I've recently changed up my skincare routine and found a foundation that matches perfectly (Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation in light sand) I've been using the hourglass mineral veil primer but I feel like it is making me look a little more glowy than I would like. And the Tarte foundation is supposed to be matte and it is supposed to last but I almost feel the primer doesn't' make it last as long as it claims to. I have combination skin so its hard to find a primer that won't make my foundation slide off my face but won't cling to dry patches. please help!
I ordered the color #35 last week. Before I ordered the full size, I tested a sample (some months ago) and the color kinda matched. I also tested #30 but found it a bit pink on me. Sometimes beige looks fine on me but sometimes don't. I am light-medium and possibly have yellow undertone. Would #40 work for me? But isn't #40 be darker than #35? 35 is 2 shades darker than I am and looks orangey. I think my skin got lighter. Anything above 30 is too light for me though. Also, will I be able to exchange the foundation for another color if I used a bit of it? (I used it once because I thought the color was fine at first.) My skin looks pinkish here. But I have some yellow in my skin. That stripe is the #35 color.

Did i make a mistake? The purpose is to remove dark circles and uplift under eye skin. i was supposed to buy Orchidee imperiale and bought Abielle royale instead. What is the major difference between the two. should i exchange the product? Appreciate the input
How safe is it to use salicylic acid under eyes? I was looking at the new blemish fighting makeup from Bare Minerals and am considering buying it. However, it contains salicylic acid and I don't want to do damage to under my eyes by using it. thanks
My eyes are dark hazel and green in the sunlight. What kind of products can I use on my eyes to make them look more green or light hazel? I also go to school so I can't go crazy with makeup and wear neon green eyeshadows so please keep it natural and stuff.
My face looks like a full moon, it's very round which is strange because I'm very skinny. Is there a way I can contour around my cheekbones or something to make it look more bone-y and have a stronger jaw line?
I'm looking for a neutral palette that would allow me to play with more bolder or simple lip colours. Like maybe I would like to wear red lips one day and wine lips the day after. A nice natural palette that allows me to make looks that won't clash with lip colours. I recently purchased Naked3 by Urban Decay but I have no idea how neutral that might be with different lip colours, I'm still new to this. What would you guys recommend?
I am using the Estee Lauder Doublewear Fresco 2c3 and I would love trying a foundation in another brand, I love the long wear and the semi-matte finish. I wouldn't mind the new foundation being a little more lightweight as long as it's still long wear and build-able .Please help
I'm on the air in a TV newscast several nights a week. In the studio, I use Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation. Color: 128 Almond. But I'm going to be spending a lot more time reporting from the field where I need something I can put on quickly. Can anyone recommend which HD Forever in a compact would be best and which color is most compatible with that I'm using now? Thanks.
I'm thinking of adding the FAB Facial Radiance Pads to my skincare routine as a toning/chemical exfoliating step, but I'm a little confused about how to use them. I've heard on different beauty/skincare blogs that you aren't supposed to mix AHAs and retinoids because the ingredients will deactivate each other. I currently use a retinol serum at night, so I'm wondering if the glycolic acid in the FAB Facial Radiance Pads will mess that up? Should I only use the FAB Pads in the morning? Will that type of usage be enough to see results from the product? Thanks for any advice!
i have school pictures coming up and I'm trying to figure out what foundation i should wear. i have extremely oily skin! and I'm debating between the "Nars Matte Foundation" and the "Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation". I love both foundations, but which ones will make my skin look the best?
I have three OCC lip tars; Queen, Grandma and Pageant. I don 't wear them much because they look very neon and bright, but love the colors and would like to wear them more. How can I tone down the brightness/neon-ness? I tried mixing them in store with light tone lip tars like Hush, but they were still bright. Please help!
Hello, I Have the Bobby Brown gel eyeliner in black colour. Whenever I am putting it on, I have noticed it becomes dry very quickly even I am applying it ( I do winged eyeliner look and that takes time) And sometimes I see black powder like fall out too while applying. My brush goes stiff. What to do??? please help. I try wetting the brush beforehand then wiping on towel paper before starting. I do it repeatedly while applying it on as otherwise its too dry. why doesnt it glide on
This picture is from the Charlotte Tilbury line - can you guys help me recreate this eye look with Sephora products? Thanks. I wonder if the red in the Marc Jacob Siren palette could be used? I have that.
My dad's bday is coming up and I'd like to get him some new skincare items. He's in his early 60's, Caucasian, enlarged pores, few eye wrinkles (crow's feet) and that's pretty much it. His skin is in good condition and I want him to keep it that way. For him I want a daytime moisturizer with broad spectrum spf, a cleanser he can use day and night and possibly a night moisturizer. In other words, keep it simple. Also, he does not seem to have sensitive skin and he uses an electric razor so he doesn't need shaving cream. Any suggestions? (And it doesn't have to be just what Sephora sells). Thanks in advance!!!
I didn't take a picture so I can't really show you what I'm talking about unfortunately. I went in for a lesson on how to apply false eyelashes and I felt it went fairly well except for the fact that there was a space between my false eyelashes and real eyelashes. I felt it was noticeable for anyone speaking face to face with me. Can you apply eyelashes so there isn't really a space? Like is it bad to have them sitting on top of your real lashes? I don't really know. My pair is from Make Up For Ever if that helps?
I am currently struggling with breakouts. I'm 23..never really had a problem with acne except the occasional spot, but now I break out pretty much everywhere. It is not severe acne; I would say moderate. I get a few spots on my cheeks, around my chin, nose, and forehead, and it's just getting annoying. I have tried various brands: Murad, Origins, drugstore brands, First Aid Beauty (which actually broke me out although I really wanted to love it), and my most recent is Kate Somerville's Detox Cleanser. I do like it since it seems to clear up my spots, but it's soooooo drying. My skin has never been so flaky, even when I follow up with a moisturizer always. I use the cleanser only once a day, moisturizer twice a day, Exfolikate about two times a week, and I just can't stand how flaky I get. If I had to describe my skin, I would say that it is acne prone, and more on the dry side rather than oily. I have just recently ordered a Caudalie kit for hydration. Would this be a good option for my skin even though it is not specifically targeted for acne?
I got an interview, guys! I'm, as they say, scaroused. I'm so scared to mess up! What do I wear?? Should I put on a bit more makeup to show them I'm a serious addict? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Hi I'm new here. I'm looking to start using a primer but I've never used that before. My skin is very oily and usually whithin 2-3 hours my foundation stops working. My face will start getting oily again. Or are there any other suggestions to help my makeup last longer and face less oily??
So I am currently using Epiduo (to get rid of acne as recommended by my doctor) and I want to wear light makeup just to make my face look a little better and not so red. When using Epiduo, you are only supposed to wear non-comedogenic makeup. So I was looking for a BB cream and powder that are non-comedogenic. I found the Aveeno clear complexion BB cream which is non-comedogenic (which I haven't bought yet), so I thought I would try that. But I have yet to find a non-comedogenic powder. Know any good ones? Also if anyone else is using Epiduo, let me know your experience with wearing makeup, I'm a kind of scared because I only wear mascara right now and my skin is so sensitive that it hurts a little to remove it.
