I always knew that my skin is oily, but I think my skin is also dehydrated....because I rarely drink water.. heheh. I did a search and a lot of people recommended drinking more water (duh), Clinique Moisture Surge, and Korres Greek Yogurt Moisturizing Face Cream. Is there anything else that you can recommend?
What brush would you recommend for crisp lines? I use the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade and the #12 brush. But I find that the brush is still thick and creates rough edges. I would love a very crisp, thin angled brush to make application smoother. I would love to check out any recommendations. xo
Hi everyone! I recently received an email from Sephora that Kat Von D's Rehab Priming Elixir has been discontinued, and I am just heartbroken. I don't think anything else goes with the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation as much as it did. Does anyone know why it went out of stock or if it will ever be back in stock? I'm afraid that I'm just gonna have to suck it up and find a new holy grail primer. I have oily and acne prone skin. I have tried many primers out there. Benefit's The Porefessional and Too Faced Primed & Poreless- makes ANY makeup melt off of my face and I think it feels like grease. Smashbox More Than Primer Blemish Control feels a little sticky on my skin. Bareminerals Prime Time oil control primer is okay. Make Up For Ever's HD Microperfecting primer is good. But neither of these did what the Rehab Priming Elixir has done for me. Can anyone recommend something similar?
I would like a product that is $50 or under. I have oily acne-prone skin so something that is hypoallergenic, perhaps natural, and oil free would be great. The main obstacle for me trying to search for a good night cream is that I want to find something that has healing power to deal with acne scarring, current acne, and healing acne. Thanks!
Most of the supplements from HUM have high ratings on this site, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried any of them? They're pretty new on here and I usually take the reviews here with a grain of salt. In general, I don't sit on either side of the fence when it comes to supplements and if they work or not. I'd love to hear anyone's experience with these - favorable or not so much. Although I'm interested in most of them, I'm particularly intrigued by the Runway Ready set and the Daily Cleanse.
is this stuff good to use in hot weather? I'm going to Miami in a few weeks I want to find something to fill in my eyebrows that wont melt off and will look natural under the sun. Any tips for my makeup during this trip? i'd really appreciate it. I bought Laura Mercier smooth finish flawless fluid for when i go, what setting powder would be a good choice to use? any really good primers or setting sprays recommended? I've used urban decays was never really impressed by it. :/
I am in the Army and want to do a Pin-up photo shoot for my husband before I leave for 5 months of training. What are some good techniques, products, ideas on how I should do my makeup? I think I can do the lips (thanks to the free VIB rouge BITE lipstick) and already have natural curly black hair and tan skin but I feel that I need alot further guidance on getting the smooth thick makeup look and "bedroom or cat eye' effect Thank You
I feel bad even writing this...and I'm not trying to offend any of the girls that work for Sephora. I just want to know if anyone else has had a bad experience with a makeover at Sephora. I went there yesterday for foundation, concealer and blush. She offered to try some products on me. I don't know if it was her or the lighting, but the concealer she had used (becca creamy concealer) was SO ORANGE on my skin. I am super pale, and I don't know why she thought it looked good. Then she tried a MUFE concealer under my eyes, and it was ghostly and all you could see was my purple bags. Next we moved on to foundation, and she still couldn't get a color right. So now I am totally clues as to what skin tone/IQ I am :-( A little disappointing. Do you know if they take makeup training classes like MAC does, or is it just basic application? Thanks for any feedback.
I am 47 years old. I have very large pores on my cheeks and redness in that area as well. And it's pretty oily. Is there anything that can help with that? Any suggestions for skincare and foundation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I've been having trouble finding the right foundation to fit my skin. All I'm looking for is all day full coverage non fading and waterproof foundation, if I could have some help finding some good products along that line that'd be great thanks
Can the Living Proof Prime Style Extender SPRAY be used on dry hair? I normally was my hair at night and when I curl my hair the next day they fall like a few hours later and that isn't going to help when i'm starting Cosmetology school and its a 7 1/2 hour school day and then i have to work. So can i put the Prime Style Extender balm or gel whatever it is in my hair at night before blow drying and then in the morning use the Prime Style Extender SPRAY before curling? I have long thick hair and I need my curls to last and not fall out 2 hours later so it looks like I didn't do anthing
Hi, I struggle with very stubborn skin, my face is extremely oil prone, but if i use to harsh of product it will also peel yet still be very oily, anyways I was using Cliniques Stay Matte Powder Foundation it seemed to soak up excess oil and not cause alot of oil on my face, but now I see that it is no longer being sold. Does anyone have a recommendation for a powder foundation that will keep my face as matte and not oily as possible?? I also use face primer too and that helps a little bit..... Thanks!
I have "hard water" at home and it dries out my hair. No matter how much or how long I leave my conditioner in, it seem that my hair is so dry. It frizzes and also creates a lot of split ends. I do not use any heat for my hair (hairdryer, curler, straightener, etc). What shampoo should I be using to help with this?
I use Guerlain's Lingerie de Peau liquid foundation and on lazy days the LDP BB. I usually use the BB with my fingers (which I hate, but that's what the instructions say) and the foundation with my MAC 190 (flat domed synthetic brush). I've read good things about MAC 187 (stippling brush) which I also have but I just can't see how that works. I have very good results with the 190, but it seems that this style brush is falling out of favor and I'm not sure why. Is there another good brush I can try or should I just stick with the 190 if it's working for me - no streaks, perfect even application, etc. I'm always looking out for the "next best thing" and I guess I'm curious as to what that is.
I'm having so many problems with lipstick application. Every time I put on lipstick it always settles into my lip lines. I prime my lips with the Bite Beauty Lip Primer and then I line my lips with a lip liner and apply my lipstick of choice and it still settles into my lip lines. I exfoliate my lips but it still doesn't help. What can I do to stop this from happening? Please help.
I love the Dior Forever Powder however when the product is nearing the end it crumbles and the compact itself breaks on the hinge. This is the 3rd time I've purchased it, it has happened every time. Although I love the powder the packaging has left me frustrated. If I wear the 030, what would I wear in the Dolce and Gabbana Foundation Powder Compact, am thinking of giving it a try.
Hey guys! I'm hitting close to pan on this blush (i've had it for YEARS). Sin from Illamasqua was discontinued sometime in mid to late 2000's but i'm holding on to hope that I can find something as close to it as possible. I thought I had a couple but they don't quite have the same impact. I was looking at Marc Jacob's new blush line but the one I was eyeing was more magenta. I tried Temptalia and they don't even have a record of it, LOL! So, HELP!
I have super oily skin, and I hate that by lunch my makeup is pretty much melted off.I have a few big events coming up and I want to look my very best for them and not have to worry about reapplying multiple times. I would like something with staying power that has pretty decent coverage because I do have blemishes on my chin. thanks so much!
