To Wear or Not to Wear Foundation?

Foundations are one of the most exciting products to purchase for myself, but they are also one of the most frustrating ones. I love to read an amazing review on a foundation and then go out and test it for myself. However, because I have incredibly pale skin it can become very difficult for me to find a foundation that matches my skin tone. Because of this I wanted to do my top 5 foundations but I have to admit it was difficult to pick 5 because I generally tend to only stick to a few. But some of the drugstore foundations I have chosen I love to use in the summer when I do not need as much coverage.

5. L’Oreal True Match
L’Oreal True Match has a full range of different colours to choose from, making it very easy to find the right one for you. However, I do wish we were able to take a sample home before purchasing it, just to make sure the colour is correct as it is almost impossible to return items to the drugstore in the Uk.Although I love this foundation I only like to use it in the warmer months as it has quite a luminous glow and during the winter I prefer to appear quite matte. 

4. No7 Beautifully Matte 
One of my favourite drugstore foundations No7 Beautifully Matte is perfect for both day and night as it lasts for a great length of time. No7 have a brilliant gadget where they hold a device up to your face and it reads your perfect colour for you. The foundation does what it says on the tin, it is matte and it lasts perfectly for a good couple of hours, making a staple in my make up collection.

3. L’Oreal Infallible 
Another drugstore foundation is the L’Oreal Infallaiable, it’s high coverage and once again has a great range of colours. It has a pump which I love on a foundation and blends seamlessly with both a brush and a beauty blender. The only negative comment about this foundation is after wearing for a great length of time it can start to oxidise.  

2. MAC’s Studio Fix
I have been using MAC’s Studio Fix for a while now and I always opt back to this foundation when I want a full coverage.  I like to apply it with a duo fibre brush as I feel it gives the best look and finish. I tend to use this foundations when I am going on a night out as I know my make up will stay in place all night and not move an inch off my face. 

1.Nars Sheer Glow
The Nars Sheer Glow foundation is my current favourite, it has medium to full coverage and lasts throughout the day. It has excellent range of colours, as I am not the lightest shade – which is a breath of fresh air I must say, to know I’m not as pale as a vampire for once! The only negative thing I can say about this foundation is there is no pump! And it drives me crazy, as every shop I visit is sold out, come on Nars get it together!!

What is your favourite foundation?
