My Go To Foundations

When I first really fell in love with makeup, I was only around 12 years old after getting an iPod touch and watching far too many gurus on YouTube. The product that amazed me more than anything else was foundation. I think it was because as a 12 year old with more freckles than I cared to mention, I was desperate to get my hands on some foundation and paint it thick on my face so that you could no longer see all of my freckles. I think that it was Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse that started the obsession and from there I began to branch out and try so many different brands. In this blog post I thought that I would do a round up and let you know why some of my favourites are in the top spot and what makes them better than others that I have used…


Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

This really is my all-time favourite foundation and I have no idea how many times I have mentioned this on the internet in recent years. This is a lightweight foundation and blends into the skin like a dream. This product really does hide absolutely everything on the skin and makes me feel like a newborn baby with super perfect skin. I have tried other foundations from Nars, but it is always this that I come back to and buy over and over again. This truly is a lovely product that I know will never fail me and look good all day long.


Cover FX Total Cover Crème Foundation

I feel like this product does not get even half as much positive press as it should. I bought this after trying the Cover FX Crème Contour palette and falling completely head over heels in love with the formula of the creams and how they blended into the skin, it was only logical that I try the corresponding foundation. This is an item that I keep in my handbag at all times just in case I have a full-blown makeup meltdown and I need to touch up my coverage or hide any scary imperfections!


Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

I can remember first trying this foundation when I first started up my blog and even though I used and liked the entire bottle, it was not something that I was desperate to run out and get another bottle. I repurchased this after Jackie Aina did her collab with them and I wanted to show some support and I went and bought a bottle. I find that this is just a great foundation for an everyday basis. I know that it can cover well, while still making my skin look natural and lovely and my other favourite items are going to pair really well.


Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Foundation

If I want to hide my skin away completely and go for nothing but 100% coverage, it is the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Foundation that I will reach for without hesitation. The level of coverage that I get from this foundation when applied with a  dense brush seems to match up to the old Marc Jacobs ‘Remarcable’ Foundation that was like pure pigment in a bottle, without all of the negatives that I had with this product. This hides my pigmentation damage with no quibbles, my freckles are gone, and other products apply on top like a dream.


Maybelline 24Hour Super stay Foundation

This is the only drugstore foundation that I am going to talk about, and it really does deserve a place in the top spot because it has penetrated my high-end loving walls. I think it was somebody on Instagram that I saw using this so many times and above all else it was the shade of this product that stood out to me the most. I just think that the shade range that they have in this foundation is absolutely brilliant and the undertone of them seem to match me almost perfectly. This is my ideal everyday foundation for work.


These are all some of my favourite products and I absolutely adore the way that they look on the skin and that is why I continue to use them time and time again. There was a period in time where I had almost 50 different foundations in my collection, but after sitting down and really thinking about the products that I use and repurchase without hesitation, these are the main products that I adore. Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know some of the products that you love and why you use them so often. I will also leave some affiliate links below in case you would like to look at these products for yourself!
