We've used this powder foundation for years. The trick is to find the right shade. MAC Studio Fix is perfect for women with oily skin who want to minimize the appearance of large pores.

So many of my friends want natural, organic products in their makeup cabinets and this is the foundation I direct them to. The coverage is excellent, it provides 20 SPF and it's made of ingredients that won't break you out. It does have Wild Rose extract, which is a potent source of Vitamin C, so there are some anti-aging benefits. Users report the coverage lasts a long time, but might not be thick enough for those with blemishes or acne. You might need a thicker formula. Paraben- and sulfate-free. Also an Allure Magazine "best buy."
When gorgeous women share their beauty secrets, I take note. French performer Arielle Dombasle is married to philosopher Henri-Bernard Levi and is absolutely gorgeous.

"It's incredible," says Dombasle, "it literally brings the light to your whole face."
