My foundation favourites


Finding the perfect foundation is no easy task! I personally like a light coverage for during the day and hands down flawless for the evenings. Nights out are few and far between for me these days but I still like to have the option of a heavier coverage should I need it!

Most brands offer a variation in base, matte to glowing and light to heavy but I would choose a glowing light finish all day, every day!

I have normal to dry skin so I always opt for a water or oil based formula which hydrates my skin and helps me to achieve a dewy glow. If I had oily skin, I would opt for a matte finish so not to add to an already oily complexion. 

Here are my two favourites (click on the names for links to shop):

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

This is my everyday foundation which I adore, it’s very easy to apply and I love that you can still see my freckles once it has been applied (I am wearing it in the photo above). It is a water-based formula which keeps my skin hydrated and delivers a glow for the most natural skin-like finish. It is buildable and goes easily from light to medium coverage and is available in a wide range of shades for all skin tones. I use the colour ‘Biege 3’. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation

This foundation does exactly what it says on the tin – it stays up and never quits! It is a heavy coverage which achieves a completely flawless complexion. I don’t wear this everyday and prefer it as an evening foundation as it is a matte finish which is perfect for nights out on the dance floor when my own natural shine makes an appearance! This foundation is great for creating a blown out contoured look as it provides an absolutely flawless base to work with.

Lots of love
