Makeup: Foundations



I decided to write a quick post on the foundations I use!

First, I'm going to mention that I'm the in-between shades of ivory and nude. Not plenty of those are in yellow undertones either. If you're an NC20-25 then consider trying these shades out.♥
  • Revlon Colorstay is my top favorite foundation. Studio Fix would have been chosen if it didn't go orange. Revlon's coverage is medium to buildable. I find that it can last on my combination skin. Prior to using the brand, I had extremely oily and shiny skin. I've tried both formulas and the combo one is the best. I've also read from reviews that some dry/normal skin can handle it better.

    Shades: Sand Beige, Nude, Fresh Beige & Buff


Revlon Colorstay Fresh Beige


Revlon Colorstay Buff
  • Boots 07 Lifting & Firming foundation in Nude

Perfect match. The only foundation I don't have to worry about working quickly to blend out. It's light/medium coverage, covers redness well but has less lasting power than Colorstay.

I always put a few drops on my hand to apply to my face and forgot to wipe it off quick.. so I'll be out with a light or darker blob on my hand haha. Good thing Boots 07 matches my hand too!


What's your favorite foundation?

  3. I use bare minerals! They have like every shade possible. I absolutely love it. It's a little bit expensive but a little goes a long way! I usually only buy every 6 months or so. MAC also has AMAZING powder foundation. I just can't wear liquid anymore. My skin doesn't like it, but if it works for you that's awesome! It looks like you have amazing skin anyways :)

    Me too. LOVE Bare Minerals but it'll eat a hole in my wallet lol! I've tried Studio Fix Powder and it was pretty good.

  6. Wow, your hair is amazing! You are very pretty! :) I use a foundation by Gosh, it's the lightest colour I can find from a drugstore brand. I'm quite pale, still looking for that perfect shade though!
