Need advice about makeup for acne prone skin in hot temperatures!!
I'm going away for Christmas to visit my boyfriend's family. My boyfriend is from the Caribbean and it is extremely hot and humid - temperatures that I am not used to whatsoever. My makeup already comes off after an hour or two or ends up being blotchy, and I do not want this happening when visiting his family. I am looking for the perfect combination of primer, foundation, and setting powder that will create a full-coverage look that will stay in place all day! Thanks!!

KOH GEN DO Aqua Foundation match
Hello all, Would love some advice on which color match would be good. For makeup forever, I'm 118 or the flesh color and in Bobbi Brown BB cream, I'm natural.  I'm pretty sure I'm a light-medium skin tone with either yellow or beige undertone. It's hard to tell sometimes.

Koh Gen Do 213
I have the Know Gen Do Aqua foundation in 213 which has the perfect undertone for my olive skin, but it's still too light for my skin that has seen the sun.  Does anyone have suggestions for how to darken it by just a shade?  I tried mixing it with a sample of 143 but then it lost the olive undertone and looked too peachy.  I was thinking about the Cover FX custom cover drops but I don't know if those would run pink on me.  Almost everything does.  Also, I live in the middle of nowhere so I can't drop by a Sephora or department store...or CVS...or Target...#middle #of #nowhere

How do I match my foundation shade for drugstore makeup?
I haven't done the official Color IQ color matching. However, I got matched for the Makeup Forever HD Ultra foundation as the shade R230 or R260, then I matched Too Faced Born This Way in Porcelain. I want to know how I can transfer those matches to drugstore foundations and makeup. Are there any websites or resources I can use? Thanks!

Which foundation should I try?
I like the Kat Von D tattoo foundation, but its a little too heavy for me. Right now, I'm using the Makeup Forever HD foundation, but I want to try something new. I like the HD foundation and the finish, but I want something with a little more coverage. Any recommendations?

On the hunt for foundation
I am in need of advice on good foundations! I have sensitive and combination skin that easily breakouts out from products, and have uneven skin tone.  I currently use Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation and do like that it doesn't cause breakouts.  However, I am looking for a foundation that still is good for my skin, but has a more flawless coverage and finish.  On days where I don't wear full makeup, recommendations for a good everyday BB or CC cream with some coverage would be good, too. Thank you!

Foundation Color Match Guerlain Lingerie De Peau- Please help!
Hi, everyone!   I received a sample a while ago of the Guerlain Lingerie De Peau foundation.  I just tried it for the first time a few days ago, and needless to say I am in LOVE.  However, I don't know what shade to buy.  This is a very expensive foundation so I do not just want to wing it.   I am going to go a couple shades darker than I am right now because I will be fake tanning soon for a vacation.  Normally when I am tan I wear shade light/medium neutral in Tarte or I've worn Medium Sand before.  I have neutral to warm undertones.  Please help!   Thank you!

Help me find a match in the new MUFE water blend foundation please!
Hi everyone! I tried a sample of the old version of this foundation in store and was given number 34 to try. My color IQ number (tested in the winter) was 2Y06. Can someone suggest which shade would match me from the new MUFE water blend foundation? Thank you so much in advance!   On a different but related note, can anyone compare the coverage of Laura Mercier candlelight glow foundation with this one?

Ordering Internationally
Hi,    I bought the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation months ago and am still in love with it. I am running low now and need to buy a new one. For some reason, in Canada this item is discontinued and keeps running out of stock, and there are no more fair skinned colours left!!! This is one of the only foundations that actually comes in a shade that is light enough for my skin. Can I order from the USA sephora?? How do I switch the website so I can see american dollars?? When I browsed on my phone, I got the USA site originally and they had all the shades in stock. Please help ASAP!!!   Thank you!!   Ciara

BB Cream for Acne Prone Skin
I am 24 and have been struggling with acne recently. I am on a skincare regimen that seems to be helping, but I would like a BB cream to wear for light coverage. Many BB Creams are very rich and leave my skin feeling oily, leading to breakouts. Does anyone know of any that have worked for acne-prone skin?

Hi mandio86,   Your exact concealer match would be Light 15, so I would actually recommend Light 9 as I think Light 5 would be too light for your skintone.  see post
