Q. I need some help looking for a concealer
Hello everyone!   I need some help finding a good concealer for my dark circles and minor pimples. I bought COVER FX concealer yesterday, I wanted to know has anyone tried it, how did it work? I like the Nars Creamy Concealer, but it finishes in no time with me. Are there any other concealers that are good, let me know     Thank you for all your help

Q. Good mascara for thin, short eyelashes?
So my eyelashes are really thin, and i'd say they're short.Even using an eyelash curler they arent that amazing. The mascaras ive tried are Maybelline mega plush, Dior iconic overcurl ( everyone always suggests this and I liked it but it didnt make them as long as I hoped :-( ) . I liked the Dior one but i'm hoping to find something better that will make my eyelashes look thicker + longer. I dont know how some people get their eyelashes so long and thick looking lol. If you have any suggestions i'd love to hear .

Q. Best Foundations??
Hello! I am in a busy search for a foundation that doesn't break me out! I recently switched to high end foundations after using about four bottles of my Covergirl 3-in-1 foundation. It started to break me out (which it never did before) I have tried the Nars Sheer Glow foundation, and that made it worse! Do you have any foundations in Sephora that stay on, are for oily skin, and DONT BREAK YOU OUT? Thank you!!

Q. COLLEGE?!
Hello all!   As you can tell from the title I will be on my way to college very soon! This means I will pretty much be on my own money-wise (with only minimal help from parents). I want to be responsible with my money, but I also don't want to give up some of my favorite makeup brands (first world problems am I right?). This applies to skincare too!   Some questions I have: When do I save and when do I splurge? How long do certain products last (meaning how long before I run out?)? How can I get the most out of my products (making them last as long as possible)? What's a healthy budget amount for makeup? Per year, per month? What are the bare minimum products I should use? One of my goals is to not be excessive with the amount of products I have! Just the basics!

Q. Primer? Serum? Does this ring a bell with anyone?
One night, while I was very sleepy, I read a product description that stated it really helped fill in fine under eye wrinkles. I think it was a primer and chances are it helped with pores as well. I definitely remember the directions said you had to warm it in your palm before you applied it and I can even remember reading in the reviews how important it was to not skip that step. But I can't remember what it was! Does this sound familiar to anyone...please?

I use smashbox BB cream, NARS cream compact foundation (lightly not all over) and the Naked Flushed bronzing trio with their winged brush. However when i apply the bronzer it totally makes my skin look so blotchy. Before bronzer my skin tone is even and natural and then with the bronzer it turns out blotchy and when i try to correct the blotchyness it just comes out too dark and cakey. PLEASE HELP!!! Any advice or good products that will stop this from happening? Looking for a really natural look that wont make my skin breakout -- also have been having more breakouts then usual and wondering if its the smashbox bb cream?

Q. Makeover Essentials Cosmetics Makeup Line
I was at work today and a lady came in selling make up sets at reduced prices or she claims. The sales lady said that this product is sold at SEPHORA so I went to the store and asked an employee and was told that they have never heard of this make-up line. She said it was going to hit Macy's, Dillards, and Ulta next week. She was selling items priced at $39.99, the "eyes have it" shadow kit, priced at $25.99, and the "shimmer bronzer brush", priced at $29.99, for $20 dollars and so I bought one but now I am skeptical about it. They lead me to believe that it's a mineral based makeup like Bare Minerals. The colors are very pigmented. Has anyone else bought this stuff?

Q. Prom Season!
So as we know, prom night is right around the corner (3 weeks for me!), and a girl's biggest stress is hair and makeup. This year, more so than last year, I chose to be daring in my dress choice: a vibrant sea foam green sequin and rhinestone sweetheart neckline beaut. As I vowed to never wear a green dress, I am now posed with the question, what color shadow would look best? Keep in mind I am a brunette with green eyes as well. I'm all for the flashy red carpet look as you can see, and dare to look the best. Any advice/tips?

Q. Does anyone else have this problem? Help!
Okay, so I'm the kind of girl that loves to load my lashes up with tons of coats of mascara till they are long, spidery, and pretty darn stiff. (I really need to start buying some falsies, haha!) So at the end of the day when I'm ready to take all of my makeup off I start dreading removing my eye makeup and tend to remove it last because of how difficult it is for me. I get all nervous and have this fear of my eyelashes falling out because of how stiff they are with all the dried on mascara. Also, the mascara never really comes off completely (help!) and sometimes my lashes even hurt a little after I remove the makeup. Plus it doesn't help that my eyes are super duper sensitive and get all red and burn when removing my eye makeup. I know, I know you guys probably will say stop putting on so much mascara and you're right. For awhile I've been cutting the amount of coats I put on my lashes but it's still a pain to remove the mascara at night. Is there anything I can do to make the process easier? Maybe a certain technique or product? (By the way, I have been using cold cream on my eyelids and then wetting a washcloth with hot water and putting it over my face for a few seconds to melt the eye makeup.) Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Q. So fed up with products that don't work.. Help is needed :(
Hello, I'm in dire need of an excellent foundation/bb creme that actually works. I have combination skin with constant breakouts and acne scars/dark spots. I need something with coverage but does not cake up, also something very light.. I'm very pale and find most of the "light" shades to be to dark. I find the full coverage foundations work well at first, but then ball up and look cake and emphasize my dry patches.. Ugh. I use a primer too, benefits porefessional. I have probably spent $1000 trying different products hoping they will work. Also looking for a good setting powder. So ladies please help me out.. What products have the power of giving flawless skin... i know they're out there. I know it's hard to see what my skin looks like since I have no pictures .. But just imagine very light uneven skin with hormonal acne and dark acne scars along the cheeks. Maybe if any of you ladies have a holy grail face routine you could post a before after picture or describe in detail on how you apply your makeup. I am sick and fed up of products being too dark and not doing a very good job. Thank you! Anything helps.
