Hey, I'm an absolute noob when it comes to makeup but I really want to learn how to do it. I'm vaguely familiar with eye shadow, eyeliner and lipstick. I've never used contour, concealer or any of the other products I've seen on here. So, my question is; what products should I buy for eyes, face, brows and lips. Also, how much can I expect to spend? Thank you!

For the past few months, my foundation will be disgusting after a few hours  of wear. I clean my brushes, i use a primer and moisturize. i have dry skin and exfoliate atlas twice a week. But i don't know what is causing my make up to look like this! Now it'll look horrible from the start, when it used to be a few hours into it when it would separate. Please help. I don't even want to wear makeup any

I love the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation for my dry skin, and it covers the redness in my face that I have been getting from using Retin-A.  I currently have Stromboli, which has the best undertone for my olive skin, but it is too dark now that I haven't been in the sun.  I have tried Santa Fe, but it was really pink.  Shiseido Synchro Skin in Golden 3 is a good reference for the depth of my skin tone in the winter.  What would be a good shade suggestion for Nars ADLW?  I would not mind mixing it with Stromboli if that is best either.  Thank you!
Hi,I'm looking for an undereye concealer, I have medium skin with yellow undertones (currently using de UD foundation in shade 5) and I use the Bobby brown corrector in peach but it's not enough to cover my dark circles. I would like to try with a light formula so it doesn't set on my fine lines. Any suggestions?? Thanks a lot in advance!
For my birthday, I received Kat von D's mini liquid lipstick. I am obsessed. I went to Sephora to pick up the full size and apparently lost all skill applying to my lips. The wand is longer than I am used to and I have trouble lining my lips with it. Any tips? thanks!
I have rosacea.  It is greatly reduced since I had a V-laser treatment in April.  I also had IPL in March.  The back to back laser treatments have left my skin more sensitive than they were previously.  I am hoping it will settle as it heals and it seems to be improving. I am also 51 and finding I have different skin needs.  My gritty Exfoliators, which I previously loved, are leaving my skin red, even when I am gentle in the areas I have rosacea. I am considering moving to a gel peel.  I am wondering if the Boscia or the Philip Thomas Roth would be the better choice? 
i just found out im shade 225 make up forever ultra shade foundation and i want to buy the contour and highlight set but wont to make sure to buy the right shade this time.

I don't use eyeshadow that much, but lately, I've been wanting to get one nice eyeshadow palette. I have medium skin brown hair/eyes if that makes any difference and neutral/warm undertones. I would like a couple matte shades and a few shimmer shades, but that's not necessarily a priority. Wondering what the best starter palette would be?    *A couple I've looked at: Lorac Pro 1 and 3, Naked 1/2/3, Tartelette In Bloom, and the Too Faced Chocolate bar palette.
I havea light complexion and a pink undertone. I currently own the Teint Idole in 090 n and the only reason I got this was because it was the lightest shade. I'm debating between 100n or 110c because I don't want a dark color. Any advices?

Hello! I am having a hard time choosing the perfect foundation for my skin color. I think I am cool toned and I have slightly dry skin. Can someone recommend a foundation that will be suitable for my skin type and color? Also as you can see in the photo I have a lot of random blotches of redness. Does anyone know a good skin care product that can cure my redness. I also dislike how I have little little pimples as small as my pores! What are these kind of pimples called and how can I get rid of them??   Sorry for so many questions, I look forward to your advice!      
Hi! I am wearing a teal-green dress to homecoming in a week.   I am not sure what lip color to go with, since the dress is a mix of green and blue. any suggestions would be great thank you so much!

I am DESPERATELY seeking a dupe for Sephora's Color Reveal Lip Balm.  I bought it a few months ago (originally $13, bought on sale for $7!!) and am obsessed with it, but it looks like they discontinued it.  It was super moisturizing and brought out my natural lip color in such a beautiful way.  Does anyone know of any alternatives that aren't super expensive (I'm looking at you Dior Addict Lip Glow) for a lip balm that enhances natural lip color- sold by Sephora or elsewhere!?  
Help. I have very pale, red skin as a surface tone. and I my veins are all obviously extremely blue, I remember once an MUA told me to stick to peachy or coral blushes.. but I can't remember why, if it was my undertone or my redness. I am trying to buy EX1 invisiwwear liquid foundation, and I need to know what shade to get.
My colorIQ is 1y06, what would be the color of smashbox camera ready bb cream for me?
I have fairly sensitive skin that is also oily and acne prone. I have larger pores, texture, and hyper pigmentation from acne scars. I bought the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads and the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Nigh Treatment. Would you recommend using both of these nightly, or alternating them which is what I've been doing recently? I'm also considering switching the Invigorating Night Treatment for the Truth Serum to use in combination with the pads.

I am in need of new eyeliner design for my eyes. Wanting something simple and natural. Any suggestion?

Hello! Every time I use eyeliner, it smudges and doesn't show. I get near my lash line, but when I look in the mirror, the eyeliner is gone. and after I blink a couple times, it smudges. What type of eyeliner should I get and what should be its base? So far, I've been using the Marc Jacob's liquid eyeliner from the birthday gift set. I've been told to just put eyeliner on my water line, but it really just makes me tear up too much and is uncomfortable to wipe off. I would also like the black to be very pigmented. Thanks!   The picture is my eyes without any makeup. There is a little bit of my eye crease visible only in my inner corners.
My face...   * A little longer than it is wide, but not by much * Widest point is my cheekbones (I feel like they would look really nice if my cheeks weren't so damn chubby) * Chubby cheeks * Sharp jawline (not curved, it's very pointed) * Smallest point on my face would be my chin, but my chin is rounded, not pointy *  Sort of like an upside down triangle, except my cheeks are wider  * Not sure if this helps or not, but my eyes are very round, but very small   I feel like some sites make it sound like a round face, and other make it seem like a heart shaped face. So with my unique input, I was wondering if a makeup artist could help me out here. Thanks!
