I was sooo disappointed to find out that Dior had discontinued their Extase line of mascara and need a good alternative. Tried Better than Sex, Rollerlash, They're Real (different but better than the others), Diorshow, ect but haven't found one that lives up to Extase. Your suggestions are appreciated- thank you.
I'm wearing a navy blue dress and I'm using the Modern Renaissance palette for my eyes. I have very pale neutral-toned skin, blue eyes, and very dark brown hair. I would really like something that doesn't need to be reapplied to often and doesn't look super weird when it wears off.
My skin is both oily and dry. I'm also have large pores and very fair, and sensitive skin. Would love skincare recommendations as well as foundation/primer/concealer etc recommendations. I find that my foundation gets patchy and dry looking fast no matter what I try.

PS-Here's a few pictures of me to go off of what you think would look best<3 and here is the dress(: it will be sewn together in the middle so it's a one piece dress, and i'm not sure what types of accessories i want
Hello, I was wondering if anyone had some skincare suggestions. I am fairly new to the world of skincare and I really want to work towards more radiant skin. I have sensitive and combination skin. I also have some acne problems, but those aren't my main priority at the moment. I was looking into some of Sephora Collection's cleansers and was wondering how those are. Also, how is the Urban Decay Hot Springs Hydrating Gel and would it work alone as a moisturizer? If you have any suggestions or tips, I would really appreciate the help! Thank you!
Recently I was matched with the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation in the shade R260. I loved how it looked in the store, so I purchased it. I've used it a few times and I've noticed that after a few hours it starts to crease under my chin/neck and an orange "band" (I guess you could call it) forms. I make sure to use a pretty damp beauty blender to not only apply the foundation but to also blend it onto my face and neck as well. Before I even apply the foundation I moisturize my face and then apply the Porefessional primer by Benefit. Is my foundation too dark for me? Or is it an operator error? PLEASE HELP!
I do have sensitive, acne prone skin, I want something that makes me look'alive' and covers on days i have a break out yet be natural and i can use it as a canvas for my face(to build up and go out )... Found ation? BB cream? .. I do have dry skin too and today I got the Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector, but it said online its for combination skin? It would be great if it had an SPF too! Please Advice!
I'm trying to justify spending the $ for a mid to high end TM I haven't worn a foundation, TM, BB cream or really any kind of facial tinting product in about 7 years so I don't remember how long bottles/tubes usually last. What kind of TM do you use, how many days a week do you use it and about how long does it last you?
I'm trying to decide between Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea foundation and NARS Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturizer. I really don't need much coverage at all, I just want to even out my skin's appearance. Despite the "tinted moisturizer" branding, one of the "cast members" at Sephora told me that was misleading and that the NARS TM was actually serious coverage for a TM. Which of these two will offer lighter coverage? It may be worth adding that I'm very, very fair (Terra Nueve in NARS and Fair Neutral in Tarte) and have a difficult time finding foundations/TMs in a shade that will work for me (and I try to stay cruelty free as much as possible), so I'd like to stick to Tarte or NARS brands.
I have so so many clogged pores on my face and I have no idea what to do. Does anyone know how I can get rid of them? I just started a new skincare routine today: 1) Simple Micellar Water 2) Clean & Clear Pore Cleansing Face Wash 3) Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner 4) Hydrating Serum 5) Moisturizer ---- any thoughts on that?
So I've for a long time been looking for the perfect bronzer, and I've put it down to two bronzers, that I have to chose between. I'm asian with medium/olive skin tone, and I don't really have any skin problems. So I want to ask you, which one do you like better and why? Or if you only have one of them, why do you like or dislike the product?
Hey all - I know there are some questions like this already but wanted everyone's updated opinions. I'm doing my own makeup for my wedding day and wanted to find a setting powder that didn't have much flashback as I will be in a lot of photos that day! Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder was recommended to me before. Does this cause flashback? Thanks in advance!
Okay my face overall is pretty light/pale in color, but uh.. years of sun damage on my lower face has made my mouth area slightly darker. But my neck is pale so it looks super weird if I try to match the rest of my face to the color of my chin/mouth area. But if I wear a lighter foundation to match my neck and other areas on my face, the chin/mouth area looks really ashy and grey. I thought maybe color correcting can help me, to wear them underneath my foundation. But I have no idea which color works for brightening a big area of dark patches? The color isn't blue/purple/yellow anything, although I guess it falls under the category of "sallowness", but I've tried lavender colors before and it just makes the area look even more ashy and unattractive. Any ideas? Would orange work? I thought orange was for the green/blue like, for undereyes and such.
I am looking for recommendations for an Asian bridal make-up and hair artist in the San Gabriel Valley, CA area (especially in Pasadena, Alhambra, San Gabriel) to do fresh, natural (not over-done) Asian makeup for my wedding day. I am hoping to spend $300 or so (including wedding hair/make-up and trial hair/make-up) to find an artist who is professional and well-reviewed. I also need an artist who has a studio or salon at which to meet since I don't want to have my hair/make-up done at my house or at the venue. Please message me if you've worked with an artist, and can highly recommend them. I'd prefer artists who work with a lot of Asian brides (some make-up artists struggle with Asian eye makeup), and who can do both hair and make-up. I am attaching pictures of the type of natural Asian make-up look that I'm going for. I
Hey, My skin is very pale, my chin, creases of my nose and forehead are often dry but my cheeks, T-zone become oily during the day.I am having troubles finding a foundation that will actually work for my skin even after going into a few of the sephora stores. I have been using CLINIQUE Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup and I love it. It works great. The downside is that I am too pale for Clinique's lightest shade which is linen. I am shade 1Y01. I have tried make up forever ultra HD and found it looked cakey on me and clung to all my dry skin (around the edges of my nose, forehead and chin). Then I tried Kat Von D's Lock it and that too looked like I just crushed chalk up, mixed with water and painted my face (was even a little whiter then my face!). Ive tried BB creams but they dont do much for me other then make my T-zone worse.I am currently using Urban Decays All nighter foundation but I am finding that it applies nice but after setting for 3 min you can see its clinging to my dry skin again. Acne isnt something I really have to worry about as i only get one or two pimples every now and then but I do try to cover my veins because I am really pale and you can see them (yes i get sunlight I swear I just dont get any color or burn) I just dont know what to use now.. Losing hope in foundations lol! Thanks.
My go-to loose powder (Cover FX Illuminating Setting powder) isn't available in the US anymore. What's a good substitute that is good for all-over daytime coverage with just a touch of glow—not shiny or glittery. I'm fair-skinned and would need translucent, if possible, or very light shade.
Okay... So I have extremely dry skin and use many products to prep my skin before applying foundation with my beauty blender.. I use peter Thomas roth's cloud serum, Dr. Jart ceramidin gel-cream after and sometimes even Neutrogena hydro boost water gel under the Dr. Jarts when im super dry.. then I go in with baby skin primer from the drug store (open to finding a new primer primarily for dry skin or filling fine lines.) I apply my foundation and everything is golden until I apply my concealer, I use Urban Decay naked skin concealer (I've used Nars creamy concealer and Maybelline instant age rewind also) . My problem is.. If I don't set it, it definitely creases within seconds... But if I do set it, it instantly looks dry and starts to crease within the next couple hours.. And im talking bad.. makes me look like im 5 years older than I am. So what am I doing wrong? Is it the concealer im using? The setting powder? I feel like ive tried everything. Oh and I use Maybelline fit me set + smooth pressed powder to set my make up. Looks great on my face but not so much under my eyes. I've also used Laura Mercier secret brightening powder to set with and I wont even try to describe how awfuly that worked for me lol.
Hey Y'all, My dress that I am wearing to my formal next month is emerald green and has a very low back? Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should do my hair and makeup for this dress? Thanks. Melissa
I am looking for a new night time moisturizer. I have noticed that my skin has become duller, and my skin texture has become more uneven. So I am looking for something to help brighten and help with skin texture. Hoping for some insight on night time treatments, maybe even some kind of serum.... just not sure what to look for.
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?
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.
Anybody know if the Daisy & Daisy Eau So Fresh mini gift set contains spray bottles? I have received minis before that are not sprays but splashes, and I haven't used them for that reason. http://www.sephora.com/daisy-daisy-eau-so-fresh-mi ni-gift-set-P416005?skuId=1904333&icid2=products%2 ... I want Daisy, but I don't use perfume enough to warrant a 1 oz bottle, and it gets funky after two years or so. And I prefer sprays to rollerballs! Thanks
