Recommended Foundations

One of the most popular questions about make up... what foundation would you recommend? Believe me, I have tried them ALL! I have super oily skin so I have literally tried every foundation going for combination and oily skin... well, nearly all of them. 

I have put together my recommendations for all dry, normal and oily skin. 

DRY SKIN

 

1. Bourjouis Healthy Mix Foundation 

This foundation is great for a flawless look. It locks in the moisture that your skin needs and gives you a lovely glow. It smells really good as well - which is a bonus!

2. Nars Sheer Glow

Another glowing foundation which leaves the skin looking super smooth. Great for dry and normal skin types. It has a buildable coverage.

3. MAC Cosmetics - Prep & Prime BB Beauty Balm

If you don't want a lot of coverage but want your skin looking radiant, then this is the foundation for you. It is great for mature skin and won't sink in to any fine lines. 

 

NORMAL SKIN

1. Make Up Forever HD Foundation

This HD foundation creates a flawless coverage and creates a lovely glowy look. It is an oil free foundation and has a medium coverage which is buildable!

2. Urban Decay - Naked Skin

This foundation makes your skin look natural, illuminated and bright. It literally doesn't feel like you have anything on your face.

3. MAC Studio Fix

Everyone's favourite! Mac Studio Fix foundation. It provides a matte finish with a medium to full coverage which is buildable. Definitely comfortable and long wearing. 

OILY SKIN

 

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear

This is the only foundation that will stay on all day for oily skin. Yes, it is a thick foundation but with the right moisturiser and primer, it looks flawless. Highly recommended for a full coverage and oily skin. 

2. NARS All day Luminous Weightless Foundation 

16 hour wear foundation with a full coverage. A great alternative to the Estee Lauder double wear in my opinion. It is indeed weightless on the skin. 

3. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

I normally mix a tiny bit of double wear with this foundation to create that staying power. It gives the most amazing glow and looks flawless. One of the best foundations I've tried!
