For those of you that use a brush with liquid foundation, how often do you wash/deep clean the brush? I just started using liquid foundation again, the last time I used liquid was back in the day & used my fingers. How often for a beauty blender?
Since my acne scars are fading and getting better, I want to start wearing a light coverage foundation for the spring/summer weather. I want something that has a light coverage that is suitable for oily skin. I'm completely oped to tinted moisturizers and BB/CC creams as well. So far, I've looked at: Becca Radian Skin Finish Benefit Big Easy Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Bobbi Brown BB Cream Clinique Even Better Clinique Perfectly Real Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup MUFE Mat Velvet (i know it has medium, but i can use less) Smashbox Studio Skin I've read reviews on these from Sephora and they all sound amazing!! Have any of you tried these? What do you think? Edit: I'm trying to stay under $50
I'd love to try the TARTE Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation but it isn't possible for me to swatch it first and I'm unsure if there is a colour match for me. I really struggle to find foundations that match my skin tone. My perfect colour match is Nars Sheer Glow in Siberia. I suspect that Fair Sand would be the closest match and I would be really grateful if anyone could please share some swatches of Fair Sand with other foundations. Foundations by Nars, Giorgio Armani or MAC would be fantastic. Thank you for any help.
Hey everyone! So I'm looking for a really natural way to apply Mac Face and Body foundation, but the thing is, every time I use it or any other foundation, it ends up looking really flakey and cakey, even if I put a tiny amount (happens to my concealer too when I use it on my forehead). I wash my face at night, with an exfoliator and then a cleanser. I then use the Boscia Tsubaki (is that right?) Beauty Oil. When I wake up, I use the oil again, but when I go to do my makeup (with primer), it always looks dry and crappy! I've had to use bareminerals, but it still makes my skin look dry...WHAT DO I DO!! HELP!
Hi there! My face is lighter and has a pink undertone (I also have some light acne scars and rosacea) compared to my neck, which is slightly darker with a yellow undertone. I've tried the following: 1) A yellow undertone foundation that completely matches my neck: when I apply this though, my face still looks pink compared to my neck -- doesn't look quite right. 2) A neutral foundation shade, which also makes my face look either too orange or pink compared to my neck. I'd love any advice on how to deal with this! My neck and face just look disjointed all the time. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
I know this is like.. not typical, but I think Infiinite Sungyeol's skin is one of the most natural yet dewy and moisturized I've seen in celebrities.. I went through everything but can't find what he's using. its not photoshopped because he actually looks like this on TV and fan pics too.. the color/shade is what I'm looking for also. something light yellow thats not too yellow and tacky.. can anyone suggest something that'll look like this? I have combination skin that looks dehydrated with wrong kind of foundation.. for example even UD naked looks rather cakey and dry on my skin especially as time goes on...
I haven't tried any highlighters because I tend to prefer the pale "bare" makeup look, but I'm starting to see the importance of it As I'm reading the reviews, I see some people saying how it accentuates their pores and dry patches.. is this true? I also have combination dry skin and find finishing powders to be too drying.. is there something that can act as a setting powder that doesn't dry out the skin and illuminates at the same time?
Hi! I would like a recomendation to choose a foundation for my wedding day! It will be taking place in the summer, so I need something to stick on my face but still look like myself. I have combination skin, and a little bit of redness. And im pretty sure it will be hot that day, so I dont want to be oily-shiny. Hope you can help me!! I was thinking about studio skin 15 hour wear foundation, but im not pretty sure! I linked a photo of myself so you can have an idea, I have make up on, and the other one with the pink t-shirt with no makeup at all HEEEELP!
I have very fair, oily, and acne prone skin. I have redness and an uneven skink tone so I need: full coverage that isn't cakey, last for at least 8 hours, doesn't settle in my pores or finelines and helps with oil control. What are the best products out there to help my face?
I have been on vacation for a week or so and have gotten a fairly good tan, so I'm a little confused on how I should get a shade match for prom (which is about three weeks after I get home) I'm looking for a medium coverage very natural finish foundation, any suggestions? I don't like a very matte finish, prefer to look a little dewy, but I have semi oily skin, so I also need nice staying power. I'm going to Sephora in a few days and hope to have a little more of an idea of what I should look at. Any suggestions will help! Thank you guys!!
I am loving the Sephora & Pantone Rush Luster Cheek Sweep, particulary the luminizers. However, I'm a little worried about the Orchid blush. I can rock an Orchid lip, but blush?? Does anyone have any tips or photos using this any type of orchid blush? http://www.sephora.com/rush-luster-cheek-sweep-P38 5386?icid2=sephora_pantone_carousel_P385386_image
i was interested in the kat von d lock it foundation, and concealer because i seen youtube videos and i love the flawless full coverage it gives. i have severe scars and acne to cover up. MY routine is to shower wash my face and moisturize, but for about 4 hours im super flaky and dry even with applying moisturizer, BUT therafter im a complete greaseball and i think i look so gross i hate it, i see flaky seperation with my foundation in my tzone. btw i use porefessional from benifet for my primer on my face.... please help,
I was just wondering what a good bb cream to go underneath my bareminerals foundation would be. I've been using liquid foundations for quite some time because they offer good coverage and they last way longer than mineral foundations, but bareminerals is the only foundation that doesn't make my skin look cakey. I was thinking maybe having some light coverage underneath might help it stay a bit longer/keep my skin healthy.
I have used Bare Minerals loose then ready foundation for years & have always liked it & still do, but, like many others, I feel like it's settling in my fine lines & think it's time I move on. I have tried countless samples of liquid foundation & cannot find a suitable shade. They are all too dark/yellow/orange etc. or maybe I'm just too used to seeing my perfectly matched BM & can't get used to anything else? What's a girl to do?
Hi everyone! I can't decide what powder foundation buy, I have the MUFE Pro finish powder foundation (I'm the shade 117 golden ivory) I have very oily skin and I feel the pro finish don't do much against that. Which one do you recommend?
I know a lot of you were curious about the new bareMinerals foundation, so I thought I'd let you know it's on the Sephora website! It isn't in stock but I can confirm that it is in the Color IQ system so if you want to see if you've got a likely shade match, you can do so
On a whim, I picked up Clinique's Moisture Surge CC Cream. It does a wonderful job of covering up my redness & my face feels so soft! I finally found something that works! I'm so please with it! And I got a GWP bag filled with things that I actually can use & like!
I am in a desperate search for this in shade #42. I'm getting ready to relocate to Singapore and even though there are Sephora stores there, I want this to take with me to cut down on the stress of finding the store and then locating this shade. Since I have seen inquiries about this particular shade so much on Sephora....why was it discontinued????
I've had my eyes on the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector highlighter for a while and I really want to go ahead and purchase one of the shades. I'm in between moonstone and opal. If any of you have these highlighters let me know your opinion on them. I have very fair skin, which of the 2 would work best for me?
