The process of wearing foundation can go wrong oh so quickly. Often times, people wear the wrong color for their complexion. Do you go lighter or darker.The answer is, neither. Not all brands are meant for certain skin tones and types. For example, I purchased a foundation made by Burberry. Although it was the darkest shade in the line, it still didn’t work for my complexion. I currently use it as a highlighter/concealer because it was just too light to use all over. It’s best you choose a brand that caters to all skin colors so it leaves the options of mixing and creating that perfect shade just for you obtainable. My go-to foundations are made from Too Faced, MAC and Becca. They leave my skin hydrated, while giving me long lasting full coverage.
Born This Way Foundation
Too-Faced Born This Way Foundation is an oil-free foundation that blends so well and leaves the skin looking flawless.The coverage is so undetectable, tucking away all imperfections. The skin is left naturally radiant. I like mixing this foundation with others. Its the perfect base and when worn alone, it light and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It’s a little watery but once setting powder is applied, it leaves me with a very natural and flawless look. I use the color maple. Check it out here.
Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème
I tend to reach for this foundation majority of the time. It conceals imperfections, redness, hyper-pigmentation, and uneven texture extremely well. Although BECCA’s formula is creamy, it still provides a flawless and weightless finish. Ideal for any skin type, it is formulated with a balance of 21 percent pure pigment and 22 percent water, which work in synergy to completely soften the appearance of blemishes and uneven texture.I use this foundation in the color tobacco.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
MAC and I have a love hate relationship. I used to use this foundation everyday when I was in college. I started to breakout a little so I discontinued the use of it for awhile. I started using it again last year, and my skin loves it again. I am not sure why my skin rejected it then but I am glad that they resolved their issues. This is also a full coverage foundation. After applying, it leaves a natural matte finish.I usually use this as my night foundation because it’s long lasting. It has great coverage and an extra perk is its UVA/UVB SPF 15 protection. I use the color NW43. Check it out here.
