I'm new to the whole Sephora make-up thing/trend. I have always bought drugstore make-up because unfortunately, I don't have tons of money to put towards myself for make-up, however, I do have some, and I care about how I look. I would greatly appreciate suggestions on the best quality of make-up without having to go way out of my budget. I really need help, please? In need of: Foundation Foundation brush Powder Powder Brush Mascara Brow Pencil Concealer Brushes necessary for all of these /\
Im stuck between Kat Von D and MUFE Mat Velvet. Ok so ive tried both with the too faced hangover primer as recommended for my oily skin ( i was using stuff like smashboxs purple pore filling primer and mufe matte primer, and sephora employee told me these types were no good for my oily skin since my foundation was sliding off and she recommended more water based primers). I couldnt decided which to buy and what primer is best for them. I have oily skin on my tzone but sometimes dry on my chin. Some foundations on my tzone either slide off or get a little pathcy, i could never find anything that stays and look smooth out like how i first apply foundation. I want something that last hours, i go to school for 12 hours and would like something where i dont have to touch up alot. Any suggesting? i also use urban decay slick setting spray and setting powder after but only helps a little. I want to buy either foundation but i dont know which have better benefits? Kat Von D Pros : stayed on for 8 hours maybe more good coverage Cons: a little patchy on T-zone after a while a little dry on chin MUFE Mat-Velvet Pros: Stayed all lovely for 4 hours did not dry out chin Cons: Completely slid off of t-zone I got oily
My fiance and I ride motorcycles and lately I've noticed my ALWAYS oily skin becomes cakey and dry after a ride. We have full helmets on so I'm not getting too much wind. I normally use Make-Up Forever setting powder after my foundation and spray it with a setting spray as well. Any suggestions for a medium coverage foundation or powder that won't blow off while riding a motorcycle but won't cake in the sun either?
I work outside and for the summer I need a long wearing, medium coverage foundation for oily, acne prone skin. I need more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but cannot wear a heavy full coverage due to the humidity and sweating. I prefer liquid to powder but am open to all suggestions!
I'm 16. My dress is (most-likely going to be) mint and long, my hair will probably be up/curled. My skin is very, very pale but a couple days before I'll be using Tarte's Brazilliance self-tanner, so I'll still be fair but slightly bronzed. I have dark brown hair, freckles, and green eyes. I want some kind of contour, not really sure how extreme. Not sure what eyeshadow colors to use--I have Naked 2 and 3 but I still have a while to purchase others if necessary. Also not sure what my lip color should be (in coordination to my eyeshadow). Another concern is if I should go for natural looking falsies+eyeliner or skip both. Thank you!
I am extremely pale with cool undertones/pinkish undertones and I have brown freckles. My hair is very dark brown and my eyes are a dark green. I'm completely lost on what color prom dress to get. Half of the people tell me a light color will wash me out and half tell me a dark color will wash me out! I will be self-tanning a few days before prom (not orange! Don't worry, I'm using a green-based tanner. Did my research) so I'll still be fair but slightly tanner if that affects anything. So what's a makeup look that doesn't really depend on the dress color but good for SLIGHTLY tanned fair skin, dark hair, green eyes?
Any advice on makeup that won't leave me looking like a hot mess after labor? I looked like death after having my son and I hate my pics😞 any tips or favorite products that I'll help my makeup/look stay put?
I would appreciate a recommendation for a replacement product for a discontinued one: Guerlain's Terracotta Blush & Sun Sheer Bronzing Blush in "Sunlight 01." I live 50 miles from the nearest Sephora, so don't have ability to make color comparisons in person.
I'm mac nc 20 for reference. I have normal/ combo skin but more on normal side, just a bit of shine in T-zone, we don't have sephora store in my country so I am getting it online. Hope it will match my shade and go well with my skin type. Also for NARS creamy radiant concealer, should I go for Vanilla or Custard? And last question, what primer should I use for my normal/combo skin under this foundation? Thanks in advance!
I've used bare minerals powder makeup for 4 or 5 years now with no issues. Unfortunately I recently had some issues with a new skin care routine that caused breakouts so I had to get a topical treatment from my dermatologist that makes my skin dryer than usual. Now I have a problem whenever I apply bare minerals, my whole face looks even dryer and pieces of skin flake off. I use a primer, I always have, and I make sure to let my moisturizer set and my primer set before applying my makeup. Is there any other way to reduce dryness when using mineral makeup? Is there a better brush to use? Otherwise I'm probably going to switch to a liquid foundation until my skin issues have been dealt with. I'd love suggestions on a liquid foundation/brush combo that won't make my acne prone, sensitive, dry skin worse as well.
I really love the highlighter that comes in the Urban Decay Flushed palette and I'm starting to run low. I'm hoping someone knows of another highlighter that is a dupe (doesn't matter if it's drugstore, mid, or high end) to that highlighter so I don't have to buy the whole palette when I run out. Help me
Just thought I'd post this for anyone who may be curious to try her foundation.. I've wanted to try it since it came out, but I have absolutely no idea what shade I'm in. She's now offering free samples to order from her site! Each set (light, medium, dark) comes with 4 shades each, so I'm sure there will be no trouble finding a shade, I just hope the formula is nice
Recently I've discovered the joy that is powder foundation. My main question is which you prefer: Bare Minerals Original or Matte? Or if you don't like either, what's your favorite powder foundation? I've tried the BM Original and I like it but I'm not really a fan of it's sheen, however subtle it may be. I was considering the matte formulation instead to avoid this, but it doesn't have a single ingredient in common with the original. Also, I find my skin gets oily after just a few hours of wear of the original, which isn't really my favorite.
I am in search of a good BB cream suitable for medium complexion with slightly yellow undertone. Anyone of you has an experience of Burberry BB cream. How you like it and what is the undertone pink,yellow or neutral. Thanks
Hello Beauties - here is my question. I use Porefessional from Benefit to try and hide my pores. I find it helps but not 100%. Today I tried to use Hourglass Veil Primer and then the Benefit and then applied my YSL foundation with a Beauty Blender for the first time. It looks much better. Is it redundant to use the Benefit and the primer? Should I be skipping something or changing something to fill in the pores a bit better? Thank you all.
Hi Everyone! Has anyone had an issues with breakouts after using the Marc Jacobs Genius Gel foundation? I've been using this foundation for roughly three weeks, and I've noticed I'm breaking out on my cheeks and t-zone. This is the only makeup I've changed lately and have kept the same skin care routine. I'm sad if it is this foundation as I really like the look and feel, but the breakouts are really starting to make me self conscious. One another note, can anyone recommend a similar foundation in texture, coverage, etc? Thank you!
Hey, y'all. Very first post! So here's the deal - I usually set my foundation (NARS Sheer Glow in Tahoe) in order to set it and avoid shine throughout the day. I ran out of my pressed powder recently (bought before my Sephora obsession days!) and I was wondering what pressed powders y'all recommended, and in what color? Thank you!
I have dark under eye circles and also some acne scarring/dark pigmentation. I was looking for a full coverage concealer and foundation. I have normal/combination skin with a medium/light brown skin tone. I'm a beginner in makeup so any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.
I am a dancer and will be performing in a huge production this upcoming spring. I need a good water-based foundation that will cover my skin and stay in place. I was thinking about the Makeup Forever HD foundation but I'm not sure if it is water-based or enough coverage? Do you have any suggestions? (my skin is already a little dry)
All skin types! So I've made the decision that I would like to start freelancing (ordered my business cards and everything!) and am in the process of putting a kit together. The things that are stumping me though are primers, moisturizers, and toners. So I figured I could look to you lovely ladies and gents for help and recommendations! I need to know: Skin Type: Favorite Toner(s) Favorite Moisturizer(s) Favorite Primer(s) And of course, if there's something that you don't use, leave the space blank or replace it with something else (like a cleanser maybe?). Thanks guys! <3 <3
