Most people I know don't need to much coverage around their nose, just a bit of powder to cut down on the shine. You could try mixing the foundation with a bit of moisturiser. This will make it a bit sheerer, but will make it easier to blend to and it shouldn't dry to quickly. If this doesn't work you could try a face primer, I know some of the girls here use the Laura Mercier or NARS ones.

I used to get this on my chin and jaw back when I didn´t exfoliate. if exfoliating alone doesn´t work, try Microdermabrasion (this REALLY exfoliates. L´Oreal has a kit that isn´t all that expensive and works, although I have never tried more expensive versions. I still like the L´Oreal one)

OR: what has made my skin a lot more softer is applying Apple Cider Vinegar, for me this works even better than using a facial exfoliator. if you look throught the skincare forum you´re gonna find a couple of threads about ACV.

There have been a lot of samples of the L'oreal microdermabrasion kit in magazines in the UK lately so you could see if you can find a sample in a magazine so you can try before you buy because I think the kit is about £15.00 which is cheap as chips if it works, but an expensive mistake if it doesn't.

the neutrogena's micro kit works well, too, i've heard. it's $30 usually.

Yea, exfoliating is good. But you said you already do that so I would go with the moisturizer/foundation mix. Just make sure you mix well and hopefully that would make it a little easier to apply too.

Definitely try moisturizing, as I think may help with the problem!! I know Colorstay is a bit drier, and I can't imagine using it without a moisturizer.

is it because of your pores and sweating?

sometimes that happens to me because i get those sweat beads. lol

i'm not sure what to do besides trying those nose strippers.

Welcome Becky! I'm Janelle, from NY - nice to meet you!


What do you use to apply it?? If you use a sponge, you should try wetting it, then wringing it out - so it's damp. It usually will apply it a bit smoother. If you use a foundation brush, just stop at your cheekbones, and use the tip of the brush to blend in around your nose.

i have the same problem but now i exfoliate using a mild exfoliator, i also use the nose strips weekly as i have many pores and small blackheads that trap the grease and dirt, that dont help the foundation sit properly into the skin. i moisturise lightly on the nose and mix it onto my foundation. after doing this i find there is a big difference compared to what used to be my usual routine.

HI! I suggest moisturizing first and maybe applying a primer. The foundation may just be too dry for your skin.

I prefer to use my fingers because the warmth of your skin warms the foundation and with some types can make it easier to blend. I do sometimes use a brush for compact foundations as I think the sponges you get with the collect bacteria and I can never seem to get them clean enough.
I've used a brush when I've done other people's make-up and it's given flawless coverage, but has taken a lot of foundation to do it.

WHEN ALL ATTEMPTS HAVE FAILED. RETURN FOR REFUND. IT SEEMS AS IF YOU GAVE IT YOUR BEST SHOTS. YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO WORK THIS HARD FOR MAKE UP!
