I'm asian girl and have some acne spots that make my skin look red. So does this make me yellow base skin tone? I tried shade 3 and it worked well. But I am not sure whether I should try shade 2 before buying shade 3 or not. Is shade 2 also yellow base? Or is it pink base?
I have the cream contour from Anastasia in light and im not sure how I should set it. Ive seen people set it with contour and highlighting powder but it seems to me that that's just contouring twice. I personally don't need my face to look that chiseled and am going for a more natural look. Preferably matte. Should I just be setting it with a setting spray? I have a matte finishing spray from NYX and also the MAC fixing spray. Or should I purchase a translucent setting powder to set my contour? Help!! xoxo
I recently bought a highlighter but I don't have a brush to use it with! I bought the E.L.F. Small Tapered Brush to use for the time being, but I would like something else that I know will apply the product perfectly!
Im a 15 year old girl with very oily and dry skin, no matter how much i moisturise and use oil control. Also, my makeup doesn't stay on, even with primers. Could anyone recommend me any good product/products to help with this? Please bear in mind that I am 15 so don't have a massive budget, but any recommendations are much appreciated x
I am getting into the whole cream blush thing and having fun. Currently I own Stila lilium, petunia and hibiscus. I am interested in trying the Becca tint or any other good tint formulation. Any suggestions for colors to try for my NC 30 skin tone. I don't want overlap between the Stila blush shades I already own. Thanks!
Hi I am looking for a good mascara that is clump free and does not flake. I am looking for volume and separation. I was using the tarte camera lashes waterproof version, but its hard to get off and irritated my eyes. I loved the Benefit they are real, but again hard to get off. Please help me with some suggestions for my sensitive eyes. Thanks!
So, as the title says, I did the Color IQ and got matched as shade 3Y08. However, this shade doesn't show me a MUFE match. I want to get the HD foundation, but I don't know what shade I would be. Thanks for your help.
Hey everyone! I have good, dewy skin on the cheeks however I can never find a cream that is good for my skin type. My skin literally covers both ends of the spectrum. I've tried Ole Henrikson's sheer transformation cream and while it felt amazing on my cheeks, my t-zone, specifically my nose, was still flaking like no tomorrow but it was still a bit oily. It's very frustrating because at the same time, I get breakouts approximately once a month in my t-zone area and my forehead tends to be quite oily. Anyone have skin care advice/tips as well as suggestions on what creams/moisturizers have worked for them? I live in Canada so our temperature fluctuates throughout the year. Thank you!
Does ayone have a recommendation for a good tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation that has SPF and is good or oily skin? I don't want it matte. and i can get dry spot so it's kind of a combo, i need moisture but not too much , i like coverage and a semit dewy glow if possible. I'm using the Clinique Moisture Surge CC cream now, which i love the coverage and how it makes my skin look, but it is making me breakout. Anyone know about something that looks similar but is good for oily skin?
I have done all the research. I live too far from a Sephora, but i am now certain of my undertone. I am a neutral or warmth. But i cannot decipher which i should use when buying. I am so interested in the Bareminerals Getstarted kit. However, I can't decide if I should get neutral or golden for the undertone. YES, i have done the vein test. It's in between. I also have done the jewelry and white test. I've done everything. Help.
I'm 22 years old and I need a new concealer for under-eye circles. I've tried a bunch but haven't found "the one" yet. Most of them settled into fine lines around my eyes and made them more noticeable. Any suggestions? I've tried "Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer" by SMASHBOX, "All About Eyes Concealer" by CLINIQUE, "Double Feature" by LORAC, and "Amazing Concealer" by Amazing Cosmetics. I've also tried the bareminerals "well rested" and "bisque" and wasn't sold on either of them for my undereye circles. I wouldn't even mind using two different concealers but I just want something that will work! Any ideas?
I have very bad hyper pigmentation and ive been searching for the best concealer to use. But none have worked for me they usually dont have enough coverage and fade has the day goes by. What concealers out there are good for my hyper pigmentation?
I'm 41 and looking for an eye cream to help with my sagging lids, crows feet, and fine lines. I have very sensitive skin, so I don't want to use anything with retinol in it. I have already tried the Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist cream (it was so heavy and greasy it made me break out in white bumps all around my eyes). I also tried the Algenist Firming and Lifting gel and I had an allergic reaction to it (it made my eyes puff up pretty badly all around and caused a lot of discomfort). I could really use some help. I love my Sephora store, but, everyone who works there is in their 20s and none of them know what to recommend for me. Can anyone please help? I'm desperate! Thanks!
Hi everyone! I've been getting really into wearing more colorful liquid eyeliners lately, but I've had one problem: on Sephora.com, the top-rated ones are usually black, brown, or grey! I really would prefer to use a liquid, or a gel if I really have to. So, my question to you is: what is the best liquid eyeliner that comes in colors such as gold, silver, blue, etc.?
I am interested in trying the Hourglass concealer as coverage for occasional pimple but not sure which shade. I am 49, light brown hair and hazel eyes...pretty fair but do not like to use makeup so a natural look would be my preference
I need a new foundation and I'm a little stumped on what to get. I'm thinking either the Nars Sheer Glow or MUFE HD Invisible Cover and I'm not sure which would be better for me. I have dry, sensitive skin and have struggled with acne. I have my acne under control, but I have scarring that needs covering. I'm looking for something that looks super natural, but also has medium coverage and isn't going to draw attention to dry spots. Any ideas which foundation would be better? Or if there's another one that I should consider?
I'm 25, fair skinned with sensitive combination skin. I have this under control with a regular routine that seems to be working, however I need help with repairing damage from the past! I don't wear a lot of makeup, cleanse gently daily, lightly moisturize when needed, exfoliate occasionally, and wear sunscreen (now). I have a lot of acne scars that just won't go away on my pale skin and a few pock marks and discoloration/sun spots. My main problem are the red marks from acne. (My breakouts are mostly gone, but if I use anything too heavy/moisturize I WILL BREAK OUT!) What sort of products should I be looking for that might help with overall quality of my skin? Concerned about preventing wrinkles/aging too. (I have a good eye serum so that's fine.) Is there any product that might help with all of these things? I don't like to use more than one or two, because the more product I use the worse my skin gets. I tried something from Clinique a while ago and I'm not really sure that it helped? Any knowledge or tips would be appreciated!!
I've easily tried 20-30 different types of mascara over the past few years, and have yet to find a single formula suited to my straight, short lashes. I have to curl my eyelashes--otherwise, they stick straight-down. With non-waterproof formulas, my lashes uncurl in less than an hour, and I can't build volume. Trust me--straight lashes WITH mascara is worse than straight lashes WITHOUT mascara. I've found a few extra-strength waterproof formulas that hold curls, but they tend to be very clumpy, thick, and make my lashes brittle--I avoid using them. BUT, I once tried a sample of mascara with a formula that wasn't super wet--it was almost dry. It was subtle but buildable, and held a curl MUCH longer than a wet mascara would on me. It was a sample my sister received, and I never got the name of it. So my question is, do you know of any mascaras with dryer formulas? Because after trying all these supposed miracle mascaras, I think a drier formula is my best option.
I am going to be getting eyelash extensions. I currently use eyeliner, mascara and some shadow to blend out the liner around my eyes. I understand that with eyelash extensions I will be wearing a lot less makeup, but I'm wondering what a good eyeliner product/method is for extra accent? Is it better to stick with shadow as a liner or does it build up at the lash line?? Also what is a good makeup remover that is safe to use with eyelash extensions?? Thanks!
I use prescription retin A (.1%). I tried the L'Oreal youth code line and can't see a lot of difference. What should I use? I am 54. Major problem is loss of firmness. I don't mind spending some money, but don't want to waste it (again)!
Im not really sure how to use the Shiseido White Lucent Total Brightening Serum. I got it for my mother, she's 58 years and I don't know what is the right cleanser and softener for her to use? She has combination/ normal skin type. Please help, I really want her to use it ASAP.
I the past year I suffered from really bad acne. I finally got it cleared up, but still have some scarring. Last spring I got the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in the shade Ivory, which I liked okay but I wasn't in love with it. My skin can get pretty dry, especially in the winter and I felt like it just clung to and enhanced my dry spots. A few weeks ago I picked up the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in the shade NW15. I really like the Pro Longwear concealer so I thought I'd try out the foundation. I liked the finish and how much more natural it looked on me compared to the Tarte foundation. It took a while to figure out a system with it so it didn't look cakey, and now that I finally got it down I'm noticing some clogged pores and small breakouts. I'm planning on taking it back this week, but now I'm not sure which foundation I should try instead. I'm thinking either MUFE HD Invisible Cover or Nars Sheer Glow. I really want something that looks super natural, but has enough coverage to hide my acne scars. Does anyone have any input or recommendations? Thanks so much!
