This is my first time posting here, and I am in desperate need of some advice. I have tried several different concealers (both drugstore and high-end from Sephora) and have yet to find a product that really matches my skin-tone. I have quite pale skin (some would say very pale) with pink undertones, which are not deep at all. For reference, the shade 001 (Light) in Dior's Diorskin Nude BB Crème matches my skin flawlessly. Essentially, my problem is that all of the concealers I've tried have an orange or yellow base, and I need one with more of a pink base, but I've been unable to find one. I'm currently contemplating trying the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Fair, but from looking at the swatch online here, it also looks like it has more of a yellow/orange base and I'm leery of spending the money if I'm just going to have to return it. I've been unable to find any youtube video reviews of that shade, and my closest Sephora store doesn't carry them. So, I am taking to this board in the hopes that one of you wonderful readers will be able to help me with my dilemma. Also for reference, I've tried Bobbi Brown's Face Touch-up Stick in Warm Ivory (the shade that was recommended to me) and it too is too orange. I've also tried Tarte's Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Fair, but it was too light. I'm currently using the Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla, but it too has a more orange base, and it doesn't work well for me when I have to use it to cover acne blemishes; I wind up with patches on my face that are darker than the rest of my skin because of the concealer's base tone. I've also tried Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage in SC 2, thinking I could blend a custom color, but it was too cake-y in texture and also had the same issue with the orange base tones. I realize I've rambled a lot here, but it's a frustrating situation. I would greatly appreciate any advice or opinions on which product might work for me. The other alternative is to drive to my nearest Sephora store and get in-store help; and that store is 80 miles away. Thank you very much in advance for your advice/help!
I have a chronic illness, and use to have a perfect olive skin tone. However, as my disease has progressed my skin is very pale. I have tried so many foundations, and nothing seems to work. I love wearing full coverage light, and flawless. Concealers are a problem, to. My dark circles are very difficult to cover. I wish my skin tone could have at least a warm glow. Any advice?
So im HORRIBLE at putting on eyeliner. I just want a simple look but whenever I try I end up looking like a panda. My sis says its because my eyes are too round but I dont know. I have just been trying to put eyeliner as close as possible to my top lashes and my waterline but it never works...any tips???
Hello, I visited my local Sephora store yesterday and tried cream eye shadow for the first time and they seemed very easy to blend . I have never used cream eyeshadow so I would appreciate advice on the following before I make the switch: What are the pros and cons of cream eyeshadows as compared to powder eyeshadows? Do you need to apply an eye shadow primer when using cream eyeshadow? Can cream and powder eyeshadow blend together? Which brand carries MATTE cream eyeshadows that are also waterproof and smudge resistant? The brands I saw were Tarte, MUFE, and Buxom but all of them were very shimmery and I am looking for daily wear colors. Any specific brand/color recommendations for medium fair skin with yellow undertones (brown hair/brown eyes)? Thanks!
What is the best eyeshadow for really sensitive skin? My eyelids have been very sensitive lately, I think an allergic reaction to some old makeup I used, so I'm hesitant to use anything too harsh on them.
I'm looking to purchase a curling wand and I can't decide between the "Nume Titan 3" or the "Bellami 6 in 1 set". I'm looking for the least damaging tool as well as the one with most staying power, please help!
I have some what of an uneven skin tone because of my acne. I have been using the Derma Doctor DD cream because I love that it doesn't make me oily like my skin usually is. However, I'm looking for a foundation that can give me a little more coverage when I need it. I have tried a few other foundations like makeup forever and all they do it make my skin super oily!
I have have ance prone skin and I use two different prescription lotions (one in the morning, one at night) I also have combination skin. Very dry but before I know it, my t-zone is super oily. I've been using bare minerals for as long as I can remember and I love it...However it is not enough coverage at all. I would like to use a liquid foundation and maybe finish with a powder? I am nervous that it will break me out. I have read reviews on all products but am always getting a mixed review. Thanks for the help!!!
So, I'm really sensitive about what comes near my eyes because my allergies cause bumps all along underneath my eyelids. I want to try wearing eyeliner but I really don't feel comfortable doing my waterline due to the fact that my eyes are typically irritated on that area as is. Is it absolutely required that I do it or will I look like a complete momo?
I am 14 years old and I am looking for a good foundation, bb cream, etc. that is around $35 or it could be under and that I could wear everyday that doesn't make me look cakey. I have normal to dry skin.
Okay so I've been having some problems blending out my shadow. They just aren't a dream to blend. I'm also lacking a few good basics. I'm looking for a great palette that has awesome basics, blends easily, and as good transational colors that work well with almost any color. Nothing to cool or warm. I don't mind if it had a couple.non neutral colors. Any suggestions please??? Thanks for your help!
If I have breakouts & have tried all types of acne skin care and nothing seems to keeps face clear am I using the wrong like of skin care? Should I go with hydrating or regular? I realize when you break out it doesn't mean you have acne, but I'm not familiar with anything else because it's really all I've tried. Maybe I'm drying and irritating my face too much where it gets the opposite effect? I have no idea but PLEASE HELP!!
Hello, I am wondering how the Buxom Lash mascara and Urban Decay Lush Lash mascara would compare. They have very similar hourglass brushes. I have been using Buxom Lash, and really like it. Should I stick with Buxom Lash or try the Urban Decay one?
Hi. I cant decide if I should just get a good tinted moisturizer and then put a setting powder on over it or if I should get a foundation plus setting powder? I have redness on my cheeks ( eczema), so its something i'm insecure about and want to cover up but I want to find the right way to go about doing it. What would be your suggestion?
I've been searching for years for a lightweight powder foundation that is light enough for my pale skin tone. The latest I tried was Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup in Illusion and it was too orange and dark, although I loved the way it feels. The closest I've ever been able to find is L'oreal Paris True Match Naturale in Soft Ivory 456/n1-2, but I'm not totally satisfied with it either. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I'm going to be a junior bridesmaid or bridesmaid in a wedding in April (I'm 14). I'm not sure if we'll get our makeup professionally done, so I'm wondering what makeup I should wear so I can plan ahead. I have very pale/cool combination skin with blue eyes and auburn/brown hair (naturally curly and medium length). I obviously don't want to stand out too much as it's the bride's day to shine, but I also don't want to fade into the background and be just a face in the crowd. I don't know what color our dresses will be. So, to sum it up, I need makeup products & ideas to use for a bridesmaid's hair and makeup. Thanks!
I've always had to use Almay's moisturizing eye makeup remover pads because all others dry out the skin under my eyes. I can no longer use them because I have learned they test on animals. Anything else out there comparable?
I have pretty fair skin and ive tried a few drug store bronzers and they all look ridiculously dark on me. Any suggestions for bronzers that arent too dark? The ones i tried look like ive wiped mud on my face.

I was sent a sample of the oil cleanser from DHC and I loved it. I would have never considered putting oil all over my face. I would buy it but problem is they test on animals. So, what would be the best oil cleanser for my skin type? Also, does it defeat the purpose of the oil cleanser if I use my regular cleanser afterwords? Thanks so much for the help!
So I'm going to be a bridesmaid for my friend's wedding in August. I just picked up my dress last week and I love it. I've been looking for makeup ideas on YouTube, Pinterest, Tumblr and I really have no idea what to do. Here is a picture of the dress: And here is a picture of me wearing it, so you get an idea of my skintone. (Please excuse the horrible picture, my camera was having a tantrum that day lol.) I'm about a NC 40-42 or 2Y09 Thanks!!!!!!
Something that is easy and I can just swipe on without a mirror! And won't melt in my bag on a hot summer day! For summer; lip gloss or lip stick? I always feel like lip stick is too heavy, but I hate overly sticky glossy lips (so does my boyfriend!).
