Battle of the Base: Foundation Edition

Everyone loves a good foundation, but finding the right one for you can be a bit of a nightmare. I'm sure we've all had our fair share of useless foundations, and ones that look perfect under the lighting of the store but are tango orange when you get home. So with this in mind, I thought I would have a rummage through my collection and pick out my favourite foundations and share them with you :)

First up is Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. This is my summer foundation of choice due to its light texture and good coverage without being cakey on the skin. The light reflecting particles make me look wide awake and give my skin a well needed boost. 
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation is my love/hate foundation. I can get quite oily skin which means that this particular product is pretty useless. However, when my skin is having a good day, this is just a dream. It does have a thick and heavy texture but provides the fullest coverage a girl could want.
Next us is a relatively new one to me and that it Bourjois Happy Light Foundation. This provides a lovely medium coverage that looks extremely natural on the skin. It has pigments in the formula, which aim to make skin look flawless and natural in any light. I definitely have to agree with that.
This next foundation is definitely my favourite. Mac Studio Fix Fluid has been my absolute go to for a while now. It has a medium coverage which is easily buildable, however it can get a touch cakey of you're not careful. It is slightly more matte than all of the others in this post, but the lasting time of this is nothing short of incredible.
Finally, it's Rimmel Match Perfection. This foundation provides a light to medium coverage that can built up into layers to give as much coverage as required. My only negative thing about this is that it is very liquid, so it can be a little messy, but the overall finish is worth it!

So there we have it. My favourite foundations. I find that these all work for me and my skin type, but obviously they wont work for everyone. I would also love to know what your favourite base is? I'm always on the look out for something new to try.


  1. MAC Studio Fix has been my go to for some months now too. It's definitely the best colour match for me I've ever had, and it lasts so long whereas most I need to pile powder on top to stop it going patchy in a few hours.

    I'd love to try the Happy Light foundation too!
