Re: Foundation Guide

When Ever You Apply any kind of The Make up on the Face Before That You Must Have to apply the Foundation base on the Face.You have to Choose the right foundation as per the Your Skin Tone.You Must have to always use the Branded Foundation.You also apply it in the Proper Manner Such as I apply it.Blend the cream foundation smoothly using a cosmetic sponge in long sweeping motions.When Every You Buy the Foundation first of all check the Shade of it on the Own Hand.It Gives the Idea of that it Match it With Your Face of not.

Re: Foundation Guide

Thanks internetchick for posting your foundation color, because i was having trouble finding different foundations that matched my color the only one that matches so far is the NC25 from MAC (and it can get expesive), now ill try to other brands that you put.
post #16 of 34

Hello all. I'm Joshica.This is my first post ever  I never used to wear makeup, at all, I never had to, but as I got older I developed dark spots around the mouth and eye area and I feel that I need to now b/c I do NOT like the look I have. I have no idea whether I'm warm, cool, what undertones I have. Is it OK to post a pic and ask you guys for help? I will post the most recent one, and please be gentle, b/c this is the pic that I looked at and almost cried b/c I realized how awful I look without makeup.  I wear lipstick, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush, but the whole foundation thing is new to me. I also tend to sweat on my forehead which runs most foundation and makes it look yucky. I am open to suggestions, comments, and help of any kind.

 

Me without makeup..YUK.jpg

Warm, cool, or neutral: neutral leaning warm, yellow-beige undertone.
2. Brand and shade of foundations:

I don't know which brand of makeup yet. I am currently looking in to MAC brands. Any suggestions would be helpful. Toggling between colors though b/c I have no idea what color. I'm thinking about the NC 45 or NW 40, but without samples I have no idea, and I refuse to pay that much money for a mistake.

 

3. Brand and shades of concealers:

Also looking into MAC concealers. Question here, should it be lighter than my shade or darker? I know the question sounds silly, but I really do not know.

 

4. Brand and shades of undereye concealers (if different):

 

5. Do you use primer? What brand?:

I am looking in to MAC's  Prep + Prime for this

 

Any help is greatly appreciated because the whole foundation/concealer/primer is new to me.

Women have different needs, at different ages. A woman of 25 will not need the same coverage as one that is 35 years of age or older. Foundation makeup comes in many forms, including age-defying and lighter coverage types. It is important to choose one that fits your needs.

post #23 of 34

1. Warm, cool, or neutral:

Neutral leaning cool, NW10 in MAC terms. Sensitive, normal-to-dry, clog prone skin with mild surface redness.

 

 

2. Brand and shade of foundations:

  • Bobbi Brown Skin in Alabaster
  • Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer in Alabaster Tint
  • Chanel Pro Lumiere in 0.5 Limpide (Euro)
  • Revlon Photo Ready #001 Ivory (too dark in Winter)
  • MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Light
  • MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in N3 (breaks me out, hate the coverage, no longer use)
  • Maybelline FIT Me 110

 

 

3. Brand and shades of concealers:

  • CoverFX CamoflaugeFX in X-Light
  • Hard Candy Glamouflage in Light
  • Laura Mercier Secret Camoflauge SC1
  • Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer in Light 0-1

 

 

4. Brand and shades of undereye concealers (if different):

  • YSL Touche Eclat No. 1
  • Revlon Age Defying Concealer Cream in Light
  • Neutogena 3-in-1 For Eyes in Light

 

 

5. Do you use primer? What brand?:

  • Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
  • Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch
  • Dr. Brandt's Pores No More pore refiner (just on inner cheeks & nose. Way too mattifying for me to use it anywhere else!)

hey everyone im new and i have a question. :) i love my foundation but the only think is that i have redness around my cheek bones how do i cover that up with out putting too much foundation? i kinda stop after awhile so it looks good but the redness bothers me.

post #26 of 34

You can use a corrector such as green to camouflage the redness. For example Maybelline Cover Corrector Green Stick. Just use the "green" concealer and blend it in before applying your foundation.

I've tried Cover Girl, Maybelline, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clarins, Prescriptives, Stila, Benefit, CLinique, Loreal,and MAC  foundations/tinted moisturizers../powders..and none worked for me except MAC! The colors are more suited for me (I'm med-dark olive tan with strong yellow undertones) and nothing polished my look like MAC...Lancome's duo powder/foundation in Matt Nu (which is now discontinued) and Matte Amande came close but nothing like MAC...The studio fix and select spf foundations in nc37 were a match for me.  Also used their full coverage foundation compacts in c35 and c40 but they are now discontinued. And their studio fix powder is also great but only by itself--too thick to wear with foundation..

As far as concealers, I've tried Physician's Formula, Max Factor, Loreal, Maybelline, Cover Girl, Estee Lauder, B-Vain, Lorac, and Paula Dorf, Prescriptives, Club Monaco....and the winner MAC! Lorac came close but MAC"S studio finish concealer pot in nc35 has more staying power and is less opaque than the Lorac although Lorac's was pretty good. And Estee Lauder's smoothing creme concealer in warm caramel (I think thats the shade) was also good but the color was not as good as a match as MAC.

Although thats not to say that I haven't lingered and tried all the major department store brands as swatches on my hand in the stores--I've swatched pretty much all--Dior, Chanel, lapraire, Shishedo ...all of which were horrible (colorwise) but I bought the drugstore brands because $7-10 for foundation is not  a big deal if you don't like it (but $40 + for something that wont look right is a major gamble).

Its very important to have a really good or close color match foundation and concealer-wise so thats why I love MAC although some products are superior to Mac in feel and texture and wearability but I can't use other than MAC for my coloring..Texturewise and performance wise I think its really good too--way better than most of the other brands.

I've never tried primer but am going to buy the prep-prime wrinkle filler from MAC and see how it works..

Just so everyone knows, I was so satisfied with MAC, I have been using it for almost 11 years now and although would love to try some of the new products that have come along (especially MUFE), I have no need because I can't possibly find a closer match than I already have!
