A Guide to my Fave Foundations

March 29, 2021

 Last week for my Top Faves Tuesday reel I showed you all my favorite foundations. If you missed it, here is a link - Top Faves Tuesday: Foundations

Afterward, I got so many questions such as, "Which one is best for oily skin?" "dry skin?" "Which one is best for every day?" etc.

So I am breaking down my top favorite foundations in this blog post!

We will start in no particular order and end with my holy grail

Starting first with Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless

This is a tried and true, affordable, and reliable foundation that I have loved since high school! My favorite thing about this foundation is that it truly makes my pores disappear. This is a great lightweight foundation that can be medium coverage or built up to full coverage. I like to wear this in the summer when I will be outdoors and want my foundation to stay, but not be too heavy. This is most definitely for people with normal to oily skin as it is very matte. My preferred way to apply this foundation is with a damp beauty sponge.

This is my very favorite drugstore foundation, L'OREAL Infallible Pro-Matte
If you think you see a pattern starting, you're not wrong. I tend to have oily skin and I love a matte finish 95% of the time! This foundation can be worn for almost any occasion. It is great for every day but can easily be built up for a more full coverage look for a night out. While this foundation is matte finish, I love that almost anyone can wear it, even someone who tends to have dry skin! My preferred way to apply this foundation is with a damp beauty sponge. 

Next, we have the sister to the foundation above, L'OREAL Infallible Pro-Glow
I originally picked this up for my artist kit but decided to test it out for myself when I was bored one day. Just like the pro-matte, the pro-glow is designed for a specific type of skin (dry) but can be worn even by someone with oily skin. These foundations have one of the best formulas and the pro-glow is great for a summery "your skin but better" look! My favorite way to apply this foundation is with the EcoTools classic foundation brush.

My newest favorite foundation is the Juvia's Place I Am Magic Foundation
I picked this foundation up upon recommendation from my makeup artist mentor. This is a great affordable, full coverage, stay all day foundation. I stocked up on this for my own makeup kit because I loved it so much! One of my favorite things about this foundation is the shade range! My preferred way to apply this foundation is a damp beauty sponge. 

Second to last I have my favorite everyday foundation, it Cosmetics Your Skin but Better Foundation + Skincare
As I said above, this is the foundation I wear on the day-to-day. It is a lightweight, medium coverage foundation that truly makes my skin feel so great while I am wearing it. It has a pretty natural finish but have noticed it can sometimes be drying even on my skin, so be sure to pair with a moisturizing primer. My favorite way to apply this foundation is with my EcoTools classic foundation brush.

Finally, we have made it to my holy grail foundation, Estee Lauder Double Wear
This is my wear to war foundation, it will truly last through anything and everything. I wore it on my wedding day, out in Vegas, pageant appearances, you name it! Any time I want to make sure my skin looks perfect all day, I apply this foundation. It can definitely be drying, but apply it after a great moisturizer or primer and it will soon be your favorite as well! I have tried so many foundations and not one compares to my Double Wear. My favorite way to apply this foundation is with a damp beauty sponge. 

I hope this little guide was helpful and you fall in love with one of these foundations like I have!
