Can anyone tell me their eyebrow tattoo experience ? I'm getting mine done during the summer by slightly tattooing because I don't want to go through the hassle of using pencil or powder (can't anyways because of sensitive eyes and too much money). Can I still a tinted brow gel like benefit's gimme brow in medium deep to look as natural as possible ?

I am trying out the Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able Foundation and I cannot get it to apply smoothly. It comes out patchy and scaly looking. I have normal skin and can usually use any kind of foundation and any formula. I've tried water based and silicone based primers, no primer, with and without moisturizer and nothing helps. I have not tried the Marc Jacobs primer. Could it be that does the trick? I have only tried this with a brush since that was recommended. Would a Beauty Blender help? I really want this foundation to work because the coverage is insanely full, which I like. Has anyone else with my skin type had this problem?
Hi! I am 19 and am in my first year in college. Yes college has been stressful for me bc I am a biochemistry major that has to maintain a 3.6 GPA but ive dealt with school stress all my life so I dont think that would really play this significant of a factor. My hair used to be very thick curly auburn hair and now its thinning at my scalp and falling out CONSTANTLY. It used to take me approximately 2 hours to straighten my hair and now it takes me around 20 min. I try my best to avoid straightening and curling my hair and only do so maybe once a month or once every two months. I have always had healthy hair and IDK what to do. Clumps and clumps are falling out and my scalp is becoming so thin (that you can see through my hair to my scalp) its terrifying because I just turned 19. I use argan and Moroccan oil and use a moroccan oil based shampoo. I take a multi vitamin and just recently started taking biotin (trader joes brand). Please any help/tips/advice would be really appreciated! Thank you!
I have a few questions: 1. What is the Dior Airflash Foundation based on? Is it water-based, sulfur-based? 2. Do both the Foundation and it's primer have to have the same kind of base? (Ex: both are water-based for it too work well) 3. Is a lotion equivalent to a primer? Or will the lotion just not work at all..
I'm getting my hair done next week, and I have no idea what I should get done. I have long hair (mid-back), dark blonde/light brown, straight, flat, and coarse. My hair is not thick, but it's not super thin. I also have some sort-of side bangs from when I got my hair cut a couple months ago (they're long enough to tuck behind my ear). My face is round/oval (I've heard different opinions from people). I look AWFUL with a center part, and I don't want anything that makes my face look rounder (I think my head looks like a bowling ball lol). I like what I call "bombshell hair"--Victoria's Secret models, Sofia Vergara. Anyone have any suggestions for what to do with my hair? Thanks in advance!
I have prom coming up in a week. My dress is navy blue. It has white, silver, a rustic gold, and turquoise beading on it. I'm not sure on what colors to choose for my eyeshadow or lipstick?? I have brown hair and brown eyes with a light to medium skin color. Help!
hi , i am a 42 yearld old women with not many wrinkles , but would love to get a good cream or product for maybe a lift affect if possible. i know if i would find one it would be at sephoras . thanks cant wait to see result
I will be going to Thailand soon, and the weather there is HOT. Better yet, I'm going during the humid rainy season! I would rather not have something that has a full, heavy coverage in that heat! My acne has gotten better so I'm not as concerned with getting full coverage as I used to be, but I'm still not sure which bb/cc cream or even tinted moisturizer is good enough to last in the heat! I've tried benefit's bb cream but the somewhat powdery finish made my dry spots look splotched an uneven, as any powder foundation does. I have fair, sensitive skin that is dry combination. Thanks for any suggestions!
Hello - I have acne prone skin and Laura Mercier has been good to my skin so far. I currently use the mineral powder in Natural Beige for everyday and use the liquid in butterscotch for going out. But I hate traveling with the massive mineral powder container. I want to try the Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder mineral press powder what color do you think I would be? They don't have this in the store by me so. http://www.sephora.com/mineral-pressed-powder-spf- 15-P244913?keyword=LAURA%20MERCIER%20Mineral%20Pre ...
Hi, I'm a total make-up noob, and I'm looking for a bb/cc-cream or a light coverage foundation that's easy yet good and natural looking... I have a medium skin tone with some yellow undertones I think (My mom is Indian and dad is Belgian haha) so I just need something that will match and not make my face a complete different color... I have a pretty clear skin, a few breakouts every now and then. And I have combination skin. Hope someone can help me haha
i'm looking to buy a foundation that won't settle into laugh lines or look too cakey. i think i have combination skin…. it's initially somewhat dry in the beginning of the day and gets super oily as the day goes on in addition to being acne prone. i'm torn between kat von d lock it foundation and Makeup forever matte velvet
I need a good lotion/cream for under my make-up...I am using first aid beauty hydration (6 oz) and my skin feels very tight and uncomfortable by mid-day..please help me with suggestions on a good moisturizer/cream/hydrator...

Hi there! Is there an up-to-date list of silicone-free sephora products? It's been asked before, but it doesn't look like there's ever been a comprehensive answer. I'm specifically looking for foundations, concealers and primers to try for my oh-so silicone-sensitive (dermatologist-tested) skin, and for others with the same sensitivities. Thanks!
I have textured, uneven skin due to past acne. Its not too bad and dents aren't too deep but it is so annoying. My pores seem large too. What could I use to resurface my skin and get rid of this scarring?
I have heard the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow powder duo is great for soft natural brows. However, does this product really smudge off on oily skin? I have sensitive itchy eyes and can this get in your eyes like eyeshadow. I've tried using an unknown pencil from my mom's collection and it was hard to wash it off with soap. No wonder a lot of women complain that their brows fall off with the ABH Brow Wiz. I am going to also use the Benefit gimme with of the two products above. Just can't decide ! I will include a photo below and tell me what product and shade will be best for me. P.s. My brows are not shaped. I don't know how, what shape, and where to start with what tool.
Just noticed that all of the spring stuff is showing up (early as always) but the thread is still specific to Winter (which it is...but tell the brands). So what have you found, dear BTers, that is new on Sephora...
I have been seriously trying to get into the contour world. I have been told before to use the NXY and I did not like it. So I've gave in and decided to either get the tarte contour pallet or the Kat Von D one. I need some pros and cons of each? (fair skin tone, combo skin type)
I am looking for a new skincare routine and would like to use the whole line. Im debating between FAB and Caudalie as I have sensitive skin. What do you guys recommend? I don't have any skin concerns besides pores that should be controlled with exfoliating I would appreciate suggestions!
