  • With my oily skin I don't use cream shadows, they crease like mad. Powder stays put much better for me. I do have a suggestion that might help. I am not sure it would work with a cream shadow underneath, but you can always experiment! For times when…
  • All I can say, Tabby, is nail polish isn't what it used to be. Several years ago I had a cheap 99 cent polish and cheap 99 cent base coat I could apply and reasonably expect to get at least a week's wear out of with no problems. Now? Not so much. It…
  • Revlon ColorStay works well for tightlining. I love the look of tightening, but the eye docs I have asked about it REALLY do not like the idea.
  • Yay, Sarah! Are you noticing visible improvements in skin tone and texture?
  • I just know it works well for me and the dermatologist said it is an acceptable way to reapply over makeup.  Thanks, Randy!
  • I hope the link works.  http://www.amazon.com/Colorescience-Sunforgettable-Mineral-Powder-Brush/dp/B002FCDC1A/ref=pd_sim_194_15?ie=UTF8&refRID=1KFFQ7FFPGGAMCXAJHE3 This is the ingredient list as per the amazon website : Titanium Dioxide 12%, Zi…
  • I have no idea how to explain why and how powders stick to skin. Maybe Randy can explain that one to everyone. Because I don't breathe in while applying the Colorscience product I am not concerned about breathing in anything I should not. Using a sp…
  • My brushes are mostly eco brand, plus one e.l.f. blusher brush, not expensive at all. After more than a year of cleaning daily with alcohol, and washing on a regular basis with soap and water, all the brushes are still in excellent shape. That is on…
  • My dermatologist gave a thumbs up to Colorscience Sunforgettable. It is a powder sunscreen you use to reapply sunscreen over makeup. The product is not meant to be your main sunscreen, but it is good for reapplying to re-up your sunscreen during the…
  • @ Randy - I am really interested to hear what you come up with on this topic.   The video referenced above is the one I had found a while back.  Makeup artists HAVE TO sanitize their makeup in order to be able to use it client to client.  Keeping it…
  • I clean my makeup brushes every time I use them. I used to wash them once a week, but I found a better solution while watching a makeup artist named Wayne Goss on YouTube. He suggested getting 91% isopropyl alcohol, putting it in a small spray bottl…
  • I wish I knew the answer to that one, Sarah. I do have a comment though. While researching what might help my skin recover from the effects of using efudex for 21 days I came across astaxanthin. I have been taking it for about 3 months and it does s…
  • Physical sunscreens are not the most cosmetically elegant formulations in the world, but they work! I have stuck with Blue Lizard for Faces 30+. It seems to sink into my skin well and doesn't leave a white cast. My skin is naturally pale, but even I…
  • @ Randy - Did you ever get a definitive answer to the original question,  "How bad is lavender, really?" You were waiting to hear back from perfumer contacts and still looking for evidence from the last posts you had.
  • Thanks, Randy! Nice to be back!! 
  • The Beauty Brains posted a link on the forum quite some time ago with comedogenic ratings. The link is below. Petrolatum, mineral oil, and glycerine have a rating of zero, meaning they will not cause acne. Olive oil has a rating of two, on a scale o…
  • IF you are one of those who experience irritation with sulfates (that would be me), you definitely need to be careful of the types of silicones in the products you choose. Water based ones are fine, but the others will cause build up over time! Sara…
  • This may not be of any help. My favorite conditioner is Trader Joe's Nourish. It can be a bit of a problem for me to obtain, seeing as there are no Trader Joe's stores near me, but I stock up when I do travel near one.  I use it after shampoo on the…
  • It has always been my understanding that to keep sterling silver jewelry looking it's best the most important thing is to wear it. That keeps it from oxidizing and turning black. A quick internet search will show many easy ways to clean your jewelry…
  • I use extra virgin coconut oil in my hair weekly for deep conditioning.  :) For skin I use extra virgin olive oil. I am one of 'those' people. I use EVOO to clean makeup off at night and use no other cleansers, just the oil. I use it mixed in the b…
  • To me, this is old news. We have used "plain soap" for hand washing for years. Overuse of antibiotics and antibacterial products is concerning. If all those disease causing germs become resistant to the antibiotics we have the human race is in for a…
  • Mine dry on a towel beside the bathroom sink during the day or on a towel on the bed. I just make sure the bristles are angled downwards. Careful folding of the towel takes care of that. :)
  • I haven't had a problem with that myself. I just wash them bristles down, rinse well (holding sideways), blot with a towel and air dry them lying flat across a towel rolled up. I angle the bristles down while they are drying.  I do have a couple of …
  • According to my dermatologist the sunscreen goes on first.
  • @ Frizzle - It may be a fad, but I have to say it has worked for me.  I have to avoid sulfates because my scalp reacts badly to them nowadays. Because I avoid sulfates I need to avoid silicones, unless they are of the water soluble variety. My hair …
  • I use 91% isopropyl alcohol on synthetic makeup brushes to clean them. I keep it in a travel size spray bottle and spray the bristles after using the brushes each day and wipe them on a paper towel. Every couple of weeks I use either a mild hand soa…
  • I clicked only to make sure you had put a disclaimer in there somewhere.  ;)
  • Elena,  I did a google search and found this thread from the long hair community. I am not sure it will be of any help, but thought I would pass it along. http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/archive/index.php/t-11405.html
  • I have used regular salt mixed with EVOO - which happens to be a favorite of mine and used for many things. I found it to be more drying than a sugar scrub and more gritty . Or maybe it was just my perception of it?  
  • I have used brown sugar mixed with Extra Virgin Olive Oil with great success. I suppose you could use white sugar instead of brown, but it would be grainier. As with any scrub, be gentle with the skin on your face.  The brown sugar & EVOO mix is…
