Beauty | Top 5 Foundations


Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream - A couple of months ago, this was my go-to base product, because I literally wore this all the time. It's quite a watery, thin consistency, but it applies very smoothly and easily. If you have spots, redness or any noticeable imperfections or flaws when it comes to your skin, then this product will reduce the appearance of them and it will even out your skin tone. If you have dry skin, it supposedly hydrates your face, but whether that's true or not, I can't say. I found it made me look a little cakey and flaky at times, but if you are looking for a light, smooth base product that isn't as heavy as foundation, but does a decent job, then I'd recommend this hyped CC cream.


Dermalogica Sheer Tint Moisturiser -  I received this tinted moisturiser as a gift for my birthday back in March and I have liked it ever since I started trying it out. I'd never tried any products from this brand before, but I would recommend it. It has an SPF of 20, which is especially beneficial for these upcoming months as the weather begins to get warmer and people's skin can tend to get oiler. I would say it's quite a matte finish as it doesn't appear dewy on my skin. (not that I have noticed anyway) There is quite a minty, menthol scent when you apply it, but that doesn't really bother me in the slightest, as it's actually pretty refreshing. It's easy to blend in and it just glides on the skin if you know how to apply it properly, either with a brush or your fingers in circular motions.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum - This is my favourite foundation of the moment and it has been for quite a while now. It smells of apricots, which is very pleasant and I don't think many people would be put off by the scent of fruit, if I'm honest. It's quite a dewy formula, hence the serum in the name, but it isn't too runny or too thick, so you don't look cakey or dehydrated. It allows your skin to look dewy without looking like you need to immediately moisturised and scrub at your skin to get the dry patches off. At the moment, I'm not wearing much makeup, but if ever I do, I will wear this foundation as I find it most suitable for my skin and it makes me look radiant at the same time.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - There was a lot of hype surrounding this product a couple of years ago. In the bottle, it appears to be really glittery and sparkly, but it actually isn't. It's one of those products that gives a dewy, radiant finish. Instead of applying super shimmery with tonnes of glitter in it, it makes your skin look luminous, well looked after and glowing. However, saying all of that, I've actually given this product to my mum as I found it too dark for me, which is purely my own fault for picking up the wrong shade, but there has always been a love for this foundation, ever since it was released, which clearly shows just how wonderful it really is.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - I am fully aware that this is not a foundation, nor a BB or CC cream and it is infact a concealer, but I thought I'd add this one in here as I didn't have another foundation I really loved and felt appropriate to rave about and I don't have any other concealers that I particularly like either, so I thought it's a win-win situation if I add this concealer in here. This is probably the most hyped up concealer on the whole of the internet. Everyone consistently uses it and raves about it and I can honestly see why. It does an amazing job at covering up those pesky, dark under-eye circles and sometimes I use this by itself as a substitute for a foundation. It's that great. The only fault I have with this concealer is the shade range. It isn't that amazing, but if you can find a colour that suits you, then that's obviously perfect. If you can't, you can always buy two and mix them up. It doesn't create a sticky texture, oiliness or creasing, so I would definitely recommend it.
