I have dry/combination skin, but my foundations oxidize
Help I have dry combination skin, I use a good serum, moisturizer, hourglass mineral veil primer, setting powder and setting spray as well and no matter what I do, I can't prevent my foundations from oxidizing I've tried all ranges of foundations - from highend to drugstore and from moisturizing creamy ones to dry matte ones.. UD naked, EL double wear, GA lasting silk, Nars sheer glow, Toofaced born this way, etc all are at least 2 shades darker about 4 hours later

How to avoid matte foundation from looking flaky and dry on skin?
Hello everyone! I recently purchased a matte foundation palette (Ben Nye to be specific), since I am starting out on my makeup artist career. I had such high expectations from this product! When I tried it on myself last night, it looked TERRIBLY bad. I was SO disappointed, and still feel like this. It looked VERY dry on my skin, it looked cakey, was hard to blend...just terrible. I'm only sorry I spent so much $ on this product. Any recommendations on how to make it smoother rather than dry, or any other foundation recommendations for all skin types?   HELP!

Back to School makeup?
I need help finding a powder/bb cream/foundation for school!   I'm fair with combo-oily skin (oily in t-zone, normal/dry with KP on cheeks). I want something that feels lightweight but lasts all day with my crazy skin. I also want something that will be natural looking---I stick to light neutral looks for everyday occasions, and my school allows only modest makeup (no neon yellow eyeshadow or black lipstick). As far as acne, I have very minor blemishes/blackheads, but redness is somewhat of a concern for me, mostly on my cheeks.   I'd appreciate recommendations on face products (foundations, primers, concealers, powders, etc.) from Sephora, the drugstore, MAC, or even other stores! I just want something comfortable and nice-looking

ABH Concealer shade recommendation for pale-**bleep** girl with neutral skin?
I have two tones in my face. The more prominent one is that pale olive colour on my cheeks. Everything looks too orange or pink on me. What would be best for me. Shade 1 or 1.5? I'm not ghostly white btw. But pretty pale.   For reference, NC15 is my shade in Mac Prolongwear concealer and I consider it a little light for my skin. But I rather light than too dark. Which NC20 is.

How to stop foundation from breaking up? :/
I have combination skin: dry on my cheeks and very oily on my t-zone, especially because it is really humid where I live. My foundation stays put all day everywhere on my face, but on my nose, especially on the creases on the sides of my nostrils.   I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear lately and it controls my oil the best, and I have even tried mattifying primers with UD's Deslick setting spray. This all helps with the oiliness, but my foundation still breaks up/creases on the sides of my nose. I also set my foundation with the Laura Mercier setting powder, could I be using too much? How can I stop this from happening? :/   Also, any tricks for preventing your eyeglasses from rubbing off your foundation?

Try/Flaky facial spots
Around my nose, and chin is where it gets dry and flaky. After applying foundation I can see my foundation being sinked into my pores on my nose. My chin has a couple pimples and I can see dry outlined circles. I tried using a moisturizer along with a face primer and that didn't help, but with a light concealer over my blemishes it looks cakey . Any ideas or tips?

Favourite Tinted Moisturizers?
I've worn medium-full coverage foundation ever since I can remember, and I'm looking to switch to something a little more lightweight (for summer, at least.) My skin is fairly oily, very sensitive, and acne prone. I also have some hyperpigmention and red marks from past acne. I'm looking for a tinted moisturizer that is long wear and has decent coverage, while still feeling light. Any suggestions from those that use tinted moisturizers would be great!

Powder HELP
  Hello! I just got the Josie Maran foundation and It has a very glowy finish. I have dry skin so I love this foundation-- its so hydrating, but I would like to get a powder to set it.

How do I apply foundation to combination skin?
I have tried to all the things I can think of to get foundation to properly stay on my skin and not flake off in the dry spots or look cakey in the oily spots. How do you properly apply foundation to these areas to make it look like a smooth application.   I do exfoliate and blot the oily areas best I can before applying and after I take the make up off.

Foundation in the heat help!
I am currently using Guerlain Lingerie foundation. I have combo with oily t-zone. Problem I have noticed is the Guerlain just does not wear well in the heat. I use the Urban Decay pore primer on my t-zone and too faced hangover primer on my cheeks. The foundation seems to break up on my t-zone quite badly. Even with setting with Laura Mercier translucent setting powder.    Any suggestions for a new foundation during the summer months? I am wanting medium to slight full coverage. And long lasting.   Or suggestions for different primer(s) to use?
