I love MAKE UP FOR EVER Face and Body Liquid as a light coverage foundation in the summer, but I am so pale that I can only wear it later in the summer when my face is tanned. Does anyone have a suggestion for a similar type of foundation that comes in paler colours for the next few months? My skin is normal-to-dry, but sensitive to anything comedogenic (which in my case, includes BB creams, CC creams, and tinted moisturizers -- anything that wants to soak into my skin is not my friend). I wear 115 Ivory in their HD Invisible Cover Foundation, and my winter Color IQ is 1R03. Thanks in advance!
From the swatches, this palette looks so pretty! However; I am concerned with the pigmentation of the blush. I looks orange-y and I have fair skin with pink undertones. With the colour difuse different on the skin? Is it still worth a buy if the blush is a flop (in your opinions, obvs)? Thanks!
I'm using Makeup Forever Matte primer with their foundation, but I've noticed when I go to put the foundation on it tends to feel like the brush sticks and has difficultly applying. I'm using the Urban Decay foundation brush. I've never had this issue before with Smashbox so I'm not sure what to do. Thanks!
Help! I use a matte primer from Becca, which works great with my makeup for the first half of the day. When I try to retouch my makeup later in the day or even touch my face it get splotchy and comes off so easily. If I apply more product it looks cakey and doesnt blend at all as it would during my initial application. What am I doing wrong here or how can I fix this problem?
Sephora no longer carries my go-to concealer, Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Concealer ITEM 1324573 COLOR 01 Fair - fairest skin with neutral undertones. What do you recommend instead?
I know its expensive but i really need help finding the right shade, theirs no store near me that has it for me to try on. I'm a NC15 in the MAC foundation. I've worn MAC for years and really wanna try something different.
I'm attending my husbands ball in June and I need help with a foundation. the ball is in the middle of the summer in the desert. It'll need to last like 6-7 hours and look good in photos. I'm currently shade 0 in Bobbi Brown and W-1-2 in loreal. I can also wear I'm pure for sure in benefit. I have the issue of all those foundations becoming an oily mess after 2-3 hours. I have quite a few discoloraed marks from breakouts too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi guys! I haven't posted in a while. I'm looking for a cream blush with good staying power-in a rosy pinkish shade that's natural and definitely not peachy. Right now I'm using YSL Creme de Blush in 02 Powdery Rose, but it will expire soon, and I think they discontinued the product. Any ideas for a good replacement? Thanks!
ok so I always used bare minerals powder but I'm getting older and dryer. I've been using bb or cc creams, or tinted moisturizer but I need something with more coverage to cover age spots/melasma. But also need something in neutral or cool tones as I have no yellow or gold in my skin. Any ideas? Oh, I recently tried bare minerals serum and was not happy due to gold tone and it settled in lines and actually accentuated them.
Help! I have tried pretty much all foundations recommended for oily skin and they still slide off of my face. I would prefer a more natural, matte look anyway, rather than the heavy coverage some of those foundations provide. Does anyone have really oily, acne prone skin and manage to get a natural, matte look, maybe with a bb cream or something?
The JC Penney in my town finally got a Sephora! YAY! While I was in there I decided to find out if they could shade match a foundation for me and they did with their color IQ match camera! My skin tone is 1RO5 and the lady suggested Tarte Fair Beige since I am fair with pink undertones. She also tried Celebrated blush from Tarte. My question is, based on my skin tone, what other blush colors from tarte, urban decay or too faced would work for me? Thanks!
Hi, I got Complexion Rescue in Natural 05, and right now it's perfect for my skin shade...It just blends into my skin and I feel like I am wearing nothing. I don't know if that's because the shades aren't not too heavy or because it actually matches the color of my skin. However, in a month or so, I will start to have a tan and i will definitely look much darker than now (I tan pretty easily), will i need to get a drake shade like tan 07, or is it way too dark than natural 05? if yes, what shade do you recommend? Or do you think that Natural 05 will do just fine even when i am tanned?
I want a good, lasting foundation with full coverage. I'm going to purchase one of these foundations for my graduation in mid May. I live in Arizona, so I want a foundation that won't sweat off. So far I'm stuck between these two foundations. Please help, thank youuu.... -Also, some parts of my face are oily and some are dry and I have some to little acne-
So I recently got a sample of this foundation and I expected great things, but I feel like its starts to look cakey. One layer wasn't giving me all the coverage I like so I applied a thin second layer (using my beauty blender) but soon it looked heavy and not good at all. I used it with the Cover FX mattifying primer and set with the Urban Decay De-Slick powder and setting spray. Do any of you have any recommendation on how to apply the foundation a different way or anything I could do different? I've heard such great things about this foundation I really want it to work for me!
Have anyone tried Surratt loose powder in eclatant? If none, maybe I should be bold and try it out myself. I'm currently debating whether I should get Hourglass ambient powder in compact or Surratt loose powder as my new finish powder!
I am looking for T -zone oil control product whatever it may be . My foundation start looking cakey after an hour and face is oil stick. I dont want to change my foundation as I bought recently and dont want to waste it (GA luminious silk) For Skincare,I use Korres milk protein cleanser/fresh cleanser/clinique balm Belif aqua bomb Kate somerville exfoliate Clay masks
So, I've decided I'm going to explore the world of bronzers this summer. However, I'm running into problems finding one that works with my skin tone and has the properties that I prefer. Below is what I'm looking for -- any recommendations, whether drugstore or lux would be helpful! Suitable for an NC44/45 skin tone Not for contouring -- I'm looking for something that I can use to just add a nice, sun-kissed glow to my cheeks, forehead, etc. Some shimmer but finely milled -- I tried one of the CoverGirl Queen Collection bronzers recently, which I know get rave reviews. However, the shimmer in it looks like chunky glitter on me, which is not the look I'm going for. When I think finely milled, something as smooth as the Hourglass ambient lighting powders. (I did think about their new bronzers, but their darkest one looks too light for my skin tone.)
Hello, I have dry skin and whenever I apply foundation my skin looking super dry with patches all over and cakey. It does't look natural nor pretty. I have tired Giorgio Armani Luminous silk foundation and only that suits me so well i cant afford $64 all the time though. So I picked Loreal lumi foundation which I heard dupe of GA but Loreal lumi does't work for me. Could anyone suggest me the best foundation for luminous or dewy look, esp for dry skin that does't look cakey. Thanks.
I CANT seem to FIND a foundation I love! Lancome discontinued the one I used and I've been on a search ever since!! I am looking for one that is lightweight BUT ALSO covers AND IS long wearing, doesnt settle into fine lines or pores AND DOESNT oxidize -- i've been running into that lately. Any suggestions???
Last month when Macy's had a great GWP for Clinique (with stuff I actually needed, imagine that!) I bought 2 of the cheek pop blushes after reading great reviews on this site and Temptalia. I am finding it so hard to get the powder onto my blush brush! I am having to use the free (stiff) brush that came with a deluxe Bare Minerals sample. Does anyone else have this problem? I am used to NARS and tarte blush where I can use a very fluffy brush and get quite a bit of product with a light touch. Suggestions?
Hi, So just wondering what is a good brow product? I know soo many people and youtube guru's have been using the ABH products. Any others that are good that you all could recommend without having to pay so much? Even a kit would do...i have black eyebrows...would brown be best to use? like a dark chocolate brown color? I am open to suggestions....there are so many out there...just wondering what product is good.
hey! so i've been looking for a good foundation for a really long time and can't seem to find one. I've tried everything drugstore brands and high end brands, but they never seem to have the coverage that I want. I'm looking for a foundation that can't be seen by anyone i really want it to blend in with my skin. I also have acne scars and acne that I would want to cover up. Is there a foundation that can do all this for me?
So I finally got this with my 500 points perk! Woot! I tried it out today to contour and brighten and highlight as well. But I guess cause Im semi new at all this highlight and contouring, my face was all red and you could see that I have LOTS of makeup on. So I ask, what is the first step before contouring and how do I get it to perfection? Yes, the steps are in the back of the box but I still dont understand it.
