Q. I have monolids, what are some good eyeshadow looks without creating a fake crease?
I really want to get into working with eyeshadows, but I have monolids and can't find that many tutorials and tips. I really like colours and would love to incorporate colours into everyday looks. I was wondering what are some suggestions for applying colourful eyeshadow to monolids without creating a fake crease?

Q. Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia
For as long as I can remember, I've had these tiny bumps that gather around the inner corner of my eye and along my dark circles. I really, really hate them! They kind of look like chicken skin, but they don't really feel bumpy or anything. I've seen pictures of milia, and that is definitely not what I have. These little bumps don't ever go away and they never move. Some people say that they've started to notice this chicken skin under their eyes as they aged, but I'm a Sophomore and I've had this problem my whole life! I've done a little research, and so far all of the fixes have been really complicated and confusing. Please give me a solution! I like to take good care of my skin, but I'd much rather just buy a lotion or something than see a dermatologist. Thanks for all your help!

Q. Huge pores from glasses
Hey guys, which products should I try next for pore minimizing? I'm looking more for masks/treatments than face wash. I'm a 21 year old college student and I wear glasses 24/7. I have combination skin but my pores in my t-zone and cheeks are huge from my glasses. I've tried pore strips, GlamGlow SuperMud, Salicylic Acid wipes, Kate Somerville products, etc. yet all they do is dry out my skin, nothing has noticeably reduced my pores. My skin is very fair and sensitive, can you recommend some products? Thanks so much! Edit:  I use Philosophy Purity face wash morning and night, and Origins Original Skin Serum at least twice a day, or more if my skin is dry. Also use Kate Somerville Gentle ExfoliKate once a week to smooth out my skin.

Q. Painful pimple on lips, how do you deal with that?
Ok, so there's acne treatment and various things to treat pimple on the face. If it's drying or harsh, no big deal. But I've got a tiny red bump on the lip that hurts every time I touch it and it's a problem when I eat. Moreover, I JUST manage to recover my lips from it's previous dry/itchy/flaky condition, so.......   Have you ever gotten pimples on your lips? how do you deal with that?   Thanks.

Q. Nars Sheer Glow with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer?
I know that the Nars Sheer Glow is technically water based, but being as the second ingredient is a silicone I'm wondering if I'd be able to avoid having my makeup  pill/bead/generally apply weirdly  with the Hourglass primer despite the fact that it's mineral/silicone based. Has anyone tried this combo before? I'm also looking into the Smashbox Photo Finish Light primer but I'm very scared about switching up so much of my base makeup with my skin's pretty unrelenting sensitivity (other than being sensitive my skin is combo-oily but I'm not afraid of needing to blot or powder). Thanks!

Q. Foundation Help
Hello All,   I'm having trouble with my foundation lately. I've been using the Tarte Amazonian clay foundation and I've noticed my skin has become very dry. To the point were my whole face was flaky. It could be the weather that's doing it to my skin. But I was wondering if anyone had other suggestions for foundation. I'm having dry skin issues but I also get extremely oily throughout the day to the point where my makeup will slide off. Before anyone asks I do use primers and setting sprays nothing works to fight to oil.  Thank you all in advance

Q. BABYLISSPRO Nano Titanium Digital Straightening Iron vs Drybar Tress Press Digital Styling Iron
I am shopping for a flat iron and I was considering the Drybar Tress Press, until I saw the Babyliss Nano Titanium Digital Straightening Iron, which is $50 cheaper, and I noticed they look nearly identical except with different labels and are in different colors. This made me think that those two irons could be essentially the same product but with different labels slapped onto them. I wonder if these two irons have the same manufacturer? I know that different brands of makeup have the same manufacturers so some makeup products are pretty much the same, but does this apply to hair tools as well? Take a look at the pictures, what do you guys think?

Q. Foundation Problems -- Oiley Skin X 10
I'm not sure what has been going on with my skin lately - but I haven't had any extreme problems with it in a while. Lately it seems like my skin started producing mass amounts of oil causing my foundation to start separating (this never happens). I'm in need of some recommendations for skin care because I know that is where it should all start. Right now I exfoliate my face twice a week with a strawberry sugar scrub I purchased from Sephora, following up with a normal face wash and then a charcoal pore face mask once a week. I'm using an oil free lotion but I honestly think it's horrible. I went to Sephora and tried a few samples of the fresh mattifying serum with the tatcha pore gel (it was alright). I'm trying to make my make up last longer and keep my oiley skin under control and need some skin care recommendations and maybe primer recommendations as well because I love my foundation but I want to make it work where my chin isn't shiny within four hours of wearing it and I don't have separation around my nose.   So far I haven't been a fan of the benefit porefessional primer or any of the makeup forever ones. If someone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.

Q. Lightweight Foundation for Combination Skin
I am looking for a new foundation.  A few years ago I started using Urban Decay foundation.  While I loved it initially, I have found I like it less and less as time goes on.  I feel that it just slides off of my face, or spreads after a long day.  I want something lightweight and natural looking, lately I have only been using concealer to cover up my red puffy areas or large pores.  So, I am looking for a foundation that is suitable for combination skin, oily t-zone, that is lightweight, not cakey, and can last all day without being touched up.

Q. Ceramic vs Ionic?? Looking for a new hair dryer
Helloooo!! I am looking for a new hair dryer and I have a few questions and was wondering if anyone would be able to answer them. My first is the classic "ceramic or ionic" question. I have normal to thick wavy/curly hair that does take a bit more effort to blow dry smooth. I loooove volume and I read somewhere that ceramic is better for volume but I feel like ionic would be better for my hair type because it's curly. Additionally, I can imagine that I would be able to create the desired amount of volume with a little help from my plumping mousse and velcro rollers if I had an ionic dryer. I also keep seeing words like "tourmaline" "nano titanium" and "titanium", can someone please clarify what they mean exactly?? I have my eye on the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Portofino (info is right here if you are not familiar  http://www.babylissus.com/product.php?pcID=206_153 &product_id=132 ) but I was also wondering which hair dryers you guys like the best/would be good for my hair type! Thank you One last thing, does anyone know any good hairsetters?? Babyliss makes hot rollers and I am looking for a nice set of PRO hot rollers, but it seems like not that many brands carry them, if you happen to know of any hot rollers that would be lovely. Thank you!! xoxo
