Current Foundation Favorites
Foundation [after blush and concealer] is my favorite of makeup products. While watching YT videos, my favorite part is ALWAYS the foundation routine. I love watching skin being turned into a flawless canvas. The whole transformation side of makeup really is what makes me love it so much. Anyway, as seasons change, so does my skin. Color and texture. Right now, I would say I have combination skin. I am currently about the fairest I have ever been and have had to purchase some lighter shades of foundation to get me through the rest of winter. Here is what I am currently loving...
Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ || This has been a long time favorite. If you are looking for a matte finish, full coverage, long wearing formula, this is your girl! [I buff this out with my Sigma F80 brush.] (I wear shade 40)
Clinique Stay Matte || This makeup has a <natural matte> finish. I would consider it a medium coverage. But what I love mostly about this foundation is how perfectly it matches my skin. Clinique has a great color selection and also comes at a great price. This was the first foundation I tried after getting my skin matched with the Color IQ technology at Sephora. (I wear shade 09 Neutral)
it! Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC || Per recommendation of TiffanyD, I broke down and gave this a go! Even though this is considered a CC cream, it works for me like that of a full coverage foundation. I struggle with a lot of redness and post acne marks that don't always get covered even after foundation. This stuff really helps camouflage those issues for me. Putting an actual foundation over top is optional, but definitely not needed for everyday wear. It contains SPF 50 too! [I love applying this with a damp beauty blender.] (I wear shade Light)
Chanel Perfection Lumiere || This foundation is great for days when you want to have some coverage, but also for when you want to have more of natural finish. It blends so nicely into the skin and oddly enough, it has a great scent to it! It contains SPF 15 too. [I got colored matched at a department store and then purchased on eBay. Great way to save some money!] (I wear shade 22 Beige Rose)
I am always in the market to try new foundations. Let me know what ones you love! :)
Happy Sunday!
