I'm trying to decide on which shade I should get from this line. Aiming for towards Shell or Nude. I'm an NC25 in Mac, Nars: Alaska for winter and St. Moritz for summer. In Giorgio Armani Luminous silk, I use 4.5. Can anybody help? I called into Hourglass and that was no help whatsoever although the rep was very nice.
Seeing as how I cant get it from Sephora anymore, I am looking on both dermstore and the sunday riley site but don't see Luna anywhere. Any suggestions on where to order it from? I will be forever grateful!
I have had my foundation/ concealer/ eyeliner/ mascara game perfected for a while now but I desperately need color help. I wear the same three eyeshadows (Urban Decay baked, half baked, and ) along with chapstick or a barely pink gloss everyday. Please advise eyeshadows and lip colors for me. I have medium blonde hair, blue eyes, and my skin is fair with a lot of gold tones in it. Thank you!
I have sensitive combo skin, and have a few fine lines. I've always assumed that a Clarisonic would do more harm than good as the bristles looked harsh to use on skin, and I've read mixed reviews on whether or not chemical or physical exfoliators are best. Can anyone share their opinion on them, or any recommendations?
I don't usually use SPF products unless they come in my foundation. I don't spend hours upon hours outdoors so I never really felt the need to wear SPF. I'm going to be spending the day at the waterpark next week and I know that I seriously need some SPF or I'll be red like a tomato, no joke. I plan on buying a bottle of L'Oreal Ombrelle to use on my body, probably with an SPF of 30-45. I'm not sure if this is good to use on my face, I don't want it to break me out and I'm not sure if I'll be wearing makeup yet, I guess it depends on how hot it is and if I really want to deal with the maintenance of it while wet. I might just slap on my Too Faced BB cream which has SPF20. I do have a sample of the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield that I got with my last order so I was thinking of using this, either under my makeup or alone. Is this a good product and will my makeup go on smoothly? Is there anything that's better that I should buy (specifically for my face)? It needs to be somewhat waterproof and have good lasting power. Keep in mind that I'm in Canada so there are certain brands I won't be able to order from Sephora. And lastly, what waterproof basic makeup products do I need?
My new love is taupe lips...undertones more in the lilac or grey world than the more brown versions. But I'm finding blush hard. And I learned (via a MAC SA) how to wear those deep, almost black lip shades (the right blush and a little black eye liner). Certain looks are harder to make work than others. What tips do you have for those less simple colors and looks...that make them work? So other examples are purple or lilac lips...the blush has to be cool with a blue or purple undertone. Too much pastel and I need some black shadow in the crease and/or black eye liner. So...how do you pull off taupe lips and other less than easy to balance looks?
I'm looking for a finishing spray or a facial mist/toner that I can also use after makeup application. I already have the skindinavia setting spray, but I don't use that everyday because of the alcohol content, so basically I just want something to make my makeup appear less powdery/more blended on days when I choose not to use a setting spray. There seem to be so many options that I'm not sure what to try. I have combination to dry skin. I am also very sensitive to fragrance. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
I have oily skin ( shiny forehead, nose and chin pores everywhere my face and blackheads on my nose. I use cetaphil to cleanse my face everyday.

I have caramel colored skin (I do have the smashbox foundation liquid halo in no.7 just to give an idea). And I get oily skin in the hot weather and I do have acne scarring and partially sun burnt skin mostly on forehead and chin and the upper part of my nose. My main problem is finding the right foundation that doesn't give the translucent effect so that you don't see the scarring and that can last most of the day and feels light! Also that looks very natural on my skin. I do have a tad bit larger pores that are visible from close up and that gets a little bumpy in the hot weather. I don't have anymore acne or pimples just scars that are slightly prominent. Please help me on this it's really a problem. I really want something that makes my skin look lighter and fair and match my skin tone of my neck that is about 3-4 shades lighter. Thank you!
So, I've been looking back at this picture for quite a while now. My question is: How you do make your eyes look that expressive with just eyeshadows?! I'd love to know how to achieve this, technique wise. And, since I know the eyeshadows' color play a big role in the look too, I'd appreciate some product recommendations too.

So my smile isn't looking too good on account of the fact that I didn't take good care of it in my younger years. My fault of course. It's not too bad but I'd love to whitenn it up to feel more confident. There's so many different things out there so I thought I'd ask here. I don't really have a budget. Something that I can also easily attain since I live Canada, I don't mind getting stuff shipped in. Thanks in advance!
So my friends birthday is coming and and she asked for and I quote: "Any mascara that will make my **bleep** eyelashes POP!" So i was wondering what would be better..a great mascara or a tube of eyelash enhancers? What brands are the best for big lashes? Im more of a lipstick/eyeliner gal so I need some expertise!
What is the best cleanser and moisturizer (one for day with SPF, one for night without), to use to cleanse & then hydrate sensitive, dehydrated, slightly combo to pretty dry, skin that is about to be treated with Differin (prescription topical retinoid) and Duac (prescription topical containing benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin) for moderate acne? I know my skin is already sensitive & VERY prone to dryness/dehydration, yet also prone to clogged pores, obviously. PLEASE HELP!! Thank you in advance!
What is the best cleanser/treatment for clogged large pores on nose and cheek area. I feel as though my skin is rougher there and you can usually see small bumps when I have foundation on. What should I do about this to make my skin clear and not have as many clogged pores? Thanks!!
Hi! I usually wear the Becca Ultimate foundation Crème in color Nude, I wanted to try the Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink...just because the Sephora I usually can get to does not carry Becca, which color would be a good match? Or what would be another great full coverage foundation? Thanks!
I wear a BB cream called Missha M perfect cover cream in shade # 21 (light beigh) However, I have oily skin (looking for oil free make up products) and it wears off but I still like it because it's oil free. My skin gets oily /shiny on my forehead, nose and chin. How can I fix this? I've been told mineral make is best but how what are your suggestions ? Second , what do girls carry nowadays in their make up bags ? Sorry for asking the same things. I'm a college student that recently became interested in make up.
