Ok so i need help with foundation. I have tried multiple brands and multiple stores and can not find the right shade to match. I have tried Dillards, Belks, multiple drug stores and Sephora. At Sephora I have even done the Color IQ and nothing matches. Inside my foundation looks flawless, but as soon as I go outside my face is a completely different color than my neck. To deal with that I just bring my foundation all the way down my neck and blend it into my chest. However, I am tired of doing that and feel that there has to be a better way. Any tips, tricks or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for all your help!
Stila's lip glaze in cranberry is a really great brown red and I want moreeee! Anyone wanna share their favorite with me? That color is also referred to as brick red right? I'm still learning my lip color vocabulary guyz.
Well I'm not really stuck but I'm stuck on brown eye shadows. I love a smokey eye. So far I have the ladybird palette, naked 2palette (for some reason I don't find my self reaching for it .. Sadly. A waste) a smashbox trio (dark brown light brown and a cream white) and a Mac palette with 3 blendible light browns (Slowly building my palette) I love browns I guess. I'm not too into color and chunks of glitter but I do go to my naked 2 for gold colors. The black is so hard for me to blend in my naked 2 anyone else have this problem? However I would like a little color in my palette I don't like silver/grays though. I have olive skin, black ombré hair, and Dark Brown eyes. Any eyeshadow suggestions? As well as palettes? Silky eye shadows ? I've had my eye on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar & Anastasia's Cat Walk any one suggest Cat Walk? Thank you
Ohmygoodness! I went into Sephora last Sunday for some fragrance samples (to decide which perfume I want for Christmas) and I walked by the Bite display and saw this BEAUTY! I think the color "Bramble" is absolutely stunning, and looked wonderful on my skintone My dilemma: I do not think 0.09oz of product is a good deal at $24, and would like to find a cheaper alternative. I'm looking for this exact shade, doesn't matter if it's found in a pencil, lip gloss, or lipstick. Can anyone help? This is what the shade looks like
Has anyone already tried the Chocolate bar? I see it is already on the website but not in stock. Also no reviews just yet. Just wanted to know if anyone has tried or maybe wants to try it? How do Too Faced shadows compare to the other neutral pallets out there (i.e Naked 1, 2, or 3, Lorac pro, etc) I see that it is around the same price range as all the others. So what do you think?? http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?skuId=1578012
I have such oily skin and I have tried tons of foundations. I have recently switched to sephora makeup in general and I love it so far! I am currently trying Tarte Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation (powder looking) . It seems to be helping with my oily problem but I was wondering if there is anything better? I don't like to use a primer and I have tried the oil blotting sheets. I use a Lancôme face wash that is supposed to help as well. Any helpful tips? Thanks so much!
Hi All, I've always wanted to try my hand at contouring but I haven't yet because I don't believe I have the right products or techniques to do it well. I've looked at guides before but I can't really envision it just by reading about it, and in videos everyone seems to do it a bit differently so I'm not sure what to try. Any advice on techniques (in the form of video, or photo tutorials would be really be appreciated) or products that worked for you would be great!!!
Hi! I also this Urban Decay om Naked 2 from Sephora. However upon opening it at home, I noticed that the names of the palettes were not centered on the pans. I looked at reviews of fake Urban Decay 2 and this was always mentioned. Do you guys think this is fake or just a defect in manufacturing?
On a regular day I'm looking for a medium to full coverage foundarion. I've used some cover girl, maybelline fit me foundation but it's too watery and gets caught in my pores (even with a primer). My full coverage foundation is Kat Von Dee lock it but that's just too much for everyday wear. Anyone have any suggestions for a good everyday foundatwhat that wears well but doesn't feel like paint?
So I still haven't spent the $50 to get $20 off. Ive bought smaller items but for some reason I haven't been able to find the right item for this deal. I think it's comical because I don't seem to have a problem with spending money at sephora… I just want to feel like Im getting a deal on a really good item. (I don't want to waste it). Anyone else out there still have their $20 off $50?
Hi all, so I've been using makeup a long time, and I've always bought the less expensive items, NYX is probably the most luxurious makeup item I own but I want to change that and begin buying some higher end items to add to my already large collection. With that said what are the top five items I should look into picking up first? Thanks!
This is so odd. I went to track the package that is due to be delivered today and noticed that the Naked3 palette is showing on my order page as permanently out of stock. I don't believe it for a second...there's no way UD made such a limited run after the success of Naked and Naked2.
I have a couple of work holiday parties to go to and would love to try something new and dressed up while remaining professional. Does anyone have any ideas? I've done the pale eye with heavy winged liner and red lip a couple of times and want to switch it up (although I do love a red lip for the holidays!)
Hello all! I was just wondering what everyone's favorite part of their morning beauty routine is just for fun!! Whether it's playing around with all your different eyeshadow colors, putting on your blush for some rosy cheeks, swiping on your favorite lipstick, making your hair look flawless, or even that last spray of perfume. Personally, I just love picking out what lipstick/lipgloss combo I'm going to finish off my look with. I am a lipstick girl all the way!! What's your favorite??
I always wondered if it was necessary to wash face at night if all I put on is BB or CC cream. I always (try) to wash makeup at night but is BB cream makeup when it has all the other stuff in it to make it a 5-in-one or whatever? Advice? How about other types of creams if you don't wear makeup that day?
Over summer, I had my Color IQ done at Sephora and was matched to 1y06. This suggests that I have yellow undertones, six shades deep. I purchased a recommended foundation MUFE HD Mat Velvet Foundation in 140 (light-medium with yellow undertones). I use bb cream daily and save foundation for special events. I used some on my nose & chin today but I looked quite yellow. Especially since I had used it on my chin and it didn't match my neck (which is lighter & seems neutral). I wonder if it's because I was darker/tan in summer, but I blush pink (not coral at all). So... Am I warm, neutral, or cool? I'm thinking of returning my foundation for 130 or 135 which are more neutral/beige undertones. Any thoughts? It seems like many people assume east Asians to be all warm (since many of us are yellow). I would love your thoughts on finding the right foundation!
So I'm just starting out with makeup and don't have much of anything or can afford anything expensive (well sort of saving up with a job and all) and I'm really fond of the "No Makeup Look." I honestly don't know where to start or buy. I have some things that I hear are really good and light but not too sheer to cover up my blemishes. Here are things about my skin: I have an olive/ light tan skin tone (sand in stay-matte clinique, NC42 in Mac) I have combo oily skin but my nose gets so oily that makeup comes off in an hour. I have dark spots and acne around most of my jawline that I really want to get covered up. I was thinking of buying Tarte's BB primer or Benefits Oxygen Wow along with the naked basics but I'm afraid I don't have any primers that would work for me. I have the bare minerals primer along with the porefessional (which I love for minimizing pores) but those just dont seem to work with my skin. I'm not sure about a blush either. I also want to control the oil that swipes my makeup away in an hour (seriously most makeup comes off in an hour for me.) I'm just hoping to hear some suggestions or cheaper alternatives or maybe some of the products you go for during a "natural look" day.
With the VS Fashion Show going on tonight, I though it'd be appropriate to talk about bronzers (Clockwise starting with the bronzer with the pan peeking through.) - MAC Pro Long Wear Bronzing Powder in Nude on Board: Quite possibly my favorite product from MAC, this is used to warm up my complexion. I love how this has a subtle golden sheen and, like the name says, long wearing. Another plus is that it doesn't oxidize throughout the day. -Guerlain Terracotta Four Seasons Bronzer in 00 Nude: I can't talk about bronzers and not include Guerlain, as they're practically the pioneers of best bronzers. This one in particular is great for travel as the top left quadrant can be used as an all-over powder, the two opposing quadrants as bronzer, and the bottom right quadrant as a blush. -Dolce and Gabbana blush in Tan: A total misnomer if you ask me, as I can't see anyone wearing this as a blush. It's a cool-toned, matte taupe that is perfect for chiseling cheekbones or for defining the crease, as it truly mimics what a shadow should look. -Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium: Like the D&G, I strictly use this for contouring my cheekbones, due to it's taupey nature. This isn't quite as pigmented (nor as soft) as the D&G, thus, making it difficult to over-apply. Both are incredible contouring powders, and I love them both equally. -Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base: I finally broke down and purchased one after having used a new tester my SA kindly provided me with; it was always sold out at my counter. This is very lightweight and silicone-y in nature, so it can work over both liquid and powdered foundations. It's very difficult to go overboard with this product as it provides a soft warmth to the face. What products do you turn to for achieving that bronzed look?
So, just wondering if there's a trick to make it so I'm not all washed out in pictures. I'm not talking about the white face flash-back you get from SPF. I mean my blush and eye shadow never seems to show up in pictures. I promise I'm wearing blush and eyeshadow in this picture! I've seen a lot of you girls with gorgeous makeup in pictures, so I know it's possible! Anyone have any advice? I'm not using a flash or anything.
