What's your suggestion for a water-based makeup that is easy to remove? I saw my derm. today and he recommended that I stick to that type of foundation. He feels it would be helpful, since I have a tendency to get clogged pores.

Thanks in advance.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.

cp, do you mean foundation? If so, how much coverage are you looking for?

Yes, I meant foundation. Right now, I care more about the foundation not clogging my pores than the level of coverage. Ideally, I'd like good coverage but since I had a problem with getting cysts (sorry if TMI - gross, I know) my derm recommended that I use a water-based, not oil based foundation that would be easily removed with soap and water at night.

I had been using a heavy coverage cream foundation (Armani) that made my skin look good, but ended up causing the problem - not worth it.

Thanks for responding.

Sure — I just wish TNP was around to give you a more professional answer.

I've been using a tinted sunscreen from Elta MD, plus a heavier concealer and powder around my nose where I have broken capillaries from years of sneezing from allergies. I like Dermablend for coverage. A lot of MUA where I am are recommending It Brand, but I don't find it really stays put for me.....although it may do so for you.

Thanks, C. I think I will try the approach of a tinted sunscreen and save concealer for the places I really need it. Has TNB flown the coop? I miss many of the older members! Glad you are still on board.

I think the last time she was here she mentioned some health issues. Also she went back to working in her former field which is demanding — she does a lot of grant request writing (I think), which is tough.

I always like to test makeup on the ground the first time. Make sure whatever you buy is returnable, and that if a MUA applies it for you, that s/he tells you how to get the same results at home. I have particular trouble with concealer staying put because the areas I need it most are not only oily, but also subject to unintended rubbing from my sneezes. I still use a discontinued Dermablend product because it's the only thing that's ever worked. (Powder helps a lot.)

I feel kind of silly saying all this because at the moment, I'm sitting here in the sweatshirt I slept in. But I try to clean up sometimes.....or at least keep my application skills sharp in case I need to (rare).

I always reccommend MAC Studio Fix - it's a potentially-heavy coverage powder foundation. The amount you use will determine level of coverage. It's like mineral make up but the powder is not loose (and messy) and you can really build the coverage (unlike w/ mineral).

You can return it if you don't like it.

Thanks, Spider. I'll look into that. I have to make sure the powder isn't an oily kind of powder, if that makes sense.

Claudine, one of the reasons I'm looking forward to retirement is not having to get dressed up every day. I am sick of corporate suits!

Rou likes MAC, too. I like their lipstick, but I don't know much about their other products.

Let me know how it works. I love that stuff and have been using it exclusively since around 1993 when it was first introduced here.

fyi - Most MAC products are oil free. They are marketed that way.

fyi - There are several different foundations. Studio Fix is the only one I'm familar with. I tried another MAC foundation once but didn't like it bc you have to use a separate powder to set it and I was already spoiled by Studio Fix which doesn't require a separate powder.

The derm did a number on my skin for several reasons, so I have to wait until I stop looking like a pizza to try Studio Fix, but I'm looking forward to it! When I tried to buy a mac foundation before the makeup artists couldn't decide what color I was. nc? nw? Weird.

I hope I can get the S. Fix in a color that looks normal on me.
