My Top 5 Foundations

A good base is the foundation for every make-up look (see what I did there...). Whether it be a tinted moisturiser or an all singing, all dancing, full coverage foundation- I simply can't leave the house without it. Until my skin is a lot better and I start getting 8 hours of sleep a night, I'll never have the confidence to go without. I've been through my fair share of foundations and I've narrowed down my top 5 to share with you.

1. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
If you're a regular reader then this will come as no surprise to you. I flipping love this foundation! It's medium-full coverage, offers a gorgeous glowy finish and photographs well even with flash. The only downside is that it's on the pricier side yet it still doesn't come with a pump which means lots of precious product is wasted round the rim of the bottle.

2. Mac Face and Body Foundation
This is definitely more on the sheerer side of bases, but it still offers some coverage especially when built up. It's a foundation that can be found in just about every make-up artists kit. It's a water based formula, giving a beautiful fresh glowy finish but it also contains no SPF what so ever so it photographs like an absolute dream. 

3. Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum
This is my favourite drugstore foundation. It offers good coverage, a fresh finish that's semi-matte and it smells gorgeous. The only problem is the selection of shades in this range is pretty poor, I wish Bourjois would extend it.

4. Natural Collection Tinted Moisturiser
I love this product purely for how simple it is. It's just a bog standard tinted moisturiser, it doesn't claim to have incredible skin care benefits so it doesn't flare up my skin. I find this is perfect for days when I really cannot be bothered. I throw it on using my fingers and I'm good to go. 

5. Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation
This does exactly what it says on the tin, it's a full coverage foundation with a kind of mousse texture. I find this is best applied with a sponge such as the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge, as it sheers it out and stops it from becoming quite cakey. I wish I'd bought the next shade up instead (damn the poor lighting in Sephora) and I wish it was a brand that's easier to purchase in the UK. I'm really not a fan of purchasing make-up I've never swatched from the internet especially seeing as it's not the cheapest of brands.
