Top High End Foundations

Top High End Foundations | The Lipstick Tales

I get a LOT of questions on what face makeup I use, and a lot of times it varies by the day! I’m a huge advocate of using high-end makeup on your face, because I always want the very best on my skin. Here are my top 3 foundations that I wear on rotation.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet

I absolutely love this foundation, and I wear shade B40. It makes my skin look completely flawless, and feels like there’s nothing on my skin. It can be hard to find a foundation that sits just right on oily skin, considering most just kind of slip off. This foundation has such a strange consistency (it seems SO runny!) but works perfectly on normal to oily skin. I definitely would not recommend this one to anyone with remotely dry skin, and if that’s you, try this one instead! But for most days, this is my go-to! Keep in mind too, a little bit goes a long way with this product.

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue

If you don’t like a heavy foundation, this is the one for you. It’s pretty similar to a tinted moisturizer, but the consistency is almost a bit more like a gel. I typically prefer a little bit more coverage out of a foundation than this gives, but it’s also buildable, so you can get more coverage out of it if you want to. I didn’t think that I was going to like this foundation at all because it’s marketed more to dry skin types, but I’ve found it really works well for all skin! Sometimes oily/combo skin overproduces oil because of a lack of moisture, and this product really ensures your skin gets the moisture it needs. Another great thing about this product is that the color range is very forgiving and relatively easy to find the right match. I have both buttercream and ginger, and I’ve found that both shades can be blended to match my skin well.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD 

This is the newest foundation that I’ve tried. I heard so many good things about it that I thought I’d give it a try, and I wound up loving it! The shade range has a TON of colors, so no one should have a problem finding the right match. I wear shade 123/Y365. HD foundations were developed to make your skin look amazing on camera, and I can promise you that it does just that! I’ve been wearing this pretty much everyday, and my only complaint is that it doesn’t seem to wear as well as the day goes on. (If your skin isn’t as oily as mine you might not have this problem though!) Definitely be sure to moisturize well and prime before using this foundation. I’ve found it does look best in the first few hours of wear, so that’s just something to keep in mind.
