Foundation is one of my favorite makeup tools! And while I’m all for showing my natural skin and giving it some love, foundation is a great for those fancy days. Even in my early twenties I still have the acne issues I developed in my later teen years. So on the days that I want them to go away I like to use a foundation that will cover them well. The three I want to talk about have helped my roommate, my sister, and me through this fall weather.
The first one I want to talk about is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation. This is one that I have tried in the past. It didn’t cover my dark circles and by the end of day it looked like the foundation had washed off. BUT my sister uses this foundation daily and she says it works great for her skin and covers what she needs it to. For her it also stays on all day, which is perfect for the job she has. This foundation can be found at any major department store that sells makeup or at any beauty retailer. The cheapest I have found is around $12-15 which isn’t bad.
The next Foundation I want to talk about is the CoverGirl Aqua Smooth Foundation. Now if you have sisters you know that you sometimes tend to share makeup. So for me, one of my sisters is allergic to something in CoverGirl makeup so just in case I try not to buy it, but I don’t think this line of foundation is a bad one. This one is found at any drug store for at least $10. My roommate uses this one and she says that it applies smoothly and she likes that it is applied as a powder but has a liquid base to it. She is someone who doesn’t wear makeup too often but when she does she says that this one moisturizes her skin and gives her the coverage she needs.
The last Foundation I want to talk about is one that I have recently started using. It’s called Too Faced Born This Way. This one can be found at any beauty retailer and is a little more pricey, at $20-30. But I think this one is worth it because it is not an oil based foundation (which for me feels heavy on my skin throughout the day). This one has a base of coconut water and makes me feel like I’m not wearing any face makeup throughout the day. Also the coconut water hydrates my skin throughout the day.
So there you have it! These are three foundations I would recommend for the Fall/Winter weather, considering that these two seasons tend to dry out the skin more. Try them out! If you have any other Foundations you think I should try out, leave a comment down below!
