I currently use Makeup Forever HD foundation, but feel that it is too heavy for everyday use.  What are some suggestions for everyday foundation that isn't too heavy and seems like I have nothing on?
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!
if im a c40 in mac's studio fix powder plus foundation what color would i be in KVD's lock it powder foundation?
I dont have a picture to attach but, I have dark hair, dark brown eyes, and really pale skin/cool skin tone.
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 am a MAC NW25 or MAC matchmaster 4 in colour I am wanting to try the Kat Von D lock it councation the Bobbi Brown long-wear even finish foundation the Tarte Amazonian Clay, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup and Laura Mercier oil free I am in Australia heading to USA in 1 month if anyone can give me some suggestions iknow they do colour matching and colour IQ when I was in the USA 8 months ago they gave me all too light colours in the above foundation
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!
Hello. Looking for a full coverage foundation that matches my skin tone. I am a Tanned Oriental Asian ...kind of like Grace Park, Michelle Kwan...any recommendations? Thanks!

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!).
black heads, i would like to clean up my rigid black heads what should i use?
I have asian eyes, and even with an eye primer, my eyeliners smudge all the time. I also have sensitive eyes, and my eyes get really watery .. so by the time I even get to the train station, half my eye makeup is ruined (I'm not even at school yet)   I'm wondering if anyone could recommend me a great liquid eyeliner that doesn't smudge, and is easy to use. I've tried the bobbi brown gel liner before but it hardened on me - didn't bother doing anything with it because I got so frustrated. I've had every pencil liner there is, but all of them both smudged and washed away with water. I've tried Stila's felt tip liquid eyeliner - is easy to use and is great, but it does smudge and isn't very long lasting. using LORAC liquid pen right now, works well, but I think it can get a little better than this one and a bit more accessible (so that I can just go to a store and buy it in person rather than waiting a week for sephora to deliver) tried Clinique's cream liner - smudges and washes away with water Smashbox felt tip pen - was great, but didn't last very long as if I bought it half empty..
My skin gets super oily (even with powder!) after only a few hours and my foundation seems to never set, it always comes off if I touch my face. I also have acne prone skin, so if there's a primer that smooths out the skin, that would be great, but my main concern is the oiliness.   
I recently purchased the Discover the Amazon 3-piece set and absolutely LOVE the Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage foundation! The problem is, I now want to purchase a full-size bottle, but I don't know what shade of 'light' the set came with, as that colour perfectly matched my skin. Does anyone know the shade?   Thanks!!
Hi, I am getting married this June and would like a fake tan that will last for both the wedding and the honeymoon. I have tried the St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse and I love it. However, I do not see it lasting for an entire week, especially if I swim in the pool at all. Is there anything I can use in addition to the Bronzing Mousse that will help my tan last for the entire week? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I have watery eyes. I've tried almost every technique in the book from lightly patting application area with napkin, to switching eyeliners. My eyeliner just won't stay put. I've even tried applying eyeshadow over the eyeliner, and that just makes it smudge faster...I've tried gel liners, pencil liners, AND liquid liners...even the waterproof liners smudge...help?
I have dark skin and I SPF lotions are white and changes the way my foundation looks and if I want to go bare skinned with out make up I look like a ghost?
Sorry for the length, but I've spent days researching to try to find my skin undertone and my "season" and I'm still lost. I have VERY ashy light/medium brown hair that a hair stylist once said "wow, it's so mousy it's practically gray"...however, it sometimes shows some hints of gold in the sun (happened much more so when I was a kid, I'm 25 now). My skin is very pale and translucent now with very pink cheeks due to moderate rosacia, though as a kid I tanned in the summer. My veins are blue, though I swear my skin has some yellow cast to it, and I look better in silver jewelry - but that could just be my opinion. So for the most part, my hair and skin seems cool....however, my eyes have a medium, warmish muted brown inner iris with an olive green outer iris - warm colors right??? I've tried wearing every color of the rainbow in both warm, cool, jewel, and muted shades..none of them really looked horrible or great on me, though light pinks make my skin seem a little brighter I think. No hair colors have ever been stunning on me either. Makeup is a crapshoot - colors look ridiculous on me IMO. Cool neutrals look grey and fake on my eyes, but look better with my skin, and warm neutrals make my eyes glow, but with my skin tone and hair, make me look sallow (?) and like I was punched in the eye and have a yellowy brown bruise. I need to figure this out before I spend a lot of money on the wrong products, but I'm at a loss of how to look my best at this point. I'm also disabled, so it would be difficult to come to a store for a consultation.
I always use NARS (fiji)  powder foundation SPF 12 but its sold out EVERYWHERE for some odd reason!? I absolutely love NARS fiji is my perfect color match but I am in desperate need of a new powder and sense I can't get NARS anytime soon....   Any suggestions on some other good brands I was thinking Chanel but I don't know? I also wonder what would be the color match for other brands for me any suggestions?   Oh and I am 21 with semi dry skin if that info helps. 
I admit, I'm the worst at throwing away my makeup... how bad is it really?? Any wiggle room?
I have dry skin and everytime I use a foundation whither it be powder, liquid, etc, it always cakes up, especially around my mouth and upper lip and I just need a good foundation recommendation that wont cake on.

What is the best under eye concealer that is not drying and won't settle into my wrinkles and crows feet?
