On a daily basis I use CoverGirl’s ultimate finish liquid powder.

For the wedding day I opted for professional makeup, so I’m not sure what type of foundation she used. It did look great though!

I’m 46. On a daily basis I use Cover Girl Aqua Smoothers, which is actually a tinted moisturizer. It is just enough coverage to even my face out, but isn’t cakey looking at all, and feels very light. Now if I am getting all decked out, and going out on the town I go with Sephora. I use the Sephora photo finish oil free primer first, then use the Sephora balancing liquid foundation, and top it with the sephora mineral powder. Thats what I used for my wedding and a few times since. It looked very good, but definately has a made up look to it, and doesn’t come off until you take it off.

@Sunfire:  I LOVE Ulta. Whenever I visit my sister we make a point of going to the Ulta store, together. We always laugh that we look like hookers, by the time we walk out. LOL.

I use Bare Minerals for daily but all advice is NOT to use it for the big day – the light reflection and “shimmer” don’t come out well in photography. Everyone says use very matte makeup for the day. I had a pro apply mine but elsewhere on the bee there are many reccos for MAC.

I’m over 50, and I use L’Oreal’s True Match.  I am a liquid foundation girl, and this is the best product I’ve ever used… and BONUS it is available at your local drugstore a lot cheaper than the more expensive (like half price or less) Designer Lines, but does the job just as well if not better.

Hope this helps,

I use Tarte Amazonian Clay Full coverage foundation.  My skin has done a total transformation since I switched to Tarte products 6 months ago & the 1.7 oz tube lasts forever!!

Tarte products don’t contain a bunch of the ‘gross stuff,’ found in most other cosmetic lines-no mineral oil, no parabens, no phthalates, formulated without sodium lauryl sulfate & cruelty fee.  You can try samples at Sephora & Ulta. I find the best prices at QVC.com, item #A216501. I set with Smashbox powder but will switch to a Tarte powder once I’m done using the Smashbox powder that I stocked up on before discovering Tarte Embarassed.  www.tartecosmetics.com

Amazonian Clay: nature’s most perfect ingredient providing total skin balance

 

 

mineral pigments: colors and dyes derived from natural minerals have been know to soothe and soften the skin

 

 

vitamin E: natural preservative that also acts as an anti-inflammatory emollient and protects against free radical damage

 

 

water: pure water delivers and retains moisture

I use Clinique’s tinted moisterizer. I like how light it is and it just smooths everything out.

Gabriel organics. I have to blend two shades on the back of my hand, though.
