I’m looking for a makeup (foundation & powder) that is light, but covers everything. I want it to look natural but still flawless. What are your favourite make-up brands?

  • nude by nature mineral powder


  • My daughter likes a brand called Boujois for her foundation. She buys it at Priceline.


  • There are so many great and affordable makeup options these dats its great. My 2 fav affordable foundations would be maybelline fit me and revlon colourstay, ive just started using both without powder (for as long as i can remember ive always ysed powder on my foundation) and find they give a nice natural finish. A good powder is the rimmel stay matte (managed to find that on special for $4) and its great.


  • I’ve always liked the Maybelline brand – good quality at an affordable price.


  • I answered on another thread as well. My favourite brands are Rimmel, Maybelline, Revlon , good quality and affordable . You can buy great items on sale as well. I bought a Clinique lip balm set last year and my daughter snatched a Revlon lipstick set for a great price this year . With foundations , I like them to be good quality and must last on my face. I am currently using Max Factor Facefinity Flawless Foundation which is just fantastic, light and lasting .


  • Maybelline FitMe. I use a tan colour but you can get it in light.


  • I love a self tan based moisturiser.
    It leaves me with a glowing complexion & is so easy & simple yet makes a dramatic difference. It also leaves me feeling good!


  • Lancome has beautiful foundation and powder and between Myer and DJ’s there is always a gift with purchase at certain times.


  • Nude makeup is my favourite. It’s so light. Avon has some good stuff too. The Body Shop does lots of great stuff too, and free from animal,testing


  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Light is my favourite.


  • Now nutrimetics has a DD crème and corrector evens the skin tone with a perfect matte-glow finish


  • Avon cream to powder foundation. Its amazing and i get no pimples when i wear it. Actually i get more if I’m not wearing it


  • Love Nutrimetics BB Crème with sunscreen built in. Not animal tested. Garner and some others are.


  • I love MAC for this, gives a lovely glow without that heavy look.


  • Love The Body Shop’s BB cream :) very light and natural looking
