How do I make my foundation look more natural for school?
Try applying it with a wet sponge, or mixing your foundation with moisturiser to sheer it out (this is how you make tinted moisturiser)
This might be of use to you, I just made a tutorial on a no makeup-makeup look, there might be some tips there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-zI...
I think the brand of makeup you use really matters,why not try AVON PRODUCTS,they are really nice and gives you that matte finish you desire.
Using the Beauty Blender gives my foundation a much more natural finish. I love it.

A lil secret for well blending foundation >>> I put a little bit of sunscreen and blend it in with my tinted moisturiser. Half as much sunscreen as foundation. Then rub it on the back of your hand and use a sponge to dab it on. Remember to wash your hands afterwards! :)
The one rule I have is: less is more!
You don't need a crap ton of foundation. You just don't. I was using so much foundation once upon a time, and when I discovered the ELF Powder Brush, all of that stopped. I apply my foundation with this brush and stipple it on. I use 1-2 pumps of MUFE's HD Foundation, and my coverage is amazing. My skin looks flawless with it! It's all in the application and what works for you. =]
You could switch to BB creams or tinted moisturizers but if you want to stick with your normal foundation honestly use less and focus your powder on your T zone! it makes a huge difference in my opinion!

A tinted moisturizer or light coverage foundation with a translucent setting powder is all you need for a natural look. Finish with a dust of rose colored blush, few coats of mascara and lipgloss and you're good to go! Check out my Fresh Natural Everyday look for a step by step tutorial:
spray some Fix+ spray from MAC all over your face after your done with your makeup routine. the Fix+ spray softens up the makeup giving it a much more natural look to it.

Mix your foundation with a moisturizer for your own tinted moisturizer, this gives a more natural/sheer look. I apply this with a stippling or powder brush. Remember to use powder to set your foundation as well, but you don't need to OVER-powder your face. Also, if you don't own one, invest in a highlighter! I prefer liquid or cream highlighters and I put it on the high points of my cheek bones and a bit on my brow bone to make my skin look more dewy and natural rather than completely matte.
I use the same technique as Lacey A. mentioned above. I use a powder brush with my MUFE HD foundation. I feel it gives me just enough coverage without feeling like I'm wearing way too much foundation. I also sometimes mix it a little with moisturizer or face primer. I try to focus it on my problem areas, i.e. redness on my cheeks or undereye bags, so the rest of my face will have light coverage.
