Alright so I don't know what the trick is to find a proper concealer or for that matter any foundation for my skin tone. I had a beauty consultant who helped find me a tarte concealer but I find its really heavy and it looks a little darker than my tinted moisturizer itself. Really confused on how to nail getting correct products for my skin tone. The two products im using are: smashbox camera ready BB cream (light/medium) tarte maracuja concealer (tan) Do have heard that your concealer can be a shade lighter or two?
Hellol I am currently using the NARS sheer glow foundation in the color Mont Blanc. I am looking to purchase the NARS pure radiant tinted moisturizer. I don't know what color I should buy. Can you please help me? Thank you <3
Hello beautiful ladies! I'm a rookie trying to learn how to not look like a clown, so I need advice from you pros. For some reason every foundation I try looks heavy, unnatural on me, and every powder looks cakey. But, recently I tried a sample of Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets All in One BB cream in medium and it looked gorgeous. I have never tried a BB cream before and this one just looked perfect in my skin. However, after a couple of hours my face started to look oily. So, I figured that perhaps with a good translucent matte powder I can get the finish I'm lookimg for. But with so much variety, how to choose the right one without overspending in trials? Therefore, I would highly appreciate your advice on what translucent matte, non cakey powder may work for me over this bbb cream. Some info about my skin type: I have oily acne prone skin with some scarring in the cheeks, so go non comedogenic and good coverage are a plus. The color of my skin is very fair. Thank you so much in advance!
I just purchased Nars blush in deep throat and seduction, I need some ideas for lip colors that would go with them, I am not affraid of color but I don't want to choose the wrong color. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
I dont have fine lines under my eyes...they are definitly noticeable and look even worse when I wear concealer for my dark circles. So now I'm deciding to treat the lines under my eyes. What eye cream have you ladies used that was effective to reduce or completly diminish wrinkles under the eyes? I'm in my 20s btw.
Hi all, I've recently come to terms with the fact that the Lip Tar formula is just not going to work for me - too drying on me. However one of my favorite lip colors, OCC Pretty Boy, I have only seen in the Lip Tar formula. Would any of you happen to know of any similar lipstick shades, preferably opaque and non-matte? I looked up dupes on Temptalia's site but the two she lists aren't quite what I'm looking for, they're either too light (illamasqua welt) or a little too red (nars carthage). here are some images for reference: alexbeautycorner on blogspot - temptalia - xsparkage -
Hello, Since I am sensitive to silicones, I am excited to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics tinted moisturizer and concealer. I have been looking at images online, and am guessing that I am somewhere around Y2 for the tinted moisturizer and R1 for concealer. Foundations that match my skin are: Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX Foundation SPF 15 in L4 Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15 in Natural 4 Everyday Minerals matte base in Medium Beige (a medium peach color) matches well and is brightening on me. Right now I don't have a concealer due to the silicone problem. I think I'd be considered a medium-light toned caucasian. I look yellow when my skin is next to my husband's, and he looks pink and a bit lighter. I think I look best in foundation and concealers that are peach, rather than yellow. Can anyone please advise me on which colors to try (in either or both the tinted moisturizer and concealer)? Thank you! Karen
My husband is using Clinique's skin care regime for men for more than a year , though he loves all other products but eye cream doesn't seems to serve the purpose. He has serious dark circles around his eyes..... Any suggestions which eye cream will be effective for him?
Help! I've been using Benefit's You Rebel Tinted Moisturizer religiously, but saw they've discontinued it! Does anyone have a recommendation for an oil-free tinted moisturizer with the same dewy finish and some SPF? I have combination olive skin and dont want anything too heavy. Thanks for the help!!
What is everyone's favorite sephora products mine are .... the urban decay basics palette, the smashbox the master class palette 2 , lancome waterproof under eye concealer , and living proof nourishing cream. these are just a few of my favorites what does everyone else like ???? please let me know !
I've noticed the peel pads that are individually wrapped are larger, big enough for me to cover my neck, chest and hands, but I've seen them come in the little bulk packaging as well, and they look smaller and circular Instead of the individually wrapped larger, square shaped pads. Does anyone know whether the 15 pad pack, the 30 pad pack, 60 pad pack, ect. Has the individually wrapped pads or the bulk packs with smaller circular pads? And also, if there's a price difference between them? The descriptions seem ambiguous and I want to make sure I get the most out of my money! I already know they work really well for my skin it's just a matter of what's most cost effective! Any help would be much appreciated! Also, if anyone had tried a similar product that worked better for them, please share! Thanks!!
Hi all- I know missie has made two threads for 100 point ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -100-Point-Perks/td-p/869671) and 500 point ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -250-500-and-Male-Point-Perks/td-p/869679) perks. I was wondering if anyone knows how they find other ones? I just saw someone had a tarte 500 point perk from another thread (which i just happily ordered) but I wonder how to find these?!
best foundation Please for large pores and aging wrinkly skin that will not cake in pores and fine lines - Over 50 ?? Aging skin with fine lines, some deep lines and large pores on chin & nose. Every foundation I've tried including HD Makeup forever and Dr.Perricone, from cream to liquid piles up in pores and lines. I have a fantastic skin care regimen with Dr. Perricone, but Perricone foundation and coverup are not good. Running out of options.
I am 39 and noticing small, fine lines under my eyes. (Thankfully, the crows feet have not popped up yet, but I'm sure they're on the way!) I use MUFE powder foundation, which I absolutely LOVE, but I can't use it under my eyes because it settles into all the fine lines and REALLY ages me. (Not a good look!) I confess that I'm pretty dumb when it comes to makeup, even though I love everything about it. I need some help, please! What can I use to cover up the dark circles and even out my skin tone under my eyes, that won't cake or settle into my wrinkles? I've tried concealer, (I have Laura Mercier), and while it covers up the dark circles, it also settles into the fine lines, much like the powder does. I was thinking of trying a BB cream?? What do you guys think??
I have oily skin, more oil in T zone, but also oily in top cheek area (the part of the cheeks that's closest to nose/eye.) BUT, the part of the cheeks that's further down (below cheekbone until past jawline) is very dry! I have a hard time finding a good moisturizer for this type of skin. I need oil control in the middle but moisture in the bottom. I use acne medication in the jawline area and chin area that makes it even more dry. I wonder if the IBUKI moisturizer would be hydrating enough for this or do you have another suggestion? thank you!!!!!
I currently wear Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation SPF 20 PA+++ in 4 Perfect Vanilla, but would like purchase Givenchy Teint Couture Long-Wearing Fluid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. What shade is the correct color to choose?
I am trying to decide between NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and Lancôme Effacenes under eye concealer. I hear good things about both. I have pretty dark circles under my eyes and am light to medium olive skin tones. Any suggestions? I've asked about concealers in the past but, have narrowed it down to these two! I have used the Lancôme before in beige. It wasn't great, I am thinking of buying it in Claire II this time hoping it works better! I am not familiar with the NARS at all and could use some input on product and color. Thank you so much!!
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.
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.
