I've tried numerous products, probably meant for much younger skin according to the reviews. Looking for something to conceal redness, dark under eye, fine line (that won't settle into the lines making them look worse). Something that will blur a little to make my skin look a little younger and fresher.
I have always had great skin, But I am now 61 and the lines and wrinkles are starting to show up around my mouth from smoking in my youth. (Smokers another reason to beware!) I realize that I need products for my age. What primers and make up base should I use to hide my wrinkles. Any other ideas? Thanks!

I have extremely dry skin. Does anyone have any recommendations for a foundation/bb cream/tinted moisturizer that is light weight but with some coverage and that is very moisturizing? I prefer a dewy/radiant finish. Thanks!
I have VERY oily acne prone skin, mostly in the t zone especially my nose area, I've tried everything from different cleansers, moisturizers, primers, setting sprays, and foundation & powders that are made for oily skin and nothing has worked for me. Currently I'm using the Cetaphil oil control foam wash, neutrogena rapid clear acne defense face lotion, and the cetaphil oil control moisturizer. For my makeup routine I use the Becca Every-matte poreless priming perfector, Tarte amazonian clay liquid foundation, followed by the tarte amazonian clay airbrush powder, then i use blush and bronzer and the Maybelline shine free loose translucent powder, then I top everything off with the Kat Von D lock n load makeup setting spray. With this routine I still get very oily within about an hour of doing my makeup. I don't want to have to retouch my makeup throughout the day or blot if I don't absolutely have to. Does anybody have any suggestions for either my skincare or makeup routine? I'm looking for options that are not super expensive either. Thank you in advance!
Hi beauties! I'm in desperate need of an eye cream that targets dark circles. I have combo skin, but my under eyes tend to be pretty dry, especially if I forget to smooth some of my moisturizer there. I don't have any fine lines at this point but I'd like something that's anti-aging as well. My dark circles, are truly almost black, with sort of gray/blue undertones. I don't have sensitive skin but my eyes are easily irritated to anything with any kind of smell. I've been looking at Clinique All About Eyes or the Even Better Dark Spot Corrector for eyes, which I have for skin and do like. I don't have any problems with puffiness, I just feel like the skin under my eyes is like super delicate and really thin. I wear make-up when I work and if I go out, but I don't wear it if say, I'm going to the supermarket and I'm tired of getting the "are u ok miss?" from people. I'm open to any brand really, Clinique is just one that I'm familiar with. Please Help!
I have sparse eyebrows and they are all white. I have used many different eye brow creams and pencils. Non, so far, have given me that natural real look. The other day I saw something that covers both hair and skin but now I can't seem to locate in Sephora. What would you suggest. Thanks for your help! Arlene
I have fine hair, but a lot of it. I would like it to look thicker, but also be moisturized on the bottoms. My scalp can get oily, but my ends get dry. I am looking for shampoo, conditioner, and styling products. Any recommendations? Thank you!
I have combination skin and I want a foundation that will cover my imperfections is long lasting but can still give me that healthy glow? I don't like the very matte look but i still want the healthy skin glow and have a medium coverage without being shiny. My skin is sensitive in the way that i breakout with red under skin hard zits when i wear heavy makeup so i prefer a foundation that is lightweight but can still get the job done.
Hi, I'm eighteen and have very dry skin that is moderately acne prone (although you can't tell in the picture.) I have very pale skin with a slight yellow undertone, and I need help find a hydrating foundation (preferably with buildable coverage) that is non-acnegenic and won't make me look orange. thank you! Here is a link to a picture of me
I have very, very fair sensitive skin and naturally blonde hair & eyebrows. What colours would you recommend for a daytime eyeshadow look? (I work in a conservative environment, so I can't rock the bold colours at the office). I also have very sensitive skin and need something that won't irritate my skin. Feel free to suggest brands too! Thanks!!!
I have severe ingrown hairs and scars on my stomach under my belly button. It is very embarrassing, I sometimes need to use a light concealer to cover them. Need recommendations on scar creams that can be used on the body to maybe lighten them And something to help with the ingrown hairs.
I currently wear Bare Minerals original foundation in Light, but I would like to purchase Estee Lauder's double wear stay-in place makeup. According to the color IQ tool, I was matched to Rattan 2W2, however the descriptions for Rattan (2W2) and Dawn (2W1) sound very similar. I was hoping someone could explain the difference between the two shades? Thank you in advance for your help!
So, I have a night skin care routine that I'm happy with. Right now it's Cleanse, Tone, EL ANR, OH Sheer Transformation, OH Invigorating Night Gel, + random eye cream (haven't found the one yet for eye cream). My question is, do you combine sleeping masks with the skin care you're already happy with, or do you cleanse, put a sleeping mask on, and forgo the rest of your routine? And has anyone had a negative experience from overnight masks? Right now I have in my stash deluxe samples of: I want to take these samples for a spin, but I don't want to throw my skin into a tailspin from a dramatic change in my routine.

hi!! <3 guys i really, really want to wear foundation. I never get to wear it because my skin is dry. I've tried exfoliators, lotions, anything you can suggest ive tried. and nothing. When i put my foundation on it doesnt look blended into my skin. you can see flakyness and you can still see my imperfections.

I think i would be the happiest person alive if someone can help me out. Thankssss
Hey guys! So I need some help. I have a bad case of dark undereye circles, and have no clue how to make them go away (or get lighter). I got them while finishing my Bachelor in Animation (lots of all-nighters, etc), and so far have only been covering them up with makeup. I now have some more free time, have been getting my 8 (sometimes 9 lol) hours of beaty sleep. They have slowly been getting better, but I would love some advice on cremes or serums I can use on my undereye are to make my dark circles go away. Cheers! *** I would like to point out that I HAVE tried the GlamGlow Mud treatment, and that was a no-go for me***
I’ve been working on simplifying my makeup for a rather active trip I have coming up. I have no problem switching out my foundation for a CC cream or skipping the liquid liner in favor of an extra coat of mascara, but I keep on running into a roadblock with my lip color. I simply don’t leave the house without a fully-lined, totally opaque, semi-matte red lip. But I can’t help but feel it’s a little inappropriate for where I’m going and what I’m doing. I’ve been looking at things like the Tarte Lip Tints or Clinique Chubby Sticks, but I can’t seem to wrap my head around the concept of Not Lipstick. What I’m looking for is something long-wearing, non-drying, red (pinks and I have never gotten along), but a bit more natural and low-maintenance. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! What I usually wear: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb Besame Lipstick in Cherry Red Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Hellbent
Hey everyone, So I am in need of a good recommendation for Tinted Moisturizer that can be found at Sephora. I've been using the Wet'N'Wild one that you can find at Walmart. It's a great product longevity wise, coverage wise but the color selection is very poor and doesn't work well for me. So I am on the hunt for a new Tinted Moisturizer that has Light to Medium buildable coverage. It'd have to be great for Combo skin and have a much wider shade range. I'd also like it to have decent longevity as well.

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 !
