Any recommendations? And any tips to avoid cakeyness? Its been irritating me -_-
I dont really want to spend that much on make up brands (e. g. NARS, Too faced, etc..)

I have dry to combination skin. I know you said you don't want to spend a lot but out of all the foundations I've tried, Too Faced Born This Way foundation looks the best on me. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation is good too.
As for drugstore foundations, I really like L'oreal true match. Did you try the original or the Lumi? I like the Lumi version better as it looks more radiant and it's not patchy on me at all. It's actually the only drugstore foundation I've found that I like. Lol I also apply my foundation with a beauty blender (Real Techniques has a makeup sponge that is good too, and more affordable) which is AMAZING and gives a very nice, blended look. I like it better than any foundation brush I've tried.
Make sure you are exfoliating your skin. If you have dry patches like me, I need to use a facial scrub at least once a week to help even out and smooth my skin which helps with makeup application. Using a good cleanser and moisturizer works wonders as well. Priming the skin is also very important so you want to make sure you're using a good face primer as well.
