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?
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!
I have very oily skin, and I can never find a foundation for it. I have spent so much money on foundation. I always wash my face before applying anything. I use primers, setting sprays and nothing works. My face will get oily in a matter of minutes/ an hour. I What kind of foundation would you recommend me?
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!
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.
Now that is getting drier, my non t zone is extremely dry and my t zone still gets oily. I want a natural looking foundation that doesn't cling to dry spots and doesn't seperate where I get oily. AND LASTS ALL DAY. I've been thinking about trying out: Tarte Amazonian Clay, Josie Maran Vibrancy, MUFE, Nars All Day Luminous and Becca Ever Matte. Any advice or suggestion
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?
I'm currently on the search for a new primer. I specifically have very oily skin and have to blot quite often. Right now, I am using Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC44. I previously tried their radiance primer but didn't have any luck with that. Any recommendations for full-proof primers or even primer/foundation combinations?

After sharing some of Too Faced's older packaging for products when I noticed they were relaunching their Papa, Don't Peach blush in a new look to correspond to their adorable illustrations and renderings in palettes like Totally Cute and their PB&J one, I decided to create a thread to dedicate toward the sharing and showing of how brand images and packaging development has changed over the course of the years! This can be a fun way to discover the history behind brands and really see how much change and growth has taken place! Here's some to start! Did you know that Urban Decay's eye shadows used to come in fully sealed metal containers with their lids resembling the grating on manhole covers (bottom)? A UD rep told me it was an ode to the brand's NY roots and how many traversing the many streets allows pedestrians to see these so often. Of course, the packaging has since changed, then it opened up with a little plastic circle in the center to see the color and the metal was changed to silver plastic (top right), the packaging now is still plastic, but is shiny and allows the pans to pop out to add into the UD palettes they have since created (top left): **As users below have commented, UD actually calls California home to the brand, I've kept the above intact because it's what a UD vendor told me years back. Perhaps the manhole cover aspect was true, and the vendor merely mistaken said NY rather than Cali (or maybe UD wanted to have a tribute to NY in its brand)** Smashbox prides itself on being not only a photo-ready brand, but also a line that got its start in an actual photo studio (out in L.A.). Ever notice the pans on their Photo Filter Powder? It's a camera shutter to pay tribute to how integrated their makeup is to all the photo shoots that go on daily in their studio! To touch back on the mention of the Too Faced items, here are some images from their older products. They had a very sensual, but cheeky feel to their packaging and featured a lot of retro illustrations!
I have really dehydrated skin and am desperately looking for a recommendation for primer/foundation combo. I find that my nose and forehead are really bad, the foundation will get really patchy. I've tried the Makeup Forever HD Foundation and Hydrating Primer, I tried Nars Sheer Glow and Nars Pro Prime Light Optimizing primer, Stila Stay All Day Foundation with Too Faced Primer and Poreless. The last combo was okay during the summer but I live where it gets very dry and cold in the winter. Thank you in advance Laurie
I really want to get a new concealer, and I've heard great things about the nars radiant creamy concealer, and the urban decay naked skin weightless one too. i would love to hear your opinions on these concealers, and tell me which one is better!
Hi, I have recently moved to an area that has colder climate and since it has started getting colder I really want to wear beanies and scarves. The only problem is that all my winter accessories are really light colors and makeup transfer is really noticeable. I have tried using matte foundations, setting powder and setting spray but my skin is really oily so it transfers anyway. What are some products or suggestions to help with this problem? Thank you
Hi everyone, I've been having issues with my makeup separating about 4 hours after application. I know there are several threads about this but the main issue always seems to be mixing silicone/oil/water bases and I'm pretty sure all of my products are silicone-based; I've listed them and my skincare routine below. My skincare routine: - Origins Checks and Balances frothy face wash - Origins Modern Friction dermabrasion (every few days) - Tarte Drink of H20 gel moisturizer (replace with Origins Night-A-Mins cream in evening) My face makeup routine: - primer (I've tried Benefit POREfessional, Cover FX Mattifying Primer with anti-acne treatment, and Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish) - under-eye colour correct (First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy) - foundation (Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme) - under-eye concealer (Sephora Bright Future) - regular concealer when needed (NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer) - setting powder (Laura Mercier translucent loose powder) - blush (NARS) - setting spray (Urban Decay de-slick; have also tried all-nighter) I have these problems with and without the colour correct as well as the setting spray. Any insight would be very helpful!
