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.?
No matter what I use my eye makeup ends up smudging by afternoon! I literally tried using everything.... right now I usually use the Urban Decay primer potion, Naked palette, Bobbi Brown eyeshadows, and Bobbi Brown gel liner. Any ideas anyone?
I'm a woman in my thirties having a hard time with hormonal acne. I typically deal with redness, but lately I've had dark red spots from active acne and acne scarring that I'm struggling to cover up. I've tried concealers from Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Tarte, Lancome, and countless others. No matter what, the redness bleeds through. I typically layer concealer over Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and under powder foundation. Can anyone suggest a solution?
I am in love with NARS Audacious lipsticks. ANd I am looking for the first pink shade. My friend, the beauty guru, said that the wrong pink can really age you. And I, obviously, don't want that. Right now, my favorite shade is Charlotte. But I am anxiously awaiting for my order of Bette to deliver. For pinks, I"m considering Natalie first of all, but also Kelly and maybe even Grace. I'd like to see them side by side or to be able to swatch them so I can see what they look like against my skin. Here's the most recent photo of me. I welcome any suggestions.
Here is what I currently use: Neutrogena Grapefruit face wash Say yes to grapefruit under eye cream (doesn't work) CVS brand moisturizer with an SPF of 20 Makeup: Bare Minerals Ready Foundation Bare Minerals Concealer Bare Minerals Blush (been using the same color for three years) Tarte Mascara Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow (from 1, 2, or basics) Bobbi Brown Lipstick I just feel really stuck. I feel as though I need a beauty overhaul. I'm 21 and in college and I don't like to keep up with beauty trends. I prefer refined, classic and tried and true products with good reviews to back them up. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Hi beauties! I am wondering to buy a set of skin care products for my mother who is 52 yrs, dry skin type Asian. She has deep lines problem, especially on her eye areas...

what is the best foundation that covers serious skin problems on the face? I have large bumps on my face and also scarring from previous ones. Ive been trying to find a foundation that will cover everything so I can leave the house, but no such luck yet! Please help!

This is what I have: real technique expert brush marc jacobs no.2 foundation brush sigma f86 becca one perfecting brush beautyblender my fingers.... what is the best for your opinion???
So up until recently, about a month and a half ago, I had extremely dry skin, so dry it would crack if I missed a part of my skincare regimen. I finally had it nearly under control and now my skin has done a complete 180. I'm so oily my makeup slides down my face in about an hour! The only thing I really changed was my foundation, I started using bare minerals bareskin. The weather is also changing but it's about the time where my dry skin just gets drier. I have no idea where to even start with the oily slop that is my face right now. What new regimen can I start to control this? What makeup with work with this? What products (skincare and makeup) will help this? Pretty soon I'll be drowning in my own face grease!
I am new to Hourglass. I have read different reviews and am also looking at the 3 shade set. I don't know what would work! I am in my mid 40s, live in the Upper Midwest (so tan fades as the daylight does). I have brown eyes, short auburn hair, fair skinned and have redness from rosacea on the apples of my cheeks. I also have oily skin/combination skin. Would the set's three colors work? Or am I better off trying a more universally flattering shade. I want something natural for everyday professional office use. Many thanks!
i am relatively new in the makeup world, but i really do enjoy it and i find that, for the most part, the makeup brushes i have once used and loved have grown weary and just aren't up to par anymore. if you guys could recommend your favorite brushes for eyeshadow and face brushes it would be very appreciated!! also i think i need a new eye primer as well. it seems my urban decay sample just isn't working quite right anymore.
I am currently wearing Dr. Jart's Premium BB cream, but it is starting to get a little to dark for me with winter approaching. I usually switch to MUFE HD foundation in shade 115, but I'm looking for something that is a little less foundationy (if that makes sense). I would like something thats light feeling on the skin, but still somewhat full coverage and has multiple shades. I have combo-dry skin and I am fair. What are your recommendations?
What is the correct way to apply a face mask? Is it a matter of preference? I've always applied masks with my fingers. Boscia has a sample set that comes with a brush. The included brush got me wondering. Thanks!
I'm looking for a cream (or other method) that will get rid of my laugh lines. I'm only 23, so I don't want anything too advanced. My face is pretty skinny, which I'm guessing is part of the reason why my laugh lines are more visible than most. I'd like more than just a filler. I'd like something with a more permanent fix. Any suggestions?
Hello! I'm trying to take better care of my skin by using an eye cream. I have some dark circles and slight puffiness because I don't sleep well. I'm a full time grad student and who has time for that?? My problem is that every eye cream I've used makes me wake up with watery itchy eyes. I think I must rub my eyes in my sleep and get the product in there. I don't have particularly sensitive skin, just my eyes because I wear contact lenses and touch them all the time. I'm looking for something gentle and I'd love any recommendations. I'm only 22 so I don't need anything heavily anti aging (or expensive....), just hydrating and will help with puffiness. I've tried the following products (all sample jars from sephora or in those Clinique gift sets). Clinique All About Eyes FRESH Hydrating Rose Gel Cream (which really helped with puffiness so I may just keep using it anyway) FRESH Black Tea Eye Concentrate Clinique repairwear laser focus and AMOREPACIFIC Future response Age Defense Creme Every single one makes me an itchy water beast. The only thing that doesn't is my Nivea Soft creme. It has jojoba oil and vitamin E, is that good enough instead of an eye cream? Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!
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!
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???
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?
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!
