I can’t really do liquid foundations without it looking obvious on me plus I like a more matte finish than dewy. My favorite is bare minerals compact powder foundations. Lots of colors with many undertones so I can find one with pink undertone that fits my skin. Coverage works really well and it doesn’t look like I have makeup on. It melts into my skin so to speak after about 20 minutes and the powder doesn’t sit on my face and make me look powdery at all. ( I also shave my face to avoid baby hairs) I can even dip my concealer brush into the compact and dab on blemishes and it covers seamlessly. I also find that powder conceler covers better and more naturally on blemishes than liquid.

i use dr. jart’s bb cream with a tiny bit of bare minerals powder foundation.  

sephora is pretty nice about giving free samples (when it opens back up!) if you want to try before buying a whole container.

My everyday work foundation is Wet N Wild Photofocus foundation. It is extremely cheap at the drug store, very long wearing, and medium coverage. I love it! I have oily skin for reference. I saw Glam Life Guru review it on Youtube and I was sold, she was very impressed with it and has very bougie taste lol.

I also wanted to add, I see a lot of bees saying the IT Comestics CC cream, which I do like for summer just due to the SPF and easy to appy and go! However, it does tend to shine up on me even with a midday powder on my T zone, so I no longer wear it to work since I need it to look good for 8+ hours

@bluejaybride  Revlon, because the older I get, I ain’t spending a fortune on a foundation every month. I will whip out the MUFE HD foundation or Too Faced Born This Way for a girls night out or a hot date (something special).

Girlactik Luminous Face Powder. It is MAGIC! I use a flat kabuki brush to apply it. It gives my skin a super natural and healthy airbrushed look. It literally takes 20 seconds to apply! I go from looking like a zombie to bright and fresh instantly. I swear by it. I have dry skin but it doesn’t cling to any of my dry patches or look dry on the skin. It’s also not glittery at all even though it is luminous.

My go to for the past few years has been MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, thinned out with a little bit of daytime moisturizer. This helps me deal with different moisture needs across seasons and helps me customize because my skin can’t handle checmical sunscreens. $20 and a tiny travel friendly bottle lasts me a year, easily.

I use the Korean brand Missha BB Cream.  It’s hard for me to find foundations pale enough for me, but this one matches great.  It’s also not heavy coverage which I like.

Coverfx’s cream foundation. It’s pricey, but I love it.

Everyday- Colourpop Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer

I don’t wear a full coverage foundations much anymore but when I did I wore the Two Faces Born This Way. Their undertones are whack though, they love their warm tones and I’m neutral.
