An Expert Debunks This Myth About Your Pores

Beauty Mark It! A Medium Coverage Foundation

In preparation for my wedding, my makeup artist told me to go to a Prescriptives counter and have them custom blend a medium coverage foundation for me. This type of coverage helps to prevent shine and hides flaws, redness and blemishes.

I'm not going to lie, custom blending is a bit costly, however, as your skin lightens or darkens with the seasons, Prescriptives will adjust the color for you at no extra charge.

The problem is that I got married a year and a half ago and I've still got this foundation lying around. I know that it's time to scrap it, but I just can't seem to find one that I like quite as much. Can you help me find a new foundation with the following criteria:

  • It leaves my skin looking flawless and it's not too heavy.
  • It looks very natural on and doesn't clog my pores.
  • My skin won't look shiny or greasy when I wear it.

Let's all go beauty marking to find a perfect new medium coverage foundation! Please come back and tell me when your Beauty Marks are up, or just tag your choices with medium coverage foundation. To learn how to make a Beauty Mark, click here.

I'm having to agree with Steen, my skin is extremely sensitive. I use Clinique and Lancome. I'll have to find them and post them though.

I put mine up! With an upcoming wedding, I've been trying to find a foundation with all the same qualities. My skin is incredibly fickle though and I hate the feel of wearing heavy make-up. I highly recommend using a mattifier to help keep shine down. My personal favorites are the Mary Kay mattifier and Smashbox's Photo Finish. You just rub some into your hands and pat it on. Finish with your make-up and you're good to go! If I get a little oily during the day, I pat a bit more of the mattifier on.
