Foundation is something I wear every day because I have lots of small red scars on my cheeks from my ‘initial breakout’ when I first went on roaccutane – they’re slowly fading but I like to cover them up. My favourite cover ups are as follows:
- Garnier BB Blur Cream is what I wear every day – it contains moisturiser so it stops your skin from getting too dry over the course of the day and it’s nice and light – you don’t have to apply very much for it to cover everything up. It works best with a little bit of setting powder on top (the best ones are the MAC setting powder if you’re willing to spend a bit more money or the Rimmel ones).
- Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Foundation is the only foundation I have ever used!! I have it in the ‘champagne’ shade and it’s nice and light and looks really natural (if you don’t put layers and layers on!) and is a little thicker and nicer for nights out and one-offs than the every day Garnier BB cream (especially because it costs a bit more). I still use a setting powder on top of it but you really don’t need to.
- MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is good for speedy touch ups or even as a setting powder – it’s light and the colours are great (I have it in NW25) and it doesn’t gather in dry skin areas too drastically, especially when applied well.
Don’t forget to moisturise (and even prime if it’s a smart occasion) lots before you put foundation on and take it off before bed so you don’t break out or even become allergic to it!!
