Non -comedogenic powder?
So I am currently using Epiduo (to get rid of acne as recommended by my doctor) and I want to wear light makeup just to make my face look a little better and not so red. When using Epiduo, you are only supposed to wear non-comedogenic makeup. So I was looking for a BB cream and powder that are non-comedogenic. I found the Aveeno clear complexion BB cream which is non-comedogenic (which I haven't bought yet), so I thought I would try that. But I have yet to find a non-comedogenic powder. Know any good ones? Also if anyone else is using Epiduo, let me know your experience with wearing makeup, I'm a kind of scared because I only wear mascara right now and my skin is so sensitive that it hurts a little to remove it.

Which Make Up is Best?????
I am looking for a good foundation to make my skin look flawless, I was using Covergirl but I want something more medium to full coverage. I'm very pale, you can actually see the veins at the corners of my eyes and mouth. I also have oily, uneven skin, dark puffy circles under my eyes (that are hereditary) and I'm starting to get crow's feet! I've tried Lorac foundation and hated it, it caked really badly. I want a make up that is going to go on smooth and matte and not crease or wear off. I also need advice on a good primer.

Wanna use primer but very oily skin
Hi I'm new here.  I'm looking to start using a primer but I've never used that before.  My skin is very oily and usually whithin 2-3 hours my foundation stops working.  My face will start getting oily again.  Or are there any other suggestions to help my makeup last longer and face less oily??

best tarte color/shade blush for redness/slight roscea
I recently bought tarte liquid foundation-tan honey shade. At the store she put a blush on me (I didn't buy it then) copied down the shade and LOST the name. It was tarte and perfect for my skin tone. I have a reddened tone and the foundation was great but the blush that was a non-pink color helped my skin tone also. Any ideas what shade I should buy for the blush and not redden my skin color to help compliment the foundation? thanks!!

Streamlining face makeup routine- with consideration for acne.
Hellooo Beauty Talk!   I recently posted asking for the best all-in-one foundation so I can streamline the routine. I've been using a drugstore set (Maybelline Fit Me) out of habit and want to step up my game. Andy reccomended NARS and I'm pretty jazzed about its great reviews, but I guess I really can't do JUST foundation. Here's the lowdown:   I'm working on clearing up my acne (yay, being responsible and washing my face every day), so I'd like to keep as few products on my face as possible, while still hiding what blemishes I have until I have better skin. BB's and CC's just don't provide heavy enough coverage as much as I like their multitasking abilities. So, based on rudimentary research and what I know, I'd like to streamline the face to a primer and foundation, and powder if I MUST, though I'd like to avoid it. I'm considering using a Smashbox Primer, either the Photo Finish More Than Primer - Blemish Control, or Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer. Do I need to use a salicylic acid moisturizer if I use the Blemish Control primer? Can I use the Color Correcting primer all over or just red spots?   After this, foundation per earlier post.   Finally, I'm guessing powder is completely optional depending on if I like how my foundation finishes. Right?   If anyone is going through something similar, has multitasking product reccomendations, or advice in general, I could really use it!   XO RedFoxHeidi

New Fresh Lip Serum and lip conditioner
I kind of have 2 questions - I am using the Fresh Lip Serum every night - am I understanding correctly that you should use a lip balm/conditioner over it?    If so, that's my second question - recommendations. I have used Fresh's Advanced lip conditioner and I do like it but just looking to try something else.   I don't want SPF as I only use this at night, and I don't like pots - I like products in tubes that I can apply directly to my lips. I also don't like anything too wet and gooey. I bought MACs Lip Conditioner and I hate how gooey it is.    Any suggestions besides the Fresh ones?

which shade in Bobbi Brown corrector???
I have a light complexion with yellow undertone. I use the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation in the shade fair-light neutral and Nars moisturizer in the shade  Alaska . My UNDER EYE CIRCLE is really bad... I tried the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard, but it did not really help with my dark circles. That's when I decided to get this corrector. But I am really confused about he shades chooses. Should I get in Light to Medium Bisque or peach or what?

Clarisonic delicate or sensitive brush?????
So I've been using my Clarisonic Mia 2 for about 3 weeks now with the sensitive brush head. For the past week and a half, I've been breaking out like crazy on my forehead (which is very unusual) and getting a few pimples on my chin and cheeks. Do you think this is due to the brush being too harsh for me or do you think this is the "purging" stage that so many people experience? Should I switch brushes or wait it out? Does anyone have any personal experiences similar???
