Pale Skin. Blush Color with Red Lipstick?
I have pale skin with yellow and red tones that are pretty much hidden when I wear foundation, what is the best color of blush to wear when wearing red lipstick? I have dark hair and eyes.

Meteorites for highlighter/ luminizer
I recently ran out of luminizer/ highlighter and was wondering if meteoirtes would work as a good replacement? If not what is a good suggestion? If so what color, I have very fair skin and freckles.

Blush for sensitive/acne prone skin
Hello makeup lovers!   I'm looking for a new blush, but I have some requirements: 1) must come with a brush, for touchups on the go 2) powder, since I use powder foundation 3) nice natural tone, prefer pink or peach, I have fair skin (I wear MUFE Mat Duo in shade 200, can't remember what I am in MAC, maybe NC20?)   I recently tried Clinique - while changing nothing else in my routine - and after 2 days had two large blemishes. I tend to be sensitive/break out on my upper cheeks just below the orbital bone (redness, small blemishes, clogged pores). I'm very careful about washing my brushes and with my skincare routine, so going to chalk this up to either blush (or maybe my Nars undereye concealer?).   Here's what I'm considering - what do you recommend? Any other brands? Lancome Blush Subtil (regular or shimmer) Shiseido Luminzing Satin Face Color Givenchy Le Prisme Blush ($30 is usually my limit, but willing to try this)   Thanks in advance!

Contouring for Light Skin?
I want to get into contouring and I have light skin with pink undertones. I've heard good things about Anastasia's Contour Kit and Smashbox's as well but I'm at a loss here.   What are your recommendations? Am I better off buying a highlighter and bronzer (I don't want orange!) or going for a kit. Do the kits work well for light skin? From reviews I've read I think kits tend to lean more towards medium complexions?   Let me know what you recommend as far as products go. I prefer matte powders.Thanks!

Luminizer help! My fav is MIA and I'm looking for replacement suggestions.
I used to use LORAC PERFECTLY LIT OIL-FREE LUMINIZING POWDER in Spotlight - it's sold out everywhere - and I've heard rumors it is being discontinued.  I realize Sephora no longer carries the line and Kohls now does, but again, I can't find my fav luminizer anywhere.  Ugh!!!!  I need some Sephora help!  Pretty please!  I have a medium colored skin tone (yellow undertones) so gold tones tend to look more natural than pink ones - need recommendations on what other options to try to replace my old fav product.  I have tried a bunch of things thus far and haven't had a lot of luck.  I don't want anything too glittery.... help... And thanks in advance!

Please suggest a powder foundation
Hi BT Buddies!! Here is my dilemma--I have used Jane Iredales pressed and loose minerals, I like both, but the pressed just doesnt give me enough covereage. I want a pressed foundation that gives medium/buildable coverage. I haven't tried BM Ready yet, but I did use the loose in Fairly Light. I recently tried the IT Cosmetics one and like it but it was too yellow so back it went. I need a fair with COOL undertones--no yellow. I have combination skin, tends to get oily T zone... I  welcome any suggestions! Thanks in advance!

Makeup for summer vacation/phasing out makeup
Hello All!   So a little about me.. I am 25, am more Oily-skinned than not, very very fair and never tan. usually have at least one or two blemishes - I dont think i can ever remember a time when i had clear skin.   I usually used Revlon colorstay on a day to day basis, and something like MUFE or MAC for special occasions.    I am headed to the wonderful Disney World in humid, muggy, HOT Orlando soon, and need some makeup help. I want something that provides some coverage for my uneven skin + blemishes, but nothing too heavy. I would prefer something I didnt have to touch up as often etc. can anybody offer a suggestion?   On a side-note... I would love to eventually phase out foundation all together. what would you recommend for doing that? I have horrible self esteem when it comes to my face and I feel like that is my main setback...   I look forward to reading your suggestions!

Help! I need summer makeup! Mine is melting off my face!
I have pretty good, mature skin.  Not too many blemishes or marks, and I'm quite fair with blue eyes.  I am having trouble finding a good summer face makeup that will cover my little bit of redness, and stay on my face!  With the humidity in New York everything is just melting off.  Even powder isn't really working.....I've been trying a tinted sunscreen with Bare Minerals over it, but the coverage isn't very good...Any ideas??

Sensitive red skin soaks up foundation
Help! For years the only foundation that has worked for me is Bare Minerals matte and either my skin is getting used to it or my pregnancy hormones are in overdrive since it's starting to make my pores look larger now and starting to cake after a few years of use.   I have red sensitive skin with acne scars and large pores. My skin tends to soak up my makeup throughout the day if it's NOT Bare Minerals and then I break out. I can usually use any powder on top. I always moisturize and use a primer beforehand.   What is a good foundation and primer that I can use for my skin? I've tried Nars, Urban Decay Naked, and MAC foundations but I always come back to Bare Minerals Matte. Any suggestions on primer, too?   Currently using: Bare Minerals Primer, Bare Minerals Matte Finish Foundation, Nars Powder Foudation for powder or Halo Hydrating Powder.

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?

Best liquid and powder foundation for oily skin?
Hi there, I need suggestions on liquid & powder foundations that have a matte finish, that are best for oily skin and don't cause breakouts.   More about my skin: I have yellow undertones, dark circles underneath my eyes (not extremely dark), I also have a few blemishes on my skin, & throughout the day I mainly get oily on my tzone.   So far I have tried Tarte (not a fan of the powder) and Kat Von Ds Lock it liquid foundations, which so far I like but I like to try new things. I don't use primer, I have tried the Benefit flawless, and the smashbox primer which I didn't like. I felt like it made my skin more oily. So if you have suggestions on primers or concealer for my dark circles that'd be great !!

Product Help Please!
I'm looking for a product to replace my Marc Jacobs Close-Up (302) Lightshow Luminizing Powder. I bought one near the end of last year and have been trying so hard to make it last but I'd rather just find something else to use when this is over that I can always find. Multiple products that are similar in each shade would be fine, but I prefer palettes. Or if you have any suggestions for different colour highlighters, etc!

Best foundation for me for my wedding day?
I am getting married in april and want a good quality foundation to wear that will last all day and will still look good in pictures. I want a foundation that is NOT a powder. I tend to have somewhat oily skin and have blemishes that I need covered. I also have somewhat sensitive skin. I also need it to be somewhat reasonably priced. I cannot spend more than $45 on it. I would LOVE it if you could give me multiple examples. Please help!

Guerlain Meteorite + talc
So tomorrow, I was going to buy Lingerie de Peau & try the Meteorite in stores to see if I like them enough to buy them. BUT, I think I took for granted that because this is such a high end product, it did not contain talc. But it does! I am shocked. I'm not paying 60+$ for some pretty pearls made of talc.    Is this just me or what? I never had problem with talk, and I wouldn't mind it too much if it was a 25$ powder, but for the price I'm paying, it better be talc free. Is is just me or if sometimes, luxury brands are a little behind in terms of ingredients and all?   What are your thoughts?
