I have oily skin, but I am fond of the dewy glowing look! Not the oily shining look! I want to know exactly how I can create this look? I know I need to do strong oil control at skin care and base, so that I can use a dewy/glowy foundation. But I see on Korean girls, even before makeup their skin is SUPER glowing. How can I get that??? Please don't say the answer is highlight because their whole face is glowing! not only highlight points! And highlight is not necessarily glowing too! The main point is their face is glowy and dewy but not oily shine. I should look for a mattifying strong oil control primer and a glowing foundation. Any suggestion on this??? I will find a photo, I wasn't able to attach a photo here
I see this product isn't on this site (yet?) but was wondering If anyone has tried it? Thoughts? I usually use smashbox photo finish hydrating primer but was wondering about this one since it's new and supposedly offers 24H hydration.
I'm under the impression that natural hair brushes work better for powder products and synthetics for liquid. I've been eyeing the RT blush brush? or the one that is shaped like a cone for bronzer application but I know that all RT brushes are made of synthetic hairs. Is my general rule concept mistaken or is it the quality of the brush that matters more?
Hello Ladies of BT! I just bought myself a couple Becca products and when I was shopping around, I saw The One Perfecting Brush. I didn't buy it at the time. Now I have been flipping the internet and blogospheres for reviews because it seems like such an excellent concept. Especially for people who are traveling or for people who are in a hurry (busy mommy like me). Has any of you ladies used this brush? I would appreciate your reviews, good or bad! Thanks!
I love the YSL Touche Eclat foundation but I can't find the right color. I've tried Beige 10 (its to light) and Beige Dore 10 (slightly to dark that its noticeable even when well blended). Any suggestions? My best match is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 1.0. A lot of paler are people are wearing B30? Is it lighter than the ones I mentioned?
The Kat Von D Foundation only lists descriptions from the original shades, not the new crop. I have fair skin with yellow undertones, and the Light 45 is slightly too pale. On the yellow spectrum, which color is next? I've compared and peered and sampled, and I'm flummoxed.
I am debating on switching my makeup routine if there is makeup more suitable for my skin type. Throughout the day I get an oily t-zone, and I have acne prone skin (majority of it on my chin and around my mouth area). I prime with Cover FX mattifying primer (doesn't seem to do its justice for me), I use Kat Von D lock-it tattoo foundation, which I LOVE the coverage with that due to my acne and lots of hyper-pigmentation. I then use **bleep** full cover concealer to cover any imperfections, I just use a revlon pressed powder, rimmel bronzer and revlon blush. I then use Urban Decays de-slick setting spray. Could anyone make an suggestions on products I need to swap out, or entirely new makeup routine that is more suitable for acne. Thank you!
Is it good? I just bought the nars foundation in Stromboli. It's a good match and I like it, but I want something for lighter days. Does anyone know what color in the tinted moisturizer would be close to stromboli
I'm looking to lighten up my makeup bag and save time. I've always hated having to put on a liquid, then a concealer, and then powder, and so on so I'm looking for an all-in-one foundation that will even me out and cover up some redness that I have. I'm guessing that's what medium or full coverage foundations are for? Could really use some help on this!
I use a makeup sponge to blend my under-eye concealer. This may seem like a silly question, but does it matter whether you wet the sponge with warm or cold water? Not only for better blending but also making the sponge itself last longer.
This is also helpful for anyone with yellow or olive undertones. I found a really great (long) article with photo's, examples. The reason why I decided to post the link is to help others as I do struggle who with the finding the best foundation match. I always have to mix two to three shades to get a decent match. I don't like using a color correcting mixing medium, it seems to alters the foundation formula. Sorry, had to remove link, trying to be as specific as possible to direct you to the article. There are other articles but look for the link that begins with musicalhouses otherwise it won't be the right one.

I am seriously considering on purchasing this product but whether it works well on oil skin is the make or break question for me. Also, what primers will go well with this product considering I have very oily skin (:
I'm looking to throw all my old makeup away that my mom gave me because she didn't really use it. I want to get all new makeup and start over fresh. So should my makeup be all the same brand for best results?
So I had this Olay click pen, which I love because I could just throw it in my purse for touch ups. I liked that it treated my eyes as well. Now what would be a similar product at Sephora? I don't want just a regular concealer or illuminator in a click pen, I want something that treats and moisturise. Thanks!
I am so excited to try this! It's available on Dior's site now, any idea when we might see it on Sephora? "Inspired by the professional illuminating techniques and expertise of its makeup artists, Dior invents Diorskin Star, its 1st brightening foundation: a weightless fluid capable of recreating the spectacular and perfecting light of Dior's studios. - The complexion is instantly more luminous and visibly more even. A new generation of hollow silica beads captures and diffuses light in a correcting halo with no shine. At the same time, colour-filter pigments neutralize colour imbalances to recreate the perfect light. - The complexion is clarified with a purer, more dazzling and long-lasting light. Anti-"light-trap" skincare ingredients help reduce the appearance of dark areas, pigment spots and redness."
I've been scouring the Internet, but only product pictures and gloss swatches come up. Are they super new? Anyway, I'm looking for a neutral kind of no-blush blush that adds a bit of flush and definition without much color and it seems like a couple of them could fit the bill. Or, if anyone can recommend a different blush that would accomplish that, that would be cool, too. Here's the product I'm talking about... http://www.sephora.com/blush-volupte-heart-of-ligh t-powder-blush-P388641?skuId=1625524
I know alot of you guys love the brand. They have a good selection on HauteLook right now. I've never used them before. Please share any insight you have! The blushes look pretty. What's the quality like? Happy Shopping!
So school is soon approaching and I am going to be starting my masters degree in Epidemiology (excited yet scared)! Anyways, I am certain that I am going to be very busy and will only be able to go to the gym between class breaks or before class starts. Other than that, I will be researching, with clients, or TAing. My question is, do you or should you go to the gym with makeup on? If you do, what do you do with your face afterwards? Obviously I do not want to reapply my makeup on a sweaty face and if I shower, I would have to start my whole skincare regime again followed by makeup (which takes quite a long time). In addition, I would be in a male locker room and could you imagine what those "gym jocks" would think if they saw me doing my routine ... oh please (I hate when people judge). Any tips, advice or suggestion would be great to hear! Definitely let me know, thank you so much in advance! Michael, xo
I have oily, acne prone skin that is super light. I have tried Bobbi Brown's foundation, Kat Von D, & Benefit foundations, all were in the lightest shade and still seemed too dark for my skin. I am looking for a full coverage, matte foundation that has enough shades that the lightest one would be able to work for a very fair person. Does any one have any suggestions? Also what is a good foundation brush to use that packs a lot of coverage?
