LOL! Well, if they start making foundation for men (which I actually think they may already!) those would be some good names for it!

I tried to give you rep points for that KayKay, but I wasn't able to.

If you wanna talk to me about foundations, you'd better be referring to concrete and steel!

I agree here, covergirl foundation is the best. I've been using it for 20 years. The rest of my makeup is a mix of MAC, Loreal & Mary Kay.

Yeah, well maybe our face is a construction site, first we have to lay the foundation on ~ then start building on it with eyeliner, mascara, blush, lipstick, etc.

You've never heard of Cover Girl before?? It's been around for many, many years. Some famous models used to be the spokesmodels for CoverGirl (like Christy Brinkley).

Me too. I've used it since I started wearing makeup (since I was about 14). I love it. And it's the least expensive brand that anyone can afford too.

any thoughts or comments on this? I know that adding a dab or 2 of sunscreen to my foundation makes it blend and spread so much easier in the morning. If you do it with lotion instead, you just have to make sure it's not one of those nasty greasy oily lotions... it will spread and blend nicely.. but it will clog your face so bad! your skin needs to be able to breathe, regardless of what you put on it, hehe.
Hi Fiddle -

You're right, you have to be careful on mixing, as anything on the face will sink into the skin, somewhat, eventually. Moisturizer is meant to absorb & will pull in foundation with it & cause clogging/blemishes/acne. An old model's trick is to blend moisturizer/water/foundation into the palm of hand & apply. Looks great & is nice for photos or special occasions, as it gives a nice flawless look, especially to dry skins. However, those who liked the look & wore this blend all the time had awful skin problems & needed professional facials.

Good question about mixing base with sunscreen, as some bases contain them, however, I don't know if sunscreen alone has moisturizing properties (those that assist absorbtion into the skin) or if it's additives allow it to sit on top of the skin. I guess it would be trial & error & ensuring one watches the skin carefully for signs of clogging/blemishes. Perhaps just applying moisturizer, then sunscreen, then foundation is our best bet? That's what I do since I've had skin cancer, on my face no less. By the way, Baby Aveeno has a nice feel to it, is easy to find & isn't too expensive. Many sunscreens feel like a lovely coating of cellophane all over the face & if they've got that beachy smell, I like them less. If you do try it, please let me know your results after a few weeks.

Have a good week... VV
