Using the large backside of the wand, sweep foundation across your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then use the angled tip of the applicator - that has a slight dip in it to hold more product - to cover down the bridge of the nose and across the jawline. Blend well with fingers. Finish by using the pointy tip to spot conceal any trouble areas┬┐under the eyes, around the outside of the nose, on top of blemishes. Pat and blend well with fingers.

Tip: Due to the rich pigment level that enhances this flawless coverage makeup, shades may appear deeper when first applied. Once blended completely and allowed to dry, Beyond Perfecting Makeup will melt into your skin for a Beyond Perfected flawless look. A little goes a long way!

Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

I received this concealer/foundation in a sample size for free from another makeup store. To me, the sample size is about the size of a regular tube of concealer so I was happy getting it for free. I've tried it a couple a times and while its definitely not my go to, but it does work well. Most of the time I use it as a concealer after I have applied my foundation. I've used it as my foundation once or twice and the coverage was good, but I tend to become very oily all over my face with certain products, and this is one that made my face super oily/shiny. It works best as a concealer for me. I have super dark circles under my eyes and when used correctly (good moisturizer, primer and then concealer) it does cover my dark circles and stays put all day long.

      Too dry

      By Morg

      from Lafayette, La

      Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

      This foundation is not horrible, it does cover and conceal well, but I find it feels super dry throughout the day and looks a little flaky. It would probably work a lot better for people with oily skin, but I have drier skin. If you have dry skin, I wouldn't recommend.

      Application matters

      By Lyndsay H

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

      I love this stuff. It's a medium coverage but buildable. However if you use concealer it's no big deal you'll be covered. It's nice to my sensitive skin. Use a damp beauty blender otherwise you'll look like a cake. I also realized it oxidizes a little darker, at least on me. And I'm super fair so it's quite obvious. I suggest trying it in the store to match you best!

          Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

          Okay, first off--the lightest shade it's still dark on me. Additionally, it's not "full coverage" I'd say, light-medium, not medium to high like it claims. Lastly, it settled in my pores so badly as well as lines around my mouth :(
          I wanted to love this, but it didn't work for me. It's getting returned.

          Sticking with it

          By Rosalinda

          from Royal Oak

          Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

          I like it bc I can build it up to be medium to full coverage. At first application looked cakey to me (used primer & blurring brush) at first but switched to using a damp Blender with setting spray... the difference is AMAZING!!!
          It lot a star for me bc it's hard to get a lot of product out the bottle, wish it was in a squirt bottle but still a good product.

          Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

          I loved the color matching I received at my local Ulta for this foundation. He did a fantastic job on the color choice. I also love how this feels on my skin for as full coverage as it is, it feels very light on. That being said I feel its hard to blend.I use a brush and still have to use a dry beauty blender to smooth some spots. It's suppose to be for dry skin but it shows all my dry areas. I will finish the bottle because I love the color but for me I think I'd like a foundation thats not thick.

            Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

            I wanted something that would cover my adult acne and acne scars better than, and that would last longer than, my Clinique Superbalanced foundation (shade breeze). I also wanted something that would cover just as good as and last as long as my Estee Lauder Double Wear liquid foundation (shade cool bone). This is exactly pretty much what I wanted! It has medium to full, build-able coverage. I got this in shade breeze. It does oxidize a little, but once it does it matches me perfectly. I use the Clinique City Block SPF 25 primer, then I dot this all over my face with the applicator, then blend it in with the Wet N Wild flat top brush to spread it evenly, and then use a beauty blender to get rid of any brush streaks and give my skin a more airbrushed finish. It looks more natural that way vs. just using a brush or a beauty blender alone.
            Compared to the Clinique Superbalanced this:
            -Rubs off less
            -Lasts longer
            -More coverage
            -Better for oilier skin
            Compared to the Estee Lauder Double Wear this is:
            -Less matte
            -Better for drier skin
            -Rubs off more
            -Lasts almost as long
            -Easier to blend

              Hi so I just bought this and I think I got it in the wrong shade I got it in "ivory" but as I went to natural light it seemed off. I sometimes use the wet and wild foundation in "soft beige", tart clay concealer in "light medium honey", and Mac studio mix powder in "NC35"(just to give you some different shades, I use Mac in the NC35 everyday and it matches very well I also can be NC30 in their powder) I was wondering what shade you'd recommend off this info?
