Can you recommend me your foundation? I need a good one with good even coverage (I have a few scars and suffer with open pores on my face - yuck!) not worried about cost as I think you should buy what is best when it comes to foundation

I love Estee Lauders double wear. Stays on all day and the coverage is brilliant. You can ask them to try some on you at the EL counter and they'll prob give you a sample of it so you can try for a bit before you buy to check its suitable. As I'm still lightly tanned from summer I mix mine with a bit of tinted moisturiser and it still gives lovely coverage,just a bit lighter.

I'm loving my new MAC Studio Fix. Put on with primer at 06.45am and do not have to reapply all day. Very happy with it.

Double wear probably no good if you have open pores. I found it just sunk into mine and made them worse
I'm using Benefit flawless just now. Gives good coverage but doesn't make my large pores look worse
Anther vote for Estee Lauder doublewear. I discovered it 2 years ago and didn't look back. truly amazing. I've had no trouble with the pore thing; if you go to a counter to be colour matched they'll give you a sample that lasts a week so you can try it out.

Benefit slips off me CW, it's why I switched.
I might see if I can get doublewear and Mac samples and try both!! I need it to last all day preferably as I cannot be done with a full re-apply mid way through the day

You got a MAC near you? Go in and ask them to apply then see how it feels for rest of day / evening

I use Clinique stay perfect (I think) which is for combination skin and so works well on my lovely mixed dry and oily skin.

I have use Max factor one before and loved it.

I've been using Max Factor for years (different ones), but I never find it lasts that long - I just bought the Estee Lauder double wear a couple of weeks ago and it's so much better, and lasts all day - I went for the lighter one which isn't such heavy coverage.

Recommend a good primer. I jut started with the smashbox one and love it!

Lauren it's amazing how much of a difference using a Primaer makes isn't it!

I love Smashbox primer and also MAC Prep and Prime.
Foundation wise, I find MAC the best...either Studio fix or Match Master

Munchkin you're like a makeup whore aren't you I'm loving the studio fix with prep & prime. Need to treat myself to a decent concealor next.

Primers defo help it to last, I also think it's smooths my skin

I use Benefit hello flawless oxygen wow, foundation. It's a new liquid one. Also use their new fakeup concealer which covers well without drying out.

I didn't rate benefits new hello flawless liquid LL. I preferred the compact but both slipped by lunchtime
