The Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream goes smoothly on my skin, all I use is my hands but if you want to get fancy you can use a foundation brush.

This one has a matte finish. It’s silicone-free, fragrance free, and doesn’t rub off too quickly. Comes in 12 shades, mine is Honey Beige. $42.

L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation

Best foundation of the day and on Marta Walsh’s Best Foundation List of all times: L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle. It feels super light on the face yet it covers perfectly (like its slogan it looks like ‘Magic’) all imperfection on the skin. But the best thing about this foundation is that it’s so matte you can even skip a face powder which is un-heard-of with some other brand foundations.

Not too oily and shiny and not too dry either. I found Magic Smooth Soufflé and True Match Naturale Gentle Mineral Makeup.
