I have fair skin. What color foundation should I use in the georgio armani luminous silk foundation? I was thinking a 3 since I'm fair but not as fair as a redhead. Also does that line have a face powder? I didn't see one.

Eradikate Acne Treatment - How To's
I just purchased the Eradikate by Kate Somerville acne treatment and I'm a little bit confused about how to use it. I understand that you don't shake it and dab it on your face with a Q-tip, however;   a) is it used like a spot treating mask where you wash it off after 10-15 mins? b) if not, do you put it on before or after moisturizer and how long do you let it sit for? c) if I were to leave it over night (and say it I apply it before moisturizer) would the rest of my face not get really dry from not having put moisturizer on prior?   Thank you!

Natural Lipstick
Hi all!  I am using color shade 4Y05 for foundation and dye my hair blonde.  I am looking for natural looking lipstick but that doesn't have so much gloss so that when wind blows my hair doesn't get stuck to my lips.  I was looking for something light pinkish or even nude, but that looks natural and pretty.  Any and all suggestions would be great!  Thanks.

Very full coverage liquid foundation for combo light skin with pink undertones?
Hi! I'm looking for a *very* full coverage liquid foundation for my light skin with pink undertones. I have mostly oily skin but with dry patches from acne medication, even with moisturizer. My acne is unfortunately quite bad right now, so a lot of coverage is a must! My skin is a pretty standard "light" -- not pale or porcelain, not light-medium. The pink undertones are pretty strong so a lot of foundation looks yellow on me, even neutral tones.   Estee Lauder Double Wear was pretty good, but I couldn't find a shade match, and boy did I try! Kat von D was too drying and pasty. I use Tarte Amazonian Clay right now, but I'm looking for more coverage. MUFE didn't work out, but I can't remember why...    I'm going to Sephora to look at Dermablend Cover Creme and CoverFX, but I was wondering if anyone had any more ideas, especially for pink-based foundations. Much thanks!

Allergic Reaction
I started using 3 new products for about the past couple days. But last night I went to bed with my eyes red and I thought that was weird. This morning, I woke up with my eyes swollen. I've been using fresh soy cleanser and floral toner then moisturized with clinque dramatically different lotion for the past couple days morning and night. My eyes doesn't hurt or itchy.But I still don't know the cause of my problem. What do I do?   ps. I'm visiting my dad in Seattle right now, so I can't go to the doctors

My eyebrows are falling out when I use pomade on them.
I started using the Anastasia Dip Brow pomade about 3 months ago. It makes my eyebrows look amazing!! Unfortunately I have been loosing a lot of eyebrow hair! My eyebrows were once very thick and now are very sparse and have some empty spots. Every time I wipe off my eyebrow makeup I can see the hairs coming off. I have stopped using it because I might be allergic to something in it. I also tried a powder after, but it was a cheap brand and I had 1-2 hairs falling out but nothing compared to the pomade.   Is there any eyebrow product that you recommend, maybe that has few ingredients? Maybe something for sensitive skin? (not that I have sensitive skin but I'm worried about my brows) I especially need to start coloring in my eyebrows now that they are sparse. Help!!!
