i use clinque superfit makeup as a base, then matte it with MAC compac to obsorb the shine.

i’m looking for a good foundation too, they are hard to find

whatever you do, don’t buy Lancom’s mineral-liquid foundation – it makes your face oily and shiney looking!

I use Cover Girl Aquasmooth in Classic Ivory.  You have to blend it well, but it gives a nice finish–it’s the same formula used in SKII and very very pricey in Asia!

I don’t wear makeup (especially in AZ where I live — it’ll just sweat off), but managed to find one for our wedding day that matches my skin perfectly!! It’s Mary Kay, one of the Beiges.

I had my makeup done by a makeup artist so I don’t know what color she used but I do know she used Nars foundation

@BrownEyedGurl:  Shu Uemura yanked their products from US shelves in July.  Now you have to buy from them directly online.  It’s going to be a pain in the butt to color match now…  🙁

I’m not Asian but I know MAC foundation has yellow undertones. I have very pinkish-blue undertones in my skin and MAC gives me a lovely orange glow :p

@babyboo: This! MAC has a great line of foundation and colors that match. The HD high def makeup is heavy but good stuff for photos.

I like the shiseido line of makeup–it’s a japanese line so the colors seem to fit me better. They have different levels of coverage–I’m using their stick foundation for my wedding because it has more coverage.

cinema secrets! they have so many shades with different undertones, and a little goes a long way. a little tub lasts me a year and it only costs 13 bucks. doesnt break me out, covers everything, makes my skin look great.

its a “cinema secret” haha.

I like Shiseido as well. But I ended up using Makeup Forever HD foundation for my wedding.

Shiseido water foundation is awesome. So is Armani foundation for me.
