  • I use Arbonne liquid. I use to use their mineral foundation but feel in love with the liquid which also has anti aging propertise. I use all arbonne on my face as I have excema (dry itchy skin) so I have to be careful what I use.. and I have no issues with this. The make up is actually good for your skin. As they say beauty with benefits.

  • Bare Essentuals mineral powder foundation. I LOVE IT!!! I have oily skin and it doesn't get cakey or gunky. Just a bit expensive but it lasts!

  • I use Loreal True Match minerals. Love it, love it, love it. Covers everything that needs covering and it's very light. I just wear my moisturizer under it and it's flawless. I'm never going back to liquid foundation again :)

  • I'm VERY oily and use Bare Escentuals. Love it! It no longer looks like you could drill for oil on my nose! And it stays put all day.

  • I've tried everything from drug store makeup to Estee Lauder, Avon, Clinique. The best for me (and I've switched back and forth "just to see") is Revlon Age Defying (I've been using it for at LEAST 4 or 5 years - just turned 30, well before I was aging). It's a liquid. I have pinkish skin, sometimes oily, sometimes dry - rarely normal. This makeup evens out my skin tone, but let's my freckles show through. People have said, "I didn't know you wear makeup! You don't need it!". LOL. They only THINK I don't need it, because Revlon improves my tone without being heavy or obvious. I LOVE it! I recently bought Avon Beyond Color mousse foundation. I also like that, but it's not nearly as great as my other stuff. I just wish they still sold the Age Defying in a pump bottle. :(

  • The best makeup is one that feeds your skin with pure, safe whole food derived ingredients and not with dyes, chemicals, fragrances, alcohol, and mineral oil (just to name a few). Check out these brands at and you will see how they are rated. Savy people educate themselves about what they are putting in and on their bodies - and that includes makeup since we use it almost every day. Many ingredients have been linked to cancer and other things! I have found only one line that is 100% certified organic and that is Miessence. Check it out on this database and at Everyone should know what they are really putting on their faces since our skin is our largest organ and absorbs 70% faster than taking something orally. Be health conscious and do the research first! Your body will be glad you did!
