"I really love this foundation! I have normal skin and I love that this dries down ALMOST completely and feel super lightweight on my skin. It won't cover really red acne or scabs that are healing but it does put a beautiful veil over those spots that make them look less noticeable. I love that my skin shows through and doesn't look like I am hiding anything but my redness goes away perfectly and my skin just looks great! Powders layer amazingly over the foundation and I don't set my cheeks before applying any of my powders. The blend is also amazing! I have used a brush and also my fingers and had great success with both! The only thing I would recommend is more product! I was bummed when I realized you don't get much. I like that product won't go to waste as much, but because I like it so much I feel like I will go through it pretty fast. Lastly, I am neutral-warm undertone (I am shade 190 in the Fenty foundation) and I find shade 3.5 to work great, doesn't look too "rosy" at all!" - luciafyall
"I love love love this formula. Finally, a foundation that's makes my skin look better without looking and feeling like I have anything on. I have mature skin, with slight under eyes, a little bit if redness, some hyper pigmentation and this just evens out my skin to be like magic. Usually, the foundation made my skin look aged and flat, but this makes my skin look radiant and glows and lifted... I get so many compliments on by skin. It really does feel like skincare with my color. And I love the tube, it's easy and light to travel with - enough with large glass bottles that are so inconvenient." - busybeauty71
"Beautiful Tinted Moisturizer Formula. Wears so well throughout the day with no powder needed (I’m a dry skin type). My skin looks and feels hydrated with a fresh luminous finish. I usually get settling around my smile lines from most foundations but this one doesn’t settle at all! Love the formula." - rxbby
How To Cover Dark Spots With Foundation
Using products like NudeStix's Nudies Tinted Cover Foundation are easy ways to camouflage dark spots, but there are other tips and tricks that will help take your makeup to the next level. Here's how the best makeup artists hide dark spots when using foundation:
Start With Primer
Regardless of your skin type or concerns, experts agree that starting with a moisturized and prepped complexion is key for flawless makeup application. Use your go-to primer and let it dry for about five minutes before you start adding foundation.
Swap Your Foundation Brush For A Tiny, Fluffy Brush
Everyone's foundation application preferences vary when it comes to using a brush, a makeup sponge, or their fingers, but most makeup pros recommend stick with a brush to apply your foundation. While it may seem like a no-brainer to use a foundation brush, makeup artists like Katie Jane Hughes and more use fluffy eyeshadow or highlighter brushes to cover imperfections because they offer more precision and control. Plus, they help create a natural-looking finish.
Apply Light Foundation Layers & Build Up
Always start small and work your way up when applying foundation, especially if you're trying to target a specific area. Start with a small amount and apply it to the areas that need it most, then blend it outward to keep your skin looking even and free of dark spots, blemishes, and more.
Finish With A Setting Powder
Using a setting powder will ensure that your foundation stays put and that your dark spots will stay hidden all day. Use a generous amount of powder and press it into the skin with a powder brush. Make sure to gently brush off any excess powder from your face to prevent any caking or creasing.
