Cleansing oils?
I am 49 years old with combo/sensitive skin- more on the dry side. I have been using purity made simple, both original and gel formulation, but i find it doesn't remove makeup really well. I have tried a sample of the foaming face wash by clinique and works well to remove makeup but now my skin is dry. Wondering about the cleansing oils - and which brand - either philosophy or clinique?

I'm not sure what colour to get!
Hey guys! I've gone in to Sephora multiple times to get colour matched, but every time I go, they match me with a colour that makes me look orange. I'm not sure if it's the lighting in the stores, or if my skin is a stranger colour(?). I have yellow undertones (I believe), and I am Korean. I'm not sure what colour to use in any brand because they never match. I'm a lot tanner than Koreans usually are, but since it's nearing winter, I'm getting paler again and I don't know what colour to get in foundation and concealer. Help?

I would get swatched on the jawline and step outside the store to look at it in a more natural light. You can even ask for samples to take home and try first. see post

Having lots of trouble with my skin/makeup
I posted a question about this problem before. My makeup hasn't been setting on my skin lately. At first it was only a problem on my nose, and it would look dry and blotchy. Since then, I have noticed under my eye/cheek region has been very blotchy looking as well. I moisturize my skin every morning and night with a Cetaphil moisturizer. I've tried using Urban Decay's Complexion Primer Potion and I've used many different brand foundations to try to find the problem. Nothing has really changed. I went to a local Sephora and talked to a skin expert about the problem. She gave me a sample of Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate & Perricone's Blue Plasma. Neither of those seemed to work. My makeup just looks patchy and splotchy on my face. Since getting older, I have found myself to have drier skin. I have never had this problem before and have been able to use any foundations or primers without any problem. Has anyone had this problem or have a suggestion to the next step I should take in treating this problem?

Mid-50s eye makeup update ideas
I need advice for eye makeup now that I'm in my mid-50s.  My  eyelids are crepey and droopy.  I also have very small, downturned eyes.  My coloring is starting to washout, and my old, reliable makeup colors and looks are not working any more.  I have dark blonde hair with copper-ish lowlights.  I have a good skincare regimen, what I need is recommendations for colors/products for eye make up.  What colors?  What kind of eyeliner (if any) is best on my crepey, small lids?

What is your favorite eye makeup remover?
I have used Lancome's Bi Facial with reasonably good results, but I was hoping I could find something that removed the mascara with fewer swipes (hoping to minimize damage to the eye area).  I tried MUFE Sens Eyes and it really burned the skin around my eyes, which was a disappointment, since the cream seemed to be more effective than the liquid formulas I've been using.  I want something without mineral oil as I have had problems with that before.  Any suggestions?

Q. Sudden change in skin?
So up until recently, about a month and a half ago, I had extremely dry skin, so dry it would crack if I missed a part of my skincare regimen. I finally had it nearly under control and now my skin has done a complete 180. I'm so oily my makeup slides down my face in about an hour! The only thing I really changed was my foundation, I started using bare minerals bareskin. The weather is also changing but it's about the time where my dry skin just gets drier. I have no idea where to even start with the oily slop that is my face right now. What new regimen can I start to control this? What makeup with work with this? What products (skincare and makeup) will help this? Pretty soon I'll be drowning in my own face grease!

Difference between Cameo and Medium Beige in Dior foundation?
Hello! I have Dior Forever Compact Powder foundation, which I love, in Cameo but it's a tad too light. Is Medium Beige a lot darker? My undertone is cool/neutral. When I tried Rosy Beige in the store it was too dark and reddish, and Light Beige was way too light. Not sure what peachy undertones are, but I'm guessing the Peach shade would be too orange on me.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good foundation for a pale olive skin? I have given up on liquid, but i'd like to find some. I've been using physicians formula Organic Wear loose powder.

Q. Would appreciate advice on best color to choose from Hourglass Ambient Blush
I am new to Hourglass. I have read different reviews and am also looking at the 3 shade set. I don't know what would work! I am in my mid 40s, live in the Upper Midwest (so tan fades as the daylight does). I have brown eyes, short auburn hair, fair skinned and have redness from rosacea on the apples of my cheeks. I also have oily skin/combination skin. Would the set's three colors work? Or am I better off trying a more universally flattering shade. I want something natural for everyday professional office use. Many thanks!

Mac Pro Longwear Foundation and Nars Sheer Glow
Hellooo,   I have the Mac Pro Longwear Makeup foundation in the Shade NW15 and I read about the undertones, since I wanted to change to Nars Sheer Glow.  Now I actually have a yellow undertone but everyone says NW15 has a pink undertone.   I looked up at foundation matrix pages to see which shade from Nars Sheer Glow would fit and it says Mont Blanc which is a foundation with a pink undertone.   The mac foundation fits perfectly...I'm confused   P.s it says that the colour of your veins helps...well mine have more of a greenish colour   thanks for the help
