What is the best powder to set your foundation with? Both loose and pressed? 
Hi, im just starting out to wear makeup and id really like to know what are the essentials when you first start using makeup? Ive bought a couple stuff from sephora like the cover fx concealer but id still like to know the essentials and what is the routine for putting on makeup. I have sensitive skin so i dont know what kind of makeup to use I really dont want to use foundation i usually use bb cream lol
  In a few months I'm going to be doing a very long haul (14 hour) flight. One of the things I'm really looking forward to is settling down in my seat, having a glass of champagne,  giving myself a mini-facial and trying stuff from my recent chic week haul to keep my skin nicely hydrated throughout the flight.  I've also got a few simple makeup things so I'll look reasonably decent when I disembark. I think I've got it  all sussed - it's pretty much all foils and samples so I'm traveling pretty light even though I've got lots of stuff.  I'd love to hear any other suggestions though - TSA approved please!   So, in order of usage, I've got: Ole Henriksen Vit C Cleansing Wipes When Whenever You Travel gel fiber mask Shiseido Benefiance Eye Mask Dior One Essential Serum (foil) Tarte Maracuja Oil Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream L'Occitane hand cream and lip balm Single use moisturizing eye drops Then, for freshening up and getting ready to disembark: Lavanila deodorant  Amele freshening up wipes Dry shampoo Teeth and mouthwash stuff (not pictured) Ole Henriksen Vit C Brightening Serum (foil) Murad day cream (foil) Smashbox primer Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Couple basic eye shadows (not pictured) Lancome black eye pencil Chanel mascara YSL Rebel Nudes glossy stains (foil)
 Hi guys,   I recently got the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation in Rich Chestnut 5C1.  I think this shade matches my skin but I'm not sure. I wear MUFE HD foundation in 178. I tried Estee lauder double wear in Amber Honey 5N2 and that was too orange for me and I tried it in Rich Cocoa 6C1 and that was too dark for me . Do you think this is the correct shade I should be wearing? 
I have begun trying to contour my cheekbones and nose as I have recently really gotten into make up . I have all the supplies necessary including Sephora's great contour brush set. My nose contouring looks great, making my nose look long and thin. However my cheekbone contouring typically looks like I did nothing or just a stripe of dark color that does not look like a shade. Any advise on how to get a noticeable difference without feeling like I have a huge stripe on my face?
I was recently allergy tested at my allergy dr.  They did the patch test (true test) where they put the patches on your back.  I tested positive for parabens, fragrances & balsam of peru.  Those things are in practically everything!!  Luckily I'm not terribly symptomatic.  I was mainly wanting to find out what face skincare/cosmetics ingredients I may be allergic to, since I've been keeping a log of potential problem ingredients.  My skin is acne prone and sensitive.  It has a tendency to get red and irritated looking (which I thought was just due to acne, but now know that allergies may be playing a role too).    I don't really use skin lotions (aside from sunscreen), body butters, etc.  I'll wear fragrances/perfumes every so often, and haven't noticed any reactions.  I use hand cream somewhat frequently and every so often I'll get a rash, but it isn't too often.    My question is, how closely should I adhere to not using products with parabens, fragrances, & balsam of peru??  I'm thinking I should just avoid certain products if I notice a reaction on my body.  But for my face, maybe I should completely avoid those ingredients?    What about shampoos & hair products?  My scalp doesn't really get itchy, but I do tend to notice my hair falls out pretty easily.  Could that be due to an allergic reaction?  Isn't fragrance in almost all high-quality shampoos??   Any help is appreciated!  Thank you!
Hi All !!   I once received a sample 3-step package from clinique which came with a soap, another like a toner, and a lotion. I am not sure the exact names of what I used but I loved it. Is there a big package ...or are they sold separately ? Any help !
What is the best eye makeup remover for very sensitive, dry skin (only around the eyes is it dry)? After a week of taking my eye makeup off, my eyes are very sore, especially the tops.
Which Dior liquid foundation has fuller coverage than the rest of the line?  It's been a while since I used a Dior foundation (even then, it was a light coverage powder) and I need a matte finish for my oily skin.  Any suggestions?
I just discovered that greige eyeshadows compliment my green eyes and auburn hair light skin !  DESPERATELY seeking help in putting combos together, please include brands and shade names because i absolutely suck at putting looks together !  Ty to all who reply !
What would you recommend for summer foundation or bb cream or tinited moisturizer for everyday. I am oily/combo skin, medium skin tone.  
I have sensitive skin on my neck and chest - sometimes (especially after showers) I get an unsightly red rash of hives there which takes a few hours to fade.  I'd like to try using a moisturizer on the area to reduce the inflammation.  Also, since I live in Southern California, I'd really like to use something with SPF.  I prefer to use lightweight moisturizers on my body (anything heavier tends to break me out).  Do you have any recommendations?
Hi I have a question I was wondering what the difference between eyebrow powder and wax is.? I have a few shaping eyebrow kits the Sephora collection one and the brow envy kit, Which I love that kit, I also received a sample of the Anastasia brow powder duo which I love as well. Im into trying to get the best product for a good looking brow. I noticed too faced had a new wax called bulletproof brows which I was interested in buying, because on Sephora the Anastasia pomade is all sold out. So I was just wondering what the difference was and which is always best to go with.?

I'm 31 and looking for recommendation for a skin care line/regimen. I have fine lines in my forehead and enlarged pores in my nose and chin areas.

Hey girls,   So I am running low on the foil packet samples of the Amore Pacific Natural Protector sunscreen. I had got them as part of my skincare routine and I have found that they don't carry it in Canada. I don't honestly want to purchase it online and would like to consider a sunscreen option that is a dupe of this ?. The price is also a bit much as well but it's not the biggest deal. What I love the most about it is that it helps control oil/sweat although I do hear it can oxidize foundation/tinted moisturizer.   So if anyone knows of a dupe option for this product that can be found in Canadian stores please let me know. 
Im looking for any easy application that won't irritate my eyes. I currently use Mac and the base primer irritates my eyes. I need something natural but can make my eyes pop as well for someone in their 40's.   Please advise......
Do you recommend to use components ( cleanser, toner, day and night cream) from the same line in skin care regimen for better synergy of the active ingredients, or do you find more typical to mix it up to better customize and tailor to specific needs? Thank you!

I'm looking for something that will help with chapped and sore lips.  Don't want anything that is too greasy. But want it to work. Can anyone help?
Hello   I have heard so many good things about the reformulated BB skin foundation stick & would like to try it but I don't know what color I need. I was skin IQ matched in Sepohora with 1R09, but the product doesn't come up when I try to find my matches. Can anyone help me? Like I said I was matched 1R09, wear UD Naked Fluid in 7.5 & BM Ready in Golden Tan (which is a bit light).   While I LOVE the UD, I'm wanting something a bit more portable & easier to use for an upcoming trip to the UK.
