hey! so recently i've been loving this new foundation. prior to finding it, i was obsessed with Double Wear. Just looking to hear people's thoughts on the new foundation/if anyone has has switched from Double Wear to this! <3
Hello all I would like to try a new powder. I've been using Cover FX Blotting powder in medium over my foundation and BB cream. My skin type is oily that's why I would like a powder or blotting powder whatever they are called these days lol. Thanks for the help! Also if you could recommend a face brush along with the powder that would be great.
Oh god. Today, I tried out Benefit Hello Flawless foundation sample I've got weeks ago. Recently, I was actively searching for a foundation that suits me better than Nars Sheer glow and was considering between Chanel and TF. When I applied this HF foundation, I thought I found my HG foundation. It was really the best foundation I've ever worn...so smooth, right coverage, my skin looked flawless! and... After washing my face, I found some red bumpy breakouts (whitehead-ish, something you can easily pop up, not a big inflammatory one) on my face...and when was the last time this happened to me? It was when I used Bare Minerals mineral powder foundation. Wait, is this Bismuth Oxychloride? I did my research, and yes, there you are! I'm just so sad. I immediately ordered this foundation from Sephora since I just knew! it's the perfect foundation..but didn't know that it's that plus Bismuth Oxychloride. I was just a step away, and now I know I have to return it. SO SAD!
Hey Girls! I've been looking into the highlight & contouring style these days, I've watched videos on how to do it myself. I'm not very good at it either, and I am a beginner with that technique. So I'd like to advance my makeup skills. What do you suggest I use? I hate anything that comes in a powder palette. I prefer creamy palettes. Any advice will do. Thank You :-)
Hi! I was wanting to try a Mercier tinted moisturizer but since I am a fair redhead and I know I'm tough to match I'm not sure which shade to order. I use Make Up Forever HD in 110 in winter and 115 in summer if that helps. Have any ideas?
Can you recommend a great pressed powder especially to use to prevent midday shine? I've used MAC in the way past but haven't needed it as much as my skin ages and has become more dry. However, lately I have leaned more towards the natural & mineral make-up brands to deal w/my sensitive and more reactive skin. It could be my moisturizer but I seem to have more shine, especially on my forehead now during the day. I have fair to light medium skin w/red undertones.
I'm curious on what you ladies would do. I've always thought foundation products with a very slight yellow hue match my skin best (I've been 1Y07 or 1Y06 when using colorIQ in stores). But when I talked to a Cover FX rep at the Rouge event she thought my tones were more pink and convinced me to buy the P30. In fairness, the G30 was WAY too yellow for my skin so I was thinking I'd be more of a neutral in this line. She only tested the product on my neck since I had a full face of makeup on and it seemed fine but I'm nervous. I explained my hesitation to her for all the reasons above and she said just to return it if I didn't like it, but I try to use that only as a very last resort. What would you do?
I currently own Eco Tools brushes but am looking to invest in a high end brush set. I am not really interested in eye brushes because I do own a Kat Von D set. I was looking more more for a powder brush, blush brush, bronze brush, contour brush and a highlight brush. Any recommendations or suggestion of your favorite set? Thank you in advance!!
Hi all! I have the new Cover FX Drops and, so far, really like using them with my Paula's Choice SPF moisturizers. I can get any level of coverage I want along with the benefits of moisturizer and SPF. Just curious, though, what skincare or primer products (hopefully with SPF) have been tried by others to obtain a satin finish with the drops. Looking forward to answers on this-great product!
Hello, I could use some recommendations, have never used a BB or CC cream before. Is there something out there that I could order online & have it be the right shade? I am 67 with fair, normal-to-dry skin. When I've used tinted moisturizers in the past, I usually get a very light shade. For 3 years, I've been using Jane Iredale loose powder in "Satin". It has great coverage, but I'm getting kind of tired of it. I am not sure whether to try a BB or a CC. If I put powder over it, I don't need SPF in the cream. Mainly I'd like to brighten, cover redness & reduce the appearance of large pores. Thanks for any help! (I was about to choose Clinique Age Defense & then read too many reviews saying it was heavy & difficult to apply).
I am looking for a good under-eye setting powder. I know that Jaclyn Hill uses or well most beauty youtuber's use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder but that comes in the palette and they don't seem to sell it just by itself. The Anastasia seems to be the most popular I have seen when I watch makeup videos online. Are there any other ones that are just as good but not in a palette?
With the 15% off love note going on, I'd like to pick up an eye shadow palette or 2 and am having a tough time finding something that I like and that's different! I have very deep set, but large brown eyes and have lighter/fair skin (with dark brown hair). Any time I apply colors like blues, purples, or greens - they tend to make me look like I have a black eye. My go-to's are the Urban Decay naked palettes and I'd really like to try something with more color. Last week, an SA at Sephora suggested Innerstellar by Kat Von D after I explained the situation. She showed me how the dark blue actually had a lighter iridescent payoff on the skin - but unfortunately, after getting home and applying, I didn't see anything like this and just my usual black eye :/. . And not just something I get to gently apply on the outer corners that doesn't actually show up :/. Or am I just doomed to only being able to use color on my eyes in this one single way??
I currently wear Koh Gen Do's Aqua foundation in shade 213. I love everything about it, but it is getting too light for summer. What color would be one shade darker but still have the same yellow undertone?
Okay so I am having the hardest time picking a really good pigmented eyeshadow palette. Nothing overly expensive or anything. What is everyone's all-time fav' eyeshadow palette that they would purchase over and over again and use basically on a daily basis? I am hindu, so i have light-medium skin color. Some shadow colors don't look that great on me. like dark browns as my skin is already in that area lol...if a palette were to have those i would use it just as a underline on my waterline if that makes sense. i love colorful colors and matte colors and especially golds. But i am interested in ones that have a varity of colors yet that suit warm/cool toned skin i am neutral in that department. and something that is not an over-sized palette lol. any suggestionss????
I am looking for a new foundation that is moderate coverage, but does not leave a matte or a heavy powder appearance which seems to make fine lines and pores ten times worse. I am currently using Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation and not liking the finished product. I am also curious if using Dr. Jart+ CC Essence Balm, Dr. Jart+ BB Bounce Beauty Balm, AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, or something similar to Lancôme MIRACLE CUSHION Liquid Cushion Compact Foundation. Also, I am looking for concealer other than the benefit watts up or benefit flawless brightning concealer. Open to other products. Finishing powders that wont amplify the current issues for setting my makeup? Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Powder?
Do I use bare minerals powder over the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue? What about concelaer, I have dark undereye circles - Do I need a concelaler for dark circles while using Complexion Rescue? Also, I wear Bare Minerals in Light. What would I use in Complexion Rescue?
I have tried both Urban Decay and Kat Von D's but neither help with that pop of color I am looking for. I have neutral tan skin and some colors (like from Kat Von D's Chrysalis) just don't show up the way I would like them to. It's funny because they look great on my arm but don't show up as well on my eyes. I have also tried a white base one (NYX) and it was so so. Still not the results I was hoping for (or see in youtube videos). Do you have a favorite? And how much do you put on? I have tried a light coating, slathered on, something in the middle, have applied with fingers, brushes, beautyblender and sigh, no pop. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Hey Everyone, I need some help and advice. I have a mixture of combination skin I have dry patches but throughout the day I get shiny due to my face producing oils. I always find with my foundation (YSL foundation) that it breaks down within 2 - 3 hours after applying it. I don't know if I should be using a specific type of primer, Im currently using a colour correcting one or if I should use a different powder to set my foundation. Honestly I really just want to keep my foundation in place. I see all these ladies who have such flawless foundation throughout the whole day and I would love to know how they do it. Thank you!
