What foundation colour would I be for YSL Ink Foundation?
Hi, My sephora doesn't yet have the YSL ink foundation so that i can get colour matched. And I heard that its a really great formula but don't want to buy the wrong shade   I'm #3 in Guerlain's LdP and 300 in Dior's Airflash foundation.  Can someone please recommend me a shade for the new YSL foundation?   Thanks!

foundation advice
Hello! Recently, my foundation has not been looking its best. I have acne-prone, combination oily skin and I use the clinique acne solutions makeup with the hourglass mineral veil primer. But my foundation has been getting cakey and clinging to dry patches. I haven't changed my skincare much because I use topical gel for my acne at night and my clinique three step system in the morning. Should I get a new foundation? Please help!

what shade of foundation?
Hi! I want to try the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen foundation but I'm not sure what shade will match me as the descriptions online dont include what skin tones/undertones they are best for. My perfect match is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush foundation in Light Beige. Is there a Benefit foundation color similar to this?

How do I choose a foundation??
Hi everyone!   I actually have two questions. I'm looking into purchasing a foundation. I have some acne scars I want to cover, in addition to covering (and possibly treating) new breakouts.    How do I go about picking the right color foundation for me? I know sephora has their Pantone thing but it seems a bit dark in the store, so I don't know if I'd get accurate results.   Secondly, should I be purchasing a concealer to apply before foundation, or would foundation typically be enough?

Getting teeth whitened. Any suggestions?
OK, so I bit the bullet (no pun intended) and made an appointment at my dentist to get my teeth professionally whitened. Anyone have any words of wisdom on preparation, longevity, whitening I can expect, etc? I've questioned my dentist bunches of times (this is not something I just jumped into), but I'd really like some feedback from people who've had it done. I'm looking forward to this, but I'm a little anxious, too!

Having a hard time deciding if I'm warm or cool.
I use Kat Von D' Lock-It Tattoo foundation in Medium 54 which is a good match for me.  54 is described as being for medium complexions w/ yellow-beige undertones.  Prior to finding my match, I bought Medium 53 (doesnt give any info other then being medium) and it was very very yellow on me.  So two questions:    (1) Does this information tell you that I'm warm or cool? (2) What shade would one mix with a foundation that is too yellow?   I hate to throw it away as it's pricey.   Thank you for your time.  Any advise given will be greatly appreciated.

How to get flawless looking skin?
My skin looks fairly bad with foundation up close. I have dry, dehydrated skin that's slightly red. Foundation makes it look really dry and flaky. I can't wear blush because it just blends in with my red skin. Is there anything that I can do or buy that will make it looks flawless in a week. Doesn't have to be natural, I just want my skin to look good with foundation on. I'm fine with getting products for the long term but I'd like some stuff that will make my makeup sit right on my skin and look flawless before I go back to school.

Is Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade actually Waterproof ?
Hi ! I am wondering if the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade is actually waterproof. Meaning, it'll stay on when I'm swimming in chlorine water. I have heard that the product is very versatile. So my fingers are crossed and I hope it'll last in water. I just don't want to last half a day without brows and some eyeliner in school. Thank you

Eye moisturizer
Hi all, I am looking for an eye-area moisturizer and was hoping I could get some great recommendations here.     I don't suffer from puffy eyes or dark circles.  My under-eye area is dry but my lids are oily, and I prefer something as natural as possible or atleast free of parabens, etc.  I used Boscia eye cream awhile back, but I ended up getting some of those little white bumps so discontinued use.   I am not sure if I need an anti-aging cream or not? I am 33, and I have one thin wrinkle on my left eye that gets more noticeable as the day goes on, and some other lines when I smile.   I don't have a preference for day or evening, but if day I would prefer something with SPF.  I should be wearing stuff with spf more than I do...   Thanks!

Large Pores on my nose... Help!!
I have an oily T-zone and very large pores on my nose, I like my makeup to look light and natural and I am loving all of the Korean makeup brands because they fit well with my Asian skin tone. I use a lightweight jelly BB cream and a heavier "pore control" BB cream underneath in areas where I need more coverage.   This foundation combination is fine, but it lately it's been settling into the pores on my nose and around my T-zone area, making them look large and my makeup kind of cakey just in that area. I've been trying Urban Decay's all nighter makeup setting spray and I love it, but it's just not enough to control my oil either.    I'm wondering if I need to try a different setting powder, primer, or both or something else entirely! I'm down to try anything honestly.

I have a reddish/dark spot on my face that is a scar, but has the same looks and feel as a birthmark. I'm looking for a concealer that will complete cover it, and a foundation that will blend well with it, but also something that's not too heavy.
