Foundations I adore!

I already did a review for these products but its nice to line them up here and discuss them further. My readers and attendees of workshops almost always ask me what Liquid foundation is best. I always say, the best is the one suited for your skin. What works for me might not work for you.

But nevertheless, these are my  current favorite brands. Laura mercier liquid foundation, I have the lighter and darkets shade available. I just customize the shade for clients. Personally, I use the creme foundation below (my shade is cashew beige) 

In terms of blendability, both foundations are best blended by hands especially the creme foundation. 
Coverage: the liquid foundation is already very good for everyday and if you want something very light. The creme has more coverage and since its waterbased, is also great for those with oily skin.

Shade wise-here in Manila, Rustans does not carry the complete shades.I find their darkest shade still light for some clients that has deep tan skin tones.

The Makeup forever mat velvet is also great in fact I use to wear this all the time. Unfortunately, there are times when I feel like its too drying for me. It does not feel as silky as the  Laura foundations.

But I use this for clients with very oily tzone.

Makeup forever powder foundation is what I used to set my foundation. When I use this, I rarely retouch. It certainly absorb excess oils. This product is great for those with very oily skin or skin with slight puckmarks because it has heavy coverage.

Some other foundations I use:

Mac Studio Fix-Great for normal to oily skin.

Smashbox liquid foundation-has great coverage as well.But the one I have has been discontinued and I havent bought the new formulation yet.

Bodyshop mineral cream to powder: Light coverage, still needs to be set with translucent powder but great for those with dry sensitive skin.

Foundations I would like to try out:

Hopefully I can get these babies and give you guys a review!

Till my new post, stay beautiful!
