Its bad i know, but i seem to have an obsession with finding the 'perfect foundation',
I like my skin to look even, clear and flawless because in my mind, if your skin is flawless, everything else looks great.
No matter how much pennies it costs me, i will pay...you cant put a price on gorgeous skin, right?
I'm always on the search for that 'better' foundation, my latest lemming is Guerlein's Lingerie de Peau.
Better start saving then.
My 'Summer foundations' such as Mac Face and body and Revlon photoready have been retired to the back of my makeup drawer and out come the winter ones.
My skins been playing up quite bad recently, i think it is because of the sudden change in weather. The past week ive woken up with dry patches and blotchy red skin (...attractive). So i'm needing abit more coverage and moisture then normal.
So these are my favourite foundations that i'm reaching for and loving at the moment:
Mac Moistureblend NW20
Ive been using this foundation alot on days where my skins been really parched needs moisture. the names in the title, Its one of the most moisturising foundations i have tried(...verging on maybe being a bit too moisturising?)
I love it anyways, it's medium coverage and can be built up to very full coverage without being cakey, You need to set it with powder though, or it will just slide right off.
This will be a must for me this winter.
DiorSkin Nude 02 Light Beige
I was really hesitant to splurge on this as the assistant at Dior said it was quite sheer...I went ahead and got it anyway - Sheer?! yes its liquidy but NOT sheer.
It covered all my redness and made my skin look so fault-free. It consists of quite a high percentige of water so its really soothing on my skin and hydrating. I find this foundation just sinks right into the skin, it does not rest on top of the skin like most foundations do and it leaves a fairly dewy finnish. I wore this on a night out and a friend said my skin looked 'airbrushed and glowing'. Thank you DiorSkin Nude haha.
Nars sheer Glow Mont blanc
This is neither sheer or neither does it glow. Its actuially medium coverage to full and rather matte - well, more a 'satin' finnish.
The finnish is beautiful though, it really evens out my skintone nicely with the smallest amount and looks like skin. You can tell the quiality of this foundation as no matter how many layers you build up, it wont go cakey. It blends like a dream also, you could just throw it on and it would look beautiful. I fell in love with this as soon as i used it!
I cant describe the finnish though, but its gorgeous.
Mac Studio Fix NW20
This is a tad dark for me so i mix it with a tiny bit of NW15.
This foundation is the thickest of them all, (...So thick, i had to buy i pump!)and the highest coverage...Its also has a very matte finnish, so i usually mis in some sort of illuminator to make it more dewy. I wear this on days when my skin is VERY uneven and its the one that i have repurchased the most. I think ive gone though about 3 bottles of this stuff. amazing! Will always have a bottle of this in my collection.
Revlon Colourstay Buff
The cheapest out of the lot at around £10. This really works just aswell as studio fix with its finnish, its fairly matte so i use an illuminator with it. I always wear this when i'm not doing much but my skin needs *something* on it.
Its fairly high coverage, more then all the others, but a little less then studio fix.
(they all sook so dark here for some reason?)
Left to right - Moistureblend, DiorSkin, Sheer Glow, Studio Fix, Colourstay
& the winner is...
Nars sheer glow. For the simple reason that is it FAB.
Oh, i also wanted to sneak in a NOTD in there ;)
I'm wearing Models Own Grey Day - LOVE this colour! Its the most perfect grey-ey blue ive found.
Can anyone reccomend me a good, full coverage foundation to try?
Whats your favourite?
