My foundation collection

Dior Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup- 021 Linen
-Long lasting, luminous finish. Medium to full coverage. Consistency is a bit thicker and heavier than I like but the finish is nice.

YSL Teint Resist- 05 Peach
-Long lasting, quite powdery finish when you first apply but after an hour or so it gives a satin finish. Color selection could be better. If you can find the perfect color match then this would be the perfect foundation.

Bourjois Healthy Mix- 52 Vanilla
-Long lasting, but heavily scented which could aggitate sensitive skins.  Gives a satin finish to the skin. Color is a bit too light and yellow for me.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation- 5.5 beige
-Color is good for me when I self tan. Gives a luminous glowy finish and feels really light on the skin. Medium coverage. Probably best for people with dry skin.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere- 30 Beige
-Semi-matte finish, medium to full coverage. Long lasting but you have to work really quickly with application cause it dries fast. Good for photos.

Chanel Teint Innocence Cream Compact- 2.5 Soft Bisque
-Dewy luminous finish with medium coverage that's buildable. Heavier feel since its a cream compact but good for on the go.

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Foundation- 3.25 Cool Beige
-Natural Finish. Coverage is light but buildable. This one looks better throughout the day.

Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free- Light Tint
-sheer to light coverage with Semi matte finish.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer- Nude
-sheer coverage

For MAC reference I'm about a NC25.

  1. Awesome awesome post! Extremely helpful! I love a dewy look but haven't found something that gives me that plus good coverage.. And I think from your video Bobbi Brown repair foundation sounds perfect!

    Thanks! =)
