All Time Favourite Foundations

Finding the best foundation for your skin type is not always the easiest task. Especially when adding in different skin concerns.

So whether you prefer a day to day natural makeup look or full coverage to hide that annoying PMS pimple, we have got the perfect match for you.

Follow these 6 tips to finding the correct shade for you:

  1. If you are buying for everyday wear, opt for a little coverage such as a tinted moisturiser or BB cream.
  2. Choose three shades that are similar in colour, swiping them side by side, opting for the shade which seemingly disappears.
  3. Always check your shade in natural lighting for a true feel of the colour against your complexion.
  4. Always have a foundation for winter and then for summer.
  5. If you tend to have an oily complexion, try prolong the wear of your foundation by wearing a primer or setting with a lightweight powder.
  6. If you notice that your foundation is applying streaky, say goodbye to a brush applicator and opt for a beauty blender which will produce a more finished look.

These are some of our faves:
