Foundation Help

Hope everyone is doing great!


I'm in search of a new foundation & possibly a CC cream if you have any recommendations. I like a more natural/satin finish or a light matte finish. I'm looking for medium buildable & full coverage recommendations. 

My Skin:

Combo Skin

Large Pores


Acne Scarring 


For powder, I'm searching for a baking powder and a pressed powder for the areas I'm not baking. I'm not a fan of any shimmer in my powders or any luminosity. The powder I am using now is currently sticking to any dry patches I have and it is very annoying. 


I'd appreciate any direction (:


Re: Foundation Help

These are two of my all time favorites. 🙂 The Lancome foundation is matte. But in my opinion it's one of the most natural looking foundations out there. And it's very buildable, so you can really control the coverage.

Re: Foundation Help

Have you tried Charlotte Tilbury airbrush flawless finish foundation? This is a full coverage, but you need to start with a little bit because it’s super full coverage! I love this for glam days and events. You can mix this with a lighter foundation to create a satin finish. I often do this with Light Wonder/Flawless filter. 

For a glowy natural finish, I love using Charlotte tilbury Light wonder. This is a light-medium coverage, covers redness pretty good, but you can spot conceal! It’s a buildable formula imo. I don’t like a lot of foundations tbh, and these are really good. I’ve been using these for more than a year. 


For powder, have you tried Cover FX perfect setting powder? I love this for under the eyes and it’s also brightening. You can use this for baking, too. I’m a big CT fan, so this next powder I’m going to recommend Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder . This is a really good formula and will not look cakey no matter what. I think it’s a great all around powder!
