I recently went to a contouring class through Sephora and, since I have dry skin, I was advised to use the Anastasia cream contour pallet. I absolutely loved it, the product was easy to use and looked great. However, a couple hours after application, my face started itching. My skin type is dry and sensitive and I use dermatologist approved moisturizers and cleansers but normal Tarte or Bare Minerals for my face. I figured the Anastsia would be fine but maybe not? Is there any advice on another good cream contour kit for sensitive skin? Or should I put something in-between my foundation and the contour kit to help? Thanks! Amanda
Hello I need some major help, lol My skin tone is pale, but yellowish and with lots of redness. I use the sephora primer, MUFE HD foundation and the Becca Concealer and Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. In selfies I look fine, but as soon as I take a pic with flash i look horrible, like a ghost, like I am wearing too much makeup, makeup that isn't the right color for me. is it just because the Flash pictures are HD+flash=horrible makeup? I looked up a few youtube videos, but they didnt really help. so I am posting my question here and will upload pictures... please help. what am I doing wrong? should i just wear darker foundation and concealer? but then it will be too dark in daylight...ugh I dont know i have attached a few pictures so you guys can hopefully see what I am talking about . thanks in advance
Hi, guys! I live in the MIDDLE. OF. NOWHERE right now so I can't actually get to a department store, Sephora, Ulta, CVS....anything, which makes it impossible for me to find a matching foundation. I ordered a bunch of color samples from Choix to see if any match me, and of course, not a single one does. But I was wondering, if I swatched them (and some foundations I ownI) on me in natural sunlight and posted a picture, would anyone be able to help me out? Or just give opinions on what shades in any formula that I should look into? It's a bit sad always looking like a floating head in photos. My face always looked either too dark or too pink! I think everyone understands the struggle to a point.
Hello ladies, so face powders have always been my issue. They are too expensive because I go through them really fast. A high end powder lasts me a month, two at the most. So even though I prefer to use high end makeup and don't remember last time being at drugstore, powders is the thing I only buy at Ulta and buy it super cheap. Right now I use Maybelline FIT ME powder. So my question is: 1) Do high end powders also last you that little? Is it just me? How do you save on powders? Because I never see them in sephora favorites sets, or gwps, or samples, or anywhere where we get goodies for free! 2) Any drugstore face powders you would recommend? Thanks
Hi I currently use Merle Norman Lasting foundation. That stuff stays on! I live in a humid environment and am I outside a lot. I don't have time to stop and look at my face to see how oily it is or not. But I'm in a mood for a change. What foundation out there will stay matte, stay on, but not look or feel like I have a layer of foundation on? Thank you.
Hi everyone, I use "almost powder make-up, no 3-light" from clinique. I couldn't find it here and I can't go to any store (very soon mom-to-be) to check for an alternative. Could you advice me something comparable (similar price, easiness etc)? Also I would be grateful if you could also let me know which colour I should buy. As said, I can't go to a store and check for myself

I love Lancome's Teint Miracle foundation and the last time I purchased it, I used Buff 7(W). Today, there were only six shades in the store, no 7W - I'm worried it's going to be discontinued... Although now that I've tried it at home, I realize it also smells different! I'm guessing it's also been reformulated and I don't like the scent... I'm open to returning this and buying something new. Could anyone suggest similar foundations that are in the same price point? What I loved about TM is that it never felt or looked like I was wearing foundation - it's light and blends so well - but the formula was buildable and offered decent coverage. Any help would be much appreciated
I have been on the quest for the right foundation and I keep coming up empty... I'm looking for a build able medium coverage. I have normal/dry skin and I feel like the products I've tried with a matte finish leave my face looking cakey and dusty. Has anyone with moderately dry skin have any hydrating recommendations that also won't leave me looking oily? Thank you!
What shade would I be in Nars sheer foundation?! (Currently my perfect shade in Nars tinted moisturizer is Finland) I don't have a store near me so I order online. My skin tone is definitely more yellow than pink.
Does anyone know the best bronzers for light olive skin? I have the Bobbi Brown's Golden Light bronzer, but it's so pink/orange on me that my boyfriend asked if I had blush around my face....I would really like something with a green or grey undertone. Ideas?
I'm using Kat Von D concealer for red blemishes on my face. I was told at the store that the concealer is good enough to cover tattoo's. I put it on my cheeks at 6 am and by 8 am my red blemishes reappear. I've tried applying more at the first application but hasn't helped. Any suggestions? Thanks
My skintone is NC35. I use shades "Light to Medium Peach" and "Peach" in the Bobbi Brown Corrector. I am looking for a pressed powder that I can use to set this corrector with as I use it on its own. If anyone could suggest any drugstore and high-end suggestions, it would be extremely helpful. Thank you. Note: A powder that wouldn't cause any flashback.
