Hello my lovely people.
And welcome back Winter! *eyeroll*, its getting severely cold here in Denmark. tell me about all of you? How are you guys dealing with the weather living in your state?
Okay so what is the most primal and critical part about makeup? any guesses.. Well it is your Foundation. it can either make up or break the look you are going for.
You need to buy a foundation that suits your skin type, skin color and have the texture and consistency your skin is comfortable with. I recommend you spending a little bit more on your foundation rather than any other product since that is what you are using the most and all over your face. and it has to sit there making direct contact with your skin.
With the growing makeup industry. almost every brand has came up with their Foundation, and as hard it makes for us to shop, we definitely have more options to choose from, regarding our skin conditions and needs.
- You can chose the foundation that works best for you. for example if you have dry skin, go for the foundation that is available in Liquid forms and have more tendency of moisturising.
- If you have oily skin, go for the foundation that is matte and can absorb oils from your face and help it to stay less shiny and more matte.
- If you have acne-prone skin, try to use mineral based foundations since they will not get into your pores and help it stay less irritable, and the ones that have more SPF in them to help your skin stay protected from the harsh environment.
So there will be foundation, for all your skin tyes. You just need to look for the one thats suits you the best, and gives the most flawless finish according to your needs.
How to apply foundation perfectly;
The best way I find to apply foundation, to give a natural finish is through a Damp Beauty Blender. I find that way to be my favourite since it requires less effort and does the job perfectly. Though if you want a more high-coverege look, use a good foundation brush.
These 2 are my favourite brushes to apply seamless foundation;
Here are the Foundations I have used and still use;
Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation;
My ultimate favourite foundation till date is the Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation, without any doubt, thats the foundation that gives me the full-coverage with just one layer and it has the most perfect finish. I can’t even describe how much I love that foundation. its high coverage, so I dont use it on day to day basis, I have saved it for al the events and dates with my husband, because thats when I want to feel the most comfortable and confident with my skin.
It is literally the best foundation, if you are into high coverage makeup looks. You just need to get the color that suits your skin the best and you will be ready to rock that look, after applying this foundation. this foundation will not budge until you have to remove your makeup. it is a little expensive though, so you will have to save some money before getting your hands on it.
this foundation really had been hyped a lot about, on the internet, and it was all true. Rihanna really did came up with the most creamiest textured foundation that sits on your skin really well. its consistency is smooth and rich and it blends in your skin exactly how you wish for a foundation to be.
tis foundation is Matty-fying so its best for the people with oily skin. But I have been using it for some time and I have a skin tone that is more towards the dry to combination side and its been just perfectly syncing with my skin. So its worth the buy and its not even that expensive as many other, same consistency brands. It is available is all the Sephora’s.
this foundation has also been popularised and talked about a lot. and it is perfect for people that have dry skin, its formulae is very creamy and it has water-like properties that I am not really a big fan of, plus the packaging is not what I like foundations to have. it has a open mouthed bottle, which gets the foundation to go to waste. Although you need to apply 1 layer of foundation to get seamless foundation . it applies really good and gives you a good finish which is shiny, and it removes all the blemishes which gives it a win-win situation. I mostly use it when I have to go to events for a longer period of time, because this foundation will last you through sweat and everything. It is a little expensive but I would say its justifiable.
Dior & M.A.C;
These are one of my favourite foundations that work amazingly no matter how good or bad your skin is. these foundations won’t get you down. Dior’s consistency is very creamy anti glides really well whereas M.A.C is more thick. these foundations have medium to full coverage, which can be used on day to day basis.
Dior is expensive but if you are looking for an alternate which is also drugstore priced, M.A.C will do the magic for you. M.A.C has SPF 15 which is amazing for you skin but should not be wore for flash photography since it will look shiny during night time.
I heard a lot about this foundation before buying it. its consistency and texture is very thick and coverage-wise this foundation is light to medium. I got a shade lighter than my skin tone so I was not really impressed about how this foundation worked with my tone, but it felt really good and light on skin. it does require a little effort to blend it in fully. but the result you get is really good
Maybelline Fit Me & L’oreal;
These 2 foundations are my all-time favourite. they are cheap and can be used on everyday basis by everybody. Both these foundations gives you a flawless finish with one to two layers, depending on where you are going to use it. these foundations are good for all skin-types. there texture is creamy, they are easily blend able, and they will last you a very long time. These foundations can be bought from any drugstore and they work literal magic. whether you are starting out doing makeup or you are a pro and have to use a daily foundation, these 2 will do the trick.
Do let me know how you find these!
Till then, Take care lovelies!!!
