What's your Holy Grail for foundation brushes?? 😄 if you have a different favorite for powder, liquid, cream, bbs, airbrush, ect. list them all! And please tell us why you love them. 😌 Shoot let's go even further what is your HG brush for all areas of make up? What do you use it for? And again why is it so great?
Hi my lovely fellow BTers!!!! I need your help. I'm looking for a new foundation. I have acne prone, combo oily skin with a few dry patches on my cheeks. I am between NW44 and NW45 in the MAC Studio Fix Fluid, 80 Cognac in the MUFE Mat Velvet. I currently use Revlon Colorstay Combo/oily formula and I mix Caramel and Cappuccino. I just want to try something new and don't know what to try. I prefer a demi-matte/matte finish that isn't too heavy, medium coverage, skin like. I still get pretty oily in the winter but not as much as the summer.
I've been using the Lingerie de peau, and I find that there's not many foundations out there that matches up.. but unfortunately, my color is sold out, and I wanted to buy a few foundations this holiday season.. Has anyone tried the parure de lumiere? I know its supposed to be for dry skin, but I've read that some people think its too "matte" or "dry"for their skin. I have combination skin, and is looking for a few foundations to use in the summer when I tend to be a bit oilier but not a full blown oily skin
I want to buy a GRAFTOBIAN HIGH-DEFINITION CREME FOUNDATION but i dont have any idea what color is right for me and I'm not sure its a product they sell in stores. I know that in my area they dont sell. I am 200 nude in revlon colorstay liquid foundation (combo/oily skin), can anyone tell me what my color is in the graftobian please?
Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage powder foundation : When the amount of foundation left in the container gets low, do you have any suggestions on how to get it out? I don't want to push my brush down too hard and ruin the bristles, and I also don't really want to dump it out to be able to dip into it. It's not like I can swirl it in the cap because of that little stopper.....and I am over the whole "swirl, tap, buff" thing anyhow....I just wish there were a better way. Has anyone gotten theirs that low yet? Suggestions?
Okay ladies(gents), I really want to try a new foundation. I have been using the UD naked foundation in 3.5 and I'm not to big of a fan of it. I only bought it because a sephora employee suggested it to me. It's thick to me even when I hardly apply any it still looks not cakey but wierd on me like it doesn't want to apply in a nice thin layer. Okay here goes all my skin info: honestly I'm not sure if I have normal or oily skin. I just know it's not dry and it's not combination, because when it does get oily it's the same all over not just in a few places. I should probably know my skin type but I don't. :/ type of foundation I want: I don't think I like matte too much I like more of a natural yet gorgeous look. Something that makes my skin look flawless without it looking like I actually have something on my face. Like when you 1st step out of the shower and your skin looks all perfect and slightly dewy because it just got all that moisture. I don't care what the coverage is I can add concealer to cover a little more or add a primer to make the consistency a little less if needed too. If it is sheer I would prefer it to be able to be nicely buildable. I also don't care if it's liquid, cream, powder, ect. It can be anything as long as it looks flawless! Hmm I can't think of anything else besides a may be a tad acne prone. Thank you!
I have my MAC lipstick on today. It's their Longwear Lipglass. The color is Driven by Love. On my eyes, I have my favorite palette, Urban Decay 2. Lashes are Benefit, Yes They're Real mascara. And gotta love my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Truffle and my blush is Nars Desert Rose.
I have bad dark circles....genetics and three kids. Even if I'm well rested I look exhausted! I can't seem to find a good full coverage concealer that doesn't a) wear off easily or b) settle into fine lines under my eyes. Any suggestions?
Hi ladies! I was hoping someone could help me pick a shade for the above products. I'm referring to the Bobbi Brown concealer kit with the concealer/powder. I currently use Lancome Teint Idole Ultra in 210 Buff N. I don't have a Sephora where I live to get matched. Thanks!
Hey everyone I'm just am curious about the newly formulated KohGendo aqua foundation I've read that it has been reformulated recently.. and can't find any counters to try a sample.. I've used Makeup forever HD, Mat Velvet Guerlain Lingerie de peau Giorgio Armani luminous silk Hourglass immaculate Chanel Vitalumiere aqua YSL touche eclat before., "smoothing" of texture is really important.. I hate foundations that accentuate the pores and/or become patchy I have combination skin, some hyperpigmentations to cover, and some pores around the nose and forehead
I am trying to select a good brush for contouring with Sephora's Los Cabos. The brushes I am trying to choose from are: MAKE UP FOR EVER 150 Precision Blush Brush MAKE UP FOR EVER 152 Medium Highlighter Brush SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Contour Brush #74 MAC 109 Small Contour Brush Sigma F05 Small Contour Brush Which will give me the best contouring effect (but still natural but buildable) while being the best quality? Thanks!
I need some help - I`m looking at purchasing the Guerlain foundation but I`m not sure if I should get shade 24 or shade 25. I`m a tad bit darker than NC45 but NC50 is too dark. Here are the colours I wear in other brands: MUFE HD - 173 DiorSkin - 050 Smashbox Studio Skin 4.1 If anyone can help, I would appreciate it!
I have acne prone skin, but I really only break out when I wear makeup. If I don't wear it my skin clears up in a week or two, but I want to wear makeup to cover up acne marks I got a while ago. What is the best makeup to use?
I was at the movies recently and it made me feel slightly bad about my makeup. How on earth do the makeup artists get foundation to look so perfectly skin-like? I think my makeup is usually pretty natural but most girls would be able to tell I'm wearing foundation. I want to find a foundation that has decent coverage but doesn't look like foundation.... maybe I'm asking too much. Makeup isn't magic. Can any of you recommend foundation like this for me?
Hey everyone, I am just on a hunt for yet another foundation.. I'm currently using the Makeup forever HD an the Guerlain lingerie de peau. I'm just really curious about the Givenchy photo perfexion fluid foundation because it does have great reviews, but I can't find them in stores anymore because the Teint couture has replaced them. I like light weight foundations that has a fair amount of coverage, and those that have a nice glow/brightening effect to them. (I have combination skin that tends to get a bit oily during the summer months) What are your experiences of using Givenchy's photo foundation?
I can't decide between the three offered right here on Sephora: Parure de Lumière Tenue de Perfection Lingerie de Peau Thoughts/opinions/reviews would be much appreciated, especially any comparisons. Thank you!!
I want a new highlighter, but I dont want something that looks like a unicorn sneezed glitter in my face! I'm looking for something that gives me a luminous warm glow and doesn't look greasy from too much sheen (oily skin here) I think I've picked two contenders : Too Faced Candlelight Duo Highlighting Powder OR Dior Shimmer Star Has anyone used one or both??
I use the NARS blush in Orgasm every single day. It's a HG for me, but the only other high end blush I have ever used was Bare Minerals. (Actually, come to think of it, I have never even used a drugstore blush.) I love the softness and natural look of Orgasm, so similar colors would be nice. Any blushes that you think are to die for? (If this helps - I have very pale skin and dark eyes/brows/hair.) Here's a picture.(But please ignore my awful hair. This photo was taken after a VERY long day and i didn't have time to fix it.)
When I apply my foundation it looks fine but then maybe 2-3 hours alter it looks cakey and appears to be a layer on top of my skin. I really am looking for a dewy more natural look for daytime, I have used Silia tinted moisturizer in the past which did not get flaky however was looking for a little more coverage so i switched to a foundation. Should I go back to Stila, try something else OR modify my application?? (I don't use my foundation brush because i cant blend with it i usually use my fingertips) I use Make up Forever HD foundation and Nars or MUF primer, to set I use MUF forever HD powder. I exfoliate once a week and moisturize all the time since i have dry/combo skin i also use Argan oil at night.
Just trying to figure out if my Ambient Lighting Powder 3 set will fit into my zPalette (height wise) or if they are too thick/tall? Before I start melting the nice package and potentially cracking the powders with my not-great depotting skills, I want to know if they will actually fit. In all my side-inspecting, etc. I can't tell and it is close. I have a large zPalette but NOT THE EXTRA TALL ONE for baked powders. Just the regular. Does anyone know about this? Again they are the smaller powders from the 3 set .
Hey all, I keep reading on here about people have problems with foundation "balling up" in various situations but I can't find a picture of what that looks like. I'm curious because I think it might be happening to me; after a few hours of wearing foundation + primer it looks like the color is clinging onto the base of the hairs on my face and/or clogging my pores, as well as flaking off a bit. I just checked the ingredients list and both my foundation and primer have dimethicone pretty high up on the ingredients list (foundation has it as the second ingredient) so I'm wondering if that's part of the problem. for reference i've been wearing this primer and foundation which were suggested to me by a SA: http://www.sephora.com/10-hr-wear-perfection-found ation-P379509?skuId=1492859 http://www.sephora.com/perfecting-ultra-smoothing- primer-P284104
So I was looking around for color matches but I don't know enough about their line or .5 shades, just that they have a huge range that's really light. Im looking to try this in the spring probably during the next fnf but I don't think my sephora carries illamasqua. Shade help? I wear mufe mat velvet 30, hd 120, Chanel aqua b20 and perfection lumiere b10 & ud 3.0. I couldnt find a match in the color iq. If you used it how did you like it?
I heard amazing things about this foundation and I want to go and buy it and try it. But I heard one con about it.. that it turns orange after an hour or so.. if thats true I dont want to go and buy it and only get an hour out of it.
