Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

I’m looking for a good powder blush and the charlotte tilbury chic to cheek caught my eye! I use the rare beauty liquid blush in joy and was wondering what would be a good pair with it without looking like a clown! I love putting a ton of blush and I am a tan, medium skin tone so I like more peachy than pink. TYIA!!

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Hi there:) I think that is an amazing blush to try! I did some virual color matching and it looks like  Ecstasy - peach pink by Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic Blush would be a great match for you! You can even use a sheer layer of the rare beauty formula first and the lightly layer your blush with a sephora collection blush brush SEPHORA COLLECTION PRO Blush Brush #93 🙂

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

What primer, if any should be used with the new makeup by Mario sculpt and perfector?

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Hi @amandaarc ,

 

Thank you so much for coming here to ask! You would want to prep your skin with skincare and then use a very thin primer. I love to use Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Hydrating Makeup Primer 1 fl oz/ 30 mL  This seams to work really well. I also liek to apply any concealer first then work with the perfector where needed.

 

I hope that its helpful for you.🌸

 

 

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

I have oily, acne-prone skin. The charlotte tilbury flawless filter broke me out, what’s a similar product that’s safe for my skin?

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Hi! I would try the ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starrr Ultimate Blurring Setting Powder it's incredible!!! and if you are looking for a ofundation, I suggest the ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starrr Turn Up the Base Blurring Foundation Medium 1 !!!! Definitely look for your right shade since the tag would only let me choose a shade.

 

Hope this helped!!!

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Use Cover FX Illuminating Setting Powder, or PÜR Color Correction Crème with SPF.  Both have a subtle glamour, and skin-friendly ingredients!  A little goes a long way.  I apply to the high points of my face at home for online meetings, things like that.

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

I noticed on facebook today Sephora employees rated 'Show Lash' by LeVaye Cosmetics #1 lash growth serum is this true?

yet I do not see this product on Sephora website? it there truth in the post? thanks

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Hello! I'm not sure about the FB post, but I do know that a lash serum I have been using for two years is Grande Cosmetics Jumbo GrandeLASH™ - MD Lash Enhancing Serum 6 Month Supply 

 

It's AWESOME!!!! My lashes were so short before I was using this and now they are so long!! I love this Lash serum and won't be without it. I keep it next to my toothbrush to remind me to use it at least once a day.

 

Hope this helped!

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

I get a lot of blackheads and really easily do you have any suggestions for masks that are good for dry and sensitive skin?

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Yes! I also have dry, sensitive skin (in some areas I'm super dry and some areas more oily), and I have very sensitive skin)  and I use Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Clay Mask 2.54 oz/ 75 mL 

 

I first exfoliate with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Clarifying Peel Pads 60 Pads , then apply the Goddess clay mask. Leave on for 20 mins, rinse and follow with the rest of your skin care routine.

 

What also helps to keep my pores clean is using a SEPHORA COLLECTION Cleaning Me Softly Facial Cleansing Brush Black with my cleanser daily.

 

Hope this helped!

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Hello!! I have fine flat hair n I need something to help with volume for my hair ! Any ideas for me?? 

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Same @Moochie88 , I have long fine flat hair, this works for me I hope it helps 🙂

 

1)Shampoo and focus on roots, once a week shampoo twice but really really extra rinse shampoo out of your hair every time you wash. 

2)When conditioning only put it on the lengths. Do not condition hair at the ears or above. And again, rinse well. 

3)Let your hair dry in a microfiber wrap over your head for add long as possible, like 75% dry

Tips: If you blow dry, try not to go above your ears and blow drying upside down can give you body. * fine hair is so fragile, I 100% use heat protectors Olaplex No. 9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum 3 oz / 90 mL 

 

**with fine hair less is more when it comes to product. A nickle size for shampoo and a half pump for styling creams etc.. but it is all very personal and you have to find your own balance**

 

If I want extra body at 95 % dry I'll put it in velcro rollers and let it finish drying for an hour and take then out and get an extra boost of volume. I use Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother 3.3 oz/ 100 mL before styling if I'm using rollers or trying to get a certain look to hold. Being careful because fine hair breaks so quickly especially if wet or damp

 

I hope you find something that works for you

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Oh yes! I have fine hair even though I have a lot of it. So I help it look fuller by using the following:

 

Bumble and bumble Thickening Volume Shampooand conditioner

Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray 8 oz/ 250 mL(spray onto wet roots and comb through, then dry or let air dry)

Vegamour GRO Hair Serum for Thinning Hair 1 oz / 30 mL(totally have new growth I noticed within a month)

 

Also, a dry shampoo applied to my roots helps to give me a lot of volume!

 

Hope this helped!

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

I recently moved from India to Florida Jacksonville. This changed my hair and now I face issue with dry hair, split ends and flaky scalp. I had acne too, but thanks to few experts from sephora my acne issue has reduced a lot now.

 

Can someone help me with my hair concerns 

 

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Get a shower head filter from Lowes or Home Depot.  It made a huge difference for mine and my partner’s hair when we moved to another part of the USA.

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

I did get the hair filter, still I find that it's not helping. But thank you so much for responding. 

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Hi! Okay, I got you.

 

you want to exfoliate the scalp, repair the ends and add a hydrating hair mask into your routine.

 

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo 32 oz/ 936 mLadd this into your washing routine once a week or every other wash.

 

Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Hair Mask 32 oz/ 946 mLadd this into your conditioning routine once a week or every other wash

 

ALTERNA Haircare CAVIAR Anti-Aging® Restructuring Bond Repair Leave-In Overnight Serum 3.4 oz/ 100 m...  use a few times a week.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Thank you so much for your suggestion. I started using the scalp revival and hair mask from brio geo. But I was told to not use them for every wash. Do you any suggestion on what shampoo and conditioner I can use for every wash in general?

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Do I absolutely need an eye primer first if I'm using the "Caviar Stick Eyeshadow"? I would like to use it as a eye primer but if I also have to use another one to fix it, it's not advantageous, right? Do I have to use loose powder to fix it? Help!

Re: Ask a Beauty Expert

Hi! I sometimes don't use a primer under the #Laura Mercier Caviar Stick if I'm relaxing that day. But if I want it to last, I definitely apply a sheer layer of a primer under it, add the Caviar stick then set with a loose translucent powder! So your instincts are correct!!!
