I have very oily acne prone skin, what is the best setting spray to use? I've tried the Urban Decay Deslick with little results. Also what is a good setting powder to use over the Kat Von D lock it foundation and the kat von d powder?
I've recently heard how facial serums are very important in the skin care routine. How does everyone feel about them? Are they necessary? Do you use a serum? if so, which one? I tried a sample of Sunday Riley's good genes, it burned at first but left my skin looking amazing, but not for $105 :/ I have extremely dry skin and have to moisturize thoroughly.
I'm 13 and have just been able to start wearing make up and I am totally CLUELESS!!! Am I able to walk in Sephora and be like "Can you show me how to apply makeup correctly?" But I feel like they would get annoyed because I want to know how to apply most things such as Eyeliner, Eyeshadow, Bronzer, Mascara ETC. What should I do?
I'm having a hard time finding a foundation with those characteristics. I'd like to find a foundation that has a good shade range for yellow/golden medium skin that is long lasting for long work days. I was recommended the hourglass immaculate foundation but it was honestly too powdery and cakey even with a beauty blender and the 'yellow' shades were still too pink for me. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Alright so I don't know what the trick is to find a proper concealer or for that matter any foundation for my skin tone. I had a beauty consultant who helped find me a tarte concealer but I find its really heavy and it looks a little darker than my tinted moisturizer itself. Really confused on how to nail getting correct products for my skin tone. The two products im using are: smashbox camera ready BB cream (light/medium) tarte maracuja concealer (tan) Do have heard that your concealer can be a shade lighter or two?
Hello beautiful ladies! I'm a rookie trying to learn how to not look like a clown, so I need advice from you pros. For some reason every foundation I try looks heavy, unnatural on me, and every powder looks cakey. But, recently I tried a sample of Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets All in One BB cream in medium and it looked gorgeous. I have never tried a BB cream before and this one just looked perfect in my skin. However, after a couple of hours my face started to look oily. So, I figured that perhaps with a good translucent matte powder I can get the finish I'm lookimg for. But with so much variety, how to choose the right one without overspending in trials? Therefore, I would highly appreciate your advice on what translucent matte, non cakey powder may work for me over this bbb cream. Some info about my skin type: I have oily acne prone skin with some scarring in the cheeks, so go non comedogenic and good coverage are a plus. The color of my skin is very fair. Thank you so much in advance!
Hi im Jen and im only 15 when i startd noticing that i have lines under my eyes. Is it because im not sleeping enough because im in high school with a whole bunch of assigments/tests to do/study for. I really want to get rid or reduce the look of them. Everytime i look at the mirror i feel that i look old and ugly with them. Please someone, can you reccomend me any products like eye creams to help reduce or better yet get rid of them!
I am seeking a new foundation, I recently bought Kat Von D's lock it foundation. I do not like how it makes me look cakey and brings attention to my dry spots. I have used Clinque Even Better for about 2 years, I was happy with the coverage, just not the way it made my face feel sticky. Do you have any reccomendations for other foundations that Sephora carries? I'm looking for moderate- to full coverage but more natural looking. Thanks.
Recently i decided to change my powder and i tried diorskin forever compact.I don't use heavy foundation only a bb cream and a powder i also have oily acne prone skin.The powder was pretty good but i think after a few hours it made my skin a bit oily and also it is very pricey for me.Could anyone recommend a powder for full coverage for oily type skin and with less money THANK YOU
I am considering trying the Philosophy line. I am 51 years old and have combination skin and no deep wrinkles yet. I tend to get little blocked pores on my forehead so have to stick with a moisturizer than is non-comedogenic. I have looked at all of the information written about Philosophy and dont' see anything stating whether or not it is. Should I assume this means the products are not? Thanks
Hi, Okay so im fairly new to wearing makeup and just bought myself the smashbox bb tinted moisturizer although when I applied it my skin looked really dry and it didn't set in properly im not using any primer, but was wondering what can I do to make it look smoother and also wether I can use my own moisturizer before I use the tinted moisturizer.. im thinking it may help? or is it a bad idea
I am wondering how the results could possibly give me an accurate match. A foundation the color of my freckles would be just awful and one the color of my unfreckled skin would be far too pale. I prefer my foundation to get rid of any ruddiness and not cover but rather enhance. Should I even bother going to get the color IQ done?
Can you recommend a product for all over face that produces a golden shimmer (microfine glitter) that would look good with a tan? I am looking at some luminizers, but reviews say the effect is more silvery or glowing instead of sparkly. Again, I prefer a powder that is not actually a bronzer so that I cam wear it over bronzer or wear it even if I don't have a tan. Thank you
I have a very oily t-zone and sometimes acne prone skin. I use the clinique 3-step process and have been using their acne solutions foundation but lately i've realized that by the end of my school day (around 1pm) my makeup looks like its melting and i am constantly dabbing my face because it looks like i am sweating but i'm not. I don't know if this is due to my makeup or due to the fact that i don't use primer or a setting spray. What do you recommend I do?

Hi everyone, I recently bought a BITE lipstick in the colour Quinta. It is a beautiful shade on me and I love how pigmented the lipstick is. It is the first lipstick I have bought and it was recommended to me by a Sephora associate. In the past I have bought Buxom lip creams, Sugar balms and some other glosses, but I wanted to dive into buying a lipstick I've worn the lipstick a few times and I have to say I'm disappointed The lipstick is really sinking into my lips (into the lines on my lips) and showing any small flakes I might have. It is winter and I live in Ottawa, Canada (god it has been so cold here this winter!), so it may be possible that my lips are a little bit dry, but it isn't anything out of the ordinary, they aren't chapped. I also put on Smith's Rosebud Salve before bed to keep them moisturized. I see that the reviews for BITE lipsticks are really positive, but I'm wondering if this is a problem I'm having with the lipstick itself or a lip problem. Is it common for all lipsticks to sink into lip lines? Is there any sort of other prep I should be doing before applying the lipstick? Any advice would be appreciated as I'm thinking of taking the lipstick back for something that may be a bit more moisturizing. Thanks
Hello! I was at the sephora store looking at the kat von D stuff, and was looking at the concealers and was told that medium 22 concealer is my color. But i forgot to ask the girl what would my foundation shade is for the kat von D foundation! HELP D:
Hi, I need a good recommendation for a powder highlighter. I have only used cream or stick highlighter/luminizers, and need to switch to a powder form. I use quite a bit of foundation and concealer to achieve "perfect" skin and it seems like my current highlighters don't layer well over foundations. I have medium-to-light skin that is yellow/olive toned I'd like something that is slightly shimmery. Thank you!
My beloved Stila is not so chemical safe and I'm now worried about my MUFE foundation and slowly but surely switching everything over to be safer. Tarte is the closest that matches my skin tone (deathly pallor) but really seems to be just slightly too orange on my skin after an hour or so.
