Normally use Clinique Repariwear and get on just fine with it but I've used it for years and wondering if there's anything else out there I'd like.

I don't tend to suffer from spots but I like good coverage because my skin tone is quite uneven, can also be a bit dry. Repairwear is quite matt but I do like the more dewy looking foundations. Do they give as good coverage and can anyone recommend one?

I'm 30, if that helps.

I love my Mac one - good coverage but still fairly light. And I use one that's slightly moisterizing.

Lancome, any of them are good but I use the adaptive one. Its not oily but not too grainy IYKWIM. I get very oily on my T zone but dry on my cheeks and it works wonders.


I'm 30 too and I find it helps even out any wrinkles hmm

Great, thanks both.

Have you considered the mineral stuff?
I find it fab.
Bare Essentuals is the one I use, but more companies are doing it now.

I have got it but can't find one pale enough for me unfortunately Annie. I do like the coverage though.

I use the Fairly Light one, it's the lightest, and I'm very pale. Shame, cos it's great. Perhaps one of the other brands?

I don't normally use their products as I tend to think it is a bit older woman but the elizabeth arden foundation is very good.I'm very pale and the soft sunbeige is a good match which is a bit strange given the name.It covers spots and my not very good skin well without looking caked on with a little help from the secret camouflage concealer which is the best one IMO.

Another vote for MAC here. THey tend to do a good range of colours and match you really well, when you ask them to.

Giorgio Armani foundation is brilliant.

Dior Forever was recommended to me by a makeup artist friend and is fantastic. It gives beautiful, smooth coverage. Worth a try next time you're passing a Dior counter. The Diorshow mascara is also brilliant.

Prescriptives is worth a look and they'll custom make the shade for you.
I am a fan of Clinique repair wear but I am 50s- though my skin is till good- but I'd have htought you could get away with something more dewy andlighter.
can you stretch to Chanteceille (sp)- supposed tobe great too.
