YOUR SKIN TONE/COLORING: Under my name; cherry cola hair with a violet tint; hazel/green eyes.

GO-TO LONG-WEARING FOUNDATION? Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation


GO-TO SWEATPROOF MASCARA? I don’t worry about mascara being sweat proof. I’ve never had an issue with using regular mascaras when engaging in exercising or walking in the heat, etc.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral
Go-to long-wearing foundation? Typically cannot wear LW foundations, but if I want my usual base to last longer, I will add a touch of Fenty matte foundation.
Go-to setting powder? I do not use a lot of powder either, just a bit around nose and chin. Right now I am pushing through a few powders I have had on hand for awhile. The one I like..Kevyn Aucoin the gossamer in diaphanous. It’s an older version in black case and it’s a fantastic super duper finely milled light as air powder. I think comparable to Surratt matte version.. equally fine milled. Will not dry out your foundation. Imperceptible on skin.
Go-to sweatproof mascara? I do not do waterproof mascara. I find MAC Extended play gigabyte (regular) to work well for durability. For swimming or water or intense heat, I go without.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Go-to long-wearing foundation? Right now its Estée Lauder Double Wear.

Go-to setting powder? I don’t use setting powder very often, but I do like the No. 7 Lift and Illuminate setting powder.

Go-to sweatproof mascara? The GrandeLash mascara; that stuff can survive everything.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 20

Go-to long-wearing foundation? L’Oréal Freshwear, Revlon Colorstay, Chanel Le Teint Velvet, Fenty Pro F’lter Matte, MAC Studio Fix Fluid

Go-to setting powder? Laura Mercier Translucent, Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, No 7 Lift & Illuminate Pressed Powder

Go-to sweatproof mascara. Any mascara. I don’t have issues with flaking, meting. transferring etc I’m using Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes and L’Oréal Voluminous right now

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Go-to long-wearing foundation? Diorskin Forever or (odd as it sounds) Australian Gold tinted facial sunscreen
Go-to setting powder? Hourglass Mineral Veil or MAC Prep+Prime loose
Go-to sweatproof mascara? I rarely wear mascara

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair)

Go-to long-wearing foundation? MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Foundation in NW35 or NC41 for summer. NW30-35 in cooler months.

Go-to setting powder? RMCA No Color Powder for under eyes and around areas that are oilier. Hourglass Dim Light everywhere else.

Go-to sweatproof mascara? L’Oreal Lash Paradise Blackest Black in the Waterproof formula.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Go-to long-wearing foundation? L’Oreal True Match foundation – and it lasts longer when I use the Nude by Nature Airbrush primer underneath it.

Go-to setting powder? Rimmel’s Translucent setting powder

Go-to sweatproof mascara? I don’t have a dedicated ‘sweatproof’ mascara, but find a Rimmel’s one pretty good.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool skin (foundation matches: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Light EF 02, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands. My everyday base products are Fenty-Amber Match Stick as cheek contour and Pro Filt’r concealer and Soft Matte foundation in 110.
Go-to long-wearing foundation?My Fenty 110 mentioned above.
Go-to setting powder? CoverGirl Clean Creamy Natural pressed powder. I only use powder to set the occasional stubborn zit that needs more work than usual, so I don’t bother to use any powder more expensive than the CG.
Go-to sweatproof mascara? I don’t sweat all that much, and when I do it rarely affects my eye makeup.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium, warm yellow undertones, dark brown hair and eyes

Go-to long-wearing foundation? Estee Lauder Double Wear or MAC Prolongwear Waterproof (they’re the same for me)

Go-to setting powder? MAC Blotting Powder

Go-to sweatproof mascara? Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash

Your skin tone/colouring: under my name: very fair with a yellow undertone and redness
Go-to long-wearing foundation? FYI I’m cruelty free with my makeup. For longevity I go for either the Too Faced peach foundation as I 100% agree with their claim of being transfer proof (it’s insane) or the Smashbox studio skin which wears so well on me – it’s my good old faithful.
Go-to setting powder? I don’t use powder much these days as it never seems to add anything to my skin but like others here, I very much like the No7 lift and illuminate powder. I really want to try the Kosas cloud powder as Jamie Page raves about it! Has anyone tried it?
Go-to sweatproof mascara? This is a big one for me as unless I’ve got a heavy eye look going, I have to use transfer proof mascaras (deep set, very oily eyelids) and I switch between the Hourglass caution mascara or their unlocked tubing mascara, if I want a more everyday, natural look.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral

Go-to long-wearing foundation? Estée Lauder Double Wear (stays put all day and does not rub off on the mask!)

Go-to setting powder? I use either Laura Mercier Translucent or RCMA, but I don’t wear powder when I have to wear a mask, which is most days because masks are required at my job.

Go-to sweatproof mascara? I avoid situations that would cause me to sweat. So I just use regular mascara, usually a drugstore brand.

Your skin tone/coloring:
Light cool/neutral around Mac nw20/22
Go-to long-wearing foundation?I switch up a lot but right now it’s the shiseido synchro skin foundation
Go-to setting powder? MAC Mineralize skin finish natural
Go-to sweatproof mascara? Lancôme monsieur big waterproof.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium Tan or Tan olive
Go-to long-wearing foundation? Estee Lauder Double Wear in 4w2 alone or mixed with 5.W1.5
Go-to setting powder? Gosh Prime N Set Banana
Go-to sweatproof mascara? Guerlain Cils D’Enfer waterproof (yellow package)
