Top 4 Foundations

Hemayal and I have a warm/yellow undertone but different skin types as I have combination to oily skin and she has dry skin, I have acne prone skin with acne marks and she has clear skin but these 4 foundations work great for the both of us so if you’re skin type matches ours then here are the Top 4 suitable foundations for you.

Being a blogger getting ready is an essenital part of our work and these foundations stay on perfectly during shoots and events that last around 6-7 hrs.

1 – Giorgio Armani Luminious Silk Foundation

dfv

As the name suggests, this foundation literally makes your skin look like silk. It gives a luminous feel to your skin but if you’re looking for some coverage then this is not the perfect foundation for you. You can still make it work by mixing it with a foundation that has good coverage but it won’t do such a great job alone. Works best during good skin days.

Originally for $64, sells for 9-10k in Pakistan.
Shade 4.5

Pro –
Not cakey – Skin like
Luminous feel

Cons – 
Expensive
Doesn’t give a good coverage

2 – Maybelline 24hr Super Stay Foundation

What we love the most is that despite being full coverage this specific foundation is very lightweight and doesn’t look cakey AT ALL. You have to work with it quickly since it tends to dry down on the skin and you can’t blend it if you leave it on for too long. Also, we got a few dms where people said it oxidizes but it didn’t oxidize on either of us, despite having it on for hours.

We got #Maybelline Superstar 24H full coverage foundation for 2199/- from maybellines counter at Packages Mall, Lahore. It’s available on almost all maybelline racks and counters. It is originally for $9, not sure why it’s so expensive here.

Shade – Ivory

Pros –
Full coverage
Matte
Light weight

Cons –
Dries quickly

3 – Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation

fjfpjer
Another light weight foundation that helps your skin breath and at the same time covers your imperfections. Actually one of the very few foundations that has a good range of option for medium skin tones like ours. Full Coverage, water resistent foundation perfect for long hours.

Originally for $12, online pages sell it for 1500 onwards.
Shade – 02/03
Pros
Lightweight
Buildable
Flawless Finish

Cons 
Itches some people

4 – Loreal Infalliable 24hr Foundation

hoh

Claims to be a stay fresh foundation that fights makeup meltdown and gives a flawless finish throughout the day. It pretty much does do what it claims and doesn’t dry out on the skin.

Originally for $14, sells for around 3k in Pakistan.
Shade – Natural Rose

Pros
Medium to high coverage
long hour foundation.

Cons
Expensive for drugstore
Tends to get oily after a couple of hours

MOTD –

So, a lot of people who follow me on my Instagram have been asking me for the products I used to get the look I recently tried on for a wedding!

Here is the final look!
Here is the final look!
And here are the products I used to get this look!

And here are the products I used to get this look!

Firstly, I primed my face with The body Shops ‘All-In-One Instablur’ Primer as it is absolutely amazing and it helps in reducing the appearance of the pores and hides blemishes. Then I applied my very favorite Maybelline’s Dream Nude foundation in 010 Ivory.

After priming and applying this light foundation on my face I went on with doing my eye makeup, I started off by applying brown shades on the middle and the outer crease of my eyelids, then I went in with the black eye shadow and applied it on the eyelid and merged it with the browns on the crease. I applied a white eye shadow on the inner crease and the brow bone. I completed the look by gluing a pair of falsies on.

After completing the eye makeup, I applied another layer of foundation, I used the maybelline’s fit me foundation this time and then concealed my dark circles with La girls concealer. I contoured my face with La girls concealer in toast and applied Rimmel’s bronzer on top of it, I used loreal’s blush on for the cheeks and loreal’s glittery nude eye shadow on the cheek bones and the bridge of my nose for highlighting. I used luscious eyebrow kit for my brows!

Kryolan Tv foundation stick: (ton ivory) I use this stick for medium to heavy coverage mainly when i go out for parties or weddings. The reason why i dont use this base daily is that its a heavy coverage and the daily use of it may lead to breakouts. As it's in a a dry cream form i always tend to moisturize my skin and use a primer before applying this base, after applying the base i always make sure that i blend it with a beauty blender so that it doesn't look cakey or leave any patches on the skin. This base is perfect for concealing dark spots and dark circles and its defo my fav for a heavy coverage!

Body shops All-In-One BB cream: Light and Dark shade. I use this color adapting tinting cream in the light and the dark shade, i use the light one for normal days light coverage and the dark one if i ever feel like trying any tan look. Again, this light coverage sets pretty nicely in the skin and doesnt fill the lines in between or cake up. BB creams are a blessing as they give amazing coverage without having to moisturize or waste time in applying a primer on your face, its just one thing and you're good to go with a little blush on and a gloss!
