Texture troubles! 😬
Hi everyone- I’ve having some issues with my face makeup looking cakey/textured when I’m in natural lighting- it looks fine when I’m in front of the mirror. I was excited to try the Elf luminous primer today thinking it would help smooth things over (and look glowy). But I’m not sure it really helped. I had not been using a primer before this since the Colourpop tinted moisturizer is water based more or less and I couldn’t find a water based smoothing primer. The texture was present when I wasn’t using a primer- it looked better when I used my hands to apply but I have been using a sponge more since I was worried using my hands would potentially cause acne.
Should I try:
Chemical exfoliation? (Any AHAs?)
A different primer? (Maybe the OG poreless putty?)
A different foundation? (I was hoping to make this tinted moisturizer work since I like lightweight, natural, and affordable products )
Maybe this is just how makeup up looks in natural light 🤣 Am I asking too much?
Let me know your tips for looking flawless! 💖 I appreciate it!
I’m having trouble getting the Dewey look. I’ve currently been using the LA colors truly matte foundation, I’ve tried the kat von d liquid to powder it’s just not enough coverage for me, and I tried the Huda foundation and hated it. I love the one I’m using now, I just wish I could find a more dewy foundation, or a powder or setting spray that’s gonna give me a dewy look. I bake under my eyes and apply powder all over my face, and use setting spray, it helps my makeup stay on all day and not fade. I’ve been getting the dewy look with my highlighter, but it doesn’t look natural, soooo any suggestions or tips??
