On of my top makeup products that I couldn't live without is my foundation. It hides a multitude of sins and leaves you with a flawless finish... What more could a girl ask for. I'm not usually one to have tonnes of base products but thought I would share some of my all time favourite foundations.
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix - This foundation has been in my collection for a good number of years now (obviously not the same one) ever since it used to be in its old plastic packaging but was replaced by a more sleek glass bottle and also better formula. The radiance reveal healthy mix foundation is the perfect everyday, drugstore foundation. It gives my skin a medium coverage and leaves a dewy, radiant finish. It also lasts all day on my skin without going patchy which I found the old formula used to start going patchy after a number of hours. I have the shade #54 Beige and I highly recommend this foundation if you are looking for an everyday drugstore product that leaves you with radiant skin.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation - I remember purchasing this foundation about 6 years ago after noticing how fab my friends skin looked and she recommended this foundation. Unlike Bourjois Healthy Mix I find this doesn't leave a dewy finish but more of a natural finish without being matte or cakey on the skin. This product helps to even out my skin tone without masking it completely so it looks really natural.
I have the shade D3.W3 Golden Beige and this foundation has a medium coverage which is buildable for a made-to-measure finish. It also contains SPF 17.
Clinique Even Better - One of my all time favourite Clinique foundations was Repairwear but this is a full coverage foundation and I found it started to mask my skin a little too much, so I decided to try out Even Better instead. This foundation provides a medium-full coverage without masking the skin too much. It's super light on the skin and leaves skin looking brighter and more radiant. This product also helps to even skin tone and contains SPF 15 to prevent future uneven skin tone.
In Clinique Even Better I have the shade 05 Neutral.
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua - This is one of my most recent additions to my foundation collection after seeing so many beauty guru's rave about it. This is such a super light foundation and after shaking it, it literally glides onto the skin without any effort. I'd say this product gives a more light-medium finish but the finish is unlike any foundation I have tried before. It leaves your skin looking super fresh, dewy and it also evens out my skin tone. My skin looks super radiant yet natural and it lasts all day on my skin too. It also contains SPF 15 to protect your skin from damaging rays and I have the shade 30 Beige.
This really is a bottle of perfection.
And finally it would be rude not to mention one of my all time favourite foundation brushes that I apply ALL of my foundations with... The Sigma Flat Kabuki F80. This brush makes life so much easier to apply my foundation as it buffs it into the skin with minimal effort. If you are looking for a foundation brush then I highly recommend this one.
