Dry
Over the last two days my upper lip and the area above it has been dry, flaky/peeling and red. Could it be a chemical reaction from some product? I don't believe I tried anything new on my lips that I had not tried before. When I touch that area it feels a little rough to the touch. It did burn a little when I was using facewash to wash the area and when I put cream on it like Belief's Aqua Bomb. I am kind of smearing the area with Bite agave lip balm but it just feels so weird and rough-ish.
Eyes
As I I've gotten older (34), I've noticed my eyes look more and more sunken in. Any concealer held with any darkness but eyes still have that under eye hollowness. Any beauty secrets or product suggestions??   * I use great eye moisturizers and stay hydrated*

I'd like a recommendation for a foundation. I have combination dry skin, and my dry patches seem to show with heavier foundations like Urban Decay All Nighter. I also have a mild case of acne, and would like a medium-to-full coverage, and preferably one that won't make my acne much worse. I go to school, so would prefer a long-wearing one that won't move when used with primer and setting spray. I'd also prefer one with a more natural finish. As much as I like matte makeup, I think most will settle into the dry patches in my face. The foundations I have tried have been Urban Decay All Nighter, Urban Decay Naked, and Fit Me in Matte.I found that all of these, with Naked being the least severe and All Nighter the most, seem to emphasize my dry patches, and I find the All Nighter, as pretty and full-coverage as it looks when it's first put on, seems to bunch in places like my nose by the end of the day. Thank you for helping me!

I need recommendations for a primer that is hydrating, oil-free and not only works with keeping the makeup on but makes my skin look healthy without makeup.

I am NC30-35 and have medium olive skin with peach undertones. These are my shades in other foundations. I recently bought Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Sand, but I feel like it's too dark on me.  Could you recommend a different shade?   Also, what would you recommend in the new Tarte Clay Stick Foundation ? I currently use the Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation and am the color Light Beige.

Hello All, I am looking for a under eye brightner that looks natural, stays on all day, and is noticeable and gives effect. I have an oily skin type so I need something that won't slip and slide. Thank you!!!

What did you get? I'm trying to decide what I should get with it... Debating between these items... what do ya'll think? I already have soooo many things that there isn't much left on my wishlist.

This is my typical night time routine:   OLEHENRIKSEN the clean truth foaming cleanser OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation gel OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation creme   Stupid question: Can I use my AMOREPACIFIC treatment toner after the cleanser but before the gel?   And also, once or twice a week I would do this for night time:   OLEHENRIKSEN the clean truth foaming cleanser Exfoliator Mask OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation gel OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation creme   Just want to make sure the mask is incorporated in the right place.

I would love to have the option of getting samples of perfumes I am interested in thru sephora.com. Many of the perfumes I would like to sniff are not sold in my local stores and are not the typical rewards or weekly special offerings. I wish that for any perfume available on sephora.com - you could get a sample ..... even for a sample price or point purchase. I do like that some lines have discovery sets, but that is often way too much for me to see if I like or don't like a perfume (which is often "don't"). I am unwilling to spend $100+ on perfume if I can't smell it first, and I am not one to buy and return willy-nilly as that just seems irresponsible. Would love if you would consider adding this service for customers!

I currently wear the shade natural beige in the Too Faced Born this Way. I've been itching to try the Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation but I'm not sure which shade would best match me.

Has anyone else noticed that the Anastasia Beverly Hills eye shadow singles keep appearing in the sales section without actually being on sale? I've seen it happen 4 or 5 times. What's up with that?

I am currently using Urban decay weightless ultra foundation 3.5.....it matches great but would love to try the new Stellar foundation. Has anyone else with these tones switch and if so, what match shade 😀😀😀

So I absolutely love the Cover FX foundation, I personally use the natural finish foundation in N10. It matches me so well, looks so natural and beautiful, but it's really getting on my nerves. Every time I wear it I can't seem to properly powder, seal or do anything to keep it from transferring like crazy. I've tried a few different powders, several techniques, but nothing seems to work for me. The only one I haven't tried at the moment is the Cover FX powder, but mostly because I've had others on hand already and didn't want to spend more money on new powder when I had several.   I really don't want to switch foundations since I love this one so much, but I'm truly at a loss after speaking to so many people and seeing no results. PS, I have tried powdering the foundation with the mineral foundation, and it didn't work for me at all. I've also tried makeup forever and cinema secrets.

Eyes
Hey guys, so i am having trouble finding the name of the brand that makes eye shadow that i was trying to buy like two years ago and maybe someone can help me. Here is what I remember: 1. They were not an American brand, maybe Swiss or German? 2. They had palates and individual shadows but they were RECTANGULAR in shape, and according to peoples reviews you get a lot of grams. 3. They were not cheap, I think they wanted like 5 dollars per shadow so a palate would have been around 60/70 dollars plush shipping from Europe.  4. They used to be popular on YouTube before: color pop and coaster sense and morphe, and they had a unique name I think starting with a V or a Z (not Viseart)   Anyone know?

Hello there!  went in for some suggestions for my wedding day and the makeup artist suggested Buxom Ruby temptress for me. I love it and was looking for a lip liner that someone might suggest to use with this.  I also noticed I tend to wear out the lipstick quickly and have to reapply. Are they any other long lasting wear solutions that would be similar in color to the ruby temptress? Thank you.

Dry
Any other product recs for my dry, flaky skin? I have a skin condition and some psoriasis-like patches/texture on my cheeks, however generally my skin isn't sensitive and I can keep this at bay with a good AHA.   AM: -Cleanser (PC Skin Recovery) -Toner (Fresh Rose Deep Hydration or PC Skin Recovery or P50 - any suggestions for AM?) -Vitamin C? (Drunk Elephant C-Firma) -AHA? Do I use any in the AM? In conjunction with C-Firma? I have PC 8% AHA gel, 10% AHA liquid and Sunday Riley Good Genes. I d o need to use AHAs daily to prevent dead skin buildup, but not sure if I should use 2x/day - my skin isn't sensitive. -Also - May Coop Raw Sauce - AM or PM? -Drunk Elephant B-Hydra under moisturizer? -Moisturizer with SPF - any recs? Is it ok to skip this if I have SPF in my foundation and set with Coola setting spray with SPF? PM: -Cleanser (PC Skin Recovery for now - any other suggestions for dry flaky skin? I was going to try YTTP's Kale/Spinach etc cleanser however there is a retinol derivative in it and I'm pregnant - can't use) -Toner (Fresh Rose Deep Hydration or PC Skin Recovery OR P50 - any suggestions for PM?) -AHA next? PC 8% AHA gel, 10% AHA liquid and Sunday Riley Good Genes - OR Drunk Elephant Babyfacial mask for exfoliation instead? When to add in May Coop Raw Sauce? DE B-Hydra? Ceramidin Liquid?  PC 10% Niacinamide Booster? Drunk Elephant Babyfacial mask? Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist?   I also have Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid & Cream, a few choices for moisturizers: Belif Moisturizing Bomb, Drunk Elephant Lala Retro, FAB Ultra Repair, etc. - anything along these lines I should/could try? Though these all seem to be working great (FAB Ultra Repair isn't QUITE moisturizing enough though)... Oils: Sunday Riley Flora, Sunday Riley Juno, Fresh Seaberry - I rotate these. Was using Caudalie c15 Polyphenol Overnight Detox but had to return as it's not pregnancy safe. Also was using Sunday Riley Luna - also had to return due to pregnancy. I realize there are a lot of products that can substitute for one another but I like to have a few to choose from

Hi there,   I'm getting married in October and I really want to wear a classic red lip that I won't have to reapply every 10 minutes. I have cool undertones and am very pale and I've tried some red lipsticks that say they are cool undertones and they still just don't seem right. Even the Sephora Liquid Lipstick in their Always Red doesn't seem to be the one for me and it's supposed to be Universal. I want one that makes my teeth look whiter.   Any suggestions?

This might be a pretty dumb question but here I go! So I have been recently revamping my makeup routine. I am a teacher and need something that I can apply quickly while still having good coverage throughout the day. A ton of glam vloggers use a pressed powder (with color) after applying foundation and a translucent loose power after blending concealer. Are both of these powders necessary or could I just stick with one? Currently using the Laura Mercier translucent powder and don't know if I need to add another. Thanks! Also, is highlighter a must for a basic everyday look?

Hi friends! I'm really struggling to find a match to my shade in the Tarte Shape Tape online, and need help! My perfect foundation shade is the MUFE Ultra HD in Y225 (117 in the old formula), and was wondering if anyone had any advice. I'm not looking for a super highlighted look, and was hoping to find a shade similar to my skin tone for days when I'm not wearing any other makeup.
