Hi boo! Do you know any foundations that are lightweight, have full coverage, and long lasting? Preferably drugstore brands? Ive been using revlon colorstay and it feels kind of heavy on my skin,
If you want something light weight, long lasting and medium to full coverage try foundations like Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse, Revlon Color Stay Whipped or Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast. All these foundations have a more whipped, airy consistency not as creamy and heavy on the skin. You might also like Loreal True Match, it’s very liqudy and light weight yet you can keep layering for fuller coverage without getting cakey.
Also try applying foundation with a dense foundation brush like a flat top or rounded kabuki brush. These brushes really buff and blend the foundation into the skin to get the most even and thin layer possible so it looks natural and feels light weight but still keeping the coverage.
I'm going back to school soon and I have no idea what foundation to get. I already have the NARS Creamy Concealer but I don't no what to pair with it. I don't like super heavy foundations, but I like more coverage than the average BB cream. I'm acne prone too. Thanks😊
Some great school friendly, light to medium coverage foundations are
Urban Decay Naked
Revlon Nearly Naked
Rimmel Stay Matte
Loreal True Match
Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast (good for oily skin)
Bare Minerals Matte (their original version is a tad shiny, when used with a kabuki brush you can get awesome coverage)
Garnier BB Cream for Oily/Combination Skin (good coverage!)
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (less heavy than original version, good for oily skin)
Dior Skin Forever
All these foundations are light weight, a satin (semi matte) finish so they’re more long wearing and have a medium to build able coverage. All easy to apply and easy to wear foundations, nothing too crazy or cakey! :)
What are some powders you recommend, mostly drugstore but some high end? I am desperate for new powder because I have Rimmel Stay Matte, Revlon Nearly Naked, neutrogena skin clearing mineral powder and MAC Studio Fix and I need just a good powder that won't cake up my foundation and looks natural
For a natural looking powder I really love Maybelline Fit Me powder & MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural. They arent too matte and don’t have too much coverage. The key to have natural looking foundation is trying not to be too matte and applying too much powder. Skin naturally has a slight sheen and isnt super matte/powdery so powder is usually what makes someone look cakey.
Translucent powder is AWESOME when trying to not look cakey because it sets your foundation so it lasts all day, blurs imperfections and pores yet looks so natural because it goes on colorless. Theyre often called finishing or setting powders because you can use them over regular face powder to make your face look extra airbrushed. You’ll never look cakey with translucent powder. However it can make your face look white in flash photography at night so I usually use it as an every day powder not a night out powder if I plan on being photographed. Laura Mercier makes a great slightly tinted translucent powder so it’s not too white. My other favorite translucent powders are ELF"s HD powder & Tarte’s Translucent powder :)
