I have previously gotten 1R02 on the Color IQ chart, and it's not too dark, but it looks way too yellow on me. I have dry skin, and want a medium-to-full coverage foundation. Any color/foundation recommendations? Thanks to all suggestions.
Face Q&A
Hi everyone!  I was hoping you all could give me some recommendations for a good medium coverage, quick to apply, every day foundation.  For days when I need/want more coverage I use Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ which I love!  For days when I have less time or want less coverage I'm currently using Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream.  I love the ease with which it can be applied but I'd like a bit more coverage as well as more help in controlling oil. I have very pale skin which has made foundation shopping difficult in the past (MUFE MV #15).  It seems like so many lines just don't offer shades light enough for my skin tone.  I have combination skin that tends to get pretty oily on my nose and chin.  Also, I use the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer and, even though its expensive, I haven't found anything that works better. Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
Face Q&A
I need help finding a foundation for everyday use. I have tried dozens and can not find the right one. I have read that for acne prone skin to try a tinted moisturizer but did not like the coverage it gave me. Everything I try either breaks me out or is not enough coverage. Help please!!

Makeup
  I am looking for a new foundation to purchase, unfortunately I don't exactly know my skin tone because I don't have any local Sephora stores. Currently I am using Dior star fluid foundation in the color 010 ivory. I was wondering what my color would be in the Kat Von D Lock it foundation and the Giorgi Armani Luminous silk foundation. Thanks! 
Acne
i know I'm not supposed to pick at my pimples... but isn't using a blackhead tool on my forehead/chin/nose beneficial? they won't come out by by themselves!

Hi! I have a bad habit of not wearing sunscreen but I just moved to the high desert and it's clearly necessary. How much spf do I need and can you recommend a sunscreen or moisturizer with spf (sephora or drugstore) that isn't greasy, won't cause acne, and can be worn smoothly under makeup? And on that note, should I wear foundation primer over the sunscreen? Thanks.

Face Q&A
I went to Sephora for a Custom Makeover on Friday, specifically looking for a new foundation. I'm 42, very oily skin, large pores, fine lines under the eyes and some moderate forehead lines. I'm looking for a foundation that provides moderate coverage (lighter than medium coverage), has a good matte finish, will last all day without breaking up, won't settle into the creases, and can be applied with a beauty blender or sponge.   The associate used Lancome Teint Idole Ultra foundation on me. It did stay all day for sure, but it felt like such heavy coverage I was wearing a mask and the finish was way too dewy, even with an oil control primer and setting it with Laura Mercier translucent setting powder.    What other foundations should I try? I have been using Benefit Hello Flawless Powder -- I love how light it feels and it starts with moderate coverage, but as soon as I get oily it looks terrible in the forehead wrinkles, breaks up and slips off my face. Even with primer and setting spray.   Thanks for the advice!

Hello! My foundation is starting to look slightly orange on me. It is fairly new and I use primers and setting powder. I currently wear Sephora 10hr wear in Light Cream 20 (Y). What would be a lighter shade? My Skin IQ is 2y06.  Thank you!!!!!!!
Makeup
I'm looking for a new sheer lipstick, and have been using Bite Beauty's Lush Lip Tint and the Dior lip glow for a while now. I've also been using the Clarins lip product in the squeeze tube.   I'd love to try out a new sheer lipstick but I'm not too sure where to start.   Surratt's Lipslique has intrigued me (specifically Bandy, Hevyn, Nu De Soleil, and Gamine), but since there isn't a way to sample these near me I have no idea which color will work. Swatches online also don't help because they're arm swatches, and I need more reference points since I have warm olive skin.   I've tried YSL's sheer lipsticks but I'm not sure how in love with the color I was. Anybody have any other thoughts on sheer lipstick brands and colors?   If you've tried any of the Surratt lipsliques, what are your thoughts?

Acne
I've had acne for the past 6 years, and I just can't get rid of it. I have SUPER pale skin, and I've been told that green corrector only works for tan-ish skin. I've also been told that yellow is better for pale skin and acne scars. My acne is ALL over my face, mostly on my chin, and left cheek. I really need to know what color corrector to use!! (and also a brand??)
Face Q&A
Which would you recommend? I have combination skin, I do not wear foundation everyday since I feel like it always is cakey/ clogging my face. It also looks very dry and flakey sometimes. I have tried so many different. (Laura Mercier, Tarte, Clinique, Makeup Forever, MAC, Low end foundations, Smashbox,etc) I cannot seem to find one I love. Ive heard good things about both NARS Luminous Weightless Foundation. Ive also heard good things about Laura Mercier Candleflow Foundation. My favorite thing to use right now is Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. My perfect color is BISQUE. Which foundation would you recommend? and If recommending Nars which color is closest to Bisque? I Believe the description for bisque is Light with pink/yellow undertones. (Although I think I am sort of more medium toned) but it matches! Thanks !!!

Hi I use the born this way foundation in color  natural beige and I want to get in to contour my face but I'm not sure which concealer to use to highlight my face and to contour  I been looking in high end and drugstore like maybe line and  la color pro but I can't find the color that goes with me 
Face Q&A
Previously I've been using the Porefessional primer with my cream moisturizer. But I've changed to a gel hydrating moisturizer (Clarins HydraQuench Gel Cream) and every time I use the primer afterwards it seems to combine and clump together into little balls of primer (kind of like those dead skin face peels). I even tried waiting until the moisturizer sets in my skin and dries to apply primer, but there will still be a little bit of clumping happening. I'm sure it's not because the primer is getting old, because I got it only a couple months ago and it also works fine with my Murad Oil Control Mattifier moisturizer.    Which types of primers should I be looking for that works well with gel moisturizers and doesn't clump?
Makeup
So I had the color IQ test done two different time and both times came back with the same answer, 4Y06, Which is a light-medium with yellow undertones. But then when I went to ulta to get matched she said I was fair with neutral to pink undertones. And I've always been bad at finding the right foundation shade. I was just wondering which I should trust more?
Hair
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!
Face Q&A
Does anyone know the comparable shade of Make Up For Ever that would match Kat Von D shade 49 light?

Hello,   I've been using the Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Corrections Pads for quite some time now. I noticed a month or two ago that they were out of stock, and now the website states that they cannot be shipped to the US.    I was wondering why is this item no longer available for purchase here? and will it be again? I also noticed that Sephora stores no longer carry this product.   I have had great results using the pads, and I would preferably like to continue using them as well as purchasing them through Sephora.    Otherwise, what other products would you recommend that are similar?   Greatly appreciate your response.   Thanks

I am 18 years old and love makeup but have never done much to care for my skin at all. I'm trying to turn that around and start a routine that will keep my skin healthier and delay signs of aging. What routine would you recommend for me and do you have specific product recommendations? Thanks so much!

Oily Skin
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??

Help! I have such oily skin. By 12pm my face looks so greasy. Any suggestions on primers or creams to put on? I do not want a lot of caked on makeup for my everyday look
Makeup
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.

Lips Q&A
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.

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.
