What's your foundation?

You’d be surprised at how much a good foundation can change your whole look. With a new season beginning, you are probably going to be in the search of a new foundation because skin is always changing. Whether it’s going from dry to oily or pale to tan, the change in season is a great excuse to go shopping for a new foundation. The problem with shopping for a foundation is that it’s hard to choose one from all the different types out there. So here are my top three favorite foundations that I’ve been using for quite some time now.

  1. Clinique Acne Solution Liquid Foundation: This is my top favorite foundation that I’ve been a fan of for about two years now. I originally heard of it through some YouTube videos and went to try it on for myself because I have struggled with acne for years. It’s amazing! Super light on the skin and doesn’t clog up your pores. It has medium coverage to hide acne, but also treats your skin as well. I usually wear this foundation when my skin is giving me a hard time. It doesn’t irritate the skin, plus it’s not too expensive for only $27.

  2. Makeup For Ever Professional Mat Velvet: If you want good coverage then I highly recommend this foundation. It is very close to tying in with first place because it looks extremely nice on, and is great for oily skin! It lasts all day, so it’s perfect for a hard day of work. The price ($36) is a little higher, but it’s definitely worth it. Not to mention this foundation always looks perfect in pictures.

  3. Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Foundation: This foundation is not necessarily cheap ($45), but it feels so smooth and perfect on the skin. Not only does it last all day, it does not look cakey at all. The only down part to it is that it is light coverage, but it’s great for when you want to go a little lighter on your makeup. Also, pairing it up with a really good concealer can solve your coverage problem. Overall, I really like this foundation and definitely recommend it for any skin type.
