When I was younger, I used L’Oreal True Match since it’s fairly inexpensive. (Even now, in between purchasing expensive brands like SK-II, my mother uses True Match.) It shouldn’t be too hard to match your complexion, if you’re rather fair.
Ever since using bb creams, though, I’ve never looked back. :)posted about 8 years ago
It sounds like you need something pretty light, which is usually good so it doesn’t look caked on :)
I use Covergirl TRUblend pressed powder. I’ve never used an actual “foundation” but I feel like this stuff really smoothes out my complexion. It comes with a little make-up sponge which is nice for overall coverage, but sometimes I will just put it on with a powder brush just to reduce shine. It’s pretty cheap, you can just get it at Walmart which is nice.
A tip for finding your color is the under-part of your forearm, close to your wrist. I think Covergirl might even have the little transparent color swatches in the aisles to match with? I’m not sure though.
Good luck I hope that helps a little :)posted about 8 years ago
For foundation I recommend Revlon Color Stay. Its really close to MAC foundation and is a lot cheaper. They make it for several different skin types which is always good and you can really control the coverage with it. In the past 6 months alone I’ve tried several foundations and so far this has been my favorite of all time. Oh and I would stay away from the Liquid Dream Matte Moose. I’m a fan of that line but their liquid one just wipes off even if you use a primer and finishing powder.
If there is a makeup store by you I would try and go there first because they usually have samples or testers of their makeup, even the cheaper makeup like Revlon and L’Oreal. Though I probably wouldn’t actually buy from there if you’re getting makeup you can also get at drugstores, where its gonna be cheaper. Just use it to find the right color. Also most drug stores and such will let you return or exchange makeup.
Hope you find what you’re looking for _posted about 8 years ago
I absolutely swear by bare minerals.
the start up kit is 80$, but it came with a great brush set, and the powder lasted me 6 months.
nothing even compares to the glow it gives.posted almost 8 years ago
THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT IVE EVER OWNED – you will love it, it is worth every penny!!posted almost 8 years ago
I would definitely recommend Clinique. it’s great for any type of skin, and if you go to the department store, the people at the counter are really helpful.
anything clinique is really, really good to your skin and not super expensive either :)
if you get something over-the-counter, it’s helpful to go somewhere where you can actually try the stuff out and see what color is best for you, like Ulta. (hopefully there’s one where you live.) Covergirl is usually pretty nice too.
everyday minerals. click here.
it’s basically the same as bare minerals except way cheaper and with better colors. does the trick. i live by it at this point because i don’t want to spend extra money on anything but clothes. haha!posted almost 8 years ago
