Finding the right foundation can seem impossible as it could be too light, too yellow, too cakey, too oily- but when you do, it is amazing! The foundation acts as a canvas for the rest of your make-up, it conceals imperfections, unifies your skin tone and create a flawless finish. Browse my edit of the top 5 foundations now!
The 5 Best Foundations:
1.MAC StudioFix Foundation: This is a comfortable, long-wearing foundation that builds and blends easily. MAC StudioFix is popular with make-up artists as it is a medium to full build able coverage foundation that gives the skin a natural matte finish. Personally, I only use this foundation on special occasions as I find it a little heavy for everyday use. [£]
2.Dior Nude Air: This is an ultra-fluid serum foundation that is very light. When the foundation is applied on the skin, the serum evaporates instantly and deposits an undetectable film of makeup on the skin. This is my daily foundation as it has sheer coverage and enhances my complexion with a natural glow. [££]
3.Crème de LaMer: This is a lightweight treatment foundation and offers medium coverage. What I like about the Treatment Fluid foundation is that it contains an exclusive Blue Algae Lift Ferment which immediately boosts radiance while restoring firmness, clarity and brightness hence the skin is trained to sustain a smoother, softer, and more lifted appearance whilst looking flawless!

4.Georgia Armani Crema Nuda: This foundation is one of my favourite! It is an all-in-one tinted cream with medium coverage. My skin instantly looks luminous, plumper and fresher while feeling healthy and moisturised as the cream hydrates and revives the skin. With this foundation-moisturiser, it is important to blend it well with your fingers until the texture seamlessly fuses onto the skin. The cream does give a beautiful glow to the skin day and night, totally worth the price tag! [£££]
5. Georgio Armani Maestro: Georgio Armani is known as the master of natural glowing skin. This foundation is an industry favourite and another one of my many favourites. Similar to the Dior Nude Air it has a lightweight formula that blends easily and dries matte. This is perhaps ideal for oily skin types and those who want sheer coverage. [££]
With foundation, I like to apply with my fingers to warm and thin the makeup to give it a natural, veil-like finish. Personally I find it easier to blend with my fingers compared to using a brush. There is no right or wrong way- it comes down to personal preference and the type of foundation you are using.
When applying foundation you should start from the centre of the face (around the mouth and nose where people suffer most from discolouration) and blend it outwards, towards your hairline.
