I recently ordered philosophy's miracle worker miraculous skin care collection set and have used it for a few days (day and night) but I was wondering how I could use my tartes maracuja oil with it? Or if I shouldn't use anymore even though I have a jumbo size of it. Just seems like a waste and I do really like the stuff. Any suggestions?? Oh and I would only use the tarte oil at night, so I just want to know if there's a way to incorporate in my new nighttime skincare routine. Thank you!!!
Hi, I have been using the shade 'Barcelona' (medium w/ olive undertones) in the NARS Sheer Glow through the summer and love it. However, my tan is fading and I'm looking for a lighter shade to mix into my Barcelona as I head towards my naturally paler complexion in the winter. What would you suggest as I have to buy online and can't make it into a store? Cheers, Courtenay
Hey guys! I need some advice for men skincare. My 32 year old brother suffers from oily skin and breakouts. I want to get him a gift to combat his skincare concerns and I've been telling him he should try clearsonic. I don't have one but I've always wanted one myself! I saw they have a new clearsonic alpha fit cleansing system for men but it is $189 whereas there is also a new Clinique for men sonic deep cleansing brush for only $89. Does anyone have any recommendations or thoughts on each? The Clinique definitely fits my budget more but is it any less effective? Or any other skincare and tool recommendations for him?
I have scarring from acne and tweezing ingrown hairs (hirsituism). I need a new skin care routine and all new makeup. I have combination skin that gets more oily as the day goes. I have used Clinique and bare minerals in the past. What do you suggest for a new routine that is affordable? Thanks in advance!
i have tried MANY different concealers and foundations to try and cover the dark patches on my skin. (especially for the dark patch above my upper lip that resembles a five o' clock shadow, and is quite embarrasing) any suggestions?
I'm fairly new to this and recently got a few samples from my local sephora. I now want to try other foundations I've heard really great things about but I don't know my shade. The foundation samples I got were from MUFE y365 and Kat Von D #53 & #54. Is it possible to find my skintone number based on these foundations?
Hey All! I'll be 31 soon and am finally starting to take my eye skincare regiment seriously. I'm looking for something (especially at night) to help address fine lines/wrinkles, but am totally overwhelmed at all of the options. I do understand that I should be looking for something with retinol and have been pouring over reviews for a bunch of products (Verso Super Eye and Dr. Gross Triple Correction serums seem to be the top so far), but want to make sure I don't spend money on something that's not going to help in the long run - so here I am! Thanks in advance!
Help! Im going into 9th grade and am looking for a better makeup/skincare routine, as of right now i wear an elf primer, maybelline acne fighting bb cream, a crappy concealer, and a smooth minerals press powder, any ideas as to what i can use to cover the occassional breakouts (and a better concealer) ps- i have a fair skintone (im a redhead) and a normal skin type
Hi! I'm stuck home after back surgery so can't get out to my Sephora. I'm looking for a new foundation to cover/fill in acne scars. I have a great primer but need foundation. Here's my info: I'm naturally very fair with cool pink undertones but use self-tanner so not sure if that would effect the undertone of the foundation I pick. I want my face to match my neck with self-tanner on it. I think if I get a foundation with pink undertones it won't match the yellow in the tanner. I have combo skin, oily t-zone. I'm 53 and I take good care of my skin so wrinkles aren't an issue. To recap: need foundation to cover acne scars (some deep); what color/undertone should I get to work with the tone self-tanner makes my skin? I'm looking at Estée Lauder Extreme Wear (I think that's what it's called) or Kat Von D but I'm open to ANY suggestions. Phew! Ty so much for helping me! Being stuck at home sucks...especially when you wanna makeup shop!
I need advice on skin care that works for a 36 year old that still has acne. Not only do I still have problems with acne, I'm now in my 30s and don't want to create wrinkles. My skin is olive and tends have dark spots where blemishes have been. I also have dark spots along my jaw line which are new in the last couple of years. I'm sure a lot of it is related to stress and hormones, but neither one of those things are going away. I've tried pretty much everything including Obagi. It seems that things people have recommended have either focused on improving the dark spots and made the acne worse or vice versa. Isn't there something out there that can effectively treat both? Any suggestions?

Hi, everyone! I have a question regarding gift-cards bought in United States. One of my friend has a Sephora gift card and she doesn't wear makeup so I was wondering if I can use her gift card number in Canada at any Sephora retail store. I won't have the actual gift-card but would a gift card number or scanned copy of the gift card work? Looking forward to any replies by the experts.
So I dyed my hair green a few months back and I faded it but didn't take all the color out. After that I bleached it, which didn't take out the rest of the green...so then I used One N Only Colorfix (I used it about a week ago) from Sally's Beauty Supply. It seemed like it removed it, but the green is slowly coming back. Nothing is working. My hair is a disgusting embarrassing snot green/yellow color. I wanted to dye it pink tomorrow! Will the pink dye cover it, or will I have to try something else? Here is my hair color now (sorry, I had just washed it): I wanted to dye it this color: Please help! I'm at my wits end.
I typically get my brows waxed to clear out obvious strays, and pretty much keep things natural beyond that. Being a beauty newbie who is starting to experiment with more involved looks, I keep thinking the portions of my brow that are closest to my nose are a little too bushy and cut off my brow bone a little too much. I'm thinking about carefully tweezing on my (where I can make decisions on each individual hair) rather than go to a salon and risk having too much removed. The look I am going for is a mild reshape to make my brow bone more visible and give me a little more space to play with colors. Having a fuller face, I suspect I shouldn't make them too whispy. Is is this a reasonable goal? Some image of what I currently have going on are below. Am I nuts to consider reshaping on my own? Should I use a template such as the ABH ones, or just go without? Any favorite templates? If professional help is advised, how to I find a professional who won't over do it? I realize this this is such a basic question, so I really appreciate any advice I can get!
Hi, everyone! I've read a bunch of older threads regarding glasses and makeup, but I have a specific question for those of you who wear glasses and makeup. I need to wear my glasses at work because I work on a computer, and I just can't look at screens anymore without them. I don't need them for the rest of the day, until it gets dark, and I need them again. Basically, I'm going to spend a considerable portion of my day wearing them, and a considerable portion not wearing them. Every day when I take them off, though, my foundation is smudged on the sides of my nose and the bridge of my nose, where they rest on my face. The question, then, is what will actually survive through 8 hours or so of glasses? My usual routine is toner and moisturizer in the morning, then primer (either Smashbox or the Porefessional, whichever I grab first), foundation (Clinique Even Better Makeup), and a little bit of powder to set it (typically ELF, unless I have a sample of something else laying around). Is there an unbeatable foundation I should try? Different powder? Or do I just need to start carrying a kit to fix my face after work? (Ugh)
Hi, I am a 2Y08 Sephora color match and I typically use the Bobbie Brown Medium to Dark BB cream. Which shade of the Sephora Collection Skin Perfect CC Cream would be the best match for me? Also would the Stila CC Color Correcting Cream in the shade Tone work for me? Thanks!
Basically I'm a slob. I'm, 23 working full time in the city, and having a 2 hour or more commute ONE WAY. So I have not been taking care of myself. But now I won't be having that crazy commute anymore and I want to start looking like I care what I look like. -combination skin, oily t-zone but can get dry in other areas. -have a break out once in a while but nothing too bad, black heads as well -no real skin sensitivy that I can think of -I just want to have nice skin for days when I don't want to wear make up and for days that I do want to my make up will look on point because I started with a good foundation (my skin!)
I'm trying to find my shade in Double Wear. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour foundation in Medium Beige matched my skin perfectly but didn't provide enough long lasting coverage. My skin is light-medium cool toned. The Estée Lauder counter gave me Desert Beige but it is too warm & washed me out. From what I can tell from searching on line Pure Beige 2C1 or Fresco 2C3 would be better for my skin tone. Need help comparing the Tarte shade to Double Wear. Any suggestions? Thanks!
