Top foundations for 2015:
The perfect base is hard to find but this year I have found my holy grail in foundation and it’s from the high street!
I mix and match foundations depending on my skin and when applying for clients I generally use MAC studio fix or MAC Face and Body. These are my go to foundations but I’m seriously thinking off adding a few shades from the two foundations below.
So what’s my absolute No 1 foundation for the year ….
Maybelline- Fit Me foundation – dewy and smooth
No surprise really cause I’m always raving about it. I ADORE this and have reviewed it in the past. You can read that here https://jessiekessie.wordpress.com/2015/10/18/fit-me-foundation/
Why is it so damn good?
There are 9 colours to choose from and glides on to give a smooth and natural finish. You only need a small amount of product for it to last all day. The blendable pigments leave the skin luminous and glowing. Everyone wants to glow!
Retails at around $18.95
There is also one for oily skin- Matt and Poreless. I haven’t tried this on myself or anyone else but I imagine it will be just as good.
I literally have nothing bad to say about this foundation.
No 2 is Benefit – Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow
Another favourite. This is a more expensive and can only be purchased in department stores. You will see in my past review that it took me a while to like this https://jessiekessie.wordpress.com/2015/03/18/benefit-hello-flawless-oxygen-review/
Just shows you really have to trial a product more then once. This really does brighten and hydrate a dull skin. My skin is flawless when I have this on. I use this in winter when I am pale in the shade Honey but there are 9 colours to choose from. This aims to illuminate a dull skin and is oil free. Definatley worth a try if you are in need of a different foundation and you like Benefit products. This retails at around $58
I have tried other Maybelline and Rimmel foundation during the year but these are the winners for me.
Be sure to match as close to your natural skin colour or have a darker shade for when you are wearing tan. Test the colour on your face/ jawline and not your wrist (I am very guilty of the wrist test!)
