I think you have GREAT coverage. But of course this is coming from a newbie in the make-up world. I don't think a person needs complete coverage for everyday looks. I'm really against that obvious "I have on foundation" look. That just bugs me...especially since I've just started dabbing in foundations.

Look at your face. Do you have a great deal of dark spots, blemishes or old acne scars? If you think so, invest in a good concealer. And then check out a lightweight powder. I swear by MAC's Mineralized Skinfinish. It's light but good enough to where it can cover up the few dark spots I have. I think I remember you saying you play around with mineral make-up anyway, right?

For better overall skin so that you don't have to rely on foundations 100%, try getting rid of those dark spots. People swear that there is no way to get rid of them but I swear by cocoa butter. I'm serious. It has never failed me. I actually use it all over my face, but I think it's okay to put on certain dark spots too. Somethin' to think about..

Hey there! I think from your photos, you don't need more coverage on a daily basis. I'd consider it for more special occassions or if you know you're going to be out doing something all day and can't touch up. You don't want to look like Christina Aguilera does lately, do you? ;)

DB- girl thanks! i really want to try out that MSF...i hear nothing but great things about it! and i have the same outlook...i want to flawless skin look WITHOUT looking like i have a ton of foundation on. and the mineral makeup is pretty good, the staying power isnt so great though and who has time to put the stuff in the lid...swirl a kabuki brush, and apply during the day...touch up is a B****! but im most def gonna try out the MSF! thanks girlie!

nillacookie- i had the same thoughts. for everyday looks i don't think you need all of that extra stuff...like DB said..a little concealer and some powder should do!

Hey sweetie. From the pictures, you really don't look like you need a lot of coverage. I'm against the cake look too and prefer a more lightweight coverage. I agree with Ms. Divine about investing in a good concealer if you have those dark spots and circles. But definitely check out the MSF. If you find that you need a little bit more coverage but something still lightweight, I would also recommend the Select Sheer/Pressed Powder. It smooths out your skin while still giving you a natural look.

Let us know how it goes! :)

hey, your friend is right, but mainly people are concerned with full, even coverage when taking pics. nice to have on the daily, but not ideal for the average person esp. keeping your skin healthy. though, getting into makeup and learning different foundations, it's getting harder and harder not to go all the way.

i was wearing my msf natural for an everyday finish, which was nice for a few hours, but after that even going into the fall, i always seemed sweaty or i'd get a little shiny towards the end of the day (4-6pm) (eek i'm not one for touchups) so i've been using my msf natural as my finishing powder that i still buff over my covergirl natural hue foundation. maybe for me and others a mattifying gel or lotion under the natural msf will help to combat the shininess.... experimenting with different combos and formulas of foundations is about the same as experimenting with different eye shadows and applications =(( good luck though on your adventure to finding the right natural face finish for you!

You so don't need to apply more foundation. Try using a concealer for those areas that need extra loving.:)
