I am being seduced by the cheek and bronzer brushes by Tom Ford, but each is so bleepin' expensive I'm not sure I could justify the price. Then again, I'm looking for the dreamiest, softest blush brush and all-over face powder brush. Are these what I'm looking for? If not, which one(s) do you prefer?
...and the perfect blush application method! I'm sorry for starting so many threads recently...well, I'm sorry I'm not sorry There are just so many opinions that I'd like to know about! Anyway, I currently use Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow n Très Belle, and I apply it with a beautyblender. It seems that here on BT, many favor four brands, in no particular order: Nars, Tarte, Benefit, Dior. Here's the application/look I'm going for: What's your take/recommendation? Thank you! <3
I love having something to look forward to while studying, and I'd love to see some of you beautiful people share with me (and of course, the rest of this lovely community) one of your favorite looks you've created--on yourself or, perhaps, a loved one. I love seeing others' creativity in action. It is so inspiring! Here's one of mine, to be fair: Though I've done better makeup-wise, I loved my outfit and hair here...I wish I could dress like this every day
I went to sephora and matched my skin tone to the perfect foundation from MAKEUP FOREVER 170 ... what is the skin code for medium glow skin tone? is 3y01? I would like to know any other matches for my skin tone
Whats the best way to apply cream highlighter/blush over liquid foundation w/o affecting the makeup beneath it? I just purchased the Illamasqua gleam cream in aurora and I love it! My only issue with it so far is the correct way to apply it without streaking/rubbing off my liquid foundation beneath it?
Hi everyone, I have a darker mouth area compared to the rest of my face. It's not super dark, but it is noticeable. For reference, I am NC 20-25 and my mouth area is about NC 35. If you guys have any idea on how to conceal this and what products would be helpful, please let me know. Thanks!
Not being a pro at makeup or anything, I've been using the same drugstore brushes for a while, and only applicators for eyeshadows. I want to upgrade to a good but not extremely expensive beginners brush set, and I was wondering if anyone had recommendations? I had my eye on the Too Faced Teddy Bear brush set for a while, but some of the reviewers said it didn't pick up product well. I'm now considering the Sephora Holiday Light Show brushe set, but if anyone has any suggestions (or agree that it would be a good choice!), please share! Thank you so much lovelies <3
I am looking for a new foundation to try out, I've always used drugstore brands, besides a time I used Clinique but didn't feel it was much better than what I could find for a fourth the price. I am looking for that airbrushed flawless look, with glow! (everyones dream, right?) I have fine lines in my forehead that I haven't been able to find a good foundation to cover, as well as the occasional blemish. My skin is normal-dry. With so many products its hard to decide which to put my money into and I want it to truly be great with covering fine lines, glow, and long lasting!
I've been using the Lingerie de peau, and I find that there's not many foundations out there that matches up.. but unfortunately, my color is sold out, and I wanted to buy a few foundations this holiday season.. Has anyone tried the parure de lumiere? I know its supposed to be for dry skin, but I've read that some people think its too "matte" or "dry"for their skin. I have combination skin, and is looking for a few foundations to use in the summer when I tend to be a bit oilier but not a full blown oily skin
I want to buy a GRAFTOBIAN HIGH-DEFINITION CREME FOUNDATION but i dont have any idea what color is right for me and I'm not sure its a product they sell in stores. I know that in my area they dont sell. I am 200 nude in revlon colorstay liquid foundation (combo/oily skin), can anyone tell me what my color is in the graftobian please?
What's your Holy Grail for foundation brushes?? 😄 if you have a different favorite for powder, liquid, cream, bbs, airbrush, ect. list them all! And please tell us why you love them. 😌 Shoot let's go even further what is your HG brush for all areas of make up? What do you use it for? And again why is it so great?
I have my MAC lipstick on today. It's their Longwear Lipglass. The color is Driven by Love. On my eyes, I have my favorite palette, Urban Decay 2. Lashes are Benefit, Yes They're Real mascara. And gotta love my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Truffle and my blush is Nars Desert Rose.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage powder foundation : When the amount of foundation left in the container gets low, do you have any suggestions on how to get it out? I don't want to push my brush down too hard and ruin the bristles, and I also don't really want to dump it out to be able to dip into it. It's not like I can swirl it in the cap because of that little stopper.....and I am over the whole "swirl, tap, buff" thing anyhow....I just wish there were a better way. Has anyone gotten theirs that low yet? Suggestions?
Okay ladies(gents), I really want to try a new foundation. I have been using the UD naked foundation in 3.5 and I'm not to big of a fan of it. I only bought it because a sephora employee suggested it to me. It's thick to me even when I hardly apply any it still looks not cakey but wierd on me like it doesn't want to apply in a nice thin layer. Okay here goes all my skin info: honestly I'm not sure if I have normal or oily skin. I just know it's not dry and it's not combination, because when it does get oily it's the same all over not just in a few places. I should probably know my skin type but I don't. :/ type of foundation I want: I don't think I like matte too much I like more of a natural yet gorgeous look. Something that makes my skin look flawless without it looking like I actually have something on my face. Like when you 1st step out of the shower and your skin looks all perfect and slightly dewy because it just got all that moisture. I don't care what the coverage is I can add concealer to cover a little more or add a primer to make the consistency a little less if needed too. If it is sheer I would prefer it to be able to be nicely buildable. I also don't care if it's liquid, cream, powder, ect. It can be anything as long as it looks flawless! Hmm I can't think of anything else besides a may be a tad acne prone. Thank you!
Hey everyone I'm just am curious about the newly formulated KohGendo aqua foundation I've read that it has been reformulated recently.. and can't find any counters to try a sample.. I've used Makeup forever HD, Mat Velvet Guerlain Lingerie de peau Giorgio Armani luminous silk Hourglass immaculate Chanel Vitalumiere aqua YSL touche eclat before., "smoothing" of texture is really important.. I hate foundations that accentuate the pores and/or become patchy I have combination skin, some hyperpigmentations to cover, and some pores around the nose and forehead
I am trying to select a good brush for contouring with Sephora's Los Cabos. The brushes I am trying to choose from are: MAKE UP FOR EVER 150 Precision Blush Brush MAKE UP FOR EVER 152 Medium Highlighter Brush SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Contour Brush #74 MAC 109 Small Contour Brush Sigma F05 Small Contour Brush Which will give me the best contouring effect (but still natural but buildable) while being the best quality? Thanks!
I have acne prone skin, but I really only break out when I wear makeup. If I don't wear it my skin clears up in a week or two, but I want to wear makeup to cover up acne marks I got a while ago. What is the best makeup to use?
I can't decide between the three offered right here on Sephora: Parure de Lumière Tenue de Perfection Lingerie de Peau Thoughts/opinions/reviews would be much appreciated, especially any comparisons. Thank you!!
I want a new highlighter, but I dont want something that looks like a unicorn sneezed glitter in my face! I'm looking for something that gives me a luminous warm glow and doesn't look greasy from too much sheen (oily skin here) I think I've picked two contenders : Too Faced Candlelight Duo Highlighting Powder OR Dior Shimmer Star Has anyone used one or both??
Hey everyone, I am just on a hunt for yet another foundation.. I'm currently using the Makeup forever HD an the Guerlain lingerie de peau. I'm just really curious about the Givenchy photo perfexion fluid foundation because it does have great reviews, but I can't find them in stores anymore because the Teint couture has replaced them. I like light weight foundations that has a fair amount of coverage, and those that have a nice glow/brightening effect to them. (I have combination skin that tends to get a bit oily during the summer months) What are your experiences of using Givenchy's photo foundation?
I need some help - I`m looking at purchasing the Guerlain foundation but I`m not sure if I should get shade 24 or shade 25. I`m a tad bit darker than NC45 but NC50 is too dark. Here are the colours I wear in other brands: MUFE HD - 173 DiorSkin - 050 Smashbox Studio Skin 4.1 If anyone can help, I would appreciate it!
I was at the movies recently and it made me feel slightly bad about my makeup. How on earth do the makeup artists get foundation to look so perfectly skin-like? I think my makeup is usually pretty natural but most girls would be able to tell I'm wearing foundation. I want to find a foundation that has decent coverage but doesn't look like foundation.... maybe I'm asking too much. Makeup isn't magic. Can any of you recommend foundation like this for me?
When I apply my foundation it looks fine but then maybe 2-3 hours alter it looks cakey and appears to be a layer on top of my skin. I really am looking for a dewy more natural look for daytime, I have used Silia tinted moisturizer in the past which did not get flaky however was looking for a little more coverage so i switched to a foundation. Should I go back to Stila, try something else OR modify my application?? (I don't use my foundation brush because i cant blend with it i usually use my fingertips) I use Make up Forever HD foundation and Nars or MUF primer, to set I use MUF forever HD powder. I exfoliate once a week and moisturize all the time since i have dry/combo skin i also use Argan oil at night.
