I've been having a really difficult time finding a makeup that suits my skin. My foundation makeup separates, or kind of curdles, and settles into my pores not long after application. I've tried cheap stuff and expensive brands too many to name - and none of them work. One of the problems is I have roseacea. I'm also very fair and have pinkish undertones, so many makeups look far too orange or yellow on me, or they're too dark. I've tried Clinique's anti-redness line and hated it, and I've also used Bare Minerals but if left my skin feeling dry and itchy. Any ideas? Thanks!
Hi, my skin is extremely oily and my makeup seems to slide off my face. I love my foundation but I am looking for a new setting spray, primer, and setting powder. What should I use? I like the matte look. Thank you
I wear the tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 in the shade Light-Neutral. What would be the best concealer match for that foundation? Preferably something I could use for both under eye circles and blemishes.

Hi All! I am looking for something similar to Cover/FX BB gel Mattifying anti-blemish treatment in N light. I have loved the product for several years and it is currently unavailable in the US. Any suggestions on a substitute? Thank you in advance!
So i used to use a pencil to shape my brows instead of filling because naturally they are thick, but then they started falling out so i started to use a powder but they are still falling out a lot to the point where i cant just stop using it. I have tried using $80 products to grow them back but it isn't working. Do you recommend any powders or eyebrow growth serums? Btw i use loreal powder
2 days ago I used a pore refining mask. I think I might have put a little of it around my eye area because the next morning I woke up and the outside slits of my eyes were really red and sore. And I suddenly have wrinkles under my eyes. They look shriveled up. This is day 3 now and they still are sore and wrinkled. Not sure what I did or what I can do to fix this?

I'm looking to buy a lot of makeup for my friend, but since he has an aesthetic going on with his makeup, id like to only buy makeup that comes in pastel packaging, preferably pastel pink. Currently all i know to get is the Too Faced SweetPeach palette and the Babylicious brush set. Do you know of any makeup brands with packaging that fits that description?
Hello, I purchased the Fresh Seaberry cleansing oil a few months ago and loved it. I'm about halfway through the bottle, and when I went to wash my face tonight, I noticed there were...globules? in the bottle. I'm sorry to sound gross, I don't know how else to describe it, it looked like there was mucous in the bottle. Ive never opened the bottle, it's well insulated from light? What might this be?
Hey y'all, I've had acne since I was a teen and am still struggling with it as a 26-year old. I used to be on topical medications but switched to a pill called spironolactone a little less than a year ago. It's been a life saver and I've been able to stop using my prescription topical creams. However, because spiro cleared up my skin tremendously and because I am also a Sephora employee, I've been experimenting with new skincare. I recently broke out horribly after using a combination of the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel and Josie Maran's spf 47 moisturizer (I used Ole's night treatment for almost three weeks without breakouts until I incorporated Josie's sunscreen, which broke me out immediately). I've since stopped using both because my skin was aggravated and dry, on top of breaking out. Since I've stopped using these two products, I incorporated Sunday Riley's UFO oil into my night routine. I love that this doesn't dry my skin out and has a BHA. I've been using this for roughly 5 nights and while my acne is beginning to get less and less, I still have a few new pimples that pop up every other day or so. Here is my current routine: AM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser -First Aid Beauty Vitamin Mist as a toner -Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter *days without makeup I use Supergoop's Mineral Sunscreen in place of the argan face butter, otherwise I use a BB cream w/spf as my "foundation" PM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser (sometimes I use First Aid Beauty's Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser if breakouts are horrible) - Sunday Riley U.F.O. oil - Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter My skin is combination oily with most oil in the t-zone and cheeks and dryness where my acne occurs which is along my jawline, lower cheeks, and neck. I am also sensitive. I am hoping for a recommendation on a potentially new or improved skincare routine based on these concerns. My biggest concerns are acne and small white bumps of texture. Otherwise, my skin is fortunately pit-free as I never picked my acne too much! I do also prefer a cruelty-free skincare routine <3
I've been wanting to find a brownish matte lipstick for such a long time but have struggled finding the exact color i like for my medium toned skin (Indian). I came across Priyanka Chopra's picture today and fell in love with her lip color. Can someone help me find a brand that sells something similar to her color?
I currently use Bobbi Brown's Tinted Eye Brightener in Light Bisque. This is a perfect match as my under eye concealer, and I love this product. Unfortunately it has been discontinued and I am looking for a new under eye concealer whose shade, consistency, and appearance can recreate the natural look I get with Bobbi Brown's Tinted Eye Brightener.I have tried Bobbi Brown's Serum Concealers and Correctors which the brand recommended, but I was extremely unhappy with this recommendation in both the shade and appearance.Any brands and/or shade recommendations to replace this product would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I'm looking to find new concealer, foundation and mascara, but have a great deal of trouble with sensitive/dry/flaky skin. I also have allergies to Propolis (anything from a beehive- ie;bees wax, honey) sunflower and fragrance. Am I totally out of luck? Most products I've found that tick the allergy boxes, are just horrible on my dry/flaky patches. TIA
Hey beauties. Okay so i have a huge problem. So my skin is completely crazy. I have acne prone skin, my pimples dont get huge but you can notice them, i have so many acne scars too. Whenever i try putting on foundation, i do everything like everyone else (moisturizer then primer then foundation, for primer is use the Smash box Pore Minimizing one) My face is both oily and dry. But i tend to have dry patches on my cheeks when i put on foundation, like it makes it look cakey, and also you can tell i have dry patches. Is there anyone who had to deal with this? Can you guys please help me out, any tips would be amazing. I honestly sometimes just want to wear makeup and feel pretty but i feel like i can never with this going on.
I have strawberry blonde hair, hazel (mostly green) eyes, and fair skin (Kat Von D lock it foundation in 44 during the winter.. not sure what my summer color is) and I need help finding a a bronzer that isn't too dark or shimmery, blush that isn't too orangy peach or too pink, and a self tanner for my face and neck that isn't too dark or too orange. Also, I haven't worn eye shadow in forever because the purple and green colors people usually recommend are always too dark for my comfort. Any suggestions? Preferably specific colors because it's difficult for me to get to a Sephora location so I shop online. Thank you!!!
