Hi, I have been using the shade 'Barcelona' (medium w/ olive undertones) in the NARS Sheer Glow through the summer and love it. However, my tan is fading and I'm looking for a lighter shade to mix into my Barcelona as I head towards my naturally paler complexion in the winter. What would you suggest as I have to buy online and can't make it into a store? Cheers, Courtenay
Hey guys! I need some advice for men skincare. My 32 year old brother suffers from oily skin and breakouts. I want to get him a gift to combat his skincare concerns and I've been telling him he should try clearsonic. I don't have one but I've always wanted one myself! I saw they have a new clearsonic alpha fit cleansing system for men but it is $189 whereas there is also a new Clinique for men sonic deep cleansing brush for only $89. Does anyone have any recommendations or thoughts on each? The Clinique definitely fits my budget more but is it any less effective? Or any other skincare and tool recommendations for him?
i have tried MANY different concealers and foundations to try and cover the dark patches on my skin. (especially for the dark patch above my upper lip that resembles a five o' clock shadow, and is quite embarrasing) any suggestions?
I'm fairly new to this and recently got a few samples from my local sephora. I now want to try other foundations I've heard really great things about but I don't know my shade. The foundation samples I got were from MUFE y365 and Kat Von D #53 & #54. Is it possible to find my skintone number based on these foundations?
Hey All! I'll be 31 soon and am finally starting to take my eye skincare regiment seriously. I'm looking for something (especially at night) to help address fine lines/wrinkles, but am totally overwhelmed at all of the options. I do understand that I should be looking for something with retinol and have been pouring over reviews for a bunch of products (Verso Super Eye and Dr. Gross Triple Correction serums seem to be the top so far), but want to make sure I don't spend money on something that's not going to help in the long run - so here I am! Thanks in advance!
I have scarring from acne and tweezing ingrown hairs (hirsituism). I need a new skin care routine and all new makeup. I have combination skin that gets more oily as the day goes. I have used Clinique and bare minerals in the past. What do you suggest for a new routine that is affordable? Thanks in advance!
Oddly, today I finished the most recent Coco Chanel biography (amazing) and I also got a really weird email through my youtube that if I wanted a boy I should wear more Chanel scents and Guerlain makeup. Crazy timing (and comment) right? But I got to thinking...I used to wear Chanel scents and I used to wear even more of their makeup. The latter I've recently gotten more into ..and the product can be excellent though not always. So, if I want more boys, or just to buy the best of Chanel, what should I be buying (or is Guerlain a better bet)?
Help! Im going into 9th grade and am looking for a better makeup/skincare routine, as of right now i wear an elf primer, maybelline acne fighting bb cream, a crappy concealer, and a smooth minerals press powder, any ideas as to what i can use to cover the occassional breakouts (and a better concealer) ps- i have a fair skintone (im a redhead) and a normal skin type
I have combination skin. Oily t-zone and sometimes dry patches. I feel like all foundations I've tried are too heavy or are too light basically don't cover anything. I like the almost photoshopped look Kylie's skin has but which foundation is good for that?
I need advice on skin care that works for a 36 year old that still has acne. Not only do I still have problems with acne, I'm now in my 30s and don't want to create wrinkles. My skin is olive and tends have dark spots where blemishes have been. I also have dark spots along my jaw line which are new in the last couple of years. I'm sure a lot of it is related to stress and hormones, but neither one of those things are going away. I've tried pretty much everything including Obagi. It seems that things people have recommended have either focused on improving the dark spots and made the acne worse or vice versa. Isn't there something out there that can effectively treat both? Any suggestions?
Highlighters and contouring are the talk of the season. I wanted to start a thread where everyone can list their skintone and highlighters they own/like for different occasions. It could be a useful resource for anyone looking for highlighters. Are you guys in? I will start. Skintone: Medium/ Mac NC30ish Highlighter Liquid- Becca Opal (Love it, most used), Benefit high beam (too light, good for fairer skintone) Cream- Benefit Watts Up (Good match, don't use it often) Powder- Kevin aucoin celestial powder in candlelight (Love it, most used)
Greetings! recently we lost everything due to a house fire, now i need to replace everything including my make up. At the time of the fire i had a drawer full of everything from Loreal to Mac to UD and all in between. This time i would like to have all my products fit in one case, awesome products that i use daily - not once then end up at the back of my drawer under piles of other products never to be seen again. I am including a picture so you all can help me pick out the best ones for my skin color. (Don't judge! i was at the beach!) Much love to all! Tabitha
I typically get my brows waxed to clear out obvious strays, and pretty much keep things natural beyond that. Being a beauty newbie who is starting to experiment with more involved looks, I keep thinking the portions of my brow that are closest to my nose are a little too bushy and cut off my brow bone a little too much. I'm thinking about carefully tweezing on my (where I can make decisions on each individual hair) rather than go to a salon and risk having too much removed. The look I am going for is a mild reshape to make my brow bone more visible and give me a little more space to play with colors. Having a fuller face, I suspect I shouldn't make them too whispy. Is is this a reasonable goal? Some image of what I currently have going on are below. Am I nuts to consider reshaping on my own? Should I use a template such as the ABH ones, or just go without? Any favorite templates? If professional help is advised, how to I find a professional who won't over do it? I realize this this is such a basic question, so I really appreciate any advice I can get!
Ok..deep breath. I am a female who unfortunately has awful facial hair issues, which in turn I have to shave. My jawline and chin area can be smooth as can be but when I put makeup on, it looks rough and bumpy up close. I use Tend skincare after shaving to help with razor bumps and irritation. No matter what primer or foundation I use this is the end result. Is there anything I can do skin care wise or makeup wise to help minimize this? I am so embarrassed about this and feel like people are always looking at this part of my face. I use purity face wash, Clinique mild clarifying toner, and Clinique moisture surge. I also use Clinique men's exfoliating face scrub before shaving to try and get a good close shave.
Hey everyone, So, like I said, I've been having a difficult time trying to make my foundation look as natural and flawless as possible. Basically, my foundation tends to exaggerate my pores and also makes the areas underneath my eyes and mouth look gray (which makes me feel like I look like I have a moustache!) The other areas on my face look decent but I just can't ever seem to achieve the flawless look I see these famous youtubers accomplishing. I just switched to Mac Pro-Longwear foundation (which I love), and I apply with a damp beauty blender. I of course make sure to apply a moisturizer and primer before, and then set with a powder, bronzer, blush and then finish with a seeting spray. So what am I doing wrong?!
So I dyed my hair green a few months back and I faded it but didn't take all the color out. After that I bleached it, which didn't take out the rest of the green...so then I used One N Only Colorfix (I used it about a week ago) from Sally's Beauty Supply. It seemed like it removed it, but the green is slowly coming back. Nothing is working. My hair is a disgusting embarrassing snot green/yellow color. I wanted to dye it pink tomorrow! Will the pink dye cover it, or will I have to try something else? Here is my hair color now (sorry, I had just washed it): I wanted to dye it this color: Please help! I'm at my wits end.

Hi I recently started using Nars sheer glow foundation and I am in the shade punjab and I really was wanting to try Nars concealer stick but unfortunately i don't know what shade i would be so i was wondering if you would mind helping me. Thank You!!!
I am absolutely in love with makeup! I am very serious about it too and would like to open up more makeup doors and enhance my makeup range. I only own a few products, but i am not satisfied with the quality. I have purchased things like loreal or maybelline (really cheap eyeshadows) to try and do the eye tutorials, but every time I use these cheap eyeshadows it looks absolutely horrible! It looks like a small layer of brown stuff on my eyes, it doesn’t distribute the colour evenly and the worst bit of all, there is no pigment in the eyeshadows. I know that if I at least get good quality eyeshadow kits, maybe the outcome would be different. My only wish one day is to be able to purchase amazing brands and experiment for myself, but I do not have the money for these experiences. My questions are; What are some of the BEST and PIGMENTED eyeshadow brands out there (for a natural look, a smoky eye look, and a going out look). What are the best contouring kits out there (I have been ripped off by a contouring kit that doesn’t even apply the product to the face). I recently purchased some brushes online but got completely scammed. The brushes don’t even pick up the product! That was one of the worst purchases I ever made. I do not want to make the same mistake again with the brushes. I was wondering if you could list some of your favourite: foundation, contouring and concealer brushes best eyesahdow and full eye brushes (it doesn’t matter how many) best lip brushes I dont mind spending the money if i know its worth the money. But i am limited with the pricing. Thank you so much for all your help! look forward to your replies
This is mainly just a curiosity thing, but this isn't the first time it happened. I am hoping this isn't going to kill the awesome positive vibe we have back today!! But when you are in the process of checking out, is there a way to make sure that your items in your cart stay your items? I had the Naked Flushed that was in the sale section in my cart twice. On 2 different days, and it has been taken out because I have been continuing to shop. :-(
Hi, I use my beauty blender everyday to apply my foundation and admittedly don't clean it too often, which I know is bad. I just spent 10 minutes washing it with bar soap (I have tried cleaning with face washes and cetaphil in the past and never saw significant results). Is there any better way to clean for dramatic results without buying the BB cleanser they sell. Also, after cleaning I am noticing it almost looks like a candy corn with the top appearing orange-ish, the middle a faded pink, and the bottom a dark pink, with a lot of black around (which I am hoping is not mold) (I don't use the bottom too often). None of it resembles the bright pink it originally was. Is there a way to salvage this beauty blender, or is there no choice but to buy a new one? Thank you
Hi, everyone! I have a question regarding gift-cards bought in United States. One of my friend has a Sephora gift card and she doesn't wear makeup so I was wondering if I can use her gift card number in Canada at any Sephora retail store. I won't have the actual gift-card but would a gift card number or scanned copy of the gift card work? Looking forward to any replies by the experts.
