I've been on the ultimate search for a good foundation and being such a pale person it's a tricky task, I want no-orange, long lasting, full coverage that doesn't look cakey! That's not too much to ask... is it? I actually made a promise to myself earlier on in the year to quit high-street foundation and go mid to high, has this worked out for me? Well, yes. I've now found 3 foundations I will happily use all for different reasons!
3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 01 - The first foundation I turned too, I picked the light option at the time as I was really suffering with my acne and didn't want to suffocate it with the original version(if you've tried it you'll know what I mean, it's heavy in all aspects) on the website it says 1.0 is the lightest but in store I've 100% seen 0.5 too which I very nearly brought. 1.0 on me is a little dark but blends really well in the summer months, set properly and it doesn't move for a good few hours. I don't have super oily skin but after a while in summer heat it does move and it does transfer. I'm not 100% sure I'll purchase again but I'll 100% use the whole thing up!
2. Vichy Dermablend in Porcelain - My second favourite, this is one of the newest shades out. I adore how it blends in and creates such a flawless base. In terms of colour matching this one is the best for my pasty skin. The one thing I always think when I wear it is 'I hate how this applies' but once you let it sit and set into your skin it's literally perfect! I don't even feel the need to powder over this as the coverage is so full but the finish is also beautiful i'd say its semi matte but not shiny. It just gives you a gorgeous glow.
1. MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC13 - My Ultimate #1 I brought this foundation on a complete whim while down in Brighton and I've never looked back. The first thing that really caught my eye was the colour, not too yellow and not too pink it falls comfortably in the middle it's also pale enough for me which is always a winner. If you follow me on instagram the foundation i'm wearing 95% of the time is this and I've actually written up a full review HERE if your interested, It gives me the perfect colour match, while being full coverage but not cakey and lasts a really long time as long as I prep and powder once applied and once afterwards!
So there we go! I hope this was insightful for anyone looking for a new foundation or if your a pale girl like me you can try a few of these out!
What's your favourite foundation?
