I won’t recommend mixing studio fix powder with moisturizer…! It seems like mixing flour and oil! Drugstore foundations have agents that are highly reflective and might make your coloring weird.  I won’t recommend using drugstore brand either. You could borrow a good foundation from a friend.

Your most inexpensive solution would be buying a less expensive product and asking a counter sales person to match your foundation and do your makeup. Just keep in mind while many counter assosiates are artists, most are hired and keep their job because of their ability to maintain sales and hit their targets. It will be a risk you will need to be willing to take!  you are already spending money for your engagement photos though!

good luck!

Sorry but I don’t have any ideas!  I don’t use drugstore makeup at all.  Hopefully someone else sees it though.

I LOVE the Bare Minerals products but I can only afford to buy them once in a while. If you have an Ulta or another big makeup store close, I would recommend PUR minerals. It is an alternative to Bare Minerals and it is AWESOME. You can get a starter set that comes with the Foundation/Powder, Blush, Bronzer, and a brush for like $40 bucks. It gives you an AWESOME glow and you really don’t feel like you’re wearing makeup at all. It covers up everything. Good Luck.

I love products from Laura Mercier & Bobbi Brown – stop by those counters and talk to the makeup artists & see what works best for you.  Good luck!!

P.S. I have always used Almay powder – have never liked any other powder from the department stores or drugstores!  I bet their liquid foundations are great as well!

I am a fan of MAC, they should have a tinted moisturizer that will work great.  Also, just FYI, mixing moisturizer with makeup will break down our makeup.

@scissors: Do you use the Makeup Forever foundation during the summer?  I’m trying to decide if I want to go to liquid foundation but I’m afraid that it will melt off my face with the humidity.

I do, and it stays matte all day. Love it.

 

I’ve always not gotten along with MAC makeup for some reason. I just end up looking like an oil slick by the end of the day, or it feels caked on. The MUFE is soooo light, for real. Use the Makeup Forever!
