Yeah, you’re cool with us.”

“Ya’ see what I have to deal with?” I asked the camera. “The only nice one here is Jisung. This is why I like him the most.” Chaos ensued again. After a while, I finished the makeup look and turned off the camera. Helping Felix with getting the makeup off, we talked.

“Thanks for doing that for me.” I smiled at him through the mirror in the bathroom as he washed his face.

“No problem baby.” I watched him for a while till he noticed. Turning around, he wrapped his arms around my waist and brought me closer so my hands rested on his chest. My head tilted to the side as I looked at him. He smiled and pulled me in for a kiss. Naturally, I kissed back and leaned closer to him. We stayed like that for a while before pulling back. We both began to laugh for some reason.

“I love you.” He mumbled, pulling my head so it rested on his chest as he rested his chin on the crown of my head.

“I love you too.” I smiled. We stayed like that for a minute before going into the living room to play video games with the rest of the guys.

I just thought I’d share this product with you girls! It’s Maybellines New Baby Skin instant pore eraser!!! This is a great dupe for Benefits Porefessional! It feels the same & makes your skin flawless just like the benefit one. The best part is that it’s only $6 at walmart or any drug store. That’s nothing compared to the $30 that Porefessional goes for.
