Hey! I have quite dry skin with a lot of redness. I use a moisturizer everyday (and sometimes a primer) before applying Smashbox camera ready BB water, which I like but I wish it had more coverage for my redness. I also find that it isn't as matte as I would like it to be. I usually apply mineral veil over that as well to make it more matte but I still have some shine from the liqiud foundation. Are there any good foundations out there that won't make me flakey and dry but still finish matte and are medium-full coverage? Thanks!
Lately I have noticed a lot of redness in my skin. It could be a lot of things including but not limited to aging. I use gentle face cleansers (Pater Thomas Roth, Purity made Simple, Ole Henriksen, or Bliss on occasion). Recently I have also been 'toning' with Micelor water by Biodema after cleansing to ensure all makeup is removed. Then I use Ole' face products morning & night. My newest foundation, Estée Lauder Double Wear is lovely and the colour matches perfectly, but I am finding, half way through the day my chin, nose and forehead have redness poking through the foundation. Could it be oxidizing pinker than my skin tone? Suggestions? Oh and I prime my skin with Benefit Porefection or Hourglass. Thanks in advance J.
Hello, I am looking for a perfect foundation which will give me full coverage, long lasting, light weight, matte look. I have dry skin and currently i am using mac studio fix and my shade is nc 35. It will be helpful if anyone mention the shade also. Thanks.

I don't want to look like a clown, but I don't want this lipstick to overpower the rest of my face. BTW, have received rave compliments about this lip shade on me.....just in case you think i've just decided to go this red. Also looking for lip liner as the lipstick bleeds a trifle into my lip lines. Thank you!
I need help picking a foundation color. I got matched with Remarcable by Marc Jacobs in both shade 10 and 12, which are described as very fair with pink undertones and very fair with yellow undertones respectively. After wearing both coloring on alternating days for a week, I think I'm in between undertones ie neutral. I didn't realize until I went to check online that their is a third color that comes right after 12 described as very fair with peach undertones. Is peach similar to neutral? Should I go back to be color matched again?
I started a new skincare regime and had a terrible reaction all over my my cheeks and forehead because I didn't ease into it like I should have - skin is red, itchy, and feels inflamed. I have a few questions if anyone can help. 1. In the future I want to patch test everything I use beforehand, but I'm not sure what area to patch test on? I saw online you should test for irritants in the area most susceptible, but I don't want to patch test on my face! My nose and the side of my face is fine and did not react (even though they were exposed to the same products) - so I am worried that if I test behind my ear/inside my elbow I would still react on my face. 2. What I did that night was - Ole Henriksen on the go cleanser (used a lot a few years ago, had no reaction). Then I followed with PTR Cucumber Mask (only new product that night). Followed by Ole's Vitamin C serum + oil (had used for a week with no reactions). I think the redness started after I applied the serum/oil parts. What product could have caused the reaction? The cucumber mask is supposed to be really gentle and I have used his Pumpkin Enzyme Mask with no adverse effects before. Could it have been me combining products rather than a single product that caused it?
Hello everyone! Would anyone be interested to do some fun meetups for shopping and lunch? I would love to plan a few in my city and hope others would do the same. I have done this on other forums and it has been great to meet amazing women, a few have become great friends. I am in Philly and NYC and would love to do both! Please respond and we can find a day that works for everyone. Philly meet up would be in King of Prussia Mall. Best shopping! NYC , we can start at Bergdorf's and walk the area.
Hi, I am going on vacation with my boyfriend at the end of the month, I am desperately trying to find a product that helps to combat back-thigh cellulite. Does anyone know of a product that would help with this? Thanks!
I have dry skin mostly and very sensitive skin. I've used Orgins Modern Friction exfoliator twice a week for two weeks. the result was more breakouts. i had more pimples than I started with. is that normal or should a switch to another product?
I have several questions. I have had extremely oily skin and when it was fixed it then started to be extremely dry. I spent forever trying to find a foundation and primer that would work, nothing did. Randomly my skin started to be normal, not too dry or oily but makeup still doesn't completely sit right. It doesn't last long on my face, give it a couple hours and it will look like I have barely to none on. It also oxidizes really bad, I am in the lightest shade but it turns dark. I have looked up ways to fix this but nothing helps. I exfoliate, I moisturize, I prime, and I have even used a setting spray. Ive tried expensive makeup brands and even cheap brands, I have tried full coverage to medium coverage. No matter what I do, nothing seems to stay on or stay close to my shade.
