Sensitive acne prone skin with mild Rosacea
  My skin is quite sensitive and acne prone.  I don't have many breakouts because I avoid products that contain oil.  I also have mild rosacea on my cheeks.  I recently purchased and used origins night a mins oil free moisturizer and my skin reacted to it very badly.  It looks like I have a rash all over my cheeks and my skin got very itchy when I used it. I really need to find nighttime products that have benefits like anti aging and skin tone correcting in them but am having a very hard time.  It seems I react to natural products but I don't want to use anything too full of chemicals.  I am close to 30 and my skin hasn't been as bad as it is now since I was in high school.  Please help me!

Tired of the Q-Tips
I use Trish McEvoy eyeliner (long wearing gel liner) on my top lids..in the middle of my lashes. For some reason, an hour later I have black circles under my eyes and have to carry Q-Tips around with me. I have tried a NARS pencil liner as well and it does the same thing. Could it be the oil content of my skin? It doesn't seem to make sense :-/

Can I change a review? I gave Vice 3 a 4 but wish I'd done 5 (it's a 4.5).
Can we somehow change a review? We used to be able to write more than one but now that doesn't seem to work anymore (so we could average them). 4 is too low…but I just decided at the last moment that 5 was too high and went with 4.

What color for bare minerals 2Y05
I match perfectly with BareMineral Bareskin #3 Linen and Cover FX 30 but when i looked for a pick for baremineral original foundation powder it was Medium Beige here. When I went to the bare mineral site it was Fairly Light. I know my skin is neutral more then yellow from all the past foundations I've tried. I was just wondering if I should purchase the Medium Beige this site picked for me or the Fairly Light picked by BareMinerals site?

Primer & Foundation Problems
I have oily, acne-prone skin so I like to use long-lasting, fuller coverage foundations. But, with my oily skin, the foundation will not stick. I apply a primer (Tarte Poreless primer) and let it dry or set. I then proceed to use my foundation (whether it be Estee Lauder Double Wear, Makeup Forever Matte Velvet +, or Urban Decay Naked Skin). Sometimes it will stick but if I touch it again if I am applying a concealer on top or even powder, it will totally lift off the skin and I have to start all over. It is so frustrating. I live a few hours away from any sephora so I can't physically go and talk to somebody so I need help here.  I use Clean & Clear Dual Action moisturizer (oil free) if you are wondering.    Is there any primer that could work with these kinds of foundations? Or is there anything else that you would recommend?

my outer lashes curl inward- how to get them aimed the right direction?
My upper lashes are plenty long, but they want to curl upward and point inward, instead of outward, at the outer edge of my lid.  I'm searching for tips to get them pointing the right way.  I can "tease" them out with the pointed end of the mascara wand, but then the mascara's too clumpy.  I think I should get them pointed the right direction first, and THEN deal with the mascara, but how?  I've tried a spoolie (wet and dry) but they don't stay pointed out.  Thanks.

Best brush to apply powder highlighter? help!
I just bought the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Highlighter and I'm in love with the texture and the fact that it's not glitter explosion! But: I don't have a brush that will apply it right. All the brushes I own don't pick up the product or apply the product the way a highlighter should. So tell me what brush I should use! And I am open to all brands not just sephora brand! Thanks so much in advance

Terrible skin at a young age
My skin is my biggest concern for a while now, but after trying a lot of different products by myself I've decided to seek help from an expert. I live in a small middle of nowhere town so I'm not close to any dermatologist. I hope to get help online though.   I'm 15 years old, but I already have wrinkles on my forehead and slightly visible lines around my eyes. Any anti wrinkle product that's effective? If the ones I have won't disappear I would just like to know if there are any products that would prevent new wrinkles. Next concern is that I have dark circles under my eyes, concealing is not helping just making it worse, is there any product/ I've heard that oils help/ that would make them a bit less dark? Then, I'm oily in the T zone and I always have at least one pimple on my face in that area and blackheads. The rest of my face is normal, not dry but not oily. Should I care differently for one area than the other? I have no idea how to choose a proper skin care.  Discoloration is another thing. I no longer pick my pimples, but I did and they left marks, discoloration or scars that are like these little holes. Is there any way I could deal with that? I've thought about getting laser treatment for it after I'm no longer a teenager, but is there any product? I also have marks on my back from acne on my back, so it would be great if I could use it for that too. Then I have broken vessels or what to call it around my mouth and the lower part of my cheeks. I noticed them a few years back but it's possible I had them before that, I don't know what caused them and when they appeared. Again, will only laser help or is there anything else? I haven't been using anything on my face, washing it with water sometimes and putting olive oil on it which left the normal part of my face nicely moisturized and healthy, but didn't help the rest. Is it normal to have so many things wrong with my skin? Is there any hope for me? What should I use/ do? Thank you!!

Foundation for a light to medium skin with yellow undertones/Armani Maestro in 5.5
Hi girls! I was looking for the best foundation ever at Sephora and the girl who helped me out recommended the Armani Maestro Foundation in 5.25. I guess I have a light to medium skin with yellow undertones, but still haven't figured out how this really works I usually wear during winter MUFE in 127/140 and 160 during summer (also Teint Jolie by YSL in Foncè). I'm afraid the 5.25 shade would be too dark for me during winter and, being its price quite expensive I wanted to be completely sure about it. I totally trust you experts, can't wait to have your suggestions about the perfect foundation for me!

My skin is a disaster. Help!!
For nearly a year now, my skin has transformed into what I call an awful mask. I have red bumps (not pimples) throughout my face, dry patches that even pure coconut oil won't help. My fine lines have definitely gotten a bit worse and I just have a rough, uneven texture with enlarged pored and a loss of elasticity. My chin is often oily though and I get breakouts a lot in that area. I feel like I don't even know which problems to start with and products i used in the past that are no longer working. My skin is also very fair and sensitive. I'm getting anxiety due to how bad my skin is and I really just need advice on what products will help. I'm also on a bit of a budget. Thanks for reading, I hope to hear back soon. (SN: I'm 26 years old).

Which Brush is the best?
Hi there, so I went into my local store and had to trade out my Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation for a darker shade, and when the Beauty Advisor applied the foundation to my face, I loved the brush she was using, but failed to ask her which one it was so I could purchase it.

Applying My Foundation
Hello my fellow makeup lovers! First, Happy Valentine's Day to you all!! <3 OK, I need help. I have red acne marks, that are slowly fading, but for the time being I am trying to make do. Anyway, I just got Tarte's amazonian clay foundation, which I like a lot! I have combo skin, and used to always use powders, so I am fairly new to this whole liquid foundation thang. I was using a stippling brush, but I didn't love it I need a lot of coverage so because I use a good amount of foundation...It doesn't look "cakey" but it looks like I have a lot of makeup on...Sooo, with all this Beauty Blender craZe goin on..I wanted to try so bad! Unfortunately, Sephora only had the The sculptor makeup sponge in the store.. it's ok...I do like it better than the stippling brush, but it soaks in so much of my foundation, and I am wasting my precious Tarte Amazonian Clay! So, my question to the experts is, Should I just go ahead and buy the orginal beauty blender...OR is there a fabulous brush out there I need to buy. I've seen tutorials on youtube, of the beauty blender, and it looks amazing. BUT, I need to remember I have something I am trying to cover, so please keep that in mind...I use more foundation than I would like, but I feel like I have no choice. I use MUFE green primer, btw. Thanks! xo
