My Eyes!!
  I don't have dark circles but my eyes always look tired. I'm in my early 20's. I just had a baby so my face always looks tired no matter how much sleep I get. I don't have wrinkles and not really any bags. I just want something to help my face look more awake. I don't wear makeup either. Some one help!!

Mascara won't go on lashes anymore!
My lashes are still there, but no matter how long I apply it, mascara just doesn't go on anymore. Unless I put on primer/lash conditioner, the mascara doesn't "stick" onto the lashes. What's going on? This is maddening.

Wedding Skin
My wedding is coming up in a few months and I am wearing a strapless dress.   I have always had problems with red acne on  my back and white/black heads on my chest.  It is not nearly as bad as it was when I was younger (I am now 26). I have been using the Dr. Gross alpha/beta exfoliating wipes and have not seen much if any difference.  I did like that they sluffed off my dead skin cells though and they were easy to use (especially for hard to reach places such as my back).   I am looking for a product that will help clear up any breakouts as well as make my skin look smoother with less dark spots from old acne scars.  It has to be easy to use!!

Redness corrector
Hi there, I would love to have a corrector for redness/rosecea, preferably the same consistency as a primer and maybe even for wear on its own on good skin days.   I read so many reviews saying that the different redness corrective products didn't work for them so now I don't know which one to pick?   Would it be better to go for a concealer product instead?   Thank you.

Concealer Recommendation Needed
Hi, I am currently using the Benefit Fake-Up Underye Hydrating Concealer in Medium (02). I wanted to switch to another concealer that's best for the underye area, provides a bit more coverage than the one I'm currently using, and is brightening (perhaps to double as an under eye highlighter). Any suggestions on recommended brightening concealers, and what shade do you think I'd be based on the one I am using now which is in Medium. I have combination/oily skin, medium olive tone color. Thanks!

Foundation looks cakey no matter what?! Help please!
So i've been wearing makeup for about a year now. I have tried several different foundations and primers and used several different tools to apply and my foundation ALWAYS looks cakey or looks separated on my skin. No matter what primer, moisturizer, or foundation i use my foundation finish is just so cakey looking. Ive practiced all of these techniques and nothing has worked. I use a beauty blender most of the time but i have a lot of redness/acne so i sometimes use a brush for more coverage. Even when i use the blender(damp) it looks cakey. I will normally use the Kat Von D lock it tattoo foundation but it will cake so easily and its very noticeable. I have combo skin so i have matte and dewy foundations. I find that dewy looks abit more better but the coverage doesnt work because i dont want to look dewy if you can just see my acne/redness. Im thinking about going into sephora sometime this month and getting the Too Faced Born This Way foundation because it gives a nice finish and seems to not look cakey in the tutorials ive seen. So my questions are..Can anybody please suggest some tips on some primers or moisturizers that wont make my makeup look cakey. What are some foundations that give a more dewy look but with full coverage? Whats the best way to layer foundation for a more full coverage look without it caking? if u can help, thanks!

Oil blend vs 100% single oils (Argan in particular)
So for the past couple of years I've been using the 100% Argan oil daily and my skin loves it!  I started with Argan when my skin got increasingly sensitive because I knew Argan was one of the top ways to get your skin to absorb maximum quantities of Vitamin E, which had historically be a great healer for my skin.  Now my skin is still very sensitive, but is willing to tolerate some other products so I have been wondering about whether it made sense to either replace Argan oil entirely with a blended oil in my regime, or use a different oil in connection with it to get maximum benefits.  Other than being sensitive (and allergic to almonds), my skin tends to be a bit dry, particularly during the height of summer and winter when central air systems blast, but not so dry the rest of the time that I'd classify it as truly dry.  I'm also in my thirties and although I've aged well, most women in my family don't so I'd love to maximize my anti-aging benefits.   I'd wondered about adding something like Sunday Riley's Juno, Algenists' oil, marula oil, Kate Somerville's Dilo, Nude's oils, or one of the other options that people with sensitive skin love.  Any suggestions or thoughts???
