Hello ladies, so face powders have always been my issue. They are too expensive because I go through them really fast. A high end powder lasts me a month, two at the most. So even though I prefer to use high end makeup and don't remember last time being at drugstore, powders is the thing I only buy at Ulta and buy it super cheap. Right now I use Maybelline FIT ME powder. So my question is: 1) Do high end powders also last you that little? Is it just me? How do you save on powders? Because I never see them in sephora favorites sets, or gwps, or samples, or anywhere where we get goodies for free! 2) Any drugstore face powders you would recommend? Thanks

Hi I currently use Merle Norman Lasting foundation. That stuff stays on! I live in a humid environment and am I outside a lot. I don't have time to stop and look at my face to see how oily it is or not. But I'm in a mood for a change. What foundation out there will stay matte, stay on, but not look or feel like I have a layer of foundation on? Thank you.
I recently went to a contouring class through Sephora and, since I have dry skin, I was advised to use the Anastasia cream contour pallet. I absolutely loved it, the product was easy to use and looked great. However, a couple hours after application, my face started itching. My skin type is dry and sensitive and I use dermatologist approved moisturizers and cleansers but normal Tarte or Bare Minerals for my face. I figured the Anastsia would be fine but maybe not? Is there any advice on another good cream contour kit for sensitive skin? Or should I put something in-between my foundation and the contour kit to help? Thanks! Amanda
Hello I need some major help, lol My skin tone is pale, but yellowish and with lots of redness. I use the sephora primer, MUFE HD foundation and the Becca Concealer and Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. In selfies I look fine, but as soon as I take a pic with flash i look horrible, like a ghost, like I am wearing too much makeup, makeup that isn't the right color for me. is it just because the Flash pictures are HD+flash=horrible makeup? I looked up a few youtube videos, but they didnt really help. so I am posting my question here and will upload pictures... please help. what am I doing wrong? should i just wear darker foundation and concealer? but then it will be too dark in daylight...ugh I dont know i have attached a few pictures so you guys can hopefully see what I am talking about . thanks in advance
Hi, guys! I live in the MIDDLE. OF. NOWHERE right now so I can't actually get to a department store, Sephora, Ulta, CVS....anything, which makes it impossible for me to find a matching foundation. I ordered a bunch of color samples from Choix to see if any match me, and of course, not a single one does. But I was wondering, if I swatched them (and some foundations I ownI) on me in natural sunlight and posted a picture, would anyone be able to help me out? Or just give opinions on what shades in any formula that I should look into? It's a bit sad always looking like a floating head in photos. My face always looked either too dark or too pink! I think everyone understands the struggle to a point.
I'm mid 40's, with a very oily t-zone. I don't have wrinkles, which is what it seems all the anti-aging stuff targets, but I do have an uneven skin texture I'd like to smooth out and large pores I'd like to minimize without having it all slide off my face by the end of the day. I have a gift card and am ready to try something new!
I have very oily skin with large pores and very acne prone skin. I really would like to find a primer and foundation (and other face makeup-highlight/contour palette would be great!) that works well for oily skin and lasts all day. I work 12 hour shifts and have essentially stopped wearing makeup because less than halfway through my shift, it has become this oily, creased mess :/ So far I have tried Smashbox's photofinish, I used bare minerals primer, Benefit's Pore Perfect, and drugstore brands as well but nothing seems to work. I LOVE wearing makeup so this has been a really down time not wearing any at all, but wearing nothing is much better than dealing with the half day wear that turns into a grease/oil trap
I have been on the hunt for my holy grail foundation and/or BB/CC cream for a couple of years now. I haven't found a formula I love, and the ones that I liked would oxidize. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am very fair, and I have tried Tarte Amazonian Clay (felt a little too heavy on my skin), Cover FX Natural Finish (broke me out from how oily I would get), Estee Lauder Double Wear (oxidized), plus several other high end and some drugstore as well. I would love full coverage for when I want to go full glam, but am also looking for something for every day to go to class (something light so my skin can breath a little). I have some redness and scarring from acne, but I love my freckles that I have so I don't necessarily want to go full beat on a daily basis - which is why I would love BB/CC cream and foundation recs! I do have some active acne, and a few dry spots as well. But, some oil control for my EXTREMELY sensitive skin would be amazing! Thank you for your help!!!
Hi, Looking for foundation that is not too cakey, blends well, doesn`t appear cakey and is great for olive tones . Most foundations look orange-ish on me despite being similar to my shade before it dries. I do put primer but I find some foundations wear off a lot faster despite this, so something that lasts all day as well. I normally use beauty blenders to apply. Must be: Vegan + Cruelty Free Thanks!
What shade would I be in Nars sheer foundation?! (Currently my perfect shade in Nars tinted moisturizer is Finland) I don't have a store near me so I order online. My skin tone is definitely more yellow than pink.
Hi everyone, I use "almost powder make-up, no 3-light" from clinique. I couldn't find it here and I can't go to any store (very soon mom-to-be) to check for an alternative. Could you advice me something comparable (similar price, easiness etc)? Also I would be grateful if you could also let me know which colour I should buy. As said, I can't go to a store and check for myself
I have been on the quest for the right foundation and I keep coming up empty... I'm looking for a build able medium coverage. I have normal/dry skin and I feel like the products I've tried with a matte finish leave my face looking cakey and dusty. Has anyone with moderately dry skin have any hydrating recommendations that also won't leave me looking oily? Thank you!
