I don't understand Lancome's shade range. I have yellow undertones, not orange and a good color match for me is makeup forever ultra hd in 127. I also use BECCA's ultimate complexion creme in the shade nude. I have medium-light tan skin! I've seen swatches of 320 W Bisque and it looks really dark, so I'm not particularly interested in that shade for myself
I wear my sunscreen from Paula's Choice on mornings and on afternoons before I leave the office. I live in the Caribbean so the weather is generally sunny and around 33 degrees celcius everyday. My face especially has darkened compared to the rest of my body. I am a medium tan shade with yellow undertones and my face has now become brown toned so when I apply foundation there is a different tone on my face from from neck and body. How can I lighten my face once again? Are there any products I can use that do not contain Hydroquinone?
I have oily skin(along with good size pores lol) and I was wondering which one of these would work better: Milk Makeup Blur Stick or Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick?? I currently use Benefit matte Porefecting primer and felt like trying something new. Taking recommendations also if none of the above work for oily skin! Thanks!
I am currently new to makeup, but it doesn't turn out very well. I have been using drugstore products mostly to see how my skin reacts to certain products. I use liquid foundation with powder for my contour, but it is always cakey. Any suggestions?
I usually have oily to combo skin with minimal breakouts. However, recently my skin has been feeling quite dry in the morning and oily by the end of the day. I have many dry patches and acne on my forehead and I was hoping you all could give me you favorite skin care products to help get rid of acne if you have sensitive skin. I usually have oily skin however, I would like skincare products for oily skin with acne and sensitive and skincare products for sensitive to dry to acne skin. I'm sorry my skin type is strange Thank you so much!!!!
Hello All!! I have oily to combo skin however, recently I have just gotten many dry patches and I have the born this way foundation by too faced and it sticks to my dry patches and it has WAYYYY too much of a yellow to golden undertone. I am in the shade light beige. I need help finding a foundation that doesn't stick to my dry patches and doesn't have a yellow undertone i have more of a cool pink undertone. Thank you so much!!
I am sooooo pale and it's so hard to find a foundation. I've been matched for a few (Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation in 0.5 and It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ in Fair) and I think they look fine in the store, but after a few uses I realize they're not the right skin tone at all, but to my luck I'm already using the lightest shade. I also have a problem with little fine lines in between my eyebrows, forehead, and my smile lines that always seems to crease no matter what. I also have freckles that I like to cover up. What are some medium-full coverage foundations that has crazy pale shades and will NOT crease!!
I have dark circles and bags under my eyes that I have had for as long as I can remember. Have yet to find something that works. What would you recommend to help that? Also need something affordable but works. Thanks.
I am light to Medium skin with brown spots (freckles) I have very dark circles under my eyes. The skin under eyes and all over is very very DRY!! My current YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT - Radiant Touch does not have any #s or markings on stick. What color should I get for under eyes concealer mostly?
Hello! I am helping my mom find a new foundation. She has fair skin and is in her 50s. Her favorite foundation was the Stila Illuminating Foundation in the shade 20 watts (discontinued!!). She is looking for a foundation that is medium coverage, but is illuminating and brightening. She has combination skin, currently more on the dry side due to the cold weather. Last time she went foundation shopping, she picked up Clinque Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer in shade 1 Linen- but she doesn't love it. Have you tried anything that you like or recommend? Thank you!
Hi, I'm needing some help deciding what foundation to buy. Lily Lolo Mineral was my go to foundation because it has been the only foundation powder/BB cream didn't cause my sensitive, breakout prone, dry patch prone skin to freak out with itching/redness, acne, and oily/rough patches (yeah, I get both at once when I have a reaction: usually oily redness on the forehead/nose, itchy dry on my cheeks, and cystic acne on my chin/jawline; it's a bummer), but their customer service finally drove me away. Before that I used ColorScience, which was good but after a few years it started to cause a reaction. I'm very outdoorsy, so I have to have SPF (but can only tolerate zinc and titanium, the other stuff causes a horrible rash) -- and have to battle super dry skin in the winter and sweaty/oily in the summer (which means different foundation formulations usually), and my skin is very light in the winter but really tans quite darkly in the summer. So, I also have trouble with getting a correct match (I mixed medium neutral with light olive tones and that seemed to work well -- but that means I have to buy at least 4 foundations: one combo for the winter, one for the summer -- and I'd like to not have to buy that much foundation). I have a hard time with foundation, as you can see! I love the customer service at Sephora, and so far am in love with your cleansing waters/milk (thus far they have been very good to my skin) so if you have any products that might work for me please let me know!
I am in desperate need of a foundation that is going to last me 12+ hours. I have tried estee lauder double wear and I didn't like how it made my skin look. I want something that looks natural and that won't make my skin look oily. I have a problem with foundation just melting right off my face because my skin is so oily. Suggestions??
I'm trying to order the AB dipbrow pomade but I'm not sure what color to get my hair right now looks abit hombre brown on top n the other half it looks blondish/ reddish so I have no clue what color would be perfect for me
Hi! I recently tried Cover FX Natural Finish Foundation (G20). I really love the color match (doesn't oxidize), and the coverage and finish is nice. My only problem is, I cannot get to set right! I have tried the Becca Ever-Matte and Cover FX Matte primers, and set with the setting powder. It still creases around my nose and eyes, and tends to start breaking apart after 3 hours or so. I have sensitive combination skins (dry and redness around cheeks, but very oily t-zone). So there are only so many brands out there that I could tolerate. Anyone have any tips and tricks? Maybe this is not the right foundation for me. If so, any recommendation for another foundation? I really want something that is good for my skin. For reference, I have pale asian skin, so not all brands can easily match my color. Thanks!
My tanning shade foundation in mac is nc35 (which is the lighter one) And also Mac Nc40. I have no idea which shade to pick. I want the All Day Luminous Nars Foundation. But, i don't know which one will be a better fit. Barcelona or Syracuse? Ive never tried mars foundations, so therefore i don't know which shade. Nor, do I have a location to get matched near by.
Hello, I'm trying to find myself the perfect fragrance which describes me. Its a mix of sweet cotton candy, warm cinnamon, and the the out doors, like hiking. If any of you have a suggestion I'd like to know. Thanks you.
Does anyone get a white cast/flashback with laura mercier translucent powder? I see many women of color in deeper shades than I am using it and it seems just fine, unlike when I try. Mind you, I don't leave it on for long and use it sparingly...Please help???!!
