What are some good products to use in general makeup wise? I'm around nc45 and look for a new blush to try, ideas? Does the HD powder work good for darker tones? Does anybody know about a green tint primer or concealer that is really good? Thanks:)
MUFE's HD powder is just silica powder marked way up in price, nothing more. And you don't even get a full ounce of the stuff. Massive ripoff. ($32 USD for 0.3 oz of product = roughly $100/ounce!) If you're going to go that route (I think darker skins can use it; just be careful), get some from Coastal Scents or TKB trading; it's much cheaper and you get more for your money. (One ounce is under $5 either way.)
Blushes... I find darker skins can carry off brighter colours more easily. Something like MAC Frankly Scarlet or Illamasqua Excite (both powder blushes).
Green primers or concealers... Both MUFE and Smashbox have green primers; I don't know how well they work. NYX has green concealers in jar and wand form. Coastal Scents has a corrector concealer quad with a green shade.
Hey ! : ) We are the same Mac foundation shade. Yes, go for the HD(Silica) Powder make sure you apply with a nice big brush. My favorite blush shades in MAC are Sweet as Cocoa,Ambering Rose, Gingerly, and Gentle. In Nars I wear Taos, Oasis, Super orgasm,and Casino
The whole green concealer thing soo not a fan of. I just wear MakeUp forever concealer in 14
Hey Danie D! I wanted to try green cause I suffer from rosacea! Thank you will give it a try:)
