Today I thought I will do a foundation review, and show you the few foundations I have been loving. Some of these are new to my collection this year, however I have my old time favourites too.
- Bare Minerals – Original SPF 15 foundation
This has to be my all-time favourite foundation. I have loved it from day one and have been using this for quite a few years now. It will take a few tries to figure out how to use it but I guarantee this is such a great alternative to heavy liquid foundations. I found that layering it makes it look more flawless, so I use a little powder each time and work it well into the skin and repeat. It’s not only long lasting, but it does seem to have helped with the breakouts. -I use the colour fairly light
- Rimmel – Lasting finish foundation
This is one of the new liquid foundations I have loved recently. I have pretty dry skin and wanted to get a foundation that is quick to apply, unlike the bare minerals one and will not look flakey on my skin if I didn’t have time to moisturise. I actually really like this foundation, the coverage is pretty good. It is not completely full coverage but it is very buildable and does last a few hours. I wouldn’t say 24hrs but does last a while. Little tip: securing with some translucent, or even normal fixing powder will make it last much longer. I use the shade ivory which is the lightest shade with a neutral/warm undertone. Porcelain would be pink for my skin tone.
- Maxfactor- Face finity all day flawless 3 in 1 foundation
Now this is probably the most full-coverage foundation that I own. It is full coverage from the first application and does stay on exceptionally well. I do like setting my liquid foundation with a thin layer of powder, even if it is a translucent one. I really do love this foundation and use it mostly for nights out or special occasions. The Rimmel one is my everyday choice but this Maxfactor is my favourite for other times. I am in the colour warm almond, and it matches my skin perfectly.
Do you have a favourite foundation? Let me know in the comments, I would love to try out some new ones.
