Let's Talk Foundation | The Video & The Low Down


This week I decided to follow up my concealer video with a foundation 101! 

When it comes to foundation I like the coverage to be buildable and the finish to be radiant on my skin. 

I go through the same stages in this video as I did the concealer one - I start off covering the primers I use before my foundation. Two that I have consistently used over the last few years are the MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance in Radiant Yellow and Shu Uemura’s Instant-Glow Skin Perfecting Cream. I featured my top 5 foundations which are ones I have loved, long term - MAC Studio Sculpt NC44, Illamasqua Skin Base SB12/14, NARS Sheer Glow in Syracuse, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 8 and Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer in 10/11. When it comes to selecting a foundation to use it will always depend on the day and  type of coverage I desire at that moment. For setting my foundation I always opt for loose, fine powders that don’t appear apparent on the skin - MAC’s Prep + Prime Transparent Powder is one I’ve used for about 5 years, it looks so skin like and doesn’t cause my foundation to cake. I also love Ben Nye’s Banana Powder which is probably no surprise as it’s a product I constantly rave about. Be sure to check out the video to see my favourite tools for foundation.

I’m quite enjoying these videos, I think I will make a series out of it. Let me know what you think. 

Lots of Love
