IVE TRIED EVERYTHING! My skin is combination oily but for winter Iam combo/dry. I have serious dark spots, dullnes, and uneven skintone as well as sensitive skin, because every time I use a new product on my face I immediately begin to break out. The beginning of this year is when I began to get a little more serious about my skincare. The skincare specialist that I go to for laser hair removal(on my face), recommends that I come in and get glycolic peel treatments done which I will consider because at this point I think I need to begin implementing more exfoliatiors, peels and products that penetrate the deeper layers of my skin. Products that you recommend would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
I need to find a great toner. My skin is very easy going.... I recently found out from an aesthetician (sp?) that I've been really going overboard with the exfoliating products including daily use of retinol, benzoyl peroxide scrub, salicylic acid and a pore cleansing astringent. She said most people would come in all red and blotchy with my routine! She also said I may be creating my own problem of OIL PRODUCTION.... she said my skin may be OVERCOMPENSATING. Anyhow, she is recommending that I lay off some of the heavier things for a while and I need a recommendation for a NEUTRAL TONER (not too harsh) that will help MINIMIZE OIL PRODUCTION Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!.
The plus side is I don't look 36 but the downside is as a professional I need products but I've tried just about every primer and oil mattifier out there. I also have done all the suggested changes to my skin care routine. I'm an accountant and HR representative always on the go so I can't stop to keep reapplying. Blotting just takes the makeup off and eventually I have uneven skin with makeup in some areas and other areas where it looks smudged. I have spent about $1500 overall in products that are supposed to clear up oil and keep my skin matted but that has yet to happen. PLEASE HELP!
*I realize there has been much talk about different eye creams targeting different concerns. However, I stumbled upon this cream and well I'm leary of any product that appears to "do it all". It's a new product w/ only 8 reviews, so there;s not much to go on and I don't know much about this brand. Is this too good to be true? It's claim is that it will: 1.Fight under eye circles (I have them) 2.Puffiness 3. Smooth fine lines and wrinkles 4.And boost radiance. Thoughts about this...as I have aged I do notice some puffiness under my eyes and darker circles. I'm attaching a picture of me with no makeup on at all for reference. Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvenating Eye Cream. It's an exclusive as well. TY. ~KAM

Hi guys, me again!!! As I said in another post, my first bridal trial didn't go well, so I booked another one, with a different MUA. I loved the final look, but I guess in the second trial I would ask to not underline the entire eye, I think that maybe half of it. I kind of think is a little too much the whole undereye, it makes me look a little bit tired, doesn't it? What do you think? And I would like a little more coverage in the skin, if possible. Here are the photos, let me know what you think, any advice is welcome! Thank you so much!!
Is Sephora going to restock the meteorites (Perles d'Etoiles) & lipstick (Rouge G Lipstick in 920 Rouge Parade)? Also, I wasn't sure exactly where to post this so, please feel free to move my question to the appropriate board. Thanks!
I have combination-oily tzone skin that is breaking out and has a lot of discoloration. My dermatologist suggested that I use non-acne products. I would like to go natural so I was looking at Caudalie, Boscia, and Ole Henriksen. Which of the lines would be best for my skin type?
Hi ! I am looking for GOOD skin care products for my light-medium combination skin. I have a high tendency to get acne on my face, like a few pimples at the same time (gross, I know ! lol) And I react easily to products. If my face doesn't like a new product, I get acne almost overnight. Oh and my cheeks present signs of rosacea in winter (I live in Canada and we do get extreme cold winters). I would love to find, ONCE AND FOR ALL, products that actually work. So far, I like the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, it works pretty well on me. But I need a toner, a serum and a night cream doesn't have to be the same brand . I tried the Clinique toner for oily/combination skin, what a disaster, felt like my face was on fire !!! I also tried Michael Todd products, didn't do anything for me. Thanks for your help!!!
Hello! I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a powder to set under eye concealer? I was hoping to get one that would lighten the under eye area to brighten under my eye. I wanted one separate to my over all face setter. Any suggestions would be great! thanks in advance!
I need help! I love makeup so much, but I've started only wearing it to parties and on the weekend because I don't have a fast makeup routine for when I roll out of beds on the week days and have to make it to work in 20 minutes. I want to look made up, but in the morning I just don't have time for my gel pot eyeliner, foundation, eyeshadow, etc. routine! I need something that will make me look non-zombie (which is what I look like totally without makeup) that I can do in 5 minutes. Does anybody have any good suggestions for products? I think I need a BB cream or tinted moisterizer, quick lip balm/stain that I can swipe on and has pretty color, and eyeliner that doesn't need to be applied with a brush, but will stay all day. I'm from the Indain subcontinent, so my complexion is olive, black hair, brown eyes. Thanks so much!!!
I used to use the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer....I loved it, but the second, and third time I ordered it, it arrive separated, and I couldn't get it to blend back together. In hindsight, I should have returned it, but didn't. Needless to say, it didn't work. So I switched to Smash box photo finish, and I hate it too I feel like this one makes my foundation slide right off my face! I need some suggestions, as I have combo, acne prone skin.

Hello fellow beauty lovers! I am looking into purchasing the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer and can't figure out if I would be considered Light or Neutral Medium... I currently use Urban Decay Naked Foundation in 3.5 Thanks!
What is the best curling iron and products to use for extremely think wavy hair that refuses to hold a curl? I have tried everything! The only thing that can somewhat curl my hair is a curling wand but I don't like the type of curl it produces.
Hello fellow beauty lovers! I am looking for a makeup brush travel bag that I can use for when I travel that also won't damage my brushes... I have only been able to find the bags that come with brushes (which I don't need) and would just like the bag. And I don't have THAT many brushes (I have about 10-ish), so I would need something that holds a majority of that and possibly one that hold a little more just in case. I also don't want to spend too much for it, but I want something of really good quality that's not going to start breaking after a few uses. It's gotta be able to lee up with me Thanks!
I am color matched for LM Tinted Moisturizer color "Nude". But I also want a powder foundation. If I wanted to purchased the LM Smooth Finish Foundation Powder, what color would that correspond to? Thanks!
I posted a question about this problem before. My makeup hasn't been setting on my skin lately. At first it was only a problem on my nose, and it would look dry and blotchy. Since then, I have noticed under my eye/cheek region has been very blotchy looking as well. I moisturize my skin every morning and night with a Cetaphil moisturizer. I've tried using Urban Decay's Complexion Primer Potion and I've used many different brand foundations to try to find the problem. Nothing has really changed. I went to a local Sephora and talked to a skin expert about the problem. She gave me a sample of Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate & Perricone's Blue Plasma. Neither of those seemed to work. My makeup just looks patchy and splotchy on my face. Since getting older, I have found myself to have drier skin. I have never had this problem before and have been able to use any foundations or primers without any problem. Has anyone had this problem or have a suggestion to the next step I should take in treating this problem?
