my foundation keeps separating on my face throughout the day!!
I start off my daily routine by priming my face with the pur correcting prep and perfect primer. Then I go in with my too faced born this way foundation and blend it out with a damp beauty blender. I conceal my under-eyes, chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose and center of forehead using my naked skin concelear. Lastly I set my face using the laura mercier translucent setting powder with a damp beauty blender. When I get home from school (8 hours) my foundation has separated and is patchy. I have combination skin also. Is it because I don't wash, mostiurize and exfoliate in the mornings? I'm good at washing my face at night, but not in the mornings. Is it because of that or is it my foundation or primer?  help please my foundation looks terrible!!

barepro powder foundation
Hi there! I've always worn liquid foundations and am thinking of trying out the barepro powder foundation.  I have a lot of redness and i'm thinking if I pair it with a green color corrector I should be good to go on those mornings i'm trying to get out of the house quickly.  I'm 128 in MUFE Foundation (stick and HD) and am trying to figure out what my color match would be for the barepro foundation.  Also, even though I have combo-oily skin, sometimes powder foundation looks cakey on me, i'm hoping with this one that won't be the case!   Thank for your help!

Dry combination skin - foundations oxidize and become powdery cakey
I need some help with my foundations.  I currently have ELDW, Nars sheer glow, Smashbox photo finish, MUFE stick foundation and Korean brand cushions.  I have dehydrated dry combination skin with not many other skin problems except when I'm sensitive to a product and breakout.    I make sure to moisturize well at night, use a clarisonic, exfoliate weekly, and do my best to make a good base for the makeup in the mornings.  I use Skinceuticals physical fusion and JM argan oil sunscreen interchangeably depending on my skin type, and use smash box pore minimizing, EL illuminating, and MUFE hydrating primer also interchangeably.  I even tried WG method of applying finishing powder after primer and before foundation to prevent foundation from oxidizing and extend wear time with no success (my foundations looked powdery, patchy, cakey, dry and uneven all at once no matter what tool I used)    what can I possibly do? what foundations can I try and what tools can I look into?  I was thinking  LM smooth powder foundation - some people say that it still oxidizes on oily skin types but I was hoping a powder foundation would last longer  TF born this way foundation - some people also say the same things about oxidizing  It cosmetic flat foundation brushes - none of the dense buffing brushes in the past have worked on my skin (Bobbi Brown full coverage foundation, Marc Jacobs face 2 brush)  MUFE 122 brush - hoping a stippling brush would be a better alternative for my dry skin  using powder foundation as setting powder

Introducing Wanderlust Powder Foundation!
Hi Beauty Talkers! We're delighted to welcome the newest addition to our multitasking makeup essential family, Wanderlust Powder Foundation.  We’re so excited to share our journey in creating this product.   Why powder foundation?   Co-founder Divya Gugnani: Pretty much immediately after we launched our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation we got calls, emails, social media posts, and a barrage of inquiries about when we would have a powder foundation. A powder foundation? I didn’t get it. I hadn’t used powder foundation on my face since I was 16 and struggling with t-zone issues and teenage acne. But Lindsay was a believer….   Co-founder Lindsay Ellingson: I've always used powder foundation to mask my hyperpigmentation which, for me, is caused by melasma. I've struggled with it for years. When we launched Wander Beauty it became my mission to develop a talc-free powder that would cover imperfections without looking cakey, my goal was to create a powder foundation that actually looks like skin!   But really, is it full coverage?   LE: The first thing you will notice about our powder is the luxurious ultra-fine feel which translates to the most natural looking, flawless complexion. It's so lightweight on your skin but highly pigmented so it doesn't feel like a mask. One swipe of our foundation and my pigmentation is covered. Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty not cover it!   But is it a multitasker? Is it an essential?   DG: At Wander Beauty we focus on creating multitasking makeup essentials and for real this is... Any special ingredients?   LE: We knew we wanted to make it talc-free so it wouldn’t look ashy or give a white cast in photos. We also enriched it with our favorite skin-loving ingredients from around the globe:   Aloe Leaf Extract (Korea) – moisturizes skin and restores suppleness Hibiscus Flower Extract (France) – evens skin tone, increases elasticity, and protects against free radical damage Honeysuckle Flower Extract (Korea) – has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties Jojoba Esters (United States) – promotes skin healing with antimicrobial properties Safflower Flower Extract (Korea) – contains linoleic acid to unclog pores and stimulate regeneration of new cells   What about the applicator? DG: I can’t stand dirty, makeup-filled sponges that break apart. So, we created an antimicrobial rubicell sponge in Korea that deposits our silky powder evenly for full coverage. It’s reusable and easy to wash with antibacterial soap and water.     How do you wear it?   DG: I wear Wanderlust in Medium on clean moisturized skin on days when I have meetings from morning to night or when I have a big event. It lasts till I take it off and gives me coverage while still looking natural. It’s my skin, only with an airbrushed filter ;-)   LE: I like to wear Wanderlust in Light as a finishing powder over our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation stick. It's gives me just the right amount of coverage with a radiant finish.The great thing about our powder is that it's so versatile, it looks just as great as a foundation on its own for a more matte finish.     Here's the link:  http://www.sephora.com/wanderlust-powder-foundatio n-P411529?skuId=1856848&icid2=products%20grid 41152... Have you tried it yet? Share your thoughts below!

UD All Nighter -shade match?
  Since I can't get to a Sephora for awhile, here's the issue I'm having:   In the UD All-Nighter foundation, I tried on the shade 9 at Ulta. It looked like a great match. Bought it. Haven't worn it all day yet so I don't know if it will oxidize.   My ColoriQ matches at 1y09 and 2y10. The match for UD All Nighter is 7.75! If you look at the chart 1y09 and 2y10 aren't that dissimilar. Could I really be that many shades off?

I have a couple of the Stila Convertible color, and like them alright, but I am looking for something really peachy, but not shimmery/glittery.   I like to layer a powder blush on top of a cream, or just a little dab of cream blush on my cheeks for low-maintenance days.

Your favorite green color correcting primer?
So far I was looking at Clinique's Redness Solutions Daily and Smashbox's Photo Finish Color Correcting Primer in obviously green. Clinique's primer (by reviews) doesn't seem to be as popular as Smashbox's, but the reviews seem to be the same between each product. A lot of people are saying that the products either don't fully correct the redness, or cover very little. I have mild rosacea and have very pale skin. I use the palest foundation color. I don't mind if the products don't cover up the redness completely because I plan to apply a full face of makeup after the primer anyways, but I am curious of the opinions of these two products, OR if there is another green primer (doesn't have to be in Sephora) that is really good. I also care a lot if the primer doesn't mess with my normal routine, as in, it doesn't make my liquid foundation (Bobbi Brown) harder to spread, or it doesn't last throughout the day. My redness is between mild and medium, so any recommendation that covers that greatly will be appreciated! Links to both primers: http://www.sephora.com/redness-solutions-daily-pro tective-base-spf-15-P201441?skuId=1066737&icid2=pr ... http://www.sephora.com/photo-finish-color-correcti ng-foundation-primer-P78811?skuId=1350024&icid2=pr ...

Sephora Collection 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation Question
I'm using SEPHORA COLLECTION 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation.  While I'm loving the long-wearing, easily-blendable, "second skin" benefits of it, I'm not liking how long it takes to clean my foundation brushes after using this foundation.   I use Sephora Collection Pro Foundation #47 brush to apply this foundation (personal preference).  I clean these brushes (I have seven of them) with baby shampoo once a week (hence having seven of them).   Cleaning this foundation from these brushes takes much too long!  I spent a lot of money for these foundation brushes!! I'm scared that one day I won't be able to fully clean my brushes of this foundation and they'll be permanently stained!   I started soaking the used foundation brushes in a baby shampoo/water combination for about 20 minutes (just the bristles) to loosen up the foundation a bit.  It only slightly helps with cleaning.   Any tips or tricks or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
