This has been my go to powder foundation for years. It can be applied lightly for sheer coverage or built up to full, has never irritated my extremely sensitive skin and NW10 is the perfectly shade for my fair skin. I have combo-dry skin and I prep well with moisturizer and the Make Up Forever Skin Booster, apply concealer if needed and then use a powder brush to apply whatever level of coverage I want. I always finish with setting spray which takes away the powdery look, melts everything into my skin and makes it last all day. I think any skin type can wear it but I do suggest that those with dry skin prep well beforehand with moisturizer. Highly recommended!
