I don't really have a need to wear foundation or anything for coverage unless it is just concealer for my dark under eye circles. Is a primer beneficial at this point? Is there a primer to enhance natural features?
Help! I always have redness show through on my chin. No matter how much makeup I apply it always comes through. I always use a primer and nothing helps. If i try and add a finishing powder it just makes my chin dry and skin flaky. I've tried everything and can't keep makeup on my chin! 
I have the Makeup forever hd foundation. Is there some sort of primer ( water based i believe it'd have to be right?) or some kind of brush. The foundation when i put it on just sits on top of my skin . Particularly noticeable on my cheeks,nose and sometimes my eyebrows. I moisturize before and sometimes add a face oil. The oil sometimes help but not terribly. I have dryer skin so is this not the foundation i should be using? I like a foundation with coverage because my face can get red so i need coverage
Does it look weird to only wear foundation and lipstick? I don't wear any eye shadows or eyeliner.
I just had to change my moisturizer from NUDE to REN Clean Skincare.  I use the Sunday Riley Night Oil and forgot to ask the store expert if I can continue to use it along with the REN Radiance Perfection Serum at night?   If so, which do I use first?  
i am currently using Dior Forever 010 but I spray tan in the summer months.  Am assuming I should use a different foundation but how do I choose it?
I bought the Vita Liberata tanning mousse three years ago and forgot about it, is it still good to use?
I have tried flash testing from my iPhone camera. Not using the the front face camera. The actual camera from my phone.  All the foundations cause a white cast to my face. I've tried MUFE HD foundation , smashbox 15 hour , milani 2 in 1, kat Von d lock it , Mac face & body, Giorgio Armani luminous silk.     My mosturizor doesnt have SPF in it. I have tried these foundations with nothing else under or over it to just test the flash back on the foundations. Everything seems to cause a white cast. What am I doing wrong? These foundations shouldn't be causing a white cast. 
what makeup or skincare products do i absolutely need to buy right now 
Hello...I am looking for a foundation. I currently use LM tinted moisturizer. I am looking for a little more coverage. Here's the thing....I like creamy or moisturizing. I find matte too drying. I would prefer no scent, but not mandatory. I have normal, slightly dry, skin, and I don't want a "tan" look. Anything creamy, on the lighter side that feels soft and moisturizing? Medium coverage, and no illuminating to it. Thanks for your suggestions. Lisa
I have tried a lot of different methods and I can not find anything that will cover up my tattoo. I need something that is waterproof for the beach. I have tried Dermablend and tattoo camo and neither one of them worked. My tattoo is on the inner area of my arm so I need something that will not rub off on my clothes.
Hello I am getting married in Cancun Mexico and it so hot and humidityand I am afraid it wont last. I have some oily around my nose. RIght now I wear the nars foundation. Any advice will help. Thank you
I am looking for an eyerliner that will not smudge within 20 minutes. I have tried most of them what is the best one out there to keep from smudging or running. Thank you
Ok, so I know this is NOT how it happened but I swear I feel like I went to bed one night and woke up the next morning with semi-deep forehead wrinkles!  I never noticed them before and then BAM - there they were!  Does anyone have any recommendations on the best wrinkle fillers/reducers?  My skin otherwise looks pretty good for 42 - no "11's", no wrinkles around my mouth, and very minimal 'crows feet'.  Just left staring at these lines on my forehead!  Please HELP! 
Hi   I live on a lake in Florida, but rarely go into the sun anymore. I have blonde hair and blue eyes, and just got 3 more tiny skin cancers cut off my arms and leg a week ago. I used to live in the sun- 10:00 to 4:00 all day long, at the beach, at the end of my dock, etc. I am paying the price now.   What pressed powder foundation is best for my age? My skin is very clear, mostly dry now (I used to have a T-zone), and I don't know if I should use matte, sheer, etc. How do I decide on what shade? I want the highest rated powder foundation that lasts all day and won't look dried out, but will keep my skin looking dewey.   Thanks!   Belinda
H! I have oily/acne prone skin and I have been struggling for years to find the perfect foundation/powder combination for my skin. I also do not like anything too heavy. What do you suggest?
I went to Sephora in store today looking at the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, and I really wanted to get it! I got a lady there to match me to 'Blonde', but sure enough, they didn't have anymore in stock (just my luck). I came on their website to order it, but the names of the colours are different. I know I would either be Taupe, or Caramel, but I'm not sure which one is Blonde in the stores? Did they change the names? Could anyone help me find my shade? Thank you!!
So I already have abh stripped and I love it but I've wanted stila caramello for a long time. I was wondering how similar these colors are and if it's worth having both. Thanks!! 
What color(s) would look nice on me from MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow Eyeshadow and Powder Blush brand? Also should I do one color for my whole eye or more then one? (Hazel eyes, brown hair and pale skin)
74 year young female...seeks solution for rosacea - combination skin type
Good Morning!   I need help deciding on a new foundation. I moved to Korea 2 weeks ago for my job and my skin has just gotten worse and worse. I'm breaking out with dozens of white heads, under the skin zits, black heads spreading, pores look unusually large, redness worsening... I haven't broken out this bad in years. I hate the way my skin looks right now. I'm changing my skin care routine to something gentler (South Korea is known for its skin care so I thought I'd give some of their products/"secrets" a try) but I need a new foundation.  Currently using: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20- oil free in porcelain.  My Skin: I have combination skin. Very very oily in the T-zone but I dry out around my eyes, upper lip, and cheeks. I have had mild acne since I was a teen and some redness on my face and neck. The Issue: We're in the hot and humid season here and I think this foundation is only adding to the problem, clogging pores and worsening the oil problem. Looking for: A light coverage foundation, something like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. I don't like the feeling of thick make up but I like to wear some since I do have some old scaring and an uneven skin tone. Can you please help?
Hello all! This might be a bit long so please bear with me.   I have terrible dark circles (though they're more purple really) and I was set up with the Make Up For Ever HD concealer and it's not too shabby. I have better luck when I pair it with my NYX color corrector concealer in a peachy shade. I'm fair/ light skin toned. I lived in South Korea for 3 years and my oil-control setting powder is nearly out! I've just discovered the different kinds of setting powders there are... and there's a lot. But the biggest question I have really is how do you know whether you need one for brightening or not? Because I would like one to try to use to set my concealer and entire face using the same product. Honestly, I have no idea what dull skin even looks like because it's all pretty much the same to me? Also, I sweat a lot and often (Florida sucks) so anything can could help keep me in place with that too would be awesome. Thank you!!!!
I am looking for a light-weight foundation for summer that looks natural but gives good coverage. I have combination-oily, acne-prone skin. I have always been a fan of Makeup Forever HD foundation, but I am interested in trying something lighter for the summer. Maybe something mineral??   Thanks! XOXO Sarah
I am looking to switch my foundation to the Tarte foundation. Which do you recommend? And what shade? I currently wear Larenim pounder foundation 2-N. Thanks!
I've been dying to get my hands of Benefit's Hervana blush, but I can't find it in store or online at Sephora. I've seen it on Benefit's website and at Ulta, but I prefer to buy "high-end" things at Sephora to get the VIB points. Is Hervana just out of stock temporarily at Sephora, or are they just never gonna sell it again?
I use the Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying lotion between my cleanser and moisturizer for my acne. The first few days I start using it my skin looks great! But for some reason with continued use, it starts to make my jawline+chin very dry. It's funny because my T-zone looks fine and even gets oily/shiny throughout the day, but my dry jawline and chin make my makeup look flaky and patchy in those areas!  I also use a mattifying foundation (Make Up Forever Mat Velvet +) could that be making it worse?
