Hi, After applying my liquid foundation, my face looks fine. Although, once I apply my powder it makes the peach fuzz on my face more noticeable . With no makeup on, or just the foundation I can't notice the fuzz at all. But, once the powder is applied you can notice it. It also looks like my face is too powdery . Right after applying the powder, you can really notice the powder on my face and it looks like there is a lot. (The powder doesn't blend into my face nicely). Are there any tips to prevent this problem? Also, is there a certain brand of powder that you use that looks very natural on the face without looking 'powdery'? Thank you!
I'm looking to get the It Cosmetics CC cream and I was wondering what my best option would be for setting this. Do I need to set it, should I use a translucent powder or can I use a spray? I like the coverage this gives on its own so I don't need a powder to help add more coverage. Thanks!
Hi Everyone! For sooo many years I have bounced back and forth from CoverGirl & Revlon Foundations! Just recently I decided I needed a change! I went to my local Sephora and had one of the girls there assist me in picking out a foundation, she was super helpful and ended up choosing the perfect colour for my skin tone! I ended up going with the Sephora brand, I took it home and used it a few times but in the end I didn't fall in love with it, I felt my pores looked huge, and my face had the more "painted on" look. I am light skinned tone, not quite dry skin, but it isn't oily either, some light redness, and around mid afternoon I notice I always need a foundation touch up (with using my drugstore brand I mean) - and my face usually gets a little shine in my t-zone area around that time as well. Some people tell me I'm best off with a matte foundation, but really I have no idea and am looking for alllll the help I can get! I am thinking about returning the Sephora brand foundation and trying something different, any suggestions are greatly appreciated! PS. I also have been told I should have asked for some testers first! OOPS! Thanks in advance
hi! i recently bought too faced's "born this way" foundation but i find that both that and make up forever's hd foundation just seems to enhance and draw attention to every single flaw, texture, and bump on my skin :^( i tried diluting it with moisturizer and even using a drop of oil but both of those things helped only a tad; my skin still looked awful! i ideally really want a dewy, medium coverage foundation, but at this point i'm willing to go all the way with a full coverage foundation if it manages to appear dewy... i'm just not sure what to do! :^(
I need some help matching a shade. What color Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer would match Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Pearl? Thanking you in advance for your time and insight.

I have oily skin and I have the Loreal Matte Foundation in 102 shell beige which is the wrong undertone and too dark and the Maybelline Matte foundation in 115 ivory which is the wrong undertone and too dark and orange as well. I bought a foundation whitener and it doesn't seem to help. I have tried mixing the foundations in different combinations to make it match my skin but it didn't work. More than anything they are either too dark or not my skin undertone. There aren't very many foundations in the drugstore good for oily skin. I would buy a foundation from Sephora but I am a broke university student. I am going into a Sephora today to get colour matched and maybe get samples of foundations. What should I do? Try to buy another foundation to mix into the 2 I already have? I just don't want to waste the 2 foundations even though I have already spent the money.
I have combo (but mostly dry) sensitive skin that's prone to redness. I currently use Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer (Cameo), but am looking for something with fuller coverage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ladies!
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?
I am 23 and and normal or oily skin (throughout the day it gets oily). I went and a worker paired me up with the "Born This Way" foundation and the "IT" clear powder. I liked the foundation, not so much the powder. Through out the day, I become so so cakey (I use a setting spray and beauty blender once my face is put on to help really set the makeup) and I ALWAYS get thick, gross looking "smile lines" that I have to smooth out with my fingers by the middle/end of the day?? I'm not so into the thick look, I like to be a little more natural but also able to cover small imperfections...I am a nurse and a mom so my get ready time in the morning is almost non-existent. I feel a full coverage powder would help with my get ready time in the morning and wont leave me looking so cakey by the end of the day. I feel like since I'm wanting a more light, natural look I should go with Clinique or Bare Minerals? TIA ))
What foundation should I use in MUFE ultra hd liquid foundation if I am a color IQ of Y109. I have tried coming in store and trying on the different shades but each representative ended up telling me different matches. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
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!
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?
I am suffering from being fed up with redness on my cheeks! just below my eyes. I am looking for a temporary cover up as well as any suggestions on a way to start helping it potentially go away! I'm up for any suggestions anyone may have! thank you!
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'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?
