Facing Foundations

Finding a foundation that is a perfect colour match, has full coverage and is not oily/drying is not as easy as it sounds. In the process of finding your dream foundation you are likely to try a few that may or may not hit the mark and tick all the boxes needed for a perfect foundation. I have tried a lot of different foundation and I have found three that I think tick the most boxes in terms of a perfect foundation.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h – This is a foundation that has secured itself a permanent place in my makeup collection. I don’t have bad skin so on a side note I should mention that this foundation is better for clearer skin. This is because this foundation is lightweight and small to medium coverage. The best thing about this foundation is that is very buildable and there is a large colour range so you are highly likely to find your shade (1 box already ticked) The consistency of this liquid is quite thick but blends out very easily, evening out the skin tone to give a natural ‘no makeup’ look. This foundation will last for ages so although a tad pricey, in my opinion, definitely worth it.

Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation – This foundation is the newest to my collection but definitely deserves its spot in the top three. The staying power of this is amazing – lasting for at least 8 hours with minimal touching up needed. The foundation brightens the complexion of your skin and gives it a natural, healthy looking glow. It is also very easy to apply and will not transfer onto clothes etc. I think the only glitch to this otherwise amazing foundation is the price. I think the price is a little unreasonable because of how much foundation needed to achieve medium coverage. But that being said, if you are in the mood to treat yourself I would recommend trying this out!

Jemma Kidd Light as Air Liquid Foundation – Unfortunately, this foundation has been discontinued. Luckily, I still have a bottle from a while ago and you are still able to buy this online, off amazon or ebay. This foundation is often raved about and here is why: this foundation has amazing staying power lasting for the whole day. This foundation’s name does not lie in that is is incredibly light weight and comfortable on your skin. Wearing this foundation will give you a flawless complexion. It smoothed my pores and blemishes giving me that photoshopped look. I have never broken out from this either which is always a plus.

So those are 3 foundations that I will always love and tick the most of my ‘perfect foundation’ boxes. What are your favourite foundations? Leave a comment below! xx
