I recently purchase kat von d lock it foundation in M54. It seems to really oxidize on me. At first it seemed perfect and after a while it's orange. Should a go a lighter shade? I do not live close to a sephora so i just went with a shade I thought would work based on my current foundation.
I'm looking for a product to treat chest and back breakouts. I've tried switching my soaps to Cetaphil gentle bar soap, all natural Tea tree oil bar soap & Neutrogena Body Clear body wash. I've had some luck with the Tea tree oil soap but nothing that has completely cleared the breakouts. My breakouts are mild and nothing too serious but its frustrating when you want to wear a certain shirt but can't. I've looked at Peter Thomas Roth buffing beads and Murad Acne body wash but can't decided between the two. How often do I use the product and if I dont use it every day, what product should I use on the other days. I also read about how body puffs harbor bacteria and should not be used.
I have combination skin threw a dry phase . So all my powders look gross and unnatural . I was thinking of switching to liquid or tinted moisturizer but don't know where to start what do you recommend for a natural illuminating glow for this face of a mess?
I was just thinking....what is my favorite brand. And for me it changes...then I like one brand's makeup and another brand's skincare and so on. So what is/are your absolute top brand(s)? By category or overall. Mine change all of the time. Today: Makeup: Chanel (some of the best and some of the worst but I always come back to Chanel. Runner ups Nars (ditto) and Tom Ford (my new flirtation). Skin care: My korean brand obsession (I picked a country not a brand) and Algenist. Scent: Tokyo Milk. And you?
I recently brought Nars St Paul Vance duo eyeshadows and I have been in love with that shadow since and I would love to know what other Nars eyeshadows duos and single eyeshadows is a must have in my makeup collection. ( My skintone is 1y11 Nars Tahoe and I have dark brown eyes)
I'm having a lot of trouble finding a foundation that doesn't have a dark or orange-pink cast on my skin. For reference, I was recently "matched" at MAC to NC15 in Studio Sculpt though it seems darker and more orange than my natural skin tone. Blended out and covered with translucent powder, it is acceptable, but far from a seamless match. I went to Sephora and sampled several foundations recommended by a cast member. She suggested Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc which looks a bit tan relative to my skin, even blended out. I do own Nars Chantilly concealer and when I arrayed all my concealers and foundations along my arm for swatching, it was the only one that almost blended. (It was faintly darker and pinker than my skin.) I also sampled Urban Decay Naked Skin in 1, which was sheer on me but too dark, almost like a dark orange stain in contrast. I tried two shades of Girgio Armani Luminous Silk. The 4.5 was several shades too dark and very pink-orange looking and the 3.0 was slightly darker and more orange than my skin. I found the 3.0 was very similar in color and value to L'Oreal's True Match W1, which is a color I have worn before (slightly dark on me) but a formula I don't really like for my dry skin. In general I find foundations/concealers tend to oxidize a bit on me, and I am a little frustrated that sales associates keep recommending shades that are darker than my neck. Is there a reason for this? How much of a shade difference is acceptable? As for undertones, my hair is naturally very dark, my eyes are blue, and I look best in vivid, cool-toned colors. I have blue veins and my skin takes on a slightly gray cast in comparison to the foundations sampled above. But though I am cool-toned in general, my skin has an obvious yellow tint and very little pink or red. What color range and undertones would you suggest for foundation? Can a foundation really "match" if it has that orange-pink cast I mentioned?
I am looking for a new skin care regimen. I have combination skin and my main problem is clogged pores and blackheads all over. I want something that will solves my skin issue but that will not dry me out since i am already dry on the sides of my face while the center is oily. I am looking to find a face wash or cleanser, a toner, and a moisturizer. Please help me with recommendations. I have tried everything under the sun, even a dermatologist for years did not help me.
Hi, I'm having major issues with my under eyes. I have bags and dry skin under my eyes. When i apply concealor i have lines that show through my makeup. I am looking for a eye cream that can help hydrate and decrease puffiness and also and eye concealor that will help for coverage. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
Hi I recently went to a Sephora counter to get color match to the Armani Luminous silk foundation and I was told I was shade # 4 but I feel the foundation is a tad bit light on my skin and I would like to know what color should I choose if I where to purchase online I love the foundation though. For reference I normally wear a MAC NC25 or NC30 or a Booby Brown Skin Foundation # 3 also i have used YSL eclat luminous foundation in shade #BD40. I'm a light medium skin with yellow neutral undertones if that helps. Thank you for any help i can get.
Hey everyone! I've been looking for a foundation - I got matched instore to Nars luminous all day in Mont Blanc (2Y02), but I have fairly dry areas on my normal skin so I wanted a more dewy/satin or glowy foundation. I absolutely don't want matte! My question is, do you think the sheer glow in mont blanc is the same shade as luminous mont blanc? Plus, what is the best/most dewy/radiant/hydrating foundation out there? Thanks! <3 <3 <3
I'm a beginner in foundation, I do currently own the covergirl liquid foundation but I feel as if I need a powder foundation to set it? Do I use liquid foundation and then powder foundation or just powder foundation on its own? I need major help this is so overwhelming. Follow up question. I have oily-combination skin, so what is the best option for me with foundations?
I have the cream contour from Anastasia in light and im not sure how I should set it. Ive seen people set it with contour and highlighting powder but it seems to me that that's just contouring twice. I personally don't need my face to look that chiseled and am going for a more natural look. Preferably matte. Should I just be setting it with a setting spray? I have a matte finishing spray from NYX and also the MAC fixing spray. Or should I purchase a translucent setting powder to set my contour? Help!! xoxo
Highlighters and contouring are the talk of the season. I wanted to start a thread where everyone can list their skintone and highlighters they own/like for different occasions. It could be a useful resource for anyone looking for highlighters. Are you guys in? I will start. Skintone: Medium/ Mac NC30ish Highlighter Liquid- Becca Opal (Love it, most used), Benefit high beam (too light, good for fairer skintone) Cream- Benefit Watts Up (Good match, don't use it often) Powder- Kevin aucoin celestial powder in candlelight (Love it, most used)
Currently debating between Tarte Brazilliance vs. St. Tropez (Self-tanners). I have never self-tanned before, and I am extremely pale. My main concern is not looking orange and price. Main question: Can St. Tropez be applied to the face? If not, that will be the deal breaker for me as I cannot afford to go buy an additional face-tanner for $30. I know St. Tropez Dark would probably be the best color option because of the green color-guard base but the face application is still an issue. Thanks!
I just bought the new eyelash curler for round eyes on here. Anyone else try it and have tips? It was super weird so I feel like I'm missing a technique to use the gadget or I don't really have round eyes...
I was hoping you guys would know. I contacted Bobbi brown about where they get their squalane source for their moisturizers, like their eye cream, and they haven't gotten back to me for several weeks now. I'm really hoping they don't source it from shark liver....
I am 40 and have dry skin and fine lines/wrinkles. I am looking for a foundation that won't make me look more wrinkly and dry than I already do. Any suggestions for a foundation that will provide coverage without drying out my skin?
I'm looking for any information about the best brands and colors, I have very fair skin and brown eyes, to wear when having professional photos are being taken as I will be having engagement pictures being taken soon, I normally wear very little makeup and stick to neutral colors. I almost never wear lipstick/color as I can never find one that isn't sticky/clumpy or needs to be reapplied after an hour. Any input/opinions will be helpful!
I am on the primer hunt and I would love opinions! I need a face primer for very combination skin. I tried a sample of the Hourglass primer but I can't decide if I want to spend so much on it unless it is worth it. I am also looking for a good eye primer for oily hooded lids. I can't decide if I want the MAC 24 hr eye base or the Nars eye primer.
which tarte blushes and lipsticks would look good for my skintone (I'm a 1y11 Tahoe in Nars) also any recommendations for some nude and colorful lipsticks from other brands that would look good but not to bold.
I have a few questions about the sticks are they good for everyday use and Is the bronze shade better than just using a regular bronzing powder and what should I use to blend out the color beauty blender
How should makeup be properly removed? I don't want to over cleansed my face. I just want to make sure I'm removing all my makeup properly and that my skin isn't congested. Right now I use neutrogena face cleanser to remove my foundation and eyeliner I don't really wear eye shadow. Then bosica facial cleansing gel to clean my face then I use to derma e moisturizer. I don't think the neutrogena is really getting all the dirt and makeup up. I have dry skin
