I've recently been pretty obsessed with "perfect skin". Having a good skincare routine helps... so are these few products ;) I would repurchase all of these (some I've been using for years!)
FYI: I have dry sensitive skin! Some of these work for any skin type some of them work well for dry skin!
I have 3 all time favorite foundations to share with you. A light, a medium and a full coverage one!
Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream:
If I could only choose one "foundation" to wear everyday for the rest of my life this would be it!
It's a light coverage so don't expect it to cover everything but my favorite part is that it really looks like skin! I know a lot of people say that about pretty much anything... I heard someone say that Revlon Color Stay looked like skin... Euh no! This really does! It doesn't dry out my skin whatsoever and gives me a dewy healthy look.
The color really matches my skin during the summer and makes me look tan and healthy the rest of the year! The shade does look a bit "grey" and it's darker than the Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream. It works well on my skin tone (NW15-20). If the shade works for you, you need to try it!
Only down side for me is the lack of SPF. Another downside for most people would be the fact that there's only this shade.
Nars Sheer Glow:
I personally have the color Deauville which is a bit too yellow for my taste but I usually work with it or mix it with something else.
This foundation is a favorite cult for a reason. You honestly just need to try it on to understand.
It gives you good coverage (medium to full!) but it still looks natural. Glowy skin? Yes please!
Mac Pro Longwear:
Whenever my skin looks "horrible" and don't know what to do, I go for this foundation! It's the best full coverage I've tried so far! Like I said earlier my skin is dry and I can still manage this foundation as long as a put moisturizer on first (as you should always do anyway!). I don't recommend using it everyday as it could in the long run dry out your skin but when you need the coverage it works wonderfully!
I got matched to NC15 so it's too yellow for me but when I'm done with this bottle I will repurchase in the right shade!
Maybelline Age Rewind Under Eyes Concealer:
This is my third tube of this (used up the brightener and the fair shade). I just got the Light shade for summer as my other concealers will be too light.
This concealer is so creamy and moisturizing and doesn't settle into fine lines once it sets (by that I mean that it might crease while I'm doing my makeup and I'll blend it a second time and then it won't budge the rest of the day!)
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer:
Full coverage concealer I love using this whenever I want to completely hide my dark circles! Doesn't crease once it sets and it's simply the best undereyes I've used!
Con: Wish they would change the pump!
Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer:
I never want to live without this concealer (I know, I know it sounds extreme but it's so true!)
This will cover ANYTHING! I don't think I'll ever try any other face concealer and that's how happy I am with this product.
Full coverage, waterproof, it blends easily and stays put. You need the tiniest amount and I had the shade 1 for almost 2 years and I'm not half way trough it!
Only down side I can think about is the fact that shade one could be a bit dark for some people. (In the middle of winter it's a hint dark but I'll deal with it because it's so great!)
Covergirl Sensitive Skin Pressed Powder:
They just changed the packaging but the product is apparently the same.
Light coverage, I just use it on a daily basis to set my foundation.
If you have dry skin you know how hard - almost impossible- to find a good powder that won't dry out your skin or emphasize dry patches. This is the best I have found as of now from the drugstore.
Laura Geller Balance n Brighten:
I could seriously just stop right there. I looooove this powder! This on top of the Lioele bb cream is the best combo for perfect skin (that looks like skin!) If I could only use one powder forever this would be it!
Swatched it looks really dark but it obviously looks perfect on the skin. I use the shade regular which is a bit dark but for summer it makes my skin look more tan!
I need to get a lighter shade for winter.
Mac Studio Fix:
This powder will give you good coverage and is so finely milled that it looks natural on your skin. I like this way more than my natural skin finish powder.
Con: White cast with a flash!
