What brand and/or product would you recommend for an everyday face foundation or bb cream. I will be starting Nursing school in the fall and want to have a quick routine so that I look presentable. I have acne and scarring but hope that they clear up with the Retin A by the time I start school. I want something that is about medium coverage.? I can never stand light coverage. Also, maybe long-ish wearing because of my oily skin. I have no idea what to use. i am so used to full coverage foundations.
Hello I'm a teenager; my face is very dry and has some bad acne spots. I have very fair skin so I like to cover my face to reduce redness and cover acne marks. Any good products that I should look into? I've tried Makeup Forever (too heavy) and Stilla CC Cream (not my color). Any help please?
We are going on vacay soon so I decided it would probably be smart for me to get some waterproof mascara. I wanted to get it from Ulta so I could redeem some points for a few dollars off. I decided on Tarte's Lights, Camera, Splashes. It's not as dynamic as the Guerlain I've been using, but it's still good. I would've gotten the waterproof Guerlain, but no one carries it and I don't have time to order it. ANYWAY- I have a purple streak in my hair and I've been wanting to try a purple lipstick (or gloss) to accent it. So I tried a few at Ulta. I was excited about UD's new glosses. But I tried a sample I got from Ipsy and the color payout wasn't that great. Plus it's GLOSS. Not my favorite. So on a bit of a whim, I purchased Too Faced's Melted Villain. It's dark but it's definitely purple. It's going to take some getting used to. But I pretty much feel that way every time I get a new shade of lipstick. So hopefully I will be rocking this one (out of the house) soon. Does anyone have any tips on wearing this shade? I'm currently wearing it with Stila's kitten eye shadow with Bobbi Brown's Cement (a glitter shade) on top. I really like it. Is it too much to wear it with a purple shirt? I like the combination, but not everyone is as into Matchy-Matchy as I am. What colors of clothing would you wear with it? TIA
Hi. I am having the worst time trying to pick my next foundation purchase. My number one requirement is that it is long lasting, but additional criteria includes light weight and/or medium- light buildable coverage, not dewy- I need something natural or matte. I have true combo skin, but I don't want something that is too drying. I found estee lauder double wear light to be too heavy, and a bit drying for reference. For the record, I did look up reviews (which every single one has a lot of good and then several terrible ones) and I searched, but all the searches that came up for long lasting also wanted full coverage and/or needed to cover a lot. I have a tiny bit of hyperpigmentation on my upper cheeks, but aside from that, I don't need anything too heavy. I would appreciate it so much if I could get some of your opinions, since I value the opinions of the girls on BT more than the average review- you ladies know what you are talking about! (Other info: I have tried Tarte- too heavy, cakey, Teint Idole is okay but I want to try something else. Also, I hate primers and have never tried one that works well under foundation for me. I've tried several and most of them suck all the oil out of my face and make my skin look really dry, while others caked up underneath and/or made my foundation roll.) Oh, also, I don't care if the suggestion is Sephora brand or something else. Sorry so long, just trying to get all the details in. Thank you so much!
I have pretty normal skin with a few dry patches around my nose and in the crease of my chin. I'm looking for a good primer that will help my makeup stay on longer especially when i'm outside all day in the heat. I have tried porefessional but it made me breakout. & I'm currently using NARS luminous weightless for my foundation. Any suggestions?
What is the best liquid bronzer? I have not tried any yet but I know there are a few to choose from, I have been eyeing the Armani Liquid Summer but I'm not sure if I should spend the money if there's something better.
I recently purchased my first matte palette - Too Faced Natural Matte. I am enjoying it so much that I would like to try more mattes but with some color this time, not just browns/greys/taupes. I'd like to see some pinks, purples, greens, etc. I haven't really been able to find a palette of more colorful mattes though. Any ideas?
Can you suggest a blush? I have the Clinique cheek pop in melon which I love but I want another option for summer. Ginger pop is too red. Nude pop doesn't show on me. Peach pop is too pink. i tried the hourglass dim infusion which was too orange. i have NARS orgasm in the multiple but it's too shimmery. can you please suggest a warm blush for me?
I am currently 8 months pregnant and I would love to hear from all of you, expecting mom's! Tell me your makeup routine,skincare during pregnancy and how much it has changed. I have noticed since,I have been pregnant that my skin has been a bit more dry and sensitive. so,I had to change how much I lotion my face and exfoliate. my makeup routine consists of me, trying to hide how tired I look and looking less pale. I usually don't mind how,pale I am but,pregnancy has made me pretty ghostly LOL.
Or at least an inexpensive version of Buxom's full-bodied Lip Stick (not gloss/polish) in the shade Dolly, the one that came out with that cute new limited edition tube. http://www.sephora.com/love-dolly-limited-edition- full-bodied-lipstick-P386808
Yes, I know this question has been asked before, however, I haven't really seen anyone who can answer my specific questions about the two blushes. Looking at swatches and reviews online don't help, they're all so different and there are so many varying opinions! I am looking to purchase either one of these blushes (not lip gloss), but am not sure which one. So! I'd like to know, primarily, which one is pinker. I know both lean pinky-peach but if one has a more pink tone I definitely would go to that one. Second, which one's formula is better (I don't mind glitter at all, I love it!) Third, which one would be better suited to very pale skin. THANKS!!
Hey everyone. So I wear Make Up Forever's HD Foundation in the color 110. I feel I am a little to dark for this color so I mix it in with my Mac Pro Longwear NC 20. I need advice for getting a foundation color in Tarte as well as Cover FX.
Hi Everyone, I'm looking for a foundation primer. I've been looking at Make Up For Ever, Too Faced, or Laura Mercier. I've heard that these brands make really good primers. What do you guys recommend? Thanks in advance!
Soooo, i have blue veins that are very visible under my eyes. They don't really disappear with concealer. Just partially. I do not colour correct as i don't know how. Would i use a colour corrector and then apply my normal skin-tone matching concealer? Help please!
hi! so i've recently stopped wearing foundation and am trying to start wearing concealer only. i only have a few pimples and a small facial scar that i like to cover up, but i feel like whenever i use concealer on its own, its just very noticeable and stands out. i have many different concealers, all in the right colors, but i just feel like whenever i just wear concealer it is obvious that i am trying to hide something. so, i've started wearing bb cream to kinda camouflage the concealer in with my skin, but i just can't find a good one. i really need it to last all day and provide light/medium coverage without looking like i have makeup on! please let me know any suggestions/advice on the concealer problem / any recs on bb cream.
I recently splurged on myself and gave myself a custom makeover where I fell in love with the foundation used...Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation in the color Beige Dore 10. I've had the product for a few months and was worried about it running out, so I went re-order online and that color option wasn't even there. I went to my local Sephora and they had a tester for that color but there were no actual foundations that I could buy. When I asked, the SA tried to find it online and in the back but couldn't explain why it wasn't in the system or when it would be back. I just want to know what happened and when can I expect that particular color to be available to purchase. Also, what would be good matches for that color. (I tried using the Color IQ match with the YSL Beige Dore 10, and that color didn't come up as an option for me to match colors with other products.) If anyone could help or point me in the right direction to just clarify what happened, I would love that.
