I use Clinique, I think it’s call Almost Makeup. It’s SPF 15 and it feels really light. I am lucky, I have pretty decent skin, so I don’t need much coverage. So it’s perfect for me.

laura mercier illuminating foundation. I’m going sans foundation all week though in case my skin freaks out. It doesn’t clog my skin, I just want to be extra extra sure. I usually top it with some bare escentuals mineral powder. I have nice skin and luckily can go to work with naked skin, but the combo really gives me a nice, fresh look.

About a month ago, I tried something new that I’ve been really liking.  It’s Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin liquid makeup.  The coverage is good, but not too heavy and it has SPF 20.  I wanted to switch to something a little less spendy (had been using the Laura Mercier that ejs4y8 uses), so I tried this out and really liked it.

I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and then I put her translucent powder over top. I love LM make-up, she is my favy.

I love Bare Minerals! It’s so easy to use and doesn’t look like makeup!

Another Bare Minerals fan here!  Though I have tried the Almost Powder from Clinique and love that too!  For the dry months, I’m currently a fan of Korean BB cream (like a tinted moisturizer).

Okay, just a quick side note to all my fellow brides-to-be.  Watch the amount of SPF in your base/foundation.  Higher SPF’s can make you look "pasty" or create a "halo" effect with the professional photographers equipment.  So, keep it a lower amount…and bring an umbrella if you plan on spending time outdoors, just to protect that skin!!

A couple of weeks ago I bought Smashbox primer and Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer and I love them. I have combination skin and some blotchy spots and I love the coverage. It evens out my skin tone without looking like I have a ton of makeup on.

Clinique super balanced is awesome! Light coverage (no caking here!) and my skin is super dry as well.  Use your normail moisturizer under it.  I have been really happy with this foundation so far and I am SUPER picky because everything I use makes me break out. Not this one baby!
