I recently started usung Makeup Foever HD and the HD setting powder! I LOVE it!! They also have a primer but I like the smashbox primer better!

Go to Sephora they will let you try little samples before buying! Makeup forever has a kit out that comes with foundation, powder and primer all together!

I was worried about it looking white on too but it does not at all!

i second the going to Sephora advice. The artists at the store can help by even giving you a free makeover, they’ll be able to suggest things for your skin type and specific ideas you can try on your own. Totally worth it.

@RobinL:  The powder looks great in real life, but pictures it looks terrible. Did you ever see that picture of Nicole Kidman, for example, with the white powder across her nose? Well, she used too much HD powder, and the light reflected off of it. I wouldn’t recommend it for weddings. The HD foundations are great though!

I used Smashbox 15 hour foundation and Tarte smooth operator finishing powder on my wedding day. It was sunny, 82 degrees, and humid, and my make-up lasted from 11am to midnight without a single touch-up. So much for fall weather! And no, the white setting powder did not make me this pale. I’m just a vampire by nature. LOL

I use makeup forever hd powder and apply that lightly with a brush instead of the spongey thing. It’s fantastic, but my only complaint is that it may cause break outs. I read that in the reviews before I bought thinking pffttt nothing breaks my skin out, but it did a little bit. Putting a toner on my face and washing my make up off at night stops that though. Also I recommend MAC’s fix+, I’m not sure if it works like this for everyone but it like glues my make up to my face without looking cakey.

I used Make Up Forever’s foundation! I love it! It looks so natural, even though it covers well and lasts all day!

Hear hear to Makeup Forever Hi- Def line. It’s French. Enough said!! But really, it’s fabulous. You want the primer, the foundation and the SUPER white looking, microfine powder, which doesn’t come out white, but softens everything to look perfect and flawless. One huge tip though: do not wear sunblock under your makeup! It can cause a whiteish cast on your face in flash photos!! I am a HUGE sunblock proponent, so this is major for me, a beauty blogger, to recommend this!! πŸ™‚ Good luck!! 

 

p.s. OH! And get yourself some makeup forever eye shadows. the colors are SO rich. I love Chanel shadows and actually prefer Makeup Forevers over Chanel, which is saying something!

I’m pretty sure that this is the exact same formula as the HD powder (in case anyone is looking to save money), but correct me if I’m wrong. I have both πŸ™‚

The powder is easiest to apply with a puff. Wipe off excess powder & only apply in places where concealer needs set & lightly on your t zone (for those worried about being too white).

ETA: Has anyone tried Revlon colorstay? I heard it’s a great alternative to the MUFE, but I haven’t tried it.
