My 5 Faves || Foundations + BB Creams

Friday, August 22, 2014

Foundation is the base for your whole makeup look, and I believe it's the most important part. If you have a bad base (or no base at all) it will keep your face from looking flawless. On that same note, having a good base is sometimes all you need for the day and you won't even have to worry about any makeup for your eyes or lips. I'm a huge fan of liquid foundations and BB creams, and I've got 5 to share with you that are my absolute favorites!

NYX Invincible Fullest Coverage Foundation This is a tad on the thick side, kind of between a liquid and a cream in my opinion, but I feel it's that way so it can offer more coverage. While I don't think it's the "fullest coverage" like the name states, I do like it a lot and think it provides a great amount of coverage. Usually when I wear this I only need concealer to cover up my under eye circles, the foundation takes care of any breakouts, dark areas, and the redness on my cheeks.
L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation I think my favorite thing about the whole True Match line is how you really can find a true match for your skin. They have such a vast array of shades, ranging from cool, neutral, and warm, so you're definitely going to find the perfect match. This is my go-to foundation 3/4 of the year. It has excellent coverage and blends easily with my skin so it looks very natural. I also like how light it is for a foundation that provides fuller coverage.
L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation Another foundation from the True Match line that I absolutely love is the Lumi Foundation. It gives your skin such a healthy glow and really looks natural. This is the foundation I wear in the Spring going into Summer because it's still pretty light for the coverage and gives you that nice dewy look. This is also a great foundation for the days when you don't want to wear a ton of makeup but still want to look nice.
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream This was the first BB cream I ever tried and it will always be an old favorite. I like the texture and blendability (is that even a word?), and my face always feels super fresh after applying. This is what I wear during the summer when I just want something light that will help even out my skin tone.
NYX Beauty Balm BB Cream I discovered this BB cream at the beginning of Summer and have been using it almost daily ever since. This provides some of the best coverage and is incredibly light, perfect for looking flawless in the summer heat.

If you have foundation or BB cream recommendations, definitely let me know. I'm interested in trying some higher end foundations since I've only ever purchased drugstore brands. Also, I'd love to know what foundations/BB creams you're using right now! xoxo Mandy

  2. I'm a big fan of MAC foundations. I use the Pro Longwear and Studio Sculpt foundations. Lately, I've been loving (and wearing everyday) Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. It gives a healthy glow to the skin, and the coverage is buildable without leaving your skin looking cakey.
