Foundation
What is the difference between foundation for yellow undertones and foundation for the pink undertone? I have rosacea and I currently have makeup forever face and body in #32 and I feel like it doesn't quite match me that well......would the one for pink undertones work better for me?

Foundation for sensitive skin for cool/pink complexion (SPF Allergy)
I have an allergy to anything labelled SPF that prevents me from using a lot of modern makeup products (I think it's great for health... just not for mine, unfortunately). I am searching for a great long-lasting foundation with good cover that won't give me a reaction. Sensitive skin suggestions are great, but a lack of SPF coverage is a must. I have dark brown hair, brown eyes, and a cool complexion (a step above fair) with a rosy undertone.   I use and love Makeup Forever's concealer and love it but found their foundation to not give me enough cover and not last very long before requiring reapplication. I was using Mac's liquid Face & Body Foundation (In N2) for a while and I liked it but I want to upgrade to more coverage.   Extra gratitude if you can suggest an animal-friendly/vegan product!!!

Acne Face Washes
I have acne prone skin which has been a problem for me ever since I was a teen. My skin type  is combination, but I would say it leans mostly toward the oily side. I've tried many face washes and cleansers, but non have seemed to work for me. I' am trying to find a face wash that will not only rid me of acne, but diminish my dark spots and help control my oiliness. Is there any products you think might work for me? I'm almost out of faith!

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!!

Hi Larrianne,   While there isn't a truly plum shade in this blush just yet, I'd recommend the 03 Rose With Thorns, as it's a mauve-y neutral. I hope that helps! see post
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!

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.
