need help finding a powder/bb cream/foundation for school! I'm fair with combo-oily skin (oily in t-zone, normal/dry with KP on cheeks). I want something that feels lightweight but lasts all day with my crazy skin. I also want something that will be natural looking---I stick to light neutral looks for everyday occasions, and my school allows only modest makeup (no neon yellow eyeshadow or black lipstick). As far as acne, I have very minor blemishes/blackheads, but redness is somewhat of a concern for me, mostly on my cheeks. I'd appreciate recommendations on face products (foundations, primers, concealers, powders, etc.) from Sephora, the drugstore, MAC, or even other stores! I just want something comfortable and nice-looking Smiley Happy

Hi all:   Getting married in October and need suggestions for a primer/foundation/setting powder that will not make my huge pores worse.  I don't even wear foundation or powder at all on a good day as the colour just goes into the pores and makes me look like I have little coloured dots all over my face.  The rest of the make up is planned, have the whole look, just need to get the basics down on the face to make it perfect.  Would appreciate some product suggestions!    Thx in advance

Just noticed that all of the spring stuff is showing up (early as always) but the thread is still specific to Winter (which it is...but tell the brands).  So what have you found, dear BTers, that is new on Sephora...

I am currently trying to figure out what cleanser to get to use with my clairsonic at night!    My skin is very normal, can be oily in my t-zone with zero to no breakouts!    my current night time routine is; No. 7 cleansing oil, Purity face wash with my clairsonic, Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid exfoliant, and then Derma E DMA firming moisturizer!    I am just no longer satisfied with Purity, and want to switch to something i can use with my clairsonic at night, and by itself in the morning!

I have a question about picking a concealer shade. I currently use the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation. I am in the shade Medium 57. I would like to know what shade I am in her Lock-It Concealer Crème, and also her Lock-It Concealer. Ive never used her concealer before just her foundation. I tried to use the Color IQ online but to make sure I'd like some help to pick my right shade for both her concealers.

Hi, I am a teenager and I have oily skin and really long eyelashes. Can someone please help me find a foundation/bb cream, powder, blush, bronzer, and mascara? Thanks so much, I really appreciate it.

I have some keratosis pilaris on my cheeks. The texture issues have improved since I got on the pill (what a great random side effect!), but I still have redness. Normally I'd just find a green color corrector, but I'm wondering if specific formulas will be better suited to the kp (still some bumps). Are there any correcting concealers, primers, foundations, etc. that work best for this?

Hi All! I'm having issues with my foundation separating...I believe. I have never had this happen before so I'm not sure I'm using the right term.  What happens is within a few hours of applying foundation around my nose, chin and sometimes my lower cheeks, the foundation settles or separates to the point where you can see little lines in the foundation.  Blotting or applying more powder only makes it worse. I have tried different primers/foundation combos but haven't found one that works.  I used to use Smashbox BB/CC cream, which worked a little better but i have horrible acne scars and need more coverage. Since trying true foundation it's been a mess. I have acne prone combo skin with some dry patches but also get pretty oily throughout the day.  As I get older I notice my skin seems a little drier but still def gets oily too.     I currently use: Cleanser Neutrogena Oil-free acne wash Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer-(Have tried multiple different moisterizers-in search of new one for my combo skin, that won't clog my pores, but still gives good amount of moisture--all cause same effect on foundation). Make Up Forever Smoothing Primer Shiseido Synchro, or Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24 currently. Previously have tried Estee Lauder double wear,(Looking for something that does not feel "mask like", but still covers somewhat well).  Laura Mercier Translucent Finishing Powder (have tried patting on with puff, or dusting on with brush)   I have tried applying the foundation with a damp beauty blender, different foundation brushes or with fingers. All has same results of clinging to my dry patches (despite exfoliating) and ends up separating, and essentially looks horrible a few hours after applying.    PLEASE ANY help/suggestions you can send my way will be greatly appreciated!!! I'm to the point where I don't even want to leave my house because the thought of putting on foundation and it looking bad makes me want to give up trying.   Thanks in advance!!!

I am considering getting this set. But I have never used a foundation, believe it or not. I usually just use a Bare Minerals all-over face color A Little Sun (but just as a highlight, not all over).                                                     I am 62 and want to cover up some of my lines on occasion, but not every day. I have absolutely no idea what shade to buy and the stores in my immediate area do not carry this item. Any tips for choosing a shade online?

What would my shade be in the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Stick/Liquid foundation be if in the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation I'm in the shade Warm Beige?

I was color matched in the winter with Tawny (3W1) for the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation, but now for the summer I am a little darker. Should I buy the next shade 3W2 or go to 4W1? I'm trying to avoid another trip to the store to be color matched again so I can just order online.

Hello beauties,   I've already converted to sulfate-free shampoos, but I would appreciate any feedback/input on sulfates contained in facial cleansers.  Many years ago, my dermatologist highly recommended Cetaphil face wash (the formula for normal to oily skin), and I've been using it ever since.  It's actually been very good for my skin and works well, but I'm concerned about the sulfates that are contained in the ingredients.  My husband and I are planning on conceiving a baby soon (God-willing), and I'm concerned about the sulfates interfering with my hormones.  On the other hand, I don't believe cleansers have the opportunity to penetrate the skin, so should I just stick with Cetaphil?  It remains the #1 dermatologist recommended (drugstore) brand (still trying to figure out why).  Thank you!

My friends always recommend it to me but I don't know if to buy it, is it worth it? Is it good for combination skin? Does it last longer? Thanks, Alésia.

Hey guys, so I have adult acne and my skin gets very oily throughout the day. Does anyone have any recommendations for makeup primer to keep everything smooth, and/or also a setting powder or spray to make it stay?  Also, my skin is very sensitive so if I'm not careful I can dry it out to the point of flaking and rough patches. Please help, I'm desperate

Hello I am a guy and I used to have acne mainly on my forehead.  I have some indented scars and very large/pitted pores as well.  I have had laser treatments done but honestly havent seen any improvement.  I am to the point where I just want some sort of cover up or concealer but I am a guy so it seems weird to me to have to ask it.  Are there any options for me?  I have I guess what you would consider to be combination skin, oily at times, but also dry in spots.  I have tried some BB creams and concealers but nothing seems to really help, both with concealing the pores and filling in my scars.  Advice?

I just started using this product and I'm not sure if I should tone my face after using it or not? My toner is pretty simplistic (Thayer's witch hazel with rose), but I want to reap the benefits of the Amore Pacific. Any help is appreciated

I simply cannot seem to find the answer to my question on the internet! Are you able to bake your face using HD powder or do you need to use a translucent setting powder? I know that HD powder is considered a "finishing" powder, but is translucent powder a finishing power or a setting powder? Thank you for reading!

Good evening everyone! Okay so, I am hunting for a new Serum to use with my skin care routine. I have been using Lancome  Génifique serum. I like it but I do not love it. I feel like my skin still looks dull and just there. I am looking for something that is going to help with the dull, fine lines and wrinkles, also that is affordable. Obviously something that is anti-aging also. My skin is sensitive and also combination. I did the skin Q test and reccomneded drunk elephant  Glycolic T.L.C. Framboos, But I dont know if that is a good choice? seems expensive for something that im not sure on? hopefully you guys have some good advice , on what products would be good choices.!
