Does anyone have any long wear foundations suggestions? I have tried everything-primer, setting spray... and for the MUFE it just slides off my face within a few hours Any suggestions??
I have breakout prone skin and neither one of these bother me. I prefer the Mat velvet because it's more of a liquid texture while the tarte one feels kind of mousy. But sephora hardly ever has my shade in it.
humm... I should go to a store to get matched or see if my HD shade carries over. I am very pale as it is, so I need to get matched foundation instead of the "do it yourself" approach
Which primer to be exact, and is it the matte powder or the Pro Finish/multi-use powder?
I take it the LM is for Laura Mercier? Which powder and primer are you using from that line?
Which specific moisturizer from Murad?
It is the primer and powder from the MUFE starter kit.
I use the regular primer from Laura mercier (you were correct on that!) and it was the invisible loose setting powder. Forgot to mention have also tried the Rimmel stay matte powder and it was worse
Moisturizer is the skin perfecting lotion. Have also used moisture surge from clinique, but I use that mostly at night
What foundation are you using sandwiched between the MUFE primer and the HD powder? Is it the HD liquid foundation that comes in the starter kit as well? The finish and formula may not agree with your skin if you notice it not setting as well or if skin is oily as the HD liquid foundation has a satin/natural finish, you might opt for something that's a little more matte to where the "moistness" of the formula won't prevent the foundation from actually setting.
I know you've posted a couple of threads in regards to face/complexion make up, but give us a run down of your skin type and foundations you're using in combination with the MUFE and LM products.
I have used the HD founation, the tarte foundation powder, and revlon color stay (not that bad, but the smell was so bad I couldn't continue to use every day) I have acne on my chin and forehead, and black heads around my nose, with a few break outs there every so often. my cheeks are normal, but can get dehydrated. the t zone is an oil spill in the sun, and even in the winter (dont really have winter where I am), it breaks down the foundation within a few hours, and slides off. I want something that is long wearing and sets better on my skin than the HD and hopefully stays on longer!
Try either MUFE's Velvet Mat liquid foundation or Tarte's Amazonian Clay liquid foundation. These formulas are a tad thinner than the KVD so you'll get that nice matte finish with oil control without feeling like you have as much on.
You're welcome! Play around with your routine, perhaps one foundation will work better with one particular primer, mix and match and give it a couple of tries and compare results and wearability!
