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
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!
Hey all, I keep reading on here about people have problems with foundation "balling up" in various situations but I can't find a picture of what that looks like. I'm curious because I think it might be happening to me; after a few hours of wearing foundation + primer it looks like the color is clinging onto the base of the hairs on my face and/or clogging my pores, as well as flaking off a bit. I just checked the ingredients list and both my foundation and primer have dimethicone pretty high up on the ingredients list (foundation has it as the second ingredient) so I'm wondering if that's part of the problem. for reference i've been wearing this primer and foundation which were suggested to me by a SA: http://www.sephora.com/10-hr-wear-perfection-found ation-P379509?skuId=1492859 http://www.sephora.com/perfecting-ultra-smoothing- primer-P284104
I bought this brush maybe a few months back and when I went into sephora I noticed that their was fuller and more fluffy where mine is still about the original size. Do I need to fluff it out? Would that make it work better? I've noticed that most other companies brushes for "airbrush" are fluffy and full. How do I fluff it out?
well lets just start on the blushes i want benefit coralista, nars deep throat, tarte amazonian caly blush, laura mercier blush, illamasqua blush, urban decay flushed palette, and so much more what blush can you not live without!
I wear NC45 sometimes a little darker I really love the idea of these pearls but with my darker complexion will it even show? Am i just wasting my time and money? thank you! Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I have been very curious about the Shu Uemura's mousse base for a while but haven't been brave enough to give it a try. Has anyone tried them or using them? Can they serve as a replacement for a primer? I'm quite acne prone.. would it break me out?
Received a sample of bare minerals in light. (Matte) It matches my face nicely. The rest of me is more of the color golden medium. My question is, can I get the golden medium on my lighter skin? I know I can go a shade darker in my liquid foundation, but not sure mineral markup can do the same. Also do you recommend staying with their primer or a different one. I have large pores and oily skin and usually wear primed and pore less, but the prime time sample I received seemed good too.
Does anyone of darker skintones use illamasqua skin base foundation? There is a big jump between number 15 and 16 and when i look online i havent been able to find someone with skintone near my own who swatched the item. I went to their site and looked at conversion chart and it said mac nc50 = 15 on illamasquas item but its an expensive item to purchase then not fit on the other hand my concealor is mac nw50 which on the comparison chart says is a blend of 16&17 with many other brands other than mac and a select few it was suggested i blend two shades to properly match my own but thats just not something im willing to do. any insight would be appreciated
I have all but one of the Hourglass powders, palette included. I kind of want Luminous light, which is possibly too dark on my skin, but I'm not sure. I'm .5 in UD Naked and Gobi in Nars Sheer Glow for reference. Do I really NEED the this one, or am I just being silly?
I've been using the Dr. Jart Black Label for almost a year and love the texture and finish and effects on my skin but not so much the slightly too dark for me colour. I was thinking of trying the V7 BB cream since it's made for fair skin tones but the reviews are all over the map. Anyone tried both and prefer one over the other?
I am allergic to Bismuth Oxychloride. aka (Bare Mineral Products) but their faux tan is the only bronzer that doesn't get muddy on me and is most natural looking. I have freckles and a red undertone (not pink, not yellow) so I will take any recommendations! Thanks!
Has anyone worn this? I know the description says it is transparent, but they look slightly tinted in light, medium, etc I was going to swatch in store by my location doesn't carry them! I'm trying to decide on whether to buy the light or medium...I'm NC25 in MAC, 020 in Dior Forever Flawless Help pretty please
I am looking to buy the Amazing Concealer but it's not available in stores in Vancouver! I am at a lost regarding what colour I should get...I am Chinese but my skin is really pale...but it's not the kind of Caucasian pale where there's a milky undertone (not sure if I am describing this correctly)... I want to use the concealer mostly for just covering my dark circles, which is really purple...so what colour should I get? It would be great if Sephora had a small sample palette of all the colours we can buy or try...sigh...
I am looking for a foundation (preferably clinique brand, but am open to other brands) that goes on like the clinique acne solutions but without the salicylic acid? I wear the lightest shade (fresh alabaster). I like the consistency- it goes on smooth and provides the right coverage for me- and shade. Any recommendations?
Hi! Can anyone advise...between the Nars Blusher/Shader duo (orgasm and laguna) and Naked Flushed, which palatte is better in terms of versatility and the long lastingness of the colours? I'm slightly unsure about the slight golden sheen in the orgasm too...would deep throat be a better colour? I wear a MUFU HD120 if that helps in any way? Thanks so much!
I am a bit confused. Is it possible for the color of your dark circles to change at different times? Two different Bobbi brown consultants matched me with different shades. one matched dark bisque and another at a different store recommended dark peach Or peach?? i need or order online and I don't know which one to get? help! purchased amazing cosmetics concealer in shade tan a year ago and it seems to pink/orangey for me now? which shade do you recommend? Please help confused!
- Shade 010 specifically. I really love the nudeskin bb and am curious about this one. Anyone have comparison shades to other fdns/ bbs.. I had a sample of the dior hydra life and i found both shades 1 & 2 ran too dark and went a little orange
I've been going back and forth between products to use on my skin without not getting enough coverage to being a complete cake face with dry patches. I have NO idea where to even begin. I like a matte finish light weight full coverage that lasts, contouring here and there. Products I've been pondering on... Mac Pro Palette/ Palette concealers Makeup Forever BB Creams NARS radiant cream foundation Lancome 24hr Ultra Etc...
Hello.. I am in search of a good foundation and concealer. I have fair/pale skin with pink undertones and a few broken capillaries. I've been using Dr. Jart BB Black Label Detox Beauty balm. http://www.sephora.com/black-label-detox-bb-beauty -balm-P374568 Dr. Jart BB Black Label Detox Beauty balm is amazing, however it's a shade too dark for my pale skin. Did recently try Kat Von D Lock it foundation. The shade was right. However, found the product to be really drying for my already dry skin. Did try the product with a moisturizer and Hourglass primer and still found it to be too drying. Been thinking maybe getting some concealer in white and adding it to the Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Beauty balm. Tried numerous foundations, trying to find one that has great coverage, non drying, and is fair enough for pale/fair skin with pink underones has been a struggle. Also ISO of a great concealer that won't seep into the lines of my skin or the bags under my eyes. Amazing cosmetics concealer is nice, but after a couple of hours it looks caked under my eyes. Thank you!
Hey everyone, So I was wanting to try more drugstore BB creams right now because I can't necessarily put the money down on more higher end BB creams at the moment. I bought this based on what I read in reviews on makeupalley and on their website testimonials. I do like this product, it goes on flawlessly however I have 2 issues with this product. 1.) I find these gritty/grainy bits when I put the product on my face 2.) I find my face looks EXTREMELY greasy looking and it fades quickly on my face even with setting powder over top. I was wondering what causes these issues with BB creams ?. Thanks for your advice !
