Foundation and Powder
I have tried many different foundations and powders. I have used Lancome, Avon and now I am currently using MAC. The one for MAC I use is foundation and powder together. It is alright for my skin, but am looking into other products to preferably change. What products would you recommend for foundation and powder (separately). I end up with an oily t-zone by mid-day and would like to prevent that from happening when wearing make-up. I also do not want anything that is too pricey. Please help!
dear ntailor! i have tried almost ever form of foundation, and all the various brands out there, so here is my advice
One thing i strongly advise is using a primer! it will really help make up stay were you put it, and stop that mid day make up crisis!
Skin is so personalized so you have to test out what's out there and see what works for you skin... but its really worth doing.
My all time personal favorite is bareminerals foundation with spf 15, it is a little pricey but it is really a great investment. It doesnt irritate the skin, and leaves a " glowy, luminescent" finish. I LOVE THIS POWDER! it acts as a foundation, and covers all your problem area's but doesn't leave skin cakey, or dry.
I think you will find this powder a great substitution for your MAC powders!
The foundation that actually works for me and is definitely inexpensive is- Revlon color Stay for normal to dry skin Spf 15
It stays put for me, It makes my skin even toned plus protects with spf which is always a bonus for me.
I actually use it for a nice clean and polished daytime looking Makeup.
Although it is a long wearing foundation it still works with my dry skin. Some days when I prefer a sheer coverage I use a dampened sponge with it.
make up for ever's mat velvet + foundation is great for keeping the oil away. it's $34, but you can wait for the friends and family discount to get it for around $27. mac's mineralized skinfinish natural is my favorite powder. i also like physicians formulas powders. and i think you should consider using primer under your foundation, it really does make a difference!
