Hey lovelies, So i know a lot of you own the original contour palette and love it... personally for me, it was too warm and not true "contour" colors other than fawn. I own shadowy from mac and its definitely too deep for every day use, and i was going to purchase sculpt... but do any of you suggest any of her new colors from the customizable palette? (She released a ton on her site!) you can drag and drop shades to create your own so it would be awesome if you could suggest the shades that are true contour colors... and if there are none, i will go for my sculpting powder Thanks for any feedback on this palette!
So I am 42 with oily/dull /acne prone skin with hyper pigmentation. (Sound fun) I use my Clairosonic followed by Ole Henricksen products. I have used BM oil control primer (nice) pore fessional (not too big of a fan) and smashboxs light ( verdict still out on this one) oh also LM mineral primer (nice) So first looking for a suggestion for a primer for oily skin, again currently just bought smashbox light. Foundation I wear BM matte (nice) and or MUFE duo compact, and I could go on with the foundations I have but those are the most used right now. i am always jealous when I see a woman with that supple skin, not too dewy nor matte, but looks nicely moisturized. I only have been able to achieve a matte look or oily look. Looking for a suggestion on a foundation. I have tried Tarte amazonian clay, and surprisingly looked extremely oily with that too. So if you say powder is the best way, I guess I will have to stick with that and use my Benefit high beam to try to make it look not so matte. I was curious how the Bobbi Brown stick is for oily skin. It's listed under options on their site for oily skin, yet not good with the reviews. Shade I am currently Sephora collection 8hr matte D33 (see, the list of foundations go on)
So I am always on the hunt for that "Miracle in a Bottle" I went into Sephora to try a new foundation that I have not worn yet. (Which I have worn a lot) I am 42 with acne/oily skin. I find a powder foundation works best, but love the way liquid looks instead. I was matched to #33 in the 8hr mattifying compact in the Sephora line. It looked good when she applied my makeup. Just wondering why there is not much talk about this one. I have the MUFE Duo and I would compare it to that. (or when wearing it I won't?) I have yet to wear it, just curious if anyone that has used this likes or dislikes it. Also wear MUFE HD (stinks for oily skin, and yes I cleanse with my Clarisonic, use the Ole henriksen line and always use a primer, currently the oily free one from Smashbox) also use MUFE Duo compact. Never tried the mat velvet, don't know why. Aveda, and BM (matte formula) Also SA applied with brush, I have been using my BM Kabuki brush, shall I apply differently??
So I've always used their matte loose foundation and while I love it I'm looking for something less "cakey" now with more of a beautiful sheer finish for my daily look. I've tried their new Skin Brightening Liquid Foundation and it just makes me look old since it settles into my lines and pores. I wish that one worked out because the brightening concept was pretty awesome : ( I see they have this "Ready" foundation? What are your thoughts on this foundation? Seems like it has good reviews but how does it compare to their loose foundations? Would you use the loose mineral veil with it or the matching Ready Veil?
Urban Decay's Naked foundation in 4.0 is an almost perfect match to my skin. I chose the concealer pencil in FBI for my dark circles. The concealer covers the circles but I look like I'm wearing red eyeliner all around my water line like I just spent the night crying my eyes out. Am I going too light with my color choice or do I need a color corrector instead?
Riders! I am looking at getting riding lessons, but I have never even put on a racing helmet, only ones for go carting with a head sock on. So my question is, will wearing a helmet rub makeup off? If I decide to not drive and ride everywhere instead, will I have to give up makeup?
i was wondering what concealer would be good to put over the bobbi brown corrector, without spending a lot and that would be a dupe for the bobbi brown concealer that you're supposed to put over the corrector and would last all day?
The lightest Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is still too dark for me and I was wondering if there were any good dupes for this foundation and the wonderful formula it offers. I heard the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr was good, any thoughts?
I have rosacea and my dermatologist recommended using a green based foundation to calm down the redness. I currently use Bare Minerals is this a green based foundation? What do you recommend? I like using a powder.
Hello! I have a question I am sure is asked a lot. I am having trouble finding a foundation, well kind of. I was matched in store for MUFE Mat Velvet+ in No. 20 Ivory. I do really like this foundation but since its summer I went back in to find something a bit lighter looking and a more natural finish. (I have Combo Skin that gets oily through the day on the forehead). I was matched with the tool they have now and was told I was 2Y04. Well now I am really lost, how do I know what color I am and how do I go about finding a shade for me with out having to go and try them all on and not get pushed into one I don't really like. When I go to find my color matches through the foundation I already have it comes up with 1R03 and a totally different set of colors. Now I have also gotten my hands on MUFE HD in 115 Ivory and it also looks good on me. So If you can help me out I would much appreciate it.
Hello makeup lovers! I'm looking for a new blush, but I have some requirements: 1) must come with a brush, for touchups on the go 2) powder, since I use powder foundation 3) nice natural tone, prefer pink or peach, I have fair skin (I wear MUFE Mat Duo in shade 200, can't remember what I am in MAC, maybe NC20?) I recently tried Clinique - while changing nothing else in my routine - and after 2 days had two large blemishes. I tend to be sensitive/break out on my upper cheeks just below the orbital bone (redness, small blemishes, clogged pores). I'm very careful about washing my brushes and with my skincare routine, so going to chalk this up to either blush (or maybe my Nars undereye concealer?). Here's what I'm considering - what do you recommend? Any other brands? Lancome Blush Subtil (regular or shimmer) Shiseido Luminzing Satin Face Color Givenchy Le Prisme Blush ($30 is usually my limit, but willing to try this) Thanks in advance!
I want to get into contouring and I have light skin with pink undertones. I've heard good things about Anastasia's Contour Kit and Smashbox's as well but I'm at a loss here. What are your recommendations? Am I better off buying a highlighter and bronzer (I don't want orange!) or going for a kit. Do the kits work well for light skin? From reviews I've read I think kits tend to lean more towards medium complexions? Let me know what you recommend as far as products go. I prefer matte powders.Thanks!
Hey everyone, I need a good concealer to cover up my hyperpigmentation/dark spots and I heard this one was full coverage. I just wanted to see if people on here thought it would be a good concealer for my problem areas?
I used to use LORAC PERFECTLY LIT OIL-FREE LUMINIZING POWDER in Spotlight - it's sold out everywhere - and I've heard rumors it is being discontinued. I realize Sephora no longer carries the line and Kohls now does, but again, I can't find my fav luminizer anywhere. Ugh!!!! I need some Sephora help! Pretty please! I have a medium colored skin tone (yellow undertones) so gold tones tend to look more natural than pink ones - need recommendations on what other options to try to replace my old fav product. I have tried a bunch of things thus far and haven't had a lot of luck. I don't want anything too glittery.... help... And thanks in advance!
Hello All! So a little about me.. I am 25, am more Oily-skinned than not, very very fair and never tan. usually have at least one or two blemishes - I dont think i can ever remember a time when i had clear skin. I usually used Revlon colorstay on a day to day basis, and something like MUFE or MAC for special occasions. I am headed to the wonderful Disney World in humid, muggy, HOT Orlando soon, and need some makeup help. I want something that provides some coverage for my uneven skin + blemishes, but nothing too heavy. I would prefer something I didnt have to touch up as often etc. can anybody offer a suggestion? On a side-note... I would love to eventually phase out foundation all together. what would you recommend for doing that? I have horrible self esteem when it comes to my face and I feel like that is my main setback... I look forward to reading your suggestions!
Help! For years the only foundation that has worked for me is Bare Minerals matte and either my skin is getting used to it or my pregnancy hormones are in overdrive since it's starting to make my pores look larger now and starting to cake after a few years of use. I have red sensitive skin with acne scars and large pores. My skin tends to soak up my makeup throughout the day if it's NOT Bare Minerals and then I break out. I can usually use any powder on top. I always moisturize and use a primer beforehand. What is a good foundation and primer that I can use for my skin? I've tried Nars, Urban Decay Naked, and MAC foundations but I always come back to Bare Minerals Matte. Any suggestions on primer, too? Currently using: Bare Minerals Primer, Bare Minerals Matte Finish Foundation, Nars Powder Foudation for powder or Halo Hydrating Powder.
My skin is very oily and I am trying to find a foundation that works really well for my skin and I recently purchased BECCA foundation from Sephora but now I just want to find a drugstore makeup for now and I don't know what to get. Any recommendations?
Hi there, I need suggestions on liquid & powder foundations that have a matte finish, that are best for oily skin and don't cause breakouts. More about my skin: I have yellow undertones, dark circles underneath my eyes (not extremely dark), I also have a few blemishes on my skin, & throughout the day I mainly get oily on my tzone. So far I have tried Tarte (not a fan of the powder) and Kat Von Ds Lock it liquid foundations, which so far I like but I like to try new things. I don't use primer, I have tried the Benefit flawless, and the smashbox primer which I didn't like. I felt like it made my skin more oily. So if you have suggestions on primers or concealer for my dark circles that'd be great !!
