I currently use Makeup Forever HD foundation, but feel that it is too heavy for everyday use.  What are some suggestions for everyday foundation that isn't too heavy and seems like I have nothing on?

Most of the supplements from HUM have high ratings on this site, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried any of them? They're pretty new on here and I usually take the reviews here with a grain of salt. In general, I don't sit on either side of the fence when it comes to supplements and if they work or not. I'd love to hear anyone's experience with these - favorable or not so much. Although I'm interested in most of them, I'm particularly intrigued by the Runway Ready set and the Daily Cleanse.

i recently purchased the hourglass ambient lighting palette but I'm unsure how to use it correctly. Are their any links that describe how to apply the 3 colors?    Thanks for any tips you all may have

So, I've tried literally every single foundation, bb, cc, and tinted moisturizer that Sephora carries that fits my requirements (moisturizing, non-chemical SPF, doesn't settle into my huge pores or flaky spots, non-sticky, medium coverage) and not a single one has worked. I finally tried the Clinique Even Better foundation, however what appears to be the lightest shade (linen) is still one shade too dark for my ultra-pale skin. I really love this foundation, and I'd like to use it. Anybody have any ideas how I could make this foundation work for me?

I am looking for a new fall lipstick. I am trying to decide between Venom and Shame from the UD Revolution line. I already own Buxom's Menace, so I'd like a color that isn't too similar to that lipstick. I am light with pink undertones.

We are going to Barcelona and Paris and Provence. Don't want to be loaded down with product. Dry/krepey eyes, 58 years old. What should I bring? I use everything- cleanser, serum, moisture with spf, light powder, concealer, liner, shadow, mascara, lipstick/gloss. Any eye shadow that's powder doesn't seem to work. Love the smaller, all in one kits yet they mostly feather pearly, sparkle shades that don't work. Fair skin, green eyes. HELP!

Makeup isn't my environment, yet. And contouring is very new to me. I was wondering what the store carried for contouring products? What would you guys recommend I'd buy as a new person to this? Like I'm sure you can go out and get 20 different things just to do this, but I want something simple and straight forward. I'll go in and have someone show me how to contour my face, but it would be less overwhelming if I had someone here tell what would be best to get and what brushes would be most useful and needed.

Hey guys, could someone tell me how the Beauty Studio make-overs go?   Like, once you are there do you tell them what products to use or they just sit you down and use the products they think are best? Also, BIG QUESTION, do you show up with a clean face (no makeup)? I don't feel too comfortable walking around the mall bare-faced until I am able to make my way through the food court and into the Sephora store. Can make-up simply be removed at the store instead? I have never used this service and am completely clueless as to how it goes (besides making the online appointment). Help?

I am at a point where I have tried everything to try and control the oil on my nose and t-zone area and nothing has worked so far. I have tried skin care products such as origins zero oil, shisheido, MAC, and Christian Dior. I have also tried mattifiers from MAC, Peter Thomas Roth, Becca, Murad, Boscia, cover FX, and mineral veil. A few products help for about an hour or two but I'm oily again after about 2 hours. Any suggestions on something that I can try?

Hi girls! I need your help to find my shade in other full coverage foundations and concealer. I think Marc Jacob's gel genius foundation in 46 "Golden Deep" is perfect. So what other foundation / shade would be perfect or close to perfect? High-end and/or drugstore.       *please don't use the "color iq" I've tried it and found it inaccurate.       thanks!

Hi everyone! I would love some advice on my morning makeup routine! I have combination skin, usually gets a little too oily if I'm wearing too much makeup or in the heat of course, and occasionally a few tiny dry patches around my chin. I have sensitive and acne prone skill as well, so looking for a foundation to cover a few tiny bumps up and some other acne scars. I've been using the Ole Henriksen vitamin C truth serum in the mornings, followed by a Vichy water based oil free moisturizer (which I'm looking to replace!) I use the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer at night, the lady at sephora told me it wasn't moistuirzing enough for the morning ?Then I have just been using a concealer where needed, and finishing it with the Sephora foundation face powder. I was using the NARS TM in the past and without a moisturizer on before my face gets dry, but with one one I found that I would feel too oily! I have also used Laura Mercier TM in the past and am considering switching back if it is not as oily. Does anyone had advice on how I should be using it, and if these products would all be okay to use together? Thank you!!!

I'll admit that even though I've been into makeup for a pretty long time, I never really payed too much attention to my skin. But, now I'm trying to change that and I don't even know where to start! I've just run out of my cheap drugstore facial cleanser, so I figure it's time I actually put some effort into this.   I think my face would be considered combination. It gets both oily and dry...sometimes it looks like dry skin with oil ON TOP of it, ugh. (But, I've been using Ceramidin, which seems to be taking care of that pretty well.) I very rarely get acne and I don't really have any blemishes other than a kind of uneven skintone. And my skin doesn't seem to be very sensitive.   So, I'm looking for a daily cleanser for combination skin, doesn't need any special acne treatment, and doesn't necessarily have to be for sensitive skin.   Any suggestions? :3

So I am always on the hunt for that "Miracle in a Bottle"  I went into Sephora to try a new foundation that I have not worn yet. (Which I have worn a lot) I am 42 with acne/oily skin.  I find a powder foundation works best, but love the way liquid looks instead.  I was matched to #33 in the 8hr mattifying compact in the Sephora line.  It looked good when she applied my makeup.  Just wondering why there is not much talk about this one.  I have the MUFE Duo and I would compare it to that. (or when wearing it I won't?)  I have yet to wear it, just curious if anyone that has used this likes or dislikes it. Also wear MUFE HD (stinks for oily skin, and yes I cleanse with my Clarisonic, use the Ole henriksen line and always use a primer, currently the oily free one from Smashbox) also use MUFE Duo compact. Never tried the mat velvet, don't know why. Aveda, and BM (matte formula) Also SA applied with brush, I have been using my BM Kabuki brush, shall I apply differently??

I am looking some retinol treatment now that my BDAY is coming up and I will be soon officially be in my late twenties.  UGH.  So far the  BE from Sephora gave me samples from REN and Philosophy's "Help Me".  I liked the REN better because I thought I felt improvement and the Help Me just doesn't feel as strong enough compared to the Ren. My skin is "normal" neither dry nor oily but I have been having some acne lately which is quite odd since I thought I was over that (stress, hormones?? IDK)  and price point isn't really an object (I use La Mer daily lol) plus 4x points next week YAY!   Thanks for your help and suggestions!!

I need help! I went in to a Sephora store and was matched up to the Make Up Forever Full Coverage Concealer in Dark Beige #12. It looked great inside the store but in natural light, it still seems a bit dark. I am using it to cover a small tattoo on my arm. The color is very close, but it makes my arm look like I have a bruise on it. I would like to order it in a shade lighter, but I am not sure if I should go with Golden Beige #10, or Beige #8. Will the golden beige #10 be too yellowish? Will the beige #8 be too light?  Suggestions?

I always knew that my skin is oily, but I think my skin is also dehydrated....because I rarely drink water.. heheh.   I did a search and a lot of people recommended drinking more water (duh), Clinique Moisture Surge, and Korres Greek Yogurt Moisturizing Face Cream. Is there anything else that you can recommend?

I made a post last week about need a solution to my lipstick application problems but nothing is working still. I took mostly everyones advice and it still isn't working. Every time I put on lipstick it still always settles into my lip lines. I prime my lips with the Bite Beauty Lip Primer and then I line my lips with a lip liner and apply my lipstick of choice and it still settles into my lip lines. I exfoliate my lips but it still doesn't help. Is there anything else I can do?

My skin has suddenly become very dry.  I'm using the anti-aging eye balm and moisturizer by Algenist and a sample of Geurlain's Lingerie foundation.  The foundation seems to be a huge improvement from what I was using but I am still struggling with the dry skin, especially around my eye area.    Any suggestions on a serum and eye cream? (I'm allergic to linalool. ) Also, would Nars' Sheer Glow foundation be better for my dry skin versus the Guerlain foundation that I am thinking about purchasing?   thank you for your help!

Hi, Im a male asian and i have really oily skin. Iv just moved to LA and the sun seems to be doing its damage to my face. Iv decided to get some sunscreen and tried a couple of brands laying around the house. Chanel and lancome? But these feel gross after awhile on my skin and get way too oily. Also the chanel ones seems to make my pores or white head even whiter by filling them up or something?   SO my question is what is the best sunscreen for oily skin?!   I JUST got this today:  http://www.sephora.com/oil-control-mattifier-spf-1 5-pa-P227801?skuId=1133727#BVRRWidgetID   AND I LOVE IT! but my friends are saying spf 15 is too weak...   is spf 15 not going to be strong enough for daily use? im not outside all day in the field. just running errands and such.   thanks!
