So it’s currently wet cold and miserable outside and I don’t know about you but this really does play havoc with my skin it’s either too dry or too greasy and there does not seem to be any nice in between.
I was mooching through my makeup and decided that for all you makeup lovers that are encountering a similar bug bearer I would share my favourite foundations for them different skin days when your desperate for a Matte finish or needed a dewy finish, so here are my faves;
First of all my trusty all rounder naked skin foundation by urban decay it really is unbelievable…. This leaves great coverage and doesn’t give you a cakey look with its appearance natural but still quite dewy this is my fave daytime foundation.
Second on the hit list is the foundation i will use if Im suffering from a greasy/shiny skin day this is the one and only Estee lauder double wear, yes it’s a little pricey and it doesn’t come with a pump However I do use this sparingly and this little pot of joy has lasted me around 5 months to date (and still going).
It’s probably my favourite foundation for coverage and lasts all day long. I use this everytime I hit the town too as I find it’s a nice night time makeup that withstands weather and drunken accidental drink spillage lol.
Number 3 is the mac mineralize, now I can’t say this is my favourite it’s coverage is mediocre and I don’t think it lasts as long as it should however its super dewy and gives you a natural glow. It is one I would use on a dry skin day as it has quite a shiny fresh feel to it my problem with this is I wear glasses and find a build up on my nose at the end of the day something Estee doesn’t give me.
Finally there’s a drug store one on my list and that’s the rimmel match perfection it does what it says on the tin it’s long lasting with a medium coverage and leaves a nice glow to the skin without a heavy look and feel. This is an all rounder for me for the days when I’m rushing around like a headless chicken or off shopping.
Next time I hit selfridges I’m going to buy nars sheer glow foundation as I have heard loads of fab things about it. Do you have a fave foundation that you would recommend for a mixed complexion?
Bye for now
