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!
I am 30 years old and I have normal to dry skin. I never had acne throughout my teen years but since hitting my mid 20's, my skin has been a mess. I have multiple cystic acne bumps on my cheeks, hairline, and chin at all times and I cannot seem to be able to find a routine that consistently helps with this. I used Create (a benzoperoxide and tea tree oil mix) for a period of time and this reduced my acne but seems to have stopped working. I feel like I have tried everything... Glycolic Acid Serum and Moisturizer, Good Genes, Drunk Elephant Framboise Serum, etc, etc. I am getting married in a year and would like to have nice, clear skin for my big day. Please help me find a good gentle routine that would help!!! I'm desperate...
Hello, I am the shade Y215 in Makeup Forever's Water Blend Face and Body Foundation. I am wanting to purchase Makeup Forever's Ultra HD foundation and Too Faced's Born This Way foundation. I do not have a Sephora near me and I was hoping someone could help. I have an olive/yellow undertone and I am kind of on the pale side right now.
hello. so i recently bought the complexion rescue from bare minerals. i love that it has SPF, minerals and a light coverage. Theres simply one downfall, it makes my face skinny and almost kinda oily. is there a good alternative with all the same benefits i should try? thanks!
Do you set your concealer before or after applying your powder foundation? I recently bought Laura Mercier's Translucent Setting Powder, but I'm not sure if I should use it before of after applying my bare minerals bare pro pressed powder foundation.
Hi, my face breaks out in red itchy patches and hives whenever I use face powders, bronzers, and blush that contain talc. For some reason I'm okay with talc when it's in liquid foundation, though. But if my face isn't completely covered in foundation, whatever skin is exposed when I apply bronzer all over will turn red and itchy, even up into my hairline. Cover FX matte setting powder has been a life saver for me as it is talc and paraben-free. I see they make a bronzer too, so I should give that a try, as my Tarte Amazonian Clay bronzer and Benefit Hoola bronzer make me itchy. Seems to be getting worse lately, maybe it's the dry winter air that causes my skin to be extra irritated and sensitive. My question is, besides Cover FX, what other brands make talc-free products? "talc-free" isn't a filter that comes up whenever I search on the Sephora site Thanks a lot
Sorry new to chat... Now that I have how to post properly... I've been using immaculate foundation from hourglass and I love it... I am almost out... I went online everywhere to find it in shell and it's sold out everywhere and I mean everywhere... On this site... On their site... I am bummed... And suggestions? Another brand, but similar? I'm open... my skin really reacts nicely to hourglass... it's just frustrating...Thanks so much...
So for the past year, my mother has been really focused on her under eyes. She's super conscious of how dark they are, and has been trying a variety of different under eye serums. Last year, for Christmas, I even got her the IT Cosmetics Bye-Bye Under eye concealer that she wanted, but she sad it dried out the skin under her eyes. Is there any suggestions for an under eye serum that would help (preferably in the $60 or less category)? She's around 56 and has sensitive skin.
I've been using Clinique Even Better in both Ivory and Neutral for a long while, however both shades have their respective issues. I have an olive complexion, and while the Neutral matches my skin when tanned in summer, it does not make for a good year-long foundation. The ivory was suggested to me several times over, however it turns a distinct and deep orange when in contact with my skin. I am half native-american/caucasian and have a lighter olive complexion, with combination skin (with dry and oily areas), mild acne/blackhead inflammation, and dark anemic circles around my eyes. I am seeking a foundation, concealer, and matte powder (sealing powder?) that matches better with my skin tone. I am desperately seeking advice. Thank you.
I currently wear a 3.25 to a 3.5 in UD Naked Skin Weightless Foundation. The 3.25 will be too light once winter is over. I have cool skin undertones. What shade should I wear in Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation?
What's the difference between cream and lotion for your hands? I am looking for something that isn't greasy and keep hands healthy looking. My main issue is my nails/skin around them. Also is there any night time treatment?
Hey y'all, I've had acne since I was a teen and am still struggling with it as a 26-year old. I used to be on topical medications but switched to a pill called spironolactone a little less than a year ago. It's been a life saver and I've been able to stop using my prescription topical creams. However, because spiro cleared up my skin tremendously and because I am also a Sephora employee, I've been experimenting with new skincare. I recently broke out horribly after using a combination of the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel and Josie Maran's spf 47 moisturizer (I used Ole's night treatment for almost three weeks without breakouts until I incorporated Josie's sunscreen, which broke me out immediately). I've since stopped using both because my skin was aggravated and dry, on top of breaking out. Since I've stopped using these two products, I incorporated Sunday Riley's UFO oil into my night routine. I love that this doesn't dry my skin out and has a BHA. I've been using this for roughly 5 nights and while my acne is beginning to get less and less, I still have a few new pimples that pop up every other day or so. Here is my current routine: AM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser -First Aid Beauty Vitamin Mist as a toner -Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter *days without makeup I use Supergoop's Mineral Sunscreen in place of the argan face butter, otherwise I use a BB cream w/spf as my "foundation" PM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser (sometimes I use First Aid Beauty's Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser if breakouts are horrible) - Sunday Riley U.F.O. oil - Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter My skin is combination oily with most oil in the t-zone and cheeks and dryness where my acne occurs which is along my jawline, lower cheeks, and neck. I am also sensitive. I am hoping for a recommendation on a potentially new or improved skincare routine based on these concerns. My biggest concerns are acne and small white bumps of texture. Otherwise, my skin is fortunately pit-free as I never picked my acne too much! I do also prefer a cruelty-free skincare routine <3

So, I purchased the coverfx cream foundation in G60. I found it a tad too yellow. But I'm worried that the neutral series will be too pink! Do any of you ladies have ant experience with this foundation and their range of shades? I am 6.5/7.5 shade in armani luminous silk, syracuse in nars, and in mac nc40. depending on the brand and foundation i go with either warm undertones, golden, olive, and sometimes neutral. So it can be difficult for me.

I am looking for a really good primer for oily, acne prone skin and large pores, it needs to hide pores and make skin flawless. Also information on a pairing concealer and setting powder would be wonderful. I have tried a few and I haven't liked any.. Tried Smashbox and most recently clinique superprimer. it is awful so sad about that
Hello, I want to get my friend the Urban Decay Naked Palette as she has talked about it incessantly. I want to surprise her and I'm a guy who knows next to nothing about makeup. I tried doing my own research on whether I should get Naked 1, 2 or 3 but it is a bit confusing. I do know she recently got a Mac concealer that is NW25 which I Googled and it says it is Neutral-Warm; she also got foundation that is N5 from Mac. Does that mean Naked 3 will work for her well? It's her birthday and I want to get the right one. Thank you for your help!
