For foundation, I normally just use an Asian BB cream (Skin79 brand) for everyday use, and it covers wonderfully, I find I don't need to use concealer with it either as you can 'build it up' if you need to. But if I want a really high coverage for a special occasion, I use the BB cream with my normal Covergirl Trublend foundation on top.
For mascara I use the Maybelline Falsies in 'Cats Eye'. I love it.

Foundation I use Loreal true match mineral powder.
Mascara I use Loreal two step - step one is a primer that thickens and lengthens and step two is the colour.

I use max factor 2000 calorie mascara and have done for 20 years. It's passed the test so many times.
I don't like a heavy foundation as it makes my skin bad so I use a mineral tinted moisturiser.
Off topic does anyone know what BB cream is about?

Beauty Balm... It is explained well on this...
"BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage."

MUFE (make up forever) is a great professional product.
AND... this sounds so dodgy, but I assure you many make-up artists love it too... Essence for mascara. It's about $4 (or maybe even less) for this stuff. They stock it Target and some Priceline stores. The mascara is fabulous - right now I'm wearing the one in the pink bottle (a volume one). It's pretty awesome, and is better than any others I've used... and as I said, cheap as chips!

I love the maybelline mascara's as well as I like the fine brush. For going out or when I want heavier coverage i use Max Factor foundation.

Also, just to note, Western BB creams (those available in store locally such as Garnier, L'Oreal, Maybelline etc) are considerably different to Asian ones. I have used both and I most definitely prefer the Asian one I use. Much better coverage, has a much higher SPF (the one I use is SPF25 - but they go up to SPF50) and a myriad of other differences.
The best definition I came across to differentiate between the two was this:
Western BB creams are marketed as a make-up product with added skincare benefits.
Asian BB creams are marketed as a skincare product with added make-up benefits.
Therefore meaning that generally, Asian BB creams are better on your skin. But I am in no way a professional on the matter, just passing on the info that I came across on various websites when trying to find out the difference for my own personal use

Yeah, BB's over here aren't part of a good skincare routine. They're not "healthy" for your skin. You're better getting a tinted moisturiser from a good skincare range (I know dermalogica have a heavy and a sheer tint, but there's plenty of other skincare brands). Minerals (and a true mineral has 6 ingredients or less... no more!) are good for your skin though.
But for heavy coverage, you're probably going to want something that's not too beneficial to the skin. But so long as you take it off properly, it should be fine for your skin.
