I was wondering if any of you had thoughts on the best foundation for oily skin -- but also a foundation that doesn't settle into fine lines?
I currently use a liquid oil free foundation because the powder foundations seemed to look really cakey on my oily skin.
I haven't tried the mineral make-up yet and wondered if that might be a better option that the liquid foundation? I also want to minimize pores as well.
Would love any thoughts!
But, I use GloMinerals by Jane Iredale. It's not inexpensive, but I really like it. It's a pressed minerals foundation (not loose powder). You can find it at many PS offices, or buy it on line--hard to match up right color that way, though. Try to find it locally the first time, then order off the 'net after that.
The trick in minerals make-up is the application and a good Kabuki brush (invest in a good one). Take the necessary time to "polish" or "buff" in the foundation and the results will be well worth it. If you just spread it on your face, you won't be happy. Application is everything--I use a Kabuki brush instead of the sponge that comes with the make-up. It gives a much better finish than with the sponge.

I remember seeing that Jane Iredale sign at the estetician's room at my PS's office -- I will have to check it out.
Where do you look for the Kabuki brush (thanks for the tip!)? Do you use the brush for a primer and foundation?
Sorry, I shouldn't make you type more with your shoulder!
s'ok, I mostly type one-handed, except for capitalizing.
I would go get color matched the first time at your PSs office. They will likely do a make-up application for you at little or no charge if you buy from them.
They will probably have a Kabuki brush at your PS's office. If not, Ulta has them if there is one in your area, or any other nice make-up store in your area. You can order them on-line too. Try to find one that is non-shedding. Mine is short and stubby, fits in my hand really well.
I've seen those brushes -- I just didn't know they had a name Thanks -- good to know that they make the difference with application.
Does Jane Iredale have a different line other than the GloMinerals? I know I saw a sign that said Jane Iredale -- but nothing about the Glo Minerals. Maybe I'll have to give the Estetician a call there.
Thanks so much for your responses!
I feel stupid, it is not Jane Iredale--it is GloMinerals. Sorry. I don't know why I thought Jane Iredale made it--duh. I just buy it from my PS as I'm too lazy to order off the 'net or I wait until I'm about out and don't have time to order off the 'net.
I use the medium beige:
Sorry for the confusion. A lot of ladies like the JI minerals make-up though. You might give it a try, too. Still, whatever minerals make up you try, you will want a good kabuki brush (full and thick) as the secret is in the application.

Thanks, I will check both of them out. I found a day spa that carries the Glo Minerals and the estetician at my PS's office carries the Jane Iredale. I'll have to experiment. But now to get that brush . . .
I love glominerals! When you get the makeup don't forget to get the primer. It gives a smooth surface before putting the pressed foundation on. I have oily skin and is prone to acne. The glominerals has not caused me to breakout.
