Foundation help needed!
Hey all. So I have a issue I need help with. I recently bought the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. I love the coverage and lightweight feel of it, but here are my issues with it, when I got hot, and started to sweat a bit and get oily a bit, it all slid right off my face (I used primer and setting spray), and the color range sucks, they run way to dark. So my question is, does anyone know of any foundations that are amazing coverage, sweat proof, transfer proof (if possible), humidity proof, and water proof? Does not have to be from sephora, it can be any brand y'all think would work. I have neutral undertones (not overly pink, or yellow) and have combination/oily skin. Thank you.

SOS please help me with my useless eyelashes!
Basically my eyelashes are driving me round the bend! They are average length, if not a bit short, very straight and quite thick. I am finding it SO difficult to find a decent mascara for my eyelashes recently, applying mascara to them is extremely difficult as they clump SO easily and go all weird looking. I'm fed up of having to keep removing my mascara and reapplying a billion times until it looks vaguely acceptable! Does anyone have any help? It will be greatly appreciated! xxx

Q. Favorite brushes and tools?
I have been in the process of revamping my entire beauty and skincare routine because I was way overdue for an overhaul...While I have replaced my three most commonly used brushes, for the rest, this is still one of the "categories" I am still on the fence about. Call me crazy but I feel that if you use something every day regardless of what kind of look you are going for for that day the way we might use a foundation brush or blush brush, I feel that is should be something you love and look forward to using and I'm looking for some inspiration to shake things up a bit. I'm hoping everyone here can chime in on what you prefer and how they work best for you (IE, gel, cream, pressed powder, loose powder, what level of coverage it gives, do they multi-task, etc). For the record, I am including tools like the BeautyBlenders, etc. in the umbrella term of "brushes" here.   Ok, with that being said: What are your preferred all-over/face brushes? Cheek brushes? Eye brushes? Lip brushes? Body brushes if you use them? Any that you use solely for application of skincare products? Any brushes that you use for an alternate purpose than what they are marketed as?    As for my current faves: Spoiler (Highlight to read)  Sephora Classic Multitasker Powder Brush #45 - I use this for foundation. I like that it can apply full coverage as many of the ones originally recommended to me as "full coverage" or "can build up to full coverage" weren't actually achieving full coverage. I currently use it for pressed powder foundation but have heard from multiple people that it works well with liquids or creams too but I'd have to experiment with that some more before I could give any accurate reviews of its performance in that field. I have the Mini version of this for travel too and while it does take a bit longer for application because the bush head is smaller, it does work well if you are short on space but still want to create the same effects while out on vacation.   Hakuho-do + Sephora Pro - Wedge Sloping Powder Brush and Fan Cheek Brush: I just picked these two up recently and use the Wedge for setting powder when I do wear my liquid foundation on occasion but am still experimenting to learn all it can do. I am using the Fan Cheek Brush for crush currently but like I said with the Wedge Brush, since it is still very new so I am still getting adjusted to it. I love how soft they are and how luxurious they feel on my skin. Another added perk I discovered is that when I clean them in the afternoon or evening, they are dry by the next morning. Having a dry time of less than 12 hours as opposed to my Sephora Classic #45 brush taking 3-4 DAYS before it is fully dry tells me they are a higher grade synthetic that is absorbing much less water during cleansing and therefor also product during use. I did experiment a couple times with using the Hakuho-do brushes to apply my liquid foundation which I almost never wear anyway. However, I am so used to using a Beauty Blender to apply the liquid that I would have to practice more to really get the hang of this before I could really say how well they performed with liquid applications.   BeautyBlender and BB Micro-Mini: Like I said, I almost never wear my liquid foundation currently but when I do decide to, my full sized BB is truly on the Holy Grail list for application. I can build coverage as needed, and while it did take a little bit of experimentation to learn, I chalk that up to never having used anything similar prior to picking this up. I use the MicroMini for application and blending of concealer pretty much daily and love it too.    As for eye brushes and pretty much anything besides those three and the BBs, I am still looking for replacements for my old ones. I can still use the old ones as needed until I can find some I truly love but got caught up in other things and haven't gotten to look around at options at all.     Sephora Classic Multitasker Powder Brush #45 - I use this for foundation. I like that it can apply full coverage as many of the ones originally recommended to me as "full coverage" or "can build up to full coverage" weren't actually achieving full coverage. I currently use it for pressed powder foundation but have heard from multiple people that it works well with liquids or creams too but I'd have to experiment with that some more before I could give any accurate reviews of its performance in that field.

I can still use the old ones as needed until I can find some I truly love but got caught up in other things and haven't gotten to look around at options at all.      Almost forgot: the other thing I am desperately in need of is some inspiration for travel brushes. Do you have minis you like or do you take your full size brushes with you when you travel? For those of you that have a mini set for traveling with, what do you use?  If I have forgotten anything else you feel is relevant, feel free to add that in too!

Chemical Lip Exfoliant/Mask
I attended the "Perfectly Paired Lip and Cheek" class at Sephora on Sunday. One of the topics discussed was exfoliating your lips. I have always had very dry, flaky skin from head to toe thanks to being born with Ichthyosis. Dry skin is something I've always struggled with but one area that never seems to improve is my lips. I've tried lip balms from Chapstick to Bite Beauty but nothing works. I've tried just using Vitamin E or other natural oils. I've tried various different physical exfoliants from just using a damp washcloth to using an actual scrub. I find that it might remove some of the flakes but I'm left with uneven areas or borders of flakes sort of like if you pulled a scab off but didn't get all of it. Thus, when I put lipstick on, it looks uneven and sometimes doesn't stick to the center of my lip where the skin is a different, shiny texture. I also have broken capillaries in different areas of my face including around my mouth and chin, so using more scrubs makes me nervous. Now I am looking to find a lip mask or treatment that works more like the AHA/Glycolic treatments I use on my face. I know the lip area is much more delicate so I'm cautious. But does anyone know of a product like this? Maybe a lip mask that uses enzyme action to remove dry patches? Does anyone know if that's how the Kaplan MD Lip 20 mask works?

Oily skin + foundation (Setting powder?)
I recently went in to pick up a new foundation to use in winter (I have a summer look I love with Dior Forever Flawless), but unfortunately I'm paler in winter and it doesn't have a match for my paler complexion. I picked up one that matched with my skintone in-store and that came recommended to me by Sephora staff (makeup forever ultra HD invisible cover stick foundation). I like everything about it except how shiny/oily it makes me look/feel after a few hours.   To that end, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a foundation that worked well with combination skin (I have dry cheeks in winter, but a fairly typically oily T-zone). (My color IQ is 1R04.)   Alternatively, I'm open to the idea of keeping the make up forever foundation if I can find something to mattify it: is there a pressed/setting powder that someone might recommend? (Flash photography is a concern of mine - I do need something that won't show up oddly with a flash.)   Thank you so much for your help!

Foundation for SUPER dry skin
My skin is extremely dry and flaky. I live in Arizona so it doesn't seem to matter how much water I drink or how much moisturizer I use--it never gets better. I use Elizabeth Arden's 8-hour cream as an overnight mask and that does my face the most good, but it's still extremely dry. I also use coconut oil, evening primrose oil, and castor oil as moisturizers, which are somewhat helpful. My problem is in finding a foundation that won't dry me out further. I have rosacea and very pale skin so I need medium/full coverage, and I'm almost always the lightest shade that almost any brand offers for their foundations. I've tried liquid and powder foundations and while mineral powder generally works better, either option still leaves me with patchy foundation by the end of the day. My skin looks like the desert floor. Does anyone know of a foundation that would work with my skin issues?   And, even though this isn't in the right category, extra points if someone can recommend a good, heavy-duty moisturizer (or several). Thanks!!
