Hey ladies! I'm stuck in the hunt for BB creams! I have a neutral skin tone, and i feel like every BB cream i find is either too pink toned, or too orange! I LOOOVE the smashbox photoready BB cream! The light/neutral shade is perfect for me, but the price! Yikes! I am a shade N2 in Estee Lauder double wear, if that helps. Does anyone know of a BB cream that has a good, not so pricey, light/neutral shade??? Thanks everyone!
I am dying to know how to contour and I can't just follow a video because when I do I end up looking like a spray tan gone way wrong. Can or if I go into Sephora can they tell me/teach me how to do it? If so how much would it cost.
My color IQ number is 2R03. I am looking for a tinted moisturizer. I am most interested in Smashbox, Tarte, Too Faced, or Urban Decay. Can anyone tell me what shade I would be in any of these?? Thanks so much!!!!
Hello all. I was wondering if someone could make a shade recommendation for me. I want to try Diorskin Forever Flawless foundation, but I'm not sure which shade to choose. I have worn Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc and Mac Studio Fix in NW13. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you!
Hello! I want to purchase the MAC pro long wear concealer but have never bought a MAC product (this will be my first and I'm so excited!) so I don't know what shade to buy. I'm currently using the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer in the shade Medium1 Custard. I was thinking MAC NC20 or NC30 matched the best to that. Im purchasing online and not in-store so I want to make sure I get the best match. Any help would be appreciated!
Hi, I am looking for a new foundation to try. I have dry and very sensitive skin I am currently using benefits hello flawless oxygen wow, and the colour is "I'm plush and precious, petal". and I am thinking to get one of those foundations from YSL or Giorgio Armani. I tried YSL's LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating, shade 30 but I think it kinda dries out my skin but I liked the finish look. Sephora that located near my area does not carry Giorgio Armani so that I could not try but I have heard so many people complimenting the product. So I'd like to get some recommendation of those foundations or others that would work for me as well as the shade Thanks.
I am trying to find out how I may attain the "milky white complexion that many women sport. Is there a cream that I can use to get that complexion. I have heard the term BB cream being mentionned, so I went out to purchase it and it didn't work at all. In addition, apparently many of these women rub on their body too.
I haven't been able to find it anywhere, so assuming it's discontinued. I've been wearing it for years, so any suggestion on a similar brand/color? My skin is oily so I prefer matte, the syracuse color is perfect in the summer and I mix it with Smashbox BB creme in light in the winter. I have dark brunette/brown eyes. Thanks!
I'm 55, with nice skin and completion. I wear a CPAP machine at night and it takes much longer for skin to rebound from impressions from the mask. I'm looking for a foundation that smooths my skin, promotes elasticity. What cosmetic line do you recommend?
I have every problem under the sun. Anyone know of a miracle foundation that is good for... HUGE pores Redness Sometimes dry, sometimes oily skin Wrinkles / Fine lines Always looks like makeup is cakey no matter what I do. I need a miracle! Hehe Thanks
My skin is normally very oily, but in these frigid winter months the T-Zone of my face (under eyes, cheeks, nose, chin, between brows) have been super dry and flaky.. but yet oily at the same time. These areas have not been loving any of my foundations (Estee Lauder Doubler Wear, Makeup Forever Matte Velvet). Within 5 minutes of putting them on, the foundation in these areas looks blotchy and speckled and cracked and gross. I have been moisturizing religiously and gently exfoliating with a wash cloth. I make sure to wait at least 10 minutes after moisturizing to put on my primer (that I ALWAYS makes sure has the same base as my foundation whether that be silicone, oil, or water based). I use my beauty blender to apply the foundation to make sure there is no microexfoliation. So, PLEASE, someone help me out here. Which foundation, or formula of foundation, would be my best best for actually staying on my face???! Despite the dryness on my cheeks, I still have large pores and my skin gets oily somewhat quickly (even the dry areas have a nice coating of grease by the end of the day) Any suggestions?
I'm searching for something that will make me appear as if I've been out in the snow for awhile or in the heat. Something that will give me a natural, rosy look. I should also mention that I have oily/acne-prone skin, so something natural and non-greasy would be preferred. Also, NO SPARKLES OR SHIMMER.
I love a luminous look, but I feel like because I'm pale (really pale) nothing is enough of a contrast to actually make my skin look luminous. Anyone have any suggestions of foundations, powder, or any other product that would achieve this look? For reference, I have tried and do not care for the following as it just seems to not show up on my skin: Benfit Watt's Up, Nars Albatross, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, Bare Minerals Illuminating Mineral Veil. I'd like an all over glow, so perhaps a luminizing foundation (eyeing the Nars one), but am also interested in any finishing powders or highlighting creams/sticks to apply to my cheekbones.
The kit seems really nice, and not too bad of a price for 6 shades. But I have light skin (pink undertones) and I've never bought any of the Anastasia products before (although Ive heard good stuff), so I am not sure if it is worth it or to go with something else? Thanks.
Can someone tell me what would be my match for the new BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted hydrating Gel cream if I was color matched to the Bare Linen 03 BareMinerals liquid foundation? Thank you, Rhonda
So I am patiently waiting for the Too Faced Contour palette coming soon.....but I have been wondering if the sticks or cream based products are better than the powder based products? Any opinions out there? Thanks in advance!
I used up all of my Hourglass primer bottle and, although I enjoyed it, didn't feel that the value sized bottle lasted long to justify spending $50 on the full-size. Does anyone have any recommendations to replace this primer? I'm completely out, and I'm actually running to Sephora tonight to get more. Thanks, loves!
Typically, for my face I start with a Josie Marin light oil for moisture then use Bobbi Brown BB cream topped with a setting powder and then Bobbi Brown powder bronzer. Should I be using a foundation before I use a BB cream?
Hey everyone! I need help matching the right shade of sephora's Teint infusion Etheral Natural Finish Foundation. I'm Golden Neutral in Clinique's Even Better foundation and NC30/35 in Mac's Studio Finish. Can't seem to get color IQ to match me for this. Thanks for the help!
I'm in the search of a full/medium coverage foundation! I've been looking into Estée Lauder double wear or kat von d lock it foundation So I use to be super super dry, but here lately I think some of the medication that I'm on has made me combo, because I'm definitely not oily but still not completely dry, my main questions to those of you that have either of those foundations are: Do they oxidize? Are either of them drying? Best way to apply them? Im also up for any other recommendations that you may have! thanks so much!!
Hello I am starting to do my makeup more often but I have to get more supplies I didn't start thinking about different makeup products that could be used until now I have heard about primers and pore minimizers I was wondering.. Is a primer and a pore minimizer the same thing or should I look at them as two different products?
Hey all, I'm currently used KVD Lock It Powder Foundation in Light 49. I absolutely love it, however ive had it for less then a month and im already seeing the bottom in the center and well i dont really want to be buying one every month and a bit. I will keep buying but I was wondering what else people would recommend thats comfy to wear and not too cakey. as well i do have slightly oily skin, mainly my forhead and nose while cheeks seem to be dry with this winter. Would love everyone's input on what they use and what they love
