Lines under my eyes more prevalent after switching to Sephora
I am new to sephora and just had a makeover done.  I purchased the Jeil Hourlgass Primer, YSL Touche Eclat Concealer, Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, Givenchy Photo Perfection Foundation, Sephora Micro Smooth Powder and Nars Issist Highlight Pallete.  All of these products were used on me during my make over and at the time I loved it.  After using for a month now, I am noticing that the lines under my eyes are more prevalent than before.  So, I have quit using the Brightening Powder and Sephora Powder and that has helped some.  I was also wondering if maybe the illuminiation in the highlighting pallet might be causing the lines to show up more.  Do you have any suggestions on what I shoud do diffrent to help with this problem?  Yes, I do have lines but they were not as noticble before I switched makeup.

Dry and Flaky skin
Hello! My skin is really dry and flaky so when I put on concealer and/or foundation, it doesn't cover up, it just defines the dry skin. Any suggestions?

Bad breakouts lately...help!
I have very oily acne prone skin and I have been breaking out pretty bad recently on my cheeks, chin, and along my jawline. I'm not sure if it's just 1 product that's breaking me out or my whole routine.  I'm currently using in the morning: first aid beauty facial cleanser, clean&clear essentials deep cleaning toner for sensitive skin, and the murad oil control mattifier. In the evening: same cleanser and toner, loreal revitalift serum, josie maran argan oil light, and twice a week I use the dr. jart pore medic @ home peel, and benzoyl peroxide as a spot treatment when needed The breakouts are pretty large and not just 1 or 2 at a time but several, I haven't had a breakout like this in a long time...so frustrating! Anyway are there other products I should try instead? I want to use gentle products and products that won't cause my oily skin to overreact. I would also like to incorporate as much drugstore products as possible! Thank you all!

Hello! Recently, my foundation has not been looking its best. I have acne-prone, combination oily skin and I use the clinique acne solutions makeup with the hourglass mineral veil primer. But my foundation has been getting cakey and clinging to dry patches.

How do I choose a foundation??
Hi everyone!   I actually have two questions. I'm looking into purchasing a foundation. I have some acne scars I want to cover, in addition to covering (and possibly treating) new breakouts.    How do I go about picking the right color foundation for me? I know sephora has their Pantone thing but it seems a bit dark in the store, so I don't know if I'd get accurate results.   Secondly, should I be purchasing a concealer to apply before foundation, or would foundation typically be enough?

Getting teeth whitened. Any suggestions?
OK, so I bit the bullet (no pun intended) and made an appointment at my dentist to get my teeth professionally whitened. Anyone have any words of wisdom on preparation, longevity, whitening I can expect, etc? I've questioned my dentist bunches of times (this is not something I just jumped into), but I'd really like some feedback from people who've had it done. I'm looking forward to this, but I'm a little anxious, too!

Having a hard time deciding if I'm warm or cool.
I use Kat Von D' Lock-It Tattoo foundation in Medium 54 which is a good match for me.  54 is described as being for medium complexions w/ yellow-beige undertones.  Prior to finding my match, I bought Medium 53 (doesnt give any info other then being medium) and it was very very yellow on me.  So two questions:    (1) Does this information tell you that I'm warm or cool? (2) What shade would one mix with a foundation that is too yellow?   I hate to throw it away as it's pricey.   Thank you for your time.  Any advise given will be greatly appreciated.

How to get flawless looking skin?
My skin looks fairly bad with foundation up close. I have dry, dehydrated skin that's slightly red. Foundation makes it look really dry and flaky. I can't wear blush because it just blends in with my red skin. Is there anything that I can do or buy that will make it looks flawless in a week. Doesn't have to be natural, I just want my skin to look good with foundation on. I'm fine with getting products for the long term but I'd like some stuff that will make my makeup sit right on my skin and look flawless before I go back to school.

Is Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade actually Waterproof ?
Hi ! I am wondering if the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade is actually waterproof. Meaning, it'll stay on when I'm swimming in chlorine water. I have heard that the product is very versatile.

Eye moisturizer
Hi all, I am looking for an eye-area moisturizer and was hoping I could get some great recommendations here.     I don't suffer from puffy eyes or dark circles.  My under-eye area is dry but my lids are oily, and I prefer something as natural as possible or atleast free of parabens, etc.  I used Boscia eye cream awhile back, but I ended up getting some of those little white bumps so discontinued use.   I am not sure if I need an anti-aging cream or not? I am 33, and I have one thin wrinkle on my left eye that gets more noticeable as the day goes on, and some other lines when I smile.   I don't have a preference for day or evening, but if day I would prefer something with SPF.  I should be wearing stuff with spf more than I do...   Thanks!
