hi guys! so i have combo skin, it's mostly dry/oily in the t zone. i use an oil cleanser and a great moisturizer but i was wondering what kind of primers and foundations i should lean toward? i don't like matte foundations on my skin they tend to look way too cake. i lean towards liquid foundations/dewy ones! thanks for all the help!!
I wear makeup pretty much everyday of the week but my eye makeup game is pretty weak. I havent worn false lashes in awhile (2 yrs~) i actually have a couple of unopened boxes of lashes and I actually tried them on but the ones I have are the full length/volume kind and they look ridiculous with the minimal eye makeup I'm usually in. Id appreciate any help for natural looking falsies that would go with an almost bare face. And Ive never had extensions and although they look super natural, I don't really know much about the maintenance..yay or nay? help!
I have been using the combination of Clinique's CC Cream and Tarte's Amazonian Clay Powder for about a year and a half now. One the biggest issues I have found with my face makeup is that one I get hot, or start to sweat, my face starts to itch HORRIBLY. I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience with either or both of these products? I am very happy with their performance otherwise and am looking to switch to something that wont itch to distraction every time I put it on. I live in Florida, so it is hot and humid more often than not.
I had been meaning to try the new Too Faced Born this Way Foundation but all the reviews I have read and seen on youtube are from people with dry skin and I have oily skin. What are your experiences with this foundation and oily skin?? Please let me know! I havent had a chance to stop by sephora for a sample but I will one of these days.
I have very long stick straight eyelashes that lose their curl immediately after I apply mascara after curling them. Also my eyes are so wide that I can't get all my lashes at once. Any recommendations for a good curler? Also my eyelashes are clear, so the mascara I use needs to be as light as possible.
Hi, I have been having a hard time finding a foundation and concealer that really fits me. I would like one that leaves my face matte but does not make face look "caked" or dry. I have also been having trouble with foundations leaving my face looking oily. Right now I use a smashbox primer, NARS powder foundation, and sephora concealer. I love my primer its great. I feel like my foundation, for as expensive as it is, could be A LOT better. It leaves my face looking a few shades lighter, it also is supposed to be 12 hour wear but after a few hours my face looks suuuppeerrrr oily. My concealer is okay, I bought it because I tried a sephora brand contouring stick and LOVED it so I figured why not?! right. So I guess I would just like suggestions of other brands maybe that are full coverage and actually mean FULL coverage without making me looked caked or oily. Also suggestions on how to apply the foundation would be great!! I just want to know what everyone else is using to look flawless!! haha
Hey there! I have fairly dry skin and I am in search of a primer and foundation that works well together. I currently use Urban Decay Naked Skin, and I am looking for something a little different, I would like a little more coverage but nothing that will make me look too cakey. I went to Sephora last night and got recommended the Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation, and the Too Faced Hangover X Primer and it just didn't work for me, I found them to be way too thick and not very complimenting on my dry skin. Another thing is I am very pale and have lots of freckles and sometimes get redness throughout the day. If anyone would be able to help me please any suggestions are appreciated.
So I'm a medium shade, kind of tan because I live in the tropics. I really want one of these bronzers but can't decide which one... I feel like the Dark Chocolate is dark enough but is it me or it's kind of orangey? but then the Chocolate is kind of light... Is it a build-able color? Can someone help me please? Xo,
How do you all blend your foundation into your lighter neck? Mine is MAC Pro Longwear in NW 20 and it's hard to cover the neck with because of its longwear consistency. I tried the shade lighter and looked like a ghost. But I don't love the foundation line- so 8th grade! I have a bronzer I brush onto my neck, but isn't pigmented enough to do the trick. What are your tricks, HG bronzers, etc for this prob?
I have fairly oily skin, I don't have much acne, my skin is fairly clear I just get a very oily face and find my face looking greasy after the day is over. I use the Urban Decay Naked Skinliquid foundation and find it very poor for my skin type. What would you recommend for my skin type?
Hello my Fellow Lipstick Addicts, I am on a never ending quest for the most Holy of Holys - the Precious of any Purse - THE REAL LONG LASTING LIPSTICK (or Stain). So many claim to be long lasting but we know they are filled with lies. Piles of lip stains, balms, sticks, and pencils go unwanted after they have failed the Last test yet their makers continue to mislead us in a belief that their product will last long! For shame I say - for shame!!!! If YOU hold the Precious please share its gift with one such as I for I fear I have gone without for far too long. Please aid me in my quest and if you do hold the secret of the Precious than you shakllk be rewarded! (ok you will get a Thank You post but that is like a reward) -Lipsticky in Colorado
I was at Sephora yesterday and asked an SA if she’d heard when the Hourglass Holiday Ultimate Ambient Lighting Palette would be released. Unsurprisingly, she didn’t know a release month. She did inform me that Hourglass has mini pans in the works – like what the flagship store has to create your own palette. She didn’t know if it would be limited to the ambient lighting powders or if you could mix and match powder, blush, and bronzer. Has anyone else heard about this?
There are a lot of music festivals and things coming up where I will be outside a lot and I need a good foundation that won't melt off my face. I was recommended this in the matte liquid form when I went in to get matched for a new foundation. i have yet to try this where im outsidemost of the day so would this be a good foundation that will last all day and wont melt off my face? I also use a lotion with spf, veil mineral primer and urban decay all nighter setting spray.
Hey ladies - looking for some feedback. I am in Canada and pre-ordered these brushes, mine are set for the August 30 delivery. I'm considering cancelling the order though now that I've had some time to think about it. The one and only reason (but a compelling one lol) that I want these is because of the gorgeous handles. I have tons of quality brushes from Wayne Goss and the Chikuhodo GSN series, plus MAC and Sephora + Hakuhudo. As a matter of fact, I never once considered these to be brushes I would use, just keep as a collection item. From the reviews I've read the quality isn't as good as the GSN series or the Goss brushes. Also, and this is a big factor - I'm in Canada. With the horrid exchange rate now the total of these brushes came to almost $300!! I'm starting to think there are many other things I could buy - and actually USE for $300. Any thoughts? For my American friends that have these, if you had to pay $300 for them, would you still think they were worth it? Esp. if you already have tons of better quality brushes? Thanks!!
I am considering shelling out the dough for this foundation. I tried it in the store and got a nice color match and the light coverage I was looking for. However, I would love to hear what anyone has to say about it - pro or con - because as we all know, foundation is tricky and I would be very reluctant to use, then return, something so expensive.
I don't know about you ladies, but I rarely wear makeup on dates. Maybe just mascara (Guerlain Maxi Lash sample). I don't want foundation or lipstick rubbing off... or heck, even sweating off sometimes. What would you guys wear for a date? My dates are usually brunch, movie and dinner. (If you're wondering what I do instead, I usually get a sheet mask and prep my skin the day before or day of.)
Hello, so I'm looking for the perfect foundation for my skin. I have a very oily tzone with some dry spots (which is why I gave up on nars illuminous foundation cus it would stick to my dry spots really bad) and I also would love a foundation with as much coverage as possible as well as a foundation that stays on for hours. Nothing over $50 cus Ima struggling college kid lol. I'm not a fan of mattifying foundations because for some reason they make skin look lifeless & dry. also my skin is a little sensitive & so I avoid any acne treating foundations cus they tend to contain chemicals that only cause me to break out even more
Particularly with powder highlighters? I'm wondering if I should try sephora's brand fan brush, but the reviews are a bit mixed, and someone said the brush fell apart and lost it's shape after washing. I'm open to all answers and suggestion. (if you use liquid highlighter, feel free to share your favorite method for applying as well)
