So I'm looking to buy the Dior Airflash foundation and am unsure which color I should grab. I'm currently about NC25 or so in MAC, and I wear UD Naked Skin and mix #2 with #4 to make the perfect shade. I was thinking that Linen 201 would be perfect, but not sure if maybe it'll be too light? I will probably get a bit more color this summer, but no darker than UD #4 or MAC NC30. Thanks everyone! I'm light with olive undertones btw.

I have hazel eyes and fair skin, but black eyebrows and eyelashes, what are some nice blushes and highliters? I know Becca Champagne Pop is a popular one, but that just doesnt work for me. It's too yellow on my skin
I'm new to makeup. So I finally decided to try out SEPHORA, only because I've heard great things. I'm looking for a foundation and concealer for semi-dry sensitive skin, something that's light, medium to full coverage, something that looks natural, and that's long-lasting. Any suggestions or recommendations?
Here's the issue: When I'm putting on my makeup in the morning, my foundation never seems to want to stick to my nose. It will be blotchy and is NEVER as smooth as the rest of my makeup. I sweat from my nose...wondering if that is the problem. But I try to put it on when I'm cool, and it still never seems to help. Here's my makeup routine: I use Marc Jacobs coconut primer, then the concentrated foundation. I brush it all on with the Pro Airbrush #55. Then, I use the E.L.F. contouring brush to put a little bit of Bare Minerals bronzer on my cheeks. I use a Bare Minerals kabuki brush to put Cover FX Illuminator on the bridge of my nose, the top of my cheek bones, my forehead and chin...and that's about when my nose makeup starts getting blotchy. Then I go over it with the Marc Jacobs Perfection Powder (using a foundation brush I purchased at ULTA) and brush and brush my nose to try to smooth it out. I have also tried using a beauty blender, but that just seems to rub the makeup off... I have dry skin, but sometimes my nose can get oily. Could that be the issue?? PLEASE HELP. This is killing me inside. ;'(
So, I've been looking for a foundation for oily skin. I tend to sweat from heat or what not very easily and haven't tried very much out there. I've been told about tint moisturizers, BB-CC Creams, minerals, but i can't seem to find one that looks the way I want it to on my face. I'm looking for something light, doesn't transfer too much, WATERPROOF??, and basically something that doesnt look like its there at all. I just need one for redness but don't want anything that make my oily skin more oily or crack. HELP! haha as you can already tell, im all over the place with what I'm looking for. Any guidance?? Thanks Beauty Queens.
MJ Coconut Primer + KatVonD Lock-It Foundation (liquid) + bareMinerals bareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer. Yyaaahhhss!! Wow, what a difference the damp beauty blender (just bought my first one) & the Marc Jacobs primer made! Barely used any Lock-It. Treated the blender like a cushion compact applicator & just kept patting. The Lock-It foundation applied in such a lovely thin, even layer. So natural looking (but still had coverage). I applied the bareSkin bronzer serum also with the blender (barely damp) as a true bronzer just where sun would hit. So, so pretty!! Loved it!! I did use a pat or two of KatVD Lock-It powder foundation over 2 small patches of melasma on my chin, and Guerlain Les Violettes pressed powder to set undereyes, and to barely add a finish very sheerly in t-zone.
Hi people! I wanted to know some suggestions for a light foundation for dry skin over the summer? I am into very glowy, radiant skin. Oh, and I want to make sure it looks good in flash photography ! Thank you!
It doesn't matter what foundation or primer I use, my foundation ALWAYS starts to separate on my face after a short few hours, starting on my nose area and spreading to my mouth,chin & forehead. I don't know what I am doing wrong. PLEASE HELP ME
I have been using Cover FX N40. I was using translucent powder until I went into this public bathroom one day and my face looked like I had white dots all over it from the powder settling in my pores. Then I switched to a pressed powder. I live in a remote part of Alaska and cannot go into a store for help. Someone help me please....
anyone knows how does Too Faced | Born This Way Foundation works on combination/dehydrated skin? I really like how it covers blemishes without looking heavy! I have oily skin and but dry patches on my cheekbones, in between my brows and chin. Also, i live in a country with tropical rainforest climate. How does this foundation performs in heat and high humidity? Please feel free to recommend any products (primer, foundation, setting sprays) suitable for me!
Hello Everyone! I live super far away in the Yukon, no Sephoras in miles! Last time I was in a big city I bought a Make up Forever Face & Body foundation that matched my face absolutely perfectly. I placed an order online since I almost ran out, and there is nothing in the container that says the name of the shade, just a #12 etched in the glass on the bottom. So I chose shade #12 from the website, but what arrived is about 4 shades too dark, although it does say #12 on it! The worst part is that it takes forever to arrive here on the mail, and I am virtually out of makeup, and no idea what my true color match is yet. My skin is somewhat fair but not completely pale, more on the yellowish undertone category than rosey, but I am most definitely not a caramel shade! HELP!!
Please help me find a new full coverage foundation and compact powder. I have been using Cover FIX, New shade and a translucent loose powder. My pores are on the larger side and I noticed that it seems to sit in my pores. I want a full cover look, that evens my skin tone and also diminishes my pores. I am oily in the T zone and live in a humid climate in southeast Alaska.
I have very oily skin and I have issue with my makeup. I have been through countless different brands of foundation and haven't been able to find one that can withstand the oil my face is producing. By the end of the day my face has become so oily that my makeup has basically either fallen off my face or caked up so bad that it looks awful. On top of all these people ask me whether I'm in my 50's. I'm 44 years old and because of my work pressure, my face looks tired and there are wrinkles under my eyes and forehead. I have heard botox treatment helps to regain the lost youthfulness so I'm thinking of undergoing the procedure from a cosmetic dermatology centre in Richmond Hill ( http://www.thecentrefordermatology.com/procedures/ anti-aging/botox-cosmetic/ ). Can I get botox in oily skin? Can anyone recommend a good makeup for oily skin? Thanks!!
Hi, I have a question regarding my skin. What do you guys recommend as primer, moisturizer, etc to apply before I do my my make up. The biggest problem is the area in my nose where my make up literally gets really patchy and it removes within an hour of finishing my make up. I have try several primers and setting sprays so what is your best advice? Thanks a lot!
I'm a NW25 in MAC concealers and was recently matched to Light Warm in Urban Decay Naked Skin? Is this correct? If not is there anything I can do with it? Like contouring or something? If its that light. I don't know.
What highlighter and contour do you suggest and also what brushes to use? I really want to start highlighting and contouring my face but am so overwhelmed by all the different options! I'm a beginner at highlighting/contouring and have just recently started using brushes!
I've been using MAC's mineralized skin finish powder in medium deep for years now to set my foundation. I love the sheen it leaves on my face as well as the little bit of coverage it adds. I would like to switch up my routine a little so I am look for similar powders carried at Sephora. Thanks! Xx
