As a teenager I used to have moderate acne, scars, oily skin, etc. Now a few years later I no longer have problems with acne just oily skin and rosecea. I've been using Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector and its significantly faded my scars and helped with the redness, but the one problem I've always had was finding a good foundation. I have light skin with yellow undertones and I just can't seem to find one that covers the redness on my nose and last all day due to my oily skin. I've been using Clinique Even Better Foundation and Urban Decay's De-Slick before and after I apply my make up. I also apply my foundation with a foundation brush.
The products work okay but I'm looking for a more long lasting solution than checking my make up every half hour. Any suggestions?
Bobbi Brown has an amazing array of foundation colors, you could probably find your shade there. As for making your foundation last, I have been having great results with Givenchy Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation primer- this feels very nice when you put it on and the foundation really lasts!
Hope this helps!
Make Up For Ever has a great, oil-controlling foundation primer called All Mat that you can find at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P16
Make Up For Ever also has a great foundation that I think would be great for your skin type which is called Mat Velvet + Mattifying Foundation which you can find at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P17
MUFE also has a "shade-finder" that will assist you in choosing the correct color for your skin tone which you can find at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/brand_hierarchy.jhtm
I hope this helps you.
