Help! My foundation is turning white around my eyes.

Recommended Posts

I've used the same foundation (Wei Mandarin Orange Even Skin Tone, which used to be called Wei To Go Ideal Skin Perfect Finish) for a long time. Sometimes I use the It Cosmetics concealer with it. I apply it with a beautyblender and set it with whatever loose powder I'm using at the time. I'm not doing anything different than I always have, but this has started happening out of nowhere.

When I first apply my makeup it looks perfectly normal, and then within a few hours all around my eye (basically follows my orbital bone) is like 5 shades lighter than the rest of my face. It looks ridiculous, and I can't seem to do anything to stop it. I'm using no new products. My skin appears and feels the same as it always has. I have no idea wtf is happening, and I get nothing when I've tried googling. 

The other night when I noticed it I tried layering more foundation over it, and that worked at first but then sure enough a few hours later, it happened again, and it looked even worse due to the extra layer of makeup. 

Has anyone experienced anything like this? I wear makeup almost every day and this is embarrassing. One of the things that popped into my head is that maybe my foundation is oxidizing everywhere but around my eyes for some reason? Please help!

Your skin is allergic, not suitable for this cosmetic

Umm. No.

Her skin is not allergic to the product.

Stop applying foundation under your eyes. Use a concealer instead.

The sudden change is due to changes in diet, age, season and the environment, which is unavoidable and is the natural course of things.

When one or more of these things happen, your skin's pH will change, in your case it has become more oily, thus it has begun oxidizing your make-up under your eyes after a few hours... No need to panic, as this happens to everyone, especially every seven years as this is when a persons' body goes through major changes in their skins' texture, pH balance, and hormone levels, to both men and women.

Hence people have to change up their make-up shades, textures, and formulations within their brand every few years or so. However you don't have to change up your make-up line or brand if you're still happy with it, that is up to you, as there are a lot of make-up brands out there.

 

I am going to take a wild guess and say that you're still moisturizing? If you are? Good. And keep powdering the way you've been powdering. As an addition, keep a blot powder with you and touch up throughout the day using a stippling motion.

Remember, foundation is for the face, concealers are for under the eyes. Yes you can mix a super tiny bit of foundation into your concealer, (1 part C :  0.1 part F)  any more than that and your formulation will turn grey on the skin. Again, too much product under the eyes will cause excess oiliness, and fine lines to show.

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
    • Hey, if you didn't back up your data, according to my experience and your information, I would like to suggest you use Android Data Recovery from Uneraser to assist you to recuperate your deleted photo recovery, which is very useful and practical. Hoping it will work for you and you could retrieve deleted photos from phone successfully.
    • When I buy or sell something online, I am always afraid to mess up something. I mean, that I'll fill in the wrong zip code and the package will be lost. That's why I use WorldPostalCode zip code finder all the time.
