Makeup Forever ultra HD foundation, it’s a great medium coverge foundation and you can build it in areas that needs heavier coverage.

Be careful about anything labeled HD or with sunscreen in it. They sometimes don’t photograph well. I used MAC waterproof. It wasn’t heavy and stayed all night. They will give you a sample to try. I applied it with a damp sponge over Smashbox water primer and Benefit porefessional.

I love Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue – it’s a tinted Moisturiser but has really good coverage when combined with a good concealer and it lasts all day.

futuremrss17 :  If your foundation is coming out reddish, it’s because the tone isn’t good for you. For drug store foundations (that you can also find at Ulta) I personally love the True Match and I also look reddish/orange in a lot of foundations so I have to buy ones for cool tones. When I am tan I normally wear C5 in this brand (this is the type I probably wear the most) http://www.ulta.com/true-match-lumi-healthy-luminous-makeup?productId=xlsImpprod4480167 the high end ones I love are all from MAC (i like the pro-longwear and the mineralize). I also wear either NC25-NC-30 or NC-35 depending on the time of the year. They are matte and have great coverage. I use NYX matte finishing spray, NYX primer, and NYX concealer (they are my faves) and for powder I use MAC. I use MAC for special occasions and I also used MAC for my wedding. The MAC photographs realllllly well. Make sure you use a foundation that doesn’t have sunscreen (creates shine and doesn’t photograph well) and that it is the right tone for you. Also, invest in a beauty blender if you don’t have one. It is the best for application.

mrsrekraps22 :  This is my favorite – I use it on my whole face, but also as a spot concealer under powder sometimes.

No mineral make up in your foundation.

I love all things Mac, but for photo/tv/film foundation my favorite is a maybelline pan stick. Flawless skin and perfect coverage without looking cakey. It’s basically a creamy foundation that can be mixed for the perfect color. Top it off with a Mac powder and some blush, mascara and a nude blushing lip and you’re done if you want a natural look. 

 They don’t make my favorite version of this over here anymore– here’s the updated version:

I went to sephora and bought their sephora brand foundation.  It is not full coverage so it still leaves you looking natural.  I never wear makeup and this was comfortable for me all day on the day of the wedding… despite it being 95 degrees all day!!!

One thing that made a world of a difference on my skin was using a beauty blender to apply foundation. I don’t use the original brand either, just a cheap drugstore dupe as I like to replace them frequently. I would definitely recommend getting one, if you don’t already use it smile
