Your skin sounds easy to find good products for.

I say try mineral makeup good ones from drugstore are:

Maybelline mineral power line (i use and love the liquid but had the powder and know it is great)

Loreal’s mineral line is good too

Bare minerals  (i was allergic to it but the finish was beautiful) , Everyday mineral (only available online)  are just a few to mention

you can also try Revlon new photo-ready liquid make up and c how you like it

as for powder i love Palladio’s rice power (using it on my wedding day)

Primers Palladio makes one that is known to be the same as the much more expensive one from Smashbox (this line is only available at Sally Beauty Supply)

I am using the new Studio Secrets but l’oreal myself does a great job of priming the face for make up

you can also use a setting spray like Model in the Bottle  (online) to make ur makeup last a very long time

Expensive brand of foundation to try are Make Up Forever’s HD foundation, Estee Lauder’s double wear

Also two other VERY important things to make sure ur skin looks it’s best are: skin care..make sure to drink lots of water, moisturize your skin and exfoliate at least twice a week 

If you are doing ur own makeup (which i am assuming u r) invest in a good brush..MAC 187 or Sigma 187 (from sigmamakeup.com, thu i believe they have changed the names now) or my personal favorite Sigma F80 are going to give you a flawless airbrush look

these are all i can think of right now ..good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

Hiya ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want to go mineral I recommend Lily Lolo (available online).  A lil tip for using a mineral foundation – if you smooth a little bio-oil onto your skin and then apply your foundation you get a very smooth even coverage which sets like a liquid foundation.  Build your foundation up in thin layers, especially around your freackles and eyes.  They do a brilliant concealer, which I mix with a spot of bio oil and apply with a thin brush under my eyes.  They’re bronzers are brilliant and they’re reasonably priced too!  Thats who I’m using and I love them ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t use primer, just some bio oil, which is also really good for clearing up any little pre wedding break outs or blemishes, oh and remember to put a lil bit of vaseline on your eyebrows for a polished finish ๐Ÿ™‚ my mums a makeup artist and that was one thing she always taught me (that and the bio-oil!)


Good luck x
