Hum no I don’t ! It really depends on what look i’m going for and hows my skin that day. If my skin is more dry i’ll go with Mac Sculpt foundation but when its good i’ll go with whatever i have on hands, most of the time Mac Pro Longwear 🙂

I wear the same one everyday, foundations expire and go bad specially liquid ones like the one I use so I only own one at a time to make sure i get to use it all up.

Usually I’ll alternate between my Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation or the MUFE HD. Or I’ll be trying samples that I have in my stash. My current batch include: Guerlain Lingerie, MAC Matchmaster, Smashbox Studio Skin, Chanel Perfection Lumiere, and Hourglass Immaculate Oil-Free.

YUP…I use a medium-buildable coverage foundation so if I need anything extra I can layer or if I don’t need so much I mix it with my moisturizer. The only times my foundation changes are if I change color or I run out

I don’t wear foundation everyday, but I do wear B.B. cream everyday. I always use The Oriental Gold B.B. Cream by SKIN79. ♥

I switch between MAC MSFN and a mix of NARS Sheer Glow with MUFE Face & Body. I don’t wear foundation everyday, and since I pay more attention to liquid expiration dates, I try to only keep a few liquid/cream foundations on hand at any given time. I’ll use my MSFN over concealer with a buffer brush on days I want to be quicker with my routine or don’t need much coverage. Otherwise, NSG has been my favorite liquid foundation for 2+ years now, and I tend to wear that most. I just don’t have an exact perfect match, so I use the the MUFE to help tint it as needed. The MUFE in 32 is great for me alone in summer.

Christine or anyone, what do you suggest to clean/sanitize stainless steel makeup palettes during use that won’t damage them?

I find that I reach for medium-coverage foundations everyday especially the ones I like, that aren’t too heavy and dewier finishes. I tend to ignore my heavy coverage foundations (Shiseido Lifting cream & Liole BB Cream Triple the Solution). I use Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation as a concealer but I find that it’s not so heavy that I wouldn’t wear it everyday but I just don’t need that kind of coverage everyday.

I still have a relatively full bottle of MUFE HD that I bought with NARS Sheer Glow. I finished NARS Sheer Glow and the MUFE HD still stands. I honestly don’t think it’s that great for dry skin or even normal skin.

I bought CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua and I’ve been loving that, it’s basically my everyday foundation.
Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation as concealer or for those bad skin days.

Don’t wear foundation everyday because I don’t have time everyday BUT when I do have time I’ll wear my Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals cream foundation or my Ettusais bb cream. Both work well on me and I am quite satisfied with the results..

I do have some foundations like the Bourjois Healthy Mix and the Covergirl Natureluxe lying around but they’re both the wrong shade. Unfortunately.

Usually I do for my everyday makeup routine, but when I’m only going out to do some errands I try to use as little products on my face. The opposite goes with going out with my friends. I use a fuller coverage foundation since I want it to last all night. But most of the time I like sticking to just one foundation that works for me.

Yes I do! I do stick with using one foundation at a time to follow the makeup expirations. I don’t want to waste any of my makeups so I just use one at a time. 🙂

Yep. I don’t wear foundation often enough to justify owning more than my usual, and I prefer applying it sheer so I can build up with other cosmetics if necessary.

It changes from day to day for me, depending on what coverage I want and the finish I’m going for – I have one that’s lighter that the rest, for when I’m going for pale skin/red lips (I love that for going out). I have 5 foundations I on my counter that I choose from every morning.

I don’t wear foundation every day, but when I do it’s Bourjois Healthy Mix! I’ve been having it for a couple of months and it works like a charm!

At the moment I’m switching back and forth between EL Double Wear and Tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hr full coverage foundation, after trying a ton recently in search of something to effectively cover my red blotches. They’re both great and cover my problem areas nicely; now I’m just trying to figure out which one I like better.

i have the same problem with red blotchiness, and i tried the tarte amazonizan clay 12 hour and fell in love with it. i’ve been using it daily for about 2 weeks now and i’m still very pleased.

I have a go to foundation that I tend to wear daily-Dior Extreme. I have a few others that I switch to depending the occasion and ny mood. But mostly I stick with the Dior.

If I’m in a hurry I’ll reach for MUFE hd in 120 because I can trust its coverage and color. If I have a bit more time and on the weekends i like to use samples and mix tinted moisturizers together. If im feeling tan that day I can get away with just a TM. I am searching for one for special occasions (in college that was Chanel luminere) but since MUFE supposedly photographs so well I may just stay with it!

I’m very pale and have neutral undertones, very hard to find foundations that are not too yellow or too dark. I use Matchmaster in 1.0 and mix it with a tiny bit of Illamasqua Rich Liquid foundation in white. Sometimes I use a mineal foundation that is the perfect color.
