FOUNDATION FOR EVERY OCCASION

Foundation is one of those beauty products that I find really exciting to buy...which probably suggests I need to get out more but that's an entirely different blog post. Today I'm talking about the three foundations I have whittled my collection down to which work for every occasion. 

THE 'EVERYDAY' FOUNDATION
My go-to, holy grail, *insert every other blogger cliche* foundation is NARS Sheer Glow. I honestly can't fault this stuff. It's a medium coverage foundation that can be sheered out or built up and has a natural, satin finish that's neither too dewy nor too matte which makes it pretty much perfect for most days.

THE 'GOOD SKIN DAY' FOUNDATION
Unfortunately, my lack of 'good skin days' means I don't get to whip out the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum very often but I love it when I can. The formula is a light gel that feels weightless and moisturising. It looks very natural but offers just enough coverage to even everything out. Great for 'no-makeup makeup' or those lucky few with perfect skin (I hate you).

THE 'GOING OUT-OUT' FOUNDATION
Even though 'going out-out' tends to involve hanging out in the dark surrounded by drunk people, we usually feel the need to wear higher coverage makeup than normal. And Kat Von D Lock It is my favourite. It's a full coverage, long-lasting foundation with a flawless matte finish that stays put all night long. 

What's your favourite foundation?

  1. I've been using the Bourjois Healthy Mix Gel Serum for years and adore it, but recently I bought the Urban Decay Naked Skin and it's pretty much my favourite everyday foundation - without the need for me to add a bit of foundation lightener! I've heard a lot of good things about KVD's concealer, but I seem to see a lot of people disliking the foundation so it's interesting to see a positive look at it! xx

    1. I've been wanting to try Naked Skin but I know that UD foundations sometimes oxidise so I'm a bit hesitant to, maybe I'll give it a go if you think it's good for pale skin! I think some people can find the KVD one drying but I've got normal/dry skin and don't have a problem with it. It's probably worth trying a sample first?xxx
