I have been using the Make Up For Ever HD Foundation for almost a year now. I like it because it feels light on my skin and it's buildable, but I've noticed in pictures my cheeks and chin look especially shiny. I don't like the way my face looks in pictures at all with the makeup on even though it doesn't seem extra shiny when I look in the mirror. I also use Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder to set my foundation, but have only been using that for about a month. I used to consider my skin dry but now I would say it's more normal/combination. Should I add something into my routine or switch products? Please help!
Looking for tip on flawless application of the UD naked weightless foundation. Purchased starter kit although bb cream included seems to dry for my skin type. Combo skin with dry flaky patches which always seem to get noticeable within a few hours. I tried moisturizing really well before priming but no luck. by noon I'm a shiny, Cakey & flaking! Any tips on achieving that flawless look???
I know I wont see results immediately but did you guys ever try eye creams and saw results fairly quickly in the reduction of dark circles? I have not found a concealer to hide my dark circles! I've tried soo many the list is endless - Bobbi Brown, Nars, Clinique, MUFE, Amazing Cosmetics, etc..Soo now its time to heal my dark circles rather than hide! Any suggestions would be highly appreciated! =)
I have been using Philosophy's Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin SPF moisturizer for a couple of years now, but I now find that it is discontinued. I am looking for a replacement product. I have combination skin that is especially dry now that the wintertime has come. It can also be sensitive to trying out new products. I also have my face waxed, so I want to make sure that any products I use do not cause this to irritate my skin. I prefer that my moisturizer be fragrance-free, or at least close to this. Please help!
Hey guys! So I'm 17 years old and I'm about to get a mole removed from my right cheek. It's a medium sized mole, it lays basically flat, dark brown, and I've had it since I was a toddler. Since I've had it so long, I'm getting a deep excision to get the roots out as well, which means there will be a few stitches involved. I have good skin otherwise and I haven't worn concealer or foundation very much in my lifetime. However, while the scar is healing I would like a concealer, foundation, and powder routine to minimize the appearance of the scar. I'm definitely going to wait until the doctor says it is safe to use makeup on the area. I'm having a hard time determining my skin type because I seem to be a little oily and a little dry. I would love a medium/full coverage foundation that looks and feels natural. I am caucasian with fairly pale skin. Please send me advice! Thanks!
Hi, What color should match me for the Guerlain foundation? I'm about to buy one. My Color IQ number is 2Y07. I am using Laura Mercier Supreme Foundation in Sunny Beige and Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Punjab. Thank you!
My BFF is 38 and diagnosed with breast cancer only weeks ago. Had a mastectomy already and will have axillary dissection next week. Chemo will start within a month and oncologist was direct in that her meds will cause hair loss - including brows and lashes. Being scared is hard enough - I need to have brow stencils (with all needed make-up) and false lashes (with any needed tools: glue, liner, etc.) for her this weekend. She is white (but darker white/tan) with green eyes and (natural) brown/dirty blond hair. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated <3
Hi, I've been a VIB for a few years now and was subscribed to the emails. I spent the last year in Australia therefore did not go to sephora during that time. I don't know what happened but all of a sudden I've stopped getting emails from sephora and would love to. I wondered if it was my email and changed my email but still nothing. I've gone into the store and changed my setting and called sephora help line NUMEROUS times and still nada. I really need someone's help!
I have a few pore minimizing primers that work during my summer oily days, but because it's getting colder, I'm finding that my makeup just completely dries out the areas of my skin with acne. So now, not only does my face makeup barely last, but it flakes off and ends up making my acne much more noticeable. I try to keep my skin as moisturized as I can, but even on okay days I get flakes!!! I desperately need a primer that smooths over my acne, keeps my face flake free, and won't break me out any further. I've been using LM's oil free TM, NYX's photo hd concealer, and Tarte's loose powder for the past few weeks. If you have any foundation or concealer recommendations those would be great too. Thanks!
I want to purchase the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB tinted moisturizer but am not sure of the shade. According to the color match, I am 4Y08 but am unable to determine which shade would be best with this color match.
So I really think that I wont be able to do this but can I return a product If I don't have the packaging it came in or the recite? cause I got a BB cream as a gift and its way the wrong color and I want to exchange it but will I be aloud?
I am a former strawberry blonde/copper redhead with blonde eyebrows, lashes, etc., blue under-toned pale skin, grey eyes, and have just faded to white with a hint of red due to illness, and have NO idea what color makeup to use anymore. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I have the beauty blender and I absolutely love it! However I don't want to purchase the Beauty Blender Sponge Cleanser. Its too expensive in my opinion. Any easier methods to clean it. I cant get the stains off the foundation off the bottom of my beauty blender.
So I have never owned a urban decay naked palette and I'm finally gonna do it! I am not really interested in the Naked 1 but the naked 2 and naked 3 and basic i really like! I have very fair skin, green eyes, and brownish hair, which palette do you think will be best for me? I saw the Naked 3 its not at sephora yet but include that one to i don't my eyeshadow too look like to harsh or muggy on me, something neutral and just very flattering.
I have a few questions. I am 39, olive skinned, with somewhat dark circles under my eyes. I have always just worn a moisturizer, under eye concealer, with MAC bronzer. I would like to improve my glow and decrease the amount of visible line on my face and, dark circles under my eyes. I have used Tarte under eye concealer and it works okay, not great. I have also used Lancôme, that is the best I've found so far. Any other suggestions out there for under eye concealers? As for the rest of my face, I am looking at using a BB cream but, haven't before. Any suggestions on which one and, do I use a bronzer on top of it? Lastly, I would like to add a little "flush" to my cheeks. Which, makes me wonder if I should stick to a BB OR bronzer but not both so I don't look to made up. Any help on a good blush that gives that flushed or glow look? ANY help is so appreciated!! Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Hi, I've been trying out new foundations lately and I've been wearing Lancôme Teint Idole 24 Hr in Bisque 430 C but I'm looking for the Dual Finish powder to go with it for a full coverage effect. What do the experts suggest? Bisque 420 C looks like it maybe too light but I haven't seen it in person yet.
So I was looking for a hydrating mask without fragrance and all that icky stuff. And I narrowed it down to 2. Can you guys give me your opinion on the one you like more? Here's a picture of a bunny in thanks
