When I do actually take the time to do makeup, I do the full thing, including foundation.
Normally I use Bare Minerals (which does say it has an SPF of 15 on it). But sometimes when I want a heavier coverage (like for a special event at night) I'll use Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse foundation.
I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in the nude shade and also the Tru Blend in the ivory shades, but they are revamping that line since the ones that are shown in the Drew Barrymore commercials look different and they have nothing in the Cover Girl section at Walgreens.
HI EVERYONE, Yes, I do use foundation every day. I don't use any powder. My skin is very dry. So, I used tinted moisturizers or a foundation that contains moisturizer in it. I use different types too. Right now I am using Jane's tinted moisturizer. It is cheaper & at the Walgreens, most of the time it's on sale. Buy 1 get 1 free. Have a nice weekend, everybody. Judy K.

I have always worn foundation. I recently switched from the usual creamy type to mineral make up by Jane C Iredale. I love it. It is incredibly light. It tones my skin without looking made up and is very moisturizing.
I tried using my former brand once and couldn't stand it.
Does Bare Minerals provide good coverage? I've always assumed that it provided light coverage, which is why I've never tried it myself. The girls in the advertisements all have near-perfect skin, so I want to see them apply it to skin that has "issues". www.ethnic-beauty-central.com
I used to use a liquid foundation every single day, when I was younger. I was acne prone and was convinced I needed a relatively thick layer to make my skin look healthy.
Now I'm almost forty and I just let me be me. I don't wear makeup or anything. I am lucky in that I work from home so I usually have nobody looking at me. Even when I go out with friends though, I figure either they take me as I am or I'm not going to worry about it Oddly at this point it seems more to me that the stuff I put on my face might cause skin irritation, that I'd rather leave it bare and "healthy" vs putting things on it which might cause it to break out or have rashes.
