    I use Lily Lolo, which is a mineral powder foundation and it's really lovely. You can build up coverage but it looks really natural and your skin feels nice with it on. It covers most of my blemishes but if I have a particularly hard to hide one, they have a concealer too which is brilliant.

    And the added bonus is that it's the first foundation which actually matched my frosty the snowman skin!

    Vichy Idealia BB cream - I love it because it's light and makes me look 'fresh'. But it seems to get a bad rep from other reviews I've read.

    Depends on your skintype.

    I like Estee Lauder doublewear, Lancome Teint Idole, and most MAC ones

    I used to use Double Wear but I started using Bare Minerals about a month ago and absolutely love it! I can't imagine ever using anything else. Definitely try out the starter kit... it's amaze!

    I used to find this would happen when I started using it! But now I just use some moisturiser/face cream before applying it

    Steer clear of boots and superdrug type foundations. I really do believe that getting an expensive foundation pays off.
    I use double wear too! But I use the maximum coverage one which is really thick but I LOVE a lot of coverage.
    I hate all MAC foundations, they are greasy and don't last.
    I would definitely recommend Clinique and Dior. Chanel is amazing too.

    Found this to be generally true for all cosmetics.

    Although maybe it's just a placebo effect? :dontknow:

    YSL Touche Eclat Foundation <3 Life changing.
    I love Double wear for nights out as it sticks to you like glue but I prefer the light version.
    MAC foundation is awful! Sooo over hyped.

    Vichy dermablend is the best foundation, full coverage yet light and longlasting. Its gone up to 16 pound now so I've now had to use rimmel wake me up foundation.

    Haha, I definitely don't think it's a placebo, it's just a much higher quality I think!
    But there are definitely some rubbish expensive foundations e.g. Nars.

    I just feel like it's so hard to colour match with cheap foundations, they are either pink or orange! and they last me about 30 mins before I'm patchy!
