Spray Foundation Carmindy Uses...

topic posted Tue, April 3, 2007 - 4:30 PM by  ~Sasha~
Does anyone watch What Not To Wear? The makeup artist, Carmindy, on that show frequently uses a foundation that is in an aerosol spray can. Does anyone recognize the type of foundation that is? Who makes it?

This is one of those annoying little questions that has been bugging me for a while. I figured one of you Divas must recognize that item!! If you know, please tell!!

    i done know what specific type she uses, but i have seen aerosol foundation at walgreens.. i even used it for a while, until i accepted that i am way too white for that stuff (plus i didnt have sponges, spraying it on the face= dumb looking, ha)
    i think it might be sally hansen, but i am not sure. whatever brand i am thinking of also makes makeup for your legs (also an aerosol spray)

    so now, not only do i have to worry about my nails needing to be painted, hair being done (grays dyed away), makeup being flawless, italian-girl fuzz being removed... now makeup on the legs too??

    i'm shocked there isnt butt-crack body glitter out there yet.

    anyways, the can of the stuff she uses looks just like the cheapo brand i was talking about

    I bought MAC's and I love it. I'm actually saving it for the warmer weather when I don't need much coverage.

      Thanks for all the suggestions, but I was wondering if anyone recognized the actual CAN that she's used on the show. For some reason, the fact that a makeup artist uses it on TV makes me want to try it.

      I have used Lumene eyeshadows before and they're pretty good for drug store stuff. I found this brand at my local CVS store. I haven't tried their spray foundation yet. I'd really like to try and find the one that Carmindy uses. Hmmmmm..... I wonder if she has a website? I'll have to google her.

        I think it might be the MAC makeup. I thought it was a MAC product. Go to your local MAC counter and look at the can and see if it matches. I'm thinking that's what I saw.

              Sorry, I missed the link. I think that's it. $55/can. The link you provided has a color match tool. You state the brand and shade you're currently using and they map it to the proper shade of their foundation. I just gotta try this stuff! It claims to be waterproof too. Here's the order page:

                I've used the Salley Hansen stuff, and it's not bad. In fact, it comes second to my mineral make-up.

                  I love Carmindy!
                  I've always wondered what product she uses to lighten under the eyes. One show I saw she used a pink concealer under the eyes that looked so great.

                    I've been meaning to look up what spray foundation she uses also. It is a grey can.

                      Lumene stuff is great, love the Vitamin Coctail Serum it's doing wonders as my new night fix. I have never seen the makeup at CVS yet, however.

                        have you seen Carmindy's new book THE 5 MINUTE FACE? In the back of the book, it gives the names of things she uses. According to the book, She uses ERA Face Spray On Foundation by Classified Cosmetics. However, one time on What Not to Wear, she used the MAC spray on because I remember seeing the logo.

                          I have JUST NOW returned from the bookstore where I too saw that book and looked up the spray foundation for the express purpose of reporting back to this tribe and I got beat to the punch! haha

                          She also recommended the Sally Hanson version in the less expensive catagory...

                              I bought the Classified spray on foundation and primer with the hopes of finding something that will look good and last for my wedding.

                              I've been using it for a few days and I have to say, I don't like it any better than my Bare Minerals. In fact, I think BM wears longer. While the ERA is pretty water proof, it does start to look old towards the end of the day. I do like using the ERA as body makeup. I have a lot of scarring on my chest from acne and eczema and it covered that area up pretty well.

                              I've found the best solution to be spraying a little of the ERA into my palm and using the sponge to blend it into the places I need more coverage, around the eyes and nose. Then I use the BM on the rest of my face, as usual, with my blush and Mineral Veil. I get a nice natural matte finish that lasts pretty well.
