I actually really like Pur Minerals mineral makeup for an everyday foundation.  It is super light and clean feeling and very gentle to your skin.  Just go to Ulta anad get them to color match you!  I also use the Pur minerals concealer for areas I need a little more coverage.

 

I used Estee Lauder Double Wear Light for my wedding day.  It’s heavier but photographs well.

 

ETA:  I have also used Bare Minerals, but I prefer Pur…..

I’m a vampire and I have to say that normally I hate powder foundation but Bare Minerals Matte powerd foundation makes me look flawwwwwless.   I discovered it a year ago and I’m never looking back.  I use Fairly Light in the summer because it has just a tiny bit of tint.  It’s good for neutral undertones.   I’m cool but it still works for me

I love my Garnais BB cream. It’s a tinted moisturizer, and the one for oily skin (I have combo/dry skin) has a beautiful matte finish that doesnt dry out my skin.

I don’t wear much on a daily basis as far as complexion (just a powder compact), but I will be using MUFE HD liquid foundation + hourglass primer for our wedding. I’m quite fair with lots of dark freckles/beauty marks and I didn’t want the foundation to look like I was trying to cover them up! MUFE is perfect and is definitely build-able. I wear their lightest shade #110. I’m pretty fair, but depending HOW fair you are they might not be light enough. But worth checking out!

Laululintu:  I like the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer if I go that route.  You can order it online at Sephora.  I still think Pur Minerals is the way to go.  I am fair.  I love it.  I get a prettier coverage than I did with Bare Minerals, and it is much less messy!  It feels amazing on my skin!

Laululintu:  I always recommend Laura Mercier. Do you have a Nordstrom or Sephora anywhere near you? It’s worth a trip to one of those stores.

I loooooove Bare Minerals! I’ve used it for years and it always makes my skin look perfect! I know they are coming out with a new liquid to powder foundation. I haven’t tried it yet but maybe that could work as well?

The ‘face and body’ formulas from Mac and MUFE are very liquid and light. Much lighter and liquider than other foundations i tried on. They are buildable so they can achieve a medium coverage by layering if needed. But on a daily basis one layer is enough for a light coverage. It feels like water on the face (it actually has much more water than others and the MUFE one is waterproof, by the way). I work as a makeup artist on beauty and special effects makeup 😉
