Q. Foundation Help
Hello ladies!      I am in desperate need of your help. I am on the hunt for a foundation (and/or concealer combo) that will not crease or break up on my face. Recently I've noticed that my old stand-by's tend to break up or crease heavily around my nose and eyes.       I've spent far more than I probably should have trying to find a combination of primers, foundations, powders etc to stop the issue. I've ensured that they're all match based (oil, water), tried some YouTube techniques, even bought new brushes because I thought my beauty blender wasn't hacking it anymore.      I'm fed up and swimming in a sea of foundations that don't seem to want to cooperate. Any ideas and suggestions would be great!     Thank You!

Q. Replacement for Dior Addict Lip Polish in Fresh Epert
A few years ago I bought my mother Dior Addict Lip Polish in Fresh Expert for Christmas and she loved it. She loved the color and the feel and everything about it. She asked me to get it again, but it appears to be discontinued. Is anyone familiar with this product and know of a good replacement product in a similar color? Thanks!

Q. Applying Foundation
Applying foundation is one makeup technique that could take a lifetime to perfect. But seriously, who has a lifetime? I've started this thread to see what everyone does to apply their foundation.   For me, personally, I usually just use my fingers. I've found that using my fingers warms up the product and makes it easier to blend over my face without having to use too much and ending up with a gunky and caked on look.    Post your technique and any tips you may have for applying your favorite foundation

Q. red lipstick always turns pink!
I really want to start wearing a red lip more often, but every time I try on a red lipstick it turns an awful hot pink color!

Q. Looking for foundations similar to Kat Von D's in L42 :)
Hey there! I currently am trying to find a new everyday foundation as my lovely KVD is quite heavy and my skin is starting to react to it, maybe because it's getting cold outside, I don't know.   I am pretty pale, like ghostly, more on the pink side. I'd really love to see swatches of Cover FX in N0 and in P10, MUFE HD and Water Blend in R210, and anything that could be like, REALLY pale and pinkier, next to KVD's foundation in L42 or MUFE Mat Velvet in #15. Actually, I'm not even sure if R210 is very pale, I only tried Y205 a whole day and I didn't feel like my usual self because it is yellow.   I really need a light coverage. I also still have my white mixer if I can't get my hand on something perfect, tho I'd prefer not having to use a lot. Thank you!

Q. need MAJOR help with concealer/powder!!! -__-'
Hi everyone! I usually just browse, but have never had many questions, until now, lol I have the urban decay primer potion in original hourglass veil mineral primer nars radiant creamy concealer and laura mercier translucent setting powder and the urban decay setting spray also as a reference i have attached a pic of my eye without anything and with. i have some very fine lines nothing too crazy, but lots of purple ( runs in family )  i am 30.   I have googled like crazy, browsed youtube, and no matter what I try, I CAN'T find a solution to this problem anywhere. I don't understand why, but no matter what this concealer cakes up on me HARDCORE. is it just not right for me??? is it the powder? i don't know what the issue is...sigh. I will be going to sephora this weekend to try to buy the right concealer but would like your opinions and advice. i don't want to keep having to go and exchanging all the time and the closest sephora to me is not that close lol so yeah, as soon as I put concealer and setting powder on, within a few minutes, the concealer breaks apart no matter/cracks/sets into fine lines.horribly. my other makeup is fine. as a reference if it helps in you helping me, my HG foundation that i love and my skin seems to love is the MUFE Ultra HD. i wear shade y225. i moisturize and prime, yada yada yada.  i don't think i am doing anything wrong.  The only thing I have read online that possibly makes sense is people with drier skin seem to not do well with the Nars concealer. my skin isn't particularly dry but it's definitely on the drier then oilier side. so maybe that is why...i really don't know. ugh i rambled on a lot, your turn now!

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!!

Q. Tips to stop foundation from drying out skin?
I have normal/combination skin with normal cheeks and nose, dry mouth and eye area, and an oily forehead. But whenever I wear foundation, it completely dries out my face (especially my cheeks, mouth area, and eye area) and makes it feel really tight. I make sure to layer my skincare and put on moisturizer underneath, but I still feel dry. So far I've tried the Smashbox bb cream, Smashbox bb water, Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, and the Custom Cover fx drops mixed with the Maybelline blur and smooth primer (which I wear under all my foundations). Does anyone have any good hydrating primers or makeup tricks that could help with this? Or do you have any suggestions on lightweight light-medium coverage foundations I could try (preferably $50 and under with a decent shade range; I have dark skin)?

Q. I need foundation help please!!
HI, I am going away next week and I am in search for a foundation that looks great in flash photography. I currently use Vitalumiere Aqua (Chanel) and I am quite happy with it but I look awful in pictures. I have very sensitive skin that tends to be on the dry side and I tend to break out with new products. I tried the new MUFE water blend foundation and it made my face greasy, and it made my face look very pale in flash photos.  I did love the feel of it. Can you recommend any products that are:   -lightweight -medium coverage -wont cause me to break out -looks great in flash photos.        Thank you so much!
