@outofideas:  I’m in the us so I don’t know how much it would cost there, but my Armani foundation is AMAZING

Bourjois healthy mix foundation set with face of australia loose 

translucent powder. I live in aus & wear it every day in summer 

& it holds up really really well without looking heavy or too matte.

Its sold in some targets or priceline, stronlgy recommend this combo

Hmmm… I’ve never been to Australia, but I live in Florida?

I’m naturally oily to begin with, and humidity doesn’t help. So I like to start and finish things off with some Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray. That stuff is magical.

As far as foundation, I like the Nars matte formula, which also helps with the oil-control a little. I also like to top it off with some Mac Prep + Prime transparent finishing powder.

I live in NSW so its definately humid in Summer, I have tried multiple foundations over the years & honestly bourjois is the only one that actually stays on my face as long as I set it with powder because it is a semi-dewy finish which can come off looking slightly oily in the hot weather so definately powder it. I also wore this foundation when I went on holiday to Bali in 40degree crazy humidity & it did pretty well 🙂

lll also add that using a mattifying primer underneath helps aswell and I use a dense real techniques buffing brush to really work it in so it doesnt cake up and it gives the best effect on the skin

I used make up forever’s high def foundation for my wedding on a 100 degree day, and we were outside all day. Mostly in the sun. It held up beautifully!

@outofideas:  I agree with @rachelmichelle the UD De-Slick spray is awesome. I put a spritz on BEFORE makeup and one AFTER to set it. 

I use Bare Minerals powder foundation. You can adjust your coverage levels and it feels like nothing is on. There’s a matte and regular finish. I love it!
