The UnNude Lip Challenge
If you're on BeautyTalk, you're probably well-aware of the nude lip trend and may even own a handful (or three) of these shades. While I love the trend, I still can't seem to find my "perfect nude" so I am very excited to start talking more broadly about UnNudes! UnNude lip shades offer a spectrum from standard nude shades to more bold, neutral shades. These are the mauvy brown, deep chocolate, rose-goldy-earth toned neutral shades and they come in a variety of finishes (matte, metallic, creamy and shiny).    Here's the challenge: rock an UnNude lip look between Monday, February 6th- Tuesday, February 28th. No requirement on how often to post but I'm going to try for every weekday!    Keep in mind, this challenge overlaps Valentine's Day so I am also challenging you to change it up by wearing a bold neutral instead of the typical red.  (Hint: red is not an UnNude!)   Check the spoiler for examples of some of UnNude shades. Can't wait to see your take on neutral lips! Spoiler (Highlight to read)   EDIT: I have changed the timing. This challenge will run through the end of February so keep the UnNude looks coming!

full coverage powder?
I am 23 and and normal or oily skin (throughout the day it gets oily). I went and a worker paired me up with the "Born This Way" foundation and the "IT" clear powder. I liked the foundation, not so much the powder. Through out the day, I become so so cakey (I use a setting spray and beauty blender once my face is put on to help really set the makeup) and I ALWAYS get thick, gross looking "smile lines" that I have to smooth out with my fingers by the middle/end of the day?? I'm not so into the thick look, I like to be a little more natural but also able to cover small imperfections...I am a nurse and a mom so my get ready time in the morning is almost non-existent. I feel a full coverage powder would help with my get ready time in the morning and wont leave me looking so cakey by the end of the day. I feel like since I'm wanting a more light, natural look I should go with Clinique or Bare Minerals? TIA ))

Recommendations for bridal makeup that will last
Hey guys,   I'm getting married in June and I'm definitely in need of some makeup recommendations! I'm going to be doing my makeup myself and it's going to need to last from about 10am until 10pm...so pretty much all day, the majority of which will be outside. I've tried so many different foundations and I feel like I have yet to find something that can do everything I need it to. I've been using estee lauder double wear foundation for staying power but I feel like it starts to make my skin look dry and kind of a little more cement-y than I'd like, plus I get definite flashback with it so that's a problem. Basically I need something that will stay on my face through the hot weather, stay looking flawless and not cling to dry patches, and look beautiful in pictures. Any recommendations for primer, concealer, foundation, powder, and lip color is welcomed!

Oily Skin Help!
This is a question for those who suffer with oily skin like myself. It is truly a curse. I prime, foundation, concealer, powder, and set all my make up and halfway into my shift at work or throughout the day i am having to blot away at my t-zone. I know there is no fixing this but i am in need of ANY suggestions. I currently wear the KAT VON D foundation, concealer and powder. I am satisified and it keeps my face matte (for the most part) but i do not like to wear all that makeup everytime i leave the house. I am currently looking into other foundations and even a BB or CC cream really. I would love some insight on foundations, concealers, powders, ANYTHING! I read reviews nonstop but there is always that one that disagrees so i do not purchase anything else. Thank you all!

FOUNDATION EMERGENCY
So I've been on the hunt for a perfect foundation, and have been researching non-stop for the past couple weeks... I NEED HELP! I have combo skin (nose is oily + forehead & everywhere else is normal) with mild acne. I don't have any cysts or anything just some whiteheads here and there, and overall bumpy skin. I was looking for a foundation that is going to hydrate my dry areas but not add too much shine, so more of a satin or demi-matte finish. I also want it to look like skin with a medium, maybe full coverage. Longevity isn't a huge issue but preferably 7+ hours, but I just want it to look more natural and not emphasize my bumpy skin. I have narrowed it down to a couple... -Urban Decay Naked Skin -Smashbox Studio Skin -Lancome Teint Idole  -Clinque Superbalanced   From what options would work the best? I haven't gotten samples because I don't go into the store very often (don't love the customer service). Thank you!
