MY TOP 4 FOUNDATIONS

October 30, 2017

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

I’m very excited about sharing with you my favourite foundations, because I came a long way of trying so many of them to finally still coming back to those 4 particular products. I’m sure some of you still struggle to find your fave and I hope this post maybe will help you with finding the one!

My skin and I came a very long way of struggling through full of acne, red, oily teenage face and very dry complexion to mixed and sensitive. Throughout that journey I had my favorites for every condition my skin was in. Now I found the perfect 4 for the skin I have today and I’d like to share them with you!

I find those products are perfect for my skin today. My skin is usually quite dry and I need to take a very good care about moisturising it all the time. It’s also quite sensitive and gets oily in my T zone (specially nose area) throughout the day. The oiliness it’s not my biggest problem which can be easily eliminated by using a tiny bit of powder, by special oil absorbing tissues or for bigger events setting spray. Since I have few ways to win the oiliness my priority in picking good foundation is to make sure it won’t dry out my skin. I hate foundations that exaggerate my dried little skins even after moisturising the area. I cant’ stand when the make up looks cakey on my skin either so I usually go for light/medium coverage and then just treat my dark circles and some stronger discolourations or pimples with concealer. Although probably you still can see some of my imperfections, with this kind of coverage I feel more fresh, more confident and more natural.

MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation Nowadays, definitely my number one! I was quite sceptic while buying this foundation, because of its very light coverage. What I’ve learnt, after watching few YouTube tutorials on applying it, the secret is in warming it up in your hands before applying it. This way it has more coverage and sticks better to the skin. It’s very buildable without the mask effect. It’s just everything I wished for! It looks like my skin but way better! I don’t need to use much concealer after applying it and it definitely doesn’t leave my skin dry but gives it a gorgeous satin glow! I highly recommend to anyone with a similar skin type to mine and who likes super natural, light to medium coverage with no makeup effect! It looks bomb!

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 is everything if you’re looking for this perfect photoshopped look with a satin/matte finish. Daily I use it as concealer (after my MAC foundation) and a little goes a long way! Used as foundation it never let me down on the days when I want to look flawless without heavy coverage. It’s also buildable and blends very well. Smells heavenly and it feels like a touch of luxury to your face.

Reviews of the next two foundations you saw in my previous posts that’s why I’m not gonna repeat myself and just link their reviews down here:

BB CreamBB Original Extra Light (buy here)

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (buy here)

 

Is one of them your fave too? Let me know your top 4 (or 3,2,1, 100) in the comments below! I’m very curious to try different foundations as well!

    Garnier was not my favorite when I tried it, it kinda oxidized and created an oily mess, you should really try the YSL All Hours if you love Chanel’s. You will thank me! Great post!

    I used to massively have oily and spotty skin and struggled with loads of ones, either getting them to stay on or then making my skin worse. I now absolutely love the Arbonne liquid foundation because it’s got vitamin e in it and has good coverage without being cakey! Xx

    Ooo I haven’t tried any of these – will have to check them out! At the moment I am using YSL’s Touche Eclat foundation. Another favourite of mine is the Laura Mercier Illuminated Tinted Moisturiser – love the lower coverage of this!

    I’m currently using tarte Amazonian clay foundation. I like it so far! I’ve always been a Mac user but curiosity got the best of me! But another great BB cream is Flower beauty (you can find it at Walmart). When they say full coverage they are not kidding!

    I tried the Garnier BB Cream a long time ago and it oxidized like crazy on my skin 🙁 I love my Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation, CoverGirl Healthy Elixir foundation and the It Cosmetics CC+ cream! I definitely want to try the Chanel foundation you listed above though…maybe I’ll break down and get it for myself for Christmas! Great post! xo

      thank you so much for sharing Brittney! and about the garnier bb cream, i went for extra light and maybe it’s a new formula or something but it doesn’t oxidize on my face that much. but who knows what is the secret! haha xx
