There are so many foundations in the market that you could literally wreck your brain trying to decide which is the best formula for your skin type.
Even for professional makeup artists, we are constantly on the search for the Holy Grail foundation that will meet, if not all, most of our clients’ needs.
Now personally this year, I love these four foundations that are scattered on my bathroom counter. Most people who know me well, will realize I don’t leave my house without covering my skin with a base and its not because I have awful skin but instead I feel protected from the elements when I do.
So here are my top go tos:
For lighter days I use the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8 in 1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector in Deep. It gives you a light, fresh, no makeup look when you don’t feel for anything heavy on the skin.
Oh my goodness, I love this formula… the Black Up CC cream is a dream for women of colour whom what a fresh radiant light coverage. My only con with this product is the amount; it should be in a drum.
The foundation I use when I want a demi matte finish is the Loreal Infallible Pro matte foundation. It give you a somewhat hydrated and matte finish at the same time and it lasts all day when paired with a good primer.
Finally, Black Up strikes again with their Mattifying foundation that I use to glam up or when I need a medium to full coverage with minimal shine. Black Up is a bit pricer than other formulas but for women of colour who don’t want a ashy nor cakey look with the full coverage and mattifying benefits then this is the product for you.
That’s it for now, if find another favourite go to foundation, I will share with you because the makeup struggle is so real.
