What shade am I for Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (squeeze tube one, not glass bottle)? I have 1.0 right now and it it too light and too pink/cool toned. (P.S. I'm asking again since my question was missed...)
I have recently been using the Tarte Amazonian Clay liquid Foundation, and bareMinerals Blemish Remedy, and both are making me break out... I have used the Clinique Stay-Matte but it also made me break out. I am looking for a good Liquid foundation and/or a powder, preferably pressed powder for on the run touch ups, that won't encourage breakouts. Any suggestions?
I'm looking for a "spot" concealer for those wicked little pimples that occasionally pop up. I've searched and see tons of products for under eye...but this would be for the face. I'm open to any and all suggestions.(money is not an object)..also what brush and technique should I use so it's not obvious? I wear Nars Sheer glow foundation...the color is lost on me right now, but in the past have worn Dior Airflash spray foundation in 200, as well as Chanel's Vitalumiere satin smoothing fluid make up in natural beige...I also wear Bobbi Brown's BB cream in Medium..and it's a great match. Tx so much!
Guerlain is my benchmark on BB creams and I've tried a lot. The big problem with it was that it only had 2 colors, One was too light and one was too dark for me. Now however they have introduced an in between color and I'm thinking of ordering it. Before I do though, are there any others in the same league as Guerlain that I should consider? BTW I've tried Too Faced, Stila, Clinique, Estee Lauder (was the closest in overall quality and a few of Dr. Jart (to ashen for my skin tone). Thanks for your input.
I am in desperate need of a new skincare plan. I have a few ideas so far: Investing in the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush! Clé de Peau Beauté masks! But...I need a great moisturizer to use daily. I am torn between the Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream Moisturizer, and the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry to Dry Combination Skin. I am very pale, with super-parched, tight skin. I have very, very sensitive skin and allergies to most plants, flowers, botanicals, and artificial chemicals. I do not break out easily, but suffer from skin redness when it gets irritated or dry, due to air pollution, impurities, etc. Both have received wonderful reviews, so I am hoping someone can provide me with a bit of a breakdown as to any reactions/differences one would notice between the two products. Thanks for your help!
I recently bought NARS blush in Orgasm due to so many raves but I didn't care for it. It had too much shimmer for me. There are several other ones i'd like to try, but I don't want to commit to buy and I also don't want to buy, buy, buy and have to return. Can Sephora make you a blush sample?
What foundation/BB/CC cream would everyone recommend for that simple porcelain finish? I have a make up bag full of products... none that do the trick. I have normal/ even skin tone. Just wanted a simple look
Hi -- I'm preparing to do an amateur bodybuilding competition in a month, and I've been tanning for awhile using a "professional grade" bronzing lotion. Approximately two months ago I injured myself on the left side of my chest. The wound has healed but unfortunately there is now a blotchy 2" x 1" area which is noticeably darker than the surrounding tanned skin. Even though I have put an opaque bandage over the area when I tan, the discoloration is not fading all that much. A day before the bodybuilding show, I get spray tanned on top of my "base" tan. This is necessary because even though I have a fairly dark tan right now, the theatrical lighting on-stage is so bright that my "natural" tan will look washed-out and without the spray tan I'll wind up appearing grey. So, I think I'm going to need some sort of makeup to cover the blemish, but not only does it have to blend with my tanned skin, it has to be compatible with the spray tan. I'm guessing that I'd apply the blemish concealer before spray tanning, but being that I know virtually nothing about cosmetics, I'm not sure about this. Anyway, I have no idea what would be a good choice of product to use, so I figured that I'd "Ask The Experts." - Dan
I use bareMInerals original foundation in medium tan, I was initially matched to the wrong shade a fact that I didn't pick up on until I walked out of my house looking like that and people asked me what happened to my face. So I made sure this time it was right so I asked around a couple of sephoras and asked several different cast members to make sure I got matched to the right one, I was matched to medium tan thrice and its a perfect match even in bright sunlight. But medium tan is 1y09, while my match was 3y11. I wanted lighter coverage so I wanted something else the cast member when she realized that I use bareminerals, recommended their broad spectrum foundations as a more sheer alternative and matched me to golden tan which is also 1y09. At an Estee Lauder warehouse sale they matched me to Clinique perfectly real foundation in shade 34, which is also 1y09. So I am obviously 1y09, so why did I get match to 3y11? Plus 2 out of the 3 3y11 foundations I tried on were too light for me. What is up with that?
Hello, I got my Color IQ yesterday, and I'm pretty happy with the BB cream it matched me with. While I think it's a great tool, I'd still like to know what this code translates to. Is there a chart somewhere to help me decode it? I'm a 2Y06. Thank you, Biakko
My color id is #2Y01. I want to purchase a foundation for dry skin that doesn't seep into my wrinkles, or appear cakey. I suffer with eczema and have small lines on my cheeks/slight reddness. I also, enjoy seeing me freckles and don't enjoy a heavy looking foundation on my skin. Can anyone help? I am medium fair
I realized the MUFE pencil shadows I'm looking to replace have been discontinued, can anyone suggest replacements? Pencil format would be preferable, but a cream shadow that's waterproof will do as well. I'm looking to replace 8E and 22E from the attached pic
I can't tell what shade to order in Kat Von Dee Lock It Foundation. I usually wear Makeup Forever HD foundation in 125. I'm a medium on the lighter end of the spectrum with beigey, not yellow undertones. I'm also colour iq number # 1Y06 if that helps. Please help me I really want to order this foundation soon, Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used Sephora's color match program and found my shade to be 2.0 but it turned out to be too light for me. It's weird since the same color match 3Y03 - NARS Sheer Glow in Ceylan -matches my skin color. Today I went in stores to try the Urban foundation in 3.0 and 4.0 and was told that 4.0 matched me better. When I left the store though, they both seemed to match my skin. So which shade am I supposed to get, 3.0 or 4.0? For reference, I'm NC20-25 and wear: NARS Sheer Glow in Ceylan - 3Y03 NARS tinted moisturizer in Alaska - 3Y06 Bobbi Brown tinted moisturizer in extra light - 1Y05 Estee Lauder BB cream in Light - 3Y06 P.S. May you also let me know what shade I'm in for Estee Lauder Double Wear Light ? I got it in 1.0 per Sephora's color match (3Y06) and again its too light and pink for my skin.
I am 34 years old and want to invest in an awesome serum that will help with anti-aging, wrinkle combatting and healthier skin. Over the Iast few years I have developed lines on my forehead, around my eyes and mouth. After lots of searching, I think I have narrowed it down to two choices - Estee Lauder Perfectionist CP+R Wrinkle Lifting/Firming Serum and Shiseido Bio Performance Super Corrective Serum. Can you help me make a final decision or recommend something better than these two options. Thanks!
When I was a teenager, I had terrible acne. Went on drugs for it, and my skin cleared up. Since then, I used to get the occasional hormonal breakout. A pimple here or there, nothing too bad. For some reason, things have changed! Now I get these painful, swollen cysts that never come to the surface on my nose and beside my nose, even my chin! I've always had combo skin, but now it's even more oily AND dry. Ugh. I'd been using SpectroGel and Complex 15 moisturizer forever, but now I think my skin needs have changed and I want to get new products. I am also in a position where I don't need the cheapest stuff. Suggestions? I have combo/sensitive/apparently acne-prone (sort of?) skin. I need a new facial cleanser and moisturizer. Thanks guys!
I have used Clinique foundation. after than started the bare mineral starter kit. Was happy about that though i was having pimple problem. After that did a test on sephora for skin. They suggested me the Bare Minerals Bare Skin Foundation. I am using it now and happy too. But for regular use, i am not comfortable. I have a combination to dry skin. And my skin has oxidization problem after using foundation. Besides that, i am using prestige primer or some times bare minerals original primer. Also using Too faced translucent powder. Please suggest me the best foundation that i can use for regular flawless make up as i go to University. If any other suggestion u want to give , plz do so.
I am abroad in Australia for about 5 months, and am almost out of my makeup forever HD foundation! I have gotten rather tan while here (and probably will get even more so as the weather warms up), and the foundation that I have left is starting to get too light for my skin. There aren't any stores that sell this brand anywhere near me, so do you have any advice on picking out a colour online? Thanks!
I have a friend who wears MUFE HD foundation and it looks fabulous on her. I am thinking of trying it, but have seen mixed reviews in regards to how it works with combination/oily skin. Can any of the experts comment on that? Also, I live about 2 hours away from the nearest Sephora store. Any suggestions for picking the right shade?
