I'm so excited my first KA product has finally arrived. I tested it out last night, it is SO pigmented and feels a little bit dry. My question is, what tool do you usually use to apply it? Do you mix it with any other moisturizer or serum? If you do, please let me know which moisturizer works well this foundation? Thank you!
I am: low maintenance, quite busy, and looking for the perfect match. No luck with makeup counter matchmakers, who insisted the had found the one for me, only to discover in natural light that they were far too pink or neutral for my yellow-toned skin. You are: easy to apply, oil free and non-irritating w spf. and although size doesn't matter(much), longish lasting most definitely does. Since my makeup regimen is composed entirely of powder+mascara, it's important that you're 'the one'. Any advice on who to consult, where to go or what to buy would be fabulous since (despite the Clinique ladyinsisting that "all Asian girls want to look more white!") I haven't given up hope you're out there
I am trying to find a sheer coverage foundation, with a natural finish. I want the foundation to just even out my skin tone. I do not like tinted moisturizer, I tried the Nars Sheer Glow, but it look like a medium to full, so i did not like it.
I've been on the market for a contour kit for a while now, its practically the only item i do not own. I was excited for the ABH contour kit to come out, since they have two shade options, but i've only heard mixed reviews. Maybe my mind is just intimidated by the apparent darkness of some of the darker shades in some of these kits, but has anyone else had any luck?
"'As painters always start with a smooth, perfectly prepped canvas to ensure a perfect end result, makeup artists need unified, flawless even-textured skin as a the starting point for perfect makeup results every time. ' -Dany’s words. Discover the first step of your complexion routine for a perfect result: STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER . Like a makeup booster, the new primers prepare the skin for a perfect complexion just like a painter prepares his canvas with a basecoat. STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER is an equalizer that can balance out every skin to provide perfect texture and the best possible base to apply foundation. The new generation primer improves the skin texture with a lighting or transparency effect, without changing the carnation; it acts like a brightness modulator. The 6 formulas answer to 6 issues: shining, dehydration, dryness, redness, dilated pores and fine line, lack of radiance. STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER is an entire range which allows tailor-made primers for each woman." Has anyone tried these yet? Looks like there's something for everyone. I recently switched from my old Smashbox primer to Too Faced Primed and Poreless, and I feel like it just emphasizes my pores. (Strange, because it gets such great reviews, but I swear they weren't this big when I used my old stuff.) I'm interested in the Smoothing Primer. I'm sure by the time my No Buy is over, there will be plenty of reviews, but I'm curious now!
What is a good face primer and foundation for oily skin and uneven texture (acne pitted scars) I am tired of foundations making my scars appear larger and more noticeable. I am using several products from the Nude Skincare line and that has helped a lot but now I just need to find the right primer and foundation to pair with it. I know that nothing I put on is going to make me appear flawless but there has to be some makeup out there that helps minimize the appearance of my scars. My current routine in the am is: nude skincare serum, Sephora matte moisturizer w/spf, Clinique super primer (I just received a sample of this), Lancôme pore minimizer (I recently purchased this to use just for filling in the pitted scars that are mainly on my cheeks) and MAC pro-long wear foundation.
I have pale skin with cool undertone (Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation 42). I need something that won't glitter like crazy but give me a nice shine. I was thinking about getting the Shiseido Medusa Highlighter (which I'd have to order in Canada since it was discontinued). Thanks.
Hi! In the Nars concealer, I'm the shade Honey. It's a bit too pink for me and I want to try out the MUFE concealer, mostly because it has a WAY better shade selection. I'm normally light-medium and have constantly rosy cheeks, so the concealer needs to be around neutral-warm for it to be natural-looking at all! Any help? -Katie
Is matte or dewy / glow make up in for 2015? Right now i use do not use foundation, but use some bronzer / blush with a little face powder over it to set. Its more of a matte look. If a dewy look is in, how would i get that? Do i need to drop the face powder? I feel like it does keep the blush bronzer better throughout the day. Thanks
You no longer carry Hourglass Oxygen Foundation Mineral Powder No. 3 0.46 oz , is there another product you recommend with color matching? I don't have time to get to a store any time soon and I'm quickly running out! Thank you.
I am needing help determining which tinted moisturizer to try on my sensitive, acne prone skin that is just a combination of everything under the sun. I want something that has sunscreen in it as I will be out in the sun a fair amount these next few months.
Has anyone used this foundation before? Unfortunately, it's not sold at Sephora (yet? here's hoping) but I am getting samples of it in my never-ending quest to find the perfect foundation for me. It is a cream foundation, which I have never used before, and I don't know how best to apply it. I have heard that you should use a moist beauty blender. If that's true, that's fine, but I'll have to go buy one because I don't have one (I usually use foundation brushes). Does anyone know if a foundation brush works for this type of foundation? Or fingers? I kind of hate the idea of buying a beauty blender to test the foundation, just in case I don't like it and now I have a beauty blender that I probably won't use if I end up with a liquid foundation. But if that is the best/only way to apply that type of foundation, I'll buy it because I want to give the foundation a good shot.
I was just doing a questionnaire.. and realized that I don't have a foundation on my favorites list that doesn't oxidize.... nars sheer glow, guerlain lingerie de peau, lancome teint miracle and cushion foundations find a way to oxidize on my skin .. I've tried the UD naked and it doesn't look so good on my skin.. I have combination skin, and is looking for something light weight and natural looking with some glow please help
Everytime I kiss my boyfriend, my foundation rubs off on his face. He's black and i am a light nc25 (mac pro longwear) any suggestions on a foundation that doesnt rub off? I need a medium to full coverage, that wont dry out my skin.
I picked up a sample of this in Fiji which swatched very nicely on my hand. I tried it on my face this morning and was horrified at the yellow mess looking back at me. My first thought was "OMG I HAVE TO WASH THIS OFF" which was followed by "OMG I DON'T HAVE TIME TO WASH THIS OFF". I never had that bad of a reaction to a foundation before - that it was so hideous I had to wash it off. Then I thought I'll try to cover it up with a bit of my Lingerie de Peau. Within the few seconds that all of this was running through my mind something amazing happened - the foundation melted beautifully into my skin and blended perfectly with my skin tone. I have no idea how it could have gone from the ugly yellow that went on to a perfect match for my skin but there you have it. I still think I might try a better color match because it's still a bit off-putting to see that much yellow on my NW20 skin tone, but just wanted you guys to know that this foundation does transform. And the result is gorgeous. Flawless and beautiful. I went from hating it more than any foundation ever to loving it. Just FYI. :-)
Hello, I am wondering about a color match for: KEVYN AUCOIN The Sensual Skin Enhancer. Currently, I own MUFE HD in 118, which I love, but I want to try this foundation. Any suggestions on the best color match?
I'm currently looking for a new face primer to try out. I've been using the Smashbox Pore Minimizing primer and, although, I do love the primer to tends to leave me dry patches sometimes. I do have oily skin. I have tried the Benefit POREfessional before and I really do like that one as well, it just leaves me feeling greasy. Any suggestion on what primer I should try out?
