  1. There is mild formula Jolen cream bleach as well. I have sensitive skin and I used it on my face. It did burn a little, but it didn't make me break out.
  2. What makeup products (type and brand) do you wear, and how do you remove it all?
  3. Yes! Oh god. If the lighting is bad (usually fluorescent), and I look in the mirror, my heart just drops. Every flaw is visible, and any attempt to cover these flaws with makeup is also visible.
  4. Are you using a foundation with a matte finish, and then setting that foundation with a powder? That usually keeps my oiliness at bay. As someone mentioned above, oil absorbing sheets are a god-send for touch-ups on the go. So is a pressed powder!
  5. 1) You should be using a natural, satin or dewy finish liquid foundation. Matte foundations can be drying. Also, make sure the shade matches your skin perfectly! 2) You have to be very careful when applying foundation. A standard foundation brush or stippling brush would be good tools for application - preferable to a buffing brush or your fingers, which are less delicate and less precise. 3) Try using a moisturizing or hydrating face primer. And upon reading the thread, I realized I've j
  6. Yeah, fluorescent lighting is the worst. No matter how confident I feel that day, it makes me want to run and hide. Be careful when attempting to cover your acne with foundation/concealer, because if it doesn't exactly match you skin tone, or isn't blended properly - it will be very obvious you're wearing makeup. Only thing worse than having acne is having acne AND a bad makeup job. My solution has been to focus my foundation/concealer in the center of my face (T-zone).
  7. You should invest in an oil-free mattifying primer and foundation, and of course a translucent setting powder. That should do the trick. Make Up Forever has the All Mat Primer, and the Mat Velvet liquid foundation. They also have a mattifying powder foundation, which I guess would be the ultimate fix. I have oily skin as well, though, and I find as long as I use any oil-free foundation, I am fine.
  8. Hey, so I just started using the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, which is oil-free. It's expensive but I decided to treat myself - and I love it! I'll have to wait until I finish the tube to decide whether it's worth re-purchasing, as it's such a steep price. But if money is no object, I would recommend it! Okay, i trust you i think i'll pick it up tomorrow! I love Laura's primer so this sounds promising. Do you put reg. moisturizer on THEN that? I have dry/normal skin. Thanks! xx I have a

  10. Yes times a hundred! When I first started the regimen, I was so eager to have clear skin that I ignored my skin (which was basically inflamed). I had to stop the regimen entirely and it's set me back a month. So yes, if you have sensitive skin - Dan's mantra of "when in doubt, use more BP" is probably not something you want to heed.
  11. Bold eyebrows are amazing! What you're describing is enviable. Almost every beauty guru I've watched on Youtube darkens and thickens their eyebrows with some kind of liner or shadow. It's definitely a trend. If it really bothers you though, perhaps you should consider dying them a lighter shade or getting them professionally shaped? Make sure you go somewhere highly reputable, of course. I went to cheap salon once to get my eyebrows waxed and had to spend the following two months growing them o
  12. I used to love my full coverage foundation - the more flawless my face looked the better! I would often put foundation powder ON TOP of the liquid foundation. Yuck! Since starting the regimen, however, I prefer a much lighter coverage. I apply a tinted moisturizer (oil-free), then I spot treat my acne scars with some concealer, and finally I apply some translucent powder to set the products and control shine. I don't want my face to scream, "I'm wearing makeup!" I want it to look natural. That's
  13. Make sure you use a moisturizer with a high SPF.
  14. I think the key is finding a foundation that is mostly oil-free. It's unanimous amongst acne experts that oily products used all over the face will cause pimples. I have been using MAC Matchmaster foundation recently - I really like it, but it sometimes causes a few pimples here and there. I use MAC Studio Finish concealer for my red acne scars, which I love. My new plan is to stay away from foundations altogether and switch to a tinted moisturizer. The coverage will be light, but I am only u
  15. He is the best beauty guru on Youtube! So many helpful hints and tricks.
