Looking for natural makeup

I've been searching for a good natural foundation for a loooong time now and have had zero luck.  I've tried about six different mineral makeup companies, including Larenim, Aromaleigh, and  Everyday Minerals.  None of them worked well at all- for some reason they don't cover my large pores and the moment I start to sweat the foundation starts to slide.  Also, they seem to make my face break out.  :(  I've also tried Zia foundation, but none of their colors are light enough for me.  I'm very pale.  I've noticed that most natural foundations have oil in them, which doesn't work for me because I have horribly oily skin.  Ugh. 
So, lovely ladies, any suggestions for a girl who wants to be good to her body but also look good at the same time? 
Many thanks!!

I wear bare minerals and it works wonders for me... and I am very pale myself too  ;D

being pale and looking for non-pore clogging make up is hard! at the sally beauty supply shop near my house i found quite a bit of all natural make-up. i only purchased some black onyx organic mineral eyeshadow. i saw a few different types of all natural powders, concealers, and blushes. (can that be pluralled???) i bought the lightest shade of "dream matte mousse" and it still gives me an orangish hue. i hate how concealer gives your face the crusty look.  >:(

I am a fan of bare minerals. Its great, however, once my supply runs out I'm going to have to fins something else because bare minerals does have pearls in it.

Where did you find this out?  I specifically asked the manufacturers about this and they said it did not.  Maybe they've changed?

hum it was on another vegan message board...I'll see if I can find out more over the next few days and let you know! If it turns out it is vegan...I'll be so happy! If its not- then I'm disgusted with them for lying to you!

I just spoke with a customer service rep and she said there are no pearls in them, or seashells or anything...and she read me a bunch of ingredients but there were too many, too fast. They really need to put that stuff  their website.I don't even know what most of them are...for example, maybe pearls have a more scientific name? she listed all pretty scientific sounding names that i did not recognize. Also, i wonder if any of it could be  derivative of pearls, seashells, ick..even bone char...

they do not test on animals.So that is good. It really is a super product. I love it. It would be nice if they are 100 percent vegan...maybe someone else should call, someone with more science knowlege?
