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.
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
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.
Hey Y'all, My dress that I am wearing to my formal next month is emerald green and has a very low back? Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should do my hair and makeup for this dress? Thanks. Melissa
I really want to get into working with eyeshadows, but I have monolids and can't find that many tutorials and tips. I really like colours and would love to incorporate colours into everyday looks. I was wondering what are some suggestions for applying colourful eyeshadow to monolids without creating a fake crease?
Ok, so there's acne treatment and various things to treat pimple on the face. If it's drying or harsh, no big deal. But I've got a tiny red bump on the lip that hurts every time I touch it and it's a problem when I eat. Moreover, I JUST manage to recover my lips from it's previous dry/itchy/flaky condition, so....... Have you ever gotten pimples on your lips? how do you deal with that? Thanks.

A few years ago I bought my mother Dior Addict Lip Polish in Fresh Expert for Christmas and she loved it. She loved the color and the feel and everything about it. She asked me to get it again, but it appears to be discontinued. Is anyone familiar with this product and know of a good replacement product in a similar color? Thanks!
I'm younger so I prefer natural eye looks that accentuate my blue/grey eyes without overpowering my fair/blond coloring. I have the naked basics pallete and am looking to make a larger pallete purchase. I'm not very into darker makeup or like a smokey or sultry look. Suggestions?
I know Sephora offers a wonderful exchange/return policy... but I feel bad returning my items. I feel like I return my items about 50% of the time because honestly, after the first use I can tell I already don't like it. I don't want to get on their list (of bad customers) for returning too many items, I'm honestly not trying to rip them off.
Hi! I need a countour color to put under my cheekbone for that high cheek bone look... but it always looks like a harsh line or really muddy i tried hoola by benefit & it breaks me out plus its too dark PLEASE HELP!?
So I had the color IQ test done two different time and both times came back with the same answer, 4Y06, Which is a light-medium with yellow undertones. But then when I went to ulta to get matched she said I was fair with neutral to pink undertones. And I've always been bad at finding the right foundation shade. I was just wondering which I should trust more?
So everytime i put on pressed powder after my foundation, my face looks dry,flaky and cakey. its mostly around the sides of my nose, cheeks and forehead. i have very pale skin and have dry,sensitive cheeks and my forehead chin and nose are oily. could someone recommend a product or advice for me?
I have combination skin and I have been looking all over for a moisturizer and foundation primer that doesn't irritate my skin. I finally found both- but I'm starting to see that even after I let my moisturizer sit for a while before I put on the primer (and then I do apply the primer) and I'm applying my foundation, there are dry patches all over my face! Especially my nose, under my eyes, and on my forehead. I generally apply more primer on my dry spots, since the primer I use is hydrating, or so. I don't know really what to do, should I change my primer? Is it my skin? My moisturizer? Even my foundation? Or am I missing a step or doing something wrong in my beauty routine? Please help!
I have very sensitive skin that's often prone to redness and acne. However, I just started trying out makeup and I want to figure out what's best for my skin while being able to experiment with different styles and colors. However, I don't like products/brands that contain harsh chemicals (i.e. parabens or phthalates) or test on animals. With that in mind, do any of you have recommendations for these items: Makeup Remover Wipes/Brush Cleaners Eyeshadow/Face Palettes (in neutral, soft, vivid/bold colors and/or a combo of any of these) Single Eyeshadows/Blushes/Highlighters/Bronzers Colorless Lip Balm Mascara Eyeliner Lipstick/Gloss/Stain/Colored Lip Balm Thank you!
I use MUFE HD. And soon I'm planning on replacing my old bottle. I saw that they had a kit recently so I thought I'd invest my money into it, since I replaced my HD powder with ELFs HD. Anyway, I was looking into the NARS foundations, and thought about giving it a try, even though I love my HD foundation. So what foundation do you use? And between HD and NARS which would you say you've had a better experience with. I've only used face primer from NARS and didn't really like it. Also, a poll would be a nice addition to beauty talk.
