I am looking for a peachy pink lip color.
I am very picky about lip colors and lipstick textures. What I want is a beautiful lip balm in a peachy pink color. Not too dark , but not too light  either. I could really use some ideas. Thank you for your time.

Hi! Try Urban Decay super saturated lip pencil in the color "Naked." Peachy pink, very wearable, I get compliments many of the times I wear it. see post

Hi!, I am a 15 year old with a light skin tone but, since it is summer, I can't chose between the light or medium options for the benefit foundation set.

How do you build up Dior Forever liquid foundation to full coverage?
I have Dior's Forever liquid foundation, which is supposed to be buildable to full coverage, but I can't seem to get it past light coverage. I use a sponge, and don't want to switch to a brush or use my fingers. Am I supposed to wait for a layer to dry, then reapply? If so, how long does this foundation take to dry in order to apply another layer?    I really like this foundation, but I'm used to wearing foundations that require only one application. What is the best way to get this foundation to its fullest coverage?   Thank you!

You are right. For buildable coverage you let the first layer dry before applying second one. Drying time pretty much depend on your skin as well as how thick the first ... see post
Best moisturizer for dry irritated flakes on oily skin before applying foundation?
Hi, I have predominately oily skin (T-zone) but numerous dry, flaky, and irritated patches from acne medication and healing acne, especially around my mouth. I use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion before I apply liquid foundation and concealer, but I'm wondering if there is something better out there to reduce the flakiness.    Cerave irritates my skin further, and I can't exfoliate much due to the already irritated skin. I'm happy with the foundation and concealer, it's just the moisturizer I think I can improve on.   Thank you!

What kind of makeup does she have on that makes her eyes so big?
Watch the first few seconds of the clip and then fastforward to the last few seconds. Notice one half the face is without makeup and then compare the eye size. I think it's heavy eyeliner coupled with heavy eye ink liner.  I just can't get how she made her pupil look so big too.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOrTQ9TU-d8

Sunday Riley/Drunk Elephant?
Is it just my computer or are both Sunday Riley and Drunk Elephant not on the Sephora website anymore? I've checked the brands list and can't find either brand on it, and I've searched as well and nothing comes up. I was just looking at these yesterday, and I've restarted my computer a few times but still nothing. I may just cry if this is widespread!

Good Smudge-proof Mascaras suggestions needed please!
Hi there! I was wondering if anyone knew of any good smudge-proof mascaras that holds a curl well and lengthens and volumises decently?   I've tried a few waterproof mascaras and they don't work any better than normal mascaras for me; and I'm also not too comfortable using tube mascaras (i.e. Blinc ones)   If anyone knows any good ones that'll be great, drugstore or high-end I don't mind. I always get black smudges under my eyes and it's so frustrating.   Thank you!!
