Q. KA Sensual Skin Enhancer- how do you use it?
I've recently just purhcased the Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer about two weeks ago and am still working with it. I wanna know if you use it as a foundation or concealer, and how you apply it so I can get more ideas and figure out what products/brushes I should use with it. I'm particularly interested in using it as a foundation, but it's a bit tricky. Let me know!

Q. Urban Decay B6 Complexion Prep Spray
Hello beauty gurus!   I have oily skin in my Tzone area (it doesn't look oily, but makeup slides off within minutes no matter what I do), and I've been looking at the UD B6 complexion prep spray. Will this hold makeup on? Will it prevent makeup from caking up? I've read reviews and just want to be sure about it. The rest of my skin is fairly normal-- only worried about my nose and between my brows. Thanks!

Q. What is a good bronzer that can also be used for contour?
Whenever I see how people do a natural contour with bronzer, I think how nicely it defines their facial structure and how naturally healthy it makes their skin look, the problem is that I don't know what would be a good color match in terms of bronzer for me that could also be used for just a slight contour (nothing major, just carving out cheekbones slightly) With that said:   Does anyone know any good bronzer they have used that can also use for contouring? Also for light medium skin tones? If skin type is also a question of what bronzer would be good to use, I have an oily skin type.

Q. Best foundation to use
Hello!   I have always used drugstore foundations but I am wanting to start exploring higher end foundations.   Background: I am very fair and have a yellow undertone. My favourite drugstore foundation is the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation. I love looking matte, but I always use a powder anyways so its necessary that the foundation be a super matte finish. Also, I prefer medium-full coverage.   I have three foundations mind: 1. Makeup Forever Ultra HD 2. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation 3. Cover FX Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation   what do you guys recommend?! thank you!

Q. Replacement for MUFE Smoothing Primer
I received a sample of MUFE Step 1 Smoothing Primer and I love the way it smoothes out my large pores and fine lines. Unfortunately, I think it is making me break out. I have combination acne-prone/sensitive skin that can get a little oily in my humid VA climate. I was wondering if any one knew of a similar product that can reduce the look of my pore? I have tried MUFE mattifying primer, BM Prime Time, Smashbox Photo Ready, and Too Faced Primed and Poreless and none of these did it for me. Thanks for your help!

Q. foundation cakey
I have a major issue with foundation/concealer.   When I wear it- I wear too little - you can see all the marks, my skin looks the same with less redness   When I wear too much- I look good from far, but at arms length you can see how cakey it is, when I smile you see wrinkles and dry patches.     I went to Sephora and Mac about this, they tried the makeup on me. I seriously looked ridiculous but everyone around me said that was the right amount. I just don't get it- when I talked you could see my face lines bc of the amount they put on me.   I just don't get it. The artists themselves look amazing. Mac ones in particular- always look like they are wearing no foundation or concealer and their skin is naturally that even and flawless. It looks moisturized well and no redness.  But when that same person puts the makeup on me- ick. I just don't get why it looks that way on me, and how they all fail to see how horrible it looks on me.Same with coloring- the foundation is too light or too dark, yet they think it's fine. Their foundation color is perfect to the tee.   The other thing is, my face has some old blemish marks, one pimple, and some redness, the usual. It doesn't have that much in terms of breakouts yet my flaws are so evident on my face - yet not on anyone elses, some have more than mine.   What gives?!
