What facts would you show some one that didn’t believe in climate change, that a war isnt happening in Ukraine, that Trump is a hero and that the world is flat?

Those beliefs are fairly specific, so you have a pretty hardcore conspiracy theorist on hand. It’s very hard to argue about the truthfullenss of conspiracy theories as it’s by definition impossible to disprove them completely, so I wouldn’t be bothered enough to speak to such a person really.

What do I avoid in makeup if i have uneven eye( mild ptosis) , cuz i realized when i put concealer on my eyes my friends will tell me i look tired or my eyes is sleepy

Personally, I would get a consultation from a makeup artist or two. This service is free at makeup counters since they want you to buy products, if they work for you. Everyone‘s face is different and you have endless options with makeup, some of which will work for you and some of which won‘t.
