Summers in Michigan are so unpredictable, but there’s no reason to let the way your skin looks be! From full face to a light, buildable coverage we have our top 3 foundation verdicts in and believe it or not, 1 of them is an affordable brand you can get from your local drug store!
TARTE Amazonian Clay
For under $40 this ALL natural gem can be found at your local Ulta or Sephora. An oil free, Vegan formula that is matte, breatheable, blendable and good for your skin and soul! When applied with a damp beauty blender you can get a light base with simply blending under eyes and out for a fresh faced look or get full faced coverage with 2 light layers. Beautiful for the summer months! (Disclaimer- if you have DRY SKIN, this may not be the best fit for you)
MAYBELINE – FIT ME
Under $10 and comes in a few different finishes . Also available in a cream stick and concealer with over 30 shades to find your true color formulation! This is a makeup lover and beauty bargain finders dream come true because you truly get the best of both worlds. As a professional artist, this is one foundation that I can actually vouch for that has nice buildable coverage that wont break the bank. I personally don’t use this in my kit for photography purposes, but for your every day use or if you’re slowly building up a kit, this foundation is GREAT! The concealer is great blended out with (our fave) damp beauty blender for the summer time vibes to get a bright eyed look with a quick sweep of bronzer on your cheeks and forehead. If you’re a first timer with foundation and are scared to spend a pretty penny on this staple purchaser, this is a great start. You wont be disappointed!
MAKEUP FOREVER HD
This one is MY FAVE, HANDS DOWN and fave of Kim K too. Well just about everyone, but who’s counting? It’s the most expensive out of all 3, but for about $45 this is one of the BEST staple purchases you’ll ever make. Make Up Forever was originally formulated for under water photo shoots, so you’ll get long wear and camera ready skin with this. You can give your skin a glowy base or a full coverage. If you cant tell, we love all of our foundations to be buildable. This is key to the perfect application. Available in stick form as well. It’ll be your new BFF. We promise!
