For years I used Mac Studio Fix then I switched to Bare Escentuals but now I'm bored with it. PLus I always get it on my clothes when I'm applying it. I tried Cover Girl Aquasmooth and I LOVE it but even in the lightest shade it turns orangey on me after a while.
I use Clinique Superpowder. It's got foundation already in it and applies like a powder with either the sponge or a powder brush. It has good coverage, and since I found the right color I don't even see a line.
I actually use Bare Minerals...I think it's awesome stuff...and I haven't really gotten any on my clothes, but that's because I use a foundation square instead of their brushes...it goes on with a lot more coverage that way.

I have an everyday foundation and a going-out foundation.
I have found that you need to be aware of how different lights affect your make-up. During the week when youre outside and in a brightly lit workplace you cant be wearing something thick and heavy, because sunlight and flourenscent (sp?) lights will make your make-up look terrible and thick. You need something light that looks natural. I use Innoxia young solution. Its very light and has a slight coverage so it still looks natural.
At night time when youre out having dinner with friends or having a few drinks you want something that covers well and makes you look like you have a flawless complexion. When youre drinking alcohol your body gets dehydrated and your face lacks that natural glow. You need something that brightens your face and gives it a glow. I use Maybelline dream matte mousse and I LOVE it! It has great coverage and feels so light. Its so nice to put on your face too, it feels wonderful and makes your face feel beautifully soft.
Before that I alternate with Prescriptives and Clinique. The Clinique one I was using was the "workout" one because it is light and then I was also using the Prescriptives one that is basically a tinted moisterizer.
I use bare minerals too! I love it - it has made my skin so much better - everything else always caused me to break out in pimply bumps all over my cheeks and whatnot. I always put it on before I put my shirt on so I never have a problem with the powder on my clothes. Then I carefully dress the rest of the way.
