My Favourite Foundations



I am a lover and a hoarder of foundations. I always have been. Even when I was younger and all I could afford was drugstore products, foundation was the product that I hoarded. I just love how when you get the product right and you apply it well it just makes you look so perfected and flawless. I probably have around 50 foundations in my drawer at the moment, so I thought I would let you know what my favourites are.
I will say right now that most of these are high end products. I have a lot of problem areas on my face and I just find for me that high end foundations seem to work hell of a lot better for me and seem to cover so much more. I try out a lot of foundations and I honestly think that these are the best for people with problem areas and combination to oily skin.
So, without any more rambling, I will jump into the post…



Oh, how I wish I had tried this foundation sooner. My skin has honestly never looked as good as what it does when I use this foundation. This makes my skin look nice, perfected and it covers everything that I want covering. I would say that this does apply a medium coverage but it can be very easily built up to a full coverage which is what I do. This foundation on my skin feels no different to a slick of moisturiser.  It always feels so comfortable when I wear it and just makes me look nice and healthy and not too glowing as the name of this product may suggest. I am oily and I love this foundation, so I can imagine this working really well for everybody and every skin type!


I knew that I would love this foundation because Casey Holmes the YouTuber has always loved it and that means that I would love it. We seem to have a similar skin type, so the things that she loves tends to become my holy grails, including this foundation. I love this foundation because of the coverage that it gives. I only have to use the smallest amount of this foundation and it covers everything with a light feeling. Don’t get me wrong, this is a foundation which is on the thick end, but it doesn’t feel like that on the skin. I can see myself having one of these foundations in my draw for a very long time indeed!


I knew the moment that I saw this foundation being splashed all over YouTube and Instagram that I wanted to try it out. I have always loved a good stick foundation, so that mixed with a full coverage product, it just had my name wrote all over it. I first bought it from Space NK and I have to say that I just didn’t fall in love with it the way that I thought it would. But, then I started to moisturise my skin before using it and that is when this foundation really started to work its magic. This just glides on the skin so smoothly and it blends out like a dream, whether it be with a sponge or a brush, it is just incredible. I have so many different shades in this now because I love it for all my levels of tan-ness and for highlighting and contouring with. Just an incredible foundation.


I wanted to try this foundation for years before I bit the bullet and bought it. I thought with it having the word luminous in the title that it just wouldn’t work with my oily skin tone. But I was wrong, just because this product makes the skin look healthy with a nice glow, doesn’t mean that it adds excess oil to the skin. I just wish that I had tried this out sooner. I know that when I reach for this foundation that I am going to get a nice lightweight but full coverage looks. It looks great in photographs and is just so nice and comfortable to wear on the skin, especially when I am going to be wearing a full face of makeup all day long. This is a pricey foundation, but I really do believe that it is worth every single penny.  


When I first got this foundation, I will admit, I really wasn’t sure about it. It took me a fair while to actually fall in love with it. I did think initially that it was too sheer for me. I like a very full coverage glam, and this I would say is medium but blendable. It took me a while to get used to it but now I am obsessed with it. For an everyday makeup look for work or just for running errands, then this is the perfect foundation. It literally takes two minutes to apply and blend out and it helps to even my skin tone without covering every little freckle, which I don’t feel the need to do every single day. This is just a great, lightweight, medium coverage foundation.
There you have it, my favourite foundations. I can guarantee that these are the foundations that I will use on a daily basis. I know when I use these foundations that my skin is going to look really perfected, flawless and it is going to last all day long without melting off my face or making me look like an oil slick!

  5. I haven't tried any of these but I would love to try the Nars one. I don't use a foundation every day, I prefer lighter options as a BB cream for every day use but my next purchase would be the Ordinary serum foundation.
