I love makeup…simple as that. I do not like heavy make up or to look like I’m wearing lots of make up. My preference is a natural, glowy, dewy type look when it comes to makeup…nothing to harsh. If you check out my beauty and skin care category you will see my favorite products. I’m constantly trying new products and like to keep everyone updated on my favorites.
I’m a little obsessed with foundations and I seem to always keep a handful of different foundations on hand. It depends on where I am going and what I am doing as to which foundation I choose to wear.
Today, I thought I would give the list of my favorite foundations. Some of these have been staples in my makeup case for years while others are fairly new.
Here is my list:
- Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
- Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation
- FACE atelier Ultra Foundation
- PUR 4 in 1 Tinted Moisturizer
I have these in no particular order. I love each and every one of these foundations which is why I keep them all on hand.
First…I have the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. This foundation is super lightweight and gives you a great natural, dewy kind of finish. I like putting this foundation on with a sponge. I wouldn’t consider it a full coverage but rather a light-medium depending on how much you apply. You can apply more to make it more full coverage, however, I like a lightweight type coverage.
This makeup is on the pricer side at $64. However, It lasts a long time and for me it is totally worth it.
Two…is the Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation. I have been using this foundation for years now. It is one of my favorite foundations for when I want a more full coverage…but want something quick. It is so easy just to swipe on and then blend with a brush. I also feel it stays on really well for long periods of time. It is more of a matte finish vs a dewy type finish.
This makeup is not as expensive but is still what many consider mid-high end for makeup…$46. PS…it is currently on sale at Nordstrom (linked above).
Three…FACE Atelier Ultra Foundation…what can I say…it is perfection. This is a fairly new foundation for me and it honestly feels like nothing is on my skin. It blends so beautifully and looks and feels so natural. There is a nice amount of colors. I was nervous about picking my color but I read numerous articles saying that if you got close it would blend well…I found that to be so true. I was concerned that the color I chose would be too dark but it looks just perfect. This makeup truly looks like your natural skin. I cannot say enough good things about it. Oh, and it is actually good for you 🙂
This makeup is also on the high end of things at $52. FACE Atelier ships from Canada so shipping is somewhat pricey and it takes a little long to arrive once ordered. Also, please note…you can order color samples from the website. However, the downfall is that the shipping costs way more than the samples. So, when I first ordered mine I just guessed and ordered. Thankfully it worked out.
Four…the Pure 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer is something I like to keep on hand when I am in a big hurry or just running a couple of errands and don’t want a completely bare face. With this, I just put on my face creams and moisturizer and then blend this in with my fingers like I’m putting on my moisturizer. It is lightweight and lasts for a decent amount of time. It gives nice color without having to put on a full face of makeup.
This tinted moisturizer is relatively cheap at $35. I have honestly had mine for forever.
Well, this pretty much rounds up my list. I love getting makeup for Christmas and gift cards to get makeup for Christmas. Therefore, I thought now would be the perfect time to mention these great foundations. After all,they will make great gifts 🙂
