Foundation Most Wanted

I really want to be the girl who wears nothing on her skin, but I will admit that I love foundation. I love the way the perfect foundation makes your skin feel. I love the way my face looks after I have applied foundation, but before adding blush or bronzer. I love the magic that the right foundation can do for the way I feel. Here are 3 foundations that have been putting a little pep in my step for the past few months.

It Cosmetics CC+ Cream – Forget applying moisturizer and serum and foundation every morning. This CC Cream is all of those things in one. This cream is really thick, but don’t worry it doesn’t feel heavy. Plus you can skip a few steps, so you aren’t adding on layers. When you get a product that makes multiple promises, usually coverage takes a backseat. It Cosmetics seems to have thought of everything. This cream also provides full colour coverage. It almost makes my skin look too good.  How often can you say that?

Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation – There is nothing bad to saying about this foundation. It goes on a bit thick, but unlike some others it never feels heavy. It’s matte, so as soon as it’s dry you don’t even feel it on your skin. It can cover any discolouration, while blending into your skin, so it doesn’t look like you are wearing a lot of makeup. It lasts all day long, and even into the night, meaning I don’t have to worry about my skin.

Tarte Clay Stick Foundation – I’ve used a lot of stick foundations in the past, but this one felt different. This felt like any other luxury liquid foundation, but in stick format. When you swipe this stick on your skin, it’s that same soft feel. I definitely recommend investing in a good brush with this for serious blending. You are going to need it! I got the buffer brush from Tarte and it made a world of different. This thick formula will give you an amazing airbrush, magazine worthy finish, but it’s not a quick fix. You need to spend the time. The best part is that it’s also thick enough to be used as a concealer or even a contouring stick if you get the right shades. Bonus!

I’m really not a foundation person and if I do wear it I don’t really go for full coverage. But I love Too Faced so I really wanted to try Born This Way. I took a chance on Porcelain because a lot of the lightest shades for foundation lines are still too dark on me. And that’s where the negativity ends, because this Born This Way has completely changed my thoughts on foundation. Infused with Coconut Water, Alpine Rose and Hyaluronic Acid, this foundation not only covers every issue on my face, it’s also comfortable and hydrating.

Born This Way comes in a heavy glass bottle with a pump and bottle is the first part of why I love it. I literally need one drop of this stuff to cover my whole face (I apply with my fingers), so I’m not wasting any product. Porcelain is my perfect summer shade and I’m hoping it won’t be too dark when I get paler in the winter months. My biggest test with a full coverage foundation is applying it without a primer the first time I use it. I have pretty large pores and I hate when foundation makes them stand out more. Born This Way actually minimized them to the point where I had to look for them.

Since the first use I’ve applied it a few ways. I mixed it with moisturizer for a lighter coverage, I used it with primer. I even used a tiny bit as concealer. Each way I tried worked. And each time it lasted until I took it off, even if it was over twelve hours later. I love it so much I’ve been driving Stephanie crazy talking about it.

I finally found the foundation of my dreams. If you want to see the shade selection, you can go to the Too Faced website.
