My face is dry with red cheeks
 I'm 65, my face is dry with red cheeks and nose. Ideally I would like a tinted moisturizer as I do not like the feel of heavy make up or powder.

Highlighter+Job+Resume
hello, my name is Nicaury.  now, my questions are, I'm dark, but not VERY dark, more like a milk chocolate, caramel type of dark, my foundation shade is 310 in the fit me foundation, and my problem is that the highlighters I use are from drugstores and they always show up very light on my face, they fade as well and it has a lot of fall out. I do not have money to buy my own make up, I do not have a job and I have a huge dream and goal of having my own room. which highlighter would you recommend for someone that's the same skin tone as mine? how to I apply for a job at sephora? how to I create a resume even though I am not experienced at make up? the way I learned was by watching make up videos and teaching myself.   thank you for your time.

Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation
I'm thinking of taking the plunge and getting the Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation.  I live in a hot/humid climate so I need something that will hold up in the heat and my oily t-zone.  I also have redness on my cheeks I like to cover up.      Those of you who have it, do you like it?  Is it worth the $55 in your opinion.     Thank you!!

Foundation and Concealor for Indian / Olive skin tone
Please suggest base makeup products for me- I have a medium true olive undertone skin, The foundation finish that I am looking for is something that does not look yellow, but adds glow with medium to full coverage. Also my under eye area is quite tricky in the sense that it has red, purple and black undertones ! I have tried concealers with correctors but they look too ashy. I have a combination, sensitive skin type. I come here hoping some of your inputs will be valuable in my quest for my base makeup shopping! Thanks.

Q. Lancome Tent Idole Ultra vs what else should I try?
I went to Sephora for a Custom Makeover on Friday, specifically looking for a new foundation. I'm 42, very oily skin, large pores, fine lines under the eyes and some moderate forehead lines. I'm looking for a foundation that provides moderate coverage (lighter than medium coverage), has a good matte finish, will last all day without breaking up, won't settle into the creases, and can be applied with a beauty blender or sponge.   The associate used Lancome Teint Idole Ultra foundation on me. It did stay all day for sure, but it felt like such heavy coverage I was wearing a mask and the finish was way too dewy, even with an oil control primer and setting it with Laura Mercier translucent setting powder.    What other foundations should I try? I have been using Benefit Hello Flawless Powder -- I love how light it feels and it starts with moderate coverage, but as soon as I get oily it looks terrible in the forehead wrinkles, breaks up and slips off my face. Even with primer and setting spray.   Thanks for the advice!

How to stop foundation from breaking up? :/
I have combination skin: dry on my cheeks and very oily on my t-zone, especially because it is really humid where I live. My foundation stays put all day everywhere on my face, but on my nose, especially on the creases on the sides of my nostrils.   I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear lately and it controls my oil the best, and I have even tried mattifying primers with UD's Deslick setting spray. This all helps with the oiliness, but my foundation still breaks up/creases on the sides of my nose. I also set my foundation with the Laura Mercier setting powder, could I be using too much? How can I stop this from happening? :/   Also, any tricks for preventing your eyeglasses from rubbing off your foundation?

Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick - Packaging Issue
Anyone else finish a tube of the Vanish foundation and find that you could not twist it anymore to get to the last part of the product out? Considering how small the product is to the price point, I am frustrated that a good amount (maybe 10-15%) can't be accessed unless I dig it out. I can't help but wonder if my twister broke towards the end or if they really designed it that way. Here is a pic:

Q. LAURA MERCIER VS NARS !?
Which would you recommend? I have combination skin, I do not wear foundation everyday since I feel like it always is cakey/ clogging my face. It also looks very dry and flakey sometimes. I have tried so many different. (Laura Mercier, Tarte, Clinique, Makeup Forever, MAC, Low end foundations, Smashbox,etc) I cannot seem to find one I love. Ive heard good things about both NARS Luminous Weightless Foundation. Ive also heard good things about Laura Mercier Candleflow Foundation. My favorite thing to use right now is Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. My perfect color is BISQUE. Which foundation would you recommend? and If recommending Nars which color is closest to Bisque? I Believe the description for bisque is Light with pink/yellow undertones. (Although I think I am sort of more medium toned) but it matches! Thanks !!!

Q. Face Primer Help!
Previously I've been using the Porefessional primer with my cream moisturizer. But I've changed to a gel hydrating moisturizer (Clarins HydraQuench Gel Cream) and every time I use the primer afterwards it seems to combine and clump together into little balls of primer (kind of like those dead skin face peels). I even tried waiting until the moisturizer sets in my skin and dries to apply primer, but there will still be a little bit of clumping happening. I'm sure it's not because the primer is getting old, because I got it only a couple months ago and it also works fine with my Murad Oil Control Mattifier moisturizer.    Which types of primers should I be looking for that works well with gel moisturizers and doesn't clump?

44 Light Lock It Foundation
I had a color iq match done yesterday at a sephora store, and was matched with 44 light in Kat Von D's Lock It Foundation. Now, I'm at home, but I can't remember what my color iq number is & I need to know it. I was wondering if I'm able to get my iq number out from remembering the choice I got yesterday. If anyone could tell me it would help me out a lot, but if not I'm always happy to do it when I go back to the store.  Thanks!
