Happy Friday, beauties! I’ve decided I’m going to bring the “four favorite” series back and try to post my four favorites of a particular product or style every Friday.
Today, my product of choice is foundation. I have tried a ton of different brands and finishes. While these are all pretty different, they are the four that I have determined as my top contenders.
1. Tarte Matte Shape Tape $39
This is one that I started using recently and I love it! It comes in 30 shades and is pretty much full coverage. I wear shade “fair light neutral” and like that the matte effect keeps my shine down. It’s got awesome coverage without feeling heavy.
This is a great product to wear if you need all-day makeup. I wore it to two weddings this summer and it stayed on all day and night without getting greasy or melty.
If you haven’t tried it, I would highly recommend it. Worth the price.
2. Clinique Acne Solutions $29
I wear shade “Fresh Alabaster” and I’ve been wearing it since I was 14. This is always the one I go back to, especially if I have a breakout.
If you have oily or combination skin, this is the foundation for you. It contains salicylic acid to fight and prevent acne. This liquid is medium coverage and I like to apply it with a brush as opposed to a beauty blender.
You will hear nothing but great things from me about the entire acne solutions line.
3. Benefit Hello Happy $29
This is a new product that Benefit Cosmetics released this summer. The adorable packaging sold me right off the bat.
I went to Ulta last month in search of a foundation with SPF in it. This one has SPF 15 and came in a teeny tiny little sample so I could test the product without committing. Yes! I tried it out and would definitely purchase the full size.
It is on the lighter side coverage-wise, and almost reminds me of a B.B. cream. I wear shade 2 and definitely recommend applying this one with your hands so you don’t waste any product. It’s super light and a little runny.
This is the foundation for all my ladies who love powder. This pressed celebration Foundation is AMAZING. As you can tell by 3/4 of my picks, I love the coverage that comes with a liquid foundation, but this pressed powder rocks!
I wear shade “Fair” and like the applicator sponge that comes with it. Sometimes I will use a brush to lock in my concealer when I don’t need such full coverage.
It contains hydrolyzed collagen for anti-aging, and is great for sensitive skin.
I definitely recommend using a facial mist or setting spray to lock the Celebration Foundation in.
There you have it! My favorite four bases for lasting makeup looks.
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. I would love to hear what else you want to see reviewed in my favorite four!
