Golds and bronzy colors are my favs when it comes to makeup. Basically if there is a gold or a bronze, I will buy it lol. These are some of my favorite eyeshadow/pigments/skinfinish.

Hey so..... I wanted to ask for recommendations for foundations that last because I'm a dancer and I'll be performing soon and from seeing bangtans makeup and stuff what would/ which foundation would you recommend? Also I really love you page because your recommendations are really good and you seem to have a good eye so 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

Hi, thanks for loving us 💕 We provided a list of foundations and powders below that we have found to be long-lasting, along with some that BTS have used. One thing to keep in mind is that priming / prepping your skin and setting your base makeup make a big difference regardless of the foundation.

  • Oily skin type usually has problems with foundation breaking down, so you also could use a mattifying primer underneath foundation to combat this. 
  • On the other hand, if you have drier skin you need to moisturize well and/or wear hydrating primer to prevent your foundation from cracking.
  • For more long-lasting finish, all skin types should set their base with powder and/or setting spray. 
  • For stage/dance makeup, make sure to avoid using thick moisturizers / skincare underneath the foundation, as that will make it slide around more when you sweat.


☀️ = matte finish ✨ = satin to radiant finish

✔️ = light coverage, medium at best ✔️✔️ = medium coverage, buildable ✔️✔️✔️= full coverage

💃🏼 = Bangtan used this!

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place ☀️☀️✔️✔️✔️ (foolproof for oily and super oily skin) 
  • MUFE Mat Velvet ☀️☀️✔️✔️✔️ (this one is water resistant)
  • MUFE Ultra HD ✨✔️✔️ (Admin A used this several times when she had to attend traditional weddings / ceremonies. It didn’t feel as heavy as ELDW, but quite long wearing. Admin T approves of this foundation as well!)
  • MAC Pro Longwear ☀️✔️✔️💃🏼  (also available in waterproof version. If you need extra coverage, you can opt for the Studio Fix Fluid)
  • MAC Studio Face and Body ✨✨✔️💃🏼 (if you need to cover your body parts. water resistant, sheer coverage, and rather dewy finish)
  • Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able ☀️✔️✔️✔️  (this is probably the most full coverage foundation on the market, and it’s good for stage makeup as well)
  • Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish ☀️✔️✔️ (it’s a stick foundation so it might not work well on drier skin)
  • Revlon Colorstay ☀️☀️✔️✔️✔️ (the dupe of ELDW. Admin A used to use this and it didn’t budge at all in humid climate)
  • Loreal Infallible Pro Matte ☀️✔️✔️ (also available in dewy finish ✨✨)
  • Sephora 10hr Wear Perfection ✨✔️ (for more natural looking foundation)


  • Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder (excellent oil control but it may leave white cast)
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (another inexpensive setting powder, good for oily skin)
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural 💃🏼
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder 💃🏼
  • Bareminerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder (provides ~luminous finish. there’s 2 version of this, use the regular ver instead of the spf ver to avoid flashback/white cast)

Setting Spray

  • MUFE Mist & Fix (really locks your makeup. doesn’t contain alcohol so it’s safe for people who have sensitive skin)
  • Urban Decay All-Nighter (Admin T’s favorite setting spray, helps makeup last all day and takes away the powdery finish)

good luck on your performance! ❤️

I picked out five of my favorite products that I’ve hit major pan on to share with you guys.

+ The first is my most used Urban Decay eyeshadow in “Sin”. I purchased the single shadow a while ago when I ran out of the one in my Naked palette. It’s such a beautiful highlight / all over the lid shade, it lights up your eyes and makes you look much more awake.

+ Next is my most used blush, MAC’s “Well Dressed”. I’ve always been a sucker for baby pink but this shade has to be one of my favorites. I find that “Well Dressed” looks super natural, which I love.

+ Next is another MAC product, their Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I love this powder because it sets make-up while giving a little extra coverage without being overly powdery.

+ The next product is the Victoria’s Secret Radiant Face Trio in “Head Turner” which has unfortunately been discontinued. Unlike most highlighters, this contains three different shades: a baby pink, light bronze, and light gold which combine to give off a beautiful warm glow.

+ Lastly is the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I’ve probably gone through at least five of these because they’re inexpensive and do a great job of setting and mattifying foundation.

Picked this blush up from MAC, it’s part of the Fantasy of Flowers collection. This is Petal Power and it is GORGEOUS! It is similar to Nars Orgasm but it’s not a dupe. I think I actually like it more! It’s got a golden shimmer to it. OBSESSED!! I’ll swatch it later for you guys.


Please excuse my excess selfies but THIS is a look. I was just messing around, watching tutorials on YouTube as usual and I stumbled upon one using this awesome eye base that I just happen to have and never used.
