Foundation for combo skin that really lasts all day?
Now that is getting drier, my non t zone is extremely dry and my t zone still gets oily. I want a natural looking foundation that doesn't cling to dry spots and doesn't seperate where I get oily. AND LASTS ALL DAY. I've been thinking about trying out: Tarte Amazonian Clay, Josie Maran Vibrancy, MUFE, Nars All Day Luminous and Becca Ever Matte. Any advice or suggestion

Q. Foundation Help
Hello ladies!      I am in desperate need of your help. I am on the hunt for a foundation (and/or concealer combo) that will not crease or break up on my face. Recently I've noticed that my old stand-by's tend to break up or crease heavily around my nose and eyes.       I've spent far more than I probably should have trying to find a combination of primers, foundations, powders etc to stop the issue. I've ensured that they're all match based (oil, water), tried some YouTube techniques, even bought new brushes because I thought my beauty blender wasn't hacking it anymore.      I'm fed up and swimming in a sea of foundations that don't seem to want to cooperate. Any ideas and suggestions would be great!     Thank You!

I'd like the concealer to be a shade or 2 lighter to use for contouring also.    I was thinking light 5 or light 9?  Which would be best?   Thanks

Hi mandio86,   Your exact concealer match would be Light 15, so I would actually recommend Light 9 as I think Light 5 would be too light for your skintone.  see post

Winter Foundation
Hi, I have recently moved to an area that has colder climate and since it has started getting colder I really want to wear beanies and scarves. The only problem is that all my winter accessories are really light colors and makeup transfer is really noticeable. I have tried using matte foundations, setting powder and setting spray but my skin is really oily so it transfers anyway. What are some products or suggestions to help with this problem? Thank you
