What kind of foundation/concealor do you wear?

I am doing an experiement to see if I am truly allergic to BE. My skin has been acting weird, so I am cutting out things that are allergens to some...and BE has some stuff in it that might be. I have SO much BE, I am hoping I am not allergic.

At any rate, what kind of foundation do you use? I spent a good hour in Target yesterday looking all all different brands, and I am thinking that maybe I need to go with a dept store brand, not a drug store brand. I can't remember what I used before BE, since it's been so long.

Any recs?
Do you really need foundation? I quit wearing it when I moved to Texas 9 and a half years ago - it just felt so gross on my face during the long, hotter 'n all get out summers.

So now I wear CoverGirl concealer under my eyes, and loose powder. I think not wearing foundation has improved my skin (I have zero pores showing), and I think it makes me look younger.

Before BE, I wore something by Chanel. I loved the coverage but it stayed kind of wet all day and come off everywhere. For the look alone, I recommend it. I also wore MAC which was okay.

I don't know much about make up lingo...what does BE stand for?
3C/4A and too long to handle (and afford!)

It's mineral makeup.

For drugstore brands, I just started using Covergirl Trublend Whipped Foundation. I really like it. It goes on really smooth, blends nicely and you only have to use a small amount. It is really light and doesn't feel as heavy/cakey as regular foundation can. I had previously tried the Maybelline version (Dream Mousse) but it broke me out. The Covergirl version so far has not and it's been about a week straight of using it.
Hair Type: mix of 3's, growing out an angled bob, color-treated red.
Current products: GVP conditioning balm for co-wash and leave in, Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle, Pattern Pusha and Garnier Anti-humidity hairspray

I've been using MAC tinted moisturizer over my regular moisturizer and pressed powder over that and it works well for me. I have really sensitive skin too.

M2LR - what is going on.....are we morphing into one?

I was just telling my SO this morning that I think my BE is whats causing the little red spots on my face

My next shopping trip, I was thinking about getting some Mac - I've always heard great things about it.

Maybe my skin can't handle the BE in the cold/dry winter - it did great this fall when I started.

I use BE and EM. I have used the Rimmel all day stuff. The coverage really wasn't all day though

I've been really loving Everyday Minerals recently. I've never tried BE.

I use good ol' Covergirl Aquasmooth. Cheap and it's the only makeup I've ever been able to match well to my skin and didn't irritate my skin. Sometimes I use it all over as a foundation; other times I use it only on red/uneven spots/pimples, more like a concealer.
Don't try the Loreal mineral foundation. It looks chalky and yucky. I use Prescriptives liquid foundation, the medium coverage, and love it.
3c
Poo: KBB shampoo bar or Shikai moisturizing shampoo
CoWash: VO5 kiwi
Cond: Robert Craig, Tresemme Natural, or Fekkai Shea Butter
Leave in/Styling: Grapeseed oil, KBB milk, KCCC, and Aveda Confixor
Back when I posted about Everyday Minerals I realized I wouldn't get a color match with them (pity too since they had a great product and great prices). I did find BareFaced Minerals Velvet Glove foundation and it's been great. Rhonda custom mixed for me (about 4 shades in my foundation) and it's definitely missing the bismouth that made me itchy with BE but feels more luxurious than the basic mineral foundations (I ask her to leave out the vitamin E in mine).
I wear either BE or MAC studiofix powder. I also carry Shiseido Powdery compact in my purse for touch ups through out the day.
