Okay so, my foundation is ALWAYS cakey..everyday...Ive tried many different foundations (Dolce and gabbana, rimmel, revlon, L'Oreal) and it never goes right I never achieve a great finish that looks smooth and silky. Ive watched countless videos on methods of application (ive tried brush,sponge and even went through the deperate times of finger application methods) and yet I still cant achieve natural looking pretty skin. I also have dry flakes and redness around the nose, and inbetween eyebrows. I also have terrible eyebags that just wont go away! Ive tried everything .... Exfoliating, facial cleanser, moisturizer everyday day.........help!!
im getting married and my fiancé has rough dry skin. Our photographer can only photoshop his blemishes so much. Any recommendations for natural looking foundation that'll also cover redness? Thank you!
I have VERY sensitive eyes that always burn with 99% of the cleansers and makeup remover wipes out there. So far out of the ones I have tried, only the Tarte maracuja wipes are the only ones that work for me that don't burn my eyes or dry out my skin. All natural soap works as well, but it dries out my skin. I've tried things for sensitive eyes and skin, nothing works. I know that just makeup remover wipes isn't good enough, because it doesn't get rid of everything, so I would like to find a cleanser that won't sting or dry out my skin, but will clean the rest of what's left on my face. Any suggestions? For reference it doesn't get into my eye, it's the rubbing and formula around the eye, that irritates, usually. Things I have tried that I can remember (all did not work for me): (May not be the exact name of the product) first aid beauty wipes korres milk wipes yes to cucumber wipes vichy cream makeup remover Lancome cream makeup remover Lancome eye makep remover Sephora collection waterproof eye makeup remover Bioderma wipes Ponds wipes (blue packaging) First aid beauty cleanser
Hey guys, my question is regarding my dry t zone, my face is normally never dry except for when I put makeup on! I exfoliate every morning before I put my cream on which is the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate which I love! And then I follow up with either my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer or the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer because I don't like heavy products on my face. I used to use the Laura Mercier setting powder but I thought that was making my face dry out throughout the day, but since ive stopped using it I am still have the same issue. By the middle of the day my makeup looks dried out especially on my t zone area, and splotchy in areas on my cheeks. I even use the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray and this still happens!!
I am 35, and in the past few months my eye lids have been getting very dry & irritated. I've tried several all over eye creams workers have suggested, and they just seem to irritate them even more. Can anyone give me any advice on this? I've never experienced dry eyes like this.
I don't know what this is, but I just have dry, flaky skin just at the creases of my nose that are particularly visible when I wear makeup (mineral or liquid) and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried good moisturizers, but it doesn't seem to work and it's very isolated to just the nose crease. I do have dry skin in general, but a good moisturizer usually takes care of any dryness EXCEPT here. It's not so much "patches" of skin, it looks maybe more like pores that have flaked off or something. It's hard to describe. Maybe I will take a picture. Does anybody know what the heck I'm talking about? lol If so, what skin regiment would you recommend?
I've never had any sign of dry anything since I am typically oily skinned. But after using Smashbox primer, my nose is all flaky. Sephora doesn't have another green primer to use. So I just keep moisturizing at night to counter balance. I also wear a different primer under the Smashbox one just to protect my nose!
I do not have dry skin necessarily, I have more of combination skin, but I get severe dry patches, and flaking around my nose and on my forehead. I exfoliate a couple of times a week, and moisturize everyday, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions to what I could use to stop the dry spots?
For a few months now I've had really dry, flaky eyebrows and I have no clue what to do to fix it. I've tried dandruff shampoo on them, Murad exfoliating cleanser, nothing fixes it. Even if it goes away that day, the next day, it's back. They aren't itchy, just dry and flaky. Any advice on how to get it to go away is welcome! :-) Thanks!!

Hi Everyone! I need help with a skincare regimen that is going to be something quick for me to do, that is going to work well and takes care of my issues without breaking the bank. Is there such a thing? For the most part, I have dry skin but my nose, cheeks on either side of my nose and chin have a tendency to be reddish. I am a full time working mom of a 1st grade boy and don't have a lot of time to myself and I am in my 40s. Any help or advise is appreciated! Thanks! AliBarr
Hi Everyone! So, I have a wedding to attend this weekend. I recently went tanning a few times to get some color before. (I know it's not good) and it has caused my oil/combo skin to be a bit more dry in some places. Well here is why I need your help! I have been looking so dry on my cheeks and chin under my makeup. While my T-Zone is still on the oily side! What will help me ASAP. I started using, The Regimen Kit Combination/Oily, by Mario Badescu last night. I used a night cream moisturizer last night by this brand also called Seaweed Night Cream to help get moisture into my skin, it felt somewhat better. BUT when I put on my marc jacobs foundation and make up for ever smoothing primer this morning I felt like you could still see the dryness on my cheek and unevenness. & I am still unsure of a primer. I haven't found my HG! I have acne marks in my skin and indents on my cheeks/forehead that causes it not too look very smooth. I hope I can find some products that I will fall in love with! I need to look amazing for the wedding! Thank you in advance!
I am looking to try a new tinted moisturizer, specifically I'd love to try the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I currently wear the Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer in shade 01 (Alabaster it's called I think). I tried using the online ColorIQ to see what other products would be a match to this shade but the clinique tinted moisturizer wasn't one that I could select. Does anyone know what the comparable shade would be in the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer? Other suggestions for tinted moisturizer would be great too. I have very dry skin, so I prefer something very moisturizing and / or illuminating. Thanks.
Hello. I have very dry and sensitive skin. I normally use drugstore foundation like maybelline fit me, but I found that no matter what I use, my foundation always clings and cakes up on my face. I always cleanse, moisturize, and prime my face, but nothing seems to go on smoothly. Any suggestions for good foundations or things I can do? Thanks.
Okay, so I've had dry lips for about 6 months, I'm not even kidding and it is driving me crazy! I've tried every possible lip balm there is and nothing seems to be helping. I even went to the doctor to see if it was an allergy thing and all she said was to keep trying new products until one works. which was super helpful -.- I don't have super dry skin but I do get the often flaky dry patch every now and then. I do however suffer from eczema but i've never had it on my face. Im so desperate for any advice or recommendations because i'm so over spending heaps of money on stuff that doesn't work.
I decided to splurge on the NARS creamy concealer a couple months ago and slowly started to use the concealer not only under my eyes but my eyelids as well for the base. A couple weeks ago I found the inner corner of my eyelids drying out really badly and I just don't know a solution to fix this! Anyone else have a similar issue or any advice? All help will be appreciated!
I have dry skin, use 1 primer that makes my face too shiny.. also when i use powder to contour it looks very cakey.. what should i use as foundation and to contour with? should i not use foundation and contour at the same time? im new to make up, and want to learn.. thanks
Hi! I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on these products and your experiences with them. I need a new moisturizer. I have super dry, sensitive skin and was wondering about both of these balms. I have used Argan oil before as well as the Ceramidin cream. I love them both, but wanted something that lasts a little longer. If anyone can give me advice or share stories about these two, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Hi gals, I am in my late 20s and looking to invest in a good anti-aging face oil. I have dry, dehydrated skin and want to incorporate something in my routine that can fight skin stressors and maintain the health of the skin for a while. I was trying to choose between: Caudalie Premier Cru serum/oil, Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex and Sunday Riley Juno. Have you used any of the above oils, and could you share your experiences? Thanks!
I have super dry and sensitive skin! My face is most dry/peely in the areas where it really should be oily, like my nose and forehead/ t-zone. I have honestly tried everything. I have used Clinique products, the First Aid Beauty face wash/moisturizer, Fresh soy face cleanser and the youth lotus lotion. Ive tried the Josie Maran creamy oil moisturizer as well as tons of other stuff from sephora and the drug store. I use a cleansing water every morning and wash my face at night & moisturize 2x a day. I typically exfoliate once or twice a week with a powder like exfoliator from Boscia. My skin is still dry and peely around my nose forehead and chin all year long and I'm so frustrated. If anyone can recommend any products to help, that would be awesome. I can't really wear foundation or anything without it sticking to my dry patches and looking awful.
Hi there, I have been looking for a foundation online that will treat my dry skin but still give me flawless coverage. Every time I read about a product I am put off by their bad reviews, which one really is the best? Ally xxxx
I started using the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil about a week ago and ever since I have been experiencing visible texture problems all over my face - it looks bumpy. Has anyone experienced this too? Is there a purging phase?
