best fondation for pail skin?
I am a teenager just starting out in makeup and almost every foundation makes my skin look orange because of how pale I am and I found one foundation that didn't make my face look as orange but the coverage was awful so if you know of any good foundations and maybe concealer and bronzer help a girl out and let me know thanks in advance

Need mineral make up change
I have been using Bare Minerals for some time and I like it but am feeling like I need an update and maybe a little more coverage.  I would prefer not to wear a liquid make up because I tend to sweat it off in the warmer temperatures. I don't want to waste my time to basically see all the makeup wiped away within a few minutes of leaving my house.   I want to look natural but still have some coverage. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Best Foundation Overall
what is the best foundation you've used overall? I've always pretty much used drugstore foundations and bb creams in the past but I have used an it cosmetics foundation and some kind of bare minerals serum foundation but I hated it. I really want to get a high end foundation and find something I like and is also good with skin. I am thinking about getting maybe either the Estèe Lauder Double Wear Foundation, Lancôme Dual Finish Mulit-Tasking Foundation, Born This Way Foundation, or the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Definition Liquid Makeup but I really don't have much experience with this so if anyone could help that would be great! thanks so much!

3 different color IQ numbers but consultant said all are too dark
I went to 3 sephora stores and got 3 different color IQ numbers: 2Y06, 1Y07, and 2Y07. The second store with 1Y07 recommended Laura Mercier in Blush. The third store got 2Y07 but she said it is way too dark for me and she ended up hand matching me and recommended Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturizer in Nude and YSL Touche Eclat number 2.   My question is what is my correct color IQ so I can see my matches? Should I just pick one of those?
