      I didn't know I had dry skin until I used this. I was willing to splurge on a good foundation to get what I needed, and so an associate matched me with this foundation, but your skin apparently needs to be all perfect all the time. This is not for the occasional makeup wearer, because even with a good primer, this foundation started doing that lovely dry desert sort of crackling. Additionally, my tube cracked where the threads meet the rest of the tube within a few months. Fortunately, my store's manager was super nice and let me return the mostly full bottle for store credit, so I could get a foundation that suit me better and wouldn't break :/

            I really like the coverage of this product. I have Rosacea and was recommended the Tarte brand. It lasts all day, especially with a powder. The only thing is I need a shade or two darker than what I bought. They color matched my skin in the store but when I got home to apply all over my face, I looked a bit pale. Just have to add a little bronzer and blush to get some color back.

              Excellent make up – great coverage, maybe just a tiny bit dry but it depends on much moisturizer you put on underneath. I use a brush but you can also use fingers or a sponge with this and get a beautiful finish. Highly recommend if you like full coverage make up. I use several colors and make custom blend for myself, depending on event.

                  A:

                  For airbrushed applications, you can apply this foundation with the buffer airbrush finish foundation brush. The formula is full coverage & features skin-balancing Amazonian clay to absorb excess oil. If you want additional coverage and mattifying benefits, you can finish with a powder foundation. You can also try tarte's smooth operator Amazonian clay setting powder if you want that soft-focus look with no additional coverage. Hope that helps!

              • Q:

                I currently use Light Beige, however, I'm noticing my skin looks dull - almost a gray tone. I'm thinking it might be my undertones, so what would the equivalent of the Light Beige shade be in something with yellow undertones instead?

                  Thanks for reaching out Isabel! This foundation is hypoallergenic, vegan friendly and dermatologist tested. It offers great, full coverage so you can cover any imperfections without clogging pores. To reduce excess shine, you could pair it with one of our smooth operator Amazonian clay setting powders or the Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation if you want even more coverage.
