mineralize skinfinish natural


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.

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! ❤️

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter
I’ve been using this lotion for 15 years at the very least! Their lotion hydrates/moisturizes but also has just the right amount of oil to seal that moisture in. I like it for the face and body.

Claires/E.L.F Cream Eyeliner
I originally bought this liner from Claires and really loved the creamy, no-smudge formula. It turns out E.L.F sells the exact same liner (but for 2 dollars less!). I use this on my brows and my eyes almost every day.

Ruby Kisses Luxe Colour Shadow in Center of Attention
I love red eye makeup, and though it’s very hard to find, I just happened upon this one day. It is only a dollar and comes ready to be put in a customizable palette.

Boots No. 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion
This is my first step to makeup removal. I just rub it all over my face and it does a great job of lifting all of my makeup, making it extremely easy to rinse away with soap and water.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Deep Dark)
It is very hard for me (and other brown skinned people) to find a good powder that won’t make my face look chalky. I love it ‘cause the powder is so satiny and has a slight shimmer to it that gives my face a natural glow. Coverage is also buildable, which is a great plus!

anonymous asked:

what products would you recommend for beginners when buying high end products? sorry I'm sure you have answered this many times before..

Some high-end must haves for people who are just starting off with makeup:
• urban decay beauty balm
fits any skin type, very sheer to no coverage, and smooths out the skin
• makeup forever hd foundation
if you’re looking for a foundation that has more coverage. this has a huge shade selection too 
• nars radiant creamy concealer
great coverage, thick and creamy but lightweight at the same time.
• mac mineralize skinfinish natural
a natural looking powder that can also give a sheer coverage by itself
• hourglass ambient lighting blush
subtle and glowy but gives a natural flush of color to the cheeks
• becca pressed shimmering skin perfector
best highlighter ever in my opinion. gives a natural but AMAZING glow to your face
• anastasia brow wiz
easy to use, and has a fine tip so you have more precision
• urban decay primer potion
not too sticky or too dry, a great base for eyeshadows
• too faced chocolate bar palette
has the best combination of matte/shimmer/glitter and neutral/colorful eyeshadows. its great if you want to branch out with the eyeshadow shades you’re wearing
• kat von d tattoo liquid liner
lasts all day and the brush is so precise and thin so it’s easier to use
• ysl glossy stain
stays put for SO long, it’s a glossy finish so it’s harder to make mistakes (unlike super opaque matte liquid lipsticks). you don’t need a lip liner for this either but it gives your lips the prettiest look

My summer essentials!! There is nothing like the perfect summer glow, you can aquire a flawless glow with M.A.C’s Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and Iridescent Powder/Loose in Golden Bronze. Contour just under your cheek bone and your temples with Mineralize Skinfinish and accentuate your cheek bones by lightly dusting on the Iridescent Powder you can even highlight just under your brow line for some added contouring.

What mac products do you think are worth the splurge?

Personally I love their

  • Pro Longwear Concealer. Light weight, long lasting, great coverage, great for under eyes or blemishes.
  • Mineralized Skinfinish Powder. Very natural looking powder, never cakey.
  • Blushes! I love MAC blushes because they come in all shades and finishes. I’d recommend getting one or two every day blushes because you will definitely get your use out of them! My personal favs are Dainty (mineralized blush), Pink Swoon, Springsheen & Melba!
  • Neutral shadows. MAC makes the best transition/blending colors that are “boring” but you will get so much use out of them. Usually in palettes they don’t have many basic shades. I made a neutral palette with matte browns, taupes, beiges, etc. They also have great every day shades like Satin Taupe, Mulch, Bronze & Woodwinked.
  • Plushglasses. I love these because they are super smooth and not too sticky like the lipglasses. They are “plumping” so they make your lips look nice. Great basic colors to use every day.
  • Bold lipsticks. They have so many fun shades like Rebel, Impassioned, Diva, Heroine, Candy Yum Yum. I love MAC’s lipsticks they are usually super pigmented and long lasting. Getting one or two every day shades are great as well!

yasminoymak  asked:

What would you consider to be Macs best products of all time?

Oooh tough question!

I’d say

  • Pro Long Wear Concealer (last all day, great coverage, not heavy)
  • Dainty or Warm Soul Mineralized Blushes (most universal flattering shades in my opinion)
  • Mineralized Skinfinish Natural 
  • Plushglass in Ample Pink (mauve shade, goes with everything)
  • Mineralized Skinfish in Lightscapade 
  • Pro Long Wear Lip Pencils
  • Pro Long Wear Waterproof Brow Set/Gel
  • 217 Blending Brush (most universal eyeshadow brush)
  • Any Lipstick (shade really depends on your skin tone and preferences)
  • Eyeshadows in Mulch, Satin Taupe, Woodwinked, Charcoal Brown, Swiss Chocolate, Soft Brown, Nylon or Pigments in Melon and Tan

I’d say if you’re thinking about buying some MAC makeup get an eyeshadow, a lipstick, a blush and one or two skin products like a concealer or highlighter to start out with! Most MAC products won’t let you down, they are all pretty reliable! 

positivityandfruit  asked:

Hey :) What are some good high end products i should invest in and last quite a long time? thank you :) xx

Hi! :)

Personally I think you should save on eyeliners, mascaras, lip gloss, lipstick and spend a little more on base products like foundation, powder, primer and skin care. If your skin looks good anything else will look pretty good!

A few products I think you should invest in are

An every day blush. The drugstore blush department is really slacking to me so I would suggest getting one or two blushes from MAC or Sephora that you can use every day like a light pink or coral because blushes will last you years! I have some MAC blushes I use nearly every day for the last two years and they’re still going strong. 

A long wearing foundation. Try spending a little more on foundations for days when you need to look nice all day long. You probably won’t use this foundation for an every day use and thats why it’ll last you for a long time. Use it on days when youre going on an adventure and will be out all day, for a long day of classes, a special event. Just something where you don’t want to have to worry about your makeup. I’d suggest Estee Lauder Double Wear cause the staying power is insane and a little goes a long way!

A matte bronzer. Bronzers will generally last a long time because they come with so much product. The drugstore doesn’t have as large as a selection of matte bronzers like Sephora so this is why I suggest spending a little more on one. Matte bronzers are great for contouring, all over bronzing and even using an eyeshadow for blending out shadow. Matte bronzers are great for all seasons and all skin types. 

A flat top foundation brush. Brushes generally last years if you take proper care of them and typically you’d apply foundation every day so investing in a brush so your foundation will look flawless is a good idea! Try a brush like the Sigma F80, great for all types of foundation and for all skin types. 

Some other products I think are generally worth the price because they are fabulous are

  • Benefit Hoola Bronzer
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
  • MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural (setting powder)
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Smooth Operator Translucent Powder (makes your makeup last forever and look flawless)
  • Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer (great for all skin types)

wildfaze  asked:

I love your blog so much!<3 What setting powder(s) would you recommend? xoxoox

There are 3 main types of finishing powders/setting powders that you can use over foundation 

  • Translucent Powder. Translucent powders are white powders that go on clear and provide no extra coverage. They are great for those who want their foundation to look “invisible” and natural because powder can often look cakey and look like youre wearing makeup. They still set your foundation so it lasts all day and is super finely milled so it blurs out imperfections and makes you look more flawless.
  • Light Coverage/“Natural” Looking Powders. These sort of powders give a very light coverage and feel light on the skin. Good for those who still want a little extra coverage.
  • Full Coverage Powders. These powders are often powder foundations used over liquid foundation. This gives super full coverage. Not really recommend because it can clog pores but if you have pretty problematic skin I get sometimes super full coverage is needed.

Translucent powders I recommend are Makeup Forever HD Powder, ELF HD Powder, NYX Studio Finishing Powder, Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (great for oily skin) and Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder (not completely white so good for those with darker skin).

Light coverage powders I recommend are Maybelline Fit Me Powder, MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural, Rimmel Stay Matte and Urban Decay Naked Powder.

Full coverage powders I recommend are Loreal True Match Powder, Benefit Hello Flawless, MAC Studio Fix Powder, Milani Multitasker Powder and Makeup Forever Duo Matte Powder.

Hope you find a powder that works best for your skin needs :)

So I got a 50$ sephora and Mac gift Card for Christmas.... What are some good products to get at Mac! I've never really been there.

From MAC i’d recommend

  • Mineralized Skinfinish Natural Powder because it’s such a light weight, natural looking powder but still gives good coverage. 
  • Any lipstick or blush really, it all depends on your skin tone but i’d get one blush you can wear every day! My personal fav is Dainty (mineralized warm pink blush) because it will work on so many skin tones yet it’s still a natural looking, every day blush. 
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, great for spots or under the eyes. Great coverage but still feels light weight and not heavy/cakey.

From Sephora i’d recommend getting good face products like foundation, primer and powder. It all really depends on your skin type so you should def ask a Sephora employee for good foundation recommendations for your skin type. But i’ll tell you some of my favorite products :)

  • Benefit Hello Flawless Powder which is my favorite face powder because it has great coverage so it can be used as a powder foundation or use lightly to set foundation. Makes your skin look so nice and poreless! 
  • Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
  • Matte bronzers like Benefit Hoola Bronzer or Too Faced Chocolate Soliel Bronzer. Matte bronzers can be used for contouring or bronzing, great product to have!
  • Urban Decay Naked foundation


swagg-me-out-blog  asked:

what is your top 5 favorite MAC products ? love your blog btw ! :]

Thank you! :)

Lets see my top 5 MAC products hmm… i’d have to say

  • Mineralized blush in Dainty because it goes with any makeup look and never looks too overdone! A nice warm medium pink with a slight sheen.
  • Mineralized Skinfinish Natural as a setting powder because it never looks cakey and feels light weight.
  • Pro Longwear Concealer for under the eyes and blemishes for light weight, long wearing and full coverage.
  • Lipstick in Syrup, great every day medium pink shade. Moisturizing and goes with any look.
  • Prep + Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose to brighten and highlight the face.

Hey love! What are the best Foundations/Powders? that don't make you look powdery?

Hi :)

Try foundations like

  • Loreal Magic Lumi
  • Lancome Tient Miracle
  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin
  • Garnier BB Cream for Oily/Combination Skin (has medium to full coverage)
  • Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

Try powders like

  • MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural
  • Benefit Hello Flawless
  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Finishing Powder (either their loose or pressed version)
  • Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glow Powder or their Youthful Wear Boosting Spotless Powder
  • Maybelline Fit Me Powder

You might also want to try translucent powders! I love translucent powders because they set my foundation so it lasts all day but never looks cakey or heavy because it’s so finely milled and weightless. The only down side would be it provides no extra coverage since it is a clear/colorless powder. Try translucent powders like Makeup Forever HD Powder, NYX HD Powder, Laura Mericer Translucent Loose Setting Powder or NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder. 

kaileeesmith  asked:

What are some powders you recommend, mostly drugstore but some high end? I am desperate for new powder because I have Rimmel Stay Matte, Revlon Nearly Naked, neutrogena skin clearing mineral powder and MAC Studio Fix and I need just a good powder that won't cake up my foundation and looks natural

For a natural looking powder I really love Maybelline Fit Me powder & MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural. They arent too matte and don’t have too much coverage. The key to have natural looking foundation is trying not to be too matte and applying too much powder. Skin naturally has a slight sheen and isnt super matte/powdery so powder is usually what makes someone look cakey. 

Translucent powder is AWESOME when trying to not look cakey because it sets your foundation so it lasts all day, blurs imperfections and pores yet looks so natural because it goes on colorless.  Theyre often called finishing or setting powders because you can use them over regular face powder to make your face look extra airbrushed. You’ll never look cakey with translucent powder. However it can make your face look white in flash photography at night so I usually use it as an every day powder not a night out powder if I plan on being photographed. Laura Mercier makes a great slightly tinted translucent powder so it’s not too white. My other favorite translucent powders are ELF"s HD powder & Tarte’s Translucent powder :)
