    hey shirleen, i’m using shiseido’s foundation cake and occasionally BB cream.. i’m not sure why but my face seems to eat up makeup real quick. the makeup seems so “melt” or smthg. i do put primer before applying foundation.. should i change my foundation?

  2. Shirleen says:

    Hi Sheaux,

    Not too sure what you mean by eat up makeup but firstly do you have an oily skin? Or do you apply any loose powder after the foundation?

  3. sheaux says:

    yeah, i have oily skin esp around the t-zone.. i don’t apply loose powder either.

  4. Shirleen says:

    Hi Sheaux,

    It is advisable for you to apply loose powder to help seal up the foundation.

    To see if the loose powder really works for you, try this method : Over the weekend, with fresh applied foundation on your face, go to the cosmetic counter and apply the loose powder from the sampling using the loose powder brush. Why I prefer to use a brush instead of a pad as it will create a lighter and more natural look. After a few hours, see if your makeup really ‘melt’. If it doesn’t, then you can go ahead and purchase it.

    I personally like Chanel and Bare Escentuals (from Sephora) loose powder. :-)

    Hi Shirleen,

    I will be a bridesmaid soon (as in 4 days) and the make up will be done by the bridal. However, i just got a really bad inflammation/eczema due to a product trial. Can you recommend a good foundation/pre-make up products for me? Cos I think if I really have to cover up my skin with make up for 24 hours, I at least need to put proper protection before just so my skin won’t get worse and also I hope the “protection” can help cover the eczema.
    FYI, I got a very sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin. Please help me. Thanks so much.

    Another thing, can you give opinion on egyptian magic cream? It receives so many positive feedbacks but I really wanna know yours.

    Thank you.

    Hi Mia,

    Have you consulted a doctor? Or you may wanna get advice from pharmacist at either Watsons or Guardian. They probably will able to give you a proper advice for your bad inflammation/eczema.

    I reckon your bad inflammation/eczema is due to the irritant ingredients that contain in the trial product. Some irritant ingredients will tend to dry up your skin that eventually cause inflammation to the skin.

    You probably have to go gentle with your skin now. Use mild products such as Cetaphil for the next few days before your skin goes back to normal again. Do remember to provide sufficient moisture to your skin as when skin is dehydrated, all the problems will start to surface again.

    For a good foundation/makeup products that are specially for problem skin, I will recommend Jane Iredale. A mineral makeup brand that is highly recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin care professionals. Hard to find this brand in Singapore though. But I know there’s a place that carries this brand, it is at One Beauty Spa. Click the link for the locations :

    I’m not familiar with egyptian magic cream.

    Hi Shirleen,

    Thanks a lot for the reply. Ya, I just seen a doctor today cos the dermatologists were not available during weekend. She did recommend the same thing, and provided me with lots of anti-allergy tablets which I happily took in as the itch were unbearable.

    I will find the cetaphil tomorrow and hopefully will get to the Jane Iredale products too. Thanks so much :)

    Btw, you are very pretty and look so young. Thanks!

    Hi Mia,

    Thanks for your compliment, I’m flattered! ;-)

Got something to say? Go for it!
