I'm feeling quite ghostly lately with my foundation (kat von d light 44). I actually like this foundation for summer as I find it a bit drying and i'm an oil slick except for winter. I'm (obviously) light skinned but have the potential to tan Anyhoo, i'm wondering if I could just use some bronzer over top, i really don't want to get a whole new foundation. I've been looking at the 'hoola' set that comes with the liquid bronzer too, maybe i can mix that straight in with the foundation? Also looking at the 'tarte' set with the chocolate bronzer in it. Anybody have some experience with these products? Or can recommend another solution?
MJ Coconut Primer + KatVonD Lock-It Foundation (liquid) + bareMinerals bareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer. Yyaaahhhss!! Wow, what a difference the damp beauty blender (just bought my first one) & the Marc Jacobs primer made! Barely used any Lock-It. Treated the blender like a cushion compact applicator & just kept patting. The Lock-It foundation applied in such a lovely thin, even layer. So natural looking (but still had coverage). I applied the bareSkin bronzer serum also with the blender (barely damp) as a true bronzer just where sun would hit. So, so pretty!! Loved it!! I did use a pat or two of KatVD Lock-It powder foundation over 2 small patches of melasma on my chin, and Guerlain Les Violettes pressed powder to set undereyes, and to barely add a finish very sheerly in t-zone.
Hi BTers, So I am trying to find the best suitable foundation for my skin. I've tried going to Sephora in store, but I always walk out in disappointment. My skin is combination (forehead on the oily side, and chin and cheeks on the extremely dry side to the point of flaking off and cracking). For my skin care routine: I use AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, Fresh Soy Cleanser, Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream, and Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil and the GlamGlow blue moisturizing mask twice a week. I also have Rosacea which is controlled by a prescribed topical cream. I don't know what foundation I could use because I've tried MUFE, Too Faced, Kat Von D, Marc Jacobs, Tarte and Urban Decay. Most of these foundations start to go apart or it intensifies my flaking. I use for primer either as Too Faced Hangover Primer or the MUFE Hydrating and Nourishing primer. I use either a beauty blender or a foundation brush. If anyone can help with either techniques or products, I will be extremely appreciative!
Hi people! I wanted to know some suggestions for a light foundation for dry skin over the summer? I am into very glowy, radiant skin. Oh, and I want to make sure it looks good in flash photography ! Thank you!
It doesn't matter what foundation or primer I use, my foundation ALWAYS starts to separate on my face after a short few hours, starting on my nose area and spreading to my mouth,chin & forehead. I don't know what I am doing wrong. PLEASE HELP ME
I have been using Cover FX N40. I was using translucent powder until I went into this public bathroom one day and my face looked like I had white dots all over it from the powder settling in my pores. Then I switched to a pressed powder. I live in a remote part of Alaska and cannot go into a store for help. Someone help me please....
Please help me find a new full coverage foundation and compact powder. I have been using Cover FIX, New shade and a translucent loose powder. My pores are on the larger side and I noticed that it seems to sit in my pores. I want a full cover look, that evens my skin tone and also diminishes my pores. I am oily in the T zone and live in a humid climate in southeast Alaska.
anyone knows how does Too Faced | Born This Way Foundation works on combination/dehydrated skin? I really like how it covers blemishes without looking heavy! I have oily skin and but dry patches on my cheekbones, in between my brows and chin. Also, i live in a country with tropical rainforest climate. How does this foundation performs in heat and high humidity? Please feel free to recommend any products (primer, foundation, setting sprays) suitable for me!
I have very oily skin and I have issue with my makeup. I have been through countless different brands of foundation and haven't been able to find one that can withstand the oil my face is producing. By the end of the day my face has become so oily that my makeup has basically either fallen off my face or caked up so bad that it looks awful. On top of all these people ask me whether I'm in my 50's. I'm 44 years old and because of my work pressure, my face looks tired and there are wrinkles under my eyes and forehead. I have heard botox treatment helps to regain the lost youthfulness so I'm thinking of undergoing the procedure from a cosmetic dermatology centre in Richmond Hill ( http://www.thecentrefordermatology.com/procedures/ anti-aging/botox-cosmetic/ ). Can I get botox in oily skin? Can anyone recommend a good makeup for oily skin? Thanks!!
Hi, I have a question regarding my skin. What do you guys recommend as primer, moisturizer, etc to apply before I do my my make up. The biggest problem is the area in my nose where my make up literally gets really patchy and it removes within an hour of finishing my make up. I have try several primers and setting sprays so what is your best advice? Thanks a lot!
Hello Everyone! I live super far away in the Yukon, no Sephoras in miles! Last time I was in a big city I bought a Make up Forever Face & Body foundation that matched my face absolutely perfectly. I placed an order online since I almost ran out, and there is nothing in the container that says the name of the shade, just a #12 etched in the glass on the bottom. So I chose shade #12 from the website, but what arrived is about 4 shades too dark, although it does say #12 on it! The worst part is that it takes forever to arrive here on the mail, and I am virtually out of makeup, and no idea what my true color match is yet. My skin is somewhat fair but not completely pale, more on the yellowish undertone category than rosey, but I am most definitely not a caramel shade! HELP!!
My skin behaves badly with any product containing silicones. I've benn using loose mineral powders with good result, but I find them messy and time consuming. I've been researching, and the cover fx pressed mineral powder fits what I need, but I was wondering if anyone had suggestions of other pressed powders to try? Drugstore works too.
Hi fellow beauty lovers! I am looking for a new bronzer for the summer time! I already own benefit by hoola which i love and is my current go to bronzer but I am just looking for something new for the summer! I own Laguna by Nars but feel like I may be allergic to some of the ingredients in it so i am staying clear of it. I also own chocolate by too faced and enjoy using that too sometimes but would like something different. I would prefer something powder rather than liquid as I have oily skin with acne scars/mild blemishes and have been told by my dermatologist to stay away from liquid products. Anything labeled non-comedogenic would be a major plus as well! Basically just looking for a powder bronzer for safe for oily skin! Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much! P.S My skin tone/current foundation color is Clearly Pearl in bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation. http://www.sephora.com/bareminerals-blemish-ready- foundation-P388677?skuId=1703016&icid2=D%3Dc6%3Apr ...
Hello! I'm looking for help finding two separate products! First, I'm searching for a foundation that's sheer to medium coverage for oily, fair skin. I'm currently using Lancome Teint Idole 24 hr wear foundation, and by noon it's sliding off my face. It's also way too heavy and full coverage for me. I'm looking for something that feels light and can help even out my skin tone and tone down some redness in my cheeks. And that has some staying power without getting cakey. I currently don't use a primer after I moisturize, just because I haven't had much success with them. I've tried ones by smashbox and hourglass and they just seem to make me oilier. Second, I'm also looking for a great all-in-one kind of product. I do lots of outdoor trips in the summer and would love to just take one skincare product with me. Something with spf, preferably some anti-acne benefits (I'm prone to mild breakouts), lightly moisturizing, with sheer to medium coverage. I don't live close to a sephora, otherwise I'd just go in and ask for samples. Thanks so much for any suggestions!!
I want to buy Born This Way, but I don't know exactly which colour I match with.I think Vanilla or Warm Nude, my undertone is more yellow than pink. I'm now wearing Dior Forever in 020- light beige and Chanel Perfection lumiere Velvet in 20 beige.
I'm a NW25 in MAC concealers and was recently matched to Light Warm in Urban Decay Naked Skin? Is this correct? If not is there anything I can do with it? Like contouring or something? If its that light. I don't know.
What highlighter and contour do you suggest and also what brushes to use? I really want to start highlighting and contouring my face but am so overwhelmed by all the different options! I'm a beginner at highlighting/contouring and have just recently started using brushes!
I live in South Louisiana...highest humidity ever! You can't make it to car without sweating. Soooo I wanted to see if anyone had recommendations for the following that are waterproof longwear and hold up in hot humid weather 1.foundation 2.concealer (any tarte longwear fans? 3. transluscent powder/ and do I need pressed too....This baking trend is making me think it could be an option to help makeup stay sealed (also anyone feeling the tarte transluscent" Thanks guys for reading the essay! Feel free to give me any other ideas you have to make all the work i put into makeup last longer than five mintes!
I've been using MAC's mineralized skin finish powder in medium deep for years now to set my foundation. I love the sheen it leaves on my face as well as the little bit of coverage it adds. I would like to switch up my routine a little so I am look for similar powders carried at Sephora. Thanks! Xx
Spoiler (Highlight to read) I am looking for a powder foundation that isn't cakey or flat, something medium-full coverage with possibly some tiny bit of illumination. I have tried cover x and bare minerals, but it all looks so /cakeyfake in natural light. I don't even know if its possible for a powder foundation to look natural and dewy, but that would be my dream!
So I'm turning 18 in October and for my birthday present I would like permission from my parents to wear makeup (I don't even want makeup for my birthday I just want PERMISSION.) My parents are the stereotypical strict Asian parents. They are very controlling over everything I do including what I wear, how my hair needs to be done, etc. So basically how they want me to look like. Makeup is strictly forbidden so far but I have an obsession with it. I've been sneaking my makeup in school and wearing it there then take it off when I come home. By doing this for years I am now pretty experienced with it and have done every technique possible on my face. Now you're probably thinking that I'm 18 and I'll be an adult and they have to give me leeway. However in the Asian culture, it is VERY different because you get to do what you want when you move out and/or married. The number 18 means nothing and they still see me as a 12 year old. I just went to prom recently and even my mom didn't allow me to wear any makeup besides a little lipstick. I am mature though, I do my chores around the house, I do my homework, I definitely do not party or drink or smoke. It's just they are very controlling (way more than American parents) and yell at me for everything. I understand they care but sometimes there are limits. Anyways besides my rambling... So how should I talk to them about wanting to wear makeup when I'm 18? Obviously I'm still going to be under their roof and when I wear makeup I am not going to cakeface (never did). I'll just do natural bb cream, tightlining, neutral shadows, and a lip tint...just to accentuate my features and look cute and confident. Please help and thank you!
My routine now: Wash face and pat dry with a towel Apply moisturizer Apply foundation for dry skin During the day it starts with some moisture but after a couple ours my skin feels dry and flaky. What can i do to avoid this?
