So many beautiful recommendations laisla! I want all the lipsticks, they make me crave for fresh, spring makeup looks!
And I have to give it to L'oreal because they're one of the few high street brands that make really light color foundations. I swear by the True Match in C1..it's even lighter than NC15 in MAC, and provides amazing coverage for my oily skin.

what is this, I'd love to know! my current system is to just apply my moisturizer spf before I go out and then use my spf 15 (not enough but the best I can do)psysicians formula powder before I go back outside again.

and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible...

Piz Buin makes sun screens that are meant to last for 8 hours and longer. I use the brand a lot but I don't trust the promise and keep reapplying anyway so I don't know if it actually works.

normally I wouldnt recommend MAC for face products because Im not a fan but Select Moisturecover (if your skin is on the dry side) and Select Finish (great for oily skin) are both impressive. Estee Lauder's Double Wear is also pretty good.
If you're on a budget then Collection 2000s Lasting Perfection and Gosh Touch Up Concealer are excellent and even lighter than a lot of high end concealers. Both stay put for a long time too.

Girl About Town, I use the Estéé Lauder Double wear one for my blemishes, and it works great. But it's not that opaque that it would cover a terrible breakout. To cover that you would need something like the Vichy Dermablend foundation (which is apparently more like a concealer). I've never used that one but Lisa Eldridge raves about it all the time.

I've found that the new L'oreal Infalliable in Porcelain is actually pale enough and not TOO pink. Hurrah! A lasting foundation that isn't bright pink!

Bobbi Brown makes concealers so pale that I can't even use them...that is pretty pale IMO

Piz Buin suncscreens smell pretty nice. Or was that their after sun lotion? I kinda wanna try something different, but why fix it if it aint broken? hum hum.

I would recommend the same. I haven't found a concealer I like better than hers.
I suppose, I'm so pale Bobbi Brown is one of the only brands I can use.
LORAC has very fair concealers as well. I just don't care for the texture. Too tacky for me.
I've heard Becca makes great concealers and has some fair shades, but I've never seen them in person. I'm too scared to take the risk of buying online.

^Riemann P20, she mentioned it in the original post But several brands make "long lasting" sunscreens, although it's debatable how well their claims hold up.

I'd actually love a clear spray with SPF. Something you can just spray on without it ruining your makeup, and that you wouldn't need to rub in
