Q. What eye palette should I buy next?
I am interested in buying an eye palette for everyday makeup looks and I'm trying to figure out what to buy next. I already bought the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette so that's out. Information about me is that I have green eyes and my skin tone is light to median.

A. I vote for a viseart palette. They are pricey but the quality is really amazing and if you go for one of the theory palettes it is not out of control expensive.  see post
Q. Best concealer for blemishes
I am wondering what people think as the best concealer for blemishes. I don't like ones with salicylic acid. I was using shape tape and the nars soft matte but both are too pink in my shade and doesn't fully cover. Any suggestions?

Q. Uneven Eyebrow Help!!
One of my eyebrows is higher than the other and also a different shape - much more arched whereas the other is more straight. Every time I go to get my eyebrows threaded, they can never do much about it. But when I fill them in, it's so obvious, especially in photos! I don't know what to do - any ideas? (I use ABH dipbrow, but any suggestions are great)

Q. Dior Extase Mascara Substitutes
I was sooo disappointed to find out that Dior had discontinued their Extase line of mascara and need a good alternative. Tried Better than Sex, Rollerlash, They're Real (different but better than the others), Diorshow, ect but haven't found one that lives up to Extase. Your suggestions are appreciated- thank you.

Q. Prom Lipstick Help!!
I'm wearing a navy blue dress and I'm using the Modern Renaissance palette for my eyes. I have very pale neutral-toned skin, blue eyes, and very dark brown hair. I would really like something that doesn't need to be reapplied to often and doesn't look super weird when it wears off.

Q. How long does your Tinted Moisturizer bottle/tube last?
I'm trying to justify spending the $ for a mid to high end TM I haven't worn a foundation, TM, BB cream or really any kind of facial tinting product in about 7 years so I don't remember how long bottles/tubes usually last. What kind of TM do you use, how many days a week do you use it and about how long does it last you?

Q. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer vs. Benefit Hoola
So I've for a long time been looking for the perfect bronzer, and I've put it down to two bronzers, that I have to chose between.   I'm asian with medium/olive skin tone, and I don't really have any skin problems.   So I want to ask you, which one do you like better and why? Or if you only have one of them, why do you like or dislike the product?

A. Hi LipstickTilly,   I think both bronzers are great, however, I think Hoola might be better with your skintone as the chocolate soleil is definitely a deeper shade. ... see post
Q. Which color should I use to counteract dark patches?
Okay my face overall is pretty light/pale in color, but uh.. years of sun damage on my lower face has made my mouth area slightly darker. But my neck is pale so it looks super weird if I try to match the rest of my face to the color of my chin/mouth area. But if I wear a lighter foundation to match my neck and other areas on my face, the chin/mouth area looks really ashy and grey.    I thought maybe color correcting can help me, to wear them underneath my foundation. But I have no idea which color works for brightening a big area of dark patches? The color isn't blue/purple/yellow anything, although I guess it falls under the category of "sallowness", but I've tried lavender colors before and it just makes the area look even more ashy and unattractive. Any ideas? Would orange work? I thought orange was for the green/blue like, for undereyes and such.

Q. Natural Asian Wedding Make-up and Hair Artist Recommendations in the SGV Area
I am looking for recommendations for an Asian bridal make-up and hair artist in the San Gabriel Valley, CA area (especially in Pasadena, Alhambra, San Gabriel) to do fresh, natural (not over-done) Asian makeup for my wedding day.   I am hoping to spend $300 or so (including wedding hair/make-up and trial hair/make-up) to find an artist who is professional and well-reviewed. I also need an artist who has a studio or salon at which to meet since I don't want to have my hair/make-up done at my house or at the venue.    Please message me if you've worked with an artist, and can highly recommend them. I'd prefer artists who work with a lot of Asian brides (some make-up artists struggle with Asian eye makeup), and who can do both hair and make-up.    I am attaching pictures of the type of natural Asian make-up look that I'm going for.    I

Q. Looking for illuminating loose powder
My go-to loose powder (Cover FX Illuminating Setting powder) isn't available in the US anymore.    What's a good substitute that is good for all-over daytime coverage with just a touch of glow—not shiny or glittery.    I'm fair-skinned and would need translucent, if possible, or very light shade.

Q. Adelaide Kane-inspired cool, rose blush
Hi all! I am a big fan of Adelaide Kane (an actress from Reign, Teen Wolf, etc.). Recently, she uploaded pictures to Instagram from a photoshoot she had done with photographer Jordan Harvey. I fell in love with the soft color used on her cheeks and was hoping that the Sephora community might be able to make a recommendation on a blush that would dupe the blush used on Adelaide for the shoot.    I did a little digging and found that the exact blush used for the shoot was Au Naturale Cosmetics Organic Creme Blusher in Rose (a soft burgundy shade). Any recommendations for this little obsession of mine?       tags: blush, adelaide kane, rose, burgundy, au naturale, reign, cool, cool tone
