I am 43 years old and my skin has a dry appearance. Also, I have an oily t-zone. What products can I use to get rid of the dry look and replace it a soft polished, glowing skin? While not worsening my t-zone. Thank you!!!
I have a combination skin that is slightly acne prone. I have heard that it is best to avoid liquid foundation and stick to powder based foundation. But powder foundation ends up looking cakey and fake. Can I get some tips on how to chose and apply the most suitable foundation.
I just found out my Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Bamboo Beige has been discontinued. I loved the amount of coverage and how it didn't dry out my skin. My concerns: I have dry and sensitive skin. I like my foundation to last all day and to give a natural look. Im looking for suggestions for a new foundation. Thank you!
Hello, I wear Lancome's Renergie Lift foundation. The shade 360 Dore 20W is a great match for my skin - I really like this foundation. Can you recommend a shade in the Dual Finish foundation? By the way, I am 53 years old. I need a powder compact foundation that I can use for touch ups during the workday - do you recommend Dual Finish or is there another product that is more suitable for my age? Thank you!
Recently, I've become more interested in doing my eyebrows. What products would you recommend for filling in eyebrows? (I'm using the Anastasia Brow Wiz) Oh and how do you fill them in? I feel like I always do them unevenly lol
Hi everybody, I was looking for someone to REALLY help me choose the right products. Before telling you about my skin and what I use for makeup I want to say that my budget in 210$. To start with my skin: - I have combination skin: my cheeks are normal, my T zone is normal to oily (my forehead on the T zone in oily, my nose is oily - but my nostril are kind of dry and my chin is oily to very oily) and the forehead which is not in the T zone is normal. - I have pimples only on the T zone, mostly on the nostril zone and chin. Very rarely on my forehead. But it isn't so bad, but still one or two are appearing at 2 to 3 days, then they disappear and after 2-3 days other pimple are appearing after the ones I had are starting to heal. And now I have more pimple scars than pimples. I hope you get it. XD I don't use any products in the morning and night. I only wash my face with a Dove soap. I have 18 years. What products I need in my skin care routine in the morning and night? Also, if there is something to help making my pimple scars heal faster would be helpful. And my body skin is normal, no dry areas. What products to use? So, I finished with the skin care part. Now I want to know what products are the best which fits my budged (the budget is for both skin care and makeup). - I don't use many things for makeup. I want to know a good mascara, a good lipstick which will last for at least 12 hours and a good BB/CC cream that adjusts to my skin tone. I will prefer a BB/CC cream that has SPF protection in it. - And I don't know, maybe I need some concealer for my eyes because the truth is I have some big eye bags.At least I don't have dark circles, maybe just a bit. - And I have small eyes. I would prefer not using an eyeliner. Only a good mascara for blue eyes that will make them stick out. - As I said I would prefer a BB/CC cream with SPF protection that will help me to cover my pimple scars. - And my lips are very dry if I don't use something moisturizing. - I will put some pictures of me to see my skin tone. Some are took outside and some inside. In the first picture I don't have any makeup, in the rests I have only lipstick. And please be specific, name a specific product. ^^ I am not so good at picking products, as you already can tell. Soo, if there is any beauty guru willing to help me I would be more than thankful and happy.
Hi Everyone, So I need some advice. I'm looking to find a new skincare regimen that actually works. I've used things in the past that have either worked for a bit or have done absolutely nothing. A little bit about my skin. I'm in my mid 20's and have light acne, struggle with uneven texture and have some scarring. My skin is combination and is relatively sensitive. In and ideal world my skincare would clear my acne, even out my texture and lighten my scarring. If anybody has any product recommendations that would target my problems and that you think would work for me PLEASE let me know!! Thanks so much!
I am already using the Rejuvenating Eye Gel and have had AMAZING! results. I need some help in trying to decide whether to purchase the Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra Gel or the Rejuvenating Creme. Any input is appreciated. Thank you!!
Currently at night I exfoliate a few times a week and then use a toner and a moisturizer, in the morning I just use a daily moisturizer before applying foundation. I am Definitely going to try both the first aid beuty line and the origins, in place of my Body Shop moisturizers! Are there any other products to help relieve dry skin? have you tried the Perricone MD line?
I am looking for an eye primer that will lock in my liner specifically. I have tried NARS, Sephora Collection, Benefit, and Clinique; all work perfectly for eyeshadow, but I still find my liner migrates throughout the day. I have oily skin and prefer to use a gel liner; does anyone have any suggestions or alternate methods to keeping my liner where it belongs? - Irritated Raccoon
I use Stila CC then an illuminating foundation. For a quick makeup time I use cream sticks for highlighting, contouring and cheeks. For a longer time, I use powders. I am told that my makeup looks nice but I would like to achieve a more luminescent look. Is there a finishing spray that is luminescent? I see that you have a new primer. I wondered about that.
Hi, I need some help with my skin. I believe I have dry combination (easily get oily in the T-zone; some dry patches in the cheekbone areas and chin). My face has never been the acne prone type; in fact, I barely had acne before, probably just 1-2 acnes per month. However, just 2 months recently, it has been breaking out more than usual (most of them were pustules and under skin pimples). My face does not break out that much anymore, but there are still marks of discoloration from the previous pimples, and still the under skin ones (I don't want to pop them). I have tried Murah Acne cleaning kit and Glamglow Super Mud but they did not help (the Glamglow Thirsty Mud even left my face break out more!!) Also, I have been struggling finding a moisturizer. I want something light-weight and will not clog pores. I have tried Clinique Dramatically Different but it left my face oily, greasy and made me break out even more. Now I'm using water-based gel cream from Laneige. It does feel cool when applying but it does not moisturize for a long time. My skin is quite sensitive as well. It gets red and irritate quite easily (when it's windy; when I apply makeup or unsuitable skincare products). So it's really hard for me to find an acne treatment and moisturizer. My current skincare: Face wash: Estee Lauder, Neutrogena Acne Cleaning Exfoliator: The Body Shop Seaweed (3 times a week) Toner: Estee Lauder Silky Hydrating Moisturizer: Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream I would be very grateful if you guys could help me to find a treatment for my acne (to get rid of all the under skin pimples) and the discoloration; and an appropriate moisturizer. Thank you very much.
I am currently looking for a new skincare routine for my dry skin and have no idea where to start. I currently use the hydrating toner, morning and night cream from the Body Shop but I feel like my makeup is not going on well at all and I can definitely feel the dryness creeping its way through! I do need an under eye cream and any other skincare product recommendations you may have to create a hydrated flawless complection! Thank you!
Hi! I am 26 years old and I am unsure of what type of products I should be using to take care of my skin now. I have combination skin (oily t-zone, especially after wearing makeup). Currently, I use a cleanser, vitamin c moisturizer in the morning, toner with glycolic acid at night, and a serum at night. However, I think the products I am currently using are too drying, and I'm looking to change things up and want to make sure I choose what I use correctly. I want to be proactive to keep my skin looking good for as long as possible, but I know it's not good to use powerful anti-aging products too soon as they can thin out your skin and end up having the opposite effect. So, help! What type of products should I be using, and when should I be using them?
When I don't wear makeup I am normal/ slightly dry. When I put makeup on I am oily by the end of the day the only foundation I can get away with is Estée Lauder DW. Please give me any suggestions for moisterizers, skincare, foundations, primers, the whole nine yards. Also, what skin type does it sound like I have? I like a more matte finish in foundations but a natural matte. Thanks for the advice!!
I saw a tinted gel that I'd like to purchase, but it has ten shades, and I don't know which shade to choose. I also want to purchase a concealer, but am having the same problem regarding the correct shade. I was at Sephora recently, and they did some type of computer imaging, and gave me my correct shade for two foundations, which are right on, and I really love. The foundations are: Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Matting Oil Free, and Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation. The shade for Immaculate is: Sable, and the shade for Amazonian is: Tarte. Thanks for any suggestions.
I really do not like applying mascara. I have tried going to a salon for individual extensions. I was not impressed - for the price of a full set and the costly refills, they did not look that great. The girl applying the extentions told me my natural lashes are "twisted" and growing in different directions. I love the idea of false eyelashes that I do not need to mess with and can skip the mascara application. Any suggestions for my "twisted" lashes?.
I'm looking to use Becca products to create an everyday makeup looksI just need opinions on what foundation (between a light to medium coverage) blushes, highlighters and bronzer anything from Becca that would look well with my skin tone (Tahoe in NARS or 1Y11) if using a powder foundation would putting a moisturizing primer before the foundation help keep my skin from feeling dry throughout the day.
I bought Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser and now I am almost out. I don't see it in your skin care line anymore. Any suggestions for a replacement? My face always feels wonderful with this cleanser and now don't have a clue what to buy to replace it.
I live in a tropical climate where most people don't have central AC. How can I store my beauty products, especially make-up, to keep them from going bad or bring ruined by the heat and humidity? I sometimes get trial sizes when I can, but that's not an option for everything nor is it available for everything. I also thought of putting a make-up bag in my purse and carrying it around with me, but I'd rather not have to. What do you guys do or what do you think would help? Also, how much affect do the heat and humidity have on different products?
i recently got a job as a pharmacy cashier at my local rite aid. our work outfit is a blue shirt with khaki pants. what are some good hair and makeup ideas that would go along well with those clothes? Thanks, Sarah
