Tell me what foundations to use!!! I have very pale, red skin, acne, dry skin, and big pores. Throughout the day, no matter what foundation I use, I get dry flakes (usually on my chin) and then the rest of my face looks like an oil slick. I've tried so many things and I just want to find one foundation that gives me the coverage I need but still has a natural finish. Thanks!!
Hello my fellow Sephora ladies, I'm looking for a new foundation. I've always stuck with my trusty BareMinerals but I want something different. I typically use a BB cream underneath my powder since I don't like to use so much product at once. I'm looking for a very build able foundation, I don't mind if it's matte or a dewy-ish finish. My color is fair in BM and I am Snow Glow in the Too Faced Beauty Balm. Plus, I'm also thinking about breaking the ice and finally purchasing a Beauty Blender so whatever works well with that. Thank you!!
I'M SO UPSET I JUST RECEIVE THE KVD+BB L.E. SET, THE SET WAS A TOTAL SURPRISE GIFT AND I WAS SO EXCITED UNTIL I OPENED IT TO SEE THERE WAS NO FOUNDATION ...HOW CAN YOU ORDER THE SET WITHOUT THE FOUNDATION????
Hey all. So I have a issue I need help with. I recently bought the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. I love the coverage and lightweight feel of it, but here are my issues with it, when I got hot, and started to sweat a bit and get oily a bit, it all slid right off my face (I used primer and setting spray), and the color range sucks, they run way to dark. So my question is, does anyone know of any foundations that are amazing coverage, sweat proof, transfer proof (if possible), humidity proof, and water proof? Does not have to be from sephora, it can be any brand y'all think would work. I have neutral undertones (not overly pink, or yellow) and have combination/oily skin. Thank you.
Hello ladies Ok so my last post was about how my make-up makes me break out etc but I don't know what ingredients does this. SOOOO i've came here to ask what makeup brands YOU recommend for sensitive skin that wont effect your skin when using it? Looking for foundations, concealer, contour kit in cream and powder and any primers that are great for combination skin and any facial make-up that WONT effect delicate skin. All help and makeup item advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much <3
I have searched for a good, effective primer for a long, long time. Tried them all, MUFE, Tarte, Becca, etc. Actually easier to list what I have NOT tried! No matter what my foundations break-up/break-down all down my t-zone and actually slide right off of my face. I have combo/sensitive skin, with an oily t-zone (rest of my face is totally normal). PLEASE help me find a primer that will actually KEEP my makeup on my face!
I recently went in to pick up a new foundation to use in winter (I have a summer look I love with Dior Forever Flawless), but unfortunately I'm paler in winter and it doesn't have a match for my paler complexion. I picked up one that matched with my skintone in-store and that came recommended to me by Sephora staff (makeup forever ultra HD invisible cover stick foundation). I like everything about it except how shiny/oily it makes me look/feel after a few hours. To that end, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a foundation that worked well with combination skin (I have dry cheeks in winter, but a fairly typically oily T-zone). (My color IQ is 1R04.) Alternatively, I'm open to the idea of keeping the make up forever foundation if I can find something to mattify it: is there a pressed/setting powder that someone might recommend? (Flash photography is a concern of mine - I do need something that won't show up oddly with a flash.) Thank you so much for your help!
My skin is extremely dry and flaky. I live in Arizona so it doesn't seem to matter how much water I drink or how much moisturizer I use--it never gets better. I use Elizabeth Arden's 8-hour cream as an overnight mask and that does my face the most good, but it's still extremely dry. I also use coconut oil, evening primrose oil, and castor oil as moisturizers, which are somewhat helpful. My problem is in finding a foundation that won't dry me out further. I have rosacea and very pale skin so I need medium/full coverage, and I'm almost always the lightest shade that almost any brand offers for their foundations. I've tried liquid and powder foundations and while mineral powder generally works better, either option still leaves me with patchy foundation by the end of the day. My skin looks like the desert floor. Does anyone know of a foundation that would work with my skin issues? And, even though this isn't in the right category, extra points if someone can recommend a good, heavy-duty moisturizer (or several). Thanks!!
Hi there! I just had my trial with my MUA for my wedding. He used airbrushed my foundation and I'm not in love with the coverage. I think I'm used to a thicker texture for full coverage. Can I have him use a thin layer of my normal long-wearing foundation (pür liquid) underneath a layer of the airbrush? Will this give me a more full coverage look with an airbrush finish?
I recently tried Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer and loved the radiance, but found the coverage a little too light. Is there a liquid foundation (or BB/CC cream) that gives the radiance and lightweight feel of LM's tinted moisturizer, but with a little more coverage? (For reference, I use Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation in Light, and used LM's tinted moisturizer in Cameo)
Okay, so I've had a nice breakout along my chin, and I'm really struggling to hide it. I've never mastered concealing pimples, so I'd really appreciate some help. Any tips would be appreciated, and also some product recommendations. I'm 1Y01 for color purposes, and I use KVD's foundation in Light 42, so finding a concealer that's light enough has also been a bit of a struggle. I have a green concealer stick, and I've tried using it, but I apparently have no idea what I'm doing because it doesn't work. My breakout is pretty inflamed though, so any tips on how to counteract that is also appreciated. Thanks!
I have been having the worst of luck with my face you guys. I CANNOT figure out why my foundation AND concealer cake up on my RIGHT AWAY. I moisturize, exfoliate, prime, I use a damp beauty blender to apply both my foundation and blend out my concealer, and set with Kat Von D shade light palette. I have used a wide variety of foundations for both dry skin and for oily skin (I am dry to normal) and just cant figure it out. Some one please help!!
I'm currently using Josie Moran coconut gelee blush for daywear, but want to but Makeup Forever HD cream blush to wear to a wedding because of its staying power. Can anyone recommend the Makeup Forever color that is closest to Josie Maran's "Berry Bliss"? Have narrowed it to number 310 (Rosewood) and 510 (Raspberry).
Hi All! I was looking at getting some new brushes and was looking between Morphe and Sigma for a new foundation brush and I came across that liveglam is starting a Morphe Brush subscription box service that is just for brushes. What do you guys think about it? I don't know if it's really worth it as I don't know too much about Morphe (I was leaning toward Sigma) and if it's worth $20 a month. But I need a overhaul on my brushes as they are getting a little ...shabby and I "want" some new pretties (any rec. for brushes though for dry skin, using MUFE HD in 120, YSL touche eclat primer, Diorsnow fresh creme global transparency and Besame brightening (for reddness that seems to always peek through) Cheers
1. I was told recently that if you are using a matte foundation you should use a moisturizing primer. Is this true? 2. I have oily aging skin (I'm 37) and recently all my foundations sink into the fine lines & wrinkles on my forehead and cake around my nose. Any suggestions? 3. Concealer under my eyes has a cakey dry look lately which REALLY accentuates my fine lines & wrinkles there. Any suggestions? HELP!!!!! Lol!
I have combination sensitive skin and I've tried several foundations. I'm having a hard time finding one that won't oxidize on me. Right now I'm using NARS All Day Luminous. For the first couple of hours it looks fine, but then it becomes darker and more orange toned. Is there any foundation that won't oxidize on my skin?
I wear bareMinerals Original foundation in the "light" color, but am interested in switching to the bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation to help with my acne. Which color is closest to what I'm currently using? Many of the colors look very similar on the screen. Thank you for your help.
Hi! I was told by my dermatologist that mineral makeup is the way to go to avoid breakouts. I've heard bare minerals is good but I'm just wondering what other kind of mineral makeups are out there. I'm looking for a full regime too with powder, foundation, concealer etc. to finally get some good quality makeup! Let me know what you guys recommend, thanks!
I have really dry skin and whenever I apply makeup, I get cracking on my chin area and around my nose. I've tried a few primers and had no luck. I recently tried the Too Faced Hangover Primer and it actually made the cracking worse. If anyone has a recommendation for a good primer that would stop the cracking and make my makeup last longer, that would be amazing. I'm looking for more of a primer and not moisturizer, :-)
Hello everyone! I currently am using Bare Minerals Powder Foundation and I noticed that when I touch my face with a shirt or even hug someone my foundation will cling onto the fabric! I use Rimmel Stay Matte Powder which I heard was wonderful and I know it does work for me because when I forget to put on powder I can tell. My face is naturally oily and if I don't put on powder my face feels gross even before I walk out the door- that's how I know if I forgot to put powder on because if I don't I don't get that feeling. So my question is, is this a common thing even if I wear powder or my powder isn't working? Also wondering if anyone would suggest I switch to the matte formula of the bare minerals foundation or I should just upgrade to a high end powder first? thanks!
