I've been filling in my eyebrows for about 2 years now and I feel like I've improved greatly in skill. I finally upgraded to an ABH brow definer and I love it but I feel like I'm filling my eyebrows wrong. I feel like my lack of an arch and sparse hair leaves me over-compensating with blocky brows.  Can someone give me advice on how to tweeze or wax my eyebrows into a better shape? What would be the best way to fill in my brows, working with the hair I have?  Pictures: My natural brows, and how I typically fill them in.

I must say, I am so very sad to hear that Nude is leaving Sephora; it was the only thing I could use on my sensitive, acne-proned skin that wouldn't cause further breakouts   My question to you lovely beauties is what is your favorite moisturizer? I have combination skin with a dry T-Zone and oily everywhere else.

I have this dress for prom and I wear glasses. I was wondering if I should do my eye makeup darker instead of a light brown/gold because it might be hard to see from far away. I just wanted opinions and see if I should do more of a dramatic smokey eye, since I was thinking it could bring out my blue eyes and make my false lashes look better.

I want to get a true color match with the  Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay -in-Place makeup, but I can't find this product around my area. I have a true match with make up for ever Ultra HD 120=y245 (color IQ is 3Y04). I also have a Giogrio Armani luminous silk foundation which shade is 4 (lighter than my true match, but it works perfect on me). Another true color match I got in store is Laura mercier mineral powder real sand (color IQ is 2R04). Can anyone figure out what is my color match in Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay -in-Place Makeup ?  Thanks!

I'm 21, oily/combination/acne prone skin, very fair skin. In the mornings, I wash my face with Tarte Deep Dive Cleansing gel, and follow up with an under eye cream (DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Soufflé), Anti-redness serum (REN evercalm anti-redness serum), and a moisturizer (Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream) At night, its the same routine, except after washing my face, I add in Retin-A.

I have had my Beauty Blenders for quite some time now. I have the pink one and the black one. I recently ran out of my cleaner that came with the set of Beauty Blenders, and lets face it, been too lazy to go out and buy more. So I have been using a shampoo that I keep to the side, it cleans them very well BUT it has left them dry and not as soft. Any tips on how to re- "moisturize" my beauty blender? And a at home remedy to clean them? Thank you!!

What products would you recommend for a dry matte look that can stay put on my face even in warm weather?   I live in California, so it is pretty common to have a hint of face sweat as I go about my day in the sunshine. I wear a cream concealer under Sephora powder foundation, and I feel like maybe 30% of the time I will look in the mirror on my lunch and there are my cheeks, shining through a couple small patches where my make up used to be, but isn't.    I typically avoid liquid foundations because I hate that wet look they can give you. I know some people live for that, but to me it just looks like a shiny, sweaty face. I like a soft, dry, look, which is why I'm so excited that Matte everything is showing up all over the place. But does liquid matte really come out matte? I figured this is exactly where to find out.    My morning beauty routine is: splash of toner, moisturizer, do my hair while my moisturizer absorbs, concealer, do my eyes while my concealer dries, then powder foundation. Is my make up moving around because I'm doing something wrong?    What products would you recommend for a dry matte look that can stay put on my face even in warm weather?

Hey all! I have tried so hard lately to cover up my deep set eyes but I can't find anything that helps.  I'm so self-conscious about it although I'm sure it isn't that bad! I have attached a picture to show what I'm talking about!  This picture is after using Bobbi Brown Corrector.  Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

Hi!   I have the BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation and it seem really nice, doesn't make my skin breakout!   Buuuuut I feel like I can't get the application right. I know with mineral foundation and foundation in general, you should layer. And I think I'm layering! Starting out with a little and just building up.   Since I have acne and some acne scars I want to cover it up. However, the foundation as I layer seems to get weirdly orange and really obvious that I have foundation on and just looks really bad--without even giving me more than a little bit of coverage.   So my question--after this lengthy thing lol--is what am I doing wrong? Or rather, how do I properly apply this foundation so that it gives me full coverage and looks nice like all the Youtube videos and BareMinerals videos I see??

I have dry skin with an oily patch on my forehead and have the occasional breakout. But now my face has started getting extremely rough and uneven and filled with terrible dry patches and acne spots. I haven't been using any new products or doing anything unusual. Is there anything i can do or products I could use to calm it down? Thanks!!!!

Hello Sephora family!   I used to cut myself really badly, and the scars are awful. All of the bad ones are about half an inch wide and 2 inches long, and they're a reddish-purple colour.   I really need to get these as faded as possible, and I need to know what product(s) you would recommend for achieving this.   Thank you!

I have been wanting to try out a new lipstick, but I need help finding one. I like the look of most matte lipsticks, but they leave my lips too dry. I have tried the NYX matte lip creams, but they leave my lips dry and it doesn't last long. I want to get lipstick that lasts and doesn't transfer onto anything/anyone. I basically want lipstick that makes me forget I'm wearing it. I am open to trying lip stains, but I don't personally have experience with them so I wouldn't know what kind to get. Just nothing overly glossy!   Please help! I need opinions.   Thanks -Gaby

I've probably spent about $100+ on trying different foundations - and nothing works. It's either too yellow, too pink, too dark, too light, etc. The only foundation I have ever used that has actually matched my skin tone perfectly is Neutrogena's Skin Clearing Liquid Foundation in Natural Ivory (20). I really want to branch out and try some new foundations because lately I haven't liked the way this has been leaving my skin afterwards, but I have tried so many different ones with no luck. Any suggestions? Including a pic of myself for reference because I'm desperate.

What is the best order of application for translucent setting powder/finishing powder and blush/bronzer? Should I apply setting powder before blush and bronzer or is it best to apply setting powder after applying blush and bronzer? I've always thought setting powder should be applied before blush and bronzer but I'd like to know for sure what the best way is.

I'm confused as to whether I can use cleansing oils with my Foreo Luna (mini 2). I have been reading many reviews and FAQs but I seem to find contrasting opinions regarding cleansing oils. Foreo's brand representative on Sephora.com said that cleansing oils can be used with the Luna. However, the official Foreo's website states that cleansing oils should not be used with the Foreo Luna (I found this info in the FAQs section). I sent an email to Foreo to make sure and they replied:   " Hello Thank you for your email  In regards to your email FOREO does not recommend to use cleaning oils with your FOREO device  It will damage the silicon surface use the cleansing oil to cleanse your face  rinse it with water. always make sure you have no oils when using your FOREO device. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us, have a great day."   So...Can I actually use cleansing oils with my Foreo Luna? I'm so confused right now. I don't want to risk damaging my device.

Hi! I've been using a Beauty Blender for a couple years now but I've found that sometimes the long wear foundation I use won't come out when I wash it. I use Estee Lauder Double Wear and when I go to clean my Beauty Blender there're patches of the foundation that get hard and won't come out. It's not just a stain, there's actually a hard patch of dried foundation (sometimes on the surface and sometimes i can feel it inside the blender). I've used their soap with both hot and cold water, but nothing seems to help. Also, it's happening with a brand new blender so its age can't be the problem. I need some advice on how to get it out. Thanks!

I'm new to the whole makeup world and haven't got even the slightest clue of where to start! I don't wanna seem bothersome and I'm kind of shy of approaching the employees for help, but IF i were to ask for help, will they be willing to help in any way? Believe me when I say I have NO knowledge of makeup whatsoever. I've worn it like 2 times in my 18 years of existence and I'm just now realizing how nice makeup is lol so I'm starting to explore and I want to know more about foundation, concealer, eyeliner, highlighter, basically EVERYTHING haha, but I'm worried about seeming clueless/annoying cuz idk how makeup works. I know the employee's jobs is to help, but i was wondering do you have to have a certain amount of knowledge of makeup to begin with when asking for help or can you be totally clueless and it won't matter?

Every time I apply my foundation I seem to get dry flaky spots on my cheeks and around my nose and it doesn't seem to cover up the pinkness of my cheeks. I wash my face every morning and night, use a mist and use a pretty thick moisturizer, is it the foundation causing these problems or do I need to change something in my skin routine?

Hey ladies,   I recently bought the Jurlique Advanced Herbal Recovery Serum and have used it consistently for about 3 days or so. I'm starting to get tiny red pimples which were not there before. And some random ones where I don't normally break out. Is my skin purging? Or am I just breaking out?   I bought the serum in hopes of fixing some dark spots from past pimples.    Help and recommendations would be great!!!
