My upper lashes are plenty long, but they want to curl upward and point inward, instead of outward, at the outer edge of my lid. I'm searching for tips to get them pointing the right way. I can "tease" them out with the pointed end of the mascara wand, but then the mascara's too clumpy. I think I should get them pointed the right direction first, and THEN deal with the mascara, but how? I've tried a spoolie (wet and dry) but they don't stay pointed out. Thanks.
I have oily, acne-prone skin so I like to use long-lasting, fuller coverage foundations. But, with my oily skin, the foundation will not stick. I apply a primer (Tarte Poreless primer) and let it dry or set. I then proceed to use my foundation (whether it be Estee Lauder Double Wear, Makeup Forever Matte Velvet +, or Urban Decay Naked Skin). Sometimes it will stick but if I touch it again if I am applying a concealer on top or even powder, it will totally lift off the skin and I have to start all over. It is so frustrating. I live a few hours away from any sephora so I can't physically go and talk to somebody so I need help here. I use Clean & Clear Dual Action moisturizer (oil free) if you are wondering. Is there any primer that could work with these kinds of foundations? Or is there anything else that you would recommend?
I am 54 years old, have combination skin and use fragrance free products. I've just bought the Ole Henrikson 3 Little Wonders as I wanted to try this line. I'm looking for anit-aging products and to combat fine lines/wrinkles. What would you suggest my next purcnases should be? I need something for eyes, etc.
My skin is my biggest concern for a while now, but after trying a lot of different products by myself I've decided to seek help from an expert. I live in a small middle of nowhere town so I'm not close to any dermatologist. I hope to get help online though. I'm 15 years old, but I already have wrinkles on my forehead and slightly visible lines around my eyes. Any anti wrinkle product that's effective? If the ones I have won't disappear I would just like to know if there are any products that would prevent new wrinkles. Next concern is that I have dark circles under my eyes, concealing is not helping just making it worse, is there any product/ I've heard that oils help/ that would make them a bit less dark? Then, I'm oily in the T zone and I always have at least one pimple on my face in that area and blackheads. The rest of my face is normal, not dry but not oily. Should I care differently for one area than the other? I have no idea how to choose a proper skin care. Discoloration is another thing. I no longer pick my pimples, but I did and they left marks, discoloration or scars that are like these little holes. Is there any way I could deal with that? I've thought about getting laser treatment for it after I'm no longer a teenager, but is there any product? I also have marks on my back from acne on my back, so it would be great if I could use it for that too. Then I have broken vessels or what to call it around my mouth and the lower part of my cheeks. I noticed them a few years back but it's possible I had them before that, I don't know what caused them and when they appeared. Again, will only laser help or is there anything else? I haven't been using anything on my face, washing it with water sometimes and putting olive oil on it which left the normal part of my face nicely moisturized and healthy, but didn't help the rest. Is it normal to have so many things wrong with my skin? Is there any hope for me? What should I use/ do? Thank you!!
Hi girls! I was looking for the best foundation ever at Sephora and the girl who helped me out recommended the Armani Maestro Foundation in 5.25. I guess I have a light to medium skin with yellow undertones, but still haven't figured out how this really works I usually wear during winter MUFE in 127/140 and 160 during summer (also Teint Jolie by YSL in Foncè). I'm afraid the 5.25 shade would be too dark for me during winter and, being its price quite expensive I wanted to be completely sure about it. I totally trust you experts, can't wait to have your suggestions about the perfect foundation for me!
Can we somehow change a review? We used to be able to write more than one but now that doesn't seem to work anymore (so we could average them). 4 is too low…but I just decided at the last moment that 5 was too high and went with 4.
For nearly a year now, my skin has transformed into what I call an awful mask. I have red bumps (not pimples) throughout my face, dry patches that even pure coconut oil won't help. My fine lines have definitely gotten a bit worse and I just have a rough, uneven texture with enlarged pored and a loss of elasticity. My chin is often oily though and I get breakouts a lot in that area. I feel like I don't even know which problems to start with and products i used in the past that are no longer working. My skin is also very fair and sensitive. I'm getting anxiety due to how bad my skin is and I really just need advice on what products will help. I'm also on a bit of a budget. Thanks for reading, I hope to hear back soon. (SN: I'm 26 years old).
I have tried everything for the blackheads on my nose and chin. Nothing seems to work! Drugstore and dermatologist ointment. I'm hoping sephora has something I don't know about. I have heard a product called Glam Glow works well? Suggestions?
Hi there, so I went into my local store and had to trade out my Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation for a darker shade, and when the Beauty Advisor applied the foundation to my face, I loved the brush she was using, but failed to ask her which one it was so I could purchase it. I also use the new bareMinerals Acne Preventing powder foundation, and am wondering which brush I should use for that as well? Thank you!
When I cry my nose and cheeks turn a nice shade of red. I would like to prevent this from showing through my makeup at an upcoming wedding. Can you recommend a redness correction lotion as I have BB creams, light foundations and heavier foundations so I don't need any more foundation products.
I need help picking out a primer, but I'm limited to the brand Murale's site. My skin has occasional breakouts and enlarged pores on the cheeks and under the nose. My skin is also somewhat oily. Are Stila's Stay all day 10 in 1 primer (not available at Sephora) and One Step Correct good options? If so, which one would be better for my skin type? EDIT: I'm not limited to just Stila's face primers, any other suggestions are welcomed, as long as Murale carries that brand.
What are your thoughts on this set? I just ordered it but am a bit fearful that they will not be up to par with the quality of the sephora pro brushes which are fantastic! I can't stand when brushes shed so I am hoping this are okay but have any of you tried this set ? http://www.sephora.com/dual-action-brush-set-P3777 72?skuId=1492750
Hey Beauties! Looking for a facial exfoliating wash gentle enough for acne and combination skin---how's the Glamglow exfoliating treatment? I've heard good things about the Boscia exfoliating cleanser, but that dries out my skin, since I have combination and not oily---any suggestions?
Hi, I've been battling with acne for a while. Just went to see a new dermatologist and am prescribed some topicals that will be doing the job of drying my skin for me. She told me not to be using facial cleansers or moisturizers with any of the ingredients for acne such as salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide or I'll be drying my skin out even more which will be producing more oil. Before today's appointment, I've been using Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion (for oily/acne prone skin) and washing with Estee Lauder perfectly clean foam cleanser. Any product recommendations? My skin is pretty sensitive, so anything really light that doesn't contain "acne" concern ingredients would be great!
I did the Color IQ in a Sephora store and my match is 1Y02. None of the shades of YSL Fusion Ink Foundation come up as a match, but I'd like to try the product. What shade would be the closest match for me?
Hi, I just wanted a professional opinion on how to get the most benefits out of my skincare routine and your opinion on what time (night time or day time) i should apply these as well. I will tell you beside the products what time of day I have been applying them but i still want your opinion on the matter. These are the products i use: *Clinique liquid facial soap for oily skin (day and night) *Clinique clarifying lotion type 3 for oily combination skin (day and night) *Clinique dramaticaly different moisturizing gel for oily skin (day time) (should i use at night also?) *Clinique Repairwear laser focus serum (day time) (should i use at night also?) *Clinique Repairwear laser focus wrinkle correcting eye cream (day time) *Clindagel (prescribed acne medication that is a thin liquid) (night time) *Mario Badescu glycolic eye cream (night time) *Tarte Maracuja Oil (night time) -thank you- and for my acne medicine my dermatologist said i can apply it under or over moisterizer at night, hope that helps with giving me a good answer
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!
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!
If someone doesn't mind helping me be educated in this art, I truly appreciate it!
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.
