Wooo welcome to the translucent powder world! lol

ELF’s Studio HD Powder is probably my favorite! It’s not the my favorite for oil control, but it makes your skin look a lot more flawless. 

NYX’s HD Powder is pretty much an exact dupe for MUFE’s HD Powder because they are both 100% silica!

If you want a translucent powder more for oil control try Neutrogena’s Shine Control Translucent Powder!

Do you know of any drugstore or high end companies that make ultra light concealers? I have pink undertones and hyper pigmentation in my cheeks so I'm looking for something to correct that, thanks so much!

Try NARS Creamy Concealer in the palest shade Chantilly (on far left). They also make this shade in their stick formula.

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Poreclain Bisque

NYX Concealer Wand in Porcelain

 

In that contouring photo you just reblogged - where can I find a creamy kind of bronzer like that? And a highlighter too. I'm so over powders

Most people just use a cream or liquid concealer/foundation to contour!

Cream bronzers are a little harder to come by but one of my favorites is Sonia Kashuk’s Undetectable Creme Bronzer sold at Target.

As for a cream/liquid highlight you can just use a concealer or foundation two to three shades lighter than your own skin tone.

Or try a “highlighting” product like MAC Prep & Prime Highlighting Pens. These are more light weight and don’t give much coverage which is great if you’re using it over foundation and you don’t need anymore coverage. A cheaper alternative would be Loreal Magic Lumi Pen Concealer or Maybelline Dream Lumi Pen Concealer.
