Face Q&A
I recently read that cornstarch can aggravate acne. I also read that talc is a known carcinogen. I am currently using Nars blush but I keep breaking out only where I apply it...I want to try something new but I can't seem to find any blush that does not have these 2 ingredients! please help.
Eyes Q&A
as much as i love maybeline's mascaras, they smudge and flake like crazy. i need something that lengthens and separates (like maybeline's one by one) and keeps my long lashes from falling down over my eyes. most importantly i need something that doesn't give me raccoon eyes.   p.s. i've tried hypnose, it burns like crazy. i guess my eyes are sensitive too.

Face Q&A
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 
Face Q&A
I want to get my makeup done for prom at Sephora and I have a few questions. If you've ever gone your makeup done here, what was your experience? Did you like the makeup? How long will it take? I'm also getting my hair done by a family friend before. I want to make sure I have plenty of time. Prom starts at 7 but we're also going to eat and take pictures, I've never been to prom before so I have no idea how long this takes. Any idea what time I should make my appointment? I'm also going to the mall tomorrow anyway and should I just make my appointment while I'm there, or would it be better to call? Any other tips/comments? Thanks!

Lips Q&A
I cannot decide between Nars lip pencils in Walkyrie and Dolce Vita, anyone that could tell me the difference between them? 
Face Q&A
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?
Makeup
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?
Eyes Q&A
Does anyone know of a great under eye/dark circle concealer? I hardly wear any makeup so it would have to be subtle, but effective. I am at a loss, any suggestions??
Eyes Q&A
Hi I want to have the impression of long natural thick eyelashes. But not wear fake eyelashes. What macara is the best for what I'm looking for?
Face Q&A
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.
Face Q&A
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.

Eyes Q&A
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?

Whenever I purchase something from a Sephora store, they always say to do the survey because you could win a gift card, and I've always wondered if anyone's actually won. So has anyone actually won?

Lips Q&A
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!
Eyes Q&A
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?
