Currently I use Mary Kay’s Tinted Moisturizer as opposed to liquid foundation.
Reason: Summer has been hot and humid. Why put on lotion and then foundation, when you could just combine them? Plus, liquid foundation may cause you to break out, even if the formula claims to not clog pores. It would be your sweat that clogs your pores.
I have combination skin, meaning dry in some areas, normal to oily in others. Hence, Mary Kay’s Tinted Moisturizer does the trick. I apply the tinted moisturizer, check for dry spots, and apply Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Cream to avoid shine.
I do realize some people will still find shine on their face. In order to remove the shine, I highly recommend Urban Decay’s Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup. It is mess-free and leaves a natural matte look.
*The new design doesn’t allow you to open the container to use a brush, though Urban Decay claims otherwise. (Edit: actually, good news~ I twisted harder and I was able to open it.)
