foundation for very textured skin???
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! :^(

Drugstore foundations Not matching my skin
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.

full coverage powder?
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 ))

Recommendations for bridal makeup that will last
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!

Best primer under stick 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!!!

What foundation do you use for long wear and photos?
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.

What foundation to try now?!
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!
