Need help finding a foundation shade and makeup brush
I have oily, acne prone skin that is super light. I have tried Bobbi Brown's foundation, Kat Von D, & Benefit foundations, all were in the lightest shade and still seemed too dark for my skin. I am looking for a full coverage, matte foundation that has enough shades that the lightest one would be able to work for a very fair person.  Does any one have any suggestions? Also what is a good foundation brush to use that packs a lot of coverage?

I'm trying to figure out if a facial primer is a necessity anymore?
I currently use the Body Shop's Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream. It does a great job controlling my oil throughout the day and making my face nice and matte before I put on my foundation. A couple of times I decided to skip the primer and just applied my foundation after moisturizing. Honestly the only thing I noticed was that my nose got really oily but the rest of my face was perfectly fine. Do you think I can do without? Or should I just apply primer to my nose only? Not sure which direction I should go.

Has anyone else tried the mac prep and prime highlighter?
I bought it yesterday and not sure I like it on my skin..  I bought the color light boost and it's yellow but idk.. I'm thinking of getting my money back. I used it to brighten up my eyes but it looks a bit ashy. I normally use mac prolong wear concealer in nw25 to cover dark circles, and  then I use maybelline fit me concealer in sand to brighten it up. I feel like this is a better method. I wanted to try something different so I bought the mac brightener but I'm not too crazy about it.

Drugstore Dupes For MAC
I was reading the newspaper last week when I saw the title How I Stopped the MAC Attack in the Everyday Cheapskate column by Mary Hunt. Ms. Hunt decided to part company with MAC and find drugstore substitutions that were not only cheaper but also of an equal or better quality than her MAC products.   I will put her list down below and her comments (MH) about the product.   Hope this is helpful!   MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation (C3) = Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup 250 (Medium Beige) MH: Full coverage, lightweight and just plain amazing   MAC Studio Fix Pressed Powder (C3) = Physicians Formula Magic Mosaic Pressed Powder MH: Light, glides on and doesn't get clumpy   MAC Pre + Prime Skin Primer = Monistat Chafing Gel MH: Yes it sounds crazy but it's outstanding and outperforms any primer she knows.   MAC Eyeliner Pencil = Prestige Waterproof Eyeliner MH: Smooth, glides on better and waterproof   MAC Studio Sculpt Lash Mascara = L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara   MAC Lipstick (Sequin) = L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche matte finish in 560 Saucy Mauve

Separating foundation on oily skin
I've used Lancomes 24hr foundation for a long time and it has worked out pretty well but sometimes it just doesn't. In the morning I use Benefits primer for oily skin and a silicone based primer from Sephora on certain acne spots and use my beauty blender to apply my foundation. It has worked all summer but never during school. Any suggestions? I used to use a brush to apply my make up or fingers but I tend to switch it up. I use Urban Decay's setting spray but they don't help much either. I'm also the lightest shade possible with a neutral tone.    help

Eye makeup for the over-60 crowd... Yes, we still wear makeup and we still care!
It's definitely time for me to tone down my eye makeup. The brown-black liner and clumpy mascara are just not doing it for me anymore. It looks messy and pitiful, which is not what I'm going for. I'm considering using only a medium tone eye shadow pencil or powder for liner, a complementary light matte shadow, and subtle mascara, i.e., not clumpy and harsh black. However, this approach leaves my eyes  looking a little bland. My eyes are my best feature, and I don't want to make them invisible. My hair is blonde, fair complexion, hazel eyes.   Best advice I have for eyes: use Latisse! It's magical. And it helps with the less-makeup-is-more look.   How do pro artists adjust eye makeup on mature women? Or do any of your customers have ideas?

NC25 matches what Hourglass Immaculate color?
Hi!  I tried an Hourglass sample but the Nude color was way too red for me.  Mac NC25 is my foundation color and for many years thats all I've ever used.  I liked the way Hourglass felt going on and it seemed a lot less cakey to me even though it was the wrong color.  What would be the best Hourglass match to NC25?  Thank you! Let me know if you think I'd like something else besides Hourglass.

BHow to get NARS Sheer Glow foundation to stay put?
I've tried it over a BB cream (Dr. Jart+ Dis-a-pore), over Clarins Instant Smooth, and over the new Smashbox pore-reducing primer, and it tends to travel all over my face after about 3-4 hours. Has anyone had good luck with a better primer (ie- does Hourglass primer help?)? I also tried adding Urban Decay All Nighter after my powder today, and I'm still touching up like crazy.    I'm not typically oily, so this is kind of a new experience. I wouldn't even try to make this work if I didn't like the color and initial finish so much. (But if anyone has a suggestion for a foundation with a similar finish but better staying power, I would happily take it.)

Professional Day-to-Day Foundation
Hi Everyone!   I wanted to post to look for some advice on foundation/powder for my day to day work wear. I work in a professional setting (attorney) and I don't like putting on my usual liquid foundation (NARS) everyday, especially as I am at the office for 10+ hours on some days. I have combo skin that is fairly sensitive. I want some coverage (but it doesn't have to be full as I will still wear my concealer where necessary).   I was thinking maybe a powder foundation, potentially Josie Maran?   Any help, tips, and/ or advice will be greatly appreciated.

I need a foundation that is REALLY waterproof.
I always laugh when I read these articles online that say "10 ways to waterproof your makeup" because they inevitably mention humidity and I just sit there and think "you don't even know humidity." I've tried 90% of these "tips" and they don't really help either.   I live in Louisiana where humidity is 100% most of the summer and temperatures exceed 100 degrees. For some reason, my face sweats horrendously bad. I was at the farmer's market this morning for about an hour and when I got back to my car, I felt like I had taken a nice oil shower because my face was so oily and sweaty.   Football season starts in two weeks which means I will be outside tailgating and in a stadium for about 10 hours a day in this disgusting weather and I need something that will withstand the heat/humidity/sweat.   My face is super oily. Like disgustingly oily right now. The only foundation that I have been able to find that keeps my face matte for more than three hours is Kat Von D and that foundation does NOT hold up to sweat. It breaks up and basically falls apart in no time.   So, my question is...any foundations that possibly WILL work for 10+ hours. I usually prefer full coverage, but I'm willing to sacrifice coverage for a foundation that doesn't have my face melting off.   I have tried: MAC Prolongwear, MAC Full Coverage (with powder), Kat Von D Lock-It, Smashbox BB Cream, Bare Minerals, various drugstore foundations...   I'm currently looking into: Hourglass Immaculate Powder, MAC Face & Body, MUF Mat Velvet, MUF Face and Body, Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation, Airbrush foundation, Stage Makeup...literally anything that will prevent a melt down. I'm down on my hands and knees begging somebody to help me (ok, not really, but I totally feel like I'm that desperate.)   Also, any tips/tricks for combatting a sweaty face. I use a primer, setting powder and setting spray. It helps a bit, but not much.

Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?
I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous.    I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost).    Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick.    I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?

BECCA shimmering skin perfector in champagne gold
I was looking on the Ulta website and saw a new BECCA pressed powder shimmering skin perfector in champagne gold. I wondered if anyone has seen swatches of this. I already have Moonstone, Opal and Rose Gold so the question is do I need it?? LOL...of course. But I was really wondering how different it is from Moonstone. I'm not sure how to link a picture but you can find it on Ulta or the BECCA website.

8% CASHBACK FROM SEPHORA FOR AUGUST 2014
I recently found a great coupon for 8% off SEPHORA through Ebates which you can use an unlimited amount of times for AUGUST 2014.  From my research, I learned that SEPHORA hired Ebates to stimulate sales during the recession by offering this coupon.  The way this works is that SEPHORA pays Ebates a commission every time you use them to buy something.  In return, SEPHORA pays you part of that commission (which is how you get the 8% off).  This stimulates business and everyone makes out!!!
