Almost every foundation I've tried the color is either too orange or too light. I have fair skin but it's not fair enough to need the lightest shade. I was using estee lauder double wear in shade 1n2 ecru and out of all the shades it is the one that almost matches but it is still too orange. Now I use Lancome tient idole ultra in shade 140 ivory and dual finish powder in 130 porcelain ivory and even though they are neutral tones they still make me look super orange also. What tone then would I be to get the perfect match foundation where I won't look too white or too orange?
Hi guys, I recently purchased the Eve Lom oil free radiance foundation. I love the color, staying power and the way it makes my skin feel but I have the hardest time applying it. It's on the thicker side and doesn't spread that well. I try to work in smaller sections and apply thinly but I find it looks weird and patchy in certain parts of my face. Every once in a while I manage to apply it perfectly and it looks great but I haven't been able to figure out what the difference is. I use the hourglass primer and always do it after proper skincare. I also find that putting on powder afterwards sometimes sets it nicely and other times creates almost a weird marbled pattern on my phase. Anyone here with this foundation and tips on applying? I've tried brush, beauty blender, fingers, you name it. Thoughts?
I recently purchased this concealer online. When I received it I tested it right away. I found that the Fairly Light Natural shade had a strong pink undertone and won't match my skin (Light-Light/Medium with Neutral/Beige tones).. Does anyone have a suggestion as to which colour I should try instead? Thanks!
This is my HG foundation for years. But--as I've gotten older, I'm not producing as much oil I am still highly acne prone and struggling to find a moisturizer that will counteract the drying effects of this foundation but not break me out. So I was wondering, what moisturizer is everyone using underneath this foundation? Thanks!
Can someone tell me the difference between these two? I love the matchmaker serum foundation because it doesn't break me out or irritate my super sensitive skin (don't love the color). I am looking for a fuller coverage, though, and I heard they may be discontinuing matchmaker. Are they pretty much the same formula? is there anything in Vibrancy that may break out sensitive skin? Any info/advice would be most helpful. Thanks.
Hi everyone! A few weeks ago, I purchased a Tom Ford lipstick and a YSL lipstick. I did return them due to them both being impulse purchases. I want a good lipstick for my wedding in June. I have the gloss "Blushing Bride" (because of the name and color), but I want a lipstick for under it. I have fair skin, and I plan on having a little color before the big day. I'm not into the bold lip colors. If I wear lipstick, it's Lancome's Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor in "Love It". What would you recommend to go with "Blushing Bride"? Thanks!!

I've been using Caudalie Beauty Elixer as a setting spray for a couple of years and I like it, but I know that a few other setting sprays have come out more recently. What setting sprays work best for those of you with dry skin? Thanks!
I have in my basket the Laura Mercier matte radiance baked powder compact in 04, and the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in golden light I can't get both and I have no idea which one to get!!! My skin is medium with yellow to neutral undertones, oily, large pores on my cheeks (so looking for one with the least texture and shine). I like a warm bronzer, I'm not looking to contour with one. I don't mind a subtle orange tone they end up looking alright on my skin but I don't like cool or neutral tones they end up looking muddy on my skin! Any ideas?!?!
I am searching for some foundation suggestions. I don't know if I should be using a powder or liquid. I used to use Mufe hd. Lately everything I have tried has made my skin look worse. Even with various primer the texture of my skin is accentuated. I have dry skin, am 40 yrs old. At this point, I am not particular about finish. Any suggestions. Please help
Hello can someone suggest to me which color to try in the Burberry cashmere? The best match for me in any makeup so far is MAC stuido fix powder plus foundation in C8 and the Diorskin forever in 050. Also I have dry normal skin. Is this brand ok for that? Thanks a a lot.
I am curious to see what Naked Urban Decay Palettes you own. I own the Naked Urban Decay Palette 2, I just purchased it recently considering that I was confused about which palette to pick out of all 4 of them.
Does anyone one know why the case for the Stila Eyes are the Window, Soul palette has been changed from the gorgeous yellow and rose gold compact, to a matte pale gold case/packaging with "Stila" on the front of it?? It is only the 'Soul' palette, the other three palettes in the collection have the original mirrored gold cases. I find this very strange and am hoping this is not a permanent change so I can get the palette in the original mirrored gold case.
This is a long shot, but I wasn't able to snag Mac's oh darling highlighter when it was released and just wondering if there is anyone who by chance purchased multiples or purchased and didn't like it and would be willing to part ways with it? Not looking to spend a ridiculous price on it though. Have seen it for $80 and up on ebay/amazon etc. Thanks so much
My skin is normal to dry, and most foundation/setting powders look dry, cakey, and like they're crumbling and flaking off my skin. However, I am interested in trying out baking for my undereyes and maybe my chin. Does anyone know of a loose powder that won't make me look too matte and powdery?
