Hello, I want to purchase the tarte powder foundation but i'm a little lost on which color to get. I am a mac NC 30-35 currently, I also used bare minerals original foundation in golden medium. Thanks!
Hi everyone! I'm NC40 and kinda new to highlighters. I bought Becca's champagne pop and love it. Any recommendations for medium skintone? I prefer sublt non glittery (nothing more than becca). Il love the LM matte radiance... but thats too white for me. Its a beautiful highlight on the cheek though. What are your favouriteS?
What's your favorite nail polish and why? Do you have a brand that you absolutely adore? My favorites come down to ease of application because I'm not exactly patient nor do I have a particularly steady hand. So far, my favorite brands are Sparitual, 100% Pure, and Julep.
I am looking for a higher end concealer that doesn't crease, looks natural and lasts on oily skin. I have tried a lot of drugstore concealers, and I find that they are too harsh for my sensitive skin and crease way too much.
For years I have been trying different skin makeup products both drugstore and high end foundations, concealers , moisturizers and powders all claiming to keep oily skin matte and while some did just that it was always at the cost of looking cakey. My skin only needs light coverage products to cover up redness, blemishes and dark circles around my eyes ( and something that keeps my oily t zone mattified). However I have yet to encounter any natural, light coverage products for oily skin that do just this. It seems that the foundations are either too much coverage(don't look natural at all!!), the concealers crease too much and look too cakey under my eyes(and feel dry) or they just drip off my tzone all together(it gets gross).Does anyone else experience this with makeup products and has anyone found any products that work on oily skin but look natural?
Quick question: my mom wanted a eye shadow palette focusing in the brown family. I was torn between the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette and Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics. Which palette would people recommend? Thanks!
hi I'm interested in a nice dewy glow finish for my dry skin. Can anyone suggest any drug store or Sephora makeup setting sprays that will make my makeup last with giving me the dewy glow as well.? I would appreciate suggestions. Looking for an affordable spray that will do the job. Thanks.
I recently tried the halo powder and am in love with the beautiful glowing finishing. The problem is that I can't seem to find a color match in smashbox . My skin is light/medium olive and the light/med powder was quite dark and a bit orange on my skin after it oxidized. The light/neutral powder looked quite pale. The Bare minerals in medium beige is a great color match but not the glowing finish of halo. I love how the halo glows without any trace of glitter or sparkle.
I believe I used too tacky a base for my Too Faced Natural Matte. The eyeshadows seem super powdery and there is a lot of fallout. Would the Neutral Matte be any better- even though some of the shadows are the same and overlap but are the shimmery shades better or do they have the same amount of fallout? I am thinking about exchanging the Matte palette but then again perhaps I need a better primer. I used too tacky a primer which I already know was my mistake and the eyeshadow clumped in places and seemed patchy. Who loves this palette and how do you prefer to use it? Do you find the fallout a turn off?? Thanks <3
Hi, I just recently purchased the Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Ink in # 10 Red Essence and I LOVE it!!! I was wondering if any of you guys know a good lip liner that will pair well with this product to make last a little longer. Thank you in advanced to every suggestions! -Maria
Like most girls I've been wearing makeup since jr. highish age and have always struggled finding the correct shade. I'm also very low maintenance and prefer super simple, easy to do makeup, but I've been dealing with severe adult acne and have started using makeup more and more to help cover up and draw attention away from my problem areas. I went to a Sephora store and was color matched as 1R05. I bought the bareMinerals matte foundation in fair and correcting concealer in light 1, which both match my skin wonderfully. I'm wanting to find blush and/or bronzer to do some simple contouring, but am totally lost as to how to choose the correct shade. Please help! Thank you.
I posted about this on another board a moment ago, forgetting that the Customer Service board doesn't appear in the "feed." I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen: Okay, this is strange. I just received my order for the MUFE HD powder (full-size.) All my samples were there. My point perk was there. My promo code sample bag was there. The MUFE HD powder box was there. I picked up the MUFE box and immediately could tell it was way too light - sure enough it was empty! My item was not included. I just called the Rouge line and explained to a staff member. She is re-sending the powder, which I appreciate! And I still have my travel size in my purse to use while I wait. But I made a suggestion; I asked if she could report to this to the company. As awful as it is to suggest, I don't see how you could pick up the powder box to add it to an order and not KNOW it was empty. Could someone be stealing products? I'm wondering if I sounded horrible for suggesting it. :-( Good old human error is certainly a possibility. But if there is a pattern of products not reaching customers from a specific warehouse or whatever, that is worth an investigation.
Hi I recently purchased champagne pop and it didn't catch my interest like I thought it would. I feel like its not much of a glow. I'm light/fair skin tone color. I'm looking for something that will make my face pop and people can see the glow from a distance away. I like the josie maren illuminating wand stick its creamy texture gives my dry skin such a nice glow, I just feel the brightness doesn't stand out as much, Can anyone suggest any nice popping highlighters for decent price either creamy texture form or liquid, or any powder that will stand out. Thanks
I know a lot of people use the MAC Mist/Spray thing when using loose or any type of glitter/shimmer eyeshadow so it help sticks and stays put all day. I think $26.00 for the MAC Fix Plus is expensive. Is there a cheaper way to do that? Like anyone have a DIY idea? If anyone uses other techniques that are cheaper, please let me know!
I'm new to liquid lipsticks, and have only swatched them on my hands. Brands and price don't matter, I would just like a few recommendations. I also have blue eyes and blonde hair, with very dry skin and lips.
With so many users looking for the right product to use on their fair/pale/alabaster skin, I thought it would be great to start a thread specifically for this. Some of the main questions I see have to do with the following: - Foundation/concealer shades - Contouring - Highlighting I'll be posting comparison reviews and photos of everything I can get my hands on with these categories, as well as any others that people would like to inquire about. If you'd like to give input as well, please list the following: - Skin IQ/MAC ID/describe skin tone and undertones - Skin type - Foundation matches (make it clear what is a perfect match if you have one, and what is slightly off) - (optional, but highly helpful) Photos of your skin with and without makeup, swatch comparisons, etc. Please ensure there is proper lighting, with little colour overcast (like fluorescent lighting). ME: Skin IQ: 1y02 (closest neutral "match") MAC: NC8-10 Skintone is very pale, neutral to cool toned, translucent, prone to burning and freckles. Some surface redness. Cannot tan whatsoever. Type: Currently normal/combo. Slightly sensitive. Prone to dryness/patches and oilier nose. Foundation Matches: - Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer sx01 (99% match; more neutral toned, which evens out my redness perfectly) - CoverFX Custom Drops N10 (same tone as KA SS) - Dolce & Gabbana 60 Classic (perfect match) - MUFE HD Foundation Y205 (ever so slightly too light, but looks super natural with contour or blended with a drop of coverfx n10) - Giorgio Armani Luminessence (slightly cooler toned, great match though) - NARS Chantilly Concealer - DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001 (slightly darker and too pink, but wearable, especially if wearing contour or bronzer) - KVD 42 Common recommendations that are too dark for me: Urban Decay Naked Foundation 0.5 (too dark for me, but would for for a tone darker than I) YSL (Touche Eclat concealer in 1.5 works though) GA Hourglass Tarte EL Too Faced Smashbox (fair is slightly too dark; would work for some a tone darker than I) Dior Foundations/serums (other than the one BB cream) Too light: MJ Genius Gel cream 010 Foundation comparison swatches in natural light: L-R: Spoiler (Highlight to read) NARS Chantilly Concealer MUFE Y205 D&G Classic 60 KA SSE sx01 GA Luminessence CoverfX Custom Drops N10 DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001 UD Naked 0.5 NARS Chantilly ConcealerMUFE Y205D&G Classic 60KA SSE sx01GA LuminessenceCoverfX Custom Drops N10DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001UD Naked 0.5 Contour: WIP Highlighting: WIP Let me know if you'd like any other categories, would like more info, or have any questions!
As a 3Y05, what color(s) should I get for bareMinerals' Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, Burberry's Fresh Glow B.B. Cream, Giorgio Armani's Luminessence CC Color Control Bright Moisturizer SPF 35, and Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage?
Hey! I purchased the Stila 'Eyes Are the Window Soul' pallete about a year ago and loved the color 'Individual'. I used it everyday until I dropped my pallete and broke the color just recently. I can't seem to find this color just sold alone (I think you can only purchase it in the pallete) and I don't need to repurchase the pallet because I only want 'Individual'. I was wondering if anyone knew of any dupes of this color or if you can purchase the color as a single. Thanks!
