Favourite foundations I keep reaching for

Favourite foundations

I don’t know about you but the foundation I reach for depends on a number of things, from how my skin is looking, to if my skin is dry, or to generally what kind of finish I’m wanting. That being said there are a few foundations that I’ve been reaching for a lot lately, so today’s post is all about those ones, my current 4 favourite foundations.

The Ordinary Serum foundation is the first one I had to mention; it is the one I reach for when I don’t want to be able to really feel my foundation, and my skin is feeling a little dry. It’s an incredibly liquid-y formula that also feels super lightweight, something I love. It has a gorgeous soft matte finish and provides me with light to medium coverage. It really is one to try, especially at the incredibly low price.

As a side note, I do love the coverage foundation from The Ordinary too, and often switch between them both, but this is the one I’ve been reaching for since November.

When I’m looking for a slightly glowy-er, healthier-looking base I have been reaching for the Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue foundation*. This has a gorgeous healthy finish, if you hadn’t guessed, that has a lovely natural glow to it. I instantly feel like I look more awake as soon as I’ve put this one on. I really love it. The coverage is medium but it can be built up too, so it is perfect for everyday. I do have to wear this with a primer if I don’t want it to break up around my nose but I honestly don’t mind that to get the gorgeous finish.

Next up is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation, the one I reach for if I know I’ve got a long day at work, or I’m going somewhere straight after work, or I’m just busy. It’s the one foundation in my collection that I know will still be on my face at the end of the day. Wear may be visible but it won’t have completely disappeared off my face like some do, and I don’t even need to wear a primer for this result. I absolutely love that I can rely on it and the way it looks on the skin. It has a medium coverage with a soft matte finish.

If I’m after a flawless finish and going out for the evening the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation is always the one I reach for. I absolutely adore how flawless it makes my skin looks, it’s one that makes me feel amazing. It also lasts really well which means I never need to worry about it fading over the course of an evening. I love this one so much, and it’s probably one of my all-time favourite foundations.
