    I LOVE this powder foundation. It's so easy to use and you can build on it for coverage. If you have never tried a powder foundation you HAVE to try this. Just make sure your skin is super moisturized. Works best with nice hydrated skin.
    I have super sensitive skin as well and this doesn't irritate or break me out. I do use a setting spray. Fabulous product!!

It is hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested, so there is not much in there that will break you out. Even my clients with the most sensitive of skin can use our products and will not break out. I definitely recommend trying it. It is so easy to use and extremely light weight looking and feeling, you will love it. Enjoy!

                          The fair would work best for you. If you get much more color in the summer time, try the medium, but if you usually stay the same shade all year long, the fair should work perfectly. You can always warm it up by adding a pop of bronzer on the cheeks too. Enjoy!

                      • Q:

                        I am looking for a beach-friendly summer makeup option...I am naturally quite fair with some freckling. My usual foundation (which I LOVE for long wear and coverage) is Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra in 110 Ivoire (c)...but in the summer I do get some more color in my face. I like to minimize the freckles with spf, so although I DO get more neutral tones, I'm still pretty cool.
                        I'm looking to use this over a BB or tinted moisturizer/sunscreen.
                        Will the porcelain be too pasty white in the summer (as is the 110 Ivoire)? The Teint Idole 140 Ivoire (N) tends to be a bit yellow....as does Estée Lauder's Double Wear Light in 2.0.
                        Hoping to get some comparison. Thanks!

                          Yes! It sounds like the porcelain will be too light for you; especially if you get a little color in the summer. I would definitely recommend tha fair. I absolutely love pairing Balance-n-Brighten with a BB cream or tinted moisturizer- so you're going to love this combination! But go with the fair. Even though you're cooler, the fair contains up to 6 different shades so they work for all undertones. Enjoy!

                          Absolutely! I always recommend using your face lotion every day under your foundation. It will not make it look cakey or powdery. Another item that I recommend is an under makeup primer, such as Laura Geller Spackle. This will hold your makeup on and keep it looking fresh all day long, as well as creating a silky smooth surface so makeup will glide on smooth and easy. Spackle goes on after moisturizer and before the balance-n-brighten. Enjoy!

                          A:

                          Because this is a baked powder (it starts off as a cream and is baked on a terracotta tile), it is a powder that absolutely will not settle into lines! The terracotta also helps it retain moisture, so it's a powder that will actually add some hydration. Perfect for any age! Enjoy!

                          A:

                          This is the most fool proof foundation I have ever used- you will love it! The coverage is medium, however it is buildable so you can apply more layers to reach the coverage you desire. I recommend using a large fluffy brush, something like a kabuki brush, dip into the compact and swirl onto the skin. If you're not sure what shade you are, Medium is a great place to start. If you're lighter, choose fair. Because it has multi-pigmented swirls on color that will blend in seamlessly in with your skin tone, so it'll be very easy to color match. This foundation seems like it'll be perfect for you. Enjoy!

                        I have extremely fair skin with no yellow undertones. Many foundations look too warm or yellowish on me. How might the porcelain work for me? Also, my age is 47 and my skin can look dry with powder foundation, so I am wondering if it will work for mature skin. Thanks.

                          A:

                          The porcelain has definitely more of a cooler undertone, with more pinks and beiges. It is perfect for skintones in the range of Nicole Kidman. Since you mentioned you're extremely fair, the porcelain sounds like it'll be great for you. Our balance-n-brighten has more yellow swirled around, so I am afraid it might be a bit too warm for you. Try the porcelain! And don't worry about your age or skin type... because this is a baked powder (it starts it's life as a cream), its a powder that looks extremely weightless and natural and it won't dry out the skin or settle into lines! You will love it. Enjoy!

                        I'm using the medium shade but could also use the fair. I would prefer a brighter look for my under eye area. Could I use the porcelain shade for that or would that be to much of a contrast?

                          I would recommend switching from the medium to the fair. Because this product has multi-pigmented swirls of color, it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your skin tone and you'll never have that line of demarkation under your jawline. I am afraid the porcelain will be much to light for you... the fair should be perfect. I am more of a medium and I wear the fair because I love the brightening effect it delivers. Enjoy!

                        Because the product is a swirl of colors and not fully mixed, is there a concern that as I continue to use the product, it will reveal just just the white or a paler color?
                        Some have said the color changed as they got deeper into the product. Thank you in advance.

                          This is a completely logical concern, however I can tell you from 5 years experience using this product, the color will stay the same overall shade until the very end. Make sure that you swirl your brush throughout the entire compact so that the brissles look like the are picking up each shade. It also helps to use a somewhat lager powder brush, like a kabuki brush. Enjoy!
