Ok Ladies, I’m in need of some beauty advice. ?Today’s topic, foundation.
I have a long history with foundation. ?I’ve tried many a brands, but nowadays there seems to be more and more cropping up. ?I thought I was happy with the foundation that I was wearing, but with the attention span that I have I thought I might try something new. ?I gave up my beloved Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse for the Almay Smart Shade. ?That didn’t work so well. ?I didn’t like the fact that it made my face feel sticky. From there I went to Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse. That’s ok, but it seems to slide off after a few hours and also my face has been feeling a might greasy by the end of the day. I don’t know if that is heat related or makeup, but today it didn’t break 70 degrees and I’m still a giant grease ball.
In the past I’ve tried Mary Kay Medium Coverage. I liked that, but I’m quite forgetful and often don’t realize I need more makeup until I’m out of it. So ordering was a bit of a problem. I also used Bare Minerals for a while (when you still had to order it over the internet) and I loved that. Then all of a sudden I started getting what looked like giant hives on my face. Burning itching welts. It may be that I was using a new moisturizer or it was the Mary Kay face cleaner I was using or something totally un makeup related, but I quit with everything for a while.
There have been a few other store brands in there, but I’ve lost track of what I’ve tried and not. But here is where I need your help. What is working for you guys? I have slightly oily skin with small breakouts here and there. I have a line across the middle of my forehead that any kind of makeup seems to wedge its way into and make it scream “LOOK! I’m getting OOOOOLD.” I’d like to cover that up a bit. I have dark circles under my eyes. Totally from not sleeping and that getting old thing. I also have a freckled face that I’d like the even the pigmentation of out a bit. Basically, I need a miracle. Help me.
