I recently posted a review on the bareMinerals READY Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Powder. I did a review that was not yet done and I accidentally submitted it. I did another one that will be up soon but the unfinished one that was accidentally submitted is there and I want to delete it but I do not see an option to do so. Is there any way I can do that?
Whenever I finish doing my makeup, I look really white compared to the rest or my body and through out the day my contour doesn't look as good it just looks like a line and I use the kat Von d contour kit and I also use the urban decay setting spray... Any suggestions??
Hi everyone, I'm looking for advice on a foundation for dry/sensitive skin. My skin is easily irritated especially in the colder months. I have a good amount of redness as well and am acne prone. I also have pale skin and fluctuate between 1Y01 and 1Y02 in color IQ. I would say I have a neutral undertone. Any suggestions are welcomed !
Does anybody know a good foundation that works on really pale skin? I had that color ID thing done and the makeup it pulled up was four shades too dark for my skin (that thing should be discontinued it is so inaccurate). The sales girl directed be to the Bobbi Brown in Alabaster - and not only is it still too dark for my skin, but it is so cake like. It's supposed to be a buildable coverage foundation but even the thinnest layer is grossly thick and just plain looks bad. Any suggestions?
I'm looking for a foundation that won't set into my laugh lines. I'm 20 years old and haven't really dealt with this problem until this past year. I have combination skin and have a pretty good skin routine. Also, I could use a primer suggestion? I currently use the benefit 15 hour stick and I'm not sure how much I like it! I prefer a lighter foundation/tinted moisturizer. I am a huge fan of the Nars matte tinted moisturizer and that's what I use now!
I have normal/combination skin with normal cheeks and nose, dry mouth and eye area, and an oily forehead. But whenever I wear foundation, it completely dries out my face (especially my cheeks, mouth area, and eye area) and makes it feel really tight. I make sure to layer my skincare and put on moisturizer underneath, but I still feel dry. So far I've tried the Smashbox bb cream, Smashbox bb water, Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, and the Custom Cover fx drops mixed with the Maybelline blur and smooth primer (which I wear under all my foundations). Does anyone have any good hydrating primers or makeup tricks that could help with this? Or do you have any suggestions on lightweight light-medium coverage foundations I could try (preferably $50 and under with a decent shade range; I have dark skin)?
Hi everyone! I've been doing a lot of research online lately to try and find the best face makeup products for someone with dry skin. I wanted some recommendations from people who know the products, so here I am! I'm looking for a good concealer, foundation, and primer for someone with dry skin. Also, are there any moisturizers that you guys would recommend? I want something that doesn't leave an oily look. Thank you very much! xoxo Gracie **addition: i normally have dry skin, but it is even drier now because i am on a cream for acne. i find that sometimes when i put on my foundation using a sponge it pulls up dry skin on my face and ends up looking very cakey and flaky. wanted to add that just in case it's important!
I have been practicing makeup on people for a few years now and I do family and friend's halloween makeup every year. However, I just got a totally unexpected call and someone needs me to do their bridal makeup because their original makeup artist can't do it, completely last minute. I need to do it Saturday. I'll be running out to buy a few things later. I'm absolutely terrified because I've never done something so important, but I know this is a huge step that I need to take and I would be an idiot to pass it down. I would appreciate so much every single suggestion and tip possible. I know exactly how she wants her eye makeup. Please help me out with tips please! I'm so anxious.
I'm a 1Y05 and currently use Laura Mercier Flawless Finish Fluide in Ivory. I'd like to purchase the Laura Mercier mineral powder but can't figure out if Soft Porcelain or Real Sand would be the best match. Any advice?
I need a product that will cover a really dark small freckle or age spot under my eye, I have tried IT concealers, and many others, nothing helps. Can you suggest a full full coverage concealer/spot treatment that wont make me break out, I have oily and sensitive aging skin.
I feel like no matter what I do, any kind of liquid or cream makeup separates on my face throughout the day, leaving a splotchy finish, and almost like there are some spots where the foundation has rubbed off? It also ends up looking almost like the makeup is sitting 'on top' of my skin, if that makes any sense. Trying to buff it out only seems to make it worse. It is SO frustrating because I leave the house in the morning and love the way my makeup looks, but by noon it can be embarrassingly bad! I just turned 26, have very very fair, dry skin that is sensitive and prone to redness, but I take good care of it and generally think of myself as having 'good' skin. This problem happens if I exfoliate or don't exfoliate, if I prime or don't prime, if I moisturize or don't moisturize, if I set with powder, if I set with a spray, if I do both, etc. I have tried waiting 10 minutes to let my moisturizer sink in, then waiting another 10 to let my sunscreen sink in, I've tried the 'goss method' of lightly powdering after moisturizing/priming (this sometimes seems to help slightly). I've tried different moisturizers, primers, foundations, powders, and also different methods of application (BB, brushes, fingers,etc)... I'm at my wit's end. As far as I can tell I don't have any oil/water/silicone conflict issues, and lord knows I've tried so many different combinations of products and methods, I can't imagine that would be happening every time. I would SO SO SO appreciate any and all help or even just ideas-- I'm willing to try anything! I'm going to list my products used below (listing all the different things I've tried/in my arsenal-- I don't mean to say that I use them all at once). I'll be forever in your debt if you can help me solve this! Skincare routine: Wash at night with either Fresh Soy Cleanser or Mario Badescu Keroplast cream soap Image skincare 'vital c' serum, followed by Mario Badescu 'caviar night cream' and eye cream at night. In the morning I use the Mario Badescu 'caviar day cream', or have also tried Olay Regenerist or Olay luminous moisturizers. I've used lots of different sunscreens-- Neutrogena pure & free, Biore 50+ face milk, Cerave 50+ face, etc. Primers: I've used no primer, Smashbox photofinish, Tarte timeless smoothing primer, l'oreal magic lumi primer, and two different ulta brand primers (flawless face and another one) Foundations: I've used: Kat Von D Lock it Illamasqua Skin Base Missha BB CoverFX Liquid Foundation A bunch of drugstore ones I should note that foundations are the trickiest for me to switch up, as I'm super pale and have a hard time finding stuff that matches. Concealers: Don't know if this super matters or not, but I've used: Kat von d lock it creme Nars creamy radiant CoverFX blemish clearing concealer Tarte shapetape concealer Tarte creaseless concealer As far as setting powders, I've used both pressed (ELF translucent, MAC Fix+, NYX pressed powder) and loose (Makeup forever translucent, bare minerals orginial, bare minerals mineral veil, etc.). I've also used Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, NYX dewy finish setting spray, Smashbox Primer Water, & Mario Badescu Rose water spray. I hope all of this information is helpful, and I'll love you forever if you're able to even attempt solving this for me! Thank you so much!
So I recently started using UD's All-Nighter Foundation. It's the most perfect match to my skin tone I've ever found and I love that it takes so little to get really good coverage. It is definitely NOT an all-day makeup right now though. I think it might be my primer. I love Becca's Backlighting Primer and it worked great with my old foundation, but it's water-based and the foundation is silicone-based. I have a feeling it is making my foundation slip and run (it's supposed to be waterproof, but the slightest amount of moisture and you can see it run off). Any suggestions for a similar primer that's more compatible?
Hi there - I have the Urban Decay Naked Flush in the color Naked. I love this product but unfortunately I already ran out of the highlighter but have plenty of the blush and bronzer. Is there one you recommend that will go? Please let me know. Thank you. BB
HI, I am going away next week and I am in search for a foundation that looks great in flash photography. I currently use Vitalumiere Aqua (Chanel) and I am quite happy with it but I look awful in pictures. I have very sensitive skin that tends to be on the dry side and I tend to break out with new products. I tried the new MUFE water blend foundation and it made my face greasy, and it made my face look very pale in flash photos. I did love the feel of it. Can you recommend any products that are: -lightweight -medium coverage -wont cause me to break out -looks great in flash photos. Thank you so much!
I was a perfect match in the old Make Up For Ever Face & Body with 2 Porcelain. Is there a shade in the new Water Blend that would be the same? Also, is there much difference between the new and old formula? From the description I'd expect the new version to be dewier, would that make it a bad choice for oily/combination skin?
I have big pores and my face gets oily throughout the day, but I have tried many different primers, foundations, and setting powder and my makeup still oxidizes and my pores become extremely visible in a few hours. What am i doing wrong? What do I try next to keep my makeup lasting longer and my pores not visible as the day goes on?
