I'm a male, do I need to do anything different than a female would when applying makeup?
BEAUTY SAVANT kelloua / BEAUTY SAVANT BEAUTY SAVANT / replied
I think whether you're male or female makeup is personal.  It's all about figuring out what assets you want to play up or minimize. see post
Need Help with Serum
So I have been told by friends that after they wash their face and before they apply moisturizer, they apply a serum to make sure that their face is properly hydrated. I tend to be a bit on the oily side but sometimes can be a bit dry, especially in the winter. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or recommendations on whether I should try and integrate a serum into my daily routine and any brands of serums that are good? I tend to favour natural, paraben free products if possible. I use the clear complexion boscia cleanser and face cream. Thanks!

It's unfair!
So I need to talk to someone! I have been getting my wish list ready for chic week and one of the items I wanted to buy is the gamglow whitening device that was priced 199 dollars for a long time. Today I was checking my list again and for my surprise the same item is priced 220 dollars! Are you serious Sephora? 😪😪😪

I started this in Greenie's thread, but, people suggested to make a new thread for this, so here we are...   So, Spring is finally here. Or... sort of....

Let's have some fun! If anyone feels like joining me, please do.

It turned out I need to remove what's left of my "wisdom" asap... so.... I'll start the fun, and re-join you as soon as I can. But, you go ahead and have fun. I'll be watching, and live through you all!   Day 1 - Maybelline Vivids in Shocking Coral Day 2 - NARS Audacious in Brigitte + NARS lip gloss in Priscilla Day 3 - MAC Candy Yum Yum Day 4 - Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Romanesque Day 5 - NARS Audacious in Brigitte ( lightly ) over MAC Rosy Rim lip pen

How often do you wash your hair?
I am curious. I washed my hair EVERY SINGLE DAY for most of my teen years and early 20's. Now into my early 30s I am washing every other day. Which for the most part, helps extend my highlights that i pay entirely too much for every 8 weeks! lol

Contour Palette for Very Fair Skin?

I need a daily face wash for semi regular breakouts along my skin and cheek bones!
I am looking for a facewash to help my super combo skin! My t zone is extremely oily while my cheeks are pretty normal to sometimes dry. I do have a good number of break outs on my chin and cheek bones. Murad didnt help much and I have liked the First Aid Beaty but that doesnt help the blemishes. Anyone have any suggestions on great products for this?

Unicorn Wanted and Sightings
Hi everyone,    Since there are many LE items or discontinued items that we search for, I wanted to know if there is any interest in maintaining a thread to post any unicorns we stumble upon and list where it can be found so others can try to find these items that they are looking for. I thought this might be useful as I found a few items on my trip and also found it extremely helpful when a fellow BT member posted about the availability of Tom Ford's Nude Dip on Selfridges a couple of months ago so that a few of us could finally order this LE item.  I also thought that if there are LE items that people are looking for, they could PM me and I could add it to the main thread so that others would know what others may be looking for. I could update the Found Unicorns on the main post weekly. Looking for your thoughts, suggestions? This would be strictly for limited edition items and discontinued items. Please include location, date found, and price if it is selling for less or more than regular retail price. Thanks in advance!   Wanted Unicorns:   ABH amrezy palette ( minibux, BeautyIsPassion)   Chanel Ombre Contraste Sculpting Veil in Notorious (minibux,KateLovesYSL)   COTY Sephora Marsala eye palette (jcmb) COTY marsala blush palette (MK89)   Dior My Lady Blush in 001 and 006 (jellybean917)   Divergent set (ImHisAngel)   Guerlain Cruel Gardenia (Rhiannon1419)   Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous (Rhiannon1419)   Lorac mega pro (sdbeautyjunkie)   MAC pressed pigment in Summer Honey (StephaniLynn) MAC True Romantic Blush and MAC Petal Point blush (Javadoo) MAC Proenza Schouler Ocean City Coral blush ( notcreative)   Nars Douceur blush: (bea0t, Ivyxox)   Tom Ford Guilt cream shadow (killahbabe) Tom Ford Emerald Lust (Poisonivy9) Tom Ford Burnished Amber, Violet Dusk Eyeshadow Quads (KateLovesYSL) Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros (minibux) Tom Ford She Wolf (lipstick4soul) Tom Ford Blush in Narcissist (KateLovesYSL)

Q. How often do you return items to Sephora?
I know Sephora offers a wonderful exchange/return policy... but I feel bad returning my items.  I feel like I return my items about 50% of the time because honestly, after the first use I can tell I already don't like it.  I don't want to get on their list (of bad customers) for returning too many items, I'm honestly not trying to rip them off.

BEACH VACATION MAKEUP IDEAS
First off, let me be clear I do not like beach vacations. I hide under a huge sunhat under an umbrella, and get panic attacks at the thought of the sun touching my face - even when I'm wearing Bioderma's SPF 100 + Institute Esthederm's 100% block!   We do 4 beach vacations a year because the children like them, and I never have any idea about what makeup to take with me, or when to wear what. So I note that all the other women look ultra glamorous day and night, while I look ... lost.   Please, please, please give me tips for what makeup to wear to the pool/beach/dinner/breakfast/bar/stores etc.? Specific product ideas would be very welcome indeed!   Thanks in advance for any ideas and advice you are willing to share!

Korean Skincare... Actually Worth It?
I know Korean skincare/makeup is touted a lot on here. And a fair amount of it is REALLY affordable, and of course, tends to be really cute. My question is... what is the actual quality of the products/ingredients like? What would they compare to?   I don't want to buy a bunch of Innissfree face masks or a Tony Moly lipbalm, for example, if they're no better than the cheap ones I can get at a drugstore.   Aside from the "cute" and "unique" factor, I don't really "get" why Korean brands are recommended (not talking about the higher end stuff here). Insight appreciated!

Highlighters and contouring are the talk of the season. I wanted to start a thread where everyone can list their skintone and highlighters they own/like for different occasions. It could be a useful resource for anyone looking for highlighters. Are you guys in? I will start.   Skintone: Medium/ Mac NC30ish Highlighter Liquid- Becca Opal (Love it, most used), Benefit high beam (too light, good for fairer skintone) Cream- Benefit Watts Up (Good match, don't use it often) Powder- Kevin aucoin celestial powder in candlelight (Love it, most used)
