Another make-up question

Ugh. I feel crappy today. Slept great but woke up with a stuffy nose and sore throat, which turned over the course of the morning into headache (specialty: sinus pain), neckache, full body ache, inability to focus, and general exhaustion. Of course, part of that could be due to the fact that my body decided I should start my period about 5 days early this cycle: i.e., TODAY. *sigh*

Back in October I asked my flist gals about mineral foundation vs. "regular" liquid foundation, and got a lot of positive responses, especially about the Physician's Formula brand. I'm ready to switch over now that the holidays have ended and I shall feel better about experimenting with new stuff.

A couple of questions:

1) I've actually found over the past couple of months (for the first time in my life) that I need to wear facial moisturizer. And being that I live in Los Angeles, one with sunscreen would be best. Anyone have a good recommendation? I'm using a sensitive skin Neutrogena sunscreen-+-moisturizers at the moment.

1a) A couple of people mentioned using the mineral powder over a tinted moisturizer. Is that just for if you've got a darker complexion or want the "sun-kissed" look? Because I am quite pale, my face never tans, and all the tinted stuff I've seen in the stores looks like it's for a darker look than I'd want.

2) I'm going to still need some kind of concealer, unless this mineral stuff works miracles and I never break out again. Anyone know if the PF concealer works well? Or of another one that might be good for me to try?

Thanks, y'all! :-)
