Which is better for clearing blackheads? Murad pore clearing duo or FAB facial cleanser with red clay. I have very oily skin, very acne-prone skin, and a lot of blackheads. I have tried a variety of products and can't find one that fits. Any other product suggestions would be helpful too!
I'm torn between these two primers because I cannot decide which one would be better for my redness. I have normal/oily skin with occasional dryness, and very light skin. Also, I only use powder foundation and concealer. Will using primer under my eyes affect or help with dark circles and/or fine lines? Thanks in advanced!
Hey everyone I'm looking for my HG concealer. I have under eye hollows and nothing manages to cover them up. I don't have any dark circles. Would really appreciate and products and tips that would help Thanks in advance!
I really like how lipstick was for the girl on the how to countour video for square shape face. I just want to know what was used on her and how to apply it? thank you btw it also reminds me of lipstick application in Movie GIA interview scene with Gia
Currently debating between Tarte Brazilliance vs. St. Tropez (Self-tanners). I have never self-tanned before, and I am extremely pale. My main concern is not looking orange and price. Main question: Can St. Tropez be applied to the face? If not, that will be the deal breaker for me as I cannot afford to go buy an additional face-tanner for $30. I know St. Tropez Dark would probably be the best color option because of the green color-guard base but the face application is still an issue. Thanks!
I'm in my early twenties and all the beauty blogs have me sold on the benefits of exfoliating at least a couple times a week. I'm trying to find one that's gentle enough for 20 something combination skin. Both the products I'm looking at right now are paraben-free, have good ratings....and they're expensive, so I can I get some advice on which to go for? If one of these could help with blackheads and making my skin brighter that would be great too
I am looking for a new skin care regimen. I have combination skin and my main problem is clogged pores and blackheads all over. I want something that will solves my skin issue but that will not dry me out since i am already dry on the sides of my face while the center is oily. I am looking to find a face wash or cleanser, a toner, and a moisturizer. Please help me with recommendations. I have tried everything under the sun, even a dermatologist for years did not help me.
Highlighters and contouring are the talk of the season. I wanted to start a thread where everyone can list their skintone and highlighters they own/like for different occasions. It could be a useful resource for anyone looking for highlighters. Are you guys in? I will start. Skintone: Medium/ Mac NC30ish Highlighter Liquid- Becca Opal (Love it, most used), Benefit high beam (too light, good for fairer skintone) Cream- Benefit Watts Up (Good match, don't use it often) Powder- Kevin aucoin celestial powder in candlelight (Love it, most used)
I recently purchased the Diorskin Nude Air foundation and though I love its light texture and matte finish, I'm weary of using makeup with fragrance and a large amount of alcohol (I've read that less than 5% is okay) because I have sensitive (combination) skin and via Paula's choice, I've become a bit of a purist, worrying that makeup with irritant ingredients could be damaging my skin even if I don't feel it. Could you recommend some fragrance-free alternatives that are similar to Diorskin Nude Air Foundation?
My skin type is combination. I'm using Camu Camu Power Cx30 Vitamin C Brightening Moistirizer Peter Thomas Roth for almost 1 week. I love this moisturizer. My skin feels smooth but no greasy after applying this cream. The problem is it makes my face sometimes redden and easily break out ( tiny white head acnes). Do I should stop to use it? Thanks!
Hi everyone! I want to get the Supergoop CC Cream but I'm not sure if I should get Fair to Light or Light to Medium. For a reference I'm Cool Beige in Bobbi Browns Long Wear Foundation. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks! Katie
I was just thinking....what is my favorite brand. And for me it changes...then I like one brand's makeup and another brand's skincare and so on. So what is/are your absolute top brand(s)? By category or overall. Mine change all of the time. Today: Makeup: Chanel (some of the best and some of the worst but I always come back to Chanel. Runner ups Nars (ditto) and Tom Ford (my new flirtation). Skin care: My korean brand obsession (I picked a country not a brand) and Algenist. Scent: Tokyo Milk. And you?
Hey Guys! I love getting this eyebrow pen, but the Medium color seems to out of stock for weeks now. I don't know if the company is changing the design or not. But if it discontinues I'm gonna scream, because this would be the SECOND eyebrow item that will be gone. And I'm not blessed with beautiful brows like some girls are. I've used powders, pomades and pencils. Does anyone know ANY information on the medium color??
I'm looking to transition my makeup and skin care collection to a more natural/organic collection so that I can be nicer to my skin. Anyone have any good recommendations for brands or products? I have several products in my collection already, but I am looking for the works, an entire new collection. I just want to feel better and safer about the products I'm putting on my face. I'm looking for awesome natural/organic brands. Doesn't necessarily have to be vegan, but I do care immensely about the ingredients. Side note** I'm very inclined to subscribe to some beauty boxes. I'm looking at Birchbox as well as Goodebox which seems to be more naturally friendly. Recommendations in this area? What subscriptions do you guys have?
I have alot of acne and spots. I currently own Anastasia contouring kit. How should I apply it on my oily and acne prone skin? because if I apply just the cream contour it doesnt cover my spots. Please help.
I have long, dark hair that is oily at the scalp and dry at the ends. I need a shampoo that will help control my dandruff and oily scalp, and add moisture or at least add shine to my ends. Would prefer a shampoo that is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Thank you my lovelies!!
I have short eyelashes. I have tried a lot of mascara to make them "grow" or to make them look "longer." Should I use false eyelashes or keep trying my luck with mascara? How do you apply false eyelashes?
Hey everyone! I've been looking for a foundation - I got matched instore to Nars luminous all day in Mont Blanc (2Y02), but I have fairly dry areas on my normal skin so I wanted a more dewy/satin or glowy foundation. I absolutely don't want matte! My question is, do you think the sheer glow in mont blanc is the same shade as luminous mont blanc? Plus, what is the best/most dewy/radiant/hydrating foundation out there? Thanks! <3 <3 <3
Hi, I have a Shiseido sample that's called "Benefique Emulsion" - there is Emulsion 1 and 2 (2 different sample packets), and I was just wondering what exactly is EMULSION?? Is it Lotion? Also, Shiseido carries "Softener"s.. Is this the same thing as Toner? Ty 4 your help!! :-) :-)
So I have been told by friends that after they wash their face and before they apply moisturizer, they apply a serum to make sure that their face is properly hydrated. I tend to be a bit on the oily side but sometimes can be a bit dry, especially in the winter. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or recommendations on whether I should try and integrate a serum into my daily routine and any brands of serums that are good? I tend to favour natural, paraben free products if possible. I use the clear complexion boscia cleanser and face cream. Thanks!

I'm looking for a product to treat chest and back breakouts. I've tried switching my soaps to Cetaphil gentle bar soap, all natural Tea tree oil bar soap & Neutrogena Body Clear body wash. I've had some luck with the Tea tree oil soap but nothing that has completely cleared the breakouts. My breakouts are mild and nothing too serious but its frustrating when you want to wear a certain shirt but can't. I've looked at Peter Thomas Roth buffing beads and Murad Acne body wash but can't decided between the two. How often do I use the product and if I dont use it every day, what product should I use on the other days. I also read about how body puffs harbor bacteria and should not be used.
I have combination skin threw a dry phase . So all my powders look gross and unnatural . I was thinking of switching to liquid or tinted moisturizer but don't know where to start what do you recommend for a natural illuminating glow for this face of a mess?
I recently purchase kat von d lock it foundation in M54. It seems to really oxidize on me. At first it seemed perfect and after a while it's orange. Should a go a lighter shade? I do not live close to a sephora so i just went with a shade I thought would work based on my current foundation.
