I never even thought about wearing foundation. I thought that it would be uneccessary since my skin is fairly okay. I do have acne (mostly blackheads and a few white heads), skin discoloration, and very dark under eye circles. I have also been battling oily skin (sorry to sound extreme lol). I've found nothing really has solved the problem. I currently have found products that help, however my makeup continues to slowly vanish throughout the day. Today at UltaI tried the Amazonian Clay 12 hour full coverage foundation and I fell in love with it! It really made my complexion look so amazing and I was told by the consultant it could potentially keep me even more matte. How anyone with oily skin tried this and liked it? The problem is I am only 15, and I heard once you start wearing foundation you really can't stop. I don't want to mess up my skin and I don't feel I need full coverage. Thoughts? And yes, I have tried Tartes tinted moisturizer/ BB creme and I like it, but I feel it may not keep me as matte and it didn't look as good as the foundation. Wow sorry I've written so much!

Hello   My cousin really loves how I do makeup and wants me to do hers for her wedding.  I am good at makeup but I am no makeup artist.  I did a practice run on her and it turned out fine.  What do you recommend to make this really look like a professional did it.

Thank you!

I have a medium skin tone and I'm thinking of purchasing the new Benefit Cheek Parade because I don't have any blush/highlight palette yet. I have medium to dark skin though, so I'm worried that Hoola won't be useful to me as a bronzer, or the Dandelion just plain won't show. Can I use the Rockateur as a highlight? Is this palette worth it or will I just end up with colors I can't use?   Would you recommend the colors here for people with medium to dark skintone? (I'm NC35, Estee Lauder Tawny) All the videos show girls with fair caucasian skin so I'm worried that even if it looks good on them, it won't on me. 😅   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)       If you wouldn't recommend this, can you recommend me a good blush/highlight/contour palette under $75? I have combination skin that can get a bit oily so maybe powder would be a better choice.

Does anyone know when and if this product will be available in Sephora Canada? It's available in the USA Sephora website and Kate Somerville website.

I heard a lot about this powder but I'm not sure whether to buy it or not. I have dry skin so I like to look dewy/radiant. The shades for my foundations are MUFE ultra hd foundation 117, tarte rainforest of the sea fair light neutral, and too faced born this way pearl. Which "shade" would you reccomend? Or if this powder is not suited for dry skin, then what other powders are good? (I just want to set my makeup but not look satin or matte afterwards)

Hi! These past couple of months I have been using cheaper makeup brands. Now, my skin is starting to react badly to them. I don't break out, but my skin feels like it is burning. I am looking for face products like foundation, concealer, color correctors, and powders (translucent/setting powder and regular face powder). Brands, tips, and any other helpful advice are very much appreciated. Thank you!

Which line is better for acne prone skin with discoloration? I've read that Tiffany Masterson recommends using the same products from one line as they are designed to be used together.

Hi there!   Is there an up-to-date list of silicone-free sephora products? It's been asked before, but it doesn't look like there's ever been a comprehensive answer. I'm specifically looking for foundations, concealers and primers to try for my oh-so silicone-sensitive (dermatologist-tested) skin, and for others with the same sensitivities.    Thanks!

Last time I brought the wrong powder foundation. The liquid deep 74  is a bit orange on me, if it had more of a "yellowish undertone" it would have been perfect(I believe).

Hi there, any recommendations for foundations similar to MUFE Face & Body? I LOVE the formula and the lightness but it is causing me to breakout which is strange since it is mostly water. Thank you!

So there is this product: http://www.sephora.com/beauty-genius-clear-waterproofing-gel-P384062?skuId=1578731&country_switch=ca   It says its ingredient is silicone resin. Lots of people have been saying its the best thing ever to transform any lipstick into a non transfer lip. My question is this, IS is safe if you accidently consume it? I'm not talking about like putting it on your tongue, but if you're placing it on your lips, is that safe? I was trying to look it up. It did say that it could damage your lungs if consumed but I'm not sure if its referring to the same thing? There is information on silicone and resins, lots about silica, but the answers are different... So specifically silicone resin I only found one possible article but I wanted to know if someone might know more?

Hi,  I'm trying to find my shade match for the Marc Jacobs Remarcable foundation. I'm about NC25 in MAC with very strong yellow undertones. Most foundations tend to run pink or orange on me. Thank you!

There is no Sephora near me.  I've purchased the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder in 06, but I look very pale when wearing it.  What shade could I switch to without looking too orange?

Hello everyone,   I want to ask advice for picking the right eyeshadow for myself. I actually own the NAKED Basics and Baked Eyeshadow (PK03) from The Face Shop and I would like to add another palette to my very small collection. I'm very much into simple eyeshadow makeup, something that I can wear on a daily basis. But I'd also want something to wear in some special occasions but again, nothing too dramatic. I was looking at NAKED 3 I really love the colours and I don't mind the pink since I've heard that the palette is subtle(pigment) compared to the first two palettes but I'm not sure if it's a great choice for myself. I'm an NC35 (yellow undertone) with a very dark brown hair and also dark brown eyes (southeast asian). Which palette's would you guys suggest? The highest I can go is $70.   Thanks!

I am going to Mexico in June and I always wear a light foundation at night. Any recommendations on a foundation that won't melt off? I got married in Mexico but I wanted a fuller coverage so I know that Estée Lauder Double Wear is amazing. I also use it all the time but like I said just something lighter. TIA

I normally use the FAB cleanser for sensitive skin. It's not my holy grail by any means but it keeps my skin balanced so it's something I'm constantly coming back to.    Recently however, I've noticed it's just not as hydrating as I once though it was. When I saw that Kate Somerville had this Goatmilk Cleanser coming out I was extremely anxious to try it but wanted to get some feedback before I did so.    Side note: I'm also prescribed Tretinoin which I apply every other night - sometimes only 2-3x per week. It's pretty harsh on my skin, but it works when used religiously.    Should I make the switch?   Thanks in advance   xoxo
