No Makeup Look

I'm 18 and have been wearing heavy makeup all through high school and I've decided it's not a good look for someone my age. Since my skin has been evening out I want a more natural look. Most drugstore makeup is too dark for me so I was gonna look for something from Sephora. i want something that gives me a no makeup look while making my face look glowy and hiding my minor acne scarring (or at least not enhancing it). I'm fine with powder foundation, liquid foundation, or a tinted moisturizer. I don't like sparkles which is why I steered away from Tarte's smooth operator. I've also tried Bare Minnerals, it made me itchy and kind of blotchy. As for skin tone I'm not really sure my mother says I'm more pink but the ladies at Sephora tend to steer me towards gold undertone products. My skin also tends to have some minoe under the skin bumbs that show up if my makeup is too greasy. Product wise I've also tried Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation, which was to dark and made me greasy. Josie Marans Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation, which again I found was a little dark. I was considering the new Tarte foundation but I was thinking it might be steering away from the natural look I want, though I love products that are good for my skin.

Have you considered trying a BB cream?? It has a universal shade that warms to your skintone as well as provides coverage. I'm very fair and quite pink, and it looks very nice on my skin. I like to dust it with a light coat of the Korres Wild Rose Mineral Powder Foundation in fair also .... the poweder looks great on its own as well!


Do you happen to live near a Sephora? If so, consider getting a sample of the mineral powder as well as a few BB creams to try out. Hope this helps!

Neko, I completely understand what your going though. I'm 22 and over the last couple year I have been experimenting with "grown up" foundation to enhance a youthful complexion. Out of all of these I would recommend Dior Air Flash, if you are able to put aside enough money to buy this every couple of months its completely worth it. Have a Sephora employee spray it lightly on a brush and just brush it around your face for a minute. I wish they had one lighter shade but it still looks amazing and I get surprised comments when I tell people that I'm wearing makeup.
