I am looking for a peachy pink lip color.
I am very picky about lip colors and lipstick textures. What I want is a beautiful lip balm in a peachy pink color. Not too dark , but not too light  either. I could really use some ideas. Thank you for your time.

What kind of makeup does she have on that makes her eyes so big?
Watch the first few seconds of the clip and then fastforward to the last few seconds. Notice one half the face is without makeup and then compare the eye size. I think it's heavy eyeliner coupled with heavy eye ink liner.  I just can't get how she made her pupil look so big too.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOrTQ9TU-d8

Advice for an eye cream for day
I currently use Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 eye cream and am finding that I am getting quite a bit of transfer from my mascara underneath my eyes, likely due to the product not fully absorbing.  This makes my under eye area look so dark!  I have tried using less product with the same result.  I have some signs of aging in the eye area and want to keep it at bay.  I am wondering if anyone has found a lighter eye cream to use during the day that would alleviate this problem, or if I should just go with waterproof mascara.   xoxo, Angie

How do you build up Dior Forever liquid foundation to full coverage?
I have Dior's Forever liquid foundation, which is supposed to be buildable to full coverage, but I can't seem to get it past light coverage. I use a sponge, and don't want to switch to a brush or use my fingers. Am I supposed to wait for a layer to dry, then reapply? If so, how long does this foundation take to dry in order to apply another layer?    I really like this foundation, but I'm used to wearing foundations that require only one application. What is the best way to get this foundation to its fullest coverage?   Thank you!

Best moisturizer for dry irritated flakes on oily skin before applying foundation?
Hi, I have predominately oily skin (T-zone) but numerous dry, flaky, and irritated patches from acne medication and healing acne, especially around my mouth. I use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion before I apply liquid foundation and concealer, but I'm wondering if there is something better out there to reduce the flakiness.    Cerave irritates my skin further, and I can't exfoliate much due to the already irritated skin. I'm happy with the foundation and concealer, it's just the moisturizer I think I can improve on.   Thank you!

Sunday Riley/Drunk Elephant?
Is it just my computer or are both Sunday Riley and Drunk Elephant not on the Sephora website anymore? I've checked the brands list and can't find either brand on it, and I've searched as well and nothing comes up. I was just looking at these yesterday, and I've restarted my computer a few times but still nothing. I may just cry if this is widespread!

Best highlighters and matte bronzers for NC42-45 skin?
Hello,   I am having a hard time finding highlighters that don't look too ashy or too dark, and matte bronzers that aren't too orange or too muddy on my skin. I go as pale as NC42 in the winter, and tan up to an NC45 in the summer, and I know a lot of mixed-race, lighter-skinned black girls (like me), hispanic, indian/desi and east asian ladies also fall into this complexion range.   Do you have any product recommendations?    THANKS!
