Foundation Faves: Mid and High End Foundation Loves11:40:00 AM
High End Foundation is one of those makeup party that I really didn't get too heavy into until about 5 years ago. Before that, I was a ride or die Revlon Color stay fan. I then ventured into MAC Studio Fix Fluid and fell in love, but over the past couple of years I have ventured out and I want to share some of my go to foundations.
Sephora Teint InfusionThis is the most recent foundation purchase that I made. This is one of most beautiful natural finish foundations I have tried in a long time. This foundation is my everyday foundation because its light to medium coverage and is really comfortable on the skin. It has a really thin consistency almost like water, but the finish is sooo pretty. I would not recommend this for people who want to cover up imperfections or need heavy coverage as it does not provide that, but it does give my skin a refreshed skin like glow.
Best Uses: Everyday, "No Makeup" Makeup
Lancome Teint IdoleTeint Idole is one of those foundations I picked up on a whim after Lupita N'yongo became the spokesperson, but the first time I put this on I fell in love. The finish is matte and gives a flawless, yet natural look to the skin. It has buildable lightweight coverage and controls oil. I wear this anytime there is a special occasion and I know i will be photographed. Although I personally would not, this foundation can be worn without powder and still be beautiful. It lasts ALL day without looking cakey or horrible. I am so sad that I broke my most recent bottle, but had to mention this as it is usually always a part of my makeup routine. For application, I like to use a large buffer brush for even application or a damp Beauty Blender to really work the Product into the skin.
Best Uses: Special Occasions, Long wear
Becca Ever Matte Shine Proof FoundationBecca is at the top of the game when it come to complexion products. They have awesome formulas and a huge shade range, making it possible for everyone to find the right match. The Ever Matte foundation is specifically made for combination to oily skin and is an excellent oil controller. I have dry skin, but the humidity in NOLA during most of the year is a beast so this is my go to for outside events. It is also supposed to minimize pore and fine lines and this totally does that for me. If you have oily skin, but want that perfected full coverage finish, you should try this out.
Best Uses: Hot, Humid Days
Mac Studio Fix Fluid| POSTI won't go overboard on how much I love this foundation, but as I mentioned above this is my favorite liquid foundation. It is my go to for when I want to look good. I wear NW45 in the fall and NW47 in the spring and summer and the color match is perfect. I have heard people talk about oxidation on this, but I do not experience that. This foundation offers full coverage without being heavy and also works well with other complexion products.
Best Uses: Date Night and any time in between
Best Uses: Special Occasions
