Hi, Okay so im fairly new to wearing makeup and just bought myself the smashbox bb tinted moisturizer although when I applied it my skin looked really dry and it didn't set in properly im not using any primer, but was wondering what can I do to make it look smoother and also wether I can use my own moisturizer before I use the tinted moisturizer.. im thinking it may help? or is it a bad idea
Recently i decided to change my powder and i tried diorskin forever compact.I don't use heavy foundation only a bb cream and a powder i also have oily acne prone skin.The powder was pretty good but i think after a few hours it made my skin a bit oily and also it is very pricey for me.Could anyone recommend a powder for full coverage for oily type skin and with less money THANK YOU
I'm bummed...I went off of birth control a few months ago (due to terrible side effects), and now my hormonal acne is raging! my doctor is putting me back on Retin A. The last time I used it, I had a really hard time managing the peeling. I had to stop taking it because it really got out of control. So...any suggestions for what I can do this time around to minimize the nasty flaking? are there any moisturizers that are particularly effective? Would an oil help (or would it counteract the purpose of the medication?)
I am considering trying the Philosophy line. I am 51 years old and have combination skin and no deep wrinkles yet. I tend to get little blocked pores on my forehead so have to stick with a moisturizer than is non-comedogenic. I have looked at all of the information written about Philosophy and dont' see anything stating whether or not it is. Should I assume this means the products are not? Thanks
I am looking for new products to help fade my acne scars. On my hunt for new product i found the Lemon Trip Flash Peel. Has anybody tried it or this kit that can tell me if its worth the money or if its gonna help with my scars. This set contains: - 0.5 oz Sheer Transformation™ - 0.5 oz Lemon Strip Flash Peel - 0.5 oz Truth Serum™ Collagen Booster - 1.5 oz African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser™ - 0.5 oz Pure Truth™ Youth Activating Oil
I am wondering how the results could possibly give me an accurate match. A foundation the color of my freckles would be just awful and one the color of my unfreckled skin would be far too pale. I prefer my foundation to get rid of any ruddiness and not cover but rather enhance. Should I even bother going to get the color IQ done?
I have a very oily t-zone and sometimes acne prone skin. I use the clinique 3-step process and have been using their acne solutions foundation but lately i've realized that by the end of my school day (around 1pm) my makeup looks like its melting and i am constantly dabbing my face because it looks like i am sweating but i'm not. I don't know if this is due to my makeup or due to the fact that i don't use primer or a setting spray. What do you recommend I do?
Can you recommend a product for all over face that produces a golden shimmer (microfine glitter) that would look good with a tan? I am looking at some luminizers, but reviews say the effect is more silvery or glowing instead of sparkly. Again, I prefer a powder that is not actually a bronzer so that I cam wear it over bronzer or wear it even if I don't have a tan. Thank you
Good Day! I need some help/advice on a new face wash. Currently stocked in my bathroom is Origins Checks and Balances face wash, but I am finding it a bit harsh on my dry weather confused skin. Some of the best sellers/top rated washers are the Josie Argan Cleansing Oil and the Fresh Soy face cleanser and I just need some input on what I should get to replace my origins for the rainy,cold yet sunny at times, and dry weather we are having. I have really combo skin, really oily Tzone, but DRY flakey cheeks. I've never used any type of oil for my face except for a waterproof eye makeup remover, but I am extremely open to try it. My only skin concerns I have is my combo issue, occasional breakout(guilty of not washing my foundation brush for almost a month. lesson learned. laziness=big pimples that scars) and blackheads. I have tried Philosophy,Clinque, FAB, Bliss and Boscia, but they are just not for me.
Hi, I need a good recommendation for a powder highlighter. I have only used cream or stick highlighter/luminizers, and need to switch to a powder form. I use quite a bit of foundation and concealer to achieve "perfect" skin and it seems like my current highlighters don't layer well over foundations. I have medium-to-light skin that is yellow/olive toned I'd like something that is slightly shimmery. Thank you!
Hi everyone, I recently bought a BITE lipstick in the colour Quinta. It is a beautiful shade on me and I love how pigmented the lipstick is. It is the first lipstick I have bought and it was recommended to me by a Sephora associate. In the past I have bought Buxom lip creams, Sugar balms and some other glosses, but I wanted to dive into buying a lipstick I've worn the lipstick a few times and I have to say I'm disappointed The lipstick is really sinking into my lips (into the lines on my lips) and showing any small flakes I might have. It is winter and I live in Ottawa, Canada (god it has been so cold here this winter!), so it may be possible that my lips are a little bit dry, but it isn't anything out of the ordinary, they aren't chapped. I also put on Smith's Rosebud Salve before bed to keep them moisturized. I see that the reviews for BITE lipsticks are really positive, but I'm wondering if this is a problem I'm having with the lipstick itself or a lip problem. Is it common for all lipsticks to sink into lip lines? Is there any sort of other prep I should be doing before applying the lipstick? Any advice would be appreciated as I'm thinking of taking the lipstick back for something that may be a bit more moisturizing. Thanks
My beloved Stila is not so chemical safe and I'm now worried about my MUFE foundation and slowly but surely switching everything over to be safer. Tarte is the closest that matches my skin tone (deathly pallor) but really seems to be just slightly too orange on my skin after an hour or so.
I currently use Urban Decay Buck to fill in my eyebrow, I wonder what color am I in the ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Brow Powder Duo? I have well filled in brows but my hair color is a warm medium brown.I don't know if I should get the ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Brow Powder Duo or the ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Brow Wiz. Which stays on longer, I usually have 12+ hour days.

My prom is about a month away, and I want to create those beautiful, vintage finger waves. I have a good amount of experience with vintage hairstyles (mostly 1950's and 1960's dos) but I've never worked with gel or creme, and I need to use some sort of product to hold my wet hair in place or else it just won't turn out right. I have, as my Granny says, "medium-thick hair and a lot of it!" It's a little past my chin in length and stacked in the back with side swept bangs that resemble tapered layers more than bangs (the shortest layer falls just below my cheekbone when blown dry correctly). My hair is straight with a natural flip at the bottom and is silky smooth and shiny. (I know all these different factors can help determine what products would work best for me or I wouldn't waste your time on it, I promise.) Basically, I just need to know what you amazing beauty experts would suggest to hold finger waves in place in my hair. I'm trusting you with my life!
Did anyone else take advantage of the sale on one of the Sephora Prestige Luxe Brush Sets? I've had a couple brushes die on me recently and figured these would be a good filler until I had the funds to buy my favourites again (Marc Jacobs No. 12 for example). Does anyone know how these brushes stand against other quality brushes? And what's the difference in the two different prestige luxe sets? I find it frustrating that once something is out of stock, I can't go back to the product page to see comments or info on it.
