Q. Freckles problems
I usually wear powder foundation because I have freckles and I find that it doesn't cover them completely up and make my face look cakey. But does anyone have a recommendation for a liquid foundation? I'd really like to start wearing one

A. I am very freckled and I second the MUFE HD foundation recommendation! It is not cheap but it is very, very good.   For everyday, I don't even try to cover them up any... see post

What foundation are you using? If your foundation doesn't last, then everything you put on top won't last either. see post

Q. Can i use cream contour on top of powder foundation?
Or is it better to use liquid or cream foundation? Can someone explain which way is better and why? Thanks.

A. You would want to use a cream contouring product under powder foundation. Powder helps set it, if on top you'll lose the powder. see post

New Foundation for dry skin?
I am looking for a new foundation. I am 20 years old with very mild acne. I use a dermatologist approved moisturizer and face wash. My issue is with our weather. We get cold harsh winters that destroy the skin and cause it to get very dry. I started using foundation last year to see if it helped protect my face. It was a mousse foundation and it saved my skin dramatically! They have taken it off the market and yet again I am on the search to save my skin before the weather gets worse! My acne is very sparse and under control. I just need a foundation that will protect my skin and keep it from caking up or drying it out worse! Any suggestions?

How manys shades lighter should your concealer be than your foundatin?
I know that it should be lighter but exactly how lighter, btw I am using color 55 deep cocoa Sephora brand liquid foundation. But I am interested in NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and don't know what shade to use.

Looking for a liquid foundation
I am looking for a liquid foundation... I have oily skin and break out on my forehead and jaw line, I am not too worried about full coverage though, I would rather have something light to medium so my skin feels like it can breathe. A lot of my current makeup is matte so i am really interested in something illuminating and dewy...Have been reading about Yves Saint Laurent le teint touche eclat illuminating foundation, Diorskin nude skin-glowing makeup, Nars sheer glow foundation...I live too far from a store to go try things so just want some insight!

Can someone explain something to me about my skin tone and foundation?
Hiya.   I went it to try the Hourglass Veil Foundation, I was colour matched to Porcelain, but both the shop assistant and I agreed it was much too dark. She then asked what foundation I usually use, and when I mentioned it was NARS Santa Fe, she was shocked. She told me I have "the weirdest skin undertones" she's ever seen.   Basically, why does something meant for pale people come up incredibly dark on my skin, while something meant for medium skin tones work?   I'm a neutral undertone and I guess a light-medium skin tone? I can provide a half makeup/half no makeup face if it's wanted.   Cheers xoxo

Recommendations on foundation and brush?
Hi there guys, I've been on the hunt for my holy grail foundation and i just cant seem to find the right one. I've tried various of foundations, i think almost the entire store of sephora and still no luck. My skin is currently semi-okay, currently using something similar to retina. When I apply foundation, I make sure to moisturize before with clinique dramatically different gel, and I still somehow get dry spots on my cheek, I mainly just use a beauty blender but I'm open to buying a new brush. Could anyone recommend a foundation and brush that'll help with pores and oily/combination skin that somehow gets dry spots? I'm also wondering if MAC's studio fix concealer is good at hiding pores aswell

Concealer recommendations?
So I'm starting to think I need some concealer. Generally, I have always had really good skin. But lately, I have a spot on my chin and neck that is always broke out. I'm not sure who the best brands are for concealer. Something easy would be good. Any recommendations? I'm gonna have to get a color match because I'm also clueless about what shade I would wear. So far, online, I've looked at NARS and Stila.    Thanks!!
