I need assistance with color match smashbox studio skin 15 Hr
I am interested in this foundation but not sure about the colors online. I ama MAC NW 20. Right now I'm using Nars sheer glow Santa Fe but it's either a little too dark or its oxidizing on me.  I was color matched at a Sephora store for that one. I'm cool toned with redness and hyperpigmention that I need to cover on my cheeks.  The 1.1 looks a little light. The 2.1 looks too dark. (Darker than sante fe) and the one in the middle I think is too warm for me.  Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks Laura

Foundation Help!
I am wanting to get a different foundation because mine is a little too light for my skin in some lightings, but I'm having trouble trying to find my color online.  I know that when you're in store you can swatch some on your neck to see, but what about online?

Why is my foundation suddenly turning orange?
I have been wearing my color IQ matched liquid foundation for months with no problems, and suddenly in the last 3 days a few hours after getting to work I notice my face is orange. Not oompa loompa orange, but the foundation has an orange tint to it. It doesn't look like this when I put it on. I don't have anything new in my routine, so I applied my foundation with a brush instead of the beauty blender, and was still orange. Today I applied with my fingers, and left off my blush just to make sure that wasn't what was turning me orange. I'm still orange. I have pretty dry skin. Could it be that my foundation is old? Help?! What do I do?

What is the best long lasting primer for blemish prone combo skin?
I have combination skin that gets oily in the t-zone but when ever I have a blemish it gets super dry and creates flaky patches and I also get very dry on the outside of my face, around my nose and under my eyes. I also have large pores on my nose that I usually try to cover up and make sure make up doesn't get in there but it always does. I work in a office and rarely go outside but everyday my makeup comes off on my phone or smudges if I barely press on an itch. I finally found a make up that matches my skin tone (I'm a red-head with pale freckly skin) in the Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation (110=R220) and I love the coverage and the finish once I set it but even after setting it still rubs off during the day very easily. My make up looks good when I leave for work in the morning but when I get home that night it's patchy and has melted.    I've tried a lot of different make up primers and none of them really seemed to extend the wear of my make up. I've tried  -MUFE Step 1 Primer in Green (didn't really help color correct or keep my make up on longer) -MUFE Step 1 Primer in Smoothing (helped cover my pores on my nose and create a barrier but didn't extend the life of my make up)- -Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (made my face an oil slick) -Too Faced Hangover Primer (I LOVED how this made my face feel but it didn't help extend my makeup) -Benefit Porefessional (again helped with the pores but make up still melted off)   I've even tried the Urban Decay Oil Slick makeup spray which made my face really tight and uncomfortable and the Urban Decay All Nighter which I don't think made much of a difference. I use the RCMA no color powder to set my make up (which I really like because it doesn't make any dry patches look worse and it's not as thick feeling as MUFE HD Powder and doesn't have sparkles like the Laura Mercier).    If anyone could give me some advice to help all the work I put into making my makeup look good last until I get home I would really appreciate it.

Hello, In the youtube video when concealing hyperpigmented patches, you have just used corrector and foundation. You people did not use concealor.

Looking for a middle of the road foundation ($30-$36) for fair, dry/combination skin
I used Lancome and loved it but after a couple years i noticed my face was always flakey and it settled in my lines. I moisturize, use a primer, the works. I think my skin gets really weird in the changes of the season. I bought Lorac, and it really is hydrating but i'm not IN LOVE with it. I love the color but it doesn't stay on very long and my forehead tend to get oily looking throughout the day. I am looking for a foundation with great coverage for dry/combination skin. I am very fair and my skin tends to be acne-prone. but i think its due mostly to it being dry/irritated. Preferably middle of the road price...something less than $40.    also if you have any general skincare product faves let me know too   Thanks!

Foundation/BB creams?
  Hi guys! I was wondering if someone could help me out with finding a nice foundation or just recommend one. I am bellow the age of 18 and have normal/combo skin which leans more to dry skin than oily.  I am searching for a foundation or BB cream with medium coverage or light to medium just not full coverage basically. Any foundation recommendations would be nice but BB cream also because summer's coming and I prefer BB creams over foundation throughout the summer. I hope someone can help me out, anyway thanks!

Flaky Foundation
I've always had a problem with the foundation on my nose. Not only does it usually end up very patchy, but its very flaky and sometimes  sinks into my nose. But, my worst problem is this odd line that appears on my nose when i have foundation on it. I don't know if its from pores or what, but my foundation and powder always sinks into an odd line. If anyone knows what that line is or a solution to me problem, please let me know!! thank you.

Having a hard time picking between Nars All Day Luminous Foundation and Becca Ultimate Coverage Cream
Hello everyone! So I've been debating between these two foundations for the longest and I need to purchase one bottle before I head onto my trip to India..   My skin is mainly oily and I do have dark spots left from acne so coverage is a huge deal for me (which both of the foundations fulfill) I like that a little goes a long way with them as well. i really adore the coverage I get with Nars which is just a tiny bit better than Becca's but Nars sometimes leaves my skin looking extremely shiny. I really favor Becca's matte look. It is SO hard for me to decide. I am going to be in some really hot weather and I would need something that will last the day without having it smear or get very oily. I'd like to know you guy's opinion on which foundation works best and your experiences as well! Thank you so much.

MUFE MAT VELVET + too drying
Hello everyone! So the MUFE Mat Velvet + has been my holy grail foundation for the longest time! It blurs my imperfections and looks like an airbrushed/matte finish. However, I don't know if my skin has become more dry/sensitive but it has an oil absorbing formula and sometimes I feel like it just absorbs too much moisture from my skin. It also has fragrance in it which I  am pretty sensitive to. Does anyone have any other suggestions for a similar fragrance free foundation that is good for acne prone/sensitive skin?Thank you

Foundation for sensitive skin that won't accentuate fine lines?
I love Tarte BB Tinted Primer in Medium, but it seems to accentuate fine lines on my forehead so I can only use it on vacation in very hot/humid weather.    I am terribly sensitive to foundations. MUFE HD and Smashbox have both caused me severe painful acne that stopped when I discontinued them. I return most of all of my purchases at Sephora due to allergy but I can't find out what is causing it. I tried the tarte tinted moisturizer and it didn't look good on me - it accentuated imperfections (or maybe I was having a slight reaction to it.)   Is there another foundation similar to the Tarte one that I use that may work and not accentuate fine lines? The Sephora near me is small and their recommendations are limited due to lack of stock.

color correcting with concealer? any recommendations for foundation?
I need some help here. I found some color correcting pencils that take away dark spots, but I also use Dermablend concealer, which conceals my dark spots with no problem. I usually apply the concealer on first. I don't use a foundation because the foundation I have is too light for my skin, and just using Dermablend seems to be doing fine. But, How and when do you use these color correcting pencils? Are they used before you put on your concealer or after? Also, can someone give me some recommendations for foundation? My skin is sensitive but oily, if that helps.

Looking for recommendations for the perfect contour for my medium/tan skin
Hi guys!   So I'm trying to find the perfect contour product so I can have the chiseled cheeks look, without it looking ridiculous/overdone. I think I'd prefer a powder since my skin does get oily, but I'm open to all suggestions. I don't remember my color, but I use Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer in Ginger. My foundation is a mix of Tarte's 12 hour amazonian foundation in Tan Honey and Light Medium Honey. (Hope this gives you an idea of my complexion)   I've tried quite a few products and haven't had any success   Benefit Hoola: too red on me. Someone said it looked like my face was dirty even when blended. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil: It doesn't give much of a contoured look Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil: Too orange Nars Contour Blush in Paloma: I think it was too red...I can't remember.    Thanks for the recs guys!
