If i'm matched 1y06 what color should i buy in hourglass immaculate? It doesn't have an exact match and i don't want to buy the wrong one. i've tried "shell" before and it looked way too yellow. Should I use a primer with this one? Any recs? I have an extremely oily nose/chin but normal skin elsewhere.
I have the Know Gen Do Aqua foundation in 213 which has the perfect undertone for my olive skin, but it's still too light for my skin that has seen the sun. Does anyone have suggestions for how to darken it by just a shade? I tried mixing it with a sample of 143 but then it lost the olive undertone and looked too peachy. I was thinking about the Cover FX custom cover drops but I don't know if those would run pink on me. Almost everything does. Also, I live in the middle of nowhere so I can't drop by a Sephora or department store...or CVS...or Target...#middle #of #nowhere
Hi there. I am a MAC NC45 when using the Studio Tech Foundation and a Medium Deep with their Loose Powder. Any idea what this would translate to in Cover FX shades? I really like that Cover FX is cruelty free and vegan and am looking to move over. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Pantone's color of the year for 2017 was announced today! It is Greenery! I think this is a lovely color but now sure how it will translate to all types of makeup (aside from eye makeup). Just wondering if you all already have anything in your stash that you think is in the Greenery family?
Hi, i'm trying to order urban decay 24/7 glide on lip liner in deep and its says its not available. Is there another similar color in that line that i could wear and a matching lipstick in a light brown tone?
Before you start a course of chemotherapy your doctor explains all the common side effects to you, there are the standard ones we've all heard of before including hair loss, nausea and increased risk of infection and then there are the less known ones such as sore nails and taste changes. But changes to skin are not really talked about in much detail. I was warned that my skin would be more sensitive to sunlight and could become dry but I was so preoccupied by my impending baldness that at first I didn't really think about my skin - that soon changed. So how did chemotherapy affect my skin? I found that it made it very sensitive and dry, but a plus point was that I never really got blemishes which was a welcome change for me. The steroids I took turned my face a lovely shade of puce for a few days too (I used make up to help with this and will reveal more in a later post). I quickly found that I had to adapt my skincare routine to suit my now very different skin type. At first I did a lot of Googling, blog reading and general online browsing, then when I had the energy I went to department stores and asked for samples to try. I highly recommend this. It is important you try a product before you buy it and do a patch test because skin reactions can be common during chemotherapy and the last thing you want is an even redder face.

I need help picking a foundation color. I got matched with Remarcable by Marc Jacobs in both shade 10 and 12, which are described as very fair with pink undertones and very fair with yellow undertones respectively. After wearing both coloring on alternating days for a week, I think I'm in between undertones ie neutral. I didn't realize until I went to check online that their is a third color that comes right after 12 described as very fair with peach undertones. Is peach similar to neutral? Should I go back to be color matched again?
I started a new skincare regime and had a terrible reaction all over my my cheeks and forehead because I didn't ease into it like I should have - skin is red, itchy, and feels inflamed. I have a few questions if anyone can help. 1. In the future I want to patch test everything I use beforehand, but I'm not sure what area to patch test on? I saw online you should test for irritants in the area most susceptible, but I don't want to patch test on my face! My nose and the side of my face is fine and did not react (even though they were exposed to the same products) - so I am worried that if I test behind my ear/inside my elbow I would still react on my face. 2. What I did that night was - Ole Henriksen on the go cleanser (used a lot a few years ago, had no reaction). Then I followed with PTR Cucumber Mask (only new product that night). Followed by Ole's Vitamin C serum + oil (had used for a week with no reactions). I think the redness started after I applied the serum/oil parts. What product could have caused the reaction? The cucumber mask is supposed to be really gentle and I have used his Pumpkin Enzyme Mask with no adverse effects before. Could it have been me combining products rather than a single product that caused it?
I like the Kat Von D tattoo foundation, but its a little too heavy for me. Right now, I'm using the Makeup Forever HD foundation, but I want to try something new. I like the HD foundation and the finish, but I want something with a little more coverage. Any recommendations?

I have very oily skin, and I can never find a foundation for it. I have spent so much money on foundation. I always wash my face before applying anything. I use primers, setting sprays and nothing works. My face will get oily in a matter of minutes/ an hour. I What kind of foundation would you recommend me?
Hi, I am going on vacation with my boyfriend at the end of the month, I am desperately trying to find a product that helps to combat back-thigh cellulite. Does anyone know of a product that would help with this? Thanks!
Hi there, Does anyone know of a drugstore red/auburn hair color that actually looks red indoors? Any dye I have tried looks black indoors, but a lovely red in sunlight. I am hoping to find a semi-permanent dye at the drugstore that looks red all the time, indoors too. I have tried the Loreal Casting Crème Gloss, but I have the same problem. Dark brown/black indoors; lovely auburn shade outside. I could probably find what I am looking for in permanent dyes, but I only want semi-permanent. Also, I am not looking for a bright red (like Ariel), but a natural medium/dark auburn shade. Thank you for reading this.
