I am 15 years old and I recently bought the foundation, am I too young to be wearing foundation ? Is the foundation non-comedogenic? My mom has told me that foundations can make the skin age faster, is that true ? I am worrying because the foundation is quite pricy and I'm hoping that there won't be any regrets. Also, Would it work if I were to mix it with moisturizer to turn it into a tinted moisturizer? As for additional information, My skin is quite oily (especially the T-Zone, oh boy) and have a few acne spots and pimples here and there. Thank you
I'm doing my sister's makeup this Friday for an event with a 90's theme. I was quite young in the 90's and wasn't playing with makeup so I don't really remember what was popular. I've been researching different trends online but there are a lot. So I ask of you, my beauty friends, when you think 90's makeup, what stands out the most?
One of the Sephora attendants applied 2 different types of foundation on me Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless liquid makeup in shade 1 (= 1Y02 colorIQ) and then Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation in shade P20 (=2R03 colorIQ). She applied those to my chest first and decided they were good matches and then applied them to my face. They seemed to be good matches which is puzzling since UD is in the yellow undertones and CoverFX in the pink undertones. Hence my puzzlement. I went one more time to the store and asked for a sample of the Hourglass Immaculate. The lady actually used the colorIQ machine this time and matched me in "Shell" (=1Y05 colorIQ) All this to say I'm super confused at this time, which colorIQ code should I use to match my foundation online? I have rosacea (which makes me think a yellow undertone foundation would help with the redness) and combination skin and a lot of foundations oxidize on me.
I have oily skin, i'm looking for long wearing foundation that will last and not budge and won't leave me any oilier than what i already am. So i can't decide whether i should purchase Estee Lauder Double wear Foundation or Nars all day luminous foundation? Any tips?
Hi girls! Ok so I'm going on holiday in August to Cyprus with my other half who is currently out in Cyprus working with the army. I need some help on makeup etc. I have combination skin and I have a feeling it will be more oily in summer than dry! I'm looking for a non expensive foundation that'll last in 35/40 degree heat!! What is the best foundation for this type of whether e.g cream, mousse etc.I'd like good coverage due to blemish scars. Any help would be great P.S due to having blemish scars etc I was wondering if anybody knows any tips or advice that can help get rid of them or help make them less noticeable with products etc??? thank you
So I blindly bought this in G80 and N70 online because I can't make it to the store right now and am curious how the other deeper shades are. For reference I'm all over the place in terms of foundation shades, but I fall into the NC45 category and 2y-3y 11-12 (though it's still inaccurate). I bought 2 of them to either lighten or darken my foundation and to just match my skin completely, but I'm not sold on the results. I have strong yellow undertones but had to venture in to the N range to try out 70, and N70 isn't a perfect match for me, so I could use it to lighten foundation. G80 is better, but is a tad light (though I mixed both with argan oil so that could have added a white cast of something) Now my question is why is N90 and G70 OOS and has anyone tried out the N90 and N100 and what is it like?
I am just wondering what is a good, highly recommended setting powder? I have combination skin, so by the time it hits say after lunch, my makeup looks fine...but it just tends to get a little oily around my t-zone area. I have two foundations, but use only one or the other depending on my mood. lol One is the MUFE Mat Velvet and the other is the Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Foundation. I do have a little bit of the MUFE HD Microfinish one. I have been using that as a setting powder...but wondering if there is another one that is highly recommended? Or just stick with that one? Any suggestions?
I'm looking for something dewy I wear MAC NC30 mineralize foundation but would like to try a new brand. Can someone recommend other brands/shades that are comparable?and fresh but with moderate/buildible coverage. Thanks!
Powder, cream, liquid...show us your highlighter of the day! Myself I only have a small collection but it's slowly building. I thought it might be fun to have a thread dedicated to our beloved highlighters. Showing your complete look, swatches or even just sharing what you've used for the day. I tend to stick to only a select few but I want to start rotating and showing the rest some love! Who's in? Inspired by Rhiannon....here is my subpar collection I'll be rotating lol. Hopefully new ones to come join the others Day 1. Becca OPAL Day 2: Becca Blushed Copper Day 3. MAC'S perfect topping Day 4. Sephora Baked Highlighter
I am trying to decided between a couple of products and I wanted some thoughts on certain products. First... Eye shadow palettes... Natural Matte Eye from too faced or Semi sweet chocolate bar from too faced? Somethings to consider is that I have the regular chocolate bar already. Second...contouring palettes... Anastasia or Kat Von D ? Why and why not?
Hey guys, just wanted to see what everyone's suggestions are for foundations and primers. I currently use the Smashbox Photo Finish primer water, but lately I feel like its making my face really oily and my Amazonian Clay foundation just sits on top of my skin. After a few hours everything looks kinda streaky and looks like my makeup is just running off my skin. I was looking for a new primer (make skin is combination) that is a matte finish and any suggestions for a medium-full coverage foundation.
I'm taking the advantage of the spring sale and trying some blushes for the first time.. I have purchased the Nars sex appeal, Shu uemura M521, and Tarte "blushing bride" yesterday. I wear Bobbi brown stick foundation in Porcelain and Nars luminous foundation in Gobi currently.. how do I go about choosing the right shade of blush? I just bought the ones above just because they were popular.. no other reason. and how would I go about wearing lipsticks/lipgloss/lip products in general with different color blushes?
Im kinda excited about this. Out now on nars, and will be available at sephora Feb 1, $48 comes with a pump I hope to find a shade in this, gobi in the original sheer glow was too light and i think the next shade up was a touch dark "This new formula creates instant polished perfection with full coverage in a single, weightless drop. Its uniquely fluid, oil-free formula defies the expectations of long-wear foundation, delivering full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Ideal for all skin types and tones in 20 global shades that leave skin at its most beautiful. Yet this formula is also, dermatologist tested. fragrance, paraben, alcohol free. The innovative new formula features a unique Weightless Long-wear Technology that moves with skin, delivering up to 16 hours of wear while always feeling light-as-air and an Even Tone Technology that immediately neutralizes redness, dullness and discoloration to improve skin’s appearance over time."
I have combination skin with acne scars and occasionally blemish. Can anyone give me suggestions on which one to buy? B areminerals Blemish Remedy Foundation, bareminerals Original Foundation, or Tarte Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation? All of these have pretty good review so I really cannot make the determination.
I'm trying to find a new primer, something to hide pores and help control oil (not a fan of matte BUT i need oil control), and hopefully something that helps extend makeup wear. Right now i'm using up the last little bit of a sample of CoverFX calming primer - nothing great IMO and a sample of Korres greek yoghurt primer - better than the CoverFX but still doesn't do enough for my pores and oily skin... These are a few I was interested in, let me know what you think http://www.sephora.com/step-1-skin-equalizer-P3939 65?skuId=1669167http://www.sephora.com/primed-pore ...
Hey everybody! I need some outside opinions on the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops. I have very dry skin and I can never find a foundation that is hydrating or doesn't cling to my dry patches (nose and chin mostly) so I use the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Tawny, which matches me perfectly (I'm a 2y09 according to Color IQ). So I have my regular moisturizer and I'm hoping to use these to create a custom product. Sometimes I want a bit more coverage without piling on product so these drops were like angels descending from on high for me. I'm waffling between G50 and G60 but I'm not sure which one will be just right. I feel as though G60 would be better, but I'm hesitant to write off G50. Which do you think would be better?
hi guys! I'm currently using Laura Mercier Oil Free Photo Edition Silk Foundation which gives me a beautiful glow. I need to set this with setting power, I use MAC's loose translucent setting powder, and whenever I apply the power, my skin loses the glow and the foundation looks a little cakey. it isn't the foundation because this has happened with several different foundations. i have also used several powders and have the same problem. i apply the powder with a big powder brush. any suggestions? thanks xo
I'm doing mine and my sister's makeup to be in our other sister's wedding. What is the best, start to finish method of getting an ultimate, mid to full coverage, luminous glow, but long wearing and great in photos? Primers, concealer, the works!
I have oily skin and pores on my cheeks that I would like to cover.... I am using a sample of coverFX calming primer and it helps my foundation last somewhat longer but its nothing exceptional IMO. I really want something that will help 1. control oil, and 2. hide pores, the wear isn't my main concern but something that helps foundation last would be great...I don't even know where to start there are too many options! - also I use liquid foundations so something that will work with them These are some i was interested in : http://www.sephora.com/step-1-skin-equalizer-P3939 65?skuId=1669027http://www.sephora.com/primed-pore ...
