Hi everyone, I am looking for help on what eyeshadow palette to buy that will compliment my eye color and can be used for day and night looks. I have pale skin and my eyes are a golden/brown color. I have the urban decay Naked 1 but am looking for something else that will help my eyes pop.
I feel like no matter what I do, any kind of liquid or cream makeup separates on my face throughout the day, leaving a splotchy finish, and almost like there are some spots where the foundation has rubbed off? It also ends up looking almost like the makeup is sitting 'on top' of my skin, if that makes any sense. Trying to buff it out only seems to make it worse. It is SO frustrating because I leave the house in the morning and love the way my makeup looks, but by noon it can be embarrassingly bad! I just turned 26, have very very fair, dry skin that is sensitive and prone to redness, but I take good care of it and generally think of myself as having 'good' skin. This problem happens if I exfoliate or don't exfoliate, if I prime or don't prime, if I moisturize or don't moisturize, if I set with powder, if I set with a spray, if I do both, etc. I have tried waiting 10 minutes to let my moisturizer sink in, then waiting another 10 to let my sunscreen sink in, I've tried the 'goss method' of lightly powdering after moisturizing/priming (this sometimes seems to help slightly). I've tried different moisturizers, primers, foundations, powders, and also different methods of application (BB, brushes, fingers,etc)... I'm at my wit's end. As far as I can tell I don't have any oil/water/silicone conflict issues, and lord knows I've tried so many different combinations of products and methods, I can't imagine that would be happening every time. I would SO SO SO appreciate any and all help or even just ideas-- I'm willing to try anything! I'm going to list my products used below (listing all the different things I've tried/in my arsenal-- I don't mean to say that I use them all at once). I'll be forever in your debt if you can help me solve this! Skincare routine: Wash at night with either Fresh Soy Cleanser or Mario Badescu Keroplast cream soap Image skincare 'vital c' serum, followed by Mario Badescu 'caviar night cream' and eye cream at night. In the morning I use the Mario Badescu 'caviar day cream', or have also tried Olay Regenerist or Olay luminous moisturizers. I've used lots of different sunscreens-- Neutrogena pure & free, Biore 50+ face milk, Cerave 50+ face, etc. Primers: I've used no primer, Smashbox photofinish, Tarte timeless smoothing primer, l'oreal magic lumi primer, and two different ulta brand primers (flawless face and another one) Foundations: I've used: Kat Von D Lock it Illamasqua Skin Base Missha BB CoverFX Liquid Foundation A bunch of drugstore ones I should note that foundations are the trickiest for me to switch up, as I'm super pale and have a hard time finding stuff that matches. Concealers: Don't know if this super matters or not, but I've used: Kat von d lock it creme Nars creamy radiant CoverFX blemish clearing concealer Tarte shapetape concealer Tarte creaseless concealer As far as setting powders, I've used both pressed (ELF translucent, MAC Fix+, NYX pressed powder) and loose (Makeup forever translucent, bare minerals orginial, bare minerals mineral veil, etc.). I've also used Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, NYX dewy finish setting spray, Smashbox Primer Water, & Mario Badescu Rose water spray. I hope all of this information is helpful, and I'll love you forever if you're able to even attempt solving this for me! Thank you so much!
Hi there - I have the Urban Decay Naked Flush in the color Naked. I love this product but unfortunately I already ran out of the highlighter but have plenty of the blush and bronzer. Is there one you recommend that will go? Please let me know. Thank you. BB
Hi, I was wondering what you guys think are the best lighted mirrors that aren't too expensive. I've been looking for a good one for quite some time, that you look into and its supposed to have the lighting just right so your makeup looks good in every lighting. Thanks
This lipstick was my go-to shade. It seems to be discontinued and I'm freaking out. Does anyone have any recommendation for a lipstick brand and shade that's the equivalent? It's listed as a sheer mauve, but not all sheer mauves are created equal! ha.
I've been using Drunk Elephant's entire line for months now, and am in L O V E. I've never found better skincare. The only one I'm less than ecstatic with is the Shaba eye serum- I haven't really noticed any difference at all, and when the price point is that high, you want results. I was just wondering if anyone had compared DE's eye cream to others of it's caliber, like Sunday Riley's, or had suggestions for alternatives. I'm looking to avoid the usuals, parabens, sulfates, fragrance, etc.
I totally missed out on the launch at Barney's--AGAIN! Same thing happened last year, I waited for the Holiday 2015 collection to launch at Sephora and it never did. I always prefer to buy from here... I asked CS and they flat-out told me they had no idea. Anyone else have an idea where I can get my hands on the lipstick in 213 Rose Audacieux that's from this collection? Thanks!
Hi, Can anyone recommend a dupe that is close to Kat von D's blush in Essex? It's such a gorgeous color that I would love to find something else as a backup. I really wish she would come out with blushes again Thanks!
Hi all! I'm a lovely Canadian lady who would really love to get my hands on the new Lorac Mega Pro 3. But it's not available in Canada and I cannot order it from Ulta. Would an amazing American beauty addict be willing to pick one up for me? Of course, I pay the palette and shipping to my (apparently) very distant country! TIA!
Hi. I have heard so much positive about the Kat Von D Lock it Foundation, and i really ant to buy it.But i have a problem. I don`t live anywhere near a store where i can buy it, and i don't know which colour that fits my skin tone I use Mac studio sculpt foundation spf 15 in shade NC20. Maybe by knowing this, you guys can find the right colour for me from Kat Von D? <3

Hello everyone! I saw the snapchat of Kylie Jenner where she mixed the MUFE ultra HD foundation with the Naked skin one and done and I wanted to know if anybody tried it yet? How is it? How it looks like? Do you recommand it? Also, I wanted to try but maybe with the Born this way foundation from Too Faced! What do you guys think?
Hello, I normally only wear concealer for my under eyes and no foundation, leaving me with a white cast in flash photography. I am currently using urban decays naked eye concealer. I have tried many other concealers and even tried bringing the concealer to my temples to help it blend into my skin better but the white cast still shows in flash. What should i do?
