Beauty Basics - What would you consider must have for skincare and makeup
I had a friend ask me what I would consider basics for beauty and skincare as she is just starting out in the beauty world and is looking to get a regimen going. However being the beauty junkie that I am I am trying to narrow down a list for her. So what would you consider Cosmetic and Skincare basics?

On the hunt for a new serum...what should I try next?!
A little bit about my skin: I am 24 and have combination/dry skin   I am currently using Philosophy Time in a Bottle as my serum and am really liking it, however I am running out of it and looking to switch it up for a bit. I just don't want my skin to get too used to Time in a Bottle since I am still young and will probably really "need" it in the future lol.   I do want a serum with anti-aging benefits and hydration is always a plus.   Thanks for taking the time to read this! Looking forward to reading all the suggestions

Mia Clarisonic? I need some opinions on what you think!
Hi everyone!   Okay so I recently visited my Sephora store, and I asked about a Acne cleanser or spot treatment. And the lady who attended to me gave me a sample of Peter Thomas Roth sulfur masque. Then she asked if I ever used a Clarisonic. I never did, or even thought about getting one. She went on to talk about how she highly recommends it to everyone, and it made me think I should invest in one! I do have acne prone skin..mostly hormonal breakouts. She said it would really help get my skin clean and free of any dirt/makeup laying on my skin after cleansing/exfoliating.  i know you need to replace the brush after so long too.  I am on the outs on getting one, I just need some input on what you guys think?? Do you think its a good investment?

help! Severe Hyper pigmentation Problem!
Hello there! So my aunt, who's probably in her 40's, has some pretty severe hyper pigmentation on her neck! She's constantly embarrassed about it and she has tried many products. Unfortunately I can't list any of them since I don't know and has even gone to a dermatologist... and that has failed. From what I know she has used only lotions and gels. I am hoping for some of you beauty lovers to have an idea or a cure or even know someone who has been able to overcome it and recommend what they used. She's pretty desperate at the moment on trying to get rid of it.   to have an idea on what her hyper pigmentation looks like I will link some photos below (not her but what it sort of looks like). Just try to imagine this all on the front of a neck... There isn't anything graphic just a picture of a neck and cheek if you were wondering!   https://escholarship.org/uc/item/4580r7rs/1b.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3BbOj5vt2zA/TkEF2sDjL9I/ AAAAAAAAAE0/rNQg5-PR4yQ/s1600/acanthosis-nigricans ...   Please help!

Turning powder foundation into liquid
Can you mix powder foundations like, MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Golden Medium (from BAREMINERALS), with water to make it a liquid foundation? It may be best to just buy liquid foundation but it does not sit well on my face! So I was just wondering if it were possible to turn the matte powder into a liquid, with water, and apply it with a brush? Thanks!

I need a foundation based on my concealer
Guys, my current foundation shades just aren't doing it for me, but my concealer is a great match. So I am looking for a foundation that is closer to my concealer shade. I am using MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #6 Ivory.   I am open to any brand, any coverage, and finish. I just need that right color. So please feel free to suggest any foundation that is a match to my concealer.   Thanks guys!

Makeup Classes?
I didn't start wearing makeup until I was in my 30's.  The learning curve has been steep and there are still things I struggle with learning.   How do I find makeup classes in my area?  I don't want to go to a makeup counter, I want a true sit down and learn class.   Everyone and their mama is a MUA these days how do I go about finding a TRUE MUA and taking a class?   I really want to learn how do a winged liner (hooded eyes), apply eyelashes, contouring, highlighting and different shadow techniques.   Can you all help me?  I'm in the northeast close to DC/DelMarVa/Philly areas.   TIA   NAA

Vibrant Violet/Purple Lippies!
So, I really want to try a really vibrant violet lip color. I looked in past threads to get ideas but the last post was about a year ago and, let's be real, a whole lot of new makeup products come out in a year. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions! I am not looking for anything dark or vampy. I am contemplating Too Faced Violet Melted Lipstick. If anyone has any other ideas I would really appreciate it!

Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation color match help
Hi, everyone I could really use some color match help. I'm currently living in Japan, so I can't really go into a Sephora myself and get color matched, however I can order from Sephora online and they'll ship to me here. Anyway, I would love to order the Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation. I have been using Mac Studio Fix in the color NC20 for years. I'd like to try this new foundation but am not really quite sure, which color. Is there anyone out there, who might be able to know which color would best suit me? Thanks, sincerely.

Tarte 12-Hour Foundation makes me look shimmery....
Please help! So, I have the tarte 12 hour foundation in medium tan and I am in love with it. I used to hate it because I bought the duel ended foundation brush (flat top and pointed) to apply it and it looked streaky.. but I now use the real techniques pointed foundation brush and I like how it looks like now. HOWEVER, everytime I wear this foundation I can see the bits of glitter or shimmer on my face. I tried blending it away and its still there...And its really noticeable when I'm in the sun! It's really embarrassing and my sister asked me why I wore glitter on my face.    I want to know if any of you have had this problem or had and know how to sort of deal with it. I really love the coverage, consistency, and the overall look of it and want to use it up!    I'm not sure if its the brush I'm using or whatever.. I do use a primer and I put a powder or it (either my benefit or rimmel stay matte or BM mineral veil) and it still looks shimmery.

Feedback pop-up on Sephora - here's my reply.
So I was surfing BT a little and I get a pop-up (at least I think it was a pop-up, maybe i accidentally clicked the button at the bottom lol) that says "Favourite thing about Sephora.com? What new feature should we add?"   Here is my response.   "Sephora treats their Canadian customers horribly. I understand that we have to pay taxes and now duties (geez thanks) - and that's fine. BUT, our minimum $ amount for free shipping is $75! Whilst our American counterparts' minimum is only $50. Also the markup on the products is ridiculous! I know that there is an exchange rate but I also know that it is NOT THAT MUCH! (and all the prices vary in markup, hence how i know that it's mainly markup and not just the exchange rate). Not to mention things like the fragrance sets. We don't get the voucher for the free purfume of our choice, but Americans do?! How the heck is that fair?!?! Basically, treat us Canadians better - or we'll just spend our money elsewhere, and Sephora - you will be become our last resort."
