Usually if you ask me to pick out my favourite products it ends up taking me hours because honestly I love everything in my collection fairly equally. But, when it comes to foundations I can pick out my must haves in seconds. There are two things I look for when it comes to foundation, the first being a natural finish and the second being it’ll last all day without fail.
My number one foundation is probably a lot of people’s number ones and that is Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. This stuff is my holy grail, unfortunately it’s also made of magic or it must be for how much it costs. This foundation is lightweight, it gives off a natural finish and two pumps of this stuff will give you a full coverage without looking cakey. As someone with very dry skin my number one fear is looking powdery and this stuff keeps me hydrated and glowing all day.
For those times I know I’ll be out having drinks or dancing the night away with friends L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte is my go to. This foundation lasts all day & night and would probably still be there in the morning if you didn’t wash it off – which I do not recommend. The coverage is thicker but a little goes a crazy long way, but it’s still very lightweight. Every time I wear this foundation I find myself staring in the mirror a little longer because I’m amazed at home great my skin looks. As I’ve said in a million posts before, if you have dry skin like me but want this foundation to work for you I recommend using the Hourglass Primer Serum beforehand.
The Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation Stick and Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer are two foundations that took a couple tries for me to love but now that I’ve perfected them I’m in love. My favourite way to apply foundation is with a big fluffy face blending brush so when that didn’t work for either of these foundations I wasn’t so sure about them. The best way I found to apply these was either with a duo fibre brush or everyone’s favourite the beauty blender! Both methods apply these foundations flawlessly giving you a medium-full coverage and a great natural finish. I also love these both for the applicators, the stick and doe-foot applicator keeps the packaging clean and travel proof.
