One of the hardest parts of learning to wear makeup and continuing to use makeup is choosing the right foundation for your skin.
Given the fact that foundation takes into account your sun level, skin texture, and skin color it can be complicated choosing the right foundation for you.
In fact, you may or may not be surprised to learn that many women daily wear the wrong makeup for their skin.
So where does this leave you, hopefully reading the reviews below of a few products that may make your search for the perfect foundation a little simpler!
Laura Mercier: Best when applied with a sponge, the foundation is more of a cream than a liquid and provides a nice even smooth finish when applied across the skin.
Plus, since it is a non-oil based product it is excellent for those who want the coverage of a liquid foundation without more oil.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk: Feather light, the Giorgio liquid foundation also works double time to eliminate redness, attack any discoloration on your face, and hides blotchy spots. Even better, there are 14 shades to choose from to ensure you get the best fit for you.
Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse: So lightweight that you may feel as if you forgot your foundation every day, the liquid foundation is easy to apply with just your fingers and has a moisturizer built in that helps keep your face smooth and fresh without inspiring breakouts.
Revlon Age Defying Makeup: Not great for oily skins as the foundation has a lot of oil in it, it is a definite no-no for anyone with recurrent acne problems. However, it does provide all day coverage and is very lightweight along with the astounding SPF factor of 30.
Elizabeth Arden: For those who want minimal coverage with little weight, this may be the moisturizer for you. As a bonus, it does not bunch up on dry patches and has a built in SPF of 15.
Bobbi Brown: There is a reason this tint moisturizer won the ‘Best New Foundation’ award in ’04 from health Magazine, it easily treats extra dry skin and provides light coverage at the same time. It also works wonders to reduce lines across the face.
Avon: Effective for young skin, it leaves behind a nice floral scent. However, if you are over 40 it will wreck havoc on your skin bunching out across lines and making dry spots even more visible.
Hydramax: Lightweight skin moisturizer that gives a natural tint to the skin while keeping your face moist and glowing instead of shining. It also helps rehydrate your skin since the butterfly lavender extract helps trap water proteins.
