Foundations for Occasions

            Foundations. There are a million of them out there and they can be overwhelming and hard to sort through. Matte or luminous? Powder or liquid? Drug store or high end? Honestly, it can feel nearly impossible to find a foundation that you absolutely love. I have tried and gathered a few foundations that you I know and love and feel like you would enjoy, too!

Best Drugstore Find: Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation

The price alone is enough to intrigue you. This product is about $8!! It has 40 different shades AND had different undertones as well, making this product pretty inclusive – and we LOVE that! This foundation does exactly what it says it does – gives you a matte finish and helps minimize your pores without clogging them! It is also an oil free formula as well!

Long-wear Foundation Find: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

This is Estee Lauder’s #1 rated foundation world wide – and for good reason! It gives you an awesome matte finish AND literally stays on FOREVER. A tip with this product, a little goes a long way! Since this foundation is a little heavier, if you use too much it can feel too heavy on your face! This is the foundation I grab every time I have a special event – whether that be a wedding or a night out. This is the best long wear foundation I have ever used. On top of that, it also hase over 55 SHADES!

Tinted Moisturizer: IT’S A TIE!

 I have TWO tinted moisturizers that I love! These are great for everyday wear and when you aren’t in the mood to put a FULL FACE of makeup on, but still want to feel put together! Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a great option for oily skin. This product is an oil free formula and has SPF 20! This is a sheer coverage and gives you a demi-matte finish. Charlotte Tillbury Unisex Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer is another awesome option. This product adapts to your skin as you apply – picking up your natural skin tone for a natural finish. It has bronzing pigments – giving you a nice natural tan look. It is super hydrating and gives you a luminous natural finish. Both of these products feel light on the face and are great for every day use!

Natural Foundation: Fenty Beauty Foundation

 In my opinion, Fenty Beauty deserves the hype it gets. This foundation is absolutely incredible. It is a medium coverage foundation but is buildable – so you can make it as full coverage as you want! It is an oil free soft matte foundation and doesn’t clog your pours! This formula is also SUPER light and a little goes a long way! Not too matte and not too luminous. It is an awesome option and is a pretty great price as well!

All Time Favorite: Charlotte Tillbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation

I tried this foundation on a whim and I am SO happy I did. This foundation is a full coverage formula and is weightless! It helps reduce pores, boosts hydration, and is sweat resistant and water resistant! I love that this product has a little bit on skin care incorporated into it! It is a little bit of a slurge product, but in my opinion it is totally worth it!

            So, if you are looking for a new foundation, I would recommend all of these as an option! What is your go to foundation? Do you use any of these foundations on this list? Let me know!
