Excuse my hand over half of my face. This is a picture of my face natural and then a picture with my makeup. I need tips and recommendations. I have big pores and redness. I want more of a full coverage look but I want it to look more smooth instead of so bumpy. Anyone have any recommendations on primers, foundations, or just anything that could take away the redness and make my pores look smaller?
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! #drugstore #texture
I have tried a million foundations and powders and this is by far THE BEST foundation ever!!!! I love a natural look and this was so smooth and flawless on my skin!!! I am obsessed!!! It is pricey, but I think it will last me a long time!!! I won’t switch to anything else ever again!!! 🥰
