Having trouble finding the perfect foundation

I love to wear makeup but my knowledge on the best products to buy is limited. The foundation I buy makes my skin look blotchy and it is noticeable. My concealer matches my foundation so it looks as though I am not applying anything at all. My cheeks are naturally red. My under eyes are always blue/green and nothing I buy seems to work when trying to cover it all up.

Any suggestions/recommendations??? 

Re: Having trouble finding the perfect foundation

Try using Stella Color Corrector primer. That will Correct all the problems that you stated, and then try a  Tinted foundation.


Reccomend list of foundation 

Loreal tinted foundation 

Loreal True Match Nude Hyaluronic serum.

Loreal Infallible 24 hour wear (foundation in a powder). I'm in my 40s and this is what I use🥰


Re: Having trouble finding the perfect foundation

Are you using primer, @emmybear04? What's your skin type?

Re: Having trouble finding the perfect foundation

I use Hydrate and Prime Primer by Revolution, I like it and I think it’s good but I guess I wouldn’t know what would really be best for my skin yet. 
I have sensitive skin and somewhat of a combination between oily and dry skin. It mainly depends on the weather; my T-zone gets extremely dry and cracked in winters, summers my face is pretty oily. But somedays my skin can be perfectly normal. 

Re: Having trouble finding the perfect foundation

My holy grail is the Estée Lauder Double Wear stay-in-place foundation! It has a nice matte finish and wears all day long. It’s light but has a decent amount of coverage. Every time I stray away from it I always end up coming back.
