I know that several celebrities' such as Britney and Cameron's skin is not perfect. However, they look flawless in magazines and on TV. I know this can't be all airbrushed. What kind of make up do they use? I'm sure it is a professional grade but I know there would be some people willing to pay big bucks to make their skin look as good as their's. Anyone know??
Bare Essentials and Jane Iredale are some names I have read about in magazines. They are both mineral based foundations which are great for acne cuz they let the skin breathe yet cover flawlessly. They are quite pricey- $50 and up, that I found on the internet. I saw a good website from Canada that had a reasonable price on all the good products- try look in Yahoo with the name Jane Iredale and it brings up some Canadian website.
Like cherrygurl, I have also heard that celebrities use mineral foundations. I have been using Jane Iredale since July and I must say it is the best foundation I have ever used. It is expensive but covers excellently when applied properly and doesn't have that heavy makeup feel. I am on Accutane and have acne scars (hyperpigmentation) and look nearly flawless and not made up when I use my JI pressed powder. It is expensive but well worth it. A little goes a long way so a pressed compact will last you six months or more. Sure beats all the money I've spent on liquid cosmetics that make my skin feel goopy and overly made up. If you apply it right it doesn't even look like you are wearing make up. I actually get comments on my skin when I use it. You can request free samples online (which I did) before you make a purchase. Also, the Jane Iredale site can tell you if there is anywhere local you can purchase/try their products. It is sold in many dermatologist offices and also selective salons. I pay about $40 for a compact and recently purchased my second compact since I get rather pale in the Minnesota winter. It probably sounds too good to be true but you really need to try it. I will never use anything else.
I have tried Iredale and BE... I like them a lot, however, they break me out everytime I use them. I don't know why b/c it is supposed to be great for the skin unlike most foundations. It really sucks b/c I love how the make up looks on, especially when I am really clear!
