Help with make up
So i used to tiny bumps and lots of small pimples all around my cheeks and forehead, and these few months, they've cleared up a lot and i am comfortable to go out without makeup except for this issue: I may look fine in my mirror, but once i go out in sunlight....i see dark dots on my face, kinda like acne marks and i look horrible and uncomfortable in my skin again. so what did i do? I put on make up. looks awesome in my mirror, looks fine in the sunlight, but in certain lights, my face looks so dry and the bumps are accentuated.   ive tried a range, from kat Von d lock it foundation, makeup forever foundation, Laura merrier powder foundation, concealers.....other foundation...bb cream... Gverythung.  But i still look horrible in many lightings and my skin skin looks so bad.... so ive tried concealers, liquid, powder.... Pretty much everything.... I even have the water spritzers... But nothing works.    What products can i use?

Roller balls and eye creams?
I have always wondered about those cooling roller balls, but never introduced them to my skin care regime as I thought they wouldn't provide much hydration to replace my eye creams. Do people generally use roller balls with an eye cream?  Is there a recommended step to use it (i.e.  day or night, before eye cream or before make up)?  Do you have any specific product recommendations? Let me know, I am very curious! Sugarislove

Brow powder duo. Which color to choose?
Can anyone tell me or suggest to me what would be a good brow powder duo.? Dark brown or ebony for my color hair and brows.? I want a natural look. I recently went into the store and tried ebony it looked really good, I asked the sephora consultant and she tried dark brown on me as well, I couldn't really notice a difference between the two. Im just scared if i get dark brown and take a picture with flash you will be able to see two different color shades, She told me to use a light hand with the ebony color if I chose that. I'm just really confused on which color to choose. I use the brow wiz in dark brown.any suggestions advice? thanks in advance. a PICTURE OF MY NATURAL BROW       My Hair color with my brows filled in with brow wiz dark brown.

Help! My Skin is Parched and Super-Sensitive!
I am in desperate need of a new skincare plan. I have a few ideas so far: Investing in the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush! Clé de Peau Beauté masks! But...I need a great moisturizer to use daily. I am torn between the Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream Moisturizer, and the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry to Dry Combination Skin. I am very pale, with super-parched, tight skin. I have very, very sensitive skin and allergies to most plants, flowers, botanicals, and artificial chemicals. I do not break out easily, but suffer from skin redness when it gets irritated or dry, due to air pollution, impurities, etc. Both have received wonderful reviews, so I am hoping someone can provide me with a bit of a breakdown as to any reactions/differences one would notice between the two products. Thanks for your help!

Is there a BB cream better than Guerlain's Beauty Booster?
Guerlain is my benchmark on BB creams and I've tried a lot. The big problem with it was that it only had 2 colors, One was too light and one was too dark for me. Now however they have introduced an in between color and I'm thinking of ordering it.   Before I do though, are there any others in the same league as Guerlain that I should consider?   BTW I've tried Too Faced, Stila, Clinique, Estee Lauder (was the closest in overall quality and a few of Dr. Jart (to ashen for my skin tone).    Thanks for your input.

Concealing discolored dark skin blemish, product needs to be compatible with spray tanning
Hi --   I'm preparing to do an amateur bodybuilding competition in a month, and I've been tanning for awhile using a "professional grade" bronzing lotion.   Approximately two months ago I injured myself on the left side of my chest.  The wound has healed but unfortunately there is now a blotchy 2" x 1" area which is noticeably darker than the surrounding tanned skin.  Even though I have put an opaque bandage over the area when I tan, the discoloration is not fading all that much.   A day before the bodybuilding show, I get spray tanned on top of my "base" tan.  This is necessary because even though I have a fairly dark tan right now, the theatrical lighting on-stage is so bright that my "natural" tan will look washed-out and without the spray tan I'll wind up appearing grey.   So, I think I'm going to need some sort of makeup to cover the blemish, but not only does it have to blend with my tanned skin, it has to be compatible with the spray tan.  I'm guessing that I'd apply the blemish concealer before spray tanning, but being that I know virtually nothing about cosmetics, I'm not sure about this.   Anyway, I have no idea what would be a good choice of product to use, so I figured that I'd "Ask The Experts."    - Dan

Why did I get 3Y11 on skin IQ?
I use bareMInerals original foundation in medium tan, I was initially matched to the wrong shade a fact that I didn't pick up on until I walked out of my house looking like that and people asked me what happened to my face. So I made sure this time it was right so I asked around a couple of sephoras and asked several different cast members to make sure I got matched to the right one, I was matched to medium tan thrice and its a perfect match even in bright sunlight. But medium tan is 1y09, while my match was 3y11. I wanted lighter coverage so I wanted something else the cast member when she realized that I use bareminerals, recommended their broad spectrum foundations as a more sheer alternative and matched me to golden tan which is also 1y09. At an Estee Lauder warehouse sale they matched me to Clinique perfectly real foundation in shade 34, which is also 1y09. So I am obviously 1y09, so why did I get match to 3y11? Plus 2 out of the 3 3y11 foundations I tried on were too light for me. What is up with that?
