  • MAC is the best I've use for flawless coverage but I don't like to pay that much for make up. Avon actually makes a pretty good concealer cream to powder foundation and it's only like $8. But when I buy from the store I get L'Oreal Infallible foundation. It works well but can get caky after a while...

  • Although I do truly love MAC, I found that in order to achieve a flawless look, I had to use a little more, which got expensive. Finally, I found Merle Norman's Total Finish Compact Makeup. It lasts forever, because it only takes a little bit. You can wear it wet or dry.

  • I love Smashbox. Make sure you use a good primer first (Smashbox has several designed for different things, reducing redness, brightening skin, etc.). I just recently starting using both and for the first time EVER (I'm 46), I am over the moon about how this foundation looks on me. PERFECT!

  • I received the new covergirl natureluxe sample in the mail and I must say it is AWESOME! I went online and purchased it after 2 days of wearing my sample. It definitely lives up to the hype.

  • I love Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation you only have to use 2 pumps and it lasts for sooo long. Its really light weight and natural looking but covers up imperfections. I really like Makeup Forever and Laura Mercier as well.

  • I really love MAC face and body! It's a great, buildable foundation that is waterproof. Plus you get tons of product for the price. 4oz for like 32 bucks!

  • Flawless look I use MK foundation primer w/minderal powder foundation. The foundation primer feels silky smooth on your skin.
