i’m pretty sure my skin had an allergic reaction to a makeup wipe, and now it’s completely dried out. it’s peeling in some spots, and it burns to apply any product to it. has this happened to anyone before? if so, what products did you use to fix it? thank you!
So no matter what type of foundation, setting spray, and translucent powder I use my skin ALWAYS gets oily/shiny and caked in my pores. I have tried a TON of remedies and no success 😕 any advice or products? Thank you!
I have dry, acne prone skin and I have been trying everything to get rid of my acne for the past year! nothing works (curology, neutrogena light mask, acne washes, tea tree oil, mario badescu- you name it!) does anyone have any recommendations for a natural at home remedy for acne? I’m done with all the chemicals ingredients on my face.
With so many people moving into serums and acids just a reminder:
You should NOT mix these
VITAMIN C + AHAS/BHAS : Combining retinol with Vitamin C is a recipe for peeling, redness and irritation, in short, a total disaster for the health of your skin
RETINOIDS + AHAS/BHAS: damages skin moisture barrier and can cause irritation, redness, dry skin over time; use separately and sparingly
RETINOIDS + VITAMIN C: may cause over exfoliation, resulting in increased skin and sun sensitivity; separate into day/night routines
Benzoyl peroxide + vitamin C
OIL-BASED + WATER-BASED.
GLYCOLIC ACID + SALICYLIC ACID: too many acids can strip the skin and damage its ability to recover
NIACINAMIDE + VITAMIN C: use in careful moderation. Some studies show that They stabilize each other some shoe that mixing vitamin c can result in a niacin flush (red irritation to the skin).
-Retinols should mostly be used at night
- Vitamin C should mostly be used at night
-Wait 20 mins when layering multiple serums (if you find your skin can tolerate it in one setting)
-Don’t forger your SPF 30 during the day
-When introducing acids to your face “purging” is only normal to a certain extent
What’s the best lip product (balm, lipstick) that’s natural and hydrating? It doesn’t have to be long lasting, something like a sheer/slight tint to add color to your lips so you don’t look like a ghost! Thank you!
I’m a makeup beginner at 21 and I’m super interested in makeup but don’t know a whole lot, so I’m just looking for good basic products to start out with like foundation and concealer. When I was younger, I gave up on trying to do my makeup because it always looked cakey and you could CLEARLY see every pore in my face lol. Anything that’s relatively cheap (I don’t want to waste an expensive product as I don’t really know what I’m doing) and maybe pore minimizing? I have pretty dry skin and a bit of redness, so I would need something full coverage if anyone could help :)
how would you subtly work in purple shadow into your eye look? I bought this new eyeshadow pallet because someone on here suggested it to bring out my green eyes (thanks btw) but i don’t want to wear just the purple because i don’t think i can pull it off. Any suggestions?
does anyone know of a good setting spray that’ll both keep my makeup in place all day and prevent it from looking crusty?? i’ve tried the nyx matte finish setting spray but it doesn’t work for me :( every time i hug my boyfriend or a friend, my makeup leaves a mark on their shirt...any suggestions on what i should try? thank you!
What is your go to foundation? I love a fuller coverage with a matte finish that is long lasting. I am currently using Makeup forever HD and while the coverage is amazing it doesn’t stay on very long for me. I also have acne prone skin so something that won’t clog my pores. Thank you!
