Best way to apply Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage 12-hour Foundation???
I recently bought the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage 12-hour Foundation, does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to apply it and what to apply it with? I've always struggled with putting on foundation without it looking splotchy and chalky. I have normal skin with minor breakouts and post-acne marks.   Thanks everyone!

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that recommended the Beauty Blender! I used Too Faced Hangover Primer underneath the foundation, and my skin looked great! :) see post
MUFE Step 1 Skin Equalizers
"'As painters always start with a smooth, perfectly prepped canvas to ensure a perfect end result, makeup artists need unified, flawless even-textured skin as a the starting point for perfect makeup results every time. ' -Dany’s words.   Discover the first step of your complexion routine for a perfect result: STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER . Like a makeup booster, the new primers prepare the skin for a perfect complexion just like a painter prepares his canvas with a basecoat. STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER is an equalizer that can balance out every skin to provide perfect texture and the best possible base to apply foundation.   The new generation primer improves the skin texture with a lighting or transparency effect, without changing the carnation; it acts like a brightness modulator. The 6 formulas answer to 6 issues: shining, dehydration, dryness, redness, dilated pores and fine line, lack of radiance.   STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER is an entire range which allows tailor-made primers for each woman."     Has anyone tried these yet?  Looks like there's something for everyone.  I recently switched from my old Smashbox primer to Too Faced Primed and Poreless, and I feel like it just emphasizes my pores.  (Strange, because it gets such great reviews, but I swear they weren't this big when I used my old stuff.) I'm interested in the Smoothing Primer.  I'm sure by the time my No Buy is over, there will be plenty of reviews, but I'm curious now!

Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
Hey all....does anyone have a product recommendation that is like Mineral Veil (gives healthy "glow", not sparkle and shine) that DOES NOT contain bismuth oxychloride? Loved the look of Veil, but I cannot tolerate bismuth. Thanks in advance.

thats good to know!! i keep forgetting to check that. I think it would be better as a highlighter if it does contain bismuth then, instead of an all over powder.  see post
Long-Lasting Foundation for Dry Skin?
I am looking for a foundation that is   Medium-Full Coverage Long-lasting Good for dry, dehydrated skin And preferably transfer-resistant Any recommendations? I have been using NARS Sheer Glow, which I LOVE the coverage and finish of; however, it doesn't last long enough on me and tends to transfer. I would love to know any tips as well that might fix these issues. My foundation routine is pretty minimal (moisturizer, foundation, concealer), so it may be that I need to add more steps, such as primer, powder, or setting spray. I'm considering the Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray. Please let me know if this has worked to make your make up last longer and doesn't feel tight on the skin. (I've used All-Nighter before and it was so tight feeling.)   Thanks!

Using Tarte Amazonian Clay blush as a highlighter?
I have not liked other highlighters I have tried and have even thrown a few away. However, I am completely in love and obsessed with the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes and have *almost* every single shade. Does any use these as a highlighter as well?

Best Nars blush shades for pale skin?
As some people might know (mainly Canadians lol), Murale (from Shoppers Drug Mart) is having their semi-annual "fab and free" gwp.  I only own a mini blush from Nars in the shade "Super Orgasm". I'm definitely on the pale/fair side of things and was looking to pick up a blush or two as part of my qualifying purchase. Any shade suggestions? If anyone has any other suggestions as to what I should look into picking up from Murale, please let me know! Thanks!

Foundation for people with pale complexions?
Hi, my name is Alyssa and I'd like recommendations and/or advice on what foundation to use for my skin as well as skin care. A little background about my skin, for starters I have a very pale complexion. Also, I have very oily skin which is very acne prone; at the same time it dries out if I wash my face and don't use face lotion afterwards. Walmart and Target sell makeup that are porcelain and ivory colors which usually have pink or yellow undertones which in turn make my skin orange or gives me that dreaded makeup line along my jaw. I have found foundation before, at Sephora, that was my skin color but it made me look dull and dead and I was just not a fan of it and eventually got rid of it after a handful of uses.

What did you think?
Hi guys! I just recently received my Kat Von D contour palette, and i must say, its AMAZING! I was going back and forth with the Anastasia palette and this one but Kat Von D won simply because i love her eyeliner and lipstick so i figured why not give it a try right? Plus it looked like the container had way more product (and it did, this is actually a very large palette). The colors were great if you use it with your Beauty blender, i found that using it with a brush can get really dusty and messy quickly. But the palette is way better than the Makeup Forever palette and the Ben Nye powder I had, just because Kat Von D colors show up way better. It looks like my makeup got done by a professional! What did you guys think of it?

Full coverage foundation for dry skin
I've always tended toward lighter coverage foundations, but lately I've been making my way through my sample stash and I realize I also really like the more flawless look that full coverage gives.  But the ones I've tried so far are incredibly matte and seem to dry my already dry and sensitive skin out further, even when I use a hydrating primer and more hydrating products on top.   Are there any fuller coverage concealers that have more of a dewy look and that don't feel as drying?

Thoughts on smashbox contour sticks?
I have been searching the internet to find out how the smashbox trio contour sticks work on darker skin tones and have found nothing. I have been obsessing over contouring and highlighting lately, and although I like using powders, I also like the ease of using cream products too. I have the Lancôme contour duo stick in Suede, but the highlight end broke. Since then I have really wanted to mess with it in fear the contour side will do the same. I just picked up the Laura Mercier cream contour kit but haven't opened it since 1. I really want the Anastasia one but it's OOS everywhere but ebay and 2. like the idea of sticks. Has anyone tried out the smashbox ones and have an opinion how it would work for me? I'm a caramel brown complexion.

Georgio Armani Maestro Foundation... ok for dry skin?
I have been using the Luminous silk foundation for a while now and I love it so much. I have really dry and sensitive skin and I have found it works well for me. I was looking at the maestro though and am wondering some opinions on it... is it ok for dryer skin types? I like the idea that it is a dropper/serum/lightweight formulas but I don't want to purchase if it isn't good for me. I also don't live near a sephora that carries Georgio Armani in store.    Thanks!

Best contour set for fair skin?
I've been on the market for a contour kit for a while now, its practically the only item i do not own. I was excited for the ABH contour kit to come out, since they have two shade options, but i've only heard mixed reviews. Maybe my mind is just intimidated by the apparent darkness of some of the darker shades in some of these kits, but has anyone else had any luck?

Is Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation changing?
I went to Sephora today to grab a replacement Silk Creme foundation, and there were two different looking tubes mixed on the display. There were a few colors only available in the original looking tube, and a few with a newer looking design. My color was only there in the new tube, so I decided to get it. The only difference I can see is that this is called Oil Free Photo Edition, and the color is a little warmer and more yellow than my standard Cream Ivory shade. On the box, this one says it is meant for normal to oily skin types...sounds different to me? Has anyone seen this too? Thoughts?

No luck finding a foundation that matches my pale skin tone! Please help!
Hey guys, I hope you can help me out with this! The scenario: I have extremely extremely pale skin. I have tried Sephora's Aerosol Foundation in Cream, Make Up for Ever Velvet Matte in Alabaster, Tarte's Amazonian Clay Foundation in Fair-Light Honey and Josie Maran's Powder Compact in 01- Fair/Light but everything has been too dark for me and it's getting quite frustrating to not have found a perfect match yet! I have even tested out some of suggestions listed under the ColourIQ, and low and behold, they are still too dark and/or orangey For all those with a similar issue, what foundation do you guys use and why?
