So you put the lip pencil on AFTER lipstick???
You could, it depends on the look you’re going for. In this sense it creates a sense of depth at the corners and brightness in the centre so if that’s what you want, then yes. If not, then maybe don’t. How you apply your lip liner depends on the colour of the liner, the consistency of the lipstick and the effect you want.

I want that look that looks like my lips were just glued onto my face. Like the one in the photo. xD
My boyfriend of over 2 years sent me a game over skype. He said he wants to try and make Pokemon games since I play them so much. I opened it up and was super excited.
It seemed really well done and was super ready to start on my adventure!
He left a lot of cute…

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions in email, twitter, and tumblr like this one:
“I can’t help but feel that as I white girl that it’s hard for me to write from the POV of a person of color. I realize that’s probably completely and utterly ridiculous, but I was…
This is good stuff!
A long time ago, I posted a question on Yeah Write that basically said, “I feel like I’m caught between a rock and a hard place. If I don’t include characters of color in my stories, I’ll be criticized for that. But if I do, I’ll probably be criticized for portraying the characters of color incorrectly. What do I do!?” (For reference, I am part of said-group of confused white girls.)
I got a lot of answers, but one really stuck out, and has stayed with me. The reply said something along the lines of, “Oh, you’re caught in a damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation due to your race? Welcome to our world. -POC.” That answer was the wakeup call that I needed—that, as Malinda Lo points out, there is no answer.

We know Kamala Khan is popular, but what does a sixth printing really mean?
Kamala Khan has enraptured the world as many times as she’s saved it. Now, the plucky Pakistani-American teen who made history as the new Ms Marvel, comics’ first ever lead Muslim superhero, is getting a rare sixth printing—and heralding a new era of diversity in comics.
Although the world of comics occupies an increasingly large part of the pop cultural domain—last year the industry did about $800 million in sales—the number of people who actually buy comics is relatively small. Most comics only average about 3,000 copies per printing; with Kamala now on her sixth printing, she’s headed towards a whopping 20,000 print copies sold.
Still, to put things in perspective, sixth printings are major milestones in the world of comics. Spider-Man Issue #583, the one with President Obama on the cover, only made it to a fifth printing despite making international headlines. Kamala now joins an elite lineup of bestselling comics that have performed beyond all expectations.
SEE, PUBLISHING WORLD!!
Not only is diversity interesting and cool and fun and healthy and good for everyone, IT FREAKING SELLS!
Signal boost, please!
Quite a few people requested some form of trait/personality generator, and here’s the result! I wanted to keep it vague enough that the options could work for any universe, be it modern, fantasy, scifi, or anything else, so these are really just the basics. Remember that a character is much more than a list of traits, and this should only be used as a starting point– I tried to include a variety of things, but further development is definitely a must.
Could pair well with the gender and sexuality generator.
To Play: Click and drag each gif, or if that isn’t working/you’re on mobile, just take a screenshot of the whole thing (multiple screenshots may be required if you want more than one trait from each category).
