I feel like no matter what I do, any kind of liquid or cream makeup separates on my face throughout the day, leaving a splotchy finish, and almost like there are some spots where the foundation has rubbed off? It also ends up looking almost like the makeup is sitting 'on top' of my skin, if that makes any sense. Trying to buff it out only seems to make it worse. It is SO frustrating because I leave the house in the morning and love the way my makeup looks, but by noon it can be embarrassingly bad! I just turned 26, have very very fair, dry skin that is sensitive and prone to redness, but I take good care of it and generally think of myself as having 'good' skin. This problem happens if I exfoliate or don't exfoliate, if I prime or don't prime, if I moisturize or don't moisturize, if I set with powder, if I set with a spray, if I do both, etc. I have tried waiting 10 minutes to let my moisturizer sink in, then waiting another 10 to let my sunscreen sink in, I've tried the 'goss method' of lightly powdering after moisturizing/priming (this sometimes seems to help slightly). I've tried different moisturizers, primers, foundations, powders, and also different methods of application (BB, brushes, fingers,etc)... I'm at my wit's end. As far as I can tell I don't have any oil/water/silicone conflict issues, and lord knows I've tried so many different combinations of products and methods, I can't imagine that would be happening every time. I would SO SO SO appreciate any and all help or even just ideas-- I'm willing to try anything! I'm going to list my products used below (listing all the different things I've tried/in my arsenal-- I don't mean to say that I use them all at once). I'll be forever in your debt if you can help me solve this! Skincare routine: Wash at night with either Fresh Soy Cleanser or Mario Badescu Keroplast cream soap Image skincare 'vital c' serum, followed by Mario Badescu 'caviar night cream' and eye cream at night. In the morning I use the Mario Badescu 'caviar day cream', or have also tried Olay Regenerist or Olay luminous moisturizers. I've used lots of different sunscreens-- Neutrogena pure & free, Biore 50+ face milk, Cerave 50+ face, etc. Primers: I've used no primer, Smashbox photofinish, Tarte timeless smoothing primer, l'oreal magic lumi primer, and two different ulta brand primers (flawless face and another one) Foundations: I've used: Kat Von D Lock it Illamasqua Skin Base Missha BB CoverFX Liquid Foundation A bunch of drugstore ones I should note that foundations are the trickiest for me to switch up, as I'm super pale and have a hard time finding stuff that matches. Concealers: Don't know if this super matters or not, but I've used: Kat von d lock it creme Nars creamy radiant CoverFX blemish clearing concealer Tarte shapetape concealer Tarte creaseless concealer As far as setting powders, I've used both pressed (ELF translucent, MAC Fix+, NYX pressed powder) and loose (Makeup forever translucent, bare minerals orginial, bare minerals mineral veil, etc.). I've also used Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, NYX dewy finish setting spray, Smashbox Primer Water, & Mario Badescu Rose water spray. I hope all of this information is helpful, and I'll love you forever if you're able to even attempt solving this for me! Thank you so much!
Hi there - I have the Urban Decay Naked Flush in the color Naked. I love this product but unfortunately I already ran out of the highlighter but have plenty of the blush and bronzer. Is there one you recommend that will go? Please let me know. Thank you. BB
Hi. I have heard so much positive about the Kat Von D Lock it Foundation, and i really ant to buy it.But i have a problem. I don`t live anywhere near a store where i can buy it, and i don't know which colour that fits my skin tone I use Mac studio sculpt foundation spf 15 in shade NC20. Maybe by knowing this, you guys can find the right colour for me from Kat Von D? <3
Hello everyone! I saw the snapchat of Kylie Jenner where she mixed the MUFE ultra HD foundation with the Naked skin one and done and I wanted to know if anybody tried it yet? How is it? How it looks like? Do you recommand it? Also, I wanted to try but maybe with the Born this way foundation from Too Faced! What do you guys think?
Hello, I normally only wear concealer for my under eyes and no foundation, leaving me with a white cast in flash photography. I am currently using urban decays naked eye concealer. I have tried many other concealers and even tried bringing the concealer to my temples to help it blend into my skin better but the white cast still shows in flash. What should i do?
With the colder months around the corner, I was wondering which of these 2 foundations have worked for you: Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Cushion vs. Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hr. FYI, my skins gets really dry/flakey in the winter (with eczema patches) but becomes combo (oily T zone, normal on cheeks) in the summer. Thanks!
If i have light to medium skin tone and have pink and yellow undertones, love natural looking skin, have combination skin, don't want it cakey looking, and is known not to cause too bad or no breakouts, which foundation would be good for me?
I'm using SEPHORA COLLECTION 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation. While I'm loving the long-wearing, easily-blendable, "second skin" benefits of it, I'm not liking how long it takes to clean my foundation brushes after using this foundation. I use Sephora Collection Pro Foundation #47 brush to apply this foundation (personal preference). I clean these brushes (I have seven of them) with baby shampoo once a week (hence having seven of them). Cleaning this foundation from these brushes takes much too long! I spent a lot of money for these foundation brushes!! I'm scared that one day I won't be able to fully clean my brushes of this foundation and they'll be permanently stained! I started soaking the used foundation brushes in a baby shampoo/water combination for about 20 minutes (just the bristles) to loosen up the foundation a bit. It only slightly helps with cleaning. Any tips or tricks or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
I currently use Amazing Cosmetics concealer and I love it but now that it's summer and I have more stubborn cheek freckles I notice it doesn't totally cover them. What would be a good alternative? MUF full cover? (I have dry skin so prefer a cream)
Does anybody know what is a dupe for Dior Nude foundation? I use shade ivory 010 and love it.. but the you don't get your moneys worth with the bottle design and it isn't god for skin with the ingredients.. I am looking for a foundation with no oil, fragrance, or parabens. Thanks!!!!!!!!
I have extremely sensitive oily acne prone skin. I also have dark spots from acne and I'm looking for a foundation that covers and controls my oily skin and that wont make me break out more. Ive research and narrow it down to Kat Von D lock it Foundation and Becca Ever Matte shine foundation. Which one is better for my skin problem and concerns? Please and thank you<3 Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I've worn medium-full coverage foundation ever since I can remember, and I'm looking to switch to something a little more lightweight (for summer, at least.) My skin is fairly oily, very sensitive, and acne prone. I also have some hyperpigmention and red marks from past acne. I'm looking for a tinted moisturizer that is long wear and has decent coverage, while still feeling light. Any suggestions from those that use tinted moisturizers would be great!
I recently purchased the Becca Highlighter in Rose Gold and while browsing around, I swatched the Glow Kit in Sundipped and I love it! I have a deep/dark skin tone so the highlights look great. I'm thinking about returning the Becca highlighter for the Glow Kit due to more varitey. Is it worth it? Thanks!
