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
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
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.
I'm younger so I prefer natural eye looks that accentuate my blue/grey eyes without overpowering my fair/blond coloring. I have the naked basics pallete and am looking to make a larger pallete purchase. I'm not very into darker makeup or like a smokey or sultry look. Suggestions?
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.
Hello! I have always had very oily skin (I can soak up 2 oil sheets and usually go for a 3rd by mid-day). I was on birth control for 10 years and recently went off of the pill. During the time I was on the pill I always used the Clinique for combination skin regimen with cleanser, toner, and moisturizer twice a day because I had occasional acne. Since going off of the pill my acne has increased to the point where makeup isn't doing the job. It's definitely worse when I'm on my period, but generally I don't have a day where I don't have any acne. Right now I have cystic acne. I tried the Murad acne solutions for 3 months and didn't see a difference. I recently quit that and started using Aveda, so right now my morning and evening regimen is just the Aveda foaming cleanser and their acne pads, along with the Clinique Moisture Surge, but no difference. I also use Origins Super Spot Remover. Could someone recommend some better products that may help to clear my acne for good and to keep my oily skin at bay?
I love the Anastasia brow wiz but it gets a bit of a hackle when it runs out. It is a bit pricey and I was thinking why not use the pomade instead, to avoid the runout of product like how the brow wiz runs out. The only thing is I'm a bit afraid to use it, it's just more advanced to learn... I already have a angle brush I received in a brush set from amazon, so would that be ok to use too? A part of me wants to try it out and another part is saying don't do it, what do you think?
Hello, I am in search of a great preventative neck cream. Im 26 so I think I just need something preventative. I don't know if its best to just apply sunscreen in the am and something more specific for the night.. I don't really want anything too thick or really expensive. Any recommendations?
Hi everyone. Okay, so whenever I put under-eye concealer on it doesn't stay on my face for even an hour or two without dissipating. I use a colour corrector under my concealer ( Smashbox color correcting stick ) to cover my dark circles, followed by Kat Von D's Lock-it creme conealer that I lightly set with powder ( Laura Mericer loose setting powder ). I also set all my whole face with UD's All nighter setting spray . I do not use a lot of the corrector and concealer - I am very careful about that. Even though I do all of this, when I look in the mirror at work about 2hrs later, my concealer looks all broken up and strange, like it's wearing off my face or textured or something. I don't rub my eyes, so I don't get it. It really bothers me! I just can't seem to get that smooth, even look like all the beauty vloggers seem to achieve. Does anyone know how I can fix this or what is going on?? I would really appreciate the help!!!
Just went through my collection and disposed it of all expired lipsticks! Ready to try out new things. Any brand is welcome besides Lime Crime (allergic reactions)! ALSO, I haven't even on the BB in forever! HEY GUYS!!! Heres a photo as a skin tone reference point.
Hi, my friend has been asking around for a good product to alleviate her dry lips, but I don't have that problem so I came here for help. She doesn't want an exfoliator because they just irritate her lips even more. Her lips are EXTREMELY dry to the point that the area around her lips is also dry and red.
I have been blonde for about 2 and a half years now-I'm sure a lot of you know the maintenance that comes with it. I recently decided to dye my hair back to it's natural state, an ashy brown. After the first dye job, my hair didn't take all the color so I went back and got it redone 3 days later. It's not been about 3 days since the dye job and I washed my hair this morning with color depositing shampoo, and IM GREEN! My hair has this faint, green tint to it that is noticeable. I have read online that it's because I didn't have the right base...but I can't afford another dye job. I just purchased the Tressa Watercolor shampoo that should deposit color (I used John Frieda this AM) and it say's it has red tones in it. The red should cancel out the green right? As a 16 year old in high school, the last thing I want is green tint to my brown hair. What would you recommend? Use the Tressa and see what happens?
I am brand new to face makeup, ive been doing my eyes (eyeliner, mascara, primer) for years and am confident with that. I am looking to get into face makeu but I am very acne prone and i have oily skin. so i have been looking into acne fighting foundations and primers but my question is if i get an acne fighting primer do i need an acne fighting foundation? I have also been looking at bb creams that are also acne fighting and along with that i was thinking of using just that on my face in the place of foundation since it is a lighter product. with that though would i need a primer underneath it? which brings me back to my first question again, if it would need to be acne fighting also
Hi all! I am a big fan of Adelaide Kane (an actress from Reign, Teen Wolf, etc.). Recently, she uploaded pictures to Instagram from a photoshoot she had done with photographer Jordan Harvey. I fell in love with the soft color used on her cheeks and was hoping that the Sephora community might be able to make a recommendation on a blush that would dupe the blush used on Adelaide for the shoot. I did a little digging and found that the exact blush used for the shoot was Au Naturale Cosmetics Organic Creme Blusher in Rose (a soft burgundy shade). Any recommendations for this little obsession of mine? tags: blush, adelaide kane, rose, burgundy, au naturale, reign, cool, cool tone

I have a stye and am wondering if microwaving my beauty blender would get rid of the germs? I've microwaved before no problem but will it truly disinfect? I can't use antibacterial soap because it would just break me out when I use the beauty blender.
What is a good liquid foundation for combination skin, oily skin, that is light, and would cover up the redness of my skin? Looking for more coverage! I have only ever used powder as I have oily skin and didn't think that liquid would work for me but I want more coverage.
I recently picked 6 singles to customize my Buxom palette. Unfortunately 3 out of 6 are duds, not showing up whatsoever. Is it possible for me to return only those 3 or do I have to return the whole palette? Thanks a lot!
I was thinking about getting the Rust quad for my blue eyes but I'm scared that the orange might be too bright and would be hard to wear every day. I already have the Too Faced Natural Matte palette... is it worth getting the Kat Von D quad?
