Hi Elleveetee77,

 

Based on your skintone and the shade that you currently wear, I recommend the Urban Decay Naked Foundation in 3.5 - light shade, beige with slight pink undertones. It will have the right amount of lightness and has more of a neutral undertone.

 

Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

I also suggest the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush. Its made with synthetic bristles to easily distribute the foundation.

You can also use the Sephora Collection Pro Flawless Airbrush #56 as an alternative product.

To piggy back on this question, I have the foundation and brush, but when i apply it, i see brush swipes and i end up having to rub in with my fingers,  What should i be doing?

I'd go with "1" in Urban Decay's palette both have similar undertones and are fairly light. Good Luck!

@makeupobsessed-Couple of things could cause this. Are you using too much? I use the Sephora stippling brush and use less, not more foundation than when I put it on with fingers. Seems counterintuitive, but give it a try. Are you trying to get too much coverage in one step? NAKED foundation is buildable to a moderate amount of coverage, but you have to let it dry between layers or it streaks. Is the foundation a perfect match? I have to blend in a little of the one step darker foundation in summer because even though I use a whole tube of sunscreen in a shocking time, my skintone darkens ever so slightly in the summer and my winter foundation is a tad too pale.

Give it a try and see if any of these help.
