Will foundation primer interfere with the benefits of my foundation serum?
Hi beauties, I'm thinking of giving foundation primer a try. Currently I am using Perricone No Foundation Foundation Serum and I adore how it looks and feels - it just doesn't seem to stay on all day, thus bringing me to my two questions:  will a primer help the foundation stay on longer and will using a primer interfere with the anti aging and skin benefits of the foundation serum?     Oh and I was thinking of beginning my primer experience with Laura Mercier because I have a deluxe sample size. Thoughts?

Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?
I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous.    I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost).    Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick.    I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?

Make up forever shadows
Trying to decide on two shadows for a make up forever palatte. Like the look of the khaki matte as the dark shadow but can't decide on a paler base shadow to compliment it. Something peachy and not glittery would be ideal. Any suggestions?

Waterproofing your favorite mascara
Hi beauties, My favorite mascara has been Buxom's amplified Lash Mascara, and although it doesn't smear as much as other non-waterproof mascaras, toward the end of my work day around 3-4ish it starts to sting my eyes (not sure why) and I HAVE to take it off as soon as I am home because just touching it up doesn't help the stinging. Before this though, it is perfectly fine and doesn't bother my eyes at all. I am thinking it is because it isn't waterproof and maybe after a few hours it starts to maybe rub off specks in my eyes? I am really unsure. If any of you happen to know if it is due to something else and waterproofing it would not help at all-- please let me know !    I checked and there is not a current water proof version of this mascara. But if any of you happen to know a dupe version of this mascara that will be long-wearing that would be really helpful!! and lastly.... any tips on waterproofing this mascara if all else fails?!   I was thinking of using Make Up Forever Aqua Seal, but I wear contacts and have sensitive skin at times so I am unsure if this would be safe for me to use on my lashes?   Any tips would be sooo so so appreciated! Thanks loves! <3

Skincare Regimes! Let's talk about them!
Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using!   My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products.   Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine!   Morning:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate **  My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores **   Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm   Specific  Days   SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime!   I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks!   I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use!   I love Skincare! It's the best!   Michael, xo

I'm trying to figure out if a facial primer is a necessity anymore?
I currently use the Body Shop's Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream. It does a great job controlling my oil throughout the day and making my face nice and matte before I put on my foundation. A couple of times I decided to skip the primer and just applied my foundation after moisturizing. Honestly the only thing I noticed was that my nose got really oily but the rest of my face was perfectly fine. Do you think I can do without? Or should I just apply primer to my nose only? Not sure which direction I should go.

Hello! Recently, my foundation has not been looking its best. I have acne-prone, combination oily skin and I use the clinique acne solutions makeup with the hourglass mineral veil primer.

Need help finding a foundation shade and makeup brush
I have oily, acne prone skin that is super light. I have tried Bobbi Brown's foundation, Kat Von D, & Benefit foundations, all were in the lightest shade and still seemed too dark for my skin. I am looking for a full coverage, matte foundation that has enough shades that the lightest one would be able to work for a very fair person.  Does any one have any suggestions? Also what is a good foundation brush to use that packs a lot of coverage?

--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed.
