I've recently discovered SHISEIDO - Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation SPF 30.  This has quickly become a favorite foundation, especially that I have textured skin. It doesn't sit on fine lines and leaves my skin looking like skin vs. a cakey mess.  I've actually tried a bunch of foundations since there were so many releases last month.  As soon as I found this, I was afraid to try anything else, lol.  It's like I found my foundation soulmate. Eyeshadow wise, LORAC is also one of my favorite brands, her eye shadows are so creamy and buttery (almost like ND palettes), although she doesn't really do a ton of releases--which I don't mind. It's like the friend you can count on when you're confused at the makeup counter. LOL. ABH eyeshadows are my favorite as well, and I reach for the neutrals everyday. Lipstickwise, I keep reaching for PMG mattes (long lasting and not drying) and surprisingly, SEPHORA COLLECTION - #LIPSTORIES, the formula isn't bad at all for $8!

@dreamer254  For me, the keys are a good brush and the patience needed to buff powder foundation until it’s well blended. A good brush can reduce your buffing time. I think you’d be better served by a denser foundation brush that can buff powders, like the Sephora 70 or 56, or maybe the 88; I’m not sure which of those would be best. I use a Koyudo Fu-Pa series powder foundation brush that’s very dense. Any dense kabuki style brush should work. I just looked up the elf brush you mentioned and I wonder if it’s dense enough. Hmm... I have an old elf kabuki brush that’s too fluffy/loosely packed for the way I apply powder foundation.  I sometimes use By Terry pressed tinted powder compacts to either set a liquid skin tint (tinted moisturizer) or de-shine my sunscreen. I dip my brush into my powder compact, tap off excess if needed, and buff it on my face in small circles, doing one area of my face at a time. I’ll spend up to 10 minutes buffing and building up coverage (if I want more coverage) on my whole face, so I can get a nice velvety airbrushed look vs an obvious powder-dusted look. But now that I have my Koyudo brush, I can knock this application out in about 5 minutes. I could do it faster, sure, but I’m a stickler for well blended powders—and I enjoy the feel of this brush on my skin, so I tend to keep buffing away. 🙂  How many times you need to dip back into your powder foundation depends on the foundation: is it marketed as sheer, medium, full, or buildable coverage? I like sheer coverage, so I usually don’t need to build up.

I’m currently using the Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation, and it’s lasted me about 9 months, so far, (I use it 5-6 days a week) and it’s still going strong. I use a moderate amount, and the coverage is great so not too much is needed. I like the applicator for this foundation as well. Lasts a really good amount of time. For a medium amount of coverage, the Even Better Clinique foundation works well and has also lasted a long time for me.

Hi, @skylarpaige !  You might want to try DR. JART+ - Cicapair ™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30This helps with redness and is a color corrector.  It should work for your sensitive skin.  My skin is moderately sensitive.  The product goes on green, but dries to a slight tint (I'm pasty white and only use it on my cheeks and chin.).  There's actually a whole line of Cicapair products, so if this one doesn't work,  then try one of the others.  It's gets high marks from individuals with redness and Rosacea.  I recommend getting a sample first if you can to be sure it works for you.

@theraven03 possibly the IT cosmetics CC Cream? It's definitely fuller coverage but also a little more "sticky". Hourglass also has a high coverage tinted moisturizer with Hyaluronic acid that may help with dry skin and Tart justreleased babbasu or whatever that actually wears pretty nicely- it came in my Play! box. Definitely see if you can get to a store and try some stuff if it's an option for you!In my experience, higher coverage always means stickier which is why I generally stick to lighter coverage formulas. But not all are crazy sticky or sit weird on the skin
