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!
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!
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
How to get a perfect glow makeup? What products do you need? Please lists me some products for this makeup look ( not that expensive ). I would like to try a new makeup look, i want to look tan and have this good highlight/glow.
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! I'm very fair with pink undertones and I'm tired of wasting money on reds that don't stay red. Any help from someone who may have the same problem would be very much appreciated
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!
So I want to buy a foundation as a gift for my mom who is in her late 50s. I know she used CHANEL #22 before but she wants to try something new. Her skin type is oily. Any suggestions? Because there's no CHANEL makeup here I don't know how to find foundations with similar color.
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!
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!!
Few days ago, I bought naked vault set But it's not the same thing I've thought about! It was in one box ... lol SO I want to get a refund but the product has been disappeared on website I don't know how to do this!! Is there anyone lives in NYC and wants to buy this naked pallets to me???
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)?
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!
I am currently in the process of switching foundations and have been trying out different shades in the Dior Forever Perfect line. 040 was too dark so I tried 035, but the undertones seem a bit too neutral (I have yellow undertones). What are the official undertones for 034 and 035,? I cant find them anywhere online.
Hi, I am 12. I always watch juicystar07 and allthatglitters21 on youtube. They have inspired me so much to make a beauty guru channel, but am I too young? I also watch addicted2toofaced, and she is pretty young. I dont know also how to ask my mom and how to tell my friends. Please give me some advice, it would be so helpful! Thanks!
I am getting good, but uneven, growth from using Latisse, but not much volume. The bad thing is my lashes are now growing crooked. Has anyone found a mascara that does a good job of adding the volume and straightening? I don't really need added length at this point.
