Hey babes! Here with another part of my stash tour, last time I showed you my foundation primers so I thought it would make sense to show you my foundation stash today!
I’ve divided them in to categories to show you, I like all of these products, I just prefer some over others, they all have great qualities and different colours, so I have something for different occasions and for the different seasons.
- Matte foundations
These two foundations are mostly matte but aren’t that long lasting that I can wear them for a night out for example. The Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation is extremely matte and beautiful but it starts shifting after a long day, it also oxidizes a little bit so if you’re in doubt, go lighter. The W7 HD Foundation is also a great matte foundation for day to day use, but it fades a little or shifts if you sweat.
If I want something that is matte and lasts much longer, for an event or a party or even just a long day, I like using one of these foundations. The Chanel Perfection Lumière makes my skin look so flawless and the shade is very light, so perfect during winter. The MaxFactor Face Finity is a 3 in 1 product, it stays put all day and night and really covers every imperfection, it doesn’t look very natural in daylight though. The Catrice All Matt plus is a great matte product that I love wearing when going out at night because it barely has any flashback and stays on quite well, even if you sweat.
When my skin is feeling a little dry due to acne treatments, I like having a moisturizing foundation on hand, this is what I prefer to use if I go out during the day. The MAC Studio Waterweight is super easy to blend in and has pretty good coverage, it’s quite oily so you definitely need to powder. The ELF Moisturizing stick is a great high coverage foundation that doesn’t dry out your skin. And the Bourjois Healthy Mix is a great, light coverage foundation that evens out your complexion.
- BB Creams
For going to school or work, I prefer something more lightweight like a BB Cream. The Tea Tree BB Cream from The Body Shop is a great daily BB cream, it’s medium coverage and feels and looks very natural, it’s also great for acne skin. The Dream Pure BB By Maybelline is what I love wearing in summer because it’s quite dark, it also looks very glowy. The ELF BB Cream has SPF 20 and has light coverage. The Naked Skin One and Done is more of a CC cream, I love using it as a base before applying a higher coverage powder.
Of course, I have my favorites, and it’s these 4. The Chanel for higher coverage during the day, the MAC for dry skin days. The Body Shop BB for day to day use and the Catrice foundation for going out at night. These four are all easy to apply, are medium to high coverage and last really well!
