Hi, I need help picking out a primer. I have very fair skin and it is often very pinkish/red. I put on my foundation but most of the time it's very hard to cover up the redness no matter how many layers I add. I also have some acne marks on my skin. Not really scars, just some spots that won't go away. Can anyone suggest a good primer to help me?
I have used hydrocortisone cream for years on my eyes to treat eczema, since I was a little kid. Now that Im getting older I have realized the side effects of hydrocortisone used for a prolonged time and want to prevent thinning and repair my skin. I am basically looking for a hydrating eye cream that will assist with this if it even exists lol, not sure if thats asking too much but I have no idea where do even begin there are so many eye creams! Thanks
I've been looking for an eyeshadow palette that contains mostly purple hues (neutral ones and maybe a couple brighter)- I can't seem to find one. Does anyone know of a palette that would match my description?
Hi guys! I need help choosing my Dipbrow Pomade color. I am very pale with dark brown hair and with cool undertones in both skin and hair. I'm leaning towards buying Ebony but I don't know if it will look to harsh on me. Thanks in advance for everything
Can I get an in-store sample of a highlighter? I'm a newbie to the world of highlighting so I'd like to try one before I buy one. I know the samples have to be in liquid form or at least loose powder. Are there any good highlighters that you recommend and are also available for me to take home as a sample?
I am oily in the t zone and have tried foundation before but quit wearing it because it always felt too heavy and would wear off during the day. I want some type of coverage that makes my face look smoother but helps with fine lines and wrinkles and isn't too heavy. I've been reading about bb creams and tinted moisturizers and was wondering if that is the way to go. There are so many products out there and i don't even know where to start. Basically i want some coverage, not too heavy that will stay on throughout the day. Any advice?

Hello, I was just wondering which Sephora store in the NY/NJ area has a a larger/the largest amount of fragrances in store. I have wanted to sample many of these fragrances in person but they are not available at many stores (especially the JcP ones). Thanks!
I bought the Nars concealer in ginger and it was my first concealer and I liked it I guess, I don't think I really understood if I liked it or not at the time. So a year later I bought it again and then after looking at myself in the light one day it had dried orange and it happened every time I wore it. So i bought a new concealer (urban decay one) and it was fine. But what I was wondering if buying the nars concealer a shade lighter would solve it? Or should I just give up on it and buy a different concealer? I really want to like this concealer because so many of my friends swear by it.
Hello! I've been using the naked skin foundation in the shade 2.0 and although it is the perfect colour (meaning that I don't need a lighter or a darker one), I'm not quite sure about the undertone. I wanted to give either 1.5 or 2.5 a try but I don't know which one corresponds to 2.0! Thanks!
I was extremely fortunate to be born with a rare genetic anomaly which keeps me looking younger after menopause. I at 69 look 45. In the hospital for a month I was surrounded w dermatologists taking blood samples. Two of my aunts were similarly gifted - one lived to be 99 the other 107 & my father to 99 - none had the normal signs of aging. I don't want to hide my age - actually I am proud of it and my accomplishments. What is your advice for make-up. I use a very little bit of parure by Guerlain & am ordering their lighter make-up for day. I use a 30 sunblock & have been w Dr. Perricone for years. His neck cream & my genes has kept my neck firm. I also use Perricone night recovery & face lift as well as other products (not piled on top of each other). Believe it or not I at times switch to the Olay regenerist line where I do see results, especially filling. But I will not say good-bye to restyln(sp?) as it can give me a lower eye fill where my skin is thin & and fill out the lower face. I am fair & have always stayed out of the sun but ride horses & then use 50 sunblock ever hour & half. Diet is not as good but I am a vegetarian who prefers to eat solids with soy, cheese, and nut protein. i also do curry, Vegetarian Chile. Occasionaly I get a craving & have a premium steak - I'm guilty but can't help it. It usually doesn't agree w me so I don't have it often.. Anyway I am normal, not dry or oily. Any make up recs would be appreciated.
I'm looking for the best brush to apply liquid foundation without it being streaky. I have tried both a traditional flat foundation brush, and a shorter bristles rounded brush from Sephora and both leave the finish looking streaky. I use a few different foundations, but the MUFE Ultra HD Invisible Coverage is my go-to.
I've looked around at previous topics but I'm not finding any great answers, so I'm hoping all of you great folks might have some suggestions. Lately when I put on moisturizer my skin just feels really sticky. It actually starts feeling that way after applying serum. I don't know if it's due to weather changes or if I'm missing something from my routine, but it's not fun. A finishing powder does help, but I don't know if that's my only solution. For background, I'm 49 1/2, my skin is fair. It can often be dry, and certainly a bit tight after washing, but does get oilier in the T-zone, especially now. I have been told that I have very good skin (especially if someone is doing my makeup). I have a bit of hyperpigmentation (mostly on the neck now, the face is definitely better and I think the Vital Light has helped that) that drives me nuts. Other than forehead furrows wrinkles and fine lines are not too big a problem, though I'm sure that they are on their way. Right now in the morning I wash with Philosophy's Microdelivery exfoliating wash, use Clarins' Vital Light Serum, and I've been trying various moisturizers. I have Philosophy's Hope in a Jar and Lancome's Bienfait Lotion SPF 30. (And I was just trying a Bare Minerals sample over the holiday weekend.) Or sometimes I just apply my Dr Jart BB cream. In the evening I wash with Philosophy Purity Made Simple, apply Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough serum, then night cream. (Hope in a Jar Night right now, although I was using an Algenist sample over the weekend and used that before the Hope in a Jar before it ran out.) Once a week I also use Philosophy's triple acid peel between washing and applying the serum, giving each some time to soak in (and not washing that peel off). I used it last night and every thing just felt sticky, sticky, sticky. (I do find the When Hope Is Not Enough often feels sticky, which is part of why I use it at night. I am never sticky in the morning.) So, am I using too much? Not the right thing? Missing something that would help things absorb better? I seem to have accumulated a number of samples so I could certainly try out other things for a while. A couple of years ago I had a great set of Guerlain Super Aqua samples and my skin never felt so smooth and so soft, but that is quite an expensive investment! Any thoughts/suggestions are greatfully appreciated!
So I am having a hard time finding a right foundation. I don't like super heavy coverage. My problem is no matter what I use, after I exfoliate, moisturize and use a primer, my foundation "melts" by my nose, between my eyes and around my eyebrows and looks blotchy and gross. I use a good face powder (I don't think my setting is the issue anyway). Can someone recommend something or what the heck is going on I hate it :'( I look so bad after a few hours and have to wipe it all off.
hello! 21 year old male, work outside everyday in construction so I use Jack Black skincare line from Sephora to prevent aging. I have great skin and no under eye wrinkles or circles, but I want to start using an eye cream to simply prevent aging, any reccomendations? Thanks!
