Need a new foundation
Hello! I've been using Bare Minerals Ready Foundation for maybe 2 years now and it has worked great. Not sure what's changed with my skin, old age? But for some reason it just doesn't look great anymore. I'm 36, have oily skin in the T-zone and have big pores. I've never really liked liquid foundation, but I'm willing to try other things. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Question about Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H
I love Lancome's Teint Idole but the shade that I was matched with a year ago isn't quite right. The shade is 140 Iviore. There is one lighter shade, but there is no description of what the difference is. Does anyone know? It seems like this one has a yellow undertone and I am more neutral.

Anyone have advice on mixing foundation shades?
I didn't start using foundation until the beginning of this year, so I don't know much about foundation outside of the basics. I am in love with Urban Decay's Naked liquid foundation, but my problem is that the shade I got matched to works great for my face, but then when you look at me as a whole, my face is lighter then the rest of my body! I returned the color I previously bought and the woman who was helping me out said if we went any darker in the UD line, that it would be too dark. So instead, we found a match in MAKE UP FOREVER that works, but I really prefer the UD foundation. How would one go about trying to mix shades to get their perfect shade? Is it just better to stick with the already made shades? Just need any advice on this!

I'm going crazy, how can I stop my foundation from being so cakey all the time!?
I've tried different primers and no primers, different foundations, different white foundation MIXERS to lighten all my different foundations. I've increased my moisturizing, tried different methods of exfoliating my face, using sponges, Beauty Blenders, foundation brushes, stippling brushes, and even gotten rid of all the peach fuzz on my face. Nothing  helps. I always end up with these patchy clumpy pieces of foundation all over my face, even in areas that aren't usually dry on me. My nose looks like a mottled flaky mess and in short my foundation just looks disgusting. I'm not slopping it on my face either like the "friendly" girls on another forum kindly suggested I was. I put maybe a pea sized amount on each cheek, my chin, and my forehead and this still happens.   NARS Sheer Glow caked, Illmasqua Skin Base caked like mad, Laura Mercier's Silk Creme is caked on my face as we speak, Kat Von D caked (of course), Loreal's Lumi cakes. The only base makeup I have ever been able to use without it doing this is Missha's Signature Perfect BB cream in #13, but I cannot build up the coverage at all without it getting cakey in spots.   I don't understand what's wrong with my face or what I'm doing so wrong. Sephora associates don't know what's what to suggest (I just get more moisturizers tossed at me). My face feels and looks flawless and soft   without makeup, but the second foundation comes into contact with it everything goes to the dogs and I just don't get it.   If anyone has a suggesting as to what is happening and how I can prevent it I'd love to hear some input.

Mixing two primers together?
HIHI! As some of you know, I jumped on the Estee Lauder Band Wangon and tried the double wear. But I am having issues with my primer. I like using a green primer (MUFE) to counteract my redness and CoverFX mattifying primer to keep me matte. Does mixing two primers work less effectively? AND would it be too heavy?

Primer for Oily/Acne Prone skin
I would love face primer recommendations! I have tried Makeup Forever's primer, which did nothing, Smashbox original (which broke me out like crazy!) and the Laura Mercier, which is ok, but did little to nothing for the long wear help of my face makeup.      I don't know a lot about ingredients in primers, but I am pretty sure that the silicones in the Smashbox was the ingredient that broke me out.    I use a smashbox pressed powder and Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation!

Similar foundation to Kat Von D in terms of formula
 it works, but with summer ending and my summer "tan" (if you can call it that) fading, I don't know what to do. I know I won't be able to find a match in her foundation line with my lighter complexion but the formula is perfect for my skin. It sits matte and lets my natural oil give me a slightly dewy- NATURAL LOOKING skin glow. I love the coverage and how it smooths out all my weirdly shaped pores, and it works with my Smashbox primer. My only gripe which I was able to look past is sometimes it smells like doritos and you have to work fast with it.  Current color IQ is #3Y03 In other words, I'm looking for a full (I mean I don't want to see my actual face full) coverage foundation that works best with combo-oily skin that is similar in texture and formula to Kat Von D's. (Preferably with packaging that allows you to get all of the product...)

Face Powder
I am looking for a fuller coverage  face powder to wear over a liquid foundation. I have tons of freckles, I am a nurse so work long hours so it also needs to be long wearing. I love the coverage of liquid and powder together. The problem is that recently my go to powder was discontinued. It was a drugstore brand. I have tried Clinique and it gives me a cakey look. I am not adverse to wearing only a liquid foundation but I don't want it to settle in my lines and again I want a full coverage. Any help would be appreciated.

Tell me about your favorite dewy finish foundation?
Winter is almost here and I definitely need to switch to a foundation with a dewier finish.  Last winter I used Japonesque Luminous and it was fine...not as dewy as I would have liked.     So, do you have a fave?  Tell me about it!  It doesn't matter if it can't be found at Sephora and cost is not a big concern.     I need to get to a Dior counter to get a sample of Star. But I've read that it may be more matte than I'd like.

Looking for a colour similar to MAC NC45 but with a yellow undertone by Makeup forever
I haven't used any other foundation/concealer other than NC45 by MAC and their foundation that comes in numbers (No7). It's always been a little bit too dark for me and I literally have to blend it into my chest and all sorts! I was looking at Makeup Forever foundation in the colour 170 Caramel because I have more of a yellow undertone, and was wondering if anyone would you recommend this colour for me? I'm also buying from the UK so really don't want to have to send it back.  Thank you!

moisturizer so makeup don't get dark
Hi all =)  I tried finding previous topic on this but unable to so any link to previous post or if you have answer will be greatly appreciated ^__^     My face is really dry right now so I started to wear moisturizer and/or oil under my primer.  I tried several combination with different result: -  moisturizer (caudalie lip and eye and ole henriksen truth creme/ origin day ginzing), smahbox primer, bb cream, then smashbox powder.  I find using thosse moisturizer makes my face darker than it was before, resulting in my neck being much lighter than my face (so no good =I) - tarte oil, smahbox primer, bb cream, then smashbox powder.  Using this, my face so much streak it's not even funny.Applying powder makes it better but I spend so much time trying to get my bb cream to blend from the ugly streaks =(     With winter coming, I know there will be time to use moisturizer under makeup.  Do you guys have any recommendation for moisturizer that won't change the color of my makeup?  I'm pretty happy with my makeup routine right now but any recommendation for anything that should be change would be appreciated.    Thanks =)
