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?
THIS SHOULD SAY BLUSHED COPPER. OOPSY I just discovered the LE copper skin Perfector and some cream highlights available currently to rouges. I can't decide if I should bite the bullet on these or if they will complement my skin tone. Anyone order these? Or any thoughts on the LEFT skin perfector and new cream highlights? 😊😊 http://m.sephora.com/product/P395323 http://m.sephora.com/product/P395159
hi lovelies.so i thought we should discuss contouring techniques according to different face shapes.so it gets easier for us to determine what face shape are we .if any suggestions or how you ladies contour do post away .we can also understand what shape is actually a heart,oblong,pear,round etc...
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?
I tried asking my question on a bunch of other threads and it's not getting answered. I apologize in advance to anyone who's annoyed by all the threads on here that are on this subject. Can a mod tell me what Kevyn Aucoin concealer color I'd be? I'm 4Y02. I wear MUFE HD in 118, Pro Finish in 117, HD Concealer in 330, 340, 350, and Nars Creamy Concealer in Honey and Custard. I believe my color match in the new Nars foundation was either Punjab or Santa Fe but I think I'm closer to Deauville. Thanks
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
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.
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'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 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)
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.
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
I hate wearing foundation but I want to contour and highlight using a powder c/h kit. Can you still use this kit without foundation? I tried and I couldn't blend it out at all but maybe there is some trick using a primer or concealer??
I'm looking for a new bronzer. I am 45 and have light skin, light brown hair and hazel/green eyes. Ideally I'd like something that looks natural, but has some luminous qualities. I don't want glitter, but I don't want all matte because I'm not using this as a contour but as a true bronzer for the summer. My preference is powder for ease of application, but I would try a liquid or powder. Thank you!
I use the Milk Chocolate Bronzer and it works perfect for my very pale skin. Will I be able to highlight my whole face with Candlelight Glow or just my checks because of the pinky color? Yes, I know I can use them separately as well, but I am talking if I mix them together. Does anyone have both Milk Chocolate and Snow Bunny or do you really just need one or the other. I am not considering Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Powder because it is not oil free and I have skin that is on the oily side extremely prone to breakouts.
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

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.
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
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!
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!
I'm looking for my shade in the Lasting silk foundation! Their luminous silk in shade #3 was a very nice match for me. light, yellow toned color.. can someone help me find a shade? the findation.com is telling me #4 which is light sand. but some blogs are saying that #4 is a neutral - pink undertones Armani isn't the nicest place to ask for samples.. and they usually just pick out any dark color and give. so I want to make sure the sample of color is what I had in mind
soo i have been seeing the hype all over youtube on these new mufe skin equalizers....im leaning towards smoothing,nourishing,yellow,and orange( to correct my under eye a bit) what do you guys think...any thoughts...have you tried any of these?
I stopped by both Ulta and Sephora today looking for a tinted setting powder to use with my BB cream. Both stores recommended Benefit's Hello Flawless powder (although in differing shades - Petal and Ivory). I have pretty oily skin. I looked up the powder on Sephora.com and the description doesnt mention it in relation to any particular skin type. Would you recommend this for oiky skin? I also stopped by the Estee Lauder counter and they matched me to Double Wear Light in Intensity 2.0.
