These days social media has me feeling up, down, and all over the place! Things are constantly changing in the the worlds of Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter and you never really know how an algorithm change will affect how easily (or not) people will see your content. It can get a bit discouraging, but something just happened on Instagram Stories that breathed new life into the Instagram game – Instagram Stories fill-in-the blanks templates! They’re fun to fill out and to read and I was inspired to create one of my own for foundations.
Yep, I called it Foundations For All Occasions and sent it out into Insta-world with a glaring typo! Oh, well!
But really, it was a fun project and I really did enjoy going into my makeup collection to pick my current favorite foundations. There were even a couple I neglected to include a couple of my favorites in my original post that I’ll share with you now.
My go-to foundation for when…
… I want to glow is IT Cosmetics CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder. I wasn’t feeling this powder foundation for a while, but I used it a few weeks ago and fell madly and deeply in love with it. It really does give skin a lovely glow and doesn’t make my skin overly oily.
… I want full coverage is Huda Beauty #FauxFilter in Baklava. There was so much hype around this foundation when it was first released, and I’m glad to say that it was justified. The coverage is incredible!
… I need a budget friendly option is Wet n Wild Photo Focus. This is definitely an excellent foundation that works beautifully for medium to full coverage and is well under $5. The downfall? A very limited shade range.
… I want to see my skin is Urban Decay Naked One & Done. Yes, this is my ultimate favorite BB Cream/Tinted Moisturizer-type product that gives my skin lightweight coverage it needs. I didn’t take a photo because my tube has seen better days, but included another favorite I use on a daily basis, the IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Compact cream foundation.
… I’m in the mood for Matte is Urban Decay All Nighter. This is one of those full coverage foundations that covers so well and yet feels super lightweight. When I wear it I feel like my skin has taken on otherworldly dimensions!
… I need an old faithful is Make Up For Ever Ultra HD and Estee Lauder Double Wear. Oh, how I adore these two foundations that really work incredibly well. They both offer medium coverage that can be built up into fuller coverage and work so well with my normal-to-oily skin. If I had to pick just one foundation to use for the rest of my life, I’d easily choose either one of these. The difference? The Make Up For Ever isn’t as matte as the Estee Lauder option.
