Why do these gurus continue to do cut crease makeup like it is something special? It is so dated now! Youtube reminds me of a place people get stuck in their glory days. For Cora its like 2006. Move on already.

Yes! To me, cut creases belong in the drag world.

This is the exact reason I've stopped watching pretty much all make up tutorials. Most gurus do like 2 different techniques for their make up max and once you've seen them, you have no need to watch the tutorials because then it's just shilling products under the guise of "guys these are the colours i'm using so if you want to recreate this look!" Bitch STFD there are very few differences between fluorescent pink #124345 and fluorescent pink #3452423.

I just took a look at the thumbnail of her newest video and that green-checkered dress? No, just no.

Some styles just aren't made for certain body types. A "straight tube" style dress as she calls it, is not for people with large stomachs. That pattern just accentuates her stomach even worse. If she is going the fashionista route, she should teach her subscribers how to flatter their body types and shapes.
Image

She did say that this dress wasn't her favorite, but didn't say why. Come on, it is the perfect opportunity to talk about what's wrong with it!

A lot of gurus are definitely stuck in the early 2000's, when pink cut creases were actually in. Cora also insists on having that ugly BOTF era manic panic pink skunk hair ( which looks atrocious with her green dresses ) The whole edgy scene look is so over. It died out as quickly as it showed up.

Another dated culprit is Marlena from makeupgeek. Her latest shadows are icy blue/ purple duochromes that are fit for Christina Aguilera, circa "Dirrty"

She cant cause there is nothing wrong with the dress itself. Itd flatter a lot of people. The problem is the person trying to squeeze herself into it. And she would never admit that SHE is the problem. She thinks she is fat and fabulous and can wear what she wants and looks good. Shes delusional. Im all for dressing in what you want but you also have to keep in mind your actual body and whats flattering if you wanna look your best. I dont want her dressing in moo moos only of course but she needs to realize she has a fat tummy and look up some ways to not draw attention to it.

But she likes to draw attention it as she always claims she has a relatively "slim" waist which is why she likes to wear belts a lot.

The cut of the dress isn't bad (it would flatter me perfectly aside from the color). I finally had a look at the video and found the first dress even worse, because of the excess-fabric around her breasts. The color also didn't really suit her.

That dress is one example why something like the clothes-rental-thing would never work for me. This would drive me nuts and I would take the dress in to be altered. Otherwise I wouldn't wear it.

I meant why the dress was wrong for her. I agree that clothing rental service would not be worth it and I wish she would stop plugging it.

Yeah im sorry she has no waist. She has the space between her breasts and her belly and that's not where a waist is lol. Soooo delusional if she thinks there is anything slim about her. Im not about to fat shame her in any way but damn at least be honest about your own body to yourself.

Thank you! Idgaf that she's fat tbh, and you CAN be curvy and fat. But... Cora's not. If she was a size 6 she'd probably have a very rectangular frame. She's just fat, can she please stop saying curvy and just go back to dressing what she thinks is cute so I can continue ignoring those videos.

I honestly think Cora needs to start working on getting healthier. Didn't she have a sponsored video for a health company or something? Yeah...only do something if you're getting paid for it. She is unhealthy and needs to be proactive.

Yep they all are so out of style. Makeup now is not as severe even when its bold. Yes you don't get teh WOW you're wearing 70000 colors on your eyes but it is much more on trend than what they're doing. MakeupGeek is the worst. She also describes herself as "curvy" when she's nothing but a half hacked off plastic surgery victim with 300 lb. legs.

I understand body acceptance but even being on the "curvy" side at a size 10 I know that not everthing looks good on me. Acting like you can wear everything just because you're so fat and fabulous and have so much confidence is ridiculous.

I'm all for being confident with yourself and I can respect that she is, I really can. But for crying out loud, she just lost her mother to a heart related issue, right? I lost my mom to heart disease when she was only 47. She wasn't overweight in any way, shape, or form. People can think weight doesn't attribute to health issues all they want, that's a load of crap. You can't tell me being 300lbs+ is healthy and that her doctor isn't telling her she should start doing something to at least shed a FEW pounds. It would suck to see her have a heart attack at 35 because she didn't try to eat a little better.

Unfortunately, in this current culture of "skinny shaming" and celebrating/normalizing obesity, the chances of Cora dying young are astronomical, unless she makes changes fast.

The fact that she carries most of her weight in her torso is also concerning. It is super unhealthy to have alot of visceral fat around the area. Especially for women.

If she already owns certain shades of these products, why not just swatch the ones she already owns? She opened up and used those new ones but then says she's going to give them away.

I can't get over how often she emphasised that she was going to give some of the products to her friends. She mentioned that she was going to give the lipsticks to her friends after she'd swatched it on her lips and the blushes after she'd run her fingers all over it.

I'm sorry, but that absolutely repulses me. Friend or not, I don't want to be using a lipstick that my friend has put all over her lips or a blush she's put her fingers through. Sanitised or not, thats kind of gross. If you know you're not going to like a lip colour,swatch it on the back of your hand! Use a brush to swatch blush colours because we don't apply blush by digging our fingers into it.

This whole video just grossed me out.

And again with the cake face around the nostrils when she did the close up of one of the colours.

Get your shit together, Cora!

I think she must be drunk in the last video! Her hair is super greasy, her eyes are very very waterly and shiny not like that from crying. She rambles repetes herself and talks shit that does not make sence. And her coordination is totaly out of place....

Man I used to love Cora. She was the first YouTube guru I watched, along with Michelle Phan back in the day. She was great at teaching & really seemed to love what she did. Now I just feel like her content is SO stagnant. As others have said, she's stuck in the pink cut-crease 2006 days. Honestly, I cringed when I saw the thumbnail for that Jem look.

Totally agree that it was tactless & just plain gross for her to spend a bunch of $$ while asking for donations...that was actually the way I found this thread! Really rubbed me the wrong way. Other than that, I have 2 current main annoyances w/ her:

1) I freaking hate how she made multiple vids about changing her hair, & now she's back to the same old stupid pink she always had. Like, are you dumb? Why put your hair through the process of lifting the pink just to ultimately end up back at pink? Not to mention its SOOOO dated....I actually liked it so much more when she first had her hair done that light orange color- probably bc I was just so relieved to not be staring at pink anymore.

2) Her whole new lookbook/fashion vids........just no. I'm so damn sick of hearing her shill Gwynnie Bee. Ok we get it, you're on their payroll. Honestly the packages on the site are very expensive, IMO. Of course, Cora probably gets hers for free for mentioning them her every waking breath. Also, I agree with everyone here who says seeing her stuff herself into bodycon/form fitting dresses is cringeworthy. I feel like Cora takes everything as a challenge when it comes to dressing herself- like she thinks dressing in an unflattering way is thumbing her nose at everyone who says she looks bad. Really, she's only hurting herself. No one is saying that people can't wear whatever they want. But I don't know anyone who thinks a 300+ lb. woman looks genuinely good in a tight dress that accentuates her huge stomach. I get that she doesn't care what people think & "dresses for herself", Cora there's no way you can tell me that when you stuff yourself into these sausage casings that you're comfortable. No one cares that you think you're being a rebel by dressing badly for your shape- everyone is rolling their eyes.

Tbh, she would have a much more interesting channel if she would do fashion reviews on FLATTERING styles that helped to downplay her problem areas. Trying to minimize your huge gut doesn't mean you're ashamed of yourself, Cora....to me it means you respect yourself enough to want to look your best. I always appreciate a plus sized woman's well put together outfit much more than an average sized woman, bc I know how much harder it is to dress a larger frame in a flattering way. The sooner Cora stops trying to prove something to everyone, the better.
