what are your thoughts? sometimes i feel like my foundation is too heavy (i know i could use a lighter coverage, but i always feel like those don't do anything) so i was wondering what people think about wearing concealer without foundation and if anyone has any tips?

I am using Becca in Olive. In the summer it was great, but my skin is a little lighter now and it makes me look like I put tanner on. Will Buttercup work if I'm just a tad lighter? I also use CoverFX in G50, which seems to be a good match, but I like to mix it up and the coverage Becca gives is great. Thanks!
I have been trying so hard to get a smoother foundation finish but its not working! lol ive moisturize and put a primer on my skin. I exflioate twice a week and when I do I exfloiate before I put my makeup up on. Lately im starting to hate the way my makeup looks my pimples poke through alot and my face has a bumpy look to it. Can anyone please help me on what I should do. I have dry skin and I am currently using Mac Studio Fix in NC 50 and NYX HD concealer. Am I using the wrong foundation?
Hello, I am currently using the Full Cover Concealer from MUFE in No.7 Sand and it was great during the summer time. And now, when we hits colder months in Canada, the concealer still do its job in terms of concealing and long-lasting and here comes the problem; the concealer look dried up and a bit caked on. I have tried mixed a little bit of the Diorskin Star Foundation with it to increase the "blendability" for the concealer. Afterward, it does made the blending nice and easy but it was not very skin-like. Now, I do moisturize well with Fresh Lotus Face Cream and Dior Hydralife Sorbete Serum. My skin is exfoliated with Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid as well as Clarisonic before hand so no dry patches whatsoever. Now, can beauty experts suggest some tips and tricks make the concealer look skin-like while maintaining the full full full coverage of the concealer?
Hi guys! I currently use Estee Lauder Double Wear liquid foundation. Over that, I highlight using Revlon PhotoReady concealer and a pharmacy brand powder bronzer (not sure of the name). I love makeup and have the application skills down. I even use a professional makeup mirror with special lighting that leaves my makeup looking great. I also use setting powder and a setting spray. However, when I get to school, you cannot tell that I highlighted or contoured. In fact, my foundation looks splotchy where I applied the highlighter. Should I not apply the foundation where I am going to highlight (under eye triangle)? Why doesn't it look good in school- but seems to look great in most other places? My school has fluorescent lighting, but there is another girl in my school who uses the same highlighter and bronzer and hers looks flawless all day! I would love any tips or suggestions you may have! I've attached some pictures of what my makeup looks like right after application. Thank you!
I didn't exactly know what to name this post, excuse the confusion. Here's what happened: During the OH SO GREAT VIB Sale, I bought a few itmes (cologne, perfume, highlights) and added a few samples and BI Point Perks that I wanted to try. One of those samples was the Becca Ever-Matte PPP. I have never had luck with other primers (I have extremely oily skin) besides the NYX Pore filler, but as a VIB, I wanted to continue to give Sephora all my money without having to travel to Target or Ulta for just a primer Lol... Well... When I decided to use the sample, it was a bit more chunky than expected. I chalked it up to the weather. I put it on... felt a tingle... then my skin tightening... As I wait for it to dry a bit, I go and reach for my foundation... and as soon as I look in the mirror, my face is GHOSTLY white and dry! I wiped it all off with a cleansing wipe but now my face really burns and still feels very tight. You know that feeling when you have a cleansing mask on? Yeah, not very comfortable. Has anyone else had this happen???
I know there are a lot of contouring threads but I wanted to hear everyones thoughts on these two buzzed about products. What do you guys think? Which one to have, love, or like better? I don't have either but I am looking into purchasing one of them.
Hi ladies! I used to love Benefit Dandelion as the most mistake proof way to get a natural flush. Until I realized it had a high amount of titanium dioxide which causes acne for me (deal breaker!!). So now I'm looking for a replacement, because I really love that super light satin/matte pink. Would love to hear any suggestions, please no glitterbombs. Thanks!
I'm sure this questions has been asked 100 times, so I'll make it 101. I am trying to pick out a shade of foundation from the Estee Laudar Double Wear. I only have a Sephore in a JC Penny near me and they don't care the foundation in store or I would go in and get colored matched. There are so many shades to chose from I just had to guess (doesn't any one else find it harder to find a shape when there are more options). How do I know if I'm a C, W or N? I decided to go with Fresco 2C3, which isn't a match. I can get away with wearing it but its too light. I usually wear MUFE in Matte Vellet + in 40 &45 during the fall and winter but the summer I move to 50. This is the only foundation I have tried from Sephora, other brands I use are drugstore. I would love if someone could point me in the right directions. Thanks!
Sephora has been out of stock online and in the LA region for MONTHS, and now they have taken it off of the website. But.... it's available from YSL, at Nordstrom (online and in-store in LA), and at Bloomingdale's (online and in-store in LA). I have heard rumors that Sephora is discontinuing this shade... but what gives? This is the equivalent to a MAC NC35-40, which is a very popular shade. Can someone tell me what is going on?
Dear All, Today Harvey Nichols (UK department store) sent me details of a new collection of sculpting products introduced by Rodial, which mix skincare with makeup in order to make sculpting one's face a breeze (apparently). I am intrigued, but have very little experience with the brand outside their Stem Cell Oil, which I love. Do any of you use Rodial products? If so, which? And what do you thick of them? Do they work? Are they game changers? Are you interested by their fusion of skincare and makeup to help make sculpting easier? I'm particularly excited about the cheek sculptor which plumps, as I have a very thin face, and don't want cheek fillers! I'd be grateful for any and all feedback and opinions offered! Thanks in advance!
I don't like liquid foudation, so I was using the Makeup Forever Duo Mat Powder. My shade is 214, but it a bit darker and way too red for me. I tried the lighter shade which the 209, and it is too light for me. So it seems that I don't have a good match in the Duo Mat. Should I try the Pro Finish Powder? What shade would I be? My skin is dry-combination, and I like a natural finish
hello.. i really do need some help in finding either a good foundation for oily skin or a primer. i notice that my foundation disappears/shifts on my nose, upper lip and chin all the time. the primers I've used are hourglass, benefit professional, tarte, smash box, givenchy.. foundations I've used would be from mac, makeup forever including mat velvet, and tarte. can someone pls offer some assistance. thanks
I don't think I've ever found one I don't like. Even the Chanel Camelia de Plumes (as seen below) that I thought would be too ashy on my skintone. So I'm wondering - what are your favorite highlighters?
Hourglass has discontinued its "Illusion Tinted Moisturizer (Oil Free) Broad Spectrum SPF 15". Can you recommend a similar product to replace this one? It's so light but covers beautifully, so disappointed I can no longer order it, and no Sephora store to visit here yet!
I have so many eyeshadows and just bought my first blush - imagine - there is a definite gap in my makeup collection. i have an old cargo blush and a mary Kay powder and just bought Nars orgasm multiple. what else should I be looking at if I want to have a couple of options in my repertoire
