I own a handful of liquid foundations and bb creams but I hate to feel makeup on my face. I love powder foundations for everyday makeup. I've only found a few powder foundations that are worth trying, especially if you have combination to oily skin.

Imagine from Sephora

This will come to no surprise for those of you who follow my blog. I've been using BareMinerals Matte foundation for 6 months or so and I love it. Since I have combo/oily skin so the matte formula is perfect for me. This is a lightweight foundation that provides light to medium coverage. On days that my skin is clear, I apply concealer to my under eyes and a light layer of foundation all over and I am good to go! It doesn't break down from my oils and keeps me matte all day. {Swirl, tab buff}

Honorable mention: BareMinerals Ready Foundation. Read my thoughts here.

I find my Milani products at CVS. I LOVE this powder foundation. They don't have a wide variety of colors but if you can find your color its awesome! I can wear this without a primer and it keeps me matte most of the day but with a primer it keeps me matte all day. I like to apply this with my ELF Kabuki brush.   Swirl the brush into the product and stipple it onto your face.

I love all Tarte products (especially because they are cruelty free). I really like this powder foundation, the packing is really cute and I love the airbuki brush - it's adorable! I have used this foundation with a primer and without and it does break down on my skin, especially around my t-zone. I cannot wear this for a full day of work, I mainly use it on a Sunday when I'm just running errands. If you love mineral foundation and you have normal/dry skin, I think you would love this foundation as it is lightweight and does not look cakey on the face.

Have you tired these foundations? Which ones do you like? Let me know if there are others I should try!
