Hello, everyone! I am an Intermediate to Semi-Professional (more intermediate than professional) makeup user and I would like to know the makeup remover that works the best on sensitive skin without causing irritation. Please help! Thanks!
Hello, Earlier in the week, a Beauty Insider, Mia, helped me combined my two accounts (email/online and physical BI card), however when that happened I had to build my account from the start again and I lost contact with her due to getting a new account. Now with the two accounts combined, she told me I was 23 points away from reaching VIB status, and to let her know whenever I spent my remaining points before 12/31 so she could upgrade my status. I've recently purchased a few items at Sephora, surpassing 23 points; I would really appreciate it if you can upgrade my status to VIB. Thank you!
After years of looking at it, I finally purchased the clarisonic mia 2 this holiday. However, unlike other users where they see magical right after one use, my skin turn worse. I already have soft smooth skin but you know I still want my skin to be better that's why I brought it. However, it has been a month and a half now and my skin isn't looking better. At first I start having these bump on my cheek but there are no acne or pimples in it. Now I having these huge cyst or pimples all over my forehead. What should I do. I don't want to return it because I want the clarisonic all these years :-( but I really scare if I keep using it my skin just getting worse and worse. What should I do? Should I return it? Thank you for all your reply. It's really help to calm my panics. lol I brought the deep pore cleaning set and I used the products that come with the clarisonic. At first when I brought it, I used it twice a day. But after a few days I dropped it down to once a day because I felt it is unnecessary and my skin start to get burn (like there a cut in my skin but I just don't see the cut). Then my cheek got all these bumps like I mentioned earlier so I stop for a week. Then those bumps went away and I started using the clarisonic again because the clarisonic does help my cleaning routine much easier and faster. Right after I started using the clarisonic again that my forehead start giving my those ugly painful acne cysts. And no, clarisonic and the products that come with it is the only thing I change in my cleaning routine. I just purchased the sensitive and the delicate brush head but I still hesitate should I give these two brushes a try or just return all of them before it is too late.
Hi all! I have some scars on my chin for a car accident and I use MUFE full cover concealer, but I saw this today: http://www.sephora.com/5-camouflage-cream-palette- P12630?skuId=873455 I really want the green concealer at the end of the pallette for fair/light skin but I don't want all the other concealers. So my question is: Does anyone know of a green concealer that works for redness that I can use under my MUFE full cover concealer? Thank you!
Hi all, so I'm about to run out of my serum (the clinique dark spot one). I didn't feel like it really worked all that great for me, so I picked up a couple of samples of other serums at my Sephora this morning. My main criteria was evening out my skin tone (with hydration and anti-aging as secondaries), but I know it usually takes longer than a sample lasts to see the full effects. So I was wondering since you all are so gorgeous and knowledgeable whether anyone had recommendations? The three I've picked up samples for are: Ren resurfacing AHA concentrate Kate Sommerville P299 serum Murad active radiance serum Has anyone tried these? What were your experiences like? I have very non-sensitive skin (seriously, nothing reacts, I joke that my layer of dry skin creates an impenetrable barrier) so no concerns there.
My current routine: -bare minerals powder (the pressed compact) in medium -Neutrogena concealer on blemishes and red spots -Ooh la lift dotted undereyes -bare binerals bronzer in warmth for a blush (contouring) My skin type: combination (I get dry spots in winter, but still also have the occasion breakout and redness) My skin tone: I'd say it's a medium beige. I get very tan in the summer. I am not sure if I have yellow or pink undertones? What I'd like to have: that smooth, airbrush finish, but with the ease of something I can do every morning (fairly quickly) Right now I feel splotchy, and like I don't have enough coverage to hide imperfections. I want an overall brightness back! I recently purchased the Hourglass Ambient powder in Luminous, and am thinking of also purchasing the Radiant color. I prefer a more bronze look to a "blush" as opposed to anything super pink. I want to bring out my cheek bones. I have used Dior's airflash foundation, and love it, but is that too heavy to use everyday? Sometimes I break out after using it. I also have some loose finishing powder by Chanel, but don't really know what to do with it! I need advice on possibly using a foundation, and on which brushes are best for each of the aforementioned products. I currently use the all-over bare minerals brush and the bare minerals long flat kabuki for bronzer. I am looking for a highlighting brush(es), foundation brush and product recommendations, bronzer/blush product and brush recommendations, and general advice for the order to apply all of these products! Thank you.
I've tried using primers and setting with powder and it still seems to crease. Is there any tricks to how I can keep it from creasing? And btw, are there any other concealers similar to the Erase Paste without all the creasing?
I am doing my makeup in the morning and looks great but once i go to my car and turns red on... here is my routine.. I do my morning routine, cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. primer concealer (makeup forever, to cover little scaring). my foundation (which i tried, stila, lancome, clinique, and estee lauder double wear) set it with a powder (translucent) Bronzer (sometimes) Nars blush.. I do not know what im doing wrong. this happens to me with every single foundation... PLEASE HELP!
I have extremely oily skin in my T-Zone as well. I literally have tried The Becca Ever Matte Primer, MUFE Mat Velvet +, Nars the Matte foundation, I've tried almost all of the oil-free and oily skin drugstore foundations. I need some serious advice... Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I have to powder within 1-2 hours of applying my makeup. Also, I have acne prone skin, and I feel like giving up. Please, help a girl out!
Recently, I got a makeover at one of the counters, and LOVED IT! However, within about 15 min, the eyeliner used on my waterline (Urban Decay) had somehow smudged onto my contacts. I must have looked crazy going around the mall with super squinty eyes and asking for directions to a place where they sold contact solution...heehee.... Anyways, I was wondering: What is the best eyeliner for waterlines--one that won't smudge onto contacts? Also, black, nude, or white for the color? <3 thanks!
Don't kill me but I hate washing my face! How effective are the makeup remover cleansing cloths? Specifically I use Neutrogena but I'm wondering the effectiveness of them in general too? Is sephora's better since they are not specific to makeup removal?
I have been struggling recently with a couple of break outs, since it's finals week I've been studying my butt off and when I get stressed out acne usually appears (how lovely). I currently have Lancome Teinte Idole Foundation in the shade Ivoire 4N and was wondering if Kat Von D has better coverage ( as many say it's more of a full coverage foundation). I am pretty neurotic if even a little pimple shows up on my face and if anybody could give me any advice on good foundation, concealers, or tips to clear up my skin. Thanks for reading, Nicole
Anyone know what Maracuja Concealer shade i would get if I wear Medium Sand by Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15? Light medium? Medium? I'm 3Y07.

Help please! I am looking for another one of the give me more lip sets.

Does anyone know if they'll be getting more in stock??
What is the best make-up colors and brands for a teenager with porcelain pale skin, red hair, and blue eyes. She usually wears her make-up light and she likes easy and quick application make-up. She doesn't have any skin issues that I know of. I am new to this site and do not know a lot about make-up so all advice is appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hello all, new person here looking for some advice on where to start. From as far back as I can remember, I have been utterly clueless about makeup, skincare, beauty in general. I think I must've missed that secret class that beautiful girls get where they learn how to pick shades and do all that wizardry. Seriously—the first makeup I got as a kid I used to make incredibly realistic bruises on myself. So... let's just say I am clueless, but I want to start somewhere! The few products I have used have never really felt right on my skin, or looked right (and I know, it's got to be like painting, practice, practice, practice) but I haven't worn actual makeup since I went to a wedding in early 2012. I feel like I have very dry skin that doesn't like having anything on it, it feels tight in the mornings even after I slap some lotion on it, and it gets red for a bit before it calms down. I think I've mostly tried mineral makeup because long ago some consultant somewhere told me it was good for the skin, but I honestly have no idea. It's not like I go anywhere fancy, I just want to have the option of dressing it up a bit without looking like a complete dork or dropout from clown college. Could some of you point me in the right direction for products to try? For a starter newbie kit to have in my drawer? I am going to assume that all of the makeup I currently own should be thrown out at this point, if it's older than, what, two years? Where do I even start? Help!
