I have been starting to plan my next 'big' Sephora Haul and I created some questions about going from the Beauty Insider Status to the VIB status. So when it says that you have to spend $350 or earn 350 points in one calendar year, when does that calendar year start? Does the year start when you purchase your first product or the day that you make your account? Then also to maintain your VIB status are you then required to spend $350 every year to continue being a VIB? Any feedback is appreciated! Thank you !
I'm only 23 so I'm probably a little too young to be using this serum but I got it as part of a package so I thought why not. I have combination to dry skin and I don't normally have pimples unless it's the time of the month. But I've been having breakouts ever since I started using this serum. It's been a week and the pimples just keep popping out, although at a slower rate. Should I stop using it and return it or should I use a smaller amount for my skin to adapt to it?
Hello, can anyone help me with makeup ideas? I am a junior in high school and I can't seem to achieve the right look for homecoming. I have a SEPHORA pallet and the naked basics pallet. My dress is a navy blue, my eyes are green and yellow, my hair is blond, and I am fair skinned. Can anyone help please?!
What I'm looking to do is pin up style hair with pin curls. I have super fine, somewhat thin hair straight hair. I know I need some sort of setting lotion or spray in before I put the pin curls in. Any suggestions for something that will give hold and body without making it sticky or oily?
Hi all, does anybody know if the Kat Von D lipstick vault with the 20 lipstick shades has been and gone? I've seen that it's release date was meant to be September 25th and was wondering if It had been released and has already sold out I'm like permanently on this site so I can't believe I would have missed it but maybe i have been unlucky? Does anyone have anymore info on it?
😢 My Mom is now in Heaven with my Dad. She EARNED that place in Heaven Every Day Of Her Life. Now it is eternal peace for her in an unbroken body. She missed my amazing Father terribly. More update/info on original "911" thread, think it may be in 'Off-Topic' section. Hope this can stay here a while, I need even more prayers now.....dealing with the not so nice and ALWAYS ready for a fight sibs. No Mom to defend and hug me. 😢 Thanks everyone.
I've recently gotten interested in skincare and way too obsessed with trying to find the best of each type of product. How do you ladies trial your skincare products? And how long do you give a product before you decide it isn't working? I've been using Sunday Riley Start Over on one eye and Bliss Energizing Eye Gel on the other for the past two weeks and I don't think I've seen a difference yet. The SR eye might be slightly better, or that's just what I want to see...I can't tell. Is two weeks long enough?
I'm 22, almost 23, but constantly get told I look anywhere from 15-18. Nobody believes I've graduated high school, let alone undergrad and am now in a graduate program. If I don't wear makeup, the age range drops down to about 13. If I had a dollar for every time someone told me "you'll appreciate it when you're older" I'd have A LOT of dollar, but ultimately I'm just sick of not being taken seriously at school/in the workplace/by people who are distinctly younger than me. Are there any tips for utilising makeup to make myself look more my age without also looking like a teenager who raided her mom's makeup bag? I'm extremely pale, with normal to dry skin, and a lot of redness.
I'm 53, much sundamage, deep chin wrinkles and around my mouth and 11 lines, after my makeup is on for about an hour, I have a line of caked up makeup in my deep wrinkles that looks terrible, I have used Primers and they just get right in there with the makeup and make it worse. I use Clinique Superpowder and obviously need to switch. Is there a makeup that will work for me? I don't need advice on what to do for the wrinkles, I am on a skin care routine, I just want a makeup to cover and hide without the settling. Thanks in advance!
Is there any foundation that i can buy that wont start coming off and making my face look extremely oily. My bronzer always ends up looking extremely muddy at the middle of the day as well I go to school 7am-5pm so I know its a long time Any advice?
Opened up my new Bite holiday set, and found two Coulis and no Aubergine. Has anyone else had a similar issue? It's a bummer because getting to the store is highly inconvenient with a toddler and spouse (who is less than enthusiastic about cosmetics) at home.
If you highlight with concealer, is there any point of actually using concealer ,if you're going to cover it up with a lighter concealer? Or, would you opt for a powder highlighter and not use it under the eyes? Thanks
I feel I am more neutral-warm.... I tan easily, have green eyes, but kinda ashy natural hair..... I have medium skin tone, but my skin is more yellow looking. How would I pick a foundation? I think my veins are blue-ish though.... any advice?
Hi, Is there a simple rule of thumb when it comes to highlighting/contouring/bronzing? Like what products you shouldn't combine? Example: Can you use bronzer/highlighter the same time, bronzer and contour the same time, etc? Or any other make up 'commandments' thanks!
Hello! So, I have very pale skin with blue undertones, blue eyes (well, green and blue... central heterochromia, but not super noticeable), and really dark hair. I have trouble with my makeup due to this, since a lot of foundation is too dark for me. I'd also like to enhance both the blue and green in my eyes. Besides that, I look like a vampire no matter what I try! Even lighter lipstick, then it usually doesn't even last long (sorry, half asleep while typing... just went shopping). Foundation is probably the biggest issue for me though, besides choosing a blush. I get sweaty super easily and no matter what I try, the foundation comes off during the day and my acne scars and such show through. Any recommendations for products/help? PS; sorry this is so long!
I'm looking to try a BB cream for daily wear. I currently don't use anything on my skin make-up wise except a touch of concealer if needed plus Benetint (used to use Bareminerals powder foundation but found it blocked my pores). I have normal to oily skin, relatively clear with occasional breakouts. My requirements are light coverage, oil-controlling, SPF, non-comedogenic and has to be good for my skin. Does such a BB exist!? Thanks!
I'm 52, with blonde highlights. Over the past year, I've been noticing my hair is starting to thin in places. I'm really careful when I comb my hair after I shampoo, but it still comes out. I've tried "thickening", "color corrective" and "natural" no-chemicals added type shampoos but haven't seen any changes. Has anyone in my "age" category experienced anything like this, and if so - any good suggestions for hair care treatments?
Hey! I am looking for a moisturizer to complete my skin care routine.. Preferably one to be used at night (so I can bathe in it). I am partial to oils, but creams are fine. I am using a combo. of Josie Maran Cleansing Oil, for post makeup good cleaning, sometimes incorporating the JM Exfoliating Powder Cleanser... Ceramic slip and Good Genes (slip for morning, good genes every other night) Dr Dennis Gross' Alpha Beta chemical peels maybe 3-4 times a week, in the morning Boscia No Pores No Shine pre-makeup Does that sound like overkill? I dont have sensitive skin.. and my skin has been looking great with this system.. however I know I have to be smart and use a nourishing moisturizer that will really complement these cleansers and peels I'm applying. So! I have been using the Tarte Maracuja Oil.. No problems.. I bought it because it is supposed to help with elasticity; I had anti-ageing in mind when I bought it. However now I just feel weird using a cosmetic brand for skin care...I thought about switching to the Josie Maran Oils (I do have a sample) because it checks off every box I have for "concerns and skin tye" Any other product suggestions? Im considering things in the Sunday Riley Line Like Juno, Artemis and Flora.. but Im not sure which one is write for me.. My Skin: Combination (T zone oily, cheeks are a bit dry) Pores: enlarged!!, sebaceous filaments on my nose are my nemesis, clogged pores around my jaw (which will get the attention of a Derm. no products can treat these deep face demons) Not sensitive Could use some evening of skin color ***? Does anyone have experience using one or more of the sunday riley oils? Any product recommendations considering all sephora.com-available brands?
