I am 32 and am starting to develop some fine lines around my eyes. I have found an eye gel and a general moisturizer that I love, so my question is about make up. I would love to find a not-too-expensive eye shadow palette I can use for daily wear. My colorful, shimmery, sparkly stuff is still fun for the night time but I'm starting to feel like it accentuates fine lines and is a little age-inappropriate for daytime. I have fair/pale skin with pink undertones and dark brown hair and eyes.
So I called Sephora today to schedule a makeover and was informed that there was an international makeup artist coming in tomorrow and he (never caught his name) was doing free makeovers. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. I was just wondering if this was something "normal" at Sephora? I come into Sephora a lot, some of the staff even remember me each time I come in :*, and I've never heard of an "event" like this. And I didn't see this in the "store events" section on the website. Anyone ever have a makeover like this before? I'm kind of ambivalent towards this now because I chose this over getting a makeover with my favourite SA and I realize that there's a good chance he'll do my makeup beautifully and won't really tell me how he did it.
I have been using double wear light by esteem lauder, but lately I do not like how it looks on my skin. So I am looking for something for everyday. I am combo skin, I have some acne and scars. Since I am out most of the day, I need something that would last. I was thinking of trying dior star foundation, but some people say doesn't last all day? Any recommendation would help.... Please...
I just bought the Dior Addict Lipstick in Rock'n Roll (750) and I just love the color. I am very fair with red hair, so it's been impossible to find a wearable red color. I also like the shimmer of it, but it's not lasting at all. Does anyone know of a lipstick in that color, but longer lasting?
So I started shopping at Sephora a months ago for hair care products only. Makeup has always intimidated me, and I grew up a major tomboy so I never saw a need for it. In fact, I only started wearing makeup about a year ago (I'm 23) and strictly only bought drug store products. Now that I'm considered a "professional" in my field of work, I feel that my appearance should reflect that. I'm not saying that I don't "put myself together" before work, but I feel that I need to graduate from drug store to "grown up" makeup. Problem is, I have no idea where to start. The makeup side of Sephora is so overwhelming and I don't have a clue what I'm doing. Concealer? What the heck is that. Why is that primer green? I'm completely lost. Even after doing tons of research to see what I would need, I always find myself walking out empty handed. Hence, I've turned here. What are some basic products that you feel every girl should own? My skin is extremely dry and I also have rosacea on my cheeks and my forehead which is something I've always been really self conscious about. Honestly, anything helps. Thanks!!
I bought Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation around a month ago. In my experience, it dries quickly and leaves me with gross dry patches, plus the coverage fades fast as well. I hate it. I have given it many chances, including trying several different moisturizers and tools to fix my problem (this is why I've kept it as long as I have.) I do still have the original packing and the receipt. I have used it quiet often, but there's still a ton of product left. Also, what foundation would you suggest to me? I obviously need moisture in my foundation, and would like to have one that won't clog my pores or break me out. Thank you!
Hey guys so i have an issue. I use a Retin A cream in my night routine. So during the day i have to use an spf to protect my skin,,,, currently i use CeraVe spf moisture lotion. Unfortunately, Im now stuck with a white cast in photos. I dont use liquid foundation just concealer and laura mercier smooth finish powder foundation. I always set with UD setting spray.

Hi everyone! I just got a gift card to Douglas-a makeup store in Europe that carries brands like Tom Ford, Burberry, Isadora, Zoeva, and Clarins (and also brands that Sephora carries). Since I'm not at all familiar with these brands, is there anything you ladies would recommend? Amazing products or shades I need to try? I've been looking at Tom Ford Crimson Noir, but besides that I'm lost. Thanks!

I have always loved Bumble and Bumble BB holding spray. It has been discontinued, and I am hoarding one last little bit of it by using it only for very special occasions. I haven't been able to find another product that works in the same way. Can anyone suggest a replacement for the BB holding spray?
I want a holy grail lip primer. I want one that is not drying (already suffering with dry lips and winter has barely begun). I want it to stop lipstick feathering and bleeding and lock in color so I'm not reapplying every hour. I don't want it to be either slippery nor drying. Is Guerlains Kiss Kiss worth a shot?
I have dark circles under, around, in between my eyes. Legitimate, unrelated to sleep, dark circles. If I wear eyeshadow I look like I've been punched in the eyes. I've tried Lemonade, Fake-up, Smashbox under-eye brightener... the problems is that it's not just under. It's all around. I'm fair-medium skin, late 30's, very few fine lines (I don't suntan) with dark hair and hazel eyes. And, to boot, I get eczema under my eyes. HELP ME. Seriously, I'm looking for products, colours, all around eye suggestions. This image has not been edited. This is my dark circle problem....
Hello! I am 27, and have oily/combination/sensitive skin that is very acne prone. I get breakouts all over the face, but especially on the cheeks and chin area. (I've been dealing with acne for over 12+ yrs). I am looking to purchase a Clarisonic device, and wasn't sure which one to get. Should I get the Mia1 or Mia 2? (Is there a huge difference between the delicate/universal speed setting? Thank you!
I am 43 and a fair skinned caucasian. I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes (seriously - they are there in pictures when I was 3) made worse by allergies. My skin is dry, starting to show a little age around the eyes and top top it off I get eczema around my eyes from time to time. I am looking for a concealer that will help masque these dark bags. But at the same time not be dry or accentuate the line below my eyes. Anything I have to set with powder is also a problem as they all instantly look cakey. I feel like I have tried everything! Cle de Peu (both matching shade and a honey to counteract the blue). Settles into lines and looks heavy. Amazing Concealer. Same as above - looks like paste. Make up Forever. Did nothing. Trish McEvoy Under eye brightener (which I like but still doesn't quite cover enough). Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealers. Fine but not enough coverage for the effort. Touche Eclat (A joke for models who sleep 10 hours a day :-) Laura Mercier - way too dry and mixed with moisture doesn't cover Benefit - Erase Paste and Boing all trigger allergies and eczema attacks - cannot use this line. So - is there a great mystery product out there I haven't tried? Im not expecting a miracle and for them to vanish without looking like I am wearing a mask, but something to minimize would be great. Or am I stuck just buying bigger glasses and hiding behind them?
Hey ladies! Lately I have noticed that my mascara is smudging onto the area under my eyes. The area directly under my lower lash line gets black smudges, and it is no matter the brand of mascara! I only put mascara on my top lashes as well, so this is so frustrating. It makes me look like I have big dark circles under my eyes. Please help!
Hello everyone! Today, my mini Josie Maran argan oil dropper popped off (the glass dropper). Upon closer inspection, I saw some black dots on it! It very much looks like mold or something, and I'm concerned that I've been using this oil with mold on the dropper. I tried to get a good picture but I cant get the camera to focus on the glass, so I'm sorry its a bit blurry Can someone tell me what they think it is? And if it is mold, is there is any risk from touching it everyday and applying it to the skin? I would take it to a store, but its more than half used, and I don't want to abuse the return system. Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I am wondering what lip liner (Probably from NARS) would match a couple of shades from NARS Audacious line. I am looking for matches to Charlotte and Bette. They are relatively close to each other. I have never used lip liner before, but I've been reading about how to get the most out of your lip color and get it to last longer. Everything I've read mentions using liner. Thanks in advance!
