Does Sephora accept empty perfume bottles for recycling? I've read online that if you have a certain amount of empty bottles from a particular perfume company, you can get a discount on your next bottle. This is a great recycle program, but I like to wear a lot of scents and have lots of different empty bottles I'm not sure what to do with. i'd hate to throw out perfectly good, pretty glass containers, but they're starting to pile up. Any suggestions?

For the past few months, my foundation will be disgusting after a few hours  of wear. I clean my brushes, i use a primer and moisturize. i have dry skin and exfoliate atlas twice a week. But i don't know what is causing my make up to look like this! Now it'll look horrible from the start, when it used to be a few hours into it when it would separate. Please help. I don't even want to wear makeup any

Hey, I'm an absolute noob when it comes to makeup but I really want to learn how to do it. I'm vaguely familiar with eye shadow, eyeliner and lipstick. I've never used contour, concealer or any of the other products I've seen on here. So, my question is; what products should I buy for eyes, face, brows and lips. Also, how much can I expect to spend? Thank you!

I am DESPERATELY seeking a dupe for Sephora's Color Reveal Lip Balm.  I bought it a few months ago (originally $13, bought on sale for $7!!) and am obsessed with it, but it looks like they discontinued it.  It was super moisturizing and brought out my natural lip color in such a beautiful way.  Does anyone know of any alternatives that aren't super expensive (I'm looking at you Dior Addict Lip Glow) for a lip balm that enhances natural lip color- sold by Sephora or elsewhere!?

Help. I have very pale, red skin as a surface tone. and I my veins are all obviously extremely blue, I remember once an MUA told me to stick to peachy or coral blushes.. but I can't remember why, if it was my undertone or my redness. I am trying to buy EX1 invisiwwear liquid foundation, and I need to know what shade to get.

I have fairly sensitive skin that is also oily and acne prone. I have larger pores, texture, and hyper pigmentation from acne scars. I bought the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads and the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Nigh Treatment. Would you recommend using both of these nightly, or alternating them which is what I've been doing recently? I'm also considering switching the Invigorating Night Treatment for the Truth Serum to use in combination with the pads.

Hello! Every time I use eyeliner, it smudges and doesn't show. I get near my lash line, but when I look in the mirror, the eyeliner is gone. and after I blink a couple times, it smudges. What type of eyeliner should I get and what should be its base? So far, I've been using the Marc Jacob's liquid eyeliner from the birthday gift set. I've been told to just put eyeliner on my water line, but it really just makes me tear up too much and is uncomfortable to wipe off. I would also like the black to be very pigmented. Thanks!   The picture is my eyes without any makeup. There is a little bit of my eye crease visible only in my inner corners.

Hello! I am having a hard time choosing the perfect foundation for my skin color. I think I am cool toned and I have slightly dry skin. Can someone recommend a foundation that will be suitable for my skin type and color? Also as you can see in the photo I have a lot of random blotches of redness. Does anyone know a good skin care product that can cure my redness. I also dislike how I have little little pimples as small as my pores! What are these kind of pimples called and how can I get rid of them??   Sorry for so many questions, I look forward to your advice!

My face...   * A little longer than it is wide, but not by much * Widest point is my cheekbones (I feel like they would look really nice if my cheeks weren't so damn chubby) * Chubby cheeks * Sharp jawline (not curved, it's very pointed) * Smallest point on my face would be my chin, but my chin is rounded, not pointy *  Sort of like an upside down triangle, except my cheeks are wider  * Not sure if this helps or not, but my eyes are very round, but very small   I feel like some sites make it sound like a round face, and other make it seem like a heart shaped face. So with my unique input, I was wondering if a makeup artist could help me out here. Thanks!

I'm deciding between the anastasia glow kit in sun dipped or the becca highlighter in opal for my everyday versatile highlighter.  Pros for the glow kit is that it comes with several shades but cons doesn't show up a lot on my cheeks (i wasn't using a brush so that might be the reason).  Pros are the becca is that it goes on my cheeks so easily and shows up really well, but cons is that its only 1 shade.  I'm not sure which one i should get! help!

I love the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation for my dry skin, and it covers the redness in my face that I have been getting from using Retin-A.  I currently have Stromboli, which has the best undertone for my olive skin, but it is too dark now that I haven't been in the sun.  I have tried Santa Fe, but it was really pink.  Shiseido Synchro Skin in Golden 3 is a good reference for the depth of my skin tone in the winter.  What would be a good shade suggestion for Nars ADLW?  I would not mind mixing it with Stromboli if that is best either.  Thank you!

I'm torn between these two primers because I cannot decide which one would be better for my redness. I have normal/oily skin with occasional dryness, and very light skin. Also, I only use powder foundation and concealer. Will using primer under my eyes affect or help with dark circles and/or fine lines?   Thanks in advanced!

Hi there, I've been using better than sex mascara by too faced for a few months. Since starting to use this product, I've noticed my lashes have been thinning and breaking quite a bit. Is there a product you can recommend to reverse this, or a mascara that won't be as damaging?  Thanks!!!
