What foundation works with this primer?
I am having a HE** of a time with this primer. I usually use either Cover FX or Makeup Forever powder foundations. I have tried both with this primer and the results are disasterous. I look awesome leaving the house, but within 2 hours, the makup has separated on my face, settling into my pores and looks mottled. There are some great reviews -- what foundation works with this primer?

I use this primer - then I use cover fx concealer which matches the thickness of the primer so I find it mixes to make a tough base for my liquid foundation. I was using urban decay foundation on top of that and then brush on powder and it worked marvelously. I just started to use the same routine but with kat von d tattoo liquid foundation and I dont find it works well at all. But to answer your question straight, I would use a concealer ontop of the primer first but make sure to blend well cause it will be patchy otherwise. :)

I have combination skin (mainly an oily T-zone) and I normally apply this primer and then Makeup Forever Duo Mat powder foundation, first with the pad/sponge it comes with and then i use a foundation brush to quickly buff my face to even everything out. Once I'm done with the rest of my makeup I set it all with Urban decay's All nighter and my makeup stays even and in place all day. I usually need to blot my nose with some oil absorbing powder in the early evening-ish but other than that stays well all day. Hope this helps!

Liquid foundation is better to use then powder. apply moisturizer before putting on the primer. after you put on the liquid you can put on a powder to lock it into place.
I've never tried it with a powder foundation. When I wear my Urban Decay liquid foundation it looks great. I use other primers if I'm just going to be wearing powder only.
I use MakeUpForever HD liquid foundation, as well as the new BareMinerals BareSkin liquid foundation, and both seem to work well with the primer. I've found a good trick is to use your hands to press the primer into your skin after you've applied it - and before you put your foundation on.
