I like the Makeup Forever HD foundation. It's light and gives me pretty good coverage without looking cakey and the shade matches me almost perfectly. see post
When to start wearing foundation?
I've always wanted to try wearing foundation, but I don't want to put my money towards something I found out I don't need. What exactly is foundation used for? When should I start wearing it? My skin is clear most of the time, except for the occasional spot on my forehead every once in a while. Usually I would cover that pimple up with concealer, and would just see no use in wearing foundation. Please help!

Moisturizer with SPF help?
Hi! I'm running out of my Dior Hydra with SPF and am looking for something new to try. Lately it's been making my face feel really oily. I tried the Boscia and I hate it. It's so runny. Any other recommendations? I'm 39 and don't wear a ton of makeup but always wear moisturizer.

Best foundation for combo/dry skin?
Hi there!   I am here to discuss, based on users' experiences, what is the best foundation for combo/dry skin. I am a 16-year-old teenager that is getting tired of drugstore foundations. It makes me look cakey, it rubs off easily and never stays on. More importantly, they don't help my skin. Due to hormonal changes, I am unfortunately leaning towards the dry territory. My eyebrows are the worst. I have brown hair, but instead of having brown eyebrows they're white from the constant flakiness around my eyebrows, in my eyebrows and eyelids. This all started once hot weather appeared. Before that, I was just pure dry during the winter. My face would burn or would have a burning sensation from dry skin. It was so bad that you could see the flakiness from miles away (exaggerating, of course). My friends kept telling about it. Way before that, I was nothing but oily. Right now, my face is a bit oily, but it's more on the dry side. As I'm writing this post, my face feels like cement but it has some oiliness going on. Any foundations out there to help my situation? I don't have a budget.

I have pretty oily skin and i've been running into the problem of my pressed powders like my blush and bronzer getting a layer of matted product (i'm assuming from the oil transferring from my brushes) Im pretty good about cleaning my brushes regularly but i haven't found a solution to get rid of this weird film and i really don't want to waste product. Any suggestions appreciated!

Making suggestions to the Color IQ?
I was curious to know if there was any way to make suggestions as far as what foundations work and don't work in regards to the skin tone numbers for the Color IQ.   I took the time out to swatch each of the liquid foundations my store carried for my color (1R13) and well...yeah. These ranges go from super light yellow, to deep, everything in the middle, some have a little more red, it's just a mess. Not to mention, out of all these shades I can only wear two without looking as if my foundation is too red or to yellow (Stila Stay All Day and MUFE Face and Body).

Laura mercier please bring back original silk creme foundation! Looking for similar type of coverage
I use Laura mercier silk creme foundation and just had to buy a new bottle but i do NOT like her new updated oil free silk creme, I even tried the moisturizing too . Its not the Same coverage as the original. I feel the original was a little thicker and had better coverage. Is there another foundation brand that has similar coverage as the original silk creme foundation? I also have acne scars and I like something med to full. Nothing too full coverage as kate Von d , and that is why I use to love Laura mercier silk creme. So sad it changed. . Any suggestions would be great!!!

MUFE HD Dupe?
It's time for me to admit that MUFE HD just isn't for my oily skin. No matter what kind of primer or setting spray or powder I use, my face is ALWAYS a grease ball at the end of the day. I even quit it for a while and then went back to Sephora a few days ago to get a sample just to try it with a new primer and powder but nope ... Therefore, I have very little faith in the new version. However, I love the finish and, unfortunately, the color (153) has matched me better than any foundation I've ever tried. So just wondering if anyone knows of any dupes. I've tried so many foundations and nothing comes close to the finish and shade of this product.

Illuminators
I have recently started to explore face Illuminators and highlighters.   So I have selfishly started this thread to hear more from all of you.  Your favourites, how you use them, thoughts, opinions, recommendationss etc.   To clarify - when I say highighters, I don't mean the "contour/highlight' kinda highlghter..  I mean the shimmery (or not) stuff you put on your cheek bones etc.   I have medium/deep skintone.  So here is my experience in testing some:   Burberry Golden Radiance liquid Illuminator Rate: A Use:  I mis it with foundation to thin it out an dapply it.  It is subtle and pretty.   Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete Tan Enhancer Rate: A Use: Although it says Bronzer, I use it as an overall illuminator/finishing powder.  Use a light hand   Guerlain Holiday Meteroites Rate: A- Use: I use a light hand at the end   Hourglass Radiant Light Rate: B or B+ Use:  It is okay.  Can look pwdery too quickly if I'm not careful.   Revlon Illuminator in Bare Rate: B- Use: I mix it with foundtaion.  It is okay in a pinch.    Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Rate: B A Use: I mixed with foundation.  I now like it. I am not a big CT brand person, but I like this product and plan to purchase.    Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #11 Rate: B Use: Mix with foundation.  It looks pretty, but is a pain removing.  It seems to sink into my skin and needs extra cleansing, and I don't like that.

Prime Time?
I have very oily skin I believe right now I use Estee Lauder 24 hour foundation. I feel like I'm using too much on my face. I also have cytic acne, which is a swollen pimple under the skin very painful and even harder to conceal since it is just a bump that hurts. What should I do? I need full coverage due to the fact that I have acne. I also have liked cover fx, and naked. What primers should I try? I also work two jobs so I am very on the go and I need a foundation that can hold up with me. So anything would be appreciated!

Help!  I need suggestions for a strong foundation or concealer...I have vitiligo and currently use cover FX foundation and setting powder. These worked great for winter, but now that summer is here, when I am out and the sun is beaming down and the sweat beads form, it actually looks like I am literally melting.  It's sooo embarassing.  Anyone know of a product that will stay put no matter how hot it gets.  I really want to enjoy my summer days without worrying that my makeup is going to drip off.
