Which foundation is best 2 use 4 an easy application w/out overdoing it?

So i'm a pregnant carmel colored african american woman w/combination skin & a terrible "pregnancy mask". I have dry skin w/a slightly oily T-zone. I'm sick of all these dark spots on my cheeks but I dont know what to do about them. I've read that i can use concealer but I dont know how to or when to apply it. I'd like too find an inexpensive foundation that applies easily & provides good coverage but not so much that it looks like I'm wearing a mask. Whats good there?

  • You might want to take a look at some of the mineral makeups. They go on like powder and are really easy to apply. They look a bit like a solid powder, lift up the part that holds the makeup and there is a brush to apply it with. They are very light unlike many of the liquid foundations that feel thick and heavy. They cover very well.

  • Merle Norman makes a total perfection. It's in a compact and has excellent coverage! Also, you can try Derma Blend. I know that Macy's carries that brand.
