Flawless Foundation Favorites

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

My favorite part of doing my makeup is hands down foundation. I love complexion products! I feel like once I have my foundation on, the whole look starts coming together. Before we get started, my skin type is normal to oily. But I did include different foundations for everyone. Wether you like light-med, full coverage, matte or natural finish, long-wearing, I got something for you! I hope having this all in one place is helpful, so the next time your at Sephora/Ulta or Target you can pull this up for reference. Let’s start!

1. e.l.f. BB Cream SPF 20 $6 (Shade: Beige)

This B.B. cream is amazing! Medium to full coverage, but so lightweight and hydrating. I personally like to apply with my fingers then finish with a damp blender to blend it all in. It’s infused with ingredients like cucumber, Aloe,Jojoba and Vitamin E. So easy to put on and makes your skin look good and healthy. If you have oily skin, definitely set your t-zone because it does have a dewy finish.

2.L’Oréal infallible Fresh Wear 24HR foundation $14.99 (Shade: #460)

This foundation claims to be 24HR wear, I haven’t worn this foundation for that long haha but I have it worn it for 12hrs straight. Let me just say it is very long wearing. Especially paired with the right primer, you are good to go. What I like about it is that it’s lightweight, and gives your skin such a healthy look. It’s also medium to full buildable coverage with a natural finish. This foundation is SO good! Must try to see for yourself.


3.L.A. Girl Pro.Matte Longwear Foundation $8.99 (Shade: Medium Beige)

This foundation is a great option if you prefer a soft matte finish. It’s long wearing, lightweight and easily medium to full coverage. I love how even though it’s a matte finish, it looks very natural on the skin and not drying at all. Has the prettiest soft airbrushed matte finish. Great for oily skin! Make sure your skin is well hydrated before using it, that’s key with a matte foundation.

4.EX1 Cosmetics Invisiwear Liquid Foundation $16.70 (Shade: 5.0)

This is my All-time favorite foundation! I’ve been using this for years. Leaves my skin looking so healthy and youthful. Every time I wear this foundation, I get a ton of compliments on my skin. It’s lightweight, buildable and super blendable. It has a very natural radiant finish, which is so pretty! It is oil and fragrance free. There’s just something about this foundation that always has me going back to it.

5.Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation $35 (Shade:240)

This foundation offers 50 shades, so there is bound to be a Shade for you. Now, I think this foundation is super comparable to the L.A. Girl Soft Matte Foundation. This foundation also has a soft matte finish. It’s very long wearing, I would say probably more than the L.A. Girl one, but the finishes are the same, it’s also medium to full coverage. You can put one even layer on for great coverage, if you do another layer I do feel like it can get cakey so be careful. I should also mention, it does oxidize a shade darker so try a shade lighter and it should work for you.


6.Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation $43 (Shade: Tawny)

Now this is a amazing foundation! Bride to be, bridesmaid, special event? Try this!

Talk about long wearing, this foundation is not going to budge. This foundation gives a flawless natural matte finish. Don’t be scared of the word matte, I know it can sound drying almost. It’s hard to explain the finish, but it’s just the perfect amount of matte & natural. It dries down totally different than the Fenty Matte foundation. It’s really perfect! Gives you full coverage and lasts all day long.


7.MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation $33 (Shade: NC30 & NC35)

This foundation is a holy grail of mine! You really can’t go wrong with this foundation plus I feel like it’s fairly priced. My favorite thing about this is not only is it medium to full coverage but I love adding in a face cream or MAC Strobe Cream, for light coverage & hydrating finish. It’s the prettiest! If your a bride, bridesmaid, or just love a full coverage longwearing foundation, try this! Blends very easily, and controls oils which is amazing for oily skin. I almost never have to touch up when I wear this. It’s also amazing for those hot humid summer days, because it’s sweat and humidity resistant. This has been part of my collection for years and always will be!


 

Ok that’s a wrap! These are my top favorite foundations, all that I currently own. I really love these all for different reasons. Now don’t feel like you need all these foundations because you don’t. I just love wearing different foundations and having the option everyday to wear something different depending on what I’m looking for. I hope this has helped you hopefully figure out what foundation would be best for you.
