Can you be taught how to contour in a Sephora store?
I am dying to know how to contour and I can't just follow a video because when I do I end up looking like a spray tan gone way wrong. Can or if I go into Sephora can they tell me/teach me how to do it? If so how much would it cost.

What shade of MAC pro long wear concealer?
Hello! I want to purchase the MAC pro long wear concealer but have never bought a MAC product (this will be my first and I'm so excited!) so I don't know what shade to buy. I'm currently using the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer in the shade Medium1 Custard. I was thinking MAC NC20 or NC30 matched the best to that. Im purchasing online and not in-store so I want to make sure I get the best match. Any help would be appreciated!

foundation colour match! (and comparison b/t giorgio armani vs. YSL)
Hi, I am looking for a new foundation to try. I have dry and very sensitive skin   I am currently using benefits hello flawless oxygen wow, and the colour is "I'm plush and precious, petal".   and I am thinking to get one of those foundations from YSL or Giorgio Armani.   I tried YSL's LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating, shade 30  but I think it kinda dries out my skin but I liked the finish look.   Sephora that located near my area does not carry Giorgio Armani so that I could not try but I have heard so many people complimenting the product.   So I'd like to get some recommendation of those foundations or others that would work for me as well as the shade   Thanks.

How can I get the milky white complexion that I see many women sport?
      I am trying to find out how I may attain the "milky white complexion that many women sport. Is there a cream that I can use to get that complexion. I have heard the term BB cream being mentionned, so I went out to purchase it and it didn't work at all. In addition, apparently many of these women rub on their body too.

Winter foundation for combination skin?
My skin is normally very oily, but in these frigid winter months the T-Zone of my face (under eyes, cheeks, nose, chin, between brows) have been super dry and flaky.. but yet oily at the same time. These areas have not been loving any of my foundations (Estee Lauder Doubler Wear, Makeup Forever Matte Velvet). Within 5 minutes of putting them on, the foundation in these areas looks blotchy and speckled and cracked and gross. I have been moisturizing religiously and gently exfoliating with a wash cloth. I make sure to wait at least 10 minutes after moisturizing to put on my primer (that I ALWAYS makes sure has the same base as my foundation whether that be silicone, oil, or water based). I use my beauty blender to apply the foundation to make sure there is no microexfoliation. So, PLEASE, someone help me out here. Which foundation, or formula of foundation, would be my best best for actually staying on my face???! Despite the dryness on my cheeks, I still have large pores and my skin gets oily somewhat quickly (even the dry areas have a nice coating of grease by the end of the day) Any suggestions?

Luminous Product for Pale Skin
I love a luminous look, but I feel like because I'm pale (really pale) nothing is enough of a contrast to actually make my skin look luminous.  Anyone have any suggestions of foundations, powder, or any other product that would achieve this look?  For reference, I have tried and do not care for the following as it just seems to not show up on my skin: Benfit Watt's Up, Nars Albatross, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, Bare Minerals Illuminating Mineral Veil.  I'd like an all over glow, so perhaps a luminizing foundation (eyeing the Nars one), but am also interested in any finishing powders or highlighting creams/sticks to apply to my cheekbones.

I'm in the search of a full/medium coverage foundation!

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, Dupe
Becca On the left, Josie Maran on the right (thumb side) Just discovered a great dupe for the Opal shade....I could barely justify buying the small Becca because for 19$ you only get .68 Fl Oz. I really wanted it to mix in with a foundation and because of that i knew i would go through quite a bit of product, so then it was even harder to justify! But i went and got it anyways and it really is great like everyone says. BUT i also got this Josie Maran whipped Argan Oil Illuminizing body butter in golden opal radiance, so for the small size of that you get 2 Fl. Oz., more than double the amount for 16$ on Amazon. The colors look a little different before blending but on the skin the effect is almost identical. The Josie Maran has argan oil and all of her products are cruelty free, i'm not sure of any skin benefits in the Becca or if those products are cruelty free?
