Currently searching for products to use on my birthday and I need advice on primers, longwearing foundations, concealers and powders with no flashback. So far I’m interested in trying Charlotte Tilbury’s most recent foundation and the pressed powder. Any luxury recommendations that are worth the splurge and hold up on combo/oily skin? I struggle with a lot of shine mainly between my brows and around my nose :)
List products that I could use
Hi everybody! I am very into makeup but when it comes to picking things for my specific face I have natural undertones (don’t know if that helps!) my skin is mostly clear except for some pores on my nose and chin. I only get oily in the creases of my nose. Other than that I don’t think there is anything else about my face that I can say if you have any questions about my face I can try my best to answer them! But if you could list products for me that I could possibly use that would be so helpful!!
With so many people moving into serums and acids just a reminder:
You should NOT mix these
VITAMIN C + AHAS/BHAS : Combining retinol with Vitamin C is a recipe for peeling, redness and irritation, in short, a total disaster for the health of your skin
RETINOIDS + AHAS/BHAS: damages skin moisture barrier and can cause irritation, redness, dry skin over time; use separately and sparingly
RETINOIDS + VITAMIN C: may cause over exfoliation, resulting in increased skin and sun sensitivity; separate into day/night routines
Benzoyl peroxide + vitamin C
OIL-BASED + WATER-BASED.
GLYCOLIC ACID + SALICYLIC ACID: too many acids can strip the skin and damage its ability to recover
NIACINAMIDE + VITAMIN C: use in careful moderation. Some studies show that They stabilize each other some shoe that mixing vitamin c can result in a niacin flush (red irritation to the skin).
-Retinols should mostly be used at night
- Vitamin C should mostly be used at night
-Wait 20 mins when layering multiple serums (if you find your skin can tolerate it in one setting)
-Don’t forger your SPF 30 during the day
-When introducing acids to your face “purging” is only normal to a certain extent
Hey y’all! I need a really good liquid liner that is easy to use. I have the Kat von D tattoo eye liner but I think they changed the formula cause it used to work great and now it rubs off in like 40 minutes. Any ideas???
So no matter what type of foundation, setting spray, and translucent powder I use my skin ALWAYS gets oily/shiny and caked in my pores. I have tried a TON of remedies and no success 😕 any advice or products? Thank you!

does anyone know of a good setting spray that’ll both keep my makeup in place all day and prevent it from looking crusty?? i’ve tried the nyx matte finish setting spray but it doesn’t work for me :( every time i hug my boyfriend or a friend, my makeup leaves a mark on their shirt...any suggestions on what i should try? thank you!
Any suggestions for setting powders? I currently use the airspun loose face powder in shade translucent and it gives me an ashy look. When I use it on my mother who is of darker complexion it works perfectly 😭 I get creases under my eyes as well.
I’m in the market for a new foundation!! I need something in the 15-40 dollar range, satin/dewy finish, with medium to full coverage. I use the Fit me! Dewy + smooth but it isn’t full coverage. Any suggestions?
Anyone know of a concealer that’s not drying but will cover dark circles? Dark circles are in my genes so mine are pretty dark, and I haven’t found one yet that I am completely happy with. Then there’s also the fact that my skin under my eyes is super dry and can get bumps/bubbles when I apply certain concealers. Thanks! #concealer #dryskin
Hi all! I have very oily skin & large pores, especially in the t-zone area, so I’m on a hunt for a mattifying foundation. I’ve tried the Lancôme Tein Tidole Ultra 24 & my t-zone was extra shiny 4hrs in. I’ve also tried the Maybelline Fit Me Poreless foundation, which worked well, but it was too heavy on my skin. Your help is very much appreciated! 🤗
What is a good moisturizer for oily skin? I typically don’t use moisturizer because my face is already oily but in the winter it does start to dry out a little bit and I use topical acne medication that sometimes dries it out as well.
I’m looking for a nice bronzer, high end or drugstore! I just tried the abh one and I really liked it but I haven’t worn makeup in a while so it’s gone really chalky and it doesn’t blend anymore :( help!!!
what have you used to clear up your acne? i’ve had acne since seventh grade and i’m now a freshman in college, and i feel like i’ve tried every possible product and/or prescription! i’m currently using rodan & fields spotless treatment but i’m not sure how well it’s working- any recommendations?
any recommendations for good all over the face concealers?? i use the elf lifting hd one in fair but it’s runs kinda dark so its too dark for me. i use concealer in the place of foundation bc i hate the way foundation looks on me. so any rec? (vegan please!!)
