What is my Estee Lauder Double Wear match?
Ok, so I've already tried two matches that obviously were way too orange and dark for my skin. I have used 2W2 and 2W1 but since my neck is way lighter than my super combination facial skin, you can always tell there's a huge difference. I'm almost a perfect MUFE #30 in their Matt Velvet...... which is a perfect shade but I don't think it compares to the EL. If someone could please help me out I would totally appreciate it! (I have yellow undertones!)

Foundations love/hate relationships and issues with colormathing.
So while browsing  here in BT I have noticed a lot of us having issues and horror stories about finding the correct foundation match, have love hate relationships with certain brands/colors. I remember going through so many sample/purchases of hoping this will be something I like or will be my HG foundation, but would wind up in disappointment . The frustrations of trying to find not only the right shade, but also the tone/coverage and ingredients that make us feel comfortable and look good on the skin.   Ohh how many counters I visited and tried so many brands in order to find the one. I mean it is sometimes so exhausting - because sometimes MUA's not listening your preferences (ex: I am on a warmer side and with slightly yellowish undertone and I am given a sample of cool/pink /neutral foundation) or also the lighting the stores sometimes is no help.   Other times when we ask for samples so we can try it at home and in natural lighting to see if it is the perfect color match and coverage MUA's/SA's give us a tiny sample - which barely covers our whole face/enough for one try and other times they are very generous about it or the look we get "oh she is just wants a sample and not buying anything!!!"   On top of that we always have to worry about the seasons changing and us trying to find a shade lighter or darker.   So let's share the stories and your ways of finding the right shade/tone of the foundation.

I almost found my HG foundation, and there's Bismuth Oxychloride.
Oh god.  Today, I tried out Benefit Hello Flawless foundation sample I've got weeks ago. Recently, I was actively searching for a foundation that suits me better than Nars Sheer glow and was considering between Chanel and TF. When I applied this HF foundation, I thought I found my HG foundation. It was really the best foundation I've ever worn...so smooth, right coverage, my skin looked flawless! and...   After washing my face, I found some red bumpy breakouts (whitehead-ish, something you can easily pop up, not a big inflammatory one) on my face...and when was the last time this happened to me? It was when I used Bare Minerals mineral powder foundation. Wait, is this Bismuth Oxychloride? I did my research, and yes, there you are!    I'm just so sad. I immediately ordered this foundation from Sephora since I just knew! it's the perfect foundation..but didn't know that it's that plus Bismuth Oxychloride. I was just a step away, and now I know I have to return it. SO SAD!

What shade to try in Laura Mercier foundation since I'm fair and pink undertoned...
Hi! I was wanting to try a  Mercier tinted moisturizer but since I am a fair redhead and I know I'm tough to match I'm not sure which shade to order. I use Make Up Forever HD in 110 in winter and 115 in summer if that helps. Have any ideas?

Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder vs. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
First off, I got a sample of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal (the liquid one) and absolutely fell in love with it. But I think for the summer, when my skin becomes a bit more oily, I would prefer a pressed powder.   So now I'm deciding between the Becca and the Kevyn Aucoin. They both have such great reviews. I don't want over the top glitter, just the nice glow I got from the liquid. No sparkles please! Looking just to highlight the tops of my cheeks and maybe lightly brush across my forehead or chin - just a subtle glow.   Does anyone own one or both or these items? I'm hoping to purchase during Chic week. I figure I'd get the Becca powder in Opal since I loved the liquid form in Opal. They both sound so lovely I just can't make up my mind, so I thought I'd ask if any of you have a favorite (well, of course you do...) Thanks in advance!

Prom Makeup?
I'm 16. My dress is (most-likely going to be) mint and long, my hair will probably be up/curled.   My skin is very, very pale but a couple days before I'll be using Tarte's Brazilliance self-tanner, so I'll still be fair but slightly bronzed. I have dark brown hair, freckles, and green eyes.   I want some kind of contour, not really sure how extreme. Not sure what eyeshadow colors to use--I have Naked 2 and 3 but I still have a while to purchase others if necessary. Also not sure what my lip color should be (in coordination to my eyeshadow). Another concern is if I should go for natural looking falsies+eyeliner or skip both.   Thank you!

Prom dress color? +makeup!
I am extremely pale with cool undertones/pinkish undertones and I have brown freckles. My hair is very dark brown and my eyes are a dark green. I'm completely lost on what color prom dress to get. Half of the people tell me a light color will wash me out and half tell me a dark color will wash me out!   I will be self-tanning a few days before prom (not orange! Don't worry, I'm using a green-based tanner. Did my research) so I'll still be fair but slightly tanner if that affects anything.   So what's a makeup look that doesn't really depend on the dress color but good for SLIGHTLY tanned fair skin, dark hair, green eyes?

Charlotte Tilbury foundation
Just thought I'd post this for anyone who may be curious to try her foundation.. I've wanted to try it since it came out, but I have absolutely no idea what shade I'm in. She's now offering free samples to order from her site! Each set (light, medium, dark) comes with 4 shades each, so I'm sure there will be no trouble finding a shade, I just hope the formula is nice

is my foundation shade correct?
   A few days ago i decided to buy georgio armani luminous silk and i got shade matched to 4.5 and i liked it but than i was looking at myself in the car and my face looked slightly pinker and different from neck and body and i just got paranoid and was taking photos over and over again outside but i kept seeing my face a different shade than my neck    so i decided to get rematched and i got matched to 5 and i was with my friend and we go outside and she says it looks fine and im looking at it and it looks good so im like okay its 5 but im doing my makeup at home and my foundation looks lighter than my neck i start comparing it to my other foundations which is fiji in sheer glow and on the website they are under the same iq number and they are both light on me but ive used fiji out in daylight and it looks good i match my neck and everything.    today while testing i did my makeup at night and used flash to take the photos and non flash and in the flash photos i look much lighter and i sorta look lighter when looking in the mirror but not so much.   should i be getting a darker shade for nars sheer glow i know i cant be punjab because ive seen punjab on others and its a tan shade but idk if maybe i should try 5.25 in GA(i dont want to try peachy or cool foundation shades)

COVER FX Custom Cover DropsI've + Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup
Shade(s) suggestion to darken  Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup DESERT BEIGE 2N1 bt 1/2 to 3/4 with COVER FX Custom Cover Drops please.   The ELDW shade ranges in the next level 3's don't work, not even mixing with Desert Beige 2N1. The 3's are very different from the 2's---way too peach/orange or strong yellow. Even when I mixed Desert Beige with different 3's, it altered the shade/undertone giving it a tan-bronze appearance.    I don't want a *TAN Orange-Bronze* level of darkening.   Thanks
