Top 5 Makeup Foundations



Since everyone’s skin is different, the cosmetics that you buy should be slightly different too. A person with oily skin should own different products than someone with dry skin. That is why shopping for foundation can be quite challenging. Today I want to help cater to your specific skin type and find a foundation that is right for YOU!

Foundation is important if you want to even out your skin tone or cover any imperfections. I am a huge fan of liquid foundation. Cream is my second favorite, but might be too hydrating or heavy for some. I never use powder foundation because I have dry skin, but it might work best for someone who has oily skin.

What finish do you like the best? Dewy, matte? Do you want full coverage, or something that is more sheer?

If you watch my video below, you will see that I provided 5 different foundations with different finishes that are good for oily, dry, sensitive, and combination skin.

The top 5 foundations in no specific order are…


1.) Nars Luminous All Day Weightless Foundation. It is great for oily to normal skin. Since it is a matte finish, watch out if you have dry patches on the face since it might cling to those spots and look blotchy or dry you out even more. This foundation is truly weightless and doesn’t feel heavy the way most foundations do.


2.) Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Great for all skin types. Since this is a dewy finish, watch out if you have super oily skin, since this finish might emphasize that too much. This foundation does have a bit of a fragrance in it, but I don’t seem to have a problem with it.


3.) Lorac Natural Performance Foundation. Great for all skin types. Lorac brand is known for catering to sensitive skin. This foundation has a lot of natural ingredients. It is Paraben-free, fragrance-free, and oil-free.


4.) Smashbox Studio Skin 15- Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. This long lasting foundation is the best long lasting finish that I have ever tried. It is great for all skin types. It is super hydrating and never feels dry or cracky after sitting on the face all day.


5.) Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. Great for all skin types. Especially oily or sensitive skin. The clay is great for oil and it is a 12- hour lasting foundation with a matte finish. From my personal experience, it seems to be waterproof, sweat proof, and smudge proof. I love that this has SPF 15 in it too.

To apply liquid foundation, use a Beauty Blender. I am also a fan of stippling brushes and Kabuki buffing brushes.

I hope you find a foundation that is right for you!
