Foundation Dupes, high end & its drugstore match
ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
Luminous with NARS!
I love foundation! Am I fine with my natural skin? Of course! Do I prefer a smooth, glowing, dewy skin? OF COURSE! 😆 For years I’ve been using a mix of 1 drop each Lancôme Teint Idole + Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation and I really, really love how it looks. Buuuuut I also love experimenting, because makeup is fun. I saw a review of NARS - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and wow, it looked gorgeous on the skin. I have many favorites from NARS but I’ve never tried a foundation. So, yep, I bought this foundation! I was able to choose a great color match online. The first thing I noticed was how creamy and smooth the foundation is. It glides on the skin effortlessly and blends really easily. And wow, it gives a luminous, ethereal dewy glow. I tend to be oily, so I prepped my skin with products that aren’t too heavy and I used my favorite HOURGLASS - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 . I love this foundation! It’s so pretty on the skin. It definitely lives up to its name, IMO. Would I wear it in the summer with the heat? Probably not, but I’m loving it in these drier months. I was afraid by end of day I would be a shiny mess but it really held up and lasted all day. Is it better than my mix of Lancôme and Shiseido? Not better, just different and I will continue using it. The pictures don’t do this foundation justice. It’s really pretty in person. Have you tried it? Do you like it?
My current favorite foundation!
Hey Beauties! As someone with dry to combo skin, I struggle to find a foundation that works for my skin type and concerns, and matches my complexion. I stumbled upon it in Sephora, and thought a bit pricy, it seemed promising! I’ve been loving the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation lately! NARS - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation 🤎Great for combination skin! It’s dewy and semi-matte, so it gives the skin a nice glow, but it does dry down so it won’t slip and move around which is great for my oily girls. 🤎 Very easy to blend and very buildable, so it is good for beginners! I suggest using using a foundation brush, as it is a more wet foundation and the sponge will soak up the product. Because it’s hydrating, I use a mattifying primer underneath, and I always set with translucent powder. 🤎 Although it is in the pricier side, I can use one pump for my whole face and it gives amazing coverage! I wear it almost everyday, and it takes me forever to finish the bottle. I would say it wears with no issues for about 7 hours, and then I start getting a bit oily in my t-zone and need to touch up with powder. Otherwise, it’s set in please and good to go- no creasing or fading here! 🤎 The shade range is pretty good, with an emphasis on undertones so it’s likely you can find something that works for you!

BEST 👏🏽 DRUGSTORE 👏🏽 FOUNDATION
I have been using this foundation forever. I don’t even try new ones because nothing has ever beat the price and the quality of this product for me! I have acne prone, SUPER OILY skin, so this is the only foundation I ever use to combat some of my oil. Plus I have hyperpigmentation and this leaves such a beautiful soft matte, healthy finish and medium coverage on the skin😍 I use it for my everyday look and even when I go out and I’m wearing more makeup. It works for everything. It lasts all day and keeps the coverage even on my oily skin. Honestly even when I touch up on my nose during the day, it still doesn’t look cakey and nasty but still beautiful. Plus half the time I don’t use primer so it’s just this foundation that is magic 💓 They also extended their shade range and I’m such an odd shade of neutral but I found my perfect match in this foundation and I’ve gotten tons of my friends obsessed with their formula! It’s genius Swipe 👉🏽 to see my everyday makeup look 🥳 L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation
Drugstore dupe for my favourite foundation!
Dupe Alert...❗️❗️ The Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation has some striking similarities to one of my favourite foundations the @itcosmetics your skin but better CC + illumination. Even the packaging has a very similar resemblance. After trying out the Maybelline Dream Urban Cover for a couple of weeks I can say that this drugstore foundation is definitely a great dupe for the It cosmetics your skin but better CC. Both of their consistencies are pretty much the same and they both have an SPF of 50 which is great for protecting your skin during the summer months. This foundation claims to have antioxidants that benefit your skin by protecting it from certain environmental stressors. Like the it cosmetics foundation it provides great coverage and also includes skin benefits. MAYBELLINE - Dream Urban Cover Foundation SPF 50 What I love about the Dream Urban Cover is that it doesn’t have a scent to it like the IT cosmetics one does it’s also a fraction of the cost of the IT cosmetics CC. The Maybelline foundation retails for 9.96 Canadian at Walmart and the IT cosmetics foundation retails for 52 Canadian which is quite the price difference for a very similar product. I’ve gotten a similar wear out of both these foundations and if you want my advice I would save your money on the IT cosmetics one and go for the drugstore option instead, your wallet will be thanking you later. Also the Maybelline foundation has a larger shade range of 21 shades and the IT cosmetics one has only 12 shades to choose from. Have you tried this foundation yet? Will you be ditching the IT cosmetics one for this cheaper option? 😘🌼☀️
MAYBELLINE-Dream Urban Cover Foundation SPF 50
This foundation is so underrated, I have never heard anybody talk about it! It is less than $10, and provides a medium coverage that is perfect for everyday wear! I bought it two months ago and it has quickly become my favorite, and I reach for it every day. I have mine in the shade 081 Fair Ivory, and it matches perfectly. I also like that it has sunscreen in it, but doesn’t have flashback at all!RIMMEL - London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Liquid Foundation

Good morning!! Just a little post to show you how AMAZING my make up works! As you can see I have HUGE bags under my eyes! These pictures were taking 4 hour hours apart on the same day! I know I always brag about my estee lauder foundation but I’m telling you it’s AMAZING! And the elf putty primer makes my pores disappear! My NYX concealer works so good under my eyes that it makes me look like I actually got more than 4 hours of sleep 😂 NYX - Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation

Only foundation I use
I like to think this foundation makes me look like a true Amazonian goddess. In reality it probably just helps me look like I’ve had enough sleep and enough water, but if that’s the best I can do right now, I’ll take it! Tarte is great at being eco friendly and using safe ingredients. They use no parabens, sulfates, mineral oil or gluten, as well as no triclosan, which I had to look up. (Triclosan is antibacterial and antimicrobial, but known as a hormone disrupted, similar to parabens). The packaging is cute and earthy and you get a decent amount for the price of $39. A bottle usually last me about 6 months. This foundation comes in 40 shades, which is way cool and seems to have warmth and cool variations from lightest to darkest. The texture is thick but fluffy and doesn’t seem to lay as heavy as some high coverage foundations. It does work well without a primer, which I would credit to the fluffiness being good at filling in wrinkles and scars, of which I have both, but not looking cakey. When I’m working I will easily wear this 12 hours straight and have a blow dryer blowing hot air back at me half the time, and somehow all my make up seems to stay put. I’m guessing because of the clay ingredient, it’s also amazing at soaking up oil as you go. tarte - Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 #cheriecreator

My all time favorite makeup cosmetics I use every day especially in the summer time I love to go for a natural dewy bronze look. It’s the perfect look for summer and makes your skin looking fresh and natural for the beach, or going out, for lipstick I used wet n wild bare it all lipstick. It’s a dark nude color and my favorite when I go out.. I linked all the products that I use and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do 😊❤️ Since this look is so light and natural it doesn’t feel heavy on my face and that’s what I love most, it feels like I’m not wearing any makeup

Fav foundation for flawless skin!!
BEST AFFRODABLE FOUNDATION - L’oreal Foundation Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation This is a long wear foundation with breathable-skin technology. It provides a medium-to-full coverage that is buildable and lasts all day. This consistency of this foundation is somewhat lightweight! I really like this foundation. This has quickly become one of my favorites and my go-to everyday foundation. This foundation is super buildable and long-lasting. It isn’t’ too matte but it also doesn’t make your skin look oily. It gives you the perfect sheen and makes your skin look super healthy, hydrated, and GLOWY!! I would definitely recommend this product to others. This foundation is comparable to high-end foundations but a lot more affordable. It currently retails for $14.99 on Ulta.com

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
