Need full coverage foundation for summer weddings (oily skin)
Hi! I need a full coverage foundation for oily skin. It needs to withstand Texas heat and sweating. I currently am using Clarins but I can't find a right color and it seems to be fading as the day goes on. I prime with Smashbox and set with IT mineral veil pore minimizer! Any help is appreciated!

Beautyblender or Brush?
Oxidization and Undertones
I have pretty neutral undertones. In the winter I normally wear foundation and powder with a pink/red undertone, and in the summer I wear foundation with a beige/yellow undertone.   The stuff I'm using right now is oxidizing badly. By noon, even utilizing a primer and loads of blot paper, I'm orange. This stuff has a beige undertone.   In thinking back, I've had this problem before. I'm pretty sure it has always been with my "summer" colour. It could just be that I'm more oily in the summer, but I'm thinking the undertone of the makeup might play a roll in this.   Does anyone who uses a neutral or pink/red undertoned foundation have oxidization troubles? If so, do they turn orange too?   I'm thinking about experimenting, but I've got a stock pile of my summer stuff. I really don't want to pick up something else without some feedback from the community.

Want long lasting, natural/dewy finish, medium or buildable coverage
I feel like I have been on a search for my holy grail foundation for years. I have combo, acne prone skin. I also have rosacea, which I wish to cover. But I don't want coverage that is too heavy because it looks unnatural with my freckles. My favorite foundation I have used is Urban Decay Naked Liquid Makeup. I am wearing it in the picture below. HOWEVER... It never lasts for me. I have tried various primers and even the UD setting spray. Can anyone recommend a similar finish (natural/dewy) on a foundation that will last all day (esp in the warm summer) on my skin type?  Thank you!!

Q. Foundation for flawless skin/cover up acne
Hi! I'm fourteen years old and am on the market for a new foundation. My skin is pretty normal, but I do get oily in the T zone. I have a lot of redness in my cheeks and some acne. I am currently using the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation and I'm really impressed. It does a fantastic job covering up my redness. The only thing is, it doesn't exactly cover up my acne well. It covers the redness, but you can still see the bumps on my skin. I want something similar to Maybelline Fit Me, but will give me higher coverage and cover all my acne. I want a flawless finish that still looks natural. Also, I don't have a lot of money to spend so something on the lower end of prices would be great. Drugstore or high end is fine. Thanks in advance!

Liquid / cream / mousse foundations similar to MUFE Matte #110?
Hi everyone! Here's some quick background about me and what I'm looking for:   I have very pale skin and problems with redness and oiliness. My favorite foundation used to MUFE Matte Velvet in #15 (Alabaster), which matches my skin wonderfully. BUT, more recently, my skin has become a lot drier and I'm having to stay away from matte foundations. I like the coverage and feel of MUFE HD Invisible, but the lightest shade doesn't match Matte Velvet 15.   Other foundations I've tried / am trying: -Shiseido The Makeup Dual Balancing in I20: Like the feel, wrong shade/tone -Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in 00: A little bit thinner than MUFE HD, but a better shade for me   So, I'm wondering what super pale foundations out there people with difficult combination skin/assorted problems have tried and liked? I'm considering giving Givenchy Photo Perfect foundation or Urban Decay's Naked a try based on what I've read in this forum, but I'm on the fence. Of these two and any others you can think of, what would be most comparable to the coverage offered by MUFE HD Invisible Cover?   Secondly, I do have some MAC Face and Body in white that I mix with my existing too-dark foundations, but I'm finding it's a little too watery and causes my foundation not to blend well on my skin. Are there any similar pure white foundations that aren't as watery that people like?

My foundation routine always looks cakey! Help!
Hello!   I'm 20, with fair skin and I have oily/sensitive acne prone skin, and I have yet to find a decent foundation routine. I have large pores on my cheeks, a ton of blackheads and rough skin on my forehead, like sort of checkered fine lines if that makes any sense. Every single foundation routine I've tried so far just accentuates the awful look of my skin, no primers, that I've tried seem to make any difference. Does anyone have any tips/brushes/makeup products to suggest? They all need to be long-lasting as well, preferably a luxury one, I never seem to like drugstore ones.   Products I've tried: -Beauty blender -Stippling Brush -Revlon Colorstay -Lacome Teint Idol -Covergirl ready set gorgeous -Loreal Tru Match -Loreal Tru Match lumiere -Two Faced Primed and Poreless -Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer -Smashbox photofinish -The porefessional -MAC studio fix powder -Lancome LaBase pore primer -Clinique Superprimer -Laura mercier translucent powder -MUFE Skin equalizer step 1 smoothing -Benefit Hello Flawless powder   Thanks so much!

What brand and/or product would you recommend for an everyday face foundation or bb cream. I will be starting Nursing school in the fall and want to have a quick routine so that I look presentable. I have acne and scarring  but hope that they clear up with the Retin A by the time I start school. I want something that is about medium coverage.? I can never stand light coverage.

Q. Foundation Help me choose!
Hi. I am having the worst time trying to pick my next foundation purchase. My number one requirement is that it is long lasting, but additional criteria includes light weight and/or medium- light buildable coverage, not dewy- I need something natural or matte. I have true combo skin, but I don't want something that is too drying. I found estee lauder double wear light to be too heavy, and a bit drying for reference. For the record, I did look up reviews (which every single one has a lot of good and then several terrible ones) and I searched, but all the searches that came up for long lasting also wanted full coverage and/or needed to cover a lot. I have a tiny bit of hyperpigmentation on my upper cheeks, but aside from that, I don't need anything too heavy. I would appreciate it so much if I could get some of your opinions, since I value the opinions of the girls on BT more than the average review- you ladies know what you are talking about! (Other info: I have tried Tarte- too heavy, cakey, Teint Idole is okay but I want to try something else. Also, I hate primers and have never tried one that works well under foundation for me. I've tried several and most of them suck all the oil out of my face and make my skin look really dry, while others caked up underneath and/or made my foundation roll.) Oh, also, I don't care if the suggestion is Sephora brand or something else. Sorry so long, just trying to get all the details in. Thank you so much!

Nars Orgasm vs Super Orgasm
Yes, I know this question has been asked before, however, I haven't really seen anyone who can answer my specific questions about the two blushes. Looking at swatches and reviews online don't help, they're all so different and there are so many varying opinions!   I am looking to purchase either one of these blushes (not lip gloss), but am not sure which one. So! I'd like to know, primarily, which one is pinker. I know both lean pinky-peach but if one has a more pink tone I definitely would go to that one. Second, which one's formula is better (I don't mind glitter at all, I love it!) Third, which one would be better suited to very pale skin. THANKS!!
