75 Older People Making Us Laugh With Their Facebook Posts

Published

on

The first time you saw an “Accept Friend Request” on Facebook from your grandpa, grandma, or older family relative, you might not have realized your Facebook experience was about to change. Social media and older people can go two ways. One, they are great at technology and everything is fine. Two, they do not understand technology in the slightest and your Facebook feed starts to get a bit weird. From voice dictation gone wrong, typos, wrong pictures, or comments gone awry, older people can fail at Facebook. Yet, those fails are usually so funny they are the best part of your Facebook feed.

Here are 75 Facebook posts from old people that will have you laughing out loud.

1. Connection Issues

She wants to connect to wifi and Facebook is just not helping her at all. If she does not connect to wifi soon, she might use up all her data on her cellphone plan.

2. Cancel Culture

Cancel was written in all capitals, so it must be read in a yelling voice. It makes it that much better. You have to wonder, what did she do by mistake?

3. Online Slang

It is best to learn the existing online slang before making one up yourself. STD’s are shared, but usually are not thanked when they are received. Save the dates, however, are something to be thankful for. She should have just spelled it out.

4. TMI

There are some things that do not need to be shared on Facebook. She knows how to use Facebook, with even the correct banner background. Yet, some things are better left unsaid.

5. Addicted

She is so addicted to Facebook that she could not resist from taking a selfie during church service. She also stated it was boring. Hopefully she isn’t Facebook friends with anyone from her church, the next service might be awkward if she is.

6. Fire Party

The wrong banner background can completely change the tone of a post. This older person just wanted everyone to be aware of the fire in Paris, but she made it more of a party announcement instead.

7. Straight Fact

This Facebook user still goes by the rule that honesty is the best policy. Older people know what they feel and think. They are also not afraid to let everyone else know it too.

8. Proud Mom

There is nothing her son can do that would not make her any less proud. When she looks at her son there are only stars in her eyes.

Save

9. First Post

This was a grandma’s first post on Facebook. It can only go up from there, but it probably stayed about the same. The roses were a nice touch to her “we.”

10. Logos

This user knows what they are talking about. The toys are Logo Blocks and that is their final answer. Good luck finding Logos at Walmart.

Save

11. Hank The Helper

Sharon took to Facebook for help but only found Hank. Hank thought a song from the 1980s would be a funny joke, but apologized when he realized Sharon was not laughing. It is only fair that Hank apologized, since Sharon did for her misspellings.

12. In Charge

He wants all his friends to know he is in charge of all social media, not just Facebook. If you swear than you will be deleted from all social media. Take your chance with swearing around this man, he is the Facebook swearing police.

13. Toilet Paper Shortage

2020 was the year of toilet paper shortages because of people hoarding them. This grandma did not have to worry and wanted everyone to see her trick. She can use that entire roll for a whole month!

14. A Laughing Matter

One does not usually laugh when they pray. A younger member of the family in this person’s life should give them the heads up about that emoji. The emoji is not crying from sadness but from laughing too hard.

15. Not Wrong

This person is not wrong with their statement. Yet, Facebook might not be the most helpful in finding out that answer.

Save

16. Lost Purse

If her purse is anywhere near her emojis she probably does not want it found. She was very polite in her asking by including “dear.” Yet, is everyone on Facebook her dears?

Grandma must have never really cared for Dennis. She is willing to roast him over Facebook with zero cares.

Save

Source: Reddit

18. Meme Confusion

If you have to explain the meme, the meme was never really that funny to begin with. Since this is an older person, everyone will let it slide though. The first thing someone needs to explain is what memes are and then explain this one.

Save

19. Just In Case

They had to cover all their bases before posting their new item for sale. They wanted no confusion about it, this is a ceramic pig and not a real one. Just in case anyone might have been confused by the pictures and how realistic it looks.

When grandma says search, everyone better start searching. They might not know what grandma was searching for but they are sure ready to jump in and search with her.

21. Ponch

22. Do Not Eat

The poop emoji strikes again. She tried to be creative with her question but did not realize she was posting a poop background. Another person has lost to the poop emoji.

25. Frito Feet

There is nothing that can happen without Josh letting his Facebook friends know. There is also nothing his dog can do that would ever make him love it any less. Heart eye emojis were a perfect background with his precise observation.

26. Update

One nephew went on Facebook and received an update from his aunt that he really did not need to know. It does not seem like the aunt is too mad or sad about throwing up with her avatar.

Save

27. Don’t Care

A message of condolences went awry and she had no idea how to remove it. When she reached out for her child to help, they did not even know. The “don’t care” was up in the comments for way too long.

This person was just keeping it real with their post. It was not cheery enough for one older person who tried to cheer them up. The poop emoji strikes again.

This post has no place for heart eye emojis. She was not living with happy heart eyes at the time and they had no place as her background.

Save

33. Sign Off

She was staying polite with a signing off “well bye.” All she needs is a good microwave and she had nothing else to say except “well bye.” Facebook is not known for its politeness but she is standing strong.

Save

34. Oh, Amy

Amy got a lot more information on Facebook than she thought she would that Easter. Her sister was not going to wait until they were in person or on the phone to let her know what was going on. Amy needs to call her.

35. Who Is This?

This person’s Facebook post is a lot more ominous than it should be. Who is this? Who is anyone? Who is Facebook? Too many questions will lead one down the rabbit hole.

36. Facebook Drama

If you thought older people were immune from getting involved with Facebook drama, Sue and Juanita are here to prove you wrong. Sue and Juanita had no problem saying what they thought.

37. Keep It In The Bedroom

All their grandkids and kids are forever scarred after seeing their grandpa’s post. Their only hope is their grandma letting him know she does not approve of his underwear search. What happens in the grandparents bedroom should stay in their bedroom.

38. A Mother’s Worry

It has been a long week for this person and they are starting to get worried. Hey, it might be TMI but they had 16 comments to the question. This is an A+ old people Facebook question and their friends had a lot to respond with.

Save

41. One Picture Too Many

She posted one too many photos from her collection. All it takes is a slip of the finger on the phone and one picture can accidentally get posted. Which picture is she saying is sturdy, the stand or the man?

Save

42. Tweeting and Tooting

David makes himself laugh and, in the end, that is all that really matters. How long do you think David was waiting to use that joke? Did he have it ready for awhile or think of it and automatically post it?

All it takes is on typo to completely change the messaging of a post. If he got carnivorous all the animals in Italy should have ran away in fear. It was the only way he was going to survive, meat.

49. Wrong Background

Facebook should hold a tutorial on their backgrounds for older people. It would be helpful for situations like this to never happen again. It was obviously the last thing on her mind though.

She might never be asked to go to a party again if she is bringing glaucoma as her snack. That is one downer of a party item.

Save

53. The Worst Chris

This Facebook user was a bit too broad for their recommendation area. They might want to narrow down their area if they want an electrician near them.

65. Philosophical

Grandma is starting to get a bit philosophical with her Facebook posts. I’m…. that is the question. Facebook posts are not supposed to make anyone think too hard.

66. No

If you thought her post of “no” was on accident you were proven wrong. Instead of just not posting because of her sadness, she still posted as far as she got.

74. No

There is no one on Facebook that is going to tell this person how to live their life. They are not having a good morning and they do not need a happy reminder to those that are. Once you have lived long enough you get to say no as much as you want.

Couples can make the rest of us roll our eyes.

From their gooey-eyed looks at each other, to being forced to listen to the story of how they met for the fifth time, people in love just have to show it off.

If you’re that couple, you might recognize some of these moments, even if you don’t always find them the cutest parts of being in a relationship.

Here are some of the more wholesome moments you’ve likely shared with our partners:

1. You’re each other’s cheerleaders

Being in a relationship means you have a built-in cheerleader for when you do anything remotely impressive.

Being a little annoyed doesn’t mean you’re going to withhold your affection completely.

That feeling of being shocked and then overjoyed that you are going to get to introduce them to a song or movie that you love. Just don’t talk through it or demand that they love it. And if you’re the one being introduced to something new, you work up at least a little bit of enthusiasm.

50+ Tips And Tricks Revealed By Makeup Artists

Published

on

New year, new you! Maybe one of your resolutions this year is to get more enthusiastic about applying your makeup every morning or to try a new eyeshadow shade, or maybe you are just looking for new ways to get the best bang for your buck.

We did the research for you and found a bunch of makeup hacks revealed by actual makeup artists themselves. Hopefully one of these tips will come in handy!

1.) Use the right foundation for your skin type

Use a water-based foundation if you have oily skin. Use an oil-based foundation if you have dry skin. Everyone is different.

2.) You don’t need a lip liner with your liquid matte lipstick

And if anyone tells you that you do, they are a liar. Almost all liquid lipsticks do just fine on their own.

Source: Instagram

3.) Let your eyelid primer dry before adding eyeshadow

And after the primer dries, coat them with a light, neutral color all over your lid. This will act as a base and will make it easier to blend colors together. If you want a dark color, slowly build it – first with light colors, and then darker. Don’t just go straight from light to dark.

4.) Save your mascara brush

Fun fact: most of the mascara magic actually comes from the brush. So if you found one that really works for you, save the brush when you’re done, clean it, and try using it with a cheaper bottle! It’s really not necessary to spend big bucks on this.

5.) Make your matte, full-coverage concealer look more natural with primer oil or coconut oil

Use just a drop of the oil of your choice and it will make your heavy concealer more radiant, easy to blend, and natural. It also helps with creasing!

6.) Use hairspray to tame full eyebrows

First, spray hairspray on a clean, disposable mascara wand. Then brush your brows up and into the shape you’re going for. If it makes the hair on our head stay in place, it definitely works for the hair on our face!

7.) Wet your brush before applying highlighter

It will instantly give it a little more glow.

8.) Don’t apply primer with your fingers

It can cause micro-exfoliation, which causes clumps.

9.) Use a matte bronzer to make your eyes look bigger

If you’re doing a full face of makeup but want to keep your eyes bare, put a little bit of matte bronzer in your lid crease and bottom lashline. That way, they will still be bare, but they will also appear bigger.

10.) Never use face soap with sodium laureth sulfate

Makeup artists swear that it dries out your skin.

11.) Stick to matte eyeshadows and powders if you have fine lines on and around your eyelids

Using something shimmery usually accentuates those lines.

12.) Always do your eye makeup before your foundation

That way, you will have an easier time cleaning up any fallout from your eyeshadow.

13.) Always exfoliate and prime your lips with a serum

Especially when using a liquid matte lipstick. Cracked lips will show!

14.) Use scotch tape for the perfect eyeliner wing

Angle it from your eye to your eyebrow for the crispest, cleanest eyeliner wing you’ll ever see. Boom, magic.

15.) Use eyeshadow primer on the lash line

Then sweep eyeshadow on top with a fine liner brush to create a smudge-proof eyeliner. Now if you’re out of eyeliner, you can use your shadows for the same effect!

16.) You can also use a cotton pad

If you use cotton pads to apply your face makeup, use those same pads for your eyeliner! Simply fold it in half and use the straight side to line up with your eye for the perfect sweep. No tape needed.

17.) If you accidentally get mascara around your eyes, let it dry

Wait 5 minutes or so and then swipe it away with a Q-tip. At that point, it should flake off and not smudge.

18.) Never share makeup brushes

It’s super unsanitary.

19.) Tarte’s Timeless Smoothing Primeris an absolute must

It’s soft and it doesn’t clog pores. What more could you want?

20.) Imagine a line from the outer corner of your eye to the tip of your brow. This is where your eyeshadow should stop.

A lot of times, people make the mistake of not bringing out their eyeshadow far enough. This can actually make the eyebrow look smaller.

21.) If you’re just starting out and want to learn how to contour, put the contour color on a brush or sponge first

It will be harder to blend if you draw it on directly like lines.

22.) Don’t sleep in your makeup

“Skin needs time to breathe and when you’re sleeping, your body is repairing the most. Sleeping in makeup is not only messy, but it causes breakouts, premature aging, and stained bedding. Take care of your skin, loves!”

23.) Don’t recreate the celebrities

“Those looks are made for them, their skin type, skin tone, and face shape. People always come into my shop and request to look like Kim Kardashian and I have to explain to them that it might not work on them and sometimes they even get upset when it doesn’t turn out. Yes, I can do it, but it won’t look good on you. Instead ask for something dramatic like Kim Kardashian or whatever you want but do not ask to look like them!”

24.) Invest in good skin care products

“Your makeup, no matter how much you paid for it, will not look its best when it’s added on top of dry, scaly, splotchy, oily and just plain unhappy skin. Want to get makeup optional skin? INVEST in skin care.”

25.) Don’t start from the top lash line if you’re doing winged eyeliner, use the bottom lash line for a smoother, straighter line

And look at the wing you drew first while drawing your second one.

26.) Never store your makeup in a bathroom cabinet

The humidity can cause it to alter and go bad before its time, plus toilet germs.

27.) Blend your foundation out onto your neck

“When wearing foundation please blend it out. Put product on your jawline, and blend it out into your neck. Also blend the foundation along the edges of your face out. It’ll help create a natural look and make it less obvious you’re wearing foundation, plus it will visually improve your color match.”

28.) Don’t use stark white concealer under your eyes

“Use an under-eye concealer one shade lighter than your face concealer, not two or three shades. It will give you a naturally bright effect instead of a contrasting white effect, which looks super unnatural.”

29.) Apply setting powder with a damp beauty blender or brush

This does wonders for people with dry or textured skin and gives a smooth, airbrushed finish.

30.) The same foundation that works for you in the summer might not work for you in the winter

For example, I use a more moisturizing foundation in the winter (Too Faced Born This Way) and prefer a more matte coverage in the summer (Hourglass Stick Foundation).

31.) For eyeshadow, tap the excess eyeshadow off the brush

Also hold the brush farther from the handle for more control.

32.) Blend your foundation into your hairline and make sure to contour that too

Everyone knows to drag their makeup down their neck a little bit, but too often I see people with a line between their makeup and hair. Not a good look!

33.) Stop blowing on your makeup brushes

“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people do this and it makes me cringe. Brushes already harbor bacteria if not cleaned and taken care of properly; you blowing on your brushes and getting saliva particles all over it isn’t helping considering you’re applying it directly to your face therefore causing breakouts, clogged pores, etc. If you’ve picked up too much product, just tap it off or give your brush a little shake.”

34.) Use a foundation one shade darker on the outer edge of your face to add depth

35.) If your skin is very oily, apply a light layer of powder after you apply your primer and before you apply your foundation

It’ll give you a smoother look. Also, baby powder works great for baking your face. I use it for everything!

36.) Glowing cheeks that look natural

“”Add your favorite blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a glow that looks like it’s coming from beneath the skin. A bright, warm pink at the apple is perfect for any complexion.”

– James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn

37.) Multi-colors on the cheeks is important

“Apply two shades of blush for the perfect flush of youth. Pink, or anything in the red family should be placed on the apple of the cheek; it will give the effect of blood coming to the surface. Peach, coral, or anything in the orange family should be applied to the highest point of the cheekbone; that gives the effect of heat rising. Finish by bringing a matte bronzer to the skin where sun hits the face (forehead, cheekbone, bridge of nose, and chin).”

38.) Lighten your coverage

“Mixing foundation with moisturizer is an easy way to lighten your coverage options if you already have a fuller coverage foundation.”

39.) Make sure those lashes get coated

“Use the handle of a brush to lift the eyelid at the base of the lashes to roll your lashes up and back; this allows you to wiggle the mascara wand against the base of the lashes and pull through any clumps in a clean and precise manner.”

– Kara Yoshimoto Bua, Chanel celebrity makeup artist

40.) Don’t be afraid of red

“If you want to find the perfect red for your complexion, try applying one lip color that has the same undertone as your complexion all over the lip: Cool uses cool, warm uses warm. Apply a red with the opposite tone just to the center for a lip that looks full and fantastic.”

41.) Reach for the school supplies

“No. 2 pencils are the perfect graphite shade to sketch in natural eyebrow hairs. Sharpen one to a point and draw in lightly for a finished brow.”

“To make foundation thicker, mix in a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)”

“To reduce puffiness, pop eye lotion in the icebox and apply to lids before eye makeup.”

44.) Find the right lip shade

“Test lipstick on the inside of your fingertip, rather than on the back of your hand. The pad of your finger closely resembles your own lip color, so see which one looks best there, then move to the lips.”

45.) The power of gold

“Gold powder pigment is a great way to lengthen lashes or brows. Use a clean spoolie brush, toothbrush, or mascara wand, and brush a bronze or yellow gold pigment through a mascared lash or brow for a beautiful effect that adds dimension without looking hard.”

46.) Who knew?

“Halloween is the perfect time to stock up on some unexpected essentials. Fake blood is the ideal blush shade. Add it to the apple of the cheek for any skin tone—it looks like a natural flush of color coming though the skin.”

48.) If it works, it works!

“As a little girl, I would watch my mother apply egg whites to her face (especially around her eyes) about an hour or two before going out to a special event. She would take one egg, separate it, whisk it until it was frothy, and apply the egg white all over her face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After, she would wash it off with lukewarm water and immediately apply her makeup. The egg white tightens the skin and wrinkles to give you a temporary facelift.”

49.) Who doesn’t want to look younger?

“My favorite ‘look younger’ makeup tip is to first use a luminizer in the inner corner, then swoop it with a fan brush underneath the eye. This brightens the face.”

– Deanna Melluso, celebrity makeup artist

50.) Pucker that pout

“Use a flesh-toned eyeliner to outline the lips along the Cupid’s bow. This reduces the chance of feathering and makes lips appear fuller.”

51.) Better safe than sorry

“If you can’t find a perfect shade, buy one that’s slightly darker than your skin and one that’s slightly lighter, then fine-tune the color yourself.”

52.) Strange but effective

“Pull your bottom lip down and look at the inside color. Pick a lipstick shade that’s either lighter or a bit deeper but along the same tone as the inside of your lip. Oh, and don’t do this in public.”

53.) Buff, buff, buff!

“Buff, buff, buff foundation into the skin — quickly, like a whirlwind — with a brush. It ensures the coverage won’t look heavy-handed.”

“What A Dreamboat!” Makeover Transforms Shy Teen After Dramatic Weight Loss

Published

on

Christopher Hopkins, aka “The Makeover Guy” is known for transforming men and women over 40 into the best selves. But in 2019, he took on the task of a teenager.

Little did he know that Phoenix’s makeover would be one of his most powerful.

Teenage trauma

Phoenix found himself in Hopkin’s Minneapolis “appearance studio” after a big weight loss. The previous school year, he weighed in and 250 pounds.

His transformation wasn’t easy.

He managed to lose 100 pounds by counting his macronutrients (think of it as going a step farther than calorie-counting) and working out every day with a personal trainer

That’s a big commitment for a teenager!

But Phoenix is dedicated and fearless. Hence his desire to put his head in the hands of Hopkins for a whole new style.

He’s already a handsome young man (with hair most people covet), but he decided it was time for a change. And if you’ve seen The Makeover Guy’s popular videos, you know his studio is the place to go.

The big chop

It seems pretty obvious that Phoenix is going to end up with a major haircut. After all, why waste your time going to a makeover guru if you’re not going to let him go crazy with the scissors?

And that’s precisely what Hopkins does. Gone is the shoulder-length wavy hair of the “before” Pheoenix. But is he happy?

There’s a big smile on the teen’s face as he runs his hands through his glossy mane. He’s still got hair to die for!

It’s long on top and makes the perfect wave in front. The only problem is that it’s a little too neat for the teen.

We cringed a little when he messed with perfection, but it’s his hair, not ours after all! And the modelesque look just wasn’t entirely jibing with him.

After getting a tousel from Hopkins, things end up in largely the same place, just not so catalog-model-ready. And it still looks great!

Personal style is just that – personal – so Phoenix has to be able to pull off whatever hairstyle he walks out the door with. And we were really impressed with him for speaking up.

A good day

“I had fun today,” Phoenix says after getting a little ribbing from Hopkins.

He admits that he’s normally shy in front of people and we believe it since when he first walked in he seemed less outgoing. But after agreeing to trust his stylist and seeing the results of the makeover, he lives up to his name. Phoenix is reborn!

After one more tweak by Hopkins, the transformation is complete.

It’s a cute moment when the teen keeps messing with his hair only to have Hopkins walk by and “fix” it one more time.

Commenters were over the moon about Phoenix’s makeover.

“Omg that jawline! He’s stunning and what an adorable personality,” said one fan.

Of course, there were lots of comments about his Bart Simpson shirt, but frankly, we think it adds that perfect reminder that he’s still a “kid.”

And like most commenters, we wish we could see him waltz back into high school with his new look!
