Cleaning Brushes
I use a spray brush cleanser on my brushes once a week. I have noticed that I need to clean my foundation and concealer brushes more frequently for optimal use. Should I be cleaning all my brushes everyday? I've heard of some people using oils and conditioners and was thinking of just leaving my bushes in a container filled with a mixture of water and shampoo after application while I am at work then removing them when I get home and spritzing them with hair oil (maybe once a week) then air drying them till morning. Is this a good idea? I would still clean them with the brush cleanser once a week. Do you think hair oil should be lightly spritzed after each shampoo/water soak?

Just concealer // no foundation?
Hi, I'm about to go into high school next year, and never really wear make up. I just realized how expensive makeup is, and didn't really want to purchase both concealer and foundation. I also don't want to be wearing so much because I feel like that would be heavy. I don't really have a lot of acne, just some spots I'd like to cover. So can I just wear concealer on problem spots and not need foundation?   Thanks!

Becca "Champagne Pop"
If I have the Rose Gold highlighter from Becca or even NARS Orgasm illuminator, would I really need Champagne Pop? I feel like they're all a bit similar but I could be wrong. I think Champagne Pop is gorgeous but dishing out another $38 for it makes me sad. LOL.

No makeup. Actually.
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.   None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).   This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.   Anyone else brave enough?

SPF causing whitecast in photographs
Anyone else find this super annoying? I have a bunch of foundations in my current collection that I love - both drugstore and some high end that I've tried that all seem to have SPF in it. Now during the day when I'm just going to work or whatever obviously I don't mind, I wear moisturizer with SPF on a daily basis anyways. But my foundations I prefer to wear on a night out (due to coverage, flawless-ness, etc..) always seem to have SPF as well. I'm alright pretty white as it is lol so it's pretty frustrating. I kind of wish they didn't include it in foundation so that if you feel you need it, you could just add a moisturizer underneath.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a setting powder with some lasting power?

Need a new blush!
Okay, this is the second post I've started in the last ten minutes.. LOL. Girls, I'm in need a new blush- not right now, but for Christmas. (Yes, I'm an early shopper!) I have the bareMinerals blush(almost out of it!) and loved it, and I once got a sample of the Tarte blush and loved it also.. Right now I'm using the Josie Maran coconut water cheek gelee- I got it a few weeks ago when I went to Sephora, (I just got the $13 travel size one!) to hold me over till I could get a better blush for Christmas. I've never tried the JM cheek gelee until I bought it, and its okay. I don't think I'll be getting it again after its gone.. The good thing is it does last all day long- because whenever I touch my cheek it feels as if someone put ear wax all over! LOL! I don't put too much on, but I hate touching my face and feeling that sticky-ness!  I am really interested in the Tarte 24 Amazonian clay blush, bareMinerals blush, or the Clinque cheek pop.  I prefer blushes to be in a compact, like the tarte one, but then again I don't mind the bareMinerals blush packaging. Please help me!  Thank you! XOXOXO PS. Whatever blush I choose in the end I will need a shade also-- if anyone can suggest a blush shade with the blush brand they recommend that'd be greatly appreciated! I have red hair, a light(ish) complexion, and brown eyes(don't know if that helps or not!)  Thanks again! Oh and I also have freckles... Lol.

I'm getting married in October...
And I need THE PERFECT foundation for the wedding. I've been using Makeup Forever with Kat Von D Lock it powder on top. Even with both they cover my blemishes and acne scars.  The wedding is outside so I'll need something that isn't going to sweat off. I have combination oily skin and it's real sensitive. I literally only change my foundation brand once a year or else my skin goes crazy.  I've tried E.L.F Mineral powder, that didn't last. Cover girl Whipped foundation, only once that ever lasted and gave full coverage but it's been discontinued, and my face was always breaking out because of how heavy it was on my pores.   I just need something that will last from 9am-midnight, won't make me look washed out in pictures and will give a good full coverage.

Makeup Forever HD foundation / now Ultra HD
I'm not sure if anyone knows but MUFE is revamping this formula. im kind of sad, since i do like the original. And its a really good match :/   if you search for thestyleandbeautydoctor she has a review up and theres a chart for the new shades. Mine is  very low so il be waiting  til i run out and the new one is available to try. My shade is 117 which is now Y225. I guess il keep my bottle to compare the color as well.   40 shades anyone else/ thoughts?   I also read on another blog: "Has the formula being changed?"   -As Dany said - they "did not change the formula, but added new ingredients to make it better". *  hyaluronic acid  (to bind moisture to the skin) * amino acid coated pigments (to stabilize pigment) *  mineral mica (to create radiance)

Foundation Creases
When I wear my medium-coverage foundation it settles into the expression lines around my nose/mouth and on my forehead, and makes it look as though I have very wrinkly, aging skin. I do not actually have age wrinkles... How do I prevent the creasing?   FYI, I do moisturize and use primer before applying the foundation. Foundation is then applied with a foundation brush and finished with a light setting powder.

Quick Question Tarte 12 HR Primer
Hi all. I just got the full size Tarte 12 Hr BB Primer because I had a sample and loved it. Yesterday, I had a couple extra spots to cover and put a bit of concealer on top of it, but it was a little bit cakey when I did. (It wasn't that bad, but I am looking for different options). I was wondering if anyone had tried this with concealer underneath instead of on top. I know it's supposed to be a primer and moisturizer in one, so usually that wouldn't be the best idea, but I do still put a light layer of additional moisture on before this and I think it just might work. Hopefully, my skin will clear up and this won't be a problem for too long! lol. (Very specific question, I know.)

Best primer for large pores, dry skin?
Hi, I have been searching for a primer that is both hydrating enough and not necessarily mattifying as my cheek area has a lot of large pores but is also dry. My t-zone area also has large pores and occasionally gets oily, but I am more on the dry side of combination skin.   Is there a really good primer that someone can recommend that will both help to blur out the large pores but will not be too drying? I've tried Too Faced Primed & Poreless but I am not too impressed.
