    I was wearing Bare Minerals Matte, over Korres Tinted Moisturizer,
    simply because I have very oily skin and quite a lot of acne, and the dewyness of the TM can make me look gross, so I set it with the BM foundation to make everything matte.

    Oh, and thank you for the recomendation on the Korres TM, I love it!
    I wouldn’t have bought it if it weren’t for your review.

  2. Rosie

    Revlon Colorstay Combo/Oily and I love it.

  3. Aramis

    I’m wearing mufe hd188(?) with mac studio fix in nc40 but it is abt to come off lol

  4. The Revlon Photoready liquid foundation. I’m still on the ehhhh. Maybe its not for my skin type, combination. Ahah.

  5. Nadine

    Today I wore Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, and Mineralize Skinfinish in Med-Light. Its what I regularly wear. I went to see Avatar (SOOOO AWESOME). I urge everyone to go see it in theaters!

  6. Sara

    I’m wearing a little bit of mineral foudation in Butterschoth by Lily Lolo. I like it but I’m trying to finish it because I prefer liquid foundations like MAC Sculp or Select..I really love them! Select for the day and Sculpt for the evening 😉

  7. Mel

    I’m wearing a little bit of foundation stick (MAC or Bobbi Brown) under my eyes to hide the lack of sleep. I love them both. They are solid but go on creamy and blend well.

  8. geri~

    Only MSF Natural in Medium Plus today =p

  9. Michelle3eb

    Liquid! Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NW50!!

  10. cj

    mac liquid concealer + maybelline dream liquid mousse = great!
    buff a little bare essentials over the t-zone, good to go!

  11. shontay

    MUFE Face & Body, as always.

  12. beth

    Bare minerals matte foundation! I love it soooo much! Best foundation I have ever tried so far! (: xoxo

  13. Keren

    Always my Estee Lauder’s Double Wear…. as the famous saying goes “i don’t leave home without it” !!!
    didn’t find any foundation that gives me the same results.

  14. AlyxVeee

    Bare-faced. Skin is starting to look good so why hide it? =)

  15. i’m wearing Lotree Bb cream, do bb cream counts? Guess for someone like me who doesn’t have flawless skin, i could only depend on such cream to conceal my skin…

  16. ellie

    im wearing mac studio stick in nc 45 i use it with fix + to blend with a 109 i love it it is the only foundation i have finished

  17. MAC Moisture Tint SPF 15 :-) love it !

  18. Jess

    MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC15 – use it every day.

  19. Amanda

    Revlon Photo Finish in 003 Shell

  20. Giselle

    ShiSeido tinted moisturizer with MSFN light
    At night im going out and wearing
    MUFE Face and Body in 20 with MSFN light!

  21. EDM semi-matte mineral powder foundation in Sandy Medium. I love it. It works well for me.

  22. Laura

    Just concealer buffed in and then set with a powder.

    I don’t really care for it, but I’m too broke to go buy a proper foundation! >.<

  23. Liquid, like most of the time, today is Korres Wildrose Foundation in the shade WR1. Not my favourite, though, I particularly love Nars Sheer Glow these days.

  24. not wearing any today, which is usually not the case lol. am wearing BB cream though, that sort of acts like foundie since it evens out my skintone even though a bit shortcoming to coverage. 😀

  25. francesca

    Mac’s Prep&Prime, Mac’s Studio Sculpt NW20, Mac’s Select Moisturecover concealer: love the result!

  26. sandra

    Face&Body foundation in C2 by MAC, cause it gives me a bit of coverage and some moisterizing feeling… it’s very cold out here –> 21F

  27. Rita

    Guerlain Parure Extreme, number 03. It’s a bit too dark for me at the moment, I must have bought it in the summer. Sometimes I think it accentuates rids, but otherwise it is ok.

  28. Wendy

    Everyday Minerals multitasking intensive.

  29. Laura

    Benefit’s Some Kind Of Gorgeous cream to powder foundation
    Love it! <3

  30. Simone

    Still bare-faced! hehe, can’t go anywhere because of how bad the snow is here in Newcastle, UK!

  31. Taj

    only sunscreen.

  32. Miss_M

    I’m wearing mineral powder foundation. I have combo to slightly oily skin and this is the only powder that keeps my face looking decent throughout the day.

  33. Anitacska

    Due to snow and icy roads school is closed today, we’re not going anywhere, so I’m only wearing Mac MSFN in Medium (just dry). Also I’m trying to let my skin clear after my unfortunate incident with the Lancome foundation (it broke me out).

  34. Solène

    Chanel Vitalumiere in Epices n°32 mixed with Armani Fluid Sheer in golden beige n°10

  35. Tessa

    I wouldn’t normally wear foundation for a day at the office, but I bought Nars Sheer Glow at the weekend and it’s such a joy to apply and wear that I’ve worn it every day since! You can apply spot coverage where you need it, it blends like a dream, and it doesn’t look like a full coverage mask. Today I just put it on my cheekbones and blended it out with a 190 to conceal dark circles under my eyes and to cancel out any redness around my nose.

  36. Liquid – MAC Face & Body in N1. Best foundation by far!

  37. Jules

    No foundation at the moment, later it will be Diorskin Forever, Colour 020

  38. Palak

    same here , bare faced !with some moisturiser , OMG its so cold !

  39. Roxanne

    Me too. Finals = lots and lots of stress = blemishes :( 😉

  40. Natalia

    Bobbi Brown Moisturizing Cream Compact Foundation in Alabaster!

  41. Today is Prescriptives traceless tint in level one, my HG. I’m so sad prescriptives is discontinued now as I haven’t found a decent tinted moisturiser to replace this yet, argggggggh!!

  42. Bare-faced as usual. I only wear foundation on special occasions that are going to involve lots of photos. Usually it makes me break out, so I have to be willing to risk some bad skin fallout.

  43. MAC MSF natural in medium

  44. mineral foundation! Always 😛

  45. Hi, because of the cold down here in Germany I am wearing Foundation: ARMANI Silk. Love it, but it is a bit too dark. I have samples from ARMANI Designer Foundation, which is much better and has a better colour, but it is far too expensive (Armani Silk was a splurge already!).

    Imagine the Designer foundation costs 75 Euro – 108 USD. This is stupid, honestly.

    For usual I go barefaced!

  46. Bunny

    Bare Minerals – dying to try the MAC version.

  47. Faye

    I actually have pretty good skin and don’t need foundaiton just yet, so I just wear Estee Lauder AeroMatte in Light to deal with occasional oiliness in the T-zone. This works very well and doesn’t look cake-y. Sometimes at night for a more “done” look, I wear Joeuer (sp?) tinted moisturizer.

  48. I’m wearing a light foundation, MAC moisture tint.

  49. Per’fekt gel in radiant. love it and is now my “Holy Grail” foundation

  50. Tiffany

    Tarte recreate foundation and makeupforever concealer, and makeupforever loose matt powder.

  51. Akia

    Bare-faced! As I am Monday-Friday… not sure if that’s good or bad lol

  52. happybadfish

    I hardly ever go bare faced, but today my skin looked nice and smooth, so… not even concealor!!

  53. Sarah M

    No foundation today! I’ve been doing demos all week so my skin needs some serious down time. :-(

  54. Evelyn

    Murad’s tinted moisturizer with spf.

  55. Almay TLC 16 hour… it stays all through my workday, and doesn’t bother my skin.

  56. Charlene

    MUFE HD but I would rather be wearing powder foundation. I only got it b/c everyone says how great it is. I mustve not worn liquid for a long time b/c I dont know what so great about it. Maybe my HUGE pores are not conquerable. LOL

  57. Erica

    Diorskin Forever 023

  58. I’m wearing loose mineral foundation, as always :) Today I’m testing LaurEss Minimalist Soft Petal mineral foundation. So far, so good. :)

  59. Solange

    Today I´m wearing Givenchy´s Photo Perfexion Liquid Foundation in Perfect Vanilla. I purchased it a few weeks ago and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.

  60. MAC Loose Mineralize Foundation

  61. Giselle

    im wearing Jafra liquid fundation for oily skins, its nice, but now that is almost over i think i will buy a clinique liquid fundation cause i have ear that they work perfectly for oily skins

  62. Toni

  63. Dior’s Hydrating tinted moisturizer with sfp 30 (right?)

    Clinique super fit foundation and absolutely love it. Going to MAC right now to get the lilly pulitzer collections……so excited!!!!!

  65. Heatherette87

    Studio fix fluid NC40.

  66. Silk

    I am wearing Bare Minerals Matte foundation. I am truly loving this foundation and always avoided Bare Minerals due to how it made darker skin appear ashy. The new Matte collection is winner!

  67. today i am wearing MAC mineralized skinfinish natural over some kryolan concealer. lately i have been too lazy to do a whole liquid foundation routine. i’d rather stay warm in bed a few minutes longer. 😉

    i usually bounce between MAC studio finish spf 15, ysl teint resist and temptu airpod depending on how my skin feels that day or what i have planned.

  68. *neena*

    I’m wearing Korres Tinted Moisturizer. I love it! I just wish it came in more colors.

  69. Maria

    Dior Nude. Was great, when fresh, but now its horrible. So its good for the first 3 months only !

  70. Alexis

    chanel teint innocence compact – it was pricey for me but luckily i had a gift card to pay for half of it. I love the coverage – it’s definitely buildable.

  71. DonnaN

    Hard Candy’s Sheer Envy tinted moisterizer in Fair

  72. Angelique

    I’m wearing studio fix fluid from MAC in NC15, so you can tell i’m very very very pale! I really cant go out on the streets without make up these days, people would think i’m a ghost hahaha!!!

  73. Tiffany

    hey, wasn’t your resolution to wear makeup more often? 😉

  74. Sable

    Seeing how I’m trapped by snow in my house, I’ll either be going bare faced or a tinted moisturizer! Is it spring time yet? =(

  75. Maggie

    Im testing out MUFE HD #153 today. I hope it works out! 😀

  76. Vijaya

    The Body Shop’s Matte It primer under MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation under a few spritzes of Fix Plus.

  77. Kelly

  78. lunatwinkle

    Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation, love it!

  81. buttafly19nm

    A bit of Concealer under eyes and Bare Escentuals Matte Foundation! Love it!

  82. Kallie

    BFTE Cosmetics in Medium. It is my fav and at $12 it’s a steal.

  83. Andrea

    MUFE HD #118 for me!!

  84. Sara

    Working from home, so nothing yet. Later I will be wearing MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC15 and MUFE HD powder.

  85. Shelby

    Neutrogena Healthy Skin enhancer tinited- moisturer over a light dusting of Studio Fix power foundation from MAC.

  86. I’m wearing MAC studio sculpt (Nw25). I like this foundation in the winter and from MAC this is the only formula that matches my skintone

  87. Marjolijn

    Tinted moisturizer Binky from B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful :) Love it!

  88. Susie

    max factor pan stik

  89. allison

    I am wearing Bare Escenutals Med Beige matte and Med Dark reg foundation (yeah…I know, right?) 😀 applied with MAC Fix+ spray.

    I am loving the matte/reg foundation combo, even though the color is a hair too dark for me (Im NW43 in MAC Studio Fix liquid). Need to get color matched to my “winter color.” LOL

  90. Nicci

    I have used Sisley oil free foundation for 2 yrs but after finishing my 2nd bottle I started experimenting. I have on a sample of Clarins Everlasting foundation today…going to try my sample Armani Lasting Silk foundation tomorrow.

  91. Haylie

    I’m wearing Smashbox Tinted Moisturizer which is okay. It’s really oily right after I put it on but I just apply MAC Prep and Prime Translucent Powder over and the oiliness goes away and doesn’t come back. The light shade and the medium shade it like NC25 to NC44, respectively. It’s ridiculous, but I’m glad my skin if light enough in the winter to fit the light.

    It’s pretty thick so it gives really good coverage. Still feels like a tinted moisturizer though. Not streaky or anything.

    I used to wear MAC MSFN but it broke me out and gave me a really caky finish. Liquid is definitely for me!

  92. Nicole

    Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation – it’s okay, nothing special or life changing. I just picked up a sample of Chanel Pro Lumiere to test out! It was tough leaving without buying the entire Spring collection too. LOL.

  93. Sass

    MAC Studio Fix Fluid today…currently researching out Chanel Mat Lumiere.

  94. shivani

  95. Lurique
