Turning powder foundation into liquid
Can you mix powder foundations like, MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Golden Medium (from BAREMINERALS), with water to make it a liquid foundation? It may be best to just buy liquid foundation but it does not sit well on my face! So I was just wondering if it were possible to turn the matte powder into a liquid, with water, and apply it with a brush? Thanks!

I need a foundation based on my concealer
Guys, my current foundation shades just aren't doing it for me, but my concealer is a great match. So I am looking for a foundation that is closer to my concealer shade. I am using MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #6 Ivory.   I am open to any brand, any coverage, and finish. I just need that right color. So please feel free to suggest any foundation that is a match to my concealer.   Thanks guys!

Makeup Classes?
I didn't start wearing makeup until I was in my 30's.  The learning curve has been steep and there are still things I struggle with learning.   How do I find makeup classes in my area?  I don't want to go to a makeup counter, I want a true sit down and learn class.   Everyone and their mama is a MUA these days how do I go about finding a TRUE MUA and taking a class?   I really want to learn how do a winged liner (hooded eyes), apply eyelashes, contouring, highlighting and different shadow techniques.   Can you all help me?  I'm in the northeast close to DC/DelMarVa/Philly areas.   TIA   NAA

Beauty Basics - What would you consider must have for skincare and makeup
I had a friend ask me what I would consider basics for beauty and skincare as she is just starting out in the beauty world and is looking to get a regimen going. However being the beauty junkie that I am I am trying to narrow down a list for her. So what would you consider Cosmetic and Skincare basics?

Vibrant Violet/Purple Lippies!
So, I really want to try a really vibrant violet lip color. I looked in past threads to get ideas but the last post was about a year ago and, let's be real, a whole lot of new makeup products come out in a year. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions! I am not looking for anything dark or vampy. I am contemplating Too Faced Violet Melted Lipstick. If anyone has any other ideas I would really appreciate it!

Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation color match help
Hi, everyone I could really use some color match help. I'm currently living in Japan, so I can't really go into a Sephora myself and get color matched, however I can order from Sephora online and they'll ship to me here. Anyway, I would love to order the Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation. I have been using Mac Studio Fix in the color NC20 for years. I'd like to try this new foundation but am not really quite sure, which color. Is there anyone out there, who might be able to know which color would best suit me? Thanks, sincerely.

Fake lashes during the daytime?
I have lots of eyelashes however they are very short. I know it's weird. After wearing mascara, it turns out quite good. However, I'm so tired of wearing mascara at the moment that I'm considering wearing fake lashes everyday (even at work). I work at an insurance firm. I'm just wondering if you girls will wear fake lashes too during the day at work?   Thanks.

Tarte 12-Hour Foundation makes me look shimmery....
So, I have the tarte 12 hour foundation in medium tan and I am in love with it. I used to hate it because I bought the duel ended foundation brush (flat top and pointed) to apply it and it looked streaky.. but I now use the real techniques pointed foundation brush and I like how it looks like now. HOWEVER, everytime I wear this foundation I can see the bits of glitter or shimmer on my face. I tried blending it away and its still there...And its really noticeable when I'm in the sun! It's really embarrassing and my sister asked me why I wore glitter on my face.    I want to know if any of you have had this problem or had and know how to sort of deal with it. I really love the coverage, consistency, and the overall look of it and want to use it up!    I'm not sure if its the brush I'm using or whatever.. I do use a primer and I put a powder or it (either my benefit or rimmel stay matte or BM mineral veil) and it still looks shimmery.

On the hunt for a new serum...what should I try next?!
A little bit about my skin: I am 24 and have combination/dry skin   I am currently using Philosophy Time in a Bottle as my serum and am really liking it, however I am running out of it and looking to switch it up for a bit. I just don't want my skin to get too used to Time in a Bottle since I am still young and will probably really "need" it in the future lol.   I do want a serum with anti-aging benefits and hydration is always a plus.   Thanks for taking the time to read this! Looking forward to reading all the suggestions

Feedback pop-up on Sephora - here's my reply.
So I was surfing BT a little and I get a pop-up (at least I think it was a pop-up, maybe i accidentally clicked the button at the bottom lol) that says "Favourite thing about Sephora.com? What new feature should we add?"   Here is my response.   "Sephora treats their Canadian customers horribly. I understand that we have to pay taxes and now duties (geez thanks) - and that's fine. BUT, our minimum $ amount for free shipping is $75! Whilst our American counterparts' minimum is only $50. Also the markup on the products is ridiculous! I know that there is an exchange rate but I also know that it is NOT THAT MUCH! (and all the prices vary in markup, hence how i know that it's mainly markup and not just the exchange rate). Not to mention things like the fragrance sets. We don't get the voucher for the free purfume of our choice, but Americans do?! How the heck is that fair?!?! Basically, treat us Canadians better - or we'll just spend our money elsewhere, and Sephora - you will be become our last resort."

Vincent Longo Starlette Gel Eye Stains- Anyone tried these?
So I purchased two of these last week and just tried them out today. They are very odd to me...like a watercolor for the eye (I think that may be in the official description), very light and transparent but color is buildable. I bought two colors and applied one to each eyelid just using the soft application tip. The color was patchy and it took awhile for it to dry before I could put on a second and then third coat. Plus, these contain a moderate amount glitter (definitely not shimmer) which almost strikes me as odd for a product so transparent. I think using a brush to even out the color would definitely help tremendously but I was doing this as my little girl was in the tub so I didn't have much time!   The colors I got are Chartreuse and Ginger Lily. The first swatch pic is without flash, the other with. The top two colors are one coat only and the bottom is three coats. I know these pics are not great but I felt the need to include something.   If anyone's tried these, let me know what you think and if you're having success with them and how. Also, any of you MUA's (or anyone else!) even if you haven't used these, if  you have suggestions, lay 'em on me. BTW, the pics are without primer and just using the applicator to apply. When I put them on my eyes I used primer and then I also tried them with NYX white shadow base.

Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet color help!
I ordered the color #35 last week. Before I ordered the full size, I tested a sample (some months ago) and the color kinda matched. I also tested #30 but found it a bit pink on me. Sometimes beige looks fine on me but sometimes don't. I am light-medium and possibly have yellow undertone. Would #40 work for me? But isn't #40 be darker than #35? 35 is 2 shades darker than I am and looks orangey. I think my skin got lighter. Anything above 30 is too light for me though. Also, will I be able to exchange the foundation for another color if I used a bit of it? (I used it once because I thought the color was fine at first.) My skin looks pinkish here. But I have some yellow in my skin. That stripe is the #35 color.
