Everyday Foundation ♡

Hello there!

Trying out new foundations is always exciting and I love when brands come out with new ones, especially when the range includes fair shades! However I have to admit, when it comes to everyday wear I can’t help but stick to my two absolute holy-grail foundations that I know will look lovely on the skin and last the whole day and night! I have to give a mention to two foundations (well technically one is a tinted moisturiser!) as I love them both for different reasons, and wear them both for different occasions. I love wearing something light and glowy during the daytime or for an everyday makeup, but for long wear foundation for an event or special occasion where I know I’m going to be photographed, I prefer something more matte with a higher coverage. IMG_0373

Everyday wear – Perfect Potion Tinted Moisturiser in ‘Beige’

For a light foundation to wear everyday which still lets your skin shine through, I like to use this tinted moisturiser by Perfect Potion (in ‘Beige’) which also has SPF 15 to provide sun protection. It evens out my skin tone however any blemishes will show through, which I prefer for during the day as I can conceal them with my trusty concealer but the rest of my skin doesn’t look like it has tons of foundation. This tinted moisturiser has a lovely glow and after trying it on all different skin types, it seems to suit a range of tones and both dry and oily complexions. I also love this because it eliminates one more step in your makeup routine as this is a moisturiser and base all in one, I just like to put some of my Rimmel Stay Matte powder over the top and it lasts all day.

Long wear/Special occasion – L’oreal Infallible foundation in ‘Rose Beige’ (145)

This foundation is absolutely incredible for full coverage and long-lasting wear. The finish is completely matte and leaves your skin looking perfect and flawless. You only need to use a small amount of this foundation and buff it all over your face, starting with the areas you want the most coverage (usually the centre of the face). I use my Real Technique’s expert face brush and I love the finish this gives, it photographs well and looks flawless for a super long time. After powdering, I hardly ever need to touch up and reapply powder, this really is my ultimate long-wear foundation (and it’s drugstore!)

    I’ve just bought the Lóreal True Match Foundation to try but at the moment I’m using Laneige BB Cushion as my everyday foundation and it’s awesome!! I’m into the dewy skin look now and that’s what the BB Cushion does for me! ❤
