Looking for the perfect powder foundation
Hey everyone! I've been looking for the perfect powder foundation that fits to my skin. I live in Germany and the consultation in the cosmetic stores are the worst. We don't have a Sephora here plus the selection of products/brands aren't that big and it's very difficult to find the brands I'm usually used to. I've been using the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in the colour Tan Honey . And the Benefit Hello Flawless Powder Foundation in Beige but I would like to replace the Benefit product and find something similar from the brands Tarte or Too Faced.    Hope you can help me somehow.   Thanks in advance   V   p.s: I have oily skin       Thanks! V

MUFE Ultra HD foundation shade help
Hey guys, I've been searching online for a while now trying to figure out which shade of the MUFE foundation would be the best match for me, and all the answers I could find have been wildly different. Unfortunately going into a Sephora to get samples is not an option for me at the moment   I'm a MAC NC30-35/C3 and I match best to Too Faced Born This Way Natural Beige; to those of you who are about the same skintone, which shade do you think works best on you? Thanks in advance!

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Conceaker
I purchased the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer and I have been using it now for about a week. I have tried applying it with a stippling brush and a more compacted brush and with a beauty blender. After setting with translucent powder it starts to look cakey through out the day. I have oily skin. I was using Two Faced Born This Way and LOVE it but I wanted to try this one.  I really want to like this foundation. Any one have any suggestions?

I need help with color match for the smashbox studio skin 15 Hr. Shades online confusing.
I'm really interested in this long wearing foundation because I work long hours as a nurse and wear a mask in the operating room so that adds a challenge to wearing foundation 😀 I am a NW 20 and in Nars sheer glow which I'm wearing now I'm Santa Fe. But, I think it's a little dark, or its oxidizing in me. I am cool toned skin , but i also like wearing neutral toned foundation to toned down the redness on my cheeks.  The concerns i have  about the foundation is 1.1 looks very light but 2.1 looks too dark. The one in between looks too warm.  Many help would be appreciated.  Laura

(Darker than sante fe) and the one in the middle I think is too warm for me.  Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks Laura

What is the best long lasting primer for blemish prone combo skin?
I have combination skin that gets oily in the t-zone but when ever I have a blemish it gets super dry and creates flaky patches and I also get very dry on the outside of my face, around my nose and under my eyes. I also have large pores on my nose that I usually try to cover up and make sure make up doesn't get in there but it always does. I work in a office and rarely go outside but everyday my makeup comes off on my phone or smudges if I barely press on an itch. I finally found a make up that matches my skin tone (I'm a red-head with pale freckly skin) in the Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation (110=R220) and I love the coverage and the finish once I set it but even after setting it still rubs off during the day very easily. My make up looks good when I leave for work in the morning but when I get home that night it's patchy and has melted.    I've tried a lot of different make up primers and none of them really seemed to extend the wear of my make up. I've tried  -MUFE Step 1 Primer in Green (didn't really help color correct or keep my make up on longer) -MUFE Step 1 Primer in Smoothing (helped cover my pores on my nose and create a barrier but didn't extend the life of my make up)- -Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (made my face an oil slick) -Too Faced Hangover Primer (I LOVED how this made my face feel but it didn't help extend my makeup) -Benefit Porefessional (again helped with the pores but make up still melted off)   I've even tried the Urban Decay Oil Slick makeup spray which made my face really tight and uncomfortable and the Urban Decay All Nighter which I don't think made much of a difference. I use the RCMA no color powder to set my make up (which I really like because it doesn't make any dry patches look worse and it's not as thick feeling as MUFE HD Powder and doesn't have sparkles like the Laura Mercier).    If anyone could give me some advice to help all the work I put into making my makeup look good last until I get home I would really appreciate it.

Why is my foundation suddenly turning orange?
I have been wearing my color IQ matched liquid foundation for months with no problems, and suddenly in the last 3 days a few hours after getting to work I notice my face is orange. Not oompa loompa orange, but the foundation has an orange tint to it. It doesn't look like this when I put it on. I don't have anything new in my routine, so I applied my foundation with a brush instead of the beauty blender, and was still orange. Today I applied with my fingers, and left off my blush just to make sure that wasn't what was turning me orange. I'm still orange. I have pretty dry skin. Could it be that my foundation is old? Help?! What do I do?

Looking for a middle of the road foundation ($30-$36) for fair, dry/combination skin
I used Lancome and loved it but after a couple years i noticed my face was always flakey and it settled in my lines. I moisturize, use a primer, the works. I think my skin gets really weird in the changes of the season. I bought Lorac, and it really is hydrating but i'm not IN LOVE with it. I love the color but it doesn't stay on very long and my forehead tend to get oily looking throughout the day. I am looking for a foundation with great coverage for dry/combination skin. I am very fair and my skin tends to be acne-prone. but i think its due mostly to it being dry/irritated. Preferably middle of the road price...something less than $40.    also if you have any general skincare product faves let me know too   Thanks!

  Hi guys! I was wondering if someone could help me out with finding a nice foundation or just recommend one. I am bellow the age of 18 and have normal/combo skin which leans more to dry skin than oily.  I am searching for a foundation or BB cream with medium coverage or light to medium just not full coverage basically. Any foundation recommendations would be nice but BB cream also because summer's coming and I prefer BB creams over foundation throughout the summer. I hope someone can help me out, anyway thanks!

Having a hard time picking between Nars All Day Luminous Foundation and Becca Ultimate Coverage Cream
Hello everyone! So I've been debating between these two foundations for the longest and I need to purchase one bottle before I head onto my trip to India..   My skin is mainly oily and I do have dark spots left from acne so coverage is a huge deal for me (which both of the foundations fulfill) I like that a little goes a long way with them as well. i really adore the coverage I get with Nars which is just a tiny bit better than Becca's but Nars sometimes leaves my skin looking extremely shiny. I really favor Becca's matte look. It is SO hard for me to decide. I am going to be in some really hot weather and I would need something that will last the day without having it smear or get very oily. I'd like to know you guy's opinion on which foundation works best and your experiences as well! Thank you so much.
