I am 55 years old. I have some acne scars & pores. I have combination skin. It starts off dry , by end of day very oily. I love the smashbox pore minimizer . I use that and the tarte blush (peach color) but my skin still always looks so dull. I have brown hair, brown eyes, and very fair skin. I do no like to wear alot of makeup but nothing seems to cover my scars. I have used the laura mercer tinted moisturizer in the past which goes on nice but by the end of the day I am very oily. I want to keep using the pore minimizer but need something more...possibly a powder that goes on fine, not cakey , that will look natural and will not be oily. I know I cannot look 30 again but I feel so old and dull looking. Thanks. Debbie
I wear bareminerals original foundation in medium beige. I have been using "warmth" as my blush, but I would like to try one of baremineral blushes, but I don't know what color to try. I have medium skin and dark blonde hair. Thanks for any advice!
I've never really understood what kind of skin I have but I know it's a mess, I guess it's some sort of combination skin. Oily on the nose and between the eyes and quite dry on the cheeks. I have large pores on the nose tip and on the cheeks close to the nose area, on those same areas it is also a bit red but I'm not sure if it's because of the large pores? To top it up, my skin is never flawless, I always have some kind of pimple and red dots, even if small, somewhere on my face. I'm using mia2 with the clarisonic pore reducing cleanser, thinking big pores were my main problem. I'm starting to notice that after I've used the mia2 with that cleanser my skin peels off all over my cheeks, the tonic I use afterwards does remove those pellicles but I was just wondering if that meant that I need to use another cleanser? Or is that supposed to make my skin peel off? I hope this isn't too much of a dumb question, I'm really lost when identifiyng which products would be best for my skin type. Thanks in advance for any advice!
Sophie Uliano was recently featured on television, where she shared several tips and advice about makeup and nutrition. She wrote a book entitled: Gorgeous for Good . Since it's so new, my library didn't have it--but I requested for them to purchase it, and they did! I'm currently reading it, and all I can say is WOW! This book is quite simply fabulous! Topics in Sophie's book include: makeup (application and good vs. bad ingredients), skincare, healthy recipes, and simple exercises for every day. I personally like her simple, flexible, and real approach to beauty and am truly inspired by all the information she shares with us. It's not often I come across a book like this, so I just thought I would let you all know about this treasure. It would be a wonderful addition to your collection of books (a fantastic resource), and it would make an awesome Mother's Day gift.
I got a gift card but just a normal one, not a specific one for 45-min custom makeover. The person bought it for me does not know about the custom makeover gift card. He just thought that as long as he bought me $50 gift card, I can get a custom makeover. Can I still use it for a makeover or I have to buy the custom makeover gift card?

Hey guys! I am looking for a hydrating serum. I have combination skin but since I live in Canada, it tends to be a little more on the dry side. I have tried the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum and I liked it but I was told that one is more for brightening. I have also tried the Fresh Rose Hydrating Face Serum and do not feel as though it is actually hydrating. Any recommendations help!
I'm 35 yrs old, ugh, and of course I'm naturally starting to get a few fine lines especially on my forehead. I moisturize alot and my foundation and makeup goes on flawlessly BUT, eventually later I start seeing the lines on my forehead alot. Could it be I need to change primer, moisturize MORE, or try different foundation, or accept I'm getting old (lol)? Any advice is appreciated!!
I have grey hairs on my eyebrows. Have tried a lot of products, and none of them cover the grey. Do you have a product that can be applied before, I apply my Anastasia brow powder duo, which I bought from Sephora. I love the product, easy to apply, however on the grey hairs nothing will stick.
Hiya Ive been looking for a contour kit and am stuck between Kat Von D Shade+Light or ABH countour kit. Im NC30-35 in MAC and I use Urban Decay Naked Skin in 4.5 as my foundation. I also use Gingerly in Nars' line of radiant creamy concealers. I have an olive/medium complexion with a yellowish undertone. It's easy for me to find a contour shade for my cheeks and temples but Im hoping to invest in the kit that is best for contouring my nose. Any advice? Thanks!
I have been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade for a while now...but in the hot spring/summer weather I feel like it is too thick. I am looking for a brow product that is lightweight and easy to apply but will fill in my brows and keep them in place. I am very fair and have blonde hair so I'm looking for something on the lighter side as well! Any suggestions?
I'm almost at the end of my Glamglow jar and I was wondering what kind of scooping tool (makeshift or store bought I don't mind) you use to scoop up the bits stuck along the sides, bottom, and edges. It's 76$ a jar and I want to get the most out of it. I've used my fingers but there's some places I can't reach. I know Sephora used to sell one, not sure if they still do and if it actually works well for that.
I'm attending an event next weekend and I'm trying to figure out what foundation to wear. I find that Clinique Even Better lasts the best for me when I have to be outside in the heat, but I'm scared that it'll cause flashback in photos because it has the low SPF. Has anyone had experience with this foundation causing that? Also, does anyone have suggestions for a setting powder? My skin has began to get oily around my T-zone and I don't think my MSF Natural will hold up in the heat. Thanks!
Hi. I am traveling the middle east this summer (around 100 degrees and humidity) and i am in need for some products that will help me survive the trip. I am 16 years old with combination skin and light skin. I already bought oil sheets but i still need some recommendations for foundation/BB creams/etc. and any other products you may think would be helpful. THANK YOU!
What is better HUM Skinny Bird or Flatter me? If you are slim but not over weight and not skinny which is best. I like exercising and try to eat healthy. I want to stay in shape, plus its near summer and I want to keep up with my body. I am 15. Thank you!
I have a lot of fine, long lashes, but I have a hard time finding a mascara that doesn't make them clump together. Also, with some brands by the end of the day I have black smudges all under my eyes. I think I have oily lashes that just don't hold mascara well. I just ran out of mascara and I miss having dramatic eyelashes! Do you know a mascara I should try that won't clump or bleed?
What is a good nail colour for older hands? I am in my 60s. I know that skin colour is important (I am fair in colour). Also - I need to have the colour look 'professional'. Dark colours make my hands look older and light colours make me look like I am trying to be a "young wanna be". I have looked at the hands of other older women and haven't seen a colour that I really like yet. Thank-you
