Here are my top 5 foundations after I optimized my makeup collection.
These foundations work well with my skin condition.
My current skin condition
Oily, slightly dehydrated with big pore and hormonal acne during ‘that’ time of the month
My cup of foundation
Medium coverage with natural finish. Even though I have oily skin, I don’t really like matte foundations because I also have large pores and matte foundations tend to make it look too dry.
So here are they, my top 5
1. Mac Face and Body Foundation
Why is this my number 1 fave you ask? Well, despite being the lightest in texture and giving you very sheer coverage, this foundation looks really good on my skin. It looks really natural and gives you very skin like appearance. I also love how this foundation doesn’t really need primer but still stay put and looks good after long hour wearing it.
PS: this is also a really good choice for the glass skin look
2. Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation
In my opinion, this is one of the underrated foundations on the market. Beauty gurus always rave about the GA luminous silk, but this one is also worth the hype. It has slightly more matte finish but still looks very beautiful on the skin.
3.Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation
Wow, isn’t it a mouthful 😆 Anyway, this ‘newcomer’ got my attention since the first time I tried it on. I tried this one because all the good reviews coming from oily skin Youtubers, and Girls, do I like this one so much. It does say matte on the packaging but on my skin it looks more satin-ish. It sits beautifully on the skin, stay put and doesn’t look greasy even though I wear it under the sun for looong hour
4. Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue
This is more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. It has really sheer and natural coverage, and also feels really light weight on the skin. This is my go to on hot summer day, or just when I need a quick ‘put together’ look
5. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation
Long story short, this is like the thicker version of the Mac Face and Body Foundation. It still a very light and watery in consistency but it has more pigment. Using 1 layer of this foundation, gives me more coverage than the Mac one. One reason why this only come at number 5 is because it’s trickier to work with. This foundation isn’t easily to be sheered out. While the Mac one works really well mixed with almost all moisturizer or liquid highlighter, this Tarte one doesn’t always mixed well.
So, are there any of these foundations your favorite too?
