Skin concern

I was wondering if anyone had any tips for how to help with a skin problem. No matter what makeup product I put on my face it looks separated. It happens with powder, foundation, concealer etc. is there anything I can do to help fix this so I can wear makeup again?

Re: Skin concern

Try putting on your foundation without using a primer. Sometimes wearing to many layers of product can cause separation. Just use your sunscreen. Let it set 15 minutes then apply foundation. Once applied lightly bounce a dry make up sponge over your face. You can try a light application of setting spray once you have all of your makeup on.

Hi Laura!


Have you ever tried exfoliating or washing your skin with a cleanser before putting on makeup?

Re: Skin concern

@Laura002 @Which primer are you using? Have you tried switching those up - sometimes products just don’t play well together 

Re: Skin concern

I use the hourglass one. I’ve tried just putting powder on to try and help the shine on my forehead and it still looked separated.
