I'm looking for something to add to my makeup to help illuminate my skin. My skin tone is fair/medium and I have a lot of freckles on my cheeks, so I have to be careful what I put on or else my makeup will look too 'caked on' or 'powdery'. I just want something lightweight that will add a natural glow/brightening effect to my look.
I want to purchase the Kat Von D shade and light eye shadow palette, Too Faced bon bon palette, and the Tarte tartelette in bloom palette. I want to buy one right now but I don't know which one to get first! I don't wear much eye shadow, but I sometimes will wear warm matte eye shadow which already own some. I am looking for a good palette that I can use for special occasions, such as homecoming, and on an everyday basis too.
I am in need of a new routine for my naturally curly hair. I am using DevaCurl but my hair is fine, flat, limp and oily. I am looking for increased volume and hold without being left grimy or sticky. I have been looking at the new IGK products but am not sure what would work. Thanks in advance!
I have extremely oily skin and I'm trying to find a foundation that will keep me matte without looking caky and heavy on my face. The Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free foundation, BECCA Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation, Tarte Double Duty Beauty Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation,Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation, TESTS LAUDER Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup, and Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup sound like they could be good options but I was hoping to get an idea of which is closer to what I'm looking for.
Hi! I recently got engaged and I'm taking engagement photos with my fiancé in October. I really need to find a foundation that will look good in our pictures. I'm of medium/dark complexion. I have dry sensitive skin. I don't want anything that will look or feel heavy on my skin. I have a few dark spots and hyper pigmentation around my chin. I really just want to even out my skin tone. Any Suggestion?
While watching the the Olympics last week, I fell in love with this Italian gymnast's lip color. I'm not very makeup savvy, so I need help finding lipsticks that are that color or similar (along with it being matte like hers). Any help is appreciated, because I need to get my hands on this.
Hey! I have dry/combination textured skin, especially in the triangle area between my nose bridge and under my eyes/ on top of my cheeks. I've been told they're closed comedones. It's been really difficult finding a foundation that didn't cling onto dry patches (that don't appear UNTIL I put on foundation or concealer) and end up making my skin look scaley and unflattering. I need to find a concealer and primer to pair it with the tinted moisturizer that won't accentuate the textured skin I have and one that hydrates and blends easily. Products I've tried : Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Foundation Too Faced Hangover Primer Smashbox Hydrating Primer MUFE Hydrating Primer So far only the Bareminerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel is working in terms of not showing dry patches and flakes. The only major problem I have with it is that the finish looks oily around my T-zone but nothing a little Laura Mercier translucent powder can't fix.
Hi guys! I got Color IQ matched to Y101 a few months ago and I picked out MUFE HD Foundation in shade Y205 (Alabaster). It's a perfect match! I am looking to try some new foundations. I already own KVD in the wrong shade and I like the full coverage, so I want to try it in a shade that works for me. I also want to try the Urban Decay Naked Foundation. What colors would you suggest in those foundations that are a Color IQ match for Y101? Thanks!
I am looking for the best Dipbrow shade from Anastasia I do have dirty blonde hair and, black eyebrows! I was wondering what shade I should get (I was thinking of Medium Brown) I do like to go a shade or 2 darker with my eyebrows!!! Thank you so much!

What's a good foundation/bb cream/tinted moisturizer and concealer that won't look flakey on my cheeks and on my nose, and it looks cakey around my cheeks. I do moisturize every night and in the morning, yet my skin gets super dry whenever I put anything besides skincare products on. Should I use a primer? Or should I just try different products?
Aloha! I'm looking for a tinted moisturizer WITHOUT a sunscreen in it. Any and all physical and mineral sunscreens seem to break me out in awful, painful cystic acne. Chemical sunscreen, on the other hand, plays well with my skin. I have my own SPF50 sunscreen that I use for sun protection. Any reccs? I'm about an NC 20ish, golden undertones, light skin. Thanks in advance!
I prefer the BRUSH tips and not the FELT tips. I would love some suggestions. I use to use wet and wild liquid eyeliner but they recently changed their brush tip to a felt tip and I'm heartbroken! Please give me suggestions.
I'm 21 and have suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. I've been to the dermatologist and have been perscribed multiple things that have done absolutely nothing. I've tried just about everything so I need some help. I have oily skin and I need products that help with acne or will not cause me to breakout , yet usually when I use products for acne prone skin they leave my skin with dry patches and super sensitive. Is there any products out there that will help with acne but not dry me out??
Hi! I have a very sensitive skin and lately I am having quite a hard time with it. I am 40 (already!) and still have acne (little, very deep under the skin type of pimples, not exactly what you see on those acne treatment informercials). It will breakout for several reasons (hormone, heat, stress...) I followed different treatment for that (even with a dermatologist) and I found out that, because my skin is very sensitive, using acne treatment actually make it worst somehow...my combination skin is often mistaken for a very oily one because as soon as I use something too strong my skin get's oily to cope with the harsh ingredients. So, I am looking for new products for my skin because what I am using right now cause my skin to breakout a lot and my skin is itchy. I am using clinique products (the more gentle soap, the no.2 clarifying lotion, the turnaround revitalizing serum and the moisturizing gel). I am using the Neutrogena CC cream instead of a fondation. Usually when I combine a very gentle soap with very light moisturizing I am doing fine. I would like to know the products that may be better for me (from soap to moisturizer), which BB or CC cream to use, well, which skin care would make my skin better. I know my skin is not typical but maybe that might help other women that also have a very difficult skin. It's hard to find a product that will soothe and prevent acne, help with those first wrinkles as well as be gentle on a skin that won't put up with ingredients that are too strong. Thank you so much for your help! Ps. I hope the writing is not too bad, english is my second langage
Not sure if I'm the only person with this issue. I Absolutely love my Marc Jacobs brush collection. I am looking to purchase "The Blush" Brush by MJ (the head of the brush itself has all black bristles, where as most if not all other MJ brushes sold at Sephora have the white tips). The first time I saw this brush was one MJ instagram or something and since I had never seen it before figured Sephora just didn't carry. However a couple months ago I saw it advertised in a store (like a brush in display that you could touch and test) with a section for the product boxes that just seemed to be sold out, so I came home and checked online..nothing. Then just this weekend I was at Sephora Sq 1 and yet again saw it advertised... with one brush left in the spot where the boxes for sale would be. But the brush didn't have a box, it was only in the cheap plastic wrapping. Now I really really want this brush, but I'm not spending all that money without getting it brand new in the box! Does anyone know if Sephora actually even carries this brush and a location where I could get it or if it will ever be available online? Thank you in advanced for any suggestions!!
I swatched both of these at Sephora and fell in love with these! They're so pretty, but pricey for me at the moment especially since I already have many liquid lipsticks... I just can't justify spending that much on one liquid lipstick. Literally anything cheaper is fine online and in stores.
I am looking for a drugstore leave-in conditioner/hair mask to use once a week for long, thick hair. Because my hair is not particularly dry or damaged, I thought the average leave-in treatment would be fine, but I tried a sample of Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask and it had no effect. I haven't been able to find any recommendations online for products for my hair type, and I'd hate to buy something that I won't use. I just want my hair to be soft and shiny!
Does anyone know of any skincare-only subscription boxes? I just cancelled my Birchbox subscription, since the points system was really the only reason I was sticking around, so I'm looking for a replacement. I'm pretty picky with makeup, but still new to the world of skincare, so it'd be nice to find a subscription box with only skincare items (not mask-only boxes, though). I have looked into some of the Korean skincare boxes, Miss Tutii and MishiBox in particular, but I'm a little wary of the quality of some of the cheaper Korean brands that are often in those boxes and I am very uncomfortable at the prospect of getting skin-whitening products. I also have gotten the impression that a lot of Korean skincare products are for oily skin, and since I have very dry skin, I would have to have a box that is customized for dry skin. I would love to hear from subscribers about their experiences with different boxes!
I have very sensitive skin that's often prone to redness and acne. However, I just started trying out makeup and I want to figure out what's best for my skin while being able to experiment with different styles and colors. However, I don't like products/brands that contain harsh chemicals (i.e. parabens or phthalates) or test on animals. With that in mind, do any of you have recommendations for these items: Makeup Remover Wipes/Brush Cleaners Eyeshadow/Face Palettes (in neutral, soft, vivid/bold colors and/or a combo of any of these) Single Eyeshadows/Blushes/Highlighters/Bronzers Colorless Lip Balm Mascara Eyeliner Lipstick/Gloss/Stain/Colored Lip Balm Thank you!
