diversity in complexions

Want to know what’s in my kit? I’ve tried a myriad of foundations in my lifetime. I have found that some work better than others, some blend with creamy quality, others are true to color and some are perfect for every function from the face to legs. I’ve selected my favorite liquid foundations that I’ve got in my kit. This doesn’t include creams or stick but here they are, my favorite liquid foundations in random order!

M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15
A modern foundation that combines a natural matte finish and medium-buildable coverage with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15. Comfortable and long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours. Applies smoothly, builds coverage quickly and easily. Contains specially treated micronized pigments and soft-focus powders for a super-smooth look that helps minimize the appearance of imperfections. Absorbs and disperses oil. Contains special skin-conditioning ingredients. Oil free. 

Why I ♡ it? It’s full coverage, buildable, dries matte, looks fabulous in HD and is great for men and to quickly balance a multi-toned complexion.

FLESH Firm Fresh Stick Foundation come in 40 true shades that glide on the skin to give medium coverage and a dewy finish. Firm Flesh sticks are multipurpose; they let you cover, conceal, and contour on your own terms.

Identify your shade, ideally in the store, by stroking three close matches on your lower cheek and walking to a window to assess them in natural light. The one that seems to disappear is your soulmate. To apply, use a sponge or brush, or stroke directly on your skin, starting at the center of your face and blending outward with a brush, sponge or your fingers.

For concealer: Pick a stick that’s two or three shades lighter than your foundation and dab under your eyes or on any other spots with your fingers or a small brush.

For contour: Choose a darker shade and apply to the hollows of your face, then blend like crazy

Why I ♡ it? The foundation is weightless coverage that looks like skin, not foundation. This long-wearing, hydrating foundation minimizes the appearance of pores, comes in 16 shades and is great for blending and customizing colors for clients.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, $42.00
If you’ve got dry skin, try NARS Sheer Glow foundation. A glowing, satin-finish foundation with sheer and buildable coverage. Replete with skincare benefits and the NARS Complexion Brightening Formula, skin is hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. When used daily, Sheer Glow Foundation improves skin brightness, radiance and texture. Dermatologist tested. Non-comedogenic. Fragrance free For normal to dry skin types. 

Why I ♡ it? On a personal note, I use NARS foundation in New Guinea (I have normal skin), my sister wears Maccao (possesses oily skin) and my mother darling is wearing Cadiz (has combination skin). These incredible foundations work beautifully on 3 different skin types and tones. I highly recommend !! 

These are the liquid foundations that I use on a daily basis, these products make my life easier and my makeup applications flawless – I hope you enjoy this post! What are your favorite liquid foundations?
