My Top 3 Foundation Picks

I have seen a few bloggers doing posts and videos about their favourite foundations so of course I am ready to jump on that bandwagon and share with you my go-to products for my base. If you are a regular reader on these parts then you will have probably predicted what will be included in this post but if you are on the hunt for something new read on. I do tend to go for higher-end foundations because I just find that the quality and lasting power is slightly better. Saying that I do have quite alot of lower-end favourites but I do save those for shorter days.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
Of course I had to start off with the foundation love of my life. I discovered this earlier on this year and it has been my go to base ever since. It is a medium to full coverage foundation with a satin finish. It is so longlasting which is why I tend to reach for it on an everyday basis. It works well with so many different brushes and with fingers which is great for early mornings when you grab the nearest thing to you! I love this foundation so much I have it in two shades, Monte Blanc and Fiji - which if you look at swatches online are miles apart but I do love my fake tan! Another thing I love about this foundation is that it is SPF free which is perfect for flash photography- no ghost face! It is the most expensive out of my three picks but one bottle will do me 4-5 months so you really do get your moneys worth! Available online here.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream
For days where I want a slightly lighter coverage I always reach for my Bourjois CC Cream. This offers amazing coverage while still feeling amazingly lightweight on the skin. I totally ignored the whole BB/CC cream hype but this one slipped itself into my make-up bag and it is a keeper! It contains different colour correcting pigments which even out your skintone. Whenever I wear this my skin looks completely radiant with a bit of a glow. I do have to powder this to make it last the whole day but other than that I can not fault it. It is the cheapest of my picks and available online here. You can get it online here.

YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation
This is the most recent addition to my foundation collection, and it is actually one I "borrowed" from my mum. This again is a more medium-full coverage foundation and is extremely long-lasting throughout the day. The reason I am such a big fan of this foundation is that while I'm wearing it it seems to improve my skin and how it looks. I was going through a bad skin patch a few months ago and during the time I was wearing this I found that it made such an improvement to my skin. It is definitely on the dewier side of things so if you are an oilier skinned girl maybe steer clear of this one! Available online here.

If you have any other base recommendations for me please let me know.
