Is there any type of foundation or brand in general that you can recommend for me to try.


Use Bare Minerals!



That's what I'm using now & have been using for about 4 years. I have the primer & mineral veil but it seems by the end of the day, I just look greasy. Maybe it has something to do with the humidity that we have in MD but during the winter, it's not as bad.

Do you use Bare Minerals, if so do you have any suggestions on what I can do?

I am so clueless when it comes to makeup. My mom never spent much time with me on that... I very rarely wear makeup, but when I do wear it, I wear mascara, eyeliner, bronzer, and sometimes eye shadow.

People think I don't wear it because I'm a hippy.. or so they say... truth be told... I don't wear it because I suck at it.

They think your a hippy because you don't wear makeup? :roll: JEEZ what meds are they on lol, that is so stereotypical. I think no make-up is kinda cool, it shows that you are comfortable with your looks and can go with out it.

it's just the no makeup thing... it's the way I dress... think... pretty much everything about me screams hippie... so they think that's why I don't wear makeup... lol...

I am pretty comfy without it for the most part, but all girls wanna feel pretty sometimes... :)

Instead of Bare Minerals - try Everydayminerals.com
It is "organic" mineral make up out of Austin - only sold online and they will send you a FREE sample kit that you pick out and put together the colors/finishes you need. The make up is AWESOME and has no weird chemicals. Check it out!
Also, Proactive has a primer that works well under make up to absorb the oil and keep stuff from bothering your skin. Ooh, also Philosophy has a great primer that holds make up in place (essential for oily skin or humid climates)
Good luck!

Thank you for the advice, I'm going to the website to check it out.

I think I may have tried the Philosophy primer before, I have a couple of their products also.

Thanks Again

I used to use Bare Minerals but it looked really greasy at the end of the day, and It took way too long to put on.

In the morning I have like 5 minutes to get dressed cause I run Track, and Cross Country in school. So that wasn't fun. :lol:

But I have really bad dark circles under my eyes, so i use this Shiseido cream thing, I don't know, but it works really well. I have Loreal True Match foundation that goes on nice and quick :D And then I just use mascara after that, and I use CoverGirl Lash Blast.

I used to wear so much makeup but it looked kinda fake, and it took forever, so now I just use that, and I'm good :D
