My Favorite Traditional Foundations!

Updated: Apr 30, 2021

Hey beauties! Happy #makeupmonday! Today's post is for those of you who prefer traditional foundation for your everyday makeup looks! I wanted to discuss a few of my favorite traditional foundations! I have 4 favorites.

1. Powder

Now beauties, I normally don't recommend a powder foundation, but MAC's takes the cake! It really is a great product! Smooth in texture, it doesn't crease, or enhance fine lines! MAC Studio Fix Foundation has a medium, buildable coverage.

I recommend powder foundation for oily skin types.

2. Tinted Moisturizer

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is absolutely lovely. A lightweight coverage with a skin-like finish. This tinted moisturizer is so great, I even recommended it for my 96 year-old grandmother! (No surprise, she loved it!)

I recommend using a tinted moisturizer when you want to have a light coverage for your complexion, but don't want it to be totally noticeable. This is a great option for your everyday makeup look! Can be used on any skin type.

3. Liquid

As you know, this foundation is a staple in my kit for a buildable coverage! Available in 50 shades, this foundation is a high-performing product. Easy to apply with a brush or your fingers, smooth finish.

I recommend using this foundation when you want a flawless finish. Of course you can apply until you reach your desired coverage. Can be used on any skin type.

4. Creme

This is a newer addition to my kit, but I really love it! I really was not a fan of creme foundations, until this one! The formula is very easy to work with, can be mixed with moisturizer, and is also a buildable coverage! Cinema Secrets is a more pro-friendly brand, but you don't have to be a professional to purchase!

I recommend using this foundation when you are attending a special event (your wedding included), and are ready to look fabulous! Make sure you are following the proper skincare routine before applying this one. Can be used with any skin type.
