    Helloooo,

    Can anyone recommend a foundation thats goes on easily and it good for covering up spots and blemishes? When i get hormonal spots they tend to scar for a while afterwards (even when left alone and not squished) and need something good to cover them up!

    Thinking of visiting one of the posh counters in debenhams or selfridges.

    I have quite sensitive skin and I like biotherm. I used to use Clinique.

    I get my foundation from eBay - it's much cheaper.

    Virgin Vie have some excellent foundations, but my fave is the one step face base, which is a compact, applied with a sponge that gives perfect coverage. Costs £14.25 and refills are available for I think £11. I am a consultant so feel free to contact me if you need any further info

    Only just caught up with this thread but I recently switched from Clinique's Soft Finish Make-up to the Bodyshop's Flawless Finish Foundation. I never thought I would ever switch from Clinique but I don't think you can beat this new bodyshop product. It's also nearly £4 cheaper.

    clinque is a great foundation- lt really looks natural and stays on all day without the oil painting look. Try at one of the big stores and get the girls on the counter to make u up....... ul end up buying the shop !!!

    Bobbi Brown is the be all and end all for foundations!

    It is very expensive (at £23 for a full size bottle) but they are 2 years from opening to throw away, and I have had mine for a year and a half already, and there's still loads left. I probably wear it 4 days a week.

    I think mineral foundation is the best.They have sheer to full coverage and even you have layers on, they will still look very natural on you. I have tried Signature Minerals and Everyday Minerals. Love both of them :)
