Getting rid of Sun Spots and other imperfections.
Hello!  I need something to get rid of the sun spots on my face and other discoloration/redness/blotchiness.  I still have some pimples and blackheads on my face so I would like whatever I use to take care of all of it. I also have some acne scars.  I am 30 years old with fair skin.  What would you suggest I use?

foundation help- extremely pale skin
I've been wearing liquid foundation with (mostly) solid results for about a year now and my skin has suddenly decided to freak out. My makeup is usually gone inside of six hours, regardless of how well I've primed and set everything, what powder I'm using for touch-ups, etc.   I'm VERY fair and neutral-toned. Fair enough that I've considered buying a white foundation to mix with whatever powder I find. I've been using Kat Von D's light 42, but the powder seems to oxidize a bit and it turns very slightly orange, like most powder foundations do on me (or they turn pink or yellow). Does anyone else have this problem? What did you wind up using?   Also if anyone could throw a primer recommendation my way, that would be much appreciated. I'm combination and sensitive, so I'm afraid to use anything too intense because my dry areas get irritated really easily.

How Much Does Your Face Cost, Skincare Edition?
Last night I saw someone (gloss13?) ask on the Luxury Skincare thread,  would you pay $1k for a skincare product...  and through the conversation that ensued, a few people pointed out that their entire routines might add up to that amount.    So, it got me thinking... if I were to add up my entire daily skincare routine, where would I be at on that spectrum?  I have some guesses, but I have a feeling this will still be an eye opener for me (and probably for many others, too).  I'm only going to go by total product cost, not normalized for daily usage, because nobody's got time for that!   I'll write down everything I use in a day and edit my total in here.  Please feel free to come share your skincare snapshots with me

Tinted Moisturizer or Foundation
I tend not to wear too much foundation as I don't want cake skin as I found that happens when I wear too much product. I also focus on wearing more of just concealer due to the dark circles under my eyes and redness around the nose. I find that my face gets very dry especially around my nose and around my eyebrows. Should I then get a tinted moisturizer instead of a good foundation? Recommendations for any products would be fantastic! I have fair/light skin tone, pink undertones, some discolouration/redness. Thank you!!!

my foundation keeps separating on my face throughout the day!!
I start off my daily routine by priming my face with the pur correcting prep and perfect primer. Then I go in with my too faced born this way foundation and blend it out with a damp beauty blender. I conceal my under-eyes, chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose and center of forehead using my naked skin concelear. Lastly I set my face using the laura mercier translucent setting powder with a damp beauty blender. When I get home from school (8 hours) my foundation has separated and is patchy. I have combination skin also. Is it because I don't wash, mostiurize and exfoliate in the mornings? I'm good at washing my face at night, but not in the mornings. Is it because of that or is it my foundation or primer?  help please my foundation looks terrible!!

HEEEEEELLLLLP!
I have recently noticed I am getting fine lines under my eyes. I am only 30 but with 4 kids in my house I am surprised it did not start sooner. I have oily skin as a rule and I need a moisturizer that wont make me break out but will help slow this luggage down. ANY ADVICE IS HELPFUL! I also use the HD make up by sephora. It just seems to float off my skin on a pool of oil half way through the day.Any idea how to deal with this? THANKS in advance!

I am 50 years old and need some help with products. I use eye and face moisturizer daily, have combination skin - oily in the t zone, and
I am oily in the t zone and have tried foundation before but quit wearing it because it always felt too heavy and would wear off during the day.   I want some type of coverage that makes my face look smoother but helps with fine lines and wrinkles and isn't too heavy.   I've been reading about bb creams and tinted moisturizers and was wondering if that is the way to go.   There are so many products out there and i don't even know where to start. Basically i want some coverage, not too heavy that will stay on throughout the day.   Any advice?

I have dry patches under my eyes, the area just above my cheekbone, and every time I apply my foundation (Lancôme Rénergie Lift Makeup SPF 20), my foundation just sits on top of the dry patches and flakes off.

I've always worn liquid foundations and am thinking of trying out the barepro powder foundation.  I have a lot of redness and i'm thinking if I pair it with a green color corrector I should be good to go on those mornings i'm trying to get out of the house quickly.  I'm 128 in MUFE Foundation (stick and HD) and am trying to figure out what my color match would be for the barepro foundation.  Also, even though I have combo-oily skin, sometimes powder foundation looks cakey on me, i'm hoping with this one that won't be the case!   Thank for your help!

Favourite Youtubers
So as well as buying product I'm also obsessed with watching youtubers talk about them. My top 5 are:   - JenLuvsReviews : Her weekly round up 'What's Up in Makeup' news each Sunday is just amazing.   - EmilyNoel83 : such thorough reviews and so easy to watch.   - HotandFlashy : Again very thorough reviews, wear tests, knows such a lot about ingredients and is a more mature youtubers which I appreciate.   - TxMommyOfBoys : such a sweet lady, very passionate about makeup, reminds me of me lol    - MakeUpMLC : A more nature youtubers with great reviews across many brands, focuses on skincare which I appreciate.   Bonus : LivingByLynette and KikiInTheMiddle - feels like chatting with a friend.   my favourite video types are Empties, Favourites and Wear Tests.
