Any tips for "waterproofing" eye makeup?
My left eye gets watery from time to time and after about 2 hours I end up with one eye perfect and the other is a mess. My mascara is fine, but my shadow is wrecked from the moisture.  I never rub my eye, just gently dab the outer corner (where it's watering) with a tissue or the edge of my finger.  In my ideal world there would be a product I can use to spray on my makeup like a sealant (someone, please make my day and tell me such a product exists!) but until then, I'll settle on advice from my favorite fellow beauty junkies!

Glad I have someone to commiserate with!  It completely sucks! Most of the time it's when I have a rockin look too.  It's never when I have a simple more natural eye.  (... see post

How to mix OCC Lip Tars...
Just wondering, how do some of you mix OCC lip tars? Do you put a layer of one color on your lips and then put a layer of another color on top of it? Or do you mix it else where (like on maybe a paper plate, for example) and then put it on?   Thanks for any and all answers!! :-)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Event @ Sephora Eaton Centre!
Hey guys! Just wanted to let everyone know about the ABH event happening on Sep. 20th at Toronto's Eaton Centre.   It's appointment-only, from 12-7pm. Anastasia herself will be there, as well as her brow team to give you a mini brow makeover. The makeover will consist of filling in/shaping brows and showing you different techniques for what you want to achieve. No plucking/waxing involved!   Also, I heard from an SA that if you buy any Anastasia product during the event, you will get a GWP (a clear brow gel & brow powder, apparently).

Q. Extreme concealer frustration
This is my first time posting here, and I am in desperate need of some advice. I have tried several different concealers (both drugstore and high-end from Sephora) and have yet to find a product that really matches my skin-tone. I have quite pale skin (some would say very pale) with pink undertones, which are not deep at all. For reference, the shade 001 (Light) in Dior's Diorskin Nude BB Crème matches my skin flawlessly.   Essentially, my problem is that all of the concealers I've tried have an orange or yellow base, and I need one with more of a pink base, but I've been unable to find one. I'm currently contemplating trying the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Fair, but from looking at the swatch online here, it also looks like it has more of a yellow/orange base and I'm leery of spending the money if I'm just going to have to return it. I've been unable to find any youtube video reviews of that shade, and my closest Sephora store doesn't carry them.   So, I am taking to this board in the hopes that one of you wonderful readers will be able to help me with my dilemma. Also for reference, I've tried Bobbi Brown's Face Touch-up Stick in Warm Ivory (the shade that was recommended to me) and it too is too orange. I've also tried Tarte's  Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Fair, but it was too light. I'm currently using the Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla, but it too has a more orange base, and it doesn't work well for me when I have to use it to cover acne blemishes; I wind up with patches on my face that are darker than the rest of my skin because of the concealer's base tone.   I've also tried Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage in SC 2, thinking I could blend a custom color, but it was too cake-y in texture and also had the same issue with the orange base tones. I realize I've rambled a lot here, but it's a frustrating situation. I would greatly appreciate any advice or opinions on which product might work for me. The other alternative is to drive to my nearest Sephora store and get in-store help; and that store is 80 miles away. Thank you very much in advance for your advice/help!

Skin Care Regimen for oily, post-acne skin?
What are a few awesome products from Sephora for a complete   skin care regimen to help someone with post-acne scars/discoloration or dark spots/oily skin in order to brighten up and even out the skin's tone and texture?   I don't get acne anytime during the month EXCEPT when it's "that time" of the month, so that is not my main concern. It's more about the acne I had when I was younger and the discoloration and unevenness it has left on my skin. Just looking for something to brighten, even out, and smooth my skin out!   I'm thinking exfoliator, peel, moisturizer, cleanser? Thoughts? Thank you!

moisturizer so makeup don't get dark
Hi all =)  I tried finding previous topic on this but unable to so any link to previous post or if you have answer will be greatly appreciated ^__^     My face is really dry right now so I started to wear moisturizer and/or oil under my primer.  I tried several combination with different result: -  moisturizer (caudalie lip and eye and ole henriksen truth creme/ origin day ginzing), smahbox primer, bb cream, then smashbox powder.  I find using thosse moisturizer makes my face darker than it was before, resulting in my neck being much lighter than my face (so no good =I) - tarte oil, smahbox primer, bb cream, then smashbox powder.  Using this, my face so much streak it's not even funny.Applying powder makes it better but I spend so much time trying to get my bb cream to blend from the ugly streaks =(     With winter coming, I know there will be time to use moisturizer under makeup.  Do you guys have any recommendation for moisturizer that won't change the color of my makeup?  I'm pretty happy with my makeup routine right now but any recommendation for anything that should be change would be appreciated.    Thanks =)

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Color Question
Ok. So I discussed the diff. w/ a cpl of BT'ers about this Pressed Skin Perfector vs. the liquid. I have went back and forth and decided on this formula. However, with the suggestions in the last Post I am unsure of the correct color. I would think that either Opal or Moonstone would be perfect for me. I just don't know which one I should go with. I have never seen these in person ( & can't just run over to my Sephora & try it out, way too far). I have light to med. Skin w/ neutral undertones. I would like to be able to use this easily and however I would like. What do you suggest for me to seal the deal? Thanks in advance

Urban Decay - Honey shadow/liner
Does anyone have any dupe swatches for the UD honey color? I'm utterly depressed that I haven't found anything that quite comes close to the brassiness it has, as most other colors come up as straight gold (el Dorado) or gold-brown (Baked) without the brightness.   Looking to match this with Smog, thus the focus on this being a tonal brightness.   All suggestions welcome and thank you! <3

Anti Wrinkle/Anti Acne
I'm looking for advice on preventing wrinkles, while not causing more acne. I have oily/combination skin and get acne frequently (3-5 pimples per week), but am starting to develop slight wrinkles on my forehead (I know, there are worse things happening in the world!).
