A lot of you ask me about the best foundation for an everyday use. The kind of foundation that will give us the no makeup makeup look and something that doesn’t require that much of a pro skill to use. So, I checked out Sephora and found everything I was looking for. Here are the types and best examples of an everyday foundation:
TYPE: Liquid Foundation
We know how hot the weather can be here in the country and we want a foundation that feels just like the skin. My personal pick would be a liquid foundation, preferably one with an oil-free formula. This type of foundation, which has the widest range of coverage from sheer to full, is best applied with a brush or beauty sponge.
BEST EXAMPLE: Cover FX Natural Finish Oil-Free Foundation
For a foundation that claims to start off sheer, Cover FX Natural Finish Oil-Free Foundation has a coverage sent from heaven. I applied this for the first time with a brush and in one swipe, it instantly covered up the dark spots on my cheeks. It has a thicker consistency compared to other liquid foundations that I’ve tried, but blending was never a problem. A little goes a long way with this one.
TYPE: Cream Foundation
The usual cream foundations are a lot heavier and they come in a more solid form. On the other hand, some cream foundation products are lightweight and they focus on skin care properties than pigments or coverage. Examples of these are the Korean-invented BB Creams and CC Creams. Not only are they convenient for everyday use because they’re packed with skin care benefits such as skin correction, moisturizing properties plus coverage and color, but the consistency isn’t that thick enough that it can be applied with fingers just like your normal cream moisturizer.
BEST EXAMPLE: Burberry Fresh Glow B.B. Cream
I’ve a tried a few B.B. Creams from South Korea and one thing that holds me back from using them on a regular basis is the white cast it leaves my face. A little hesitant at first, I had to get a B.B. Cream, so I got myself the Burberry Fresh Glow B.B. Cream in the shade Nude Honey. To my surprise, this shade was the perfect yellow-toned shade for me and it gave me the prettiest finish far from the ghostly one that I always get from other products.
TYPE: Cushion Foundation
Another innovation from South Korea, the cushion foundation has been making waves in the beauty industry. From B.B. to C.C. Cream cushion compacts, many companies have released their version of foundation cushion compacts for those who are in need of a better coverage and deeper shades. This type of foundation normally has sheer to medium coverage, enough to give you a flawless and even finish.
BEST EXAMPLE: Sephora Wonderful Cushion
Where have you been all my life? At first, I didn’t see myself using this product because I felt like there’s less product in it and that I wouldn’t be able to get the value I wanted for my money. Now that I was able to try one, I understand the reason for the hype. It’s a genius way to bring a foundation with you without the hassle of bringing out a bottle, a brush, and keeping it hygienic. The Sephora Wonderful Cushion Foundation has it all – sleek and handy packaging, beautiful coverage, and a good range of shades.
TYPE: Powder Foundation
I have oily skin and I tend to sweat a lot, what should I use? A powder foundation will work best if this is your worry. This keeps your face matte for hours and absorbs the excess oil as you sweat. However, this looks more flattering on smooth and flawless skin compared to a skin with texture problems.
BEST EXAMPLE: Sephora Mineral Powder Foundation Compact
If you’re looking for a foundation compact that you can rely on, this Mineral Powder Foundation from Sephora will not disappoint. Moreover, inside this handy compact is a mirrror, sponge, and mineral pressed powder that’s packed with natural ingredients. Not to mention, this line has a good range of shades and there’s a good number specifically for warm-toned skin.
