Any suggestions on what to do when your nude lipstick is too beige or washes you out. I'm olive toned and have the Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipstick that is too nude. Would love to alter it somehow to tone it down.
I want to buy the one that will best prevent my undereye from creasing. I dont wear eyeshadows really. But I ALWAYS need concealer to cover my dark circles.Which of the 3 UD Eyeshadow Primers should I buy?
So I have some medium-dark scarring and slightly rough skin along my my jawline that I can partially coverup by using a good primer and then my foundation, but I definitely need something more. Does anyone have suggestions for a good concealer that will stay smooth and not settle into the few rough spots I have, but something that provides long lasting full coverage for something more than just a blemish? Thanks!
Hi, I would like a restart on my beauty products - from skin care to make-up. I am almost 40 and need to start using some products to help hide/repair aging and wrinkles, etc... plus just also want/need new makeup. Can you give me an idea of how much it would cost to get this kind of set up?
Ok. I need a NEW makeover. Please make more feminine/girly and new. I have brown hair, hazel eyes and light color skin. I'm on the left. Couldn't find a better picture. Also what would you do with my hair (cut/style)?? I don't have bangs anymore. Please help me!? I really need help badly... (pictures would help some)
Is there any product that can help clear acne scars on my back? They make me incredibly self-conscious and I honestly didn't go to the beach this summer because of them. The scars are spread all over my back and are a darkish brown color and I would love to hear advice or recommendations from anyone that has also experienced this. Thank you!
I was given a sample of each one. It wasn't a lot, I'm guessing due to how expensive the products are. I loved both but didn't have enough to wear over several days. Was hoping someone/everyone can give me their thought, opinions, and likes/dislikes regarding the two. I need to make a decision before my $20 VIB coupon expires on December 16th. Thanks in advance!
HI I was wondering about what product I should use for contouring. I have darkish olive skin and its normal( not too oily or too dry). What should I use? I hoping for something natural looking. Also do I get my eyebrow to look thick and full? What product should I use? Again something natural
Hello! Can anyone give me some advice on this issue: I've been to the store on 3 different occasions asking to be shade match and get a sample of a couple foundations I'm considering for purchase. First time, I was talked out of both of those and directed to a different brand and was given a sample. Ok, I trust the SAs expertise, but after a few wears I just didn't love that product so headed back for attempt #2. I was shade matched this time, and told (for the first time ever) that I'm neutral (um, what? your ColorIQ begs to differ on multiple tries, but ok) and was directed to purchase one of the brands that I'm interested in. Given that I don't want to purchase/return a used product, I left empty-handed and feeling lame. Third try....got back to the right undertones (yellow) but a shade or 2 too light, again wouldn't give a sample and instead applied to my face and told me to wander around the store to see what I thought. It wasn't until I left (empty-handed) and got into natural light that I could clearly see my face was much lighter than the rest of me. I'm not a sample hog, and I do have every intention of buying....and I explained all three times that I'd rather take home a sample or 2 of different products and come back knowing I'm purchasing something that works for me. I'm not overly aggressive by nature, but all 3 times I have clearly stated that I'd like a take home sample of foundation X and Y, and was told, "Oh, just buy it now and you can return it if you don't like it. That's what the policy is for." Um....no. Sephora does have a very generous return policy, but I'm not into unnecessary waste. Just give a girl a fricken' sample already!!! What else should I do/say? This whole thing has really turned me quite off. (p.s this is my first time posting, sorry if it's in the wrong subject board)
I've been hearing a lot of buzz over face oils so I've been meaning to give it a try. Currently deciding between... Josie Maran Argan Oil Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil Tarte Maracuja Oil Has anyone tried any of the three? Pros? Cons?
I am 43. I have used MAC Studio Fix for years as I have oily skin and large pores. Now I have wrinkles as well and I feel the Studio Fix is getting cakey on my skin. Any other recommendations for a foundation that has light/moderate coverage (to cover redness and spots) but won't look thick and cakey on an oily, old face with large pores? Thanks!!
I was wondering but searched and did not find anything here about it (not surprising, it's not sold at Sephora, unfortunately). if not, what is your hand care routine to keep your hands soft and smooth? Do you have one? Any great products you can recommend?
Okay so I just learned I need sunscreen even for just riding in the car....who knew? Not me. Okay so I have a body sunscreen I absolutely love that smells like raspberries and candy that at I will be wearing for my body now but out I need major suggestions and questions answered for my face sunscreen. 1. Is it best to use a facial sunscreen separate from make up and moisturizer or will those work just as well? 2. I think I have acne prone skin, I haven't seen a derm yet (appointment scheduled) but I do break out pretty easily. i have somewhere in between normal to oily skin I assume. And I want something that doesn't smell like sunscreen. I hate that chemically scent. If it is a seperate sunscreen or moisturizer with sunscreen I want it to be something that will work nicely with makeup not something think gross and oily that will make my face feel clogged and make up slip off. Any suggestions? 3. What else does your suggestions do? What about the product or sunscreen makes you love it so much other than it just protecting your skin?
I've recently invested in a skincare routine, after years of never really using anything. I'm 27, and around 23-24 I started breaking out a ton! I have acne scars and combo oily skin. These are the products that II purchased: philosophy pure mattness cleaner, shiiseido pureness toner, camu camu vitamins c serum, OTC acne cream, korres yogurt moisturizer, and Lancôme visionarire. Can someone put these in the correct order for use? Also, should I add anything?
I have the beauty blender and I absolutely love it! However I don't want to purchase the Beauty Blender Sponge Cleanser. Its too expensive in my opinion. Any easier methods to clean it. I cant get the stains off the foundation off the bottom of my beauty blender.
I am going to the Caribbeans with my boyfriend in a little more than a month. In anticipation of sunny beach days, I would like to add extra sun protection to my normal routine. My current everyday bare-bone routine includes: Murad Hydrating Toner FAB ultra repair cream Clinique CC cream Benefit Watts Up or Stay Don't Stray (depends on the my mood, to cover up my under eye shadows) Bare Minerals original mineral veil Bare Minerals Faux Tan The Clinique CC cream is only SPF 30 and the Skinceuticals tinted sunscreen that I wanted to add is SPF 50. Should I add the sunscreen before the CC cream or after the CC cream? Occasionally when I have the extra time, I do add apply a primer before I put on the CC cream. If I do use the primer, should the sunscreen come before or after the primer? Currently still debating on a primer. I am leaning heavily towards the Hourglass veil mineral primer, but I am playing with the Hourglass No. 28 primer and other Benefit options. Sorry for the wall of text. I would really like to know what you ladies think.
I use Argan oil everyy day and yet the dry patches on my forehead have not improved. I even moisterize every day. I want to use a mask but I'm afraid of overdrying my face even more. Can anyone recommend a face mask to help get rid of flaky skin?My nose is a weird rough texture as well :/ I've tried the Origins 10 min moisture mask and I dont like it at all! Its more greasy than moisterizing.
I feel silly asking this question but....how would you use Josie Maran matchmaker foundation and Josie Maran argan illuminizer? Would you use the illuminizer, let dry and use the foundation? Thanks in advance for the advice!
Hey guys! So I'm 17 years old and I'm about to get a mole removed from my right cheek. It's a medium sized mole, it lays basically flat, dark brown, and I've had it since I was a toddler. Since I've had it so long, I'm getting a deep excision to get the roots out as well, which means there will be a few stitches involved. I have good skin otherwise and I haven't worn concealer or foundation very much in my lifetime. However, while the scar is healing I would like a concealer, foundation, and powder routine to minimize the appearance of the scar. I'm definitely going to wait until the doctor says it is safe to use makeup on the area. I'm having a hard time determining my skin type because I seem to be a little oily and a little dry. I would love a medium/full coverage foundation that looks and feels natural. I am caucasian with fairly pale skin. Please send me advice! Thanks!
I know I wont see results immediately but did you guys ever try eye creams and saw results fairly quickly in the reduction of dark circles? I have not found a concealer to hide my dark circles! I've tried soo many the list is endless - Bobbi Brown, Nars, Clinique, MUFE, Amazing Cosmetics, etc..Soo now its time to heal my dark circles rather than hide! Any suggestions would be highly appreciated! =)
My BFF is 38 and diagnosed with breast cancer only weeks ago. Had a mastectomy already and will have axillary dissection next week. Chemo will start within a month and oncologist was direct in that her meds will cause hair loss - including brows and lashes. Being scared is hard enough - I need to have brow stencils (with all needed make-up) and false lashes (with any needed tools: glue, liner, etc.) for her this weekend. She is white (but darker white/tan) with green eyes and (natural) brown/dirty blond hair. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated <3
