futuremrs2020 :  I have slightly oily skin (if I don’t wear any makeup, by the end of the day my face would look a little oily but mostly only in summer). I use Tarte full coverage. I usually get it from Ulta.

I love Peter Thomas Roth skin to die for but it’s definitely more on the lightweight side. If I want more full, lasting coverage I use IT cosmetics your skin but better. I don’t use it but they do have an illuminating version of it if you lied that aspect of what you were using. I also saw someone mentioned Tarte and while I haven’t tried their full coverage I’ve tried their bb and cc creams and loved both of those as well!

I use IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream. It’s been my favorite for a few years, it gives me full coverage (when I apply it with a makeup sponge), and feels very lightweight on my face. Plus the lightest color is a perfect match for me, which is hard to find for me for some reason. I also don’t have to use much to get full coverage. And it has SPF 50. I have combination skin and it works well for that.

Coola. They primarily make sunscreens. I got a sample in a beauty box, either Birchbox or Allure and the shade was a perfect match, so I ordered the full size. It’s a BB cream, with a high percentage of organic ingredients, I just don’t recall exactly what percentage. 

I also like that it comes in glass bottles. We’re trying to eliminate plastics as much as possible. My preference is to not have make up sitting in plastic containers.

The finish is very nice on my ancient skin which is also sensitive in the extreme.

Sephora carries it.

I have a combination of oily and dry skin, which is annoying. Dior Forever is one of the few that doesn’t make me break out. Its about $60 though,

I use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup (I apply it with a makeup sponge). It works for me because I have slightly dry skin, but if you have oily skin, a powder foundation might be better for you.

I have normal to dry, blemish-prone skin and use Missha Perfect Cover BB cream to even out my color without having to use a lot of product. I apply it with a Beauty Blender sponge and it comes out very smooth and natural. I don’t usually use a primer underneath, but during particularly cold weather when my makeup is more likely to disappear, I use a water-based primer like Too Faced Hangover because the BB cream is water based.

I’ve been loving Milani Conceal & Perfect. It’s drug store, but it’s got great coverage and is long lasting. I have oily skin, and does a great job controlling that as well.

I’ve been using Pur Minerals for years. It’s a pressed powder foundation. I love it!!!
