i think the sun safety kits were out the first week of May in 2014, so hoping that means that we have less than a month til they are out in 2015. Any word on a release date yet? I love the sun safety kits!!
Is foundation supposed to look "flawless" close up? I use a pressed powder foundation from MAC, as with liquid (such as tarte Amazonian clay) I begin to get oily. I've applied with both brushes and the beauty blender. Somehow, it looks *great* at a distance, but when I lean in to look closer at the mirror, like when I'm applying eyeliner, it looks horrible. Usually I wouldn't mind, but when I'm talking to people, I wonder whether they're at a distance to see the calmness of my makeup. I can't imagine that I'm "applying it wrong". I literally take the beauty blender, swirl it around in the compact, and press it into my face. And this is after using the green smashbox photo finish primer. Oh - and I've also tried RCMA. FORGET IT! That stuff is even worse! My whole face is tiny little flakes in no time. Thanks.
I've been using Estee Lauder eye shadow primer for the past several years and really love it, but unfortunately, I think it's been discontinued because I'm having trouble finding it. Are there any other great eye shadow primers out there that are good for oily eyelids? I'm interested in a product that will help my eye shadow last all day. Thank you, beauties! Love, Daskala
I need advice on how to get "raccoon eyes". I use primer, powder, a pencil liner covered with powdered eyeshadow the same color. I use a regular mascara and put a coat of waterproof mascara over that. Don't know what else to do. Help!

Hello everyone My senior prom is on Friday, and I need a photo friendly foundation to wear. (Im terrified of having a white cast in photos...)I'd prefer to stay away from matte foundations and go more for dewy since I wanna look glowy lol and plus, I have dry skin. I'd also need medium to full coverage, because I have dark marks from acne. Any suggestions? I'm thinking about asking for samples just for prom because I don't have the money to spend on foundation right now. Thank you! P.s. if you guys have any dewy makeup routine tips, let me know please
I would like to purchase the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and the Creamy Concealer, but I do not know what shades I should purchase. However, I do know that my Color IQ Color Match is 1Y07. Thanks for your help.
Hello beauties, I recently went in to see my dermatologist to see what options I might have in terms of treating my acne scars, and he recommended laser treatments for my face. Unfortunately, I can't afford laser, so I've been reading online about other treatments/remedies that are affordable and can be done at home: applying vitamin E oil, tea tree oil, coconut oil, or lemon juice (not all at once, of course). Have any of you tried any one of these remedies? If so, have you had success? Perhaps there is something that has worked for you that I did not mention; please share, as I am desperate in getting rid of these acne scars that have plagued me for years! Thank you in advance for your expertise, recommendations, and input. With love, Daskala Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Hello! I am a makeup artist and I need help for a wedding I am doing this upcoming July. My client needs to have eczema scars covered up on her arms and legs. She would like body makeup however I wanted to know which product would be the best to use. I need a product which won't smudge on her white dress, as well as be waterproof/ sweat proof. I need your help ASAP if anyone could recommend any products that would be great. Thanks, Gaby
I am looking for a new moisturizer. My skin is normal to combination. I have pretty normal skin everywhere but my t-zone, which tends to get oily throughout the day. I have been noticing lately that my pores are more noticeable and I have a little bit of redness in my cheek and chin area. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
A fellow BT-er is sending me a "reward" and wants nothing in return. So, I decided to pay it forward. As many of you know, I'm a little too into Korean skin care and indie perfumes. So I'm going to give something away…full sized and fun. Maybe more than one…and I'll probably throw in some samples. To enter…comment on this thread and answer the question: name a brand or product you love that I'll probably not recognize or tell us all one of your beauty rituals (even just washing your face every day). Good luck! I'll figure out a winner on Sunday and send them a PM. If I don't get an address by Monday I'll pick another winner…and so on.. AmyC has decided to join in the fun by paying forward as well. She is giving a separate reward and I'm going to let her announce to whom and what it is (we chatted offline). Nice to see how one gift begets another. And, btw, my original reward came from bea0t (so she was the catalyst).
Hi! Can't find an answer to this in the product's Q&A so I thought I should ask here: When the Dior SkinFlash Radiance Booster Pen is empty, does it stop clicking or does it simply not dispense anymore product? I read at least one review saying their pen wouldn't dispense product unless they kept the applicator clean by washing it regularly. I wish I could see how much product was still in the pen. Thanks for any help!
In search of something I can use for minimizing the look of lines and wrinkles around my eyes and forehead I have horrible lines at the time of my nose/forehead probable from squinting. Is there something you suggest
Hi everyone!! I just got the boscia 500 point reward set that contains the "black" line of products. I was looking at the ingredients of the detoxifying black cleanser and I noticed that it contains charcoal and is use to eliminate excess oil and impurities. I have dry skin and I'm worry that it would dry out my skin even more, do you think I should use it? Or do you think the other ingredients would help to prevent excess dryness? THANKS!!
Does anyone know what concealer shade I would be in the estee lauder double wear stay in place concealer and the kat von d lock it concealer? my foundation is light 44 in the kat von d and 1C1 cool bone for the estee lauder foundation! thanks!
Hello. I have Mediterranean type skin and I want to buy the the shiseido uv protective foundation. I have oily skin so I prefer to get my uv protection from a compact foundation (if you have other suggestions beyond the shiseido foundation, I'd love to hear them). I used to have the medium beige shade but I found it was too dark for me. Would light beige or light ochre work better for my olive skin? Thanks, Mikaella.
Ok so I am a mother of 4 and many times I just don't have the time or the energy to do my makeup/hair... When I don't get done up I look like death, seriously I have the worst dark circles under my eyes and look like I haven't slept in forever (which is most of the time)... I would like to know what are some of the products of you use, what are your routines and favorite items so you don't look dead but doesn't take more than 5 minutes tops? As always thanks for your help!!!
Hello. I'm looking for something to help even out my skin tone. I typically don't like to wear much make up but I am noticing that my skin is uneven and red in some areas. I was wondering if there was a light weight option to help me, whether it be foundation, tinted moisturizer, bb cream, or cc cream. I'm hoping to find something that is mattifying as well. Thanks!
