Top 5 Foundations

Despite being enamoured by my YSL Touche Eclat foundation at the moment I thought I would share with you my top 5 foundations. I tend to prefer liquid or cream foundations rather than powder but this post does feature a mineral powder that I absolutely love.

1 2 3 Perfect by Bourjois (Shade 51)
I have written about this foundation before, it is supposed to have three different coloured pigments to help conceal dullness/dark circles/redness in the skin and overall I think this one does a good job of evening out my skin tone. I like to use this one when I have a breakout or my skin tone is looking particularly uneven.

Healthy Mix Serum by Bourjois (Shade 51)
Another Bourjois foundation and this one is great for achieving a dewy finish. I do find the range of colours is pretty limited though, so I can only really use this one when I am slightly more 'tan' (I don't really tan, I'm a pale girl). I love this one though just for the lovely gel texture and the nice radiant effect it has on my skin.

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation (Shade BD40)
This is my new ultimate favourite foundation. I absolutely love how dewy this makes my skin look, and I like a bit of shine on the face because my skin tends to be dry and can look a bit dull. I don't think you even need highlighter when you wear this foundation simply because it is so shiny (in a lovely, natural way). It goes on really smoothly, the colour choice is great and it is only £28 which is really reasonable for a high end foundation in such lovely glass packaging.

Lily Lolo Mineral Powder (Shade Porcelain)
This is my first ever mineral powder foundation and I love it because it is so pale which is exactly what I need when I haven't seen the sun in a while. I like to use this over a BB cream and I find it just gives a really natural effect on the skin and just enough coverage. I like to use this one on days when my skin already looks pretty good so I don't need too much coverage.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (Shade 100 Ivory)
By now you'll know I have dry skin and I love a dewy glow. This foundation is great because it offers pretty decent coverage but it is dewy at the same time. This is more of a thick-ish, creamy foundation, compared to the previous foundations mentioned, so I find it is great for covering up any imperfections whilst keeping my skin looking radiant. I love the smell of this too, it smells of cucumber which is lovely in the morning!

What are you favourites?
