Right blogger warning straight away! This top three foundation review will contain graphic and CLOSE UP images of my face, flaws and imperfections. In order for you lovely people to see the foundation in its full glory I decided to whip out the big old camera and take up close and personal pictures of my skin wearing the foundation. This means my trusty spots, hair and oil is all on display. Lovely.
I was a bit skeptical about uploading this pictures onto this blog where it could be ripped to shreds but hey lets just embrace these flaws and recognise the genius power of the foundation trying its hardest to disguise them. Lord bless me with the strength...
Foundation in my personal option is something that sets the base of your face and is the MOST important part in wanting that natural yet Beyonce flawless finish. It is the one product I would say is worth splashing that dolla on. I have split my top 3 in categories of best for pale skin, BB and all time best.
HERE IT IS
1) To my fair babies!
Being a fair/PASTY skinned girl myself I understand that this does not always come with that porcelain model esque perfect skin. Instead it means I have practically translucent skin that shows up every single freckle, spot, redness and vein EVER. Even imaginary ones, I swear!
Bobbi Brown Long-wear Even Finish Foundation, (shade 2 Sand) this little cheeky number understands my pain and offers me full coverage without looking mask like. YAS. It even has an SPF 15 which is perfect for those wrinkle worriers like moi. It lets your skin breathe while still lasting all day and never casts any yellow/pink tones that many pale shades create. Its medium to full coverage and is oil free too whilst keeping the skin hydrated. Basically your best friend.
2) To my Natural Beauties!
Now full coverage may not be to everyone's taste, some may have amazing skin and other like me need something quick and simple, yet effective. This is perfect for lazy days. A BB cream is a light weight foundation/tinted moisturiser that should even out skin tone and hide blemishes.
Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB, (shade Intensity 3.0) this is perfection as it is a lightweight super fluid foundation/BB cream that has a super high SPF of 30 which is so useful when on holidays which is when I usually take this bad boy. This instantly perfects the skin tone and vibrancy. The soft optics within the formulation impart clear, bright tone and lustre to the skin for a flawless healthy glow. Added benefits include up to 8 hours long wear and Vitamin E + C. On my own personal recommendation the colour selection for this is slightly poorer than most so this is definitely a holiday buy!
