what can i do about my dry skin?
hi!! <3 guys i really, really want to wear foundation. I never get to wear it because my skin is dry. I've tried exfoliators, lotions, anything you can suggest ive tried. and nothing. When i put my foundation on it doesnt look blended into my skin. you can see flakyness and you can still see my imperfections. I go on youtube and see all these beautiful gurus and how pretty and natural their foundations look and i want to look the same. I think i would be the happiest person alive if someone can help me out. Thankssss

Need help getting rid of dark circles!!
Hey guys! So I need some help. I have a bad case of dark undereye circles, and have no clue how to make them go away (or get lighter). I got them while finishing my Bachelor in Animation (lots of all-nighters, etc), and so far have only been covering them up with makeup.  I now have some more free time, have been getting my 8 (sometimes 9 lol) hours of beaty sleep. They have slowly been getting better, but I would love some advice on cremes or serums I can use on my undereye are to make my dark circles go away. Cheers!     *** I would like to point out that I HAVE tried the GlamGlow Mud treatment, and that was a no-go for me***

Looking for a red lipstick alternative for travel.
I’ve been working on simplifying my makeup for a rather active trip I have coming up. I have no problem switching out my foundation for a CC cream or skipping the liquid liner in favor of an extra coat of mascara, but I keep on running into a roadblock with my lip color.   I simply don’t leave the house without a fully-lined, totally opaque, semi-matte red lip. But I can’t help but feel it’s a little inappropriate for where I’m going and what I’m doing. I’ve been looking at things like the Tarte Lip Tints or Clinique Chubby Sticks, but I can’t seem to wrap my head around the concept of Not Lipstick.   What I’m looking for is something long-wearing, non-drying, red (pinks and I have never gotten along), but a bit more natural and low-maintenance. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!     What I usually wear:   Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb   Besame Lipstick in Cherry Red   Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Hellbent

In Search Of A New Tinted Moisturizer ?
Hey everyone,   So I am in need of a good recommendation for Tinted Moisturizer that can be found at Sephora.    I've been using the Wet'N'Wild one that you can find at Walmart. It's a great product longevity wise, coverage wise but the color selection is very poor and doesn't work well for me.    So I am on the hunt for a new Tinted Moisturizer that has Light to Medium buildable coverage. It'd have to be great for Combo skin and have a much wider shade range. I'd also like it to have decent longevity as well.

(Body) moisturizer for sensitive skin with SPF?
I have sensitive skin on my neck and chest - sometimes (especially after showers) I get an unsightly red rash of hives there which takes a few hours to fade.  I'd like to try using a moisturizer on the area to reduce the inflammation.  Also, since I live in Southern California, I'd really like to use something with SPF.  I prefer to use lightweight moisturizers on my body (anything heavier tends to break me out).  Do you have any recommendations?

In-flight mini facial kit - any other suggestions?
  In a few months I'm going to be doing a very long haul (14 hour) flight. One of the things I'm really looking forward to is settling down in my seat, having a glass of champagne,  giving myself a mini-facial and trying stuff from my recent chic week haul to keep my skin nicely hydrated throughout the flight.  I've also got a few simple makeup things so I'll look reasonably decent when I disembark. I think I've got it  all sussed - it's pretty much all foils and samples so I'm traveling pretty light even though I've got lots of stuff.  I'd love to hear any other suggestions though - TSA approved please!   So, in order of usage, I've got: Ole Henriksen Vit C Cleansing Wipes When Whenever You Travel gel fiber mask Shiseido Benefiance Eye Mask Dior One Essential Serum (foil) Tarte Maracuja Oil Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream L'Occitane hand cream and lip balm Single use moisturizing eye drops Then, for freshening up and getting ready to disembark: Lavanila deodorant  Amele freshening up wipes Dry shampoo Teeth and mouthwash stuff (not pictured) Ole Henriksen Vit C Brightening Serum (foil) Murad day cream (foil) Smashbox primer Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Couple basic eye shadows (not pictured) Lancome black eye pencil Chanel mascara YSL Rebel Nudes glossy stains (foil)

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation R
 Hi guys,   I recently got the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation in Rich Chestnut 5C1.  I think this shade matches my skin but I'm not sure. I wear MUFE HD foundation in 178. I tried Estee lauder double wear in Amber Honey 5N2 and that was too orange for me and I tried it in Rich Cocoa 6C1 and that was too dark for me . Do you think this is the correct shade I should be wearing?
