For literally months I was on the hunt for the Lorac Pro Palette at my nearest Ulta, each time I drove the miles out they were sold out. Yes, I could have ordered online but nothing brings me greater satisfaction than buying it in store and already having it in my hands … so I can go play with it. A few weeks ago I decided to go to Ulta for a small haul, lo and behold when I hovered to the Lorac display there was the Rocking Red Hot Pro Set

Super moisturising mask or night time face lotion recommendations? My skin can get a bit oily but it's very prone to dryness. And I exfoliate regularly.. I don't know what to do

Some super moisturizing moisturizers are

  • Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream for Sensitive Skin ($12)
  • Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream ($13)
  • Philisophy Hope In a Jar ($40)
  • Eucerin Calming Creme Daily Moisturizer ($8)
  • CeraVe Moisturizing Cream ($13)
  • Clinique Moisture Surge ($37)
  • First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ($12)

As for masks try DIY masks with ingredients like oatmeal (soaked in water or milk not dry), egg whites, olive oil, honey, plain yogurt and avocado. You can mix up the ingredients like oatmeal and honey or plain yogurt and egg whites pretty much many any mask you’d like. All those ingredients are very soothing and moisturizing :)

What're your favorite foundations? Drugstore and Highend. I have combination skin with only getting oily in my t-zone and normal to dry skin everywhere else.

I have that skin type as well!

I like to use a good intense moisturizer at night and exfoliate weekly to handle my dry areas and I use oil controlling primers/moisturizers/foundations in the day time to handle my dry areas. This way my dry spots won’t be irritated when using more “drying” products during the day so my t zone will stay shine free. I also like to use translucent powders because they really help control shine but arent too matte so my normal/dry areas still look nice :)

Some foundations I looove are

  • Urban Decay Naked
  • Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast 
  • NARS Sheer Matte
  • Garnier BB Cream for oily skin (not the normal to dry skin one)
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear

Is there any cheap palettes for contouring?

Coastal Scents makes a great cream concealer/foundation palette with 10 shades from light to dark that you can use to cream contour fro around $10. Great for makeup artists!

They also make a blush/bronzer/highlight powder palette if you like contouring with powder more

Havent seen any from the drugstore yet! 

Any tips on how to minimize the appearance of pores, especially on and around the nose?

Check out my post on that here :)

In my in depth post I discuss how you can make your pores seem smaller with skin care and makeup! 

I have really bad skin and it always looks like I'm wearing a ton of makeup because I need to cover it up. How could I achieve a look that doesn't look like I'm wearing tons of makeup but I'm still covered? (if that makes sense)

I have a whole post on that actually :)

Are there any dupes for Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel?

Asked by

I found the Boots Expert Shine Control Lotion to be pretty much identical in texture. It’s around $6 at Target but you can buy it on Amazon as well :)

What's a good drug store foundation and powder that's close to MACs studio fix??

Asked by

Loreal True Match powder is super similar! It has a very similar finish to the Studio Fix powder and has great coverage as well.

As for the Studio Fix foundation i’d say Revlon Colorstay is the most similar :)

can you recommend any moisturizer for oily yet dehydrated skin?

Thats me! 

I love love love Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (not the lotion one). It sinks in super fast so it doesnt make you any more oilier and makes your skin feel so smooth and hydrated. Great base for under makeup!

Do you know of a primer that fills pores but for dry skin? I've tried the porefessional but it makes me too matte

Try ELF’s Mineral Infused Face Primer super affordable at $6 at Target. It has the same silicone like texture that fills in pores but the minerals in it makes it a little more like a gel texture so it’s not as dry :)
