Ok, so I have seen people comment in various threads about items they would like to see coming out for the Holidays. That gave me an idea, and after trying a couple of searches and coming up with nothing, I decided to pose these questions to everyone on Beauty Talk: If you could create your own Sephora Favorites set, what would it be? Or, if you were asked to create the next amazing palette, what brand(s) would you use and what would be in it? These are just starting points, but lets all get creative! If it were up to us, the consumers, what awesome things could be created to get everyone excited? I will start things off! If I could create a palette for Hourglass, it would be a large palette (but not TOO large) that has all of the Ambient powders and all of the Ambient blushes. They would be smaller in size, but a great way to try them all and play around! Or could make 2, each with all the Ambient powders then add blushes for warm skin tones in one palette with blushes for cool skin tones in the other. What are your ideas?
I'm going to lose my mind the more and more I read, hear and learn about bronzer! I just bought Chanel Les Beiges and am NOT looking to use it for contouring, but rather to give a little bit of warmth to my light, neutral-if-not-ever-so-slightly-cool undertoned face. I got it in shade 30, which is very similar to my natural skin color, but warmer and a couple very minor shades darker. It doesn't help that I tend to get pink/burn in the sun, so that is the color that I'm accustomed to seeing on the top of my nose, temples, etc. that I am now hoping to replace with bronzer. The last piece of advice I received from an SA I trust at Sephora said to go out into the sun, and wherever you feel the sun hit your face would be where bronzer should be applied. But that also seems like where I already apply blush and/or highlighter. Which has led me to create this thread, trying to figure out how to use them together. Would love some insight or direction to a good diagram on how to use blush/bronzer (not as a contour)/highlighter together. Because what the SA said makes total sense to me, but there isn't enough room on my face for everything!
Hi all!!! I want a daytime moisturizer that is gentle on my skin but that will improve it over time (not just coat it with silicones) and even my skin tone / decrease pore size / smooth the skin (and also will prep for makeup!). I have oily skin with large pores and it does get sensitive at times. This is my current routine: Cleanser: either Algenist Gentle Cleanser or Philosophy Purity Gel Cleanser Toner: day=Michael Todd Organics Antibacterial Algae Moisturizing Toner night= Michael Todd Organics AHA/BHA exfoliating toner I CANNOT stand any moisturizer with sparkle too it... I wanted to love the Algenist Pore Refining Gel Moisturizer but there are freaking mica sparkles in it and they accentuate my pores ARGHH! Please help!!!! Also -- Is it OK to use moisturizers that contain oils on oily skin? Will they clog my pores? Sometimes I use Korres Rose Sleeping Facial at night and I feel like my skin drinks it uppppp but it's too heavy for a daytime moisturizer... Any suggestions would be a huge help xoxo.
Ok so I recently bought Bare Minerals original foundation...I figured it would be an easy foundation for days I don't feel like doing much. I put on a primer, liquid illuminator and a little bit of cream concealer then went to apply the foundation with the tarte airbrush finish brush (recommended by TiffanyD to use with this foundation) and it looked terrible! It went on patchy and clinged to dry spots that didn't exist before I put it on. I do have dry skin, but have learned to moisturize well before applying foundation. I feel like I made a crucial mistake somewhere along during the application because I know this is a very loved foundation by many people. Anyone have any ideas?
I am very very simple when it comes to putting on makeup, and I am attending an outdoor wedding on October 4th at Ahmanson Ranch, which I guess is really really nice. I was wondering if there were any tips you could give me to just do a simple, but fresh and pretty look for an outdoor, country themed wedding... I am wearing a royal blue dress, beige heels, I have blue/green eyes, tan skin, and dirty blonde hair.
Hello. I'm trying to get into the hang of makeup. I don't really own any brushes. I use a liquid foundation and just apply with hands at the moment. I have Mac's mineralize natural I apply with a sponge... please correct me on what brushes should be used. I want to buy a cheap basic brush set off ebay/amazon. They're like 12-pieces or something for less than $15. I just have no idea which ones are good for liquids, powders, contouring, eye blending (without you looking like a panda) etc. For example in e.l.f. Studio Brush set. They have a complexion, foundation (angled, pointed) , powder, stipple, fan, smudge brush, etc. So many! http://img2.buyincoins.com/gallery3/1/f3/55281/055 281-1-04.jpg If someone doesn't mind helping me be educated in this art, I truly appreciate it!
I am a 18 years old teenager with a combination skin type, and I am wondering if I have gone overboard with skincare. I clean my face with the clarisonic and cleanser twice a day and use exfoliating product once a week. Then I use a toner, essence, prepping lotion, radiant serum, hydrating serum, brightening serum, revitalizing serum, eye cream, and facial cream. As for mask, I put on cleansing mask, hydrating mask, brightening mask once a week in different days. If I get a breakout or small pimple, I would put on a layer of tea tree oil and 2% salicylic acid product on the infected site after I am finished with my routine. So, I am using too many skincare products?
Hi there - I'm a huge consumer of mascara and eyeliner. I used to have a great face wash that could handle the chore of removing my eye makeup as well as clean my face, but it was discontinued. I want one product - a face wash - that can do the trick. I don't want to use eye makeup remover after I wash my face. Any thoughts?
I match perfectly with BareMineral Bareskin #3 Linen and Cover FX 30 but when i looked for a pick for baremineral original foundation powder it was Medium Beige here. When I went to the bare mineral site it was Fairly Light. I know my skin is neutral more then yellow from all the past foundations I've tried. I was just wondering if I should purchase the Medium Beige this site picked for me or the Fairly Light picked by BareMinerals site?
My fav Lancome waterproof mascara failed me today when I went to raging waters. All the mascara smudged to the bottom of my eyes and looked horrible (I didnt notice until 2 hrs later). Can someone recommend me a "real" waterproof mascara that does not budge even with a makeup remover- thanks.
I have very large pores around my nose/t-zone, and I am in desperate search for a primer to cover them! I also tend to have a little bit of oily skin in that area as well, so I need the primer to last all day. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin. I'm looking for a face serum that will work well with my skin type. Does anyone have any suggestions. Also in looking for a new moisturizer. I was looking at the Korres Pomegranate Balancing Gel-Cream Moisturizer. Had anyone tried it? What do you think about it?
I use NC 40 and NC 42 in MAC. I use MUFE HD 153 (which still seems a little dark). I need to know what shade in YSL Fusion Ink would best suit me. I hate foundations that have a pink-ish tint to them as my skin is more on the yellow side.
I am really wanting to try Dior star foundation but not sure what a good color will be for me! Please help. I am shade 360 bisque in Lancôme teint idole ultra 24h foundation BD 55 warm praline in YSL fusion ink foundation and NW 35 in MAC
I'm looking for the shade that would match me best in the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. I'm NW20 in the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation, N1 in the MAC Face & Body Foundation, 3.0 in the Urban Decay Naked Sin Foundation and 30 in the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet +. Does anyone have any idea or suggestion on what shade I would be?

Hi, anyone and everyone I'm currently using this toner from Mary Kay and I've been using this product for a year now, but it's almost done. I LOVE this toner. However, I'm branching into new skin care to see what else works. I was wondering which toner is really good for dry skin but pimple concerns every now and then. I don't have an acne prone skin, but they occasionally pop up and I want a product to complement that issue. Can I please get a good recommendation? I'm willing to try anything. Thank you!!!
I want to use a (or a few) Boscia skin cleaners/moisturizers, since I've heard great things about them from friends and reviews, but I don't know the differences between all the (cleansers etc.) products. What is best for a not-so-oily face? Do you have an opinion on any? Any answers are greatly appreciated, thank you.
In search of a setting power that doesn't not wash you out. I am currently using dermablend white setting powder and it's great because it leaves skin matte, however I notice that in pictures my face looks really pale and washed out. Any recommendations??
Hi. I just bought Amazing Cosmetics Concealer in Light Honey. It was way too light! The Sephora near me does not carry Amazing Cosmetics. Can you help me find the right shade? For reference, I currently use Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3. The darker shade in the Laura Mercier SC-3 is a good match for my skin. I also use Benefit Hello Flawless in Never Settle Petal.
Color iq came up 1y06. My bobbi brown current shade warm beige puts me at 2y06. The Kat Von d light 49 looked good in store (maybe even a shade too light) but has darkened in the hours since and some places actually appear orange. Is this what people call oxidizing? Is there a fix for it or am I going to have to try a completely different formula? Thanks.
