    Cover-up?

    Advertisements
    What type of cover-up do you use? Is there a certain way to pick one?

    I'm close to ULTA if that matters

    I'm a make-up newb.

    I tried a bunch until I found the one I like.

    I like Maybelline Dream Matte Mousee Foundation. It's best applied with a damp foam block.

    I really like the neutragena healthy skin foundation and the loreal visible lift (the one with the brush). As for concealer, we're stationed in UK right now so I'm using a collection 200 brand. I ordered the Loreal lumi concealer pen from Ulta online the other day and I'm really excited to try that. There's no certain way to pick it, (at least I don't think so lol) but I would consider what kind of coverage you want, what your skin type is, and if it matches your skin tone.

    This is what I use. Now, what I recommend may not work for everyone but I've had a good experience with this...

    L'Oreal Studio Effects Magic Perfecting Base
    Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Concealer
    Avon Mineral foundation or Maybelline Mineral Power powder foundation (both in your skin tone and the finishing veil [transluscent powder])

    I use them in that order. I've gotten several compliments on it as well. It sounds like a lot of product but in reality it's not SUPER full coverage. It all depends how you apply it.

    If you're a noob, you're also going to need a kabuki brush to apply the mineral powder. I use my finger to blend the liquid concealer.

    Almay Bright Eyes concealer (which works great on me, as I'm fair and get purple around my eyes)
    Physician's Formula Mineral Wear concealer stick
    Clinique Almost Make-up ( a tad heavier than I want so I wear a tiny amount)

    These all blend in really well with the bamboo foundation brush I use.

    I'm a super-newb. Like eyeliner and mascara only. But thanks for the suggestions

    I get dark circles under my eyes as well

    No problem. If you have anymore makeup questions give me a holler. I'm an addict.

    Oh also, just thought I'd add that I have fairly oily/sensitive skin & don't experience any problems with any of those.

    Lorea'l true match is good.
    Neutrogena healthy skin is good to.
    Also Bare minerals with primer works well to if you want powder that has light to buildable coverage
