Maybe start using a foundation primer before you put on your Bare Minerals. It helps the powder glide over your pores rather than sink into them. It will also make your foundation last longer. I like Smashbox and Makeup Forever’s primers, but Bare Minerals has one too.

Otherwise, if you’re just sick of powder foundation all together a few that I like are Revlon’s ColorStay (affordable) and Chanel (expensive). Definitely get a good foundation brush. My favorite one is only $10 and I use it EVERY DAY. I love it! http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3220083′ defer=’defer

I use liquid over powder because it’s less messy and it lasts longer on me.

As for bronzer brands I like Tarte, Nars, and Bare Minerals “Warmth”. I like MAC too, but I feel like it gets used up faster than the other brands I listed.

cherrycoke – Yep I started using a brush about 2 years ago. Some women like using their fingers or a sponge but for me a brush (specifically the brush I recommended above) gives me more even coverage/less streaks, I don’t use as much product as I would applying with fingers, and my makeup has an “airbrushed” finish.

It may take some time to get used to and a few different brushes until you find one right for you though. I went through at least 10 different styles of brushes before I found the one I use now. But once you find a technique that’s good for your skin condition it’s like the clouds open up and angels sing lol!

I would definitely suggest using Tarte’s bronzer if Warmth isn’t working for you. I’ve been using it all summer this year and I really like it!
