    Does anyone else have this problem?
    Yes!
    I can't wear Mac foundations as they oxidise on me.
    Also Estée Lauder double wear light - I love the foundation but it too oxidises, but not as much as Mac.

    Armani and Chanel foundations don't generally oxidise on me. The colour the foundation goes on is what it stays.

    Thanks @Sonja I'll suss that out.
    NARS has some amazing night products. Their blush colours are amazing - although orgasm never looked good on me, it was still a unique colour when it was released.
    And I love NARS eye primer!

    Luuurve The Multiple.

    And I've found almost all Chanel foundations great, with the possible exception of a really matte/ full coverage one (can't remember the name).

    I recently bought the Estée Lauder double wear BB cream because it's easy and have found that to be quite user friendly!

    I find foundations oxidise on me. If you really really really love a foundation but it oxidises I have heard (beauty guru on youtube) you can huy the foundation at least 2-3 shades lighter - and it can match.

    Sometimes priming can help but there is nothing you can do but trial and error. Get you face done in store then walk around all day and check to see what happens. That way you are not throwing away money buying so many foundations.

    Can any of you lovely ladies recommend a good eyeliner that stays in place?
    I find pencil eyeliners tend to end up underneath my eye, but perhaps it's the cheap brands I've tried. I've been using a black liquid liner on the lid only, but I think it's a bit harsh on me as I'm quite pale and have blue eyes.
    Would love to hear your favourite brands :-)
    As a fairly basic make up user I'm finding this thread very educational!

    Have you tried setting the liquid liner with a powder eyeshadow?
    Otherwise, the Lancôme artliner 24H are great IMO. They take a minute to dry down but after that, perfect.
    Dior do another great eyeliner pen.
    I never have much luck with pencils. I find they are either dry and tug on the lid or are too creamy and glide on but then move and don't stay put!

    If you find black too harsh, especially during the day, try and grey, brown or even gold eyeliner can look amazing against blue eyes! Most brands will at least have a brown eyeliner, even if they don't have other colours.

    I recently got a Stila liquid liner from Mecca. They do heaps of colours, I got the brown as I also find the black a bit full on. It's quite easy to apply (and I'm a complete makeup newb) and it doesn't budge. Was $29 which isn't too bad.

    No it doesn't. It seems to give my hair body rather than thickness. I find hair thickening shampoos and conditioner make my hair really yucky so I avoid them.

    I have a good one that just isn't right for me. I'll find the brand and be back.

    I just want to say thank you to you ladies! I have been following this thread and decided to invest in a foundation brush. Oh my goodness!! I can't believe the difference it has made and how much better it is than sponge and fingers. I am now a convert and keenly reading along to see what other fantastic tips I can pick up from you makeup gurus 💕
