Do you wear a darker makeup foundation in summer? --Even if your direct sun exposure is minimal? Or do you just add bronzer?

I don't wear any. I think it's bad for the skin and clogs up your pores!

Yeah, me too.
Never wore foundation, never used a bronzer either.

If my skin is tanner, I'll wear a darker foundation to match my color, and always make sure it blends into the neckline. Hate seeing dark foundation on the face that doesn't match the neck!

In the summer I use a mattifying gel with SPF and a bit of powder. No foundation.

I only use a bronzer if I'm going somewhere fancy.

No lighter, because we are out in the sun most of the summer.

Even though my face doesn't get much sun; I do use a slightly darker foundation in the summer to match the very faint tan I get on my legs/ arms/chest.

If my skin gets darker I have to use darker makeup otherwise it looks pasty/ill. Bronzer on top of my lighter shade (porcelain) just doesn't work. It comes out orange or looks dirty. A stronger warm blush works for adding warmth in the in between phase.

Its kinda peachy, but too orange for porcelain stage - good with ivory and deeper. There is a bit of glitter to it but you can knock the majority of that off with a fluffy brush and matte it out with a setting powder.

I just use tinted moisturizer and I don't tan so I use the same type all year round.
