Wooo, it’s hot!
Are you sweating your foundation off yet, changing it for the summer? Most of us find it hard to find the right foundation that suits our skin. Maybe we know the shade that fits our skin tone but our skin types might not be compatible with the foundation.
Fret not my dears, that’s why I’m here giving you a list of wonderful foundations that your skin might love.
1. Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation
2. Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid
Foundation, this foundation is amazing. It should be worn with a really moisturized skin and use a little bit goes a long way. One pump gets the entire face. It has a primer built into it so you don’t have to wear one. Some people might not like this but a lot love their Seamless Finish Foundation Stick. This foundation is gorgeous! If you usually hate how foundation sticks are stiff and hard to blend, well this one is different. It blends like a dream and it wears so nicely throughout the day. If you have normal/dry skin, visible pores, uneven skin tone, and texture, with lots of freckles, this foundation will do an excellent job masking all of that while still making your skin look like skin. (You know what I mean. lol) It blends in so easily, even with just your fingers.
3. Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Foundation
I own a KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Tattoo Foundation and I personally love it. In fact, this foundation is a definite staple in my collection.
This foundation does a great job with keeping oil at bay throughout the day and it also doesn’t accentuate any dryness that you may have— it’s nice and matte. I’ve often put it on at 6 am and it still looks fresh at dinner. I do not need a concealer with this foundation — in fact, it’s the only foundation or concealer I’ve found that does not crease under my eyes. It stays smooth and crease-less under my eyes all day long.
But if you want something that looks natural and not a full coverage girl like me, this is not for you. Even lightly applied, this foundation looks like you are wearing makeup.
4. Tom Ford Traceless Foundation
I love Tom Ford products, but we’re gonna talk about their foundation in particular of course. lol. Their Traceless Foundation Stick is amazing! It’s a good buy for $88 believe me it’s worth it! Most of us may associate foundation sticks with cakey face, but with this foundation, it’s not cakey at all. And what’s more amazing is that a little goes a long way, and it stays on your face for the entire day.
Their Traceless Foundation SPF15 is just as amazing as their foundation stick. At a price of $88, it’s a great buy! I love its coverage. It is easy to apply and it diffuses very easily, and it is long-lasting. If you have mixed skin, its coverage is the best for you, it hides all imperfections. It also has sunscreen and it leaves skin radiant, illuminated, and more rejuvenated.
5. And 6. Giorgio Armani
Next is Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Full Coverage Liquid Foundation and Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation. Their Power Fabric Full Coverage Liquid
Foundation has great coverage with a dewy sheen. Perfect when used over a primer. A little pricey but WORTH the cost. It doesn’t feel like you have any foundation on your face! It doesn’t oxidize, which will make you even like the foundation even more. Has a lovely skin-like finish and lasts all day even on combination/oily skin.
Their Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation is inspired by charmeuse silk, “The Fabric of Emperors,” this luminous foundation glides on weightlessly for a flawless lit-from-within glow. Yes, it is expensive but it is weightless and full coverage which is a crazy amazing combination that is why this is hands down absolutely worth the money.
7. And 8. Charlotte Tilbury
Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation and Airbrush Flawless are also awesome! Magic Foundation has a matte finish but not flat with full coverage, goes on lovely, blends well, and feels so lightweight on. Goes on smooth and doesn’t sit on top of pores. Their Airbrush Flawless smells amazing!
Well the foundation itself is amazing, but I felt like I needed to emphasize the smell. lol. I love it that a little goes a long way for sure with the full coverage foundation! It does recommend letting it set to see true color but it’s beautiful and makes skin look flawless.
9. Rodan Fields Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid
This one is your skincare and your make up at the same time. Lol. It is light and buildable, oil-free, and doesn’t clog your pores. It’s a derma cosmetic so you will have properties that will help work on skin redness. Can’t get better than this for daily coverage. But as advised you should still wear a layer of SPF even though this liquid does have SPF.
If you are not up for this pricey foundation, I’ve got you, girl! You can also try these budget-friendly foundations!
10. Revlon color stay 24 hours
Revlon Colorstay 24 hours is one of the great drugstore foundations. It has a soft natural hydrating matte finish! If you have dry textured skin, this is so natural and lightweight. Oily to combo and dry to combo you’ll like it both. It just depends on your skin. When you used the oily if you have oily skin, you’ll love the matte finish, and if you have dry skin, you’ll love the hydrating matte finish even better.
11. Phoera foundation
This foundation is actually refreshingly good! It stays on all day, and it has really good coverage. The only issue I have is that when it dries down, it’s impossible to blend a stick or liquid contour, so you have to work fast. Overall, it’s a great product, especially if you’re on a budget!
12. Best Primer Ever!
Now let’s talk about primers. Some may not know why we should use primers, Primer basically fills in the pores, blurs our blemishes, and gives smoothness to the skin. Think of primer as a base which gives the makeup something to adhere to. It protects the skin by acting as a barrier and also helps makeup to last longer.
One of the primers that I use and love is Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer
Tatcha started when Victoria Tsai, the founder of Tatcha, while on a trip to Kyoto discovered a world of pure beauty, craftsmanship, and heritage, and an encounter with a modern-day geisha changed her life. An encounter that leads her to create Tatcha. She learned classical Japanese beauty secrets passed down by generations that took a different approach to skincare – that less is more.
Now, what makes this primer feel special from the get-go is that it comes with a small disk for application. My favorite thing about the primer is how big the payoff is for so little product application. Its ability to blur away pores is also immediate. I tried using it over a big blemish once, and although the primer didn’t completely conceal it, it definitely helped fade the redness. The same can be said for my sometimes dark eye circles—the primer helps dull them and brightens up my under eye area. It’s also so lightweight it barely feels like anything is on.
I’d almost forget if it weren’t for every time I look in the mirror, I’m amazed by how bright and airbrushed my skin looks. It’s like the Paris filter comes to life.
After religiously applying The Silk Canvas Primer every day, I noticed that people started to compliment me even MORE and MORE on my “natural glow” and “perfect skin.” And though I’m lucky to have never had problematic skin, I’m always quick to point out the look isn’t completely natural and that primer really isn’t BS. Well, at least Tatcha’s isn’t.
I hope this list helped you up to find the right foundation that your skin will love. And remember that primer is important before applying foundation. lol.
Stay Beautiful and Fabulous girls!
