So I need to talk to someone! I have been getting my wish list ready for chic week and one of the items I wanted to buy is the gamglow whitening device that was priced 199 dollars for a long time. Today I was checking my list again and for my surprise the same item is priced 220 dollars! Are you serious Sephora? 😪😪😪

In search of foundation
I have been in search of a foundation that will give me a flawless matte look. I have oily skin that is prone to breakouts. I want something that is easy to apply, buildable coverage, not cakey, and doesn't look like its melting by noon. Also something that is sweat proof or doesn't transfer easily would be great. Right now I am using Covergirl Outlast Stay foundation and then MAC blot powder to set it. I feel like it doesnt stay on and looks cakey up close. Any suggestions are appeciated.

No makeup. Actually.
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.   None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).   This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.   Anyone else brave enough?

I have red hair and very very fair skin, I have a few several different contour palettes and they are all just too dark, so it looks like I rubbed dirt on my fact and the highlighters don't even show up on my skin because I am so pale.  Do you have any recommendations for contour makeup for very pale skin?

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE BRONZER AND WHY?
I'm looking for a new bronzer.  I am 45 and have light skin, light brown hair and hazel/green eyes.  Ideally I'd like something that looks natural, but has some luminous qualities. I don't want glitter, but I don't want all matte because I'm not using this as a contour but as a true bronzer for the summer.  My preference is powder for ease of application, but I would try a liquid or powder.   Thank you!

TALK TO ME ABOUT POWDER(s), PLEASE
hi guys. alright, here's a little thing about me: i don't use powder. i have 1 compact, it's covergirl clean powder. i've had it for ages, very very rarely use it, and i frankly don't even know it's intended purpose (it's not translucent and it sets and covers a little). i don't think i always need powder. but there are days i very much do.   i like a glow rather than a matte face (i work too hard on this skin just to mute it) and i struggle with dehydration even though my skin is typically combo/normal. because of these variables, powder scares me (past experiences have dried me out and highlighted dehydrated areas).    but i'd like my makeup to be set and help my foundation look as flawless as possible. i can't be bothered with both a setting AND finishing powder, so, i'm interested in a few things: NARS loose light reflecting powder and the compact pressed version (i've heard better things about the loose, but like the portability of the compact, so would like to know people's experiences with either). i'm also interested in their new powders--they contain hyaluronic acid--but these may be too new for anyone to really report on them. the hourglass ambient lighting powder in diffused light has my attention, though i'm so pale it worries me as well.    open to any and all suggestions and input. help guide me, friends.

I'm using kat von d shade 48... it's just a little too light and a little yellow for me.  I love the way it covers and would like to stay with this brand. unless anyone can suggest a similar brand with this coverage.  back to kat von d - should I try shade 49? this looks dark on the Sephora website.  is this really that much darker than 48 or does it just look this way?    thank you for any input...

My fiance and I ride motorcycles and lately I've noticed my ALWAYS oily skin becomes cakey and dry after a ride. We have full helmets on so I'm not getting too much wind.

HELP? ADVICE? OILY SKIN NEED NEW FOUNDATION!t
Im stuck between Kat Von D and MUFE Mat Velvet. Ok so ive tried both with the too faced hangover primer as recommended for my oily skin ( i was using stuff like smashboxs purple pore filling primer and mufe matte primer, and sephora employee told me these types were no good for my oily skin since my foundation was sliding off and she recommended more water based primers). I couldnt decided which to buy and what primer is best for them. I have oily skin on my tzone but sometimes dry on my chin. Some foundations on my tzone either slide off or get a little pathcy, i could never find anything that stays and look smooth out like how i first apply foundation. I want something that last hours, i go to school for 12 hours and would like something where i dont have to touch up alot. Any suggesting? i also use urban decay slick setting spray and setting powder after but only helps a little. I want to buy either foundation but i dont know which have better benefits?   Kat Von D Pros : stayed on for 8 hours maybe more good coverage   Cons: a little patchy on T-zone after a while a little dry on chin   MUFE Mat-Velvet Pros: Stayed all lovely for 4 hours did not dry out chin   Cons: Completely slid off of t-zone I got oily

Powder foundation
Recently I've discovered the joy that is powder foundation. My main question is which you prefer: Bare Minerals Original or Matte? Or if you don't like either, what's your favorite powder foundation?   I've tried the BM Original and I like it but I'm not really a fan of it's sheen, however subtle it may be. I was considering the matte formulation instead to avoid this, but it doesn't have a single ingredient in common with the original. Also, I find my skin gets oily after just a few hours of wear of the original, which isn't really my favorite.
