Any suggestions for a foundation that has good coverage
I need a new foundation that has some really good coverage. I'm 16, so my hormones are making my acne go crazy! I have dry to oily combination skin, so if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

Dolce and Gabanna Luminous Foundation shade question?
Hello Beauty insiders,   I was hoping someone could help me with finding a shade in the D&G Luminous Foundation. I might not  be able to get to a sephora store before the sale, and need to set an order. I am a terre nueve shade in the NARS Tinted moisturizer and Linen shade in clinique even better makeup. I have never used anything else, and I feel the best shade for me would be in between these two.    When I put these options into the Skin IQ, it didn't list this foundation as one of the best matches. Can someone recommend a shade if they had experience with the D&G option  or a foundation that is similar and can give you even glowy finish, but not heavy coverage? Someone recommended Chanel Aqua or Dior Glowing makeup. Recommendations and shade help is appreciated. Thank You!

eyeliner troubles!
Hi, I bought an Urban Decay eyeliner which glides on really beautifully at first. But throughout the course of the day, it tends to smudge and get really ugly. I love eyeliner but I had to stop wearing it because of this. I feel like even waterproof eyeliners smudge. Can anyone recommend a really good eyeliner that will  last all day and look beautiful without smudging? Thanks <3

Beginner's make up must haves for business dress code.
What are some good makeup to have for beginners for work; I am in the professional phase of college and it is a business dress code. We can dress down from business but it is not enough to be called business casual. I bought a liquid foundation which I rarely use and I also have a bare minerals powder which I use more often. I have one blush from tarte called captivating, stila eyeliner and a smashbox full exposure palette. I am looking for a few makeup must haves for fall/winter or just in general to upgrade my make up a bit.

What is the best lip scrub?
I've read mixed reviews on both the Fresh Sugar Lips Sugar Scrub and the Bliss Fabulips Scrub.  When the seasons change I have problems with my bottom lip, and I'm always picking just my bottom lip.  I made my own sugar scrub but it just doesn't seem to be doing the trick.  I don't know if the Fresh Sugar Lips Sugar Scrub or the Bliss Fabulips will be better.  I'm always using lip butters and balms to try and help too.  I've had the best luck with the lip butters and aloe vera lip treatment from the Body Shop.  I also tend to go for products that have more natural ingredients.  Please help!

Audacious lipstick shade recommendation?

Setting Powders...Are they for me? If so, which one?
I use a BB cream then follow with a liquid foundation and have never used a setting or finishing powder. And, at 43, I just don't think I want the "Dewey" look anymore. I have been blessed with "normal" skin, and my concerns with using a setting powder are; one, I don't want my complexion to look too matte, and two, I'm concerned the powder will settle in to my fine lines around my eyes and actually make them appear worse. Is there such a miracle setting powder out there? Dies anyone have any suggestions where to start? I was looking into the Laura Mercier Invisable Pressed Setting Powder, does anyone have any experience with this product or any others?
