Hello All! So a little about me.. I am 25, am more Oily-skinned than not, very very fair and never tan. usually have at least one or two blemishes - I dont think i can ever remember a time when i had clear skin. I usually used Revlon colorstay on a day to day basis, and something like MUFE or MAC for special occasions. I am headed to the wonderful Disney World in humid, muggy, HOT Orlando soon, and need some makeup help. I want something that provides some coverage for my uneven skin + blemishes, but nothing too heavy. I would prefer something I didnt have to touch up as often etc. can anybody offer a suggestion? On a side-note... I would love to eventually phase out foundation all together. what would you recommend for doing that? I have horrible self esteem when it comes to my face and I feel like that is my main setback... I look forward to reading your suggestions!
I used to use LORAC PERFECTLY LIT OIL-FREE LUMINIZING POWDER in Spotlight - it's sold out everywhere - and I've heard rumors it is being discontinued. I realize Sephora no longer carries the line and Kohls now does, but again, I can't find my fav luminizer anywhere. Ugh!!!! I need some Sephora help! Pretty please! I have a medium colored skin tone (yellow undertones) so gold tones tend to look more natural than pink ones - need recommendations on what other options to try to replace my old fav product. I have tried a bunch of things thus far and haven't had a lot of luck. I don't want anything too glittery.... help... And thanks in advance!
Help! For years the only foundation that has worked for me is Bare Minerals matte and either my skin is getting used to it or my pregnancy hormones are in overdrive since it's starting to make my pores look larger now and starting to cake after a few years of use. I have red sensitive skin with acne scars and large pores. My skin tends to soak up my makeup throughout the day if it's NOT Bare Minerals and then I break out. I can usually use any powder on top. I always moisturize and use a primer beforehand. What is a good foundation and primer that I can use for my skin? I've tried Nars, Urban Decay Naked, and MAC foundations but I always come back to Bare Minerals Matte. Any suggestions on primer, too? Currently using: Bare Minerals Primer, Bare Minerals Matte Finish Foundation, Nars Powder Foudation for powder or Halo Hydrating Powder.
I have pretty good, mature skin. Not too many blemishes or marks, and I'm quite fair with blue eyes. I am having trouble finding a good summer face makeup that will cover my little bit of redness, and stay on my face! With the humidity in New York everything is just melting off. Even powder isn't really working.....I've been trying a tinted sunscreen with Bare Minerals over it, but the coverage isn't very good...Any ideas??
Hi BT Buddies!! Here is my dilemma--I have used Jane Iredales pressed and loose minerals, I like both, but the pressed just doesnt give me enough covereage. I want a pressed foundation that gives medium/buildable coverage. I haven't tried BM Ready yet, but I did use the loose in Fairly Light. I recently tried the IT Cosmetics one and like it but it was too yellow so back it went. I need a fair with COOL undertones--no yellow. I have combination skin, tends to get oily T zone... I welcome any suggestions! Thanks in advance!
My skin is very oily and I am trying to find a foundation that works really well for my skin and I recently purchased BECCA foundation from Sephora but now I just want to find a drugstore makeup for now and I don't know what to get. Any recommendations?
I dont wear foundation at all but hâve to for my job. I would like oné that doesnt make my face feel heavy . I also hâve oily skin and wouldnt like oné That builds up the oil on my skin , and where i could still look good wearing my eye-liner and mascara.
I'm looking for a product to replace my Marc Jacobs Close-Up (302) Lightshow Luminizing Powder. I bought one near the end of last year and have been trying so hard to make it last but I'd rather just find something else to use when this is over that I can always find. Multiple products that are similar in each shade would be fine, but I prefer palettes. Or if you have any suggestions for different colour highlighters, etc! I have fair skin, hazel eyes and dark brown hair. Hope someone can help me, thanks!
Need advice on picking a full coverage foundation that won't look cakey...i do have some skin imperfections but for the most part it's pretty clear, combination skin oily/dry...Don't want to look like I layered it on...I've used MUFE Matte Velvet and I've tried MAC products...
Hi there, I need suggestions on liquid & powder foundations that have a matte finish, that are best for oily skin and don't cause breakouts. More about my skin: I have yellow undertones, dark circles underneath my eyes (not extremely dark), I also have a few blemishes on my skin, & throughout the day I mainly get oily on my tzone. So far I have tried Tarte (not a fan of the powder) and Kat Von Ds Lock it liquid foundations, which so far I like but I like to try new things. I don't use primer, I have tried the Benefit flawless, and the smashbox primer which I didn't like. I felt like it made my skin more oily. So if you have suggestions on primers or concealer for my dark circles that'd be great !!
Hi! I had a question about these two powder foundations. I have PCOS, so I have EXTREMELYYYY oily skin, large pores, and acne/acne scarring. I don't like wearing liquid foundations, and I've heard good reviews on these two products, but mostly the MUFE Duo Mat, as it had more reviews. Which one of these two products would be better for my oily skin? I currently use the Mac Studio Fix powder plus foundation, and it makes me oily within half an hour, I hate it!
Would you please recommend waterproof (beach, pool, swimming) makeup from foundation or cc cream to eyebrow makeup. I have acne-prone skin, so I want to be careful with what I put on. My skin is oily and tone is medium. I am currently using Clinique's CC cream and Smashbox foundation. Thanks
I am being seduced by the cheek and bronzer brushes by Tom Ford, but each is so bleepin' expensive I'm not sure I could justify the price. Then again, I'm looking for the dreamiest, softest blush brush and all-over face powder brush. Are these what I'm looking for? If not, which one(s) do you prefer?
I'm looking to try Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover but the nearest store is kinda far from me. And I want to order it online. I'm currently using make up forever poweder duo 203 and sometimes the bare minerals golden medium. My skin type easily turns pink whenever its hot or after workout. Please advise which shade should I get for the HD foundation? Thank you
Hello! I am currently using BareMinerals Original Foundation in fairly medium. I want to try a Make Up For Ever powder or liquid foundation. Also, I have pink undertones- cool skin tone, oily skin. Which shade would I be? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Hello! My name is Amanda, and I needed a little advice on foundation. Since I have acne prone sensative skin I normally do not wear liquid foundation. I usually wear a Maybelline powder as the main base on my face. I previously used Revlon's foundations and they broke me out like crazy! Now, I am interested in Bareminerals new liquid foundation. I'm hoping that since it's my Bareminerals, it will be gentle on the face. Has anyone had any bad experinces with breaking out from this? Or any recommendations on foundations that haven't caused acne in general? Thanks!!
I am getting married in april and want a good quality foundation to wear that will last all day and will still look good in pictures. I want a foundation that is NOT a powder. I tend to have somewhat oily skin and have blemishes that I need covered. I also have somewhat sensitive skin. I also need it to be somewhat reasonably priced. I cannot spend more than $45 on it. I would LOVE it if you could give me multiple examples. Please help!
Hi There - I'm currently using the estee lauder double wear foundation in Ecru 1n2, however I realize now its too light for my skin tone. I did the color IQ in sephora back in January and was matched to 1Y07, and i found that the estee lauder match to that code was Fresco 2C3. Just by looking at the Fresco shade i know it might be too pink for my skin tone. I am definitely neutral even though I find the veins in my wrists quite blue. My face has some pink undertone but id like to match my foundation to my neck and it is definitely more neutral and not pink. Looking for suggestions on what shades you might think would work for me? I understand the "7" is a medium shade. I was looking at the desert beige 2n1, or the dawn beige 2w1 or the rattan 2w2. thank you!!
I currently wear Bare Minerals original in fairly medium. I want to try Too Faced new foundation powder the one infused with the cocoa powder. I love everything they make with it... Bronzers, eyeshadow palette. Anyway, what color would most match my bare minerals color??
So tomorrow, I was going to buy Lingerie de Peau & try the Meteorite in stores to see if I like them enough to buy them. BUT, I think I took for granted that because this is such a high end product, it did not contain talc. But it does! I am shocked. I'm not paying 60+$ for some pretty pearls made of talc. Is this just me or what? I never had problem with talk, and I wouldn't mind it too much if it was a 25$ powder, but for the price I'm paying, it better be talc free. Is is just me or if sometimes, luxury brands are a little behind in terms of ingredients and all? What are your thoughts?
