foundations and primes?

Hi guys! 

Since I've been using makeup a lot more I'm trying to broaden my makeup collection so I'm just wondering what are your HG foundations and primers? I like matte and glowy looks so it doesn't really matter what kind of foundation it is. I consider myself a medium beige, but I honestly have no idea. I haven't gone to get my exact foundation color so for now I'd just like some brands you'd recommend. 







P.S Thanks for being so kind and answering my questions. I know it's a lot, but I don't want to look like a mess when I go out. My family doesn't really wear makeup and don't really know a lot besides the basic drugstore.

Hi Kellsmuneoka, What type of coverage do you prefer?

Re: foundations and primes?

I only have the occasional zits pop up so minimal, but I really don't care as long as it's doesn't turn cakey.

Tarte! Amazonian Clay Foundation.

Since you have some acne, try oil-free & non-comedogenic.


These all are light on the face, and natural looking foundations:


BareMinerals - comes loose or pressed - also starter kits available

Estee Lauder - liquid or pressed

Lancome - liquid or pressed or loose


If you go to the brand website, they may have a foundation finder too.


Departments stores and Sephora will give samples of anything. Plus department stores usually have a gift with purchase.


Since holidays are coming, there may be sets available through the brand directly and/or a store that sells it.



For primer:

Smashbox light - just a basic primer; oil-free non-clogging

Pur Minerals - comes in basic and color correcting - their neutral does have silicone which will clog pores

 Only know PM primers, they do have foundation and kits available
