Less is more for your face.





For today's beauty blogpost, i choose to talk about the foundations that i've  been loving since years. As you already know if you follow me since 6 years, you already know that i'm not a big fan of full coverage foundations for an everyday makeup. I found them not really wearable outside of a photoshoot or a night out , and as the quotes said, less is more. Especially when it's all about face makeup. I do try a lot of foundations,  but every time i go  back to my old favorites it's because i don't find it natural to cover everything on my skin, cover this blemish that makes me roll your eyes when i look in the mirror, or cover those freckles that i used to can not handle. The makeup we wear daily defines us as a person in our society (i know it's sad but we created this world we can't complain about it tho) , and I would never really feel myself with makeup that is not who I am inside. 


Nars Sheer Glow (Gobi) according to François Nars, it's a sheer foundation with a buildable coverage, well for me in my case it's more a light-medium coverage foundation. This foundation has a natural and a glowy finish. It leaves the skin hydrated and more luminous with a softer and smoother finish. I do already had finish two bottles of this foundation, we can say that it's probably one of my most used and favorites foundations. 


The Make-Up Forever Waterblend (Y215), is my last summer favorite foundation, for me it's more a skin tint than a real foundation, quite similar to the Face and Body from mac, but with a wider shade range, which for me is a big pro because of my really fair skin, i do have to say that i used to be a massive fan of the older version of this foundation which was also named face and body so i wasn't surprised with this one. The finish is quite dewy, if you have an combination to oily skin i will suggest to set this foundation with a nice mattifying powder and to apply a mattifying primer (my favorite? the makeup forever mattifying primer is the best in my opinion) 


The Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint (light and medium), is probably my most sheerest product into my entire collection. The brand, created by Emily Weiss is a brand who democratise beauty, the brand put the skin health before the makeup that's the philosphy because the beauty world has historically been an industry based on experts telling you, the customer, what you should or shouldn’t be using on your face. The Perfecting Skin Tint even out the discolouration and leaves the skin smooth and dewy, I use this product when i want something but also nothing on my face (yes it's a paradox, but i'm a women)


The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum (51 Light Vanilla), was the first enough light foundation that i could find at the drugstore and that was almost ten years ago. Since the packaging as changed a bit, but it's still as good as he used to be back in a day(and still with the fruity scent). It's a mixture between a liquid foundation and a cream foundation. It's an HYBRID. It gives me coverage without hiding my freckles, if you have a normal to dry skin i will highly recommend to check this one out, It contains vitamin C, E, and B5 that helps the skin to look fresh and radiant.


The It Cosmetics CC Cream (Fair), do we have to talk about the packaging of mine? totally rubbed of, almost done, that's for sure how much i love this CC Cream. I don't know if i can say that this CC cream has a light coverage, because for a CC cream it's full coverage base in my opinion, if i have to re-categorize this product as a foundation i would say it's a light-buildable medium coverage. As you know, BB and CC cream are normally in the sheerer side (like the Laura Mercier Tinted moisturizer) but this one, (oh dude!)  is a perfection in a tube (and yes with a pump!) what i like about this product is the SPF 50+ but specially the Chemical Filtre Free SPF, i don't have a sensitive skin but i hate when a foundation or a BB/CC cream has a chemical SPF. this product is moisturising, and it protects your skin from sun damage and especially from the UVA. 

Since I discovered all these products, I admit in all honesty not to use the rest of my collection and thus i have begin to get rid little by little of the products I don't really need. I try to restrict all this to have a more minimalist collection which corresponds to my needs but also to what I really like to use. I'm thinking of writing you a blogpost very soon on this radical change.



Love.
A.
