Hello ladies. I'm wondering if you can help me plan my routine better and in the correct order. Should I have different products for night than what I use during the day? my skin type: a little dull I like brightening products. Dark eye circles. I get hormonal acne around my period even at 30 A little oilier in the t zone with some clogged pores on my nose but also can get dried out easily by some products (makes me combination right?) current am regimen wash face/ cleansing water serum eye cream moisturize *do I need to exfoliate or use toner? Anything I am missing? *PM is pretty much the same except sometimes I use dr Brandt Glow overnight serum or ole henrickson invigorating night treatment instead of ole henrickson truth serum. Should I have different products for face wash eyes and moisturizer?

Hello all! I live in a cold climate and lately realized I should probably be moisturizing my dry/combination skin soon after showering. I have rosacea and sensitive skin, but I have noticed that when I try and put on moisturizer after the shower it burns! It doesn't burn when I am applying it at other times (I shower at night) and I am just confused as to what is happening! So the next time I tried to prep my skin first and used the Origins Perfect World Treatment Lotion before putting on moisturizer, but that burned as well. Should I be using another product? Am I doing something wrong? I would love to have something to achieve a calming/cooling sensation after the shower. I have sensitive skin but I didn't think it was THIS sensitive.
Hi all, I have extremely dark and oily eyelids as well as seriously dark circles. I have tried every eye primer under the sun, and none really work. I recently read about putting concealer on my eyelids, setting with powder, and applying eyeshadow over that. If I conceal my eyelids - would I still use a primer over that? A little confused about this step. Thank you!
I need the color iq number for Clinique Perfectly Real foundation in shade #1. I've also worn the Clinique almost powder in shade fair. I haven't had any luck with the online shade finder because these two items have been discontinued. Can anyone help? I'm not near a store to go in to be matched.
Hello- I'm almost 30 and still getting zits regularly typically on my chin or on my forehead above the brow. I've been told chin zits are "hormonal" does this mean that at 30 I still have the raging hormones I had at 15?! Out of curiosity- why are they considered hormonal if they are on my chin? Are there other spots considered hormonal also? out of necessity- what are the best products to get rid of this type of acne or can it not be helped since it is due to hormones?
I am looking for a cruelty-free product that doesn't give flashback. Which is better-colored setting powder or a translucent powder? and pressed or loose powder? just what is the best way to set foundation?
Forgive me if I'm a Klutz - I just brought Benefit Soft and Natural Brow kit and I'm loving every products in that kit. However.......about the stencils. Both stencils (arch/straight, look 1 and 2) - I look closely and both look very similar - except when you feel it, you can tell the difference..... So, when I use one stencil, for example, straight, look 1, on my eyebrow, the question is....... should I flip around and use on my other eyebrow? Or take it out, turn it around, re-insert the stencil tool for my other eyebrow? Please forgive me for the useless question!
Hello I just purchased makeup forever HD foundation stick #127 which I love!!! I'm trying to purchase a concealer but not sure which one is the best for me I have really dry skin also... what color to purchase?
I'm in such need of being able to curl my eyelashes. They are straight as a board! With deep set small eyes, the 'normal' size curlers are just too large to fit in my eye socket. Besides being too large, I'm unable to get the eyelash curler to line up with the base of my eyelashes, because of my brow bone. I've spent hours and hours searching online for something that seems like it might possibly fit, and I've been drawn to the Shiseido Eyelash Curler (Item #1201474). After reading endless reviews it's easy to see how well this works for ladies with Asian eyes. My question is: From your experience of working with this product, do you feel it can also work with Caucasian eyes as well.....specifically such as my deep set small eyes? I would seriously love to hear any "experts" take on this or any Caucasian ladies who have tried this product. Thank you so, so much! Pia
Hello, I made a reservation to have my makeup done for prom and I'm super excited. I know I have to spend 50 dollars first. I was wondering, if I want to wear false lashes, do I have to buy them and have he/she put them on? Also, is it likely my artist will be able to do a full face job in 45 minutes? Thank you!
I've been using Bare Minerals original foundation for at least 10 years. Lately I don't feel like I get the coverage that I used to. I would like to try something different but I don't live anywhere near a store to get help picking a new one out. I do have issues with acne so I don't want anything super heavy or oily. I've been reading the reviews on the Urban Decay Weightless ultra definition liquid makeup. Any thoughts on that one? or any other recommendations? I wear medium beige in bare minerals. Thanks in advance!
Hi! I am 19 years old (lol my mom and I share an account) and I have extremely oily skin with enlarged pores, acne, and lots of texture. I recently got a sample of the Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++. It has done a fairly good job of keeping my oiliness at bay and I like that it has SPF in it, but I'm curious about the Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion for Blemish Prone/Oily Skin because it says it works better for smoothing out texture (I have lots of acne, enlarged pores, and bumpiness in the center of my face). I will be visiting my local Sephora to test out the consistency of the skin perfector but I was wondering what others think of these two products.
Ok ladies and gents--- I'm totally OVER the zits that keep popping up on my chin. When one goes away I get another one right next to it. I went into Sephora and the Beauty Expert told me her fave is the Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix so without thinking I scooped it up because 1. I have a blind faith in the sephora experts and 2. while I haven't used Murad products, I've always wanted to and know that they have a great reputation. So.... before I open it up, should I keep it and try it out (its only $16!) or do you all have another product that you think I MUST have...??
I have pretty pale skin, and i am trying to find a foundation to wear that isn't too overpowering. I went in and was reccomended the UD all nighter, and don't get me wrong it is an amazing foundation, it's just too much for everyday wear for me. Any ideas? I have combination skin.
I have incredibly pale skin. This is accompanied by dark circles under my eyes. And I generally have moderate-high oily skin and red coloring to my nose and cheeks. I have a hard time finding concealer that gives me the full coverage to camouflage these imperfections without it becoming cakey. I'm usually wary of purchasing makeup I'm unfamiliar with so I tend to stick to what I know, but I am looking to change this. Any advise on a concealer and foundation that would help to combat this issue? I currently use MaryKay Concealer in Ivory 2 (small black squeezable tube) and Covergirl Tru Blend in L1. Any advise is greatly appreciated, thank you!
