In this post, I've rounded up my three top foundations that all meet my expectations, starting with my personal holy grail product.
- By Terry "Cover Expert" in Neutral Beige - This is hands-down my very favourite foundation. It smells lovely and feels like silk on the skin. The colour isn't even the lightest shade (it's number 2) and is yet perfect for my skin tone. I dare say that anyone who tries this will adore it, but the down side is the very expensive price. In Germany, it costs 48 Euros. Sure, it does last you many months, but buying it always feels like a little obstacle. This is why I try less pricey foundations every now and then, but at least once a year I end up buying my beloved Cover Expert. I recently wore it in my "Sunny Autumn Days" post.
- Catrice "All Matt Plus" in Light Beige - When it comes to drugstore products, I am very happy with Catrice Cosmetics. Always affordable and always in decent quality. This foundation goes onto my skin smoothly, but unfortunately, it's a tiny bit too dark for me. I tend to mix it with another very light foundation, making it a really great colour match. For a retail price of 6,50 Euros, this is a definite recommendation! (A post wearing it is in the making.)
- Missha "Signature Real Complete BB Cream" in Light Milky Beige - This is the very first BB cream I purchased and I was instantly pleased with the quality as well as the incredible colour. At first I was a bit skeptical if it might be too light for me, but luckily I'm pale enough to wear it, haha. This product is still in its 'testing phase', but I can see myself buying it again. It offers a great coverage and blends into my skin very evenly. I wore it in my "Little Princess" and "Walk in the Park" posts.
Here are my three crucial additions to any of the foundations:
- Lenibrush "Top Flat Kabuki LBF01" - Until most recently, I never cared too much about the makeup brushes I was using. But since I discovered Zoeva and Lenibrush, I realized how much a good makeup brush improves the entire application process as well as the result. This kabuki brush helps me put on foundation flawlessly.
- Manhattan "Soft Compact Powder" in Transparent - I think I go through one box of this powder in two months (or less). This makes me wonder.. do I use too much of it or is this a normal amount? Anyways, I love how this transparent powder sets my makeup and evens out and softens my complexion. The price is a total steal, I think it costs about 3 Euros in the drugstore.
- Maybelline "The Eraser" in Fair - A nice product to hide under eye circles. I've never been much of a concealer girl, always preferring a foundation that gives enough coverage, but this concealer is a decent product that has found its place in my daily makeup routine although I'd like it to give a bit more coverage.
This has turned out to be a very text-heavy post. I hope you might find it helpful if you're still on the search for a good foundation!
