Can anyone recommend a good makeup foundation to use? I have severe hot flashes all the time, and my foundation just seems to melt, then cake onto my face and into my pores. It looks horrible! I've tried different types - L'Oreal, Lancôme, Chanel and others, and each does the same thing. I was thinking perhaps waterproof foundation might help, but I don't want to feel like I'm wearing a mask, either. It seems using a primer and/or BB cream made it worse....
This menopause stuff is for the birds!
That's what I feel like when I see myself with my melted makeup on
Has anyone else experienced this?
Face and Body Foundation by MAC is amazing. I live in an area where it can get to 120 degrees during the summer and I sweat like a sinner in church. It's an awesome foundation that can really hold it's own. It's for light to medium coverage, but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want full coverage with hot flashes/sweating anyway. The Synchronised Swimmers from the US Olympic team wore it and if their make up was still a 10 when they got out the water it's totally worth a try.
Note that the make up a pretty watery so I apply it with my fingers. It's really light and I forget that I have it on. I have sensitive skin and really dry skin so it's important I have something that's light and won't dry my face out.
