05 Jul My Top 5 Foundations for every budget.
Well it has been a crazy few weeks , you forgot the lack of sleep when a baby arrives especially when you have a toddler! It has been fantastic and challenging at times but at the end of the day I wouldn’t change it one bit.
While being off I have gone make – up free most days and with the weather being ok it meant I got a bit of a color to my face but also brought my freckles to a new level , right under my eyes and across my nose but this is me so I don’t really care as its my summer face and as much as I hated them and felt embarrassed by my freckles in the summer when I was younger I embrace them now.
But there are times when I want to hide them and there are times when I don’t mind them peeking through my foundation. So I have my 5 picks for all different coverage foundation to suit every budget.
Now I have said it time and time again my favorite foundation is MAC Studio Fix Fluid . There is a few reasons on why I love this makeup some much . It last all day and there is no need to reapply. The texture is so light that you don’t feel you are wearing makeup as nothing feels worse than loading your face with products as it feels and looks heavy, not a good look. It is a matte finish and a medium to full buildable coverage. With a broad spectrum of UVA/UVB SPF15 protection and this is key as you need to have SPF in your foundation to protect your face , we don’t want to age too soon!! As I said it is long wearing and last all day , it minimizes pores and imperfections giving a flawless finish.
I have recently been using Note Cosmetics Detox and Protect Foundation with SPF15. I hadn’t really heard much about this brand but when I saw it in my local chemist I decided to try it . I found it really easy to apply and the coverage is fantastic as you can build it up over those tricky area ( like thoses pesky freckles !!) It has a smooth and last finish and feels so light on your face . The one I used is for all skin types with sweet almond oil , yeast extract and vitamin E which we all know helps to maintain healthy skin and eyes , and strengthens the body’s natural defence against illness and infection. This is perfect foundation for during the week when you want the coverage but no fuss. It’s available in selected chemist nationwide.
Now where would we be without Penneys !!! From there on trend clothing to their amazing beauty range , so when I was doing your normal “I’m just popping into penneys for socks ” and come out with everything and there P.S Pro Mineral Foundation for only €6 yes €6 , sure you can’t go wrong and if it wasn’t great at least I didn’t spend a fortune. But very surprisingly I loved it. With its smooth application and the coverage so good that it covers my freckles. Now I am the world’s worst for touching my face , like I am consistently at me face which means I need a foundation that will sustain this, and the P.s Pro does just that and for €6 you can’t go wrong.
For the last few years i have gone back and forth to Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation . Now this is perfect for anyone who has early mornings and needs their face not to look as tried as they feel. It instantly awakens the skin with a radiant healthy glow , it is so light on the skin and gives a really smooth finish that lifts your skin from fatigue and has SPF15 . It is easy to apply whether with a brush or a sponge it will give you a flawless finish.
Finally I have picked Youngblood foundation . These products are mineral base cosmetics which are aimed to hydrate the skin for a healthy radiance , with a special blend of rare reduced salt deep-sea water , botanical and more than 20 ocean minerals to soothes and revitalizes skin. I love this as it has a pore free finish and last all day , I found this such an easy foundation to apply , with great coverage and when I left for work in the morning till I was going to bed it never shifted and for me that’s the key, as like most women I don’t have the time to be re-apply make-up all day .
So there you go my Top 5 foundations , are any of these in your makeup bag ?Let me know!!
