Make Up For Ever's Duo Mat Powder Foundation ($32) is definitely a favorite. If you don't like liquid foundation, pay attention. I generally don't have time to put on makeup before I leave in the morning. And now I don't have to lug around my liquid foundation! Using the round sponge stored underneath the powder, I dab a small amount over the red parts of my cheeks, sides of my nose and around my mouth. For a normal day, that's it for the face. Full coverage in a compact. If I need more concealing, I'll use MUFE Lift Concealer beforehand. I was skeptical of the steep price, but you really don't need a whole lot and I think it will last for a good long while. I'm a MAC NC 25 and I got #203. If you buy this, I recommend writing down what shade you are or keeping the box, because the # on the back always rubs off. ALWAYS. It's only available at Sephora.
