I am 52 and getting conflicting advice regarding what type of primer and foundation is best for my age? Any advice appreciated.

It actually all depends on what skin type you have and what you're looking for in a foundation/primer. Do you have oily, combination, dry or sensitive skin? Do you want ... see post

Hi KrissyGrund, There isn't an exact match.  Deep Sand is a little darker and  Tan-Deep Sand is a little lighter.    see post

Splurge/Save for Wedding: Lipstick or mascara
Hello beauty community!!    So I'm getting married in June in Chicago (which can be hot or chilly-- you never know), and I'm 99% sure I'm doing my own makeup. I don't want to get lipstick and mascara that are both high end. What would you spend the extra bucks on: mascara (must be waterproof), or a lipstick that is long lasting? I rarely wear lipstick, but I've always thought that having a special lipstick for my wedding would create a sweet memory for when I wear it again, but I don't know...help!

Q. Foundation tips?
Recently I've noticed my foundation leaves an extreme patchy cakey finish on my face (not cute whatsoever). I feel like I've tried so many foundations & primers from Sephora and cannot find the perfect combination or foundation for that matter. The primer I've used is too faced hangover and smash box pore minimizer. I've tried bare minerals matte foundation, tarte Amazonian clay, lancome, too faced born this way. NOTHING WORKS!!! I even set my face with a translucent powder and use urban decay make up spray. I'm dry around the corners of my nose, but extremely oiley in my t-zone, especially around the corners of my mouth. If anybody can give me a recommendation on anything I'd really appreciate it!!

Applying process.
Morning ladies, yesterday I went to the mall to buy MAC oil-control lotion, nyx green primer(which reduces redness) and Urban Decay setting spray. I am very oily so I am trying to minimize/reduce the oil. Is there a certain way I am suppose to apply them. I apply the MAC oil-control lotion, my primer, then the nyx green primer. I am just so tired of buying different foundations because none seem to make a difference for me.

Difference b/w UD Naked Skin Weightless Ultra & MUFE Ultra HD Invisible Foundation
I have used the sample for the UD Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Foundation and liked it a lot better than the Too Faced one that everyone kept raving about.  The one I have not tried as a sample is the MUFE Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation.  My eye has been on the UD one because I have tried it and I am due for a new foundation. I currently use a Clinique one, but when my foundation is due to finish, I like to try new ones.  Can someone tell me what is the difference between the UD and the MUFE one?  The MUFE one seems to be ever so popular now.    I have combination skin, but my t-zone gets oily very fast.  The UD works very well…and I feel like it gives me a bit of a glow as well.    If anyone could give me some differences between the two that would be awesome!!!

Q. recommend palette to complement my current ones?
Hellooo! So currently this is my lineup:   - Naked 2 - Naked Smokey - Naked Basics 1 - bh 88 matte   I'm considering: - KVD Shade + Light - Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte - Too Faced Chocolate Bar - Open to other suggestions!   I'd looove to get all of them, but alas, I am poor and can only shell out for one.. so which do I get?!    CRITERIA: - Would like more reddish tones - Complements what I currently have (not too much overlap in colors) - I prefer mattes, but I don't mind a couple shimmers. - My skin tone is umm.. tan asian skin? (I'd say my skin shade is similar to Jamie Chung's.)   Would love to hear your guys' advice, thank you!!
