What is your favorite eye makeup remover?
I have used Lancome's Bi Facial with reasonably good results, but I was hoping I could find something that removed the mascara with fewer swipes (hoping to minimize damage to the eye area).  I tried MUFE Sens Eyes and it really burned the skin around my eyes, which was a disappointment, since the cream seemed to be more effective than the liquid formulas I've been using.  I want something without mineral oil as I have had problems with that before.  Any suggestions?

Paula's Choice earth source gel cleanser. I always double cleanse and a tiny amount of it takes everything off. see post

Having lots of trouble with my skin/makeup
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?

I'm not sure what colour to get!
Hey guys! I've gone in to Sephora multiple times to get colour matched, but every time I go, they match me with a colour that makes me look orange. I'm not sure if it's the lighting in the stores, or if my skin is a stranger colour(?). I have yellow undertones (I believe), and I am Korean. I'm not sure what colour to use in any brand because they never match. I'm a lot tanner than Koreans usually are, but since it's nearing winter, I'm getting paler again and I don't know what colour to get in foundation and concealer. Help?

An ideal daily skincare routine combination skin?
I really need a good skincare routine. I don't know what's ideal to do everyday, from waking up to going to sleep. My skin is very mixed. I would like to know what I should be using on my skin f.ex. moisturising, cleaning, oils and other things... I would also like to know the same about makeup. Should I use a primer everyday, bb cream, cc cream or what? I am very confused. I would love to get some answers

Bronzer/Contour for yellow-toned skin
Hey!   I was just wondering if anyone had recommendations for a bronzer that could be used also as a contour for yellow-toned skin? I have light skin, and in summer, light-medium skin.    I have tried the NARS Laguna Bronzer, however, I can't really see much difference with it, because it's rather light. I've also tried The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 2, but that is waaay too pink, and looks dirty and orange.   Thanks everyone! I appreciate it!

Mid-50s eye makeup update ideas
I need advice for eye makeup now that I'm in my mid-50s.  My  eyelids are crepey and droopy.  I also have very small, downturned eyes.  My coloring is starting to washout, and my old, reliable makeup colors and looks are not working any more.  I have dark blonde hair with copper-ish lowlights.  I have a good skincare regimen, what I need is recommendations for colors/products for eye make up.  What colors?  What kind of eyeliner (if any) is best on my crepey, small lids?

Difference between Cameo and Medium Beige in Dior foundation?
Hello! I have Dior Forever Compact Powder foundation, which I love, in Cameo but it's a tad too light. Is Medium Beige a lot darker? My undertone is cool/neutral. When I tried Rosy Beige in the store it was too dark and reddish, and Light Beige was way too light. Not sure what peachy undertones are, but I'm guessing the Peach shade would be too orange on me.

Hellooo,   I have the Mac Pro Longwear Makeup foundation in the Shade NW15 and I read about the undertones, since I wanted to change to Nars Sheer Glow.  Now I actually have a yellow undertone but everyone says NW15 has a pink undertone.   I looked up at foundation matrix pages to see which shade from Nars Sheer Glow would fit and it says Mont Blanc which is a foundation with a pink undertone.   The mac foundation fits perfectly...I'm confused   P.s it says that the colour of your veins helps...well mine have more of a greenish colour   thanks for the help

Broken powder foundation fixes
Hi all, I dropped my compact at work, and unfortunately my MUFE powder foundation broke. It's usable, but it's a little messy and very annoying, especially since I use it at work where I don't really want to make that mess. I read past posts about using alcohol to fix broken powder products, and understand that theory, but I wanted to know what the lovelies on BT thought. Does anyone have any other suggestions, for fixing it, or even for the usage of a broken powder?
