Eyebrow tattoo experience ?
Can anyone tell me their eyebrow tattoo experience ? I'm getting mine done during the summer by slightly tattooing because I don't want to go through the hassle of using pencil or powder (can't anyways because of sensitive eyes and too much money). Can I still a tinted brow gel like benefit's gimme brow in medium deep to look as natural as possible ?

rapidly thinning hair
Hi! I am 19 and am in my first year in college. Yes college has been stressful for me bc I am a biochemistry major that has to maintain a 3.6 GPA but ive dealt with school stress all my life so I dont think that would really play this significant of a factor. My hair used to be very thick curly auburn hair and now its thinning at my scalp and falling out CONSTANTLY. It used to take me approximately 2 hours to straighten my hair and now it takes me around 20 min. I try my best to avoid straightening and curling my hair and only do so maybe once a month or once every two months. I have always had healthy hair and IDK what to do. Clumps and clumps are falling out and my scalp is becoming so thin (that you can see through my hair to my scalp) its terrifying because I just turned 19. I use argan and Moroccan oil and use a moroccan oil based shampoo. I take a multi vitamin and just recently started taking biotin (trader joes brand). Please any help/tips/advice would be really appreciated! Thank you!

Hormones (birth control) can cause some of these changes. Definitely go in - that is not normal and I can see why it is distressing! Keep us updated.  see post
Dior Airflash Foundation
I have a few questions: 1. What is the Dior Airflash Foundation based on? Is it water-based, sulfur-based?  2. Do both the Foundation and it's primer have to have the same kind of base? (Ex: both are water-based for it too work well)  3. Is a lotion equivalent to a primer? Or will the lotion just not work at all..

Hairstyle recommendations, please!
I'm getting my hair done next week, and I have no idea what I should get done. I have long hair (mid-back), dark blonde/light brown, straight, flat, and coarse. My hair is not thick, but it's not super thin. I also have some sort-of side bangs from when I got my hair cut a couple months ago (they're long enough to tuck behind my ear). My face is round/oval (I've heard different opinions from people). I look AWFUL with a center part, and I don't want anything that makes my face look rounder (I think my head looks like a bowling ball lol). I like what I call "bombshell hair"--Victoria's Secret models, Sofia Vergara. Anyone have any suggestions for what to do with my hair? Thanks in advance!

Foundation for Vacation?
I will be going to Thailand soon, and the weather there is HOT. Better yet, I'm going during the humid rainy season! I would rather not have something that has a full, heavy coverage in that heat! My acne has gotten better so I'm not as concerned with getting full coverage as I used to be, but I'm still not sure which bb/cc cream or even tinted moisturizer is good enough to last in the heat!   I've tried benefit's bb cream but the somewhat powdery finish made my dry spots look splotched an uneven, as any powder foundation does.    I have fair, sensitive skin that is dry combination.  Thanks for any suggestions!

Brow powder or pencil for Asian eyebrows ?
I have heard the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow powder duo is great for soft natural brows. However, does this product really smudge off on oily skin? I have sensitive itchy eyes and can this get in your eyes like eyeshadow. I've tried using an unknown pencil from my mom's collection and it was hard to wash it off with soap. No wonder a lot of women complain that their brows fall off with the ABH Brow Wiz. I am going to also use the Benefit gimme with of the two products above. Just can't decide ! I will include a photo below and tell me what product and shade will be best for me.  P.s. My brows are not shaped. I don't know how, what shape, and where to start with what tool.

Looking for the best tinted moisturizer for my complexion.
    I am a makeup junkie, but on my off days where I'm just running errands and not going anywhere special, I would like to use a tinted moisturizer to match my skin tone and still cover up some dullness in my skin.        I currently use Laura Mercier (it's a deluxe sample from one of my rewards), it looks ok but I think it's to light for my color, and after a while it makes my skin very oily (I naturally have oily skin).  What would be best for my skin tone and provide the best coverage?       Also, what are smoke tips when using tinted moisturizer?  (i.e. application measures, making it last long periods of time)
