How to choose a foundation?

Choosing foundation is a very personal choice. I like a super light weight consistency formula that has really good coverage and lasts all day and night long.

If you have dry skin and want to wear a matte foundation, be sure to moisturize and hydrate your skin prior. If you have oily skin, and want the perfect J-lo glow then consider a primer or moisturizer that helps with oil control.

With so many brands finally adhering to the diversity of colour, it can be really confusing to pick a foundation that matches your unique skin tone. Look out for single letters such as ‘W’,’C’, ‘N’ and ‘G’ that stand for ‘warm’, ‘cool’, ‘neutral’ and ‘golden’ undertones.

This is a staple in my makeup kit and is light enough to be used every day. The foundations comes in 18 shades and is used by J-lo’s celebrity makeup artist Marie Philips. Yes, J-lo rocks a drugstore foundation and now you should too.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation by Rihanna,  was one of the first brands foundation with 40 unique shades range. Because of the fact that it oxidizes, and you need to buy a shade lighter than your actual skin tone, it gives a classic healthy skin like finish. It is build able to high coverage and let’s powders like highlights and bronzers sit well on top.

These foundations are always in my makeup kit and I love mixing them together to achieve the desired look. Each of these foundations work really well with various application tools such as finger, brushes and beauty blenders. Have you tried any of these foundations? Which ones have I missed out?
