If a guy can see your wearing makeup, he will try to kiss you in other places so he won't get it on himself. You can always wear a tasty lipgloss so he will want to kiss you on the lips and bypass your face entirely.

Also, what is foundation? What does it do, as opposed to all the other make-up out there that I don't know the name of. Is foundation enough? What about concealer, or whatever...what does that do? I'm guessing it conceals stuff, but if you have a "foundation" then you don't need anything else right? Make-up is confusing and scary...lol. I have no idea about any of it.
I'm not a huge fan of foundation, but if you are working in a formal business setting, and you want to look polished, foundation will even out any skin flaws you might have, such as a red mark from an old pimple. It gives you an edge and a feeling of confidence, in my opinion.

Hmm..well my boyfriend doesn't like make-up. And I'm pretty sure a bunch of other dudes don't as well, so I was just wondering. Seems like it'd take all the passion out, if he's too busy avoiding your face, trying to be careful.

I like Illuminare Fantastic Finish foundation. It's a liquid mineral base so you don't have that powdery look. It is thick so I mix it with a little moisturizer and then apply it. Illuminare sells samples of all their products so you can try it at home before buying. I wish it was available in stores.
I wanted to like BE but I think it is for young skin. I don't have bad skin but it seemed to emphasize all the little flaws.

I've used Bare Minerals but now have switched to the Ulta brand mineral makeup--works just as well & 1/2 the price! Mineral makeup is definitely a lighter feel--I would never go back to cheap, store-brand liquid makeup!

Are mineral makeups better for those of us with a problem like Rosacea? I picked up a brochure for Jane Iredell cosmetics at the dermatologist's office awhile back.

I hate the redness on my face, and feel like I just cannot get away without makeup any longer -- but, I don't like makeup at all, either.

I have rosacea and I like the way Jane Iredale makeup feels on my face...it doesn't feel heavy and it doesn't seem to make the rosacea worse.

I don't have rosacea but I do have that high colored Scotch Irish skin (lots of red) the Jane Iredell works very well at taking the red out. I also like to use the Philosophy Supernatural mineral makeup. The Iredell gives more coverage than the supernatural. Another thing I have found that really helps my redness is a product by Mary Cohr. It is sold at The Grove Park Inn's spa but can be ordered online. It is an anti redness cream. Love it!

Same here. Sensitive red (ruddy) scotch Irish skin. Disliked the Bare Escentuals, made me itchy was messy. But the Jane Iredell is great. Another one that works for me is the Philosophy Supernatural. Gives lighter coverage that the JI but is great for days when i am playing tennis and such and don't want as much coverage.

So far so good. I really like the powder foundation which is a great match for my skin tone. I used Chantecaille for many years but wanted to try something different (& less expensive) and was steered in this direction by an esthetician.
Fifty-something and have used Jane Iredale for years. Have tried a couple of the others, but return to JI every time. I do use a foundation at times now- maybe that is the aging skin-thing mentioned in a previous post.

I have rosacea and JI helps it- I go without makeup some days, something I nevet felt that I could do when my rosacea was not under control. I have not used RX meds for my Rosacea in more than a dozen years, thanks, I think, to the Jane Iredale Amazing Base. Something about the zinc, I think.

I use the Bare Minerals/Bare Essencuels (sp) line. I really like it, but it can get a little messy. The makeup looks natural and I have noticed a difference in my skin...much smoother.

I also use the Rare Minerals products which is an extension of Bare Minerals. My skin has no more redness or irritation. Best stuff I've tried and I am a user for life because of it.
