My skin is dry combination, I tend to have an oily forehead/t zone and around my eyes. My cheeks and the rest of my face are really dry. I've been washing my face everyday twice a day, and moisturizing after with a salicylic acid moisturizer, using face masks, and a Mario Badescu treatment. Lately I have been having breakouts that don't seem to be getting better. I use spot treatments but no matter how much I moisturize even on my oily areas I still end up getting gross dry flaky spots where I treat my acne. Any tips/ products I can use to get rid of acne/and or dry spots?
I am new to sephora and just had a makeover done. I purchased the Jeil Hourlgass Primer, YSL Touche Eclat Concealer, Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, Givenchy Photo Perfection Foundation, Sephora Micro Smooth Powder and Nars Issist Highlight Pallete. All of these products were used on me during my make over and at the time I loved it. After using for a month now, I am noticing that the lines under my eyes are more prevalent than before. So, I have quit using the Brightening Powder and Sephora Powder and that has helped some. I was also wondering if maybe the illuminiation in the highlighting pallet might be causing the lines to show up more. Do you have any suggestions on what I shoud do diffrent to help with this problem? Yes, I do have lines but they were not as noticble before I switched makeup.
Hello, I have puffy eyes and tiny white spots under the eye and it looks strange, I am very conscious about it. I am 26 and I have used so many products yet no luck! Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks
I have very oily acne prone skin and I have been breaking out pretty bad recently on my cheeks, chin, and along my jawline. I'm not sure if it's just 1 product that's breaking me out or my whole routine. I'm currently using in the morning: first aid beauty facial cleanser, clean&clear essentials deep cleaning toner for sensitive skin, and the murad oil control mattifier. In the evening: same cleanser and toner, loreal revitalift serum, josie maran argan oil light, and twice a week I use the dr. jart pore medic @ home peel, and benzoyl peroxide as a spot treatment when needed The breakouts are pretty large and not just 1 or 2 at a time but several, I haven't had a breakout like this in a long time...so frustrating! Anyway are there other products I should try instead? I want to use gentle products and products that won't cause my oily skin to overreact. I would also like to incorporate as much drugstore products as possible! Thank you all!
Hello! I'm looking to redo my regimen to use gentler products. I have acne prone skin with a significant amount of discoloration from my hormonal breakouts. I've been using Kate Somerville for years but it doesn't seem to be working for me anymore, so I want to switch to another line that is gentler. I am looking for a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen
Ok, so I'm looking for a new foundation and i can't seem to find anything that matches all of my criteria. I have combination/oily skin and only need a little bit of coverage. i really want something that looks VERY natural because I'm really not in to the whole makeup look. I'm also very pale and have a mix of pink and yellow tones in my skin. Any suggestions?
Trying to decide on two shadows for a make up forever palatte. Like the look of the khaki matte as the dark shadow but can't decide on a paler base shadow to compliment it. Something peachy and not glittery would be ideal. Any suggestions?
Hi, My sephora doesn't yet have the YSL ink foundation so that i can get colour matched. And I heard that its a really great formula but don't want to buy the wrong shade I'm #3 in Guerlain's LdP and 300 in Dior's Airflash foundation. Can someone please recommend me a shade for the new YSL foundation? Thanks!
I use Benefit Brow Zings in 'Light', can anybody please advise me what colour would be the nearest match in Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade please? I live in Ireland so will have to purchase online without being able to swatch. If anybody has the Brow Zings in Light I would greatly appreciate it if the could swatch it against their ABH Dipbrow. Thanks in advance!
I wanted to try the Sephora Perfection Mist, however i am unsure which color to buy? (nearest sephora is a long way from me, so i was planning on ordering online) I have included a photo of me in the most natural lighting possible. I have oily and acne prone skin, is this foundation good for me? Any other recommendations ?
Hello! Recently, my foundation has not been looking its best. I have acne-prone, combination oily skin and I use the clinique acne solutions makeup with the hourglass mineral veil primer. But my foundation has been getting cakey and clinging to dry patches. I haven't changed my skincare much because I use topical gel for my acne at night and my clinique three step system in the morning. Should I get a new foundation? Please help!
Hi! I want to try the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen foundation but I'm not sure what shade will match me as the descriptions online dont include what skin tones/undertones they are best for. My perfect match is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush foundation in Light Beige. Is there a Benefit foundation color similar to this?
Hi everyone! I actually have two questions. I'm looking into purchasing a foundation. I have some acne scars I want to cover, in addition to covering (and possibly treating) new breakouts. How do I go about picking the right color foundation for me? I know sephora has their Pantone thing but it seems a bit dark in the store, so I don't know if I'd get accurate results. Secondly, should I be purchasing a concealer to apply before foundation, or would foundation typically be enough?
OK, so I bit the bullet (no pun intended) and made an appointment at my dentist to get my teeth professionally whitened. Anyone have any words of wisdom on preparation, longevity, whitening I can expect, etc? I've questioned my dentist bunches of times (this is not something I just jumped into), but I'd really like some feedback from people who've had it done. I'm looking forward to this, but I'm a little anxious, too!
I have Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup in shade Sand 1W2. I was wondering what was the next shade up with the same undertones? It was so perfect but I've gotten a bit darker and looks a tad pale.
I use Kat Von D' Lock-It Tattoo foundation in Medium 54 which is a good match for me. 54 is described as being for medium complexions w/ yellow-beige undertones. Prior to finding my match, I bought Medium 53 (doesnt give any info other then being medium) and it was very very yellow on me. So two questions: (1) Does this information tell you that I'm warm or cool? (2) What shade would one mix with a foundation that is too yellow? I hate to throw it away as it's pricey. Thank you for your time. Any advise given will be greatly appreciated.
