So, in a post I did a little while ago.. I mentioned which Products To Save On vs. Products To Spend On. Foundation is one of those items that I talked about that I like to spend the most amount of money on. Afterall, your skin is your canvas and you want to have a perfect one, right!? Good, me too!
One of the foundations that I mentioned was the YSL Le Teint Touch Élcat Illuminating Foundation. This is hands down my favorite foundation I have used so far. It is a pricey item for a makeup product but it is SO worth it. I absolutely love the complexion that it gives me. It is a light to medium coverage but can be built for fuller coverage without giving that “cakey” appearance. I have combination skin, I never know when I will wake up terribly dry or very oily. This foundation is extremely suitable for my type of skin which is so hard to find! I would definitely recommend this to anyone with combination to more dry skin! If you have oily skin for the most part, it may not be the best for you since it does give off a dewy complexion!
The second foundation that I am addicted to is the Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation. This foundation is long-wearing and oil-free. It is amazing for those times you have an occasion and cannot be touching up your makeup! You can almost feel the drying and tightening effect is has on your skin as it sets. You may still have to blot with a blotting paper throughout the day but that is inevitable sometimes. This is the PERFECT foundation if you have oily skin so I definitely recommend it if that is the case for you!
I used to use the YSL as day to day foundation and the Smashbox 15 hour wear for special occasions but after a while I started adding a pump of the Smashbox to the YSL which literally created MY perfect foundation. The mixture of these two foundations together work so well with my combination skin that I fell in love. I actually discovered this for my Wedding Day because I could not decide which one I wanted to wear!
What foundations work best for you!?
