s on make-up
I'm 16 & I need some suggestions on what facial make-up I should buy. I have normal-sensitive skin & I’m very pale. I decided I need to get different make-up, but I don’t know what kinds really work. The make-up I buy doesn't have to be at Sephora; I just need make-up that is affordable (preferably under $20), that really works & is long lasting.
foundation (liquid or cream)
I would recommend that you buy a good foundation primer, there are different types, depending on if you have dry, combo or oily skin. Then you could use drugstore foundation and it would stay in place much better than without.
Makeup For Ever has a nice primer for normal to oily skin, All-Mat, which will help keep your makeup in place all day. As for drugstore foundation, I have heard that L'Oreal makes good ones.
I would suggest Clinique's products, they have foundations and tinted moisturizers for every skin type that won't break you out. They are also not too too pricey, I believe most of their products are under $20. Also, to save money, you can use your foundation and use 2 layers where you would apply concealer.
I agree with prettyinpa that it would be wise to invest in Make Up For Ever's All Mat Foundation Primer because it will even out your complexion and make you foundation look great and last all day. You can find it here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml;jsessi
As far as good drugstore foundations and powders, I have heard that a good one that is suitable for all skin types is L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Makeup. It is designed to match your skin’s own unique tone, texture and clarity.
L'Oreal True Match also makes a powder that works the same way to match your skin's own tone, texture and clarity.
The two should work well together since they are made to be used in conjuction with one another.
I hope this helps you.
