I have posted this before.. But I'm still searching...

I like full coverage foundation, I suffer with dark circles under my eyes (11 month old non-sleeper) and large open pores. I currently use a primer, MAC pro longwear concealer, then either Mac studio fix/estee Lauder and then a setting powder after. No matter what I do my foundation 'cracks' and creases on my face. Can anyone recommend anything. I really want to stick with a full coverage foundation.

Tricky! Have you tried a different primer? Perhaps a more moisturising foundation would help? I recently tried Chanel les beiges and really like it and it seems to last. I'm on the dry side though. On the high street bourgeois is my go to and I like the coverage and it lasts if set with a powder.

I love Chanel foundation but best tip is invest in an O Wow brush - it's amazing for even application and you can build up the coverage as you want.

JAB - I had thought about changing primer and seeing if it makes a difference. Which do you use if you don't mind me asking.

I like Chantecaille Future Skin but it is £60 a pot - good for coverage if you use a brush it's really flawless, but I save it for evenings and days I need a lift for every day I use Laura Mercier or Boots Botanics BB cream (now discontinued but a lovely MNetter sent me some she didn't want). Sounds like you need a trip to your nearest Space NK
