i have a problem with black heads and though i clean my face daily they don’t seem to go away… is there a special foundation i should use that won’t clog my pores? thanksJanuary 25, 2012 at 11:11 am #148400
Marlena, love this website! My question is: I am 56 years old, and have oily skin. Have used Clinique foundation for over 30 years and up til now was happy with it. Now it settles in the creases around my eyes, as does concealer despite the fact that I use a primer. I want a flawless look, smooth and natural looking but I am at a loss as to where to turn to. I live in Florida and I need something that will stand up to the humidity and heat. I could really use your help and advice. Thank you Marlena.January 25, 2012 at 11:13 am #148401

Ok. I have these brown spots on my face from having a baby, I’m using ColorStay combination/oily true beige. Its not covering the brown spots, should I use a concealer? And will it not look cakey… The spots are on the right side of my nose and right cheek… Thanks Marlena!!!January 25, 2012 at 12:03 pm #148409
I would like to know what foundation is best for combo/dry skin. My t-zone has always been oily, but now it is very oily after having a baby. The rest of my face is quite dry though. I used to use Revlon Colorstay but it made me break out and made my skin itch. I switched to Bare Minerals a few years ago and have been mostly using their matte foundation. However, I’ve noticed it making the dry spots stick out even worse lately, even with a primer underneath.
Thanks!January 25, 2012 at 9:59 pm #148495
I’m 34 and I’m starting to get lines under my eyes. I have to wear a concealer under them because they are so purple. Problem is, it settles into my lines and makes them look even more noticeable. Anyway to prevent this?January 29, 2012 at 3:59 pm #149087
This is fantastic MUGS! I am starting to go through these and get ready to submit your questions to Marlena. Thanks again for participating!January 31, 2012 at 3:19 pm #149247
My question is what is better to use to set my foundation?….should I use Loose setting power(Laura Mercier) or would pressed setting powder (Laura Mercier) work as well?? I am not a fan of loose powders they get all over the place for me. There is also finishing powder, what is the differance??
And do I set my foundation first and then go on with blush, bronzer and/or highlighter?? PLEASE
THANK YOU!February 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm #150022

I need a very pale foundation that is neither very yellow or very orange. My undertones are blue/pink. Any suggestions?February 6, 2012 at 11:39 am #150097
TINTED MOISTURIZER for combination skin that will stay on all day and not make me break out!
also, a review on the Urban Decay setting sprays and how well they actually set your foundation would be greatFebruary 11, 2012 at 11:44 am #151526
I’m new to the MUG site but so far I’m in love! Where to begin with my foundation issues…
I’ll start by mentioning that I’m 27 years old with combination skin. I’m pretty fair most of the year but manage to get a little tan during the summer. When it comes to foundations, I keep hitting dead ends. I typically have a few blemishes on a regular basis (nothing too major). I’ve tried so many foundations and EVERY SINGLE TIME…they turn yellow on my skin! I can put it on, and 5 minutes later the color transforms into yellow and I look like I have jaundis! I’ve finally found a concealer that has the right tone to it to avoid the yellowing under my eyes (Lancome Teint Miracle, shade 2) but it doesn’t provide enough coverage for the dark circles under my eyes. I’ve been using Alima mineral powder foundation in Cool 3 for several years now and the color is good but again, not enough coverage and it makes me look a little dry; not the flawless glow I’m aiming for. I want to try a liquid or mousse or cream or SOMETHING foundation that provides more coverage overall but it all turns yellow! What do I DO???? It seems like heavier foundations are only meant for people who can handle golden/yellow makeup on their skin. I obviously cannot. LOL I know without seeing people’s skin in person you can’t make the BEST recommendations but any advice in pointing me in the right direction of products to try would be helpful. Thank you!

I love the colorstay’s coverage and all but it did make me break out I have very oily, acneic skin and like a good amount of coverage but with something that won’t make me break out. I would also like to spend less than 25 dollars on this but a high and low end of products are always great Any advice would be great!

As a make up artist trying to achieve coverage for different skin tones and types how do you provide a variety of foundations to your clients ? for example a wedding party event . Are we supposed to bring every foundation color to accurately color match. what avenue should i take to get the right color matches as a make-up artist ? I got skill but i need to get started and look proffesional starting with foundation !
