I'm looking for make-up for prom, and all i have is warm, gold toned highlighters. Unfortunately, my dress is navy with silver beading. I need help finding a beautiful highlighter to blind the night away. So, does anyone know an amazing cool toned highlighter?

Hi, so I love my Tarte clay mask foundatuion, but the only problem is, it doesn't stay on very well? It comes off very easily. Any ideas on how to make it stay on better?

I am looking for a cruelty-free product that doesn't give flashback. Which is better-colored setting powder or a translucent powder? and pressed or loose powder? just what is the best way to set foundation?

Hi everyone! So the past few weeks I've been really into stick foundations - both the hourglass vanish and the lancome teint idole. Both I love and find very similar except you need to swipe the lancome twice as much to get the same coverage as hourglass. That being said, the big problem is I can't get the foundation to "stick" to my nose or t-zone. I have applied with brush and beauty blender - brush application essentially wipes the foundation away, so beauty blender has been my go to.   I have tried pore minimizing primers - e.g. porefessional, tarte timeless smoothing, as well as guerlain l'or (whichcauses my foundation to stick in weird areas making it patchy...only with these foundations though, I love it otherwise), and the foundation just slides around my face and breaks up. I set with laura mercier translucent and then spray UD all-nighter. I LOVE these foundations, but I am scared to touch my face because it will remove my makeup. I have also tried no primer, just my moisturizer (see below), which is better but it still ends up sliding off my nose relatively quickly.   I consider my skin to be normal to dry. My skin routine is as follows:   Night time: Cleanse (amorepacific) w/ foreo luna 2, tone (pixi glow tonic), facial sleeping oil (kiehl's), moisturize (first aid beauty)   Day time: Same as night time but no oil. I was using a serum before moisturizing but I took that out because I thought it was causing my makeup to slide around, but I think it's the silicone primers.   My next step is to try the veil mineral primer by hourglass.   Does anyone have any advice on how to keep my foundation in place? Also, I should mention that this problem happens with most foundations, nothing seems to want to stick! But it's particularly bad with stick foundations. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

I need help with foundation! I tend to be more on the oily side and want medium to full coverage. I have tried the Urban Decay All Nighter but did not like that! Also what could be the cause with it sinking in and looking splotchy?

Day to day I use Dr.Jart BB cream, which I like, but won't be repurchasing. I've used Matte and Poreless in 110 for days when I need coverage, but I just purchased a new bottle and....wtf...it isn't the same somehow? It won't blend into my skin at all and my concealer slides around on the top. So now I need a new foundation and I'd love to step it up from my usual drugstore brand (unless you know of a drugstore brand that is your holy grail).     I dont love full full full coverage. I'm a new mom and just don't have the time.  My skin is combo, dry right now due to hormones, but exfoliates well for a smooth canvas.  It's a little pink, which is all I really want to cover up with my foundation.   Help!

Help!  I am getting married in September this year.  My wedding will be outdoors and it will definitely still be pretty warm.  What foundation do you use to look flawless in photos that requires minimal touch-up?  For the most part, I have oily skin.  I do have some acne scaring that I will want covered.  I want something medium-full coverage that isn't going to separate or look cakey in my photos.  I don't live near a Sephora (closest one is an hour & a half away) and I wanted to narrow down my selection to get some samples next time I make the trek.

I've been wanting to try out the Double Wear foundation from Estee Lauder, but don't have a Sephora that carries it in-store to get matched. I decided to just purchase online and return it if need be, but now I need help finding a shade.   I've been using MUFE Ultra HD in the shade Y255 and it matches me perfectly. Can anyone recommend a double wear shade they think will work for me?   Please and thank you!        
Face
Anyone tried both? Or either? I have oily/combo skin so no matter how I set it, it will melt off eventually. Are they both needed?  Thanks in advance!
Face
So I've been on the hunt for a perfect foundation, and have been researching non-stop for the past couple weeks... I NEED HELP! I have combo skin (nose is oily + forehead & everywhere else is normal) with mild acne. I don't have any cysts or anything just some whiteheads here and there, and overall bumpy skin. I was looking for a foundation that is going to hydrate my dry areas but not add too much shine, so more of a satin or demi-matte finish. I also want it to look like skin with a medium, maybe full coverage. Longevity isn't a huge issue but preferably 7+ hours, but I just want it to look more natural and not emphasize my bumpy skin. I have narrowed it down to a couple... -Urban Decay Naked Skin -Smashbox Studio Skin -Lancome Teint Idole  -Clinque Superbalanced   From what options would work the best? I haven't gotten samples because I don't go into the store very often (don't love the customer service). Thank you!

I'm looking for a long wear foundation that has decent coverage and is still hydrating enough for my dry skin. I've tried samples of both the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation and the Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Foundation, but I can't decide which one to purchase. Dry skin girls, which foundation do you prefer?

I am currently wearing a 3.25. in Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless foundation. Once spring arrives, I'll wear a 3.5. I have cool toned skin with pink undertones. What shade would I wear in Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation? I purchased 52, but it's a little dark and will probably work fine in summer, but I'm hoping for a better match now.

I really want to try the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, but can't figure out which color I should order. I have a neutral undertone, brown hair/eyes, and wear Nars Sheer Glow in Deuville, Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska, Dior Airflash in 201, and Tarte Rainforest of the Sea in Fair Light Neutral. I find the Tarte matches my neck, but is too light for the rest of my skin. I have tried different matching tools online to match based off of the foundations listed above, but keep getting all sorts of different color matches. Anyone have a suggestion about which color I should go for?
Face
I need help! I want a natural everyday foundation. I have combination skin with not a lot of texture. I am in the color IQ 2y08 if someone could give me the best color match for it.    Which of these two is best??
Face
Hello all!   So my current best foundation color match is NARS Siberia. I've been using the Sheer Glow for the past three months and I'm still trying to "figure it out". I feel like the formula is really finicky and I have yet to find a good combination of primers and/or setting powder/spray to make it both last well & mesh well with my skin. I don't think it's a skincare problem as my skin has been relatively normal-dry these past few months (no big skin changes and my daywear moisturizer is relatively 'basic'. I save my layers of hydration for overnight).   So far things I have tried:   - Too Faced Hangover: helped hydrate dry patches that Sheer Glow emphasizes but doesn't help longevity. Sheer Glow still applies a little patchy over this - Becca Ever Matte: too matte for Sheer Glow which tends to emphasize any dry patch - Hourglass Mineral Veil: seems to be the best combo so far, but doesn't help with Sheer Glow longevity. Still totally starts breaking down/melting by hour three. - A single drop of argan oil: makes Sheer Glow apply so smooth and evenly BUT foundation is totally breaking up on my face a couple hours into wear. - RCMA No Color Powder (talc + silica): is okay, but makes Sheer Glow a little dry looking, doesn't totally help with lasting powder - CoverFx Illuminating Setting Powder: doesn't make Sheer Glow look dry, but definitely doesn't help with lasting powder - Urban Decay All Nighter spray: makes Sheer Glow tacky, maybe helps lasting power when in combo with a powder as well   For the sake of a control, all foundation application has been to dot it on with fingers and blend with beautyblender.   I've tried various combinations of one of the primers + powder + spray, primer + no powder, no primer + powder, etc. etc. It's been a long somewhat scientific process, haha.   I would just love for this foundation to work on me! I love the color and I can put up with the sheerness of it if I can just get it to work Most days in the morning I've been in too much of a rush to play this long layering game with Sheer Glow and I've been slapping a little Tarte shape tape everywhere and pretending it's foundation, lol   TLDR:  My question to those who currently use NARS Sheer Glow and it looks good on their skin. What combination of primer / powder / spray /technique do you use to make it wear nicely?

what is the color IQ of benefits hello flawless in shade ivory? that's what they matched me at the store but i forgot the #, thanks!

I want to get the Make Up Forever Mat Velvet and the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation. What colors should I get for those foundations? My old foundations are SmashBox Studio Skin Hydrating in 0.5 and the Clinique Superbalanced Silk in Silk Porcelain.

I have the Lancome one in N90 and it darkens/ go orange after a few minutes; does the AP one do this? Also, is 102 in AP LIGHT enough for me? TIA

I am beginning the makeup trend, and I wanted to start with Sephora like/priced products. Also, I've found that the drugstore concealers don't work at all for me, so what could I use to lighten my skin tone after I put foundation on? I've heard "baking" is a good way to lighten the skin tone, but what powder do you guys recommend? Or what's a good concealer that will lighten the tone after foundation?

If Im a deeper warm caramel skin with golden undertones, what would my foundation color be in Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation? Im not sure which one I should get.

Hey guys,   I'm getting married in June and I'm definitely in need of some makeup recommendations! I'm going to be doing my makeup myself and it's going to need to last from about 10am until 10pm...so pretty much all day, the majority of which will be outside. I've tried so many different foundations and I feel like I have yet to find something that can do everything I need it to. I've been using estee lauder double wear foundation for staying power but I feel like it starts to make my skin look dry and kind of a little more cement-y than I'd like, plus I get definite flashback with it so that's a problem. Basically I need something that will stay on my face through the hot weather, stay looking flawless and not cling to dry patches, and look beautiful in pictures. Any recommendations for primer, concealer, foundation, powder, and lip color is welcomed!
