I have strawberry blonde hair, hazel (mostly green) eyes, and fair skin (Kat Von D lock it foundation in 44 during the winter.. not sure what my summer color is) and I need help finding a a bronzer that isn't too dark or shimmery, blush that isn't too orangy peach or too pink, and a self tanner for my face and neck that isn't too dark or too orange.  Also, I haven't worn eye shadow in forever because the purple and green colors people usually recommend are always too dark for my comfort. Any suggestions? Preferably specific colors because it's difficult for me to get to a Sephora location so I shop online. Thank you!!!

Hi all, recently I've discovered that silicone and talc both wreak havoc on my face and I end up with terrible breakouts. I've been using a great silicone free primer from clarins but now I'm on the hunt for a foundation to fit my needs. Does anyone have a recommendation for something that is both silicone and talc free? I've tried the Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme but it made me really oily by the end of the day. I also tried Bare Minerals but they don't have a good color match for my skin tone. My skin is sensitive, acne prone, and combination leaning more towards the oily side. Thanks!

Hi there! I'm looking for an individual contouring powder that is comparable to the darkest shade on the Smashbox step-by-step Contour Kit Light/Medium.  I only use the darkest shade in that kit, so it is a waste for me to keep buying it. Can you recommend something?  Thank you!

I am looking for a really good primer for oily, acne prone skin and large pores, it needs to hide pores and make skin flawless. Also information on a pairing concealer and setting powder would be wonderful.   I have tried a few and I haven't liked any.. Tried Smashbox and most recently clinique superprimer. it is awful so sad about that

Hi, I've been reading up on the boards and google, but haven't quite found the answer to my question based on my skin type. I'm looking for a primer that will extend the lasting power of my make up. I use LM Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer on an everyday basis and I'm specifically looking for something that's long lasting . I also finish with UD all-nighter.    I've used Smashbox Photo Finish (liked but haven't tried in a couple of years, didn't notice a huge difference in lasting power), and Hourglass Mineral Veil (it didn't really do much for me, the consistency was a little off as it seems it sometimes can be). I would give either of these another try if that's what's recommended.   I have very good skin (it's normal, with some dry patches sometimes) to the point that when I had my makeup done, the girl kept trying to wipe off my make up, and was shocked when she realized I wasn't wearing any on my face. I'm only saying this because I know one of the draws to some primers is how they smooth out the skin (ex. hourglass), and I'm not really interested in that, I'm simply looking for the best long lasting primer.    Thanks for any and all help

I had never used a cream blush before I used my mom's  Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Rose and absolutely fell in love. Paired it with Bobbi Brown lipstick in Brown...again I'm OBSESSED! AND she gave me both SCORE! Loved the cream look so much that I already bought my second shade in powder pink.   Im not 'm thrilled about applying with my fingers I felt like it wasn't blending for a natural look and when I try to blend it more it looks like a messy mistake. But everyone always says to do it with your fingers and no brush. Am I doing it wrong? I feel like I'd just be more precise with a brush. Any suggestions on which? Bobbi website suggests their full coverage face brush but it's a bit pricey of course.      Also I saw in a video (which I can now not find) that there was a technique for applying blush for people with round baby faces I think it was more of a straight angle. I've never contoured  before but I have a baby face! Is there a tip with cream blush for us puffy cheek girls?

Hi, am zee I have a very sensitive face skin, and I want to use perfect moisturizer after washing my face, and am having a problem when I use makeup especially when I have breakout or pimples, I don't know what kind of cream should I use for the breakout and pimples before using makeup, plus I have no idea what kind of primer should I use.

I have slightly oily skin but my acne still flakes. I need a primer that will smooth out my skin as well as pro-long my makeup and a foundation with full to medium coverage that can build without caking/smearing. Also, is there a oil I can put on my acne to prevent it from being so textured and making application easier? I'm not too expandable on money so my range is drugstore to anything $40 and under. Please help!!!

i just acquired a dark area -a line above half my lip on my skin. It seems like concealer and foundation make it more noticeable. What can i use to cover this??
Ask The Experts
I've been using Bare Minerals original foundation for at least 10 years. Lately I don't feel like I get the coverage that I used to. I would like to try something different but I don't live anywhere near a store to get help picking a new one out. I do have issues with acne so I don't want anything super heavy or oily. I've been reading the reviews on the Urban Decay Weightless ultra definition liquid makeup. Any thoughts on that one? or any other recommendations? I wear medium beige in bare minerals. Thanks in advance!

Hi all,   I have extremely dark and oily eyelids as well as seriously dark circles.  I have tried every eye primer under the sun, and none really work. I recently read about putting concealer on my eyelids, setting with powder, and applying eyeshadow over that.  If I conceal my eyelids - would I still use a primer over that?  A little confused about this step.    Thank you!

Hello, I am the shade Y215 in Makeup Forever's Water Blend Face and Body Foundation. I am wanting to purchase Makeup Forever's Ultra HD foundation and Too Faced's Born This Way foundation. I do not have a Sephora near me and I was hoping someone could help. I have an olive/yellow undertone and I am kind of on the pale side right now.
