I have tried so many differsnt foundations and cant seem to match my skin tone! They look fine under the store lights but once I see myself in natural light I look pink/red...and it looks horrible! It is so frusterating and I would like to know if any one else has this problem and if there is some miracle match foundation. I think the problem is that I have a very fair complexion but I have italian origins so it is an olive complextion (with yellow undertones) I currently am wearing Loreal true match, I am using the one that says it has yellow undertones but my face is still pinker then my neck! BE mineral makeup was the only good match but I have skin issues and REALLY need more coverage then it can give. Other foundations I have tried include almay clear complexion foundation and a maybelline one (I foget but I think all the colors are the same) I am really thinking about going to a department store foundation and I wouldnt mind paying any price as long as it matches. I have acne prone skin that tends to be slightly dry so it cant make me break out...aghhhhhh this seems like a tall order... if anyone can give me any suggestions i would be so appreciative becasue I am at my wits end. Ah and one more thing I wear makeup everyday so it cant be something I need to chisel off my face at the end of the day...hmmm good coverage/color match/easy to remove/and dosnt make me break out...:confused:
I would be eternally grateful for any suggestions!
Thanks!:)

I have very light skin too, and I get revlon colorstay in sand beige, but I add 2 capfuls of avocado oil to the bottle. Shake it very well before each use. You may have to find the right shade for you, but this makes the makupe easier to apply and get off, but still lasts all day. hth
