I have a handful of foundations that I use and love, but I have my three favorites when it comes to “higher” end foundations. These are my ride or dies, my holy grail products. They never do me wrong and I can always count on them to do what they claim.
- Becca’s Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme: I don’t remember which Youtuber it was who raved about this but it sparked enough interest in me to go out and check it out for myself. I don’t think it’s something I would have picked up on my own because I’m not so drawn to Becca products. (Although I do have a few Jaclyn Hill products that I love.) But I’m glad I picked this up. It does everything I want it to do. Because I have a lot of hyper pigmentation and acne scarring, I’m looking for something with a heavier coverage that won’t melt off or make me look cakey and I think this does just that. I will say that if you have any dryness though, this will pick that up so this may not work well for someone with dry skin. I’m oily/combination so this does work for me.
- Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere Velvet: I’ve heard/seen mixed reviews for this foundation online but I have to say it works wonderfully for me. I use a Beauty Blender to apply and it goes on smoothly. It can be medium to full coverage so it is build-able. But my major pros for this: it lasts all day, covers what I did it to cover AND looks natural on my skin. Winning!
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: I mean I could talk about this foundation all day long, and I know I’ve mentioned it several times already on my blog. This is the creme de la creme! My real ride or die. I’ve been using this foundation for years now, and anytime I stray away… I ALWAYS COME BACK. I’m in the shade Desert Beige and it’s my perfect shade. It does everything the other two do PLUS more.
