If you are a beginning cross dresser or a transgender woman hitting the world full time, for any number of reasons, I know many of you just can't afford the pricey make up stores which are popping up everywhere. I number myself in your ranks, especially now since my make up usage has increased so dramatically.
Now when I see a site which promotes "the best of" Drugstore Foundations, I pause to take a look. It seems I always struggle with a foundation. Once I find one I believe works well (in my budget) I run into sunburn in the summer and now windburn in the winter as HRT changes my skin. Gallons of moisturizer are my best friend!
Fortunately now, in reasonable weather, I can apply light foundation no matter how I'm dressed and not look like Bruce Jenner.
I'm also lucky the super sized grocery store I shop at has a very good make up selection and they run sales all the time. I can research the product and then get even a better deal.
This site is a little older but I imagine the information is at the least, a good starting point! Check it out here.
