Hi! So I've tried two high end foundations that were suggested to me by beauty store associates and neither of them work for me! I first tried Two Faced's Born This Way, and it was fine but not nearly enough coverage for me. Now I'm using KVD's Lock It, and at first it was perfect- perfect coverage, stayed on all day. But then it started oxidizing throughout the day and it would melt off my face, which feels really gross and looks even worse. I use it in combination with KVD's Lock It concealer under my eyes because I have dark circles (a product for that would be nice to know too!). I was just wondering if anyone has suggestions as to what foundation could give me full coverage and stay on all day without looking blotchy and discolored by the end of the day! I probably have combination skin but more oily. I live in NC so I need something that can stand up to humidity! Any other products (primers, concealers, etc.) that would help my problem would be greatly appreciated too! Thanks!
So...I've decided to change foundations. I can't decide which I should try though. I tried the KVD liquid/primer sample and was impressed with how it didn't break me out (this is a new experience in liquid and bb/ccs for me -- and I put that sample through the ringer!), but I prefer powders (I don't really want the sort of coverage liquids/creams give me on a day to day basis and ease of application is nice when you're running out the door to work). But I'm also intriqued by the Tarte Amazonian powder... Which would be best for: 50 year old, who doesn't need a full coverage (but likes to have that option for special occasions), has sensitive/combo skin that breaks out if offended by something, and needs something that will hold up for at least 8 hours at work? I haven't been color iq'd (and don't really have access), but I'm one of those difficult very light olive skin tones (I have brown/dark green eyes and, well had now it's 50% grey, brown/black hair with both dark red highlights) -- the KVD Medium 54 was about a shade too dark and a bit too yellow looking for this time of year, blended well (minimal line) but my son said I looked like I had a bit of a tan (but at least it didn't look too pink, orange, or ashy/chalky on me -- which I've had problems with in the past).
Does anyone have a good idea what kind of foundation would be good for oily/combination skin? I'm oily on my forehead and chin, dry around my nose, and I have fairly normal skin on the rest of my face. I was thinking about Kat Von D's Lock It! foundation, but I am a little unsure if that would be best. I read a lot of reviews, and people with my type of skin were kind of split. Some said it was the best, others said it made their skin worse. So I was also looking at Too Faced's Born This Way, since it was also recommended for my skin type. I'm currently using CoverGirl's TruBlend in l1 ivory. I'd like to find something better than this, because I believe it is part of the reason why I am still breaking out so badly, especially on my forehead. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great!! Thank you
I was wondering what everyone preferred. The Bareminerals Complexion Rescue or the Dr. Jart Beauty Balm. I have the Complexion Rescue, but I've been wanting to try the Beauty Balm and was wondering if it is better.
I am looking for the best face setting powder for a hot, humid climate. Or someone who works in a kitchen. You know - fast-paced, hot conditions. I don't need suggestions for under eye nor finishing powders. I'm looking for a powder that helps foundation stay on all day. Locks it in. Must be suitable for medium to tan skin tones. No flashback hazards. Prefer a natural to matte finish. Not really into shimmer. It's a plus if the powder provides coverage, but translucent is fine. I'm looking for something that helps make your face bulletproof. Any suggestions from those of you who've tried it all?
hello everyone, I hope you've had a fab day. I need your guys help because I need a matte foundation that is long wearing. I have very very oily skin and I would like to stay matte for a good portion of the day
My mom is interested in trying a primer for her foundation. She is 63 and her skin is normal to slightly oily in the t-zone. She'd like something to help keep her makeup on and help make any lines less visible. Thank you!!
I'm not good at picking the right shade when buying a new foundation online. Every brand seems so different in their color coding. I would rather go to a Sephora and compare shades to my skin, but I don't have one near me. How do you guys do it?
Does anyone have any primer, foundation, concealer, and powder suggestions for dry skin? I also have red spots/acne and large pores I'm looking for a primer that'll smooth and hydrate my skin as well as make my makeup last all day. I'm looking for a foundation that is full coverage and won't cake on, or extenuate my dry skin.
I recently went to a contouring class through Sephora and, since I have dry skin, I was advised to use the Anastasia cream contour pallet. I absolutely loved it, the product was easy to use and looked great. However, a couple hours after application, my face started itching. My skin type is dry and sensitive and I use dermatologist approved moisturizers and cleansers but normal Tarte or Bare Minerals for my face. I figured the Anastsia would be fine but maybe not? Is there any advice on another good cream contour kit for sensitive skin? Or should I put something in-between my foundation and the contour kit to help? Thanks! Amanda
Hello I need some major help, lol My skin tone is pale, but yellowish and with lots of redness. I use the sephora primer, MUFE HD foundation and the Becca Concealer and Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. In selfies I look fine, but as soon as I take a pic with flash i look horrible, like a ghost, like I am wearing too much makeup, makeup that isn't the right color for me. is it just because the Flash pictures are HD+flash=horrible makeup? I looked up a few youtube videos, but they didnt really help. so I am posting my question here and will upload pictures... please help. what am I doing wrong? should i just wear darker foundation and concealer? but then it will be too dark in daylight...ugh I dont know i have attached a few pictures so you guys can hopefully see what I am talking about . thanks in advance
Hi, guys! I live in the MIDDLE. OF. NOWHERE right now so I can't actually get to a department store, Sephora, Ulta, CVS....anything, which makes it impossible for me to find a matching foundation. I ordered a bunch of color samples from Choix to see if any match me, and of course, not a single one does. But I was wondering, if I swatched them (and some foundations I ownI) on me in natural sunlight and posted a picture, would anyone be able to help me out? Or just give opinions on what shades in any formula that I should look into? It's a bit sad always looking like a floating head in photos. My face always looked either too dark or too pink! I think everyone understands the struggle to a point.
Hello ladies, so face powders have always been my issue. They are too expensive because I go through them really fast. A high end powder lasts me a month, two at the most. So even though I prefer to use high end makeup and don't remember last time being at drugstore, powders is the thing I only buy at Ulta and buy it super cheap. Right now I use Maybelline FIT ME powder. So my question is: 1) Do high end powders also last you that little? Is it just me? How do you save on powders? Because I never see them in sephora favorites sets, or gwps, or samples, or anywhere where we get goodies for free! 2) Any drugstore face powders you would recommend? Thanks
