Hi MUA friends! I’m hoping you all can weigh in with some expert advice. I’m having trouble with my foundation cracking, and I can’t seem to fix it. I read through old posts in this sub and it seems like the common culprits are either different bases or dry skin. I don’t believe either of those things are the issue for me.
Products: Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel moisturizer Tarte shape tape concealer in porcelain beige Colourpop no filter concealer in fair 02 L’Oréal true match liquid foundation in fair ivory (C 0.5) Urban Decay naked weightless foundation in 10NN
Routine: Use moisturizer virtually everyday, but I skip this occasionally. Tarte and colourpop concealers are used under eye and anywhere else I might need a little extra help evening out. The L’Oréal and Urban Decay foundations I switch back and forth between. Generally, I wear the L’Oréal on more low key days and the UD on longer days.
Other info: My skin is fairly balanced with minimal issues and honestly it tends to need minimal maintenance. It tends towards the dry side. My foundation needs are mainly to even out redness. I also generally need something that wears all day due to my work schedule. Both foundations crack around my nose, lips, and chin.
Bonus: If any very fair and cool-toned MUAs can recommend a good BB or CC cream with decent redness coverage that would be awesome. I don’t have a ton of experience with BB or CC creams and would like to find something easy to even out redness. The creams I have tried were typically dark or orangey on me.
