    Default Makeup mums! I need advice.

    I need advice on the best "drug store" foundation/setting powder combo I can get my hands on reasonably inexpensively, I usually wear younique but one of my kids ruined my pressed powder and I've run out of liquid foundation. I have a function on the weekend I need to wear makeup for.

    Helllpppp

    I like NYX. You can buy it at Priceline and Target. The HD foundation is good and I love their BB cream for everyday. Can't remember the name of the pressed powder I have...but it's also quite good - not cakey/stays matte etc.

    Liquid foundations -
    Revlon ColorStay
    Maybelline Fit Me matte & poreless
    Maybelline 24hr Super Stay

    Pressed powder -
    Revlon Photo Ready
    Australis Fresh & Flawless

    ETA get your hands on setting spray by NYX or Models Prefer and your makeup won't go anywhere!

    Will you be photographed? Also are you pale?

    Eta. Maybelline Fit Me powder (all skin types), Rimmel Stay Matte (for more oily skin), Face of Australia translucent.

    All of these have pigment and aee too dark for me.

    I will add Big W had 40% off makeup yesterday so maybe check them out today.

    Silicone powders generally have white cast. But if there will be little to no flash and if you use a small amount only the Australis setting powder (I think it is the HD powder) works ok. It is white so does not darken foundation.

    Primers - for 'dewy' the Loreal Lumi Magique is nice (hydrating).

    To stop oil/blur pores I have heard the Maybelline master primer is ok. Or the Loreal perfect blur (or something similar).

    Any of the Face Of Australia primers, Rimmel Stay Matte if you have oily skin, Australis or NYX pore primers.
