betsybeanmd: I struggled so much with application of this foundation. Finally perfected with the beauty blender. Thank you so much!!
Rachel Anise: Happy to help! So glad you have the Mineral Veil...it fabulous! xoxo
gorgeous928: Ah you're awesome! I wasn't sure I would get a response. I'm using the Hourglass Mineral Veil so I was hoping that would be your answer lol. Thank you!
Rachel Anise: I typically use Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge and sometimes one pump of Hourglass Mineral Veil (if it is extra humid or sunny outside). Both create a slightly dewy, luminous finish that work well with the matte quality of the foundation!
gorgeous928: What kind of primer do you use with this? I have very oily skin and use the Becca Ever Matte primer but I'm afraid it might be overkill with this foundation.
Rachel Anise: Hello Marya,
Thanks so much! I always try to cover the details that I would want to know before buying a product ; ) I haven't found this foundation to cause any flashback whatsoever...it doesn't contain any SPF! Hope that helps...xoxo
Marya: I love your blog and recently began loving your videos too! I appreciate how thorough you are. I was wondering if this foundation flashes back in photos? Thanks!
Rachel Anise: Completely understand and yes, I do like using this formula with the Hourglass Ambient Powders (I have Dim and Diffused). However, to be fair, this foundation stays matte for quite a few hours before requiring a powder touch up! Thanks for your words about my blog...I love to swatch more than any human should ; ) xoxo
shuppet88: Haha yeah it's so tough making foundation choices XD Would you say this works well with the Hourglass ambient powders? I just got mine in Dim yesterday, and I had never tried Hourglass before so I figured it might work well with its own brand of powder. I am glad you have awesome swatches on your blog all the time.
Rachel Anise: Thank you so much for your comment and also for subscribing...welcome to my channel!! I don't envy your decision...finding the right foundation can be such a challenge. Unfortunately, I haven't tried the Givenchy Photo Perfexion (only the latest Matte formula, which wasn't my favorite) so I cannot weigh in on the differences between the two. The Hourglass is fabulous for medium coverage and a long lasting matte finish...also great for sensitive skin ; ) Hope that helps...xoxo
shuppet88: Great video...I'm also a new subscriber :) Ugh, I have to choose between getting this or Givenchy photo'perfexion during the Sephora f&f sale this fall. Do you have any experience with that foundation?
Rachel Anise: Of course! Thanks for your kind words about my swatches...I get ridiculously excited about swatches ; ) Yes, the Sephora swatches are not the most helpful...hopefully my true-to-life pics help to illuminate the actual shades! xoxo
xbluesky123: Thanks for your response! The swatches you provided on your blog is wonderful! This is indeed a great product, but I find that the color descriptions on Sephora.com can be a bit misleading when compared to other foundations. Because of this, it's a bit more of a challenge to find a suitable shade. I agree with you that light beige seems dark. I also find that nude is more of a medium shade rather than light. Weird!
Rachel Anise: Hello! I haven't found that to be the case, because light beige is surprisingly dark to me ; ) If you haven't seen them already, I have swatches of every shade, side by side in order of lightest to darkest on my blog...let me know what you think! xoxo and talk care!
xbluesky123: Hey Rachel, is it just me or does the shade nude seem darker than light beige when blended onto the skin? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
cartelt: It's my pleasure! I'm just starting out on my channel but will hopefully post a review once I get my hands on this foundation.
Rachel Anise: Hi Cartelt!
Thanks so much for subscribing! I am thrilled that you are enjoying my tutorial. This foundation is fantastic! xoxo
cartelt: I'm a new subscriber and I can't stop watching this awesome review! I'm lusting after this foundation :)
Lucia Terrones: Hi Rachel a new subscriber here! I just bought this foundation -after seeing Gossmakeupartist review- and I have a question, although it sounds a lil' silly but why in the package of that foundation, & the other one from Hourglasss too, says application with sponge not recommended? I mean the beauty blender it's a sponge & you had no problem with it right? Plus it looks amazing... There's any problem with sponges? =S Because I was planning to use it with my beauty blender too. Hugs from Spain!
Rachel Anise: Thanks for the comment...now I am curious which ex-student of mine you are! At any rate, the Internet has a wild way of creating connection, no? Thanks for your kind words...I hope your post-highschool life has been wonderful thus far. Warm regards!

Diedrich Roasters: Great Video you know your stuff betsybeanmd: I struggled so much with application of this foundation. Finally perfected with the beauty blender. Thank you so much!! TheSolitaryObserver: I have a big question. I know the warmest color temp is the closest to d65 white, but with my Samsung series 8 LED LCD tv if I set it to warm 2, then I have to reduce my contrast setting greatly to produce a nice color free grayscale. If I run the tv in a cooler temp, say "normal", then I am able to ramp the contrast up to 100 sithout any coloration of white. It is almost as if in Warm 2 red is overdriven and runs out first, in a cooler color temp that doesnt happen. So, to run a more accurate white....I must reduce contrast by around 25 percent, which sucks. I suppose the Samsung sets are inherintly blue looking, maybe this is why they so not allow you to chose a warm color temp in some of the brighter picture modes? If contrast must be greatly reduced in a more accurate white color temperature setting, would you recommend chosing a cooler temp so contrast can be retained? Curtis castillo: dude you i remember this vid i love it and sense your my friend im giving you a free faceshell MrandMissConverted: Thanks for the demo. Hearing about and seeing it are 2 very different things. Anne Shields: I swear mine moved by itself no one is allowed in my room and my elf sits by my old teddy and the bear was on the floor and the elf moved those things are evil Heath Marshall: This was an awesome seminar. Thank you for posting!
