How do you all blend your foundation into your lighter neck? Mine is MAC Pro Longwear in NW 20 and it's hard to cover the neck with because of its longwear consistency. I tried the shade lighter and looked like a ghost. But I don't love the foundation line- so 8th grade! I have a bronzer I brush onto my neck, but isn't pigmented enough to do the trick. What are your tricks, HG bronzers, etc for this prob?
I have fairly oily skin, I don't have much acne, my skin is fairly clear I just get a very oily face and find my face looking greasy after the day is over. I use the Urban Decay Naked Skinliquid foundation and find it very poor for my skin type. What would you recommend for my skin type?
I'm looking for a finishing spray or a facial mist/toner that I can also use after makeup application. I already have the skindinavia setting spray, but I don't use that everyday because of the alcohol content, so basically I just want something to make my makeup appear less powdery/more blended on days when I choose not to use a setting spray. There seem to be so many options that I'm not sure what to try. I have combination to dry skin. I am also very sensitive to fragrance. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
I have oily skin ( shiny forehead, nose and chin pores everywhere my face and blackheads on my nose. I use cetaphil to cleanse my face everyday. However, what are some good brands that last long for the following items ? BB cream in light beigh with spf (oil free) matte face powder (oil free) concealer:stick or liquid (oil free) to cover dark circles / bags under eyes Brow pencil lip gloss tinted lip balms eye liner Primer to cover up pores will eye shadow be good on me ? if so which one? If not then it's fine. I am Asian with monolids. I do not want false eye lashes. what will I need in my make up bag on the go?
Currently I wash my face AM and PM. I use eye cream and day cream w/spf & night cream. I also use my clarisonic every other day. I feel like im missing something because my face looks so blah. Anything else that is a must to include in my daily facial regimen?

Hello my Fellow Lipstick Addicts, I am on a never ending quest for the most Holy of Holys - the Precious of any Purse - THE REAL LONG LASTING LIPSTICK (or Stain). So many claim to be long lasting but we know they are filled with lies. Piles of lip stains, balms, sticks, and pencils go unwanted after they have failed the Last test yet their makers continue to mislead us in a belief that their product will last long! For shame I say - for shame!!!! If YOU hold the Precious please share its gift with one such as I for I fear I have gone without for far too long. Please aid me in my quest and if you do hold the secret of the Precious than you shakllk be rewarded! (ok you will get a Thank You post but that is like a reward) -Lipsticky in Colorado
I was at Sephora yesterday and asked an SA if she’d heard when the Hourglass Holiday Ultimate Ambient Lighting Palette would be released. Unsurprisingly, she didn’t know a release month. She did inform me that Hourglass has mini pans in the works – like what the flagship store has to create your own palette. She didn’t know if it would be limited to the ambient lighting powders or if you could mix and match powder, blush, and bronzer. Has anyone else heard about this?
There are a lot of music festivals and things coming up where I will be outside a lot and I need a good foundation that won't melt off my face. I was recommended this in the matte liquid form when I went in to get matched for a new foundation. i have yet to try this where im outsidemost of the day so would this be a good foundation that will last all day and wont melt off my face? I also use a lotion with spf, veil mineral primer and urban decay all nighter setting spray.
Hey ladies - looking for some feedback. I am in Canada and pre-ordered these brushes, mine are set for the August 30 delivery. I'm considering cancelling the order though now that I've had some time to think about it. The one and only reason (but a compelling one lol) that I want these is because of the gorgeous handles. I have tons of quality brushes from Wayne Goss and the Chikuhodo GSN series, plus MAC and Sephora + Hakuhudo. As a matter of fact, I never once considered these to be brushes I would use, just keep as a collection item. From the reviews I've read the quality isn't as good as the GSN series or the Goss brushes. Also, and this is a big factor - I'm in Canada. With the horrid exchange rate now the total of these brushes came to almost $300!! I'm starting to think there are many other things I could buy - and actually USE for $300. Any thoughts? For my American friends that have these, if you had to pay $300 for them, would you still think they were worth it? Esp. if you already have tons of better quality brushes? Thanks!!
So my friends birthday is coming and and she asked for and I quote: "Any mascara that will make my **bleep** eyelashes POP!" So i was wondering what would be better..a great mascara or a tube of eyelash enhancers? What brands are the best for big lashes? Im more of a lipstick/eyeliner gal so I need some expertise!
I got this email yesterday and I wanted to check and make sure it is authentic, because I don't want to risk a scam and getting my account hacked. It sounds like an exciting opportunity, but before I proceed, I wanted to check with the Sephora experts.
Hi! I usually wear the Becca Ultimate foundation Crème in color Nude, I wanted to try the Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink...just because the Sephora I am going to today does not carry Becca, which color would be a good match? Or what would be another great full coverage foundation? Thanks!
Can someone please tell me if Bite Beauty Barberry from the Frozen Berries Collection will be Back in stock online? I am currently on Vacation and today is my last day in a city with a Sephora so I need to know if I should just go pick it up in store before I go home.
I purchased the NARS under eye concealer because of all of the rave reviews and I am extremely disappointed! It creases horribly and has a very dry texture and not very good coverage. I guess I will stick with the Laura Mercier secret concealer until I can find a product with a creamy texture and more coverage. Any suggestions??
For as long as I can remember I have always applied my skincare routine with my fingers. Last night I was I was rearranging some things on my vanity and realized I have 2 beautblenders Im currently using to blend my foundation plus I have 4 more brand new ones and 4 Sephora sponges. I was thinking of other ways to use them so I am turning to my lovely BT'ers who always have awesome ideas. I used a Sephora one last night to aaply serum, moisturizer, eye cream and oil. I liked that I was patting it on rather then rubbing it in which typically happens when I use my fingers. My only concern is does the sponge absorb too much product and less goes on the face? I would hate to waste expensive skin care to a sponge. Can't wait to hear any other ideas you have and your take on using it with your skin care routine!
I am considering shelling out the dough for this foundation. I tried it in the store and got a nice color match and the light coverage I was looking for. However, I would love to hear what anyone has to say about it - pro or con - because as we all know, foundation is tricky and I would be very reluctant to use, then return, something so expensive.
i currently have brown hair with balayage highlights and use the Medium Brown Anastasia Brow Wiz for my ashy brown hair. However, tomorrow i am dying my hair to a warm reddish brown color. I am wondering if you girls think I should change up my brow routine and start using the Auburn brow wiz in conjunction with my medium brown color? I'm nit picky about brows totally not matching hair color, and am just wanting additional opinions. The color is by no means fiery red!
