I am looking for a good foundation to make my skin look flawless, I was using Covergirl but I want something more medium to full coverage. I'm very pale, you can actually see the veins at the corners of my eyes and mouth. I also have oily, uneven skin, dark puffy circles under my eyes (that are hereditary) and I'm starting to get crow's feet! I've tried Lorac foundation and hated it, it caked really badly. I want a make up that is going to go on smooth and matte and not crease or wear off. I also need advice on a good primer.
I kind of have 2 questions - I am using the Fresh Lip Serum every night - am I understanding correctly that you should use a lip balm/conditioner over it? If so, that's my second question - recommendations. I have used Fresh's Advanced lip conditioner and I do like it but just looking to try something else. I don't want SPF as I only use this at night, and I don't like pots - I like products in tubes that I can apply directly to my lips. I also don't like anything too wet and gooey. I bought MACs Lip Conditioner and I hate how gooey it is. Any suggestions besides the Fresh ones?
I have a light complexion with yellow undertone. I use the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation in the shade fair-light neutral and Nars moisturizer in the shade Alaska . My UNDER EYE CIRCLE is really bad... I tried the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard, but it did not really help with my dark circles. That's when I decided to get this corrector. But I am really confused about he shades chooses. Should I get in Light to Medium Bisque or peach or what?
I'm looking for a really good red eyeshadow. I bought Poppy from MUFE, but I think it's too orange. I don't want to buy any Halloween makeup because I really want red in my eye color rotation. Any suggestions?
I keep seeing stuff for your butt area. Not sure if I'm calling it right 'cellulite'? How do you know if you need it? What are products supposably to do? What would you recommend for sensitive skin people?

The problem is that I don't know my color in the studio skin. with the liquid halo hd, i am a shade 2, what would be closest to my shade in the studio skin?

Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a body balm or lotion that would help cover up stretch marks or make skin tone look more even? I'm a light medium tone. I've already tried Matte body perfection gel by PERFEKT but I think it looked sort of orange on the skin. Didn't look too natural & really had to work it into the skin.
My sister loves this look and I have to re-create it for her for an event on Friday. I've tried it on myself a few times but just can't get that purple right. Any suggestions? Does anybody out there know which purple this is...brand? Thanks in advance!!
Hi ladies, I had a makeup trial for my wedding, and it didn't went as well as I expected. The picture was taken just a few minutes after the MUA had finished. Let me tell you: 1- My foundation set into fine lines a LOT... and Im just 25!! Do you know if there is any special product that I can use to avoid this to happen on my big day? 2. My makeup didn't last... neither the eyeshadows or the foundation lasted more than 4 hours. Of course a wedding last a LOT more than that, so I ask you to please help me with products what will make my makeup last longer. I have combination skin and rosacea. Very oily nose, and the rest is very dry PLEASE HELP!!!
So I've been using my Clarisonic Mia 2 for about 3 weeks now with the sensitive brush head. For the past week and a half, I've been breaking out like crazy on my forehead (which is very unusual) and getting a few pimples on my chin and cheeks. Do you think this is due to the brush being too harsh for me or do you think this is the "purging" stage that so many people experience? Should I switch brushes or wait it out? Does anyone have any personal experiences similar???
If I am a #118 in the Makeup Forever HD foundation what would I be in the Bobbi Brown Longwear even finish foundation? I would like to buy the Bobbi Brown however I have to buy if off line and I want to make sure I have the correct color the first time around. Thanks.
I have a chronic illness, and use to have a perfect olive skin tone. However, as my disease has progressed my skin is very pale. I have tried so many foundations, and nothing seems to work. I love wearing full coverage light, and flawless. Concealers are a problem, to. My dark circles are very difficult to cover. I wish my skin tone could have at least a warm glow. Any advice?
I currently use Tarte BB Tinted Treatment Primer and I love it. I don't wear much make up, but need sun protection for my lupus. And I like something with a lot of coverage to hide my redness. But I'm finding that in the Georgia humidity, it's getting cakey very quick. I love the light mousse texture for my sensitive, combo skin. Any suggestions for another light BB or CC cream?
Hi, folks-- I have very thick hair that is slightly wavy that goes to about mid-back. It will totally stay stick straight if I blow it out or use a flat iron. But if I want to coax it in the other direction and get soft curls, they fall within an hour or two. Short of dousing my hair with an entire can of hairspray, what other solutions are there? I'd love to keep the look soft and with movement. I typically use rollers, but sometimes a curling or flat iron. Thanks in advance for your help!
Hi, I'm in need of a new eye primer. I have been using the Nars Pro Prime. It has been the best I've tried so far but recently it's starting to let me down. I don't know if it's the warmer weather or the eye shadow I'm using but every thing has been creasing, smudging, and/or fading by mid day. My eyelids are super oily, I never even put concealer on them because it never stays. I've already tried Urban Decay and have never liked that one. I've even used the hourglass face primer on my eyelids but that didn't help much either. Can anyone recommend a good eye primer for me? I would also prefer the eye primer to be paraben free. Thank you.
Hellooo Beauty Talk! I recently posted asking for the best all-in-one foundation so I can streamline the routine. I've been using a drugstore set (Maybelline Fit Me) out of habit and want to step up my game. Andy reccomended NARS and I'm pretty jazzed about its great reviews, but I guess I really can't do JUST foundation. Here's the lowdown: I'm working on clearing up my acne (yay, being responsible and washing my face every day), so I'd like to keep as few products on my face as possible, while still hiding what blemishes I have until I have better skin. BB's and CC's just don't provide heavy enough coverage as much as I like their multitasking abilities. So, based on rudimentary research and what I know, I'd like to streamline the face to a primer and foundation, and powder if I MUST, though I'd like to avoid it. I'm considering using a Smashbox Primer, either the Photo Finish More Than Primer - Blemish Control, or Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer. Do I need to use a salicylic acid moisturizer if I use the Blemish Control primer? Can I use the Color Correcting primer all over or just red spots? After this, foundation per earlier post. Finally, I'm guessing powder is completely optional depending on if I like how my foundation finishes. Right? If anyone is going through something similar, has multitasking product reccomendations, or advice in general, I could really use it! XO RedFoxHeidi
I have about 1300 points and have been eyeing the MJ 1000 point perk for a while. I'm a little unsure about the colors suiting me. I'm NW20 in MAC, (1Y06 Sephora), blue eyes, fair skin, blonde hair. Will it end up making me look like a vampire? As well, I tend to prefer lipsticks rather than glosses so that is a concern too. Does the gloss wear well over the lipstick or not really? When I think gloss I think MAC Lipglass which is OK to wear a dab over lipstick, but it's too sticky for me to wear by itself, and it lasts about 5 minutes on me. What do you guys think?
It's my senior year and I want to make sure I don't look like a zombie everyday. I get in super early and go straight to a job after school then come home. I need some advice on products that are easy to apply and last all day to brighten up my dark circles. Also I want to even out my skin tone and add length to my eyelashes. I have dark hair, combination skin, and a light complexion. Does anyone have any recommendations on a natural everyday look? Please and thank you!!
I don't really have a question, just sharing this observation. My face produces oil at a crazy rate. Every day I would do my makeup and by 10:00 I'd be crazy oily. I buy those blotting films by the skid and use blot powder constantly. I finally opted to try my serum and foundation without moisturizer and what a huge difference! And my moisturizer is an oil control lotion (from MAC) but it was still giving me an un-needed boost of moisture. I tried a few primers but they didn't really help. It's funny - we (or maybe just I lol) are so programmed to think we MUST use a moisturizer every morning, but clearly that isn't true. I do use an excellent serum (Estee Lauder Perfectionist) and foundation (Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint) and love them, so I am getting excellent skincare benefits from those. Maybe in the winter things will change, but I can't believe it took me so long to figure this out!
