Hey guys! I am a 17 year old girl with very oily, acne prone skin. I find that my makeup usually looks great in the morning, but by the afternoon is extremely oily and splotchy. I need a great primer, foundation, and concealer option which will stay all day. I am a teenager, though, and don't want my skin to looked caked in makeup. I would like the foundation/ bb cream to be natural looking. Thanks!
I have been struggling this summer with a rather large list of allergies and eliminating them from my life style. Now that my current foundation is running out - I am forced to look for something I am not allergic to! Anything out there?! Foundation/powder for oily skin?
Ok so, I have a really hard time finding a foundation that looks natural on my face, I have really fair skin , but my cheeks and chin are always extremely red , while the rest of my face is pretty pale, I have yet to find a foundation that can cover the redness and basically make my face look natural and one color. It usually looks slightly orangey or just way too light. Any suggestions on what I can use to fix this never ending issue of mine?
Hi everyone! I've been using Benefit Boi-ing concealer for the past 2 years, but i've recently noticed it's starting to look a bit cakey. Good news though, I'm almost out of it! So I figured it's time for a new concealer to try. What are some good ones? I am on a college-student budget though, so something preferably under $30. I have a light complexion with pink undertones, green eyes, strawberry blonde hair, and a normal-dry face.
I have normal, acne-prone skin and fair asian skin color. I don't have any acne, but I have a little bit of acne scar, acne marks, and redness. I would prefer medium coverage. Full coverage would be nice, but I don't like to look heavy. I have tried some foundations and it is just so hard to find the right one for my skin. I recently purchased bareminerals matte foundation, but the sales associate gave me the wrong color. I really like the finish, but I think the foundation is giving me red spots. I will be visiting the store later this week so I just wanted some idea before I visit the store. What would you recommend me? I have tried Bobbi Brown skin foundation and that didn't give me enough coverage. Nars sheer glow & sheer matte didn't work out for me.
So I was watching a youtube video of Vintageortacky and when I saw her Charlotte Tilbury blush, my jaw dropped. I had my eye on the YSL peachy one but .. this... just beats it, and can I say cute packaging? I wasn't going to jump on the CT bandwagon, but according to Cora this gives a nice natural peachy touch.. yep. This blush is called Ecstacy. And this one is the one Cora used called First Love.
Hi BTers! My aunt is looking for a lightweight foundation that is talc-free and works well with oily skin? Doesn't matter if it has SPF or not. She's only looking for something to even out her skin tone, but she's allergic to talc. Her skin is fair, with cool pink undertones. Any recommendations from the BT Community?
I know that Cle De Peau Concealer is supposed to be one of the best out there, so I recently went to a department store counter to try it out. I am very fair and usually match the lightest shade of foundation/concealer in most brands. When I swatched the lightest CDP concealer shade, Ivory, it looked very dark on my hand. I compared the concealer to my foundation at home and it was darker than my foundation. Is there anyone else who has noticed this with CDP? Is this supposed to be more of a corrector? Or is there anyone who is pale but still uses CDP concealer that can explain to me how it works for them? Thank you!
Hello! I've been using Bare Minerals Ready Foundation for maybe 2 years now and it has worked great. Not sure what's changed with my skin, old age? But for some reason it just doesn't look great anymore. I'm 36, have oily skin in the T-zone and have big pores. I've never really liked liquid foundation, but I'm willing to try other things. Any recommendations? Thanks!
Advice needed. Looking for a makeup that has coverage but isnt heavy. I have trouble finding a foundation (liquid) that has coverage but doesnt settle into my pores and look heavy. Any suggestions? P.S. I have combo skin type... oily only in the T-zone
I am looking for a fuller coverage face powder to wear over a liquid foundation. I have tons of freckles, I am a nurse so work long hours so it also needs to be long wearing. I love the coverage of liquid and powder together. The problem is that recently my go to powder was discontinued. It was a drugstore brand. I have tried Clinique and it gives me a cakey look. I am not adverse to wearing only a liquid foundation but I don't want it to settle in my lines and again I want a full coverage. Any help would be appreciated.
I love Lancome's Teint Idole but the shade that I was matched with a year ago isn't quite right. The shade is 140 Iviore. There is one lighter shade, but there is no description of what the difference is. Does anyone know? It seems like this one has a yellow undertone and I am more neutral.
I was looking on the Ulta website and saw a new BECCA pressed powder shimmering skin perfector in champagne gold. I wondered if anyone has seen swatches of this. I already have Moonstone, Opal and Rose Gold so the question is do I need it?? LOL...of course. But I was really wondering how different it is from Moonstone. I'm not sure how to link a picture but you can find it on Ulta or the BECCA website. It says it's limited edition (ha ha, so was rose gold) and it has the same stamping on it as the holiday rose gold had on it.
I didn't start using foundation until the beginning of this year, so I don't know much about foundation outside of the basics. I am in love with Urban Decay's Naked liquid foundation, but my problem is that the shade I got matched to works great for my face, but then when you look at me as a whole, my face is lighter then the rest of my body! I returned the color I previously bought and the woman who was helping me out said if we went any darker in the UD line, that it would be too dark. So instead, we found a match in MAKE UP FOREVER that works, but I really prefer the UD foundation. How would one go about trying to mix shades to get their perfect shade? Is it just better to stick with the already made shades? Just need any advice on this!
Hey guys , so i'm pretty new on makeup. I have dry skin and i'm a little bit white. So can you guys help me out from skin care till makeup( face makeup, and eyes and all the brushes that i should use). Thank you .
I've tried different primers and no primers, different foundations, different white foundation MIXERS to lighten all my different foundations. I've increased my moisturizing, tried different methods of exfoliating my face, using sponges, Beauty Blenders, foundation brushes, stippling brushes, and even gotten rid of all the peach fuzz on my face. Nothing helps. I always end up with these patchy clumpy pieces of foundation all over my face, even in areas that aren't usually dry on me. My nose looks like a mottled flaky mess and in short my foundation just looks disgusting. I'm not slopping it on my face either like the "friendly" girls on another forum kindly suggested I was. I put maybe a pea sized amount on each cheek, my chin, and my forehead and this still happens. NARS Sheer Glow caked, Illmasqua Skin Base caked like mad, Laura Mercier's Silk Creme is caked on my face as we speak, Kat Von D caked (of course), Loreal's Lumi cakes. The only base makeup I have ever been able to use without it doing this is Missha's Signature Perfect BB cream in #13, but I cannot build up the coverage at all without it getting cakey in spots. I don't understand what's wrong with my face or what I'm doing so wrong. Sephora associates don't know what's what to suggest (I just get more moisturizers tossed at me). My face feels and looks flawless and soft without makeup, but the second foundation comes into contact with it everything goes to the dogs and I just don't get it. If anyone has a suggesting as to what is happening and how I can prevent it I'd love to hear some input.
I'd like to try Cover FX Creme Concealer, but I don't have time to swing into the store. Currently I'm using Cover FX Mineral Pressed Powder in shade N30. I'm leaning toward shade N Medium in the concealer. Seeking advice...thoughts, tips....should I go lighter with the concealer?
it works, but with summer ending and my summer "tan" (if you can call it that) fading, I don't know what to do. I know I won't be able to find a match in her foundation line with my lighter complexion but the formula is perfect for my skin. It sits matte and lets my natural oil give me a slightly dewy- NATURAL LOOKING skin glow. I love the coverage and how it smooths out all my weirdly shaped pores, and it works with my Smashbox primer. My only gripe which I was able to look past is sometimes it smells like doritos and you have to work fast with it. Current color IQ is #3Y03 In other words, I'm looking for a full (I mean I don't want to see my actual face full) coverage foundation that works best with combo-oily skin that is similar in texture and formula to Kat Von D's. (Preferably with packaging that allows you to get all of the product...)
