  • well, i don't need a lot of coverage and my skin tone is hard to match so i use the tinted moisturizer from cover girl. it never breaks me out and it moisturizes so that's a plus for me.

  • I have been using Bare Mineral from It's the best coverage and it doesn't break me out. I got the starter kit about 9 months ago. One container of foundation lasts me about 3 months. And I wear it every day.

  • I use almay smart shade. I use the lightest one. Its not magic, you still have to find the right shade but its spf 15 and its not too expensive.

  • i swear by bare minerals!!! its the best ive ever used..i get blemishes easily and my skin gets dry and flaky and oily (combination skin)..and bare minerals is so light it odsnt clog pores and it feels so natural like its not even on..and i love how well it hides my blemishes, i feel like a covergirl with it on. its kind of expensive but it lasts a long time.

  • I love mineral makeup by Affordable Mineral Makeup.
    It's great...I can control the coverage and it doesn't look AT ALL like i caked it on! It looks really natural. AND they have my perfect shade. I'm a hard one to match and after years of trying to be matched by every company out there, this one is the first that gets it spot on. : )
