For some people its all about the eyes when it comes to makeup, but for me its all about the face. I personally spend twice as long on my face than my eyes, because a bad base of makeup will distract from the eyes anyway. These here are my top 3 foundations, and I have tried my fair share of foundations as it is near impossible to find thee perfect one. They are the Smashbox 15 hour wear Studio Skin Foundation, the Makeup Forever HD Foundation, and of course Loreal’s True match.


I love these all equally as I would use them at different times, for example I would use my Studio Skin if I was a bit tanned etc. Although I must admit I probably have a bit more love for my Makeup Forever Foundation, because it is just perfect and it really does make your face look HD. However it is on the pricey side, so as much as I’d love to wear it on an everyday basis it is an expensive habit, so on an everyday basis I wear my True Match which isn’t very far behind. True match isn’t as high coverage as the Makeup Forever but it is definitely build-able if you want a light or heavy coverage.

The Smashbox Studio Skin is amazing if you have a long day ahead or your heading out clubbing because it really is 15 hour wear and will not budge!The Makeup Forever is so flattering on the face, and as the name suggests it just photographs beautifully so I would recommend this for any occasion you know pictures will be taken. And last but not least my everyday love is the Loreal True Match, because it doesn’t mattify the face and leaves the skin with a natural dewy look and also is very long wearing. 2 out of the 3 are a bit more on the pricey side with the Makeup Forever and Smashbox Studio Skin coming in at around €35, while the Loreal is only €16 so I don’t feel as guilty using it up!

      Thank you! I totally agree once your face is perfect it doesn’t matter about the eyes! x
