    Okay, so I went to the shops this morning, mission: find a foundation.

    I had makeup from MAC, Napoleon and Dior applied to my face and all of them seemed to still be too heavy, even though all of the foundations were supposed to be lighter coverage ones. I just felt like I had that painted look. Clearly I'm not used to wearing proper foundation, but I thought at least one of them would kind of melt into my face a bit, not look like a layer sitting on top of my skin!

    I got given a couple of take home pots from MAC & Dior so I can try them at home myself, but I'm pretty sure the Dior isn't the right colour for my skin (Dior was the last one I had applied, and in the harsh light of day my face looks too orange).

    If I can't find a foundation I like, I'll probably give nude by nature another go. I used it a couple of years ago and I liked it.

    I will probably go to Priceline as a next port of call and have a look at the Bourjois and Rimmel foundations suggested in this thread.

    I have found most of those too heavy as well especially if you're used to a bb or tinted moisturiser.

    I wear lancome teint idole which is pretty good, very nice coverage and it lasts 12 hours +. I'm starting to find it a little too dry for my skin though. or rather, I feel like my skin is too dry for it. it's definitely a matte finish and I feel like more of a dewy finish would be nicer on my skin. the lancome is $55 and lasts for ages (I wear foundation every day for work and prob buy a new one every 3 months or so?)

    I am a huge MAC devotee with make up, however like you, I don't like the feel of heavy foundation, in fact I don't really wear it. I have tried so many and again, find them all so heavy. I am going to buy the Armani, but in the meantime I using the Maybelline BB cream 'Dream Fresh', it's like I am not wearing anything on my face at all.

    Default Recommend me a foundation please

    Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation or maestro fusion which is so light it's more like skincare then foundation (it's even more expensive though). They are expensive but hands down the best I've ever tried. And you don't need much. Otherwise MAC face and body foundation. It's water based and not thick at all like their other foundations. MAC mineralise skin finish powder over the top for perfect finish.

    How much is the Borjoise (sp?) one @GucciDahling ?

    What moisturiser do people with dry skin use under foundation?

    So a foundation brush is the best way to go for application (not a sponge)?

    If if you're buying brushes Real Techniques are a great brush.
    My sister is a MUA for MAC and she recommends these as a cheaper alternative to the more expensive brushes out there.
    I'm using my set for the last two years, I love them.
    Although I bought mine in Ireland, you can buy them here in Priceline

    I bought a brush set in NYC at sephora a few years ago. I used one of the brushes to apply foundation but never really got comfortable applying foundation that way. I used to use my fingers but got told that was no good (?!) so now I just use a sponge. I buy those packs of makeup sponges from coles. the little rectangular shaped ones. it's handy just throwing them out and not having to bother washing them. I'm hopeless with washing my makeup brushes so it's handy using sponges you can just throw out after a few uses.

    I use my fingers. I'm interested in what you were told?

    I sometimes do, too. I actually had the Napoleon girls recommend it for a more full coverage last month.
