When you find that perfect foundation for your oily skin, you hold on and never let go! 😉 Amiright?! Although I’m constantly trying new formulas and testing new products, there are always those tried and true that I’ll turn to for particular occasions when I know I need a foundation that will come through for me. Weddings, special events, date night or just those times when you know you’ll be out all day and won’t get a chance to touch up or hey, you just want to slay it from the beginning to end! These are foundations that I know will always be there for me 😉 lol!
Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation won me over earlier this year when they first launched it. The formula is water based so it’s ultra hydrating while still having a beautiful matte full-coverage finish. I recently found that applying it with a flat top kabuki brush not only saves product but also makes for a gorgeous finish!
The Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick is another fantastic full-coverage foundation in a stick formula. It feels super sheer on but it’s very pigmented so a little goes a long way and the coverage is amazing! I love applying it with their Vanish Foundation Brush but any dense synthetic brush should do!
MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Water Blend Face & Body Foundation is an amazing sheer coverage foundation that’s perfect for those no-makeup makeup days. The water-gel formula makes this foundation buildable to a light-medium finish with natural dewy glow. Set with a light dusting of powder, I love that it gives my skin that natural healthy look without any oily sheen.
L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation is a cult favorite. Not only is it an amazing matte foundation for the drug store, but the forumla gives prestige brands a run for their money! The coverage is incredibly impressive and true to its name, it keeps you looking matte throughout the day.
Smashbox’s Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation is my newest discovery and has already found itself at the top of my foundation list. In fact, I might go as far as to say it’s my new Holy Grail! The oil-free formula offers a medium coverage that’s easily buildable to full, and really is transfer proof! This means when I go to give Chris a hug, none of my foundation transfers onto his dress shirt (within reason, of course, if I rubbed then anything would transfer). I found that applying it with a beauty blender or sponge gives me the most beautiful finish and this foundation literally stays perfectly put ALL DAY! I’ve shared it quite a few times on Snapchat but I’ve applied it at 5AM and gotten home at 10PM and my face still looks perfect like I had just done my makeup! So amazing!!
Are you a fan of these foundations? What’s your favorite?
