Foundation for Skin With Texture
I am in a foundation slump! i recently got the Marc Jacobs Remarcable foundation and i regret it SO much. My face looks awful no matter how I prime, set, or apply . It clings to texture I didn't even think my skin had! I just can't find a staple foundation that I can always fall back on. I'm a normal skin type, but I have noticeable pores and it's not even that I have dry skin it's just.. texture! My nose texture looks awful no matter what I try, help! In desperate need of a foundation that I can rely on to make my skin appear smooth without emphasizing the pores or texture of my skin, while still giving me the medium coverage I'm looking for!

Has anyone tried this yet? I noticed its finally back in stock and am deciding which shade to choose, between dark blonde and brunette. I need something warm toned, im currently using the brunette gel in ABH but i find the wand too big, and messy.

Skin Type Help?!
Ok so I've been battling with this issue for a while. I can't seem to figure out my skin type. i thought I was combo but I'm still iffy on that. So my forehead flakes especially around my brows Every now and then it flakes on my cheeks but not usually. My nose is awful after applying foundation to it , it looks super flaky, super cakey so I usually avoid putting product on my nose or I use a little bit of left over from my b.b. (I do have blackheads) But here's the thing, I get oily and shiny a couple hours after I apply my makeup , and I get super cakey, everywhere. I also have big pores on my nose, cheek area. And I have acne. What is wrong with my skin? It seems dry and flaky but at the same time I get super oily and shiny hours after my makeup , even when applying matte primers..

Noob
Hey, I'm an absolute noob when it comes to makeup but I really want to learn how to do it. I'm vaguely familiar with eye shadow, eyeliner and lipstick. I've never used contour, concealer or any of the other products I've seen on here. So, my question is; what products should I buy for eyes, face, brows and lips. Also, how much can I expect to spend? Thank you!

Best Eye Cream for almost 50 y/o Eyes- Puffiness and Dark Circles
Okay- just ran out of my eye cream (darn it- love that it has a pump- but can't tell when it is going to run out) and am looking for an amazing eye cream that will depuff- in the mornings and illuminate dark circles.  I have to admit that I am eyeing the La Mer Concentrate Eye Cream with its special ball wand but at $200.00- I just think I will be disappointed because I always am when I spend too much on beauty products.  You put A LOT of expectations into $$$ stuff.   If it is worth it, I will buy it.  Anyhow- any suggestions would be amazing!     Thank you,.

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless shades
I love the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation for my dry skin, and it covers the redness in my face that I have been getting from using Retin-A.  I currently have Stromboli, which has the best undertone for my olive skin, but it is too dark now that I haven't been in the sun.  I have tried Santa Fe, but it was really pink.  Shiseido Synchro Skin in Golden 3 is a good reference for the depth of my skin tone in the winter.  What would be a good shade suggestion for Nars ADLW?  I would not mind mixing it with Stromboli if that is best either.  Thank you!

Rosacea and exfoliants
I have rosacea.  It is greatly reduced since I had a V-laser treatment in April.  I also had IPL in March.  The back to back laser treatments have left my skin more sensitive than they were previously.  I am hoping it will settle as it heals and it seems to be improving. I am also 51 and finding I have different skin needs.  My gritty Exfoliators, which I previously loved, are leaving my skin red, even when I am gentle in the areas I have rosacea. I am considering moving to a gel peel.  I am wondering if the Boscia or the Philip Thomas Roth would be the better choice?

Starter Eyeshadow Palette?
I don't use eyeshadow that much, but lately, I've been wanting to get one nice eyeshadow palette. I have medium skin brown hair/eyes if that makes any difference and neutral/warm undertones. I would like a couple matte shades and a few shimmer shades, but that's not necessarily a priority. Wondering what the best starter palette would be?    *A couple I've looked at: Lorac Pro 1 and 3, Naked 1/2/3, Tartelette In Bloom, and the Too Faced Chocolate bar palette.

Hello! I am having a hard time choosing the perfect foundation for my skin color. I think I am cool toned and I have slightly dry skin. Can someone recommend a foundation that will be suitable for my skin type and color? Also as you can see in the photo I have a lot of random blotches of redness. Does anyone know a good skin care product that can cure my redness. I also dislike how I have little little pimples as small as my pores!
