Complexion Rescue vs. Beauty Balm
I was wondering what everyone preferred. The Bareminerals Complexion Rescue or the Dr. Jart Beauty Balm. I have the Complexion Rescue, but I've been wanting to try the Beauty Balm and was wondering if it is better.

Best Setting Powder - Humidity/Heat
I am looking for the best face setting powder for a hot, humid climate. Or someone who works in a kitchen. You know - fast-paced, hot conditions. I don't need suggestions for under eye nor finishing powders. I'm looking for a powder that helps foundation stay on all day. Locks it in. Must be suitable for medium to tan skin tones. No flashback hazards. Prefer a natural to matte finish. Not really into shimmer. It's a plus if the powder provides coverage, but translucent is fine. I'm looking for something that helps make your face bulletproof. Any suggestions from those of you who've tried it all?

How can you find the right foundation shade online when buying a new one?
I'm not good at picking the right shade when buying a new foundation online. Every brand seems so different in their color coding. I would rather go to a Sephora and compare shades to my skin, but I don't have one near me. How do you guys do it?

Does anyone have any primer, foundation, concealer, and powder suggestions for dry skin? I also have red spots/acne and large pores I'm looking for a primer that'll smooth and hydrate my skin as well as make my makeup last all day.

On a quest for a cheap powder
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

best foundation for oily skin
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.

Contouring for sensitive skin
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!

foundation/concealer/powder flashback, I just don't know.
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

Foundation swatches to find shade
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.

Makeup/primer for oily skin
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
