Flawless Foundation for Under $20 👍🏼

Welcome back to my page! Today I’m talking about one of my recent foundation discoveries! Drum roll please for COVERGIRL - Outlast Active Foundation
! This baby came into my life at a time when I was at my most active and wanted some coverage for when I was at the gym! Before I dive deep into my review, I want to give you all some background info! I have oily/combo skin with slightly enlarged pores! I am on the more light side of a light/medium skin tone complexion. My under tone is neutral. My current concern is dealing with black heads (which you see in my up and personal picture 😅). My expectations from a solid foundation is one that doesn’t make my skin even oiler than what it is, it stays in place for at least my work day, it spreads easily and evenly, and it gives me mid to buildable coverage! This Outlast Active foundation claims to be “sweat proof, transfer proof, and humidity proof for 24 hours and does not clog pores.” Currently, I see 18 shades available on Covergirls website. Covergirl is cruelty free 👏🏼. Each tube comes with 1 fl oz and can be found for as little as $6.00 on sites like Amazon or Walmart. I stayed in the caption it’s under $20 because the shade I use with is (840) retails for $15.00 at my local CVS. This is a reasonable price range for a drug store makeup brand! This foundation is not heavy at at all and it meant to be lightweight product for people who are used to an active lifestyle. You can go to a gym with a full face of makeup and half if not more will be gone by the time you’re done with the workout. That is why this foundation! The proof is in the pictures! The first picture is me at about 9 hour wear period! I did my makeup around 9:00 am, worked out at 1:30, and snapped the pictures at 6:15ish pm. It 100% delivers in the thinks I want because I don’t feel like it makes my skin more oily, I can build it up in coverage if I wanted to, and my pores are visible but not as much when I’m not wearing makeup. Obviously, I do not wear foundation for 24 hours long so I cannot say if that statement is true but 9 hour wear period is good enough for me! The main benefit and highlight is that if you’re into sports or other activities then this is the product for you! No more need to use high end foundation just to sweat it off or go bare face (again please rock whatever you want 👍🏼)! Since this product is cruelty free, I think it would be good for people with sensitive skin. My personal trick is to apply primer before the foundation and then set with powder and setting spray post foundation application for maximum duration! I also use a Beauty Blender sponge when applying my foundation to ensure I get it even and nice all around. From my pictures you can see that this foundation looks good with natural or artificial light! I even took a super close up so y’all can see how long lasting this foundation truly is! Let me know if y’all end up trying it out 😊! #CheriePartner

Notes: I’m fair skinned. Hazel eyes. Dyed blonde hair. And no makeup expert. I love this foundation. I’ve used every drugstore brand available and never found one that left me with the desired finish. This formula is lightweight. Easy to blend and build on for more coverage. Didn’t break out my sensitive skin. Lasted all day. Will be my go to foundation. SEPHORA COLLECTION - 10 HR Wear Perfection Foundation

#COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Hydrating Foundation[products]#[FiveStars] I have been EAGERLY waiting ALL day to post this review!!! I wanted to really get a good test on this foundation so 9 hours later.... 🥁 roll please!!! 🤗 ABOUT THE PRODUCTℹ️ COST: $16.99 @ ULTA Foundation with medium but build-able coverage. Contains Hyaluronic Acid 🌟 for a skin perfecting , natural finish that also helps keep your skin healthy, and hydrated 💦WHAT?!? Yes 😳 craziness! Also contains coconut 🥥 water 💧 to support even MORE hydration and skin softness. Always prep with clean 🧼 face and normal skin care routine. Prep with a primer and says to use a beauty blender. For ALL skin types!!!🤗 MY EXPERIENCE ❤️🤗 Ok friends! I am NOT a foundation wearing human. At least not in the regular. I save it for SPECIAL occasions because my skin does not like it otherwise. AKA angry 😡 breakouts and clogged pores even with primers. Let’s begin with why I am in love! Upon application I found the liquid to be quite loose, it doesn’t hold a pile shape long before spreading out. Using a beauty blender I applied it to my face. At first it seemed a little yellow from my skin but after everything was set it looked WAY more natural and crazy super close to my skin tone! Which is crazy considering how I picked it. ℹ️⚠️ Side Note 📝 I used Ulta’s virtual try on tool!!!! Had to test it multiple times to be certain and if you are not standing in bright natural light 💡 it will not be correct. But dang! I ordered this foundation in LIGHT 50W and it’s perfect for me. How my skin feels??? From the time I put it on to now, I don’t really feel the makeup on my face. I normally feel my skin screaming to be cleaned 🧼! But this is VERY easy to wear. I have dry skin so that says a lot. I don’t feel clogged or dry. And I did not notice any oxidation with this foundation, which is from the Hyaluronic Acid I am sure. I honestly still feel flawless even after cleaning house 🏡 bathing my kids! I can tell I am wearing foundation when I look in the mirror but I didn’t notice much of, or any caking as the day went on. And my skin feels soft like as if I was not wearing makeup at all which I really love! ❤️❤️❤️ Also I did not use ANY concealer in this look except for eyelids. I just lightly baked under my eyes and that was it. Super impressed with how well the coverage is! Specially on my under eye darkness. Definitely will buy this again! Easy on the budget and the skin! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ⚠️🤗Second pic is the 9 hr later result! ❤️

How to get flawless base makeup in summer!!
How to get flawless base makeup in summer!!
What you’ll need: a foundation brush, a primer that is light and easy to blend, a high-coverage foundation and an oil control setting powder My pursuit for the base makeup: as I have an oily-combo skin type, I would like my base makeup to be long lasting and not easily ruined by the oil and sweat that I will inevitable have on my face during the day. Besides, I would especially suffer from acne in the hot humid summer, so it would also be better if my acnes could get perfectly covered. What I’ve used and my thoughts:  ·smashbox - Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hour Foundation I love how this product provides full coverage and it could last a whole day, sometimes when I wear this foundation, as long as I moisturize well and set the foundation well, it still stays on place and give me an intact look after 9-10 hours. But the only problem with this foundation is that it tends to get dry quickly and it could be hard to blend. ·clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Correcting Cream Veil SPF 21 My go-to foundation when I pursue a natural and clean look. But these days it is not long-lasting enough and it could only provide light-to-medium coverage. So on important occasions, this alone is not enough. ·KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Lock-It Finishing Powder This is my holy grail setting powder, only that the cushion that comes with it is not good enough. So I’ve changed it with something else I bought from CVS. You could also just use your brush or sponge to apply this powder on your face. It just blurs out every single shine resulting from oil on one touch. And I always carry it with me in summer to save my from being too shiny… Steps to follow: 1. Moisturize well before you apply any foundation products. This is always a must for any base makeup to look good and last long. 2. Blend the primer and the foundation in the ratio of 1:1 on hand.  3. Use the brush to dip the mixture and apply them on your face. You could also opt for a beauty blender if you are in want of a more natural look 4. Use the setting powder to set your foundation carefully and thoroughly. And voila, here is a base makeup that provides high coverage and lasts long.

It works!

TLM Foundation - Color Changing Foundation I saw this on Instagram about a year ago, with all good reviews. Then I watched the Jeffree Star review and he hated it. I bought this for $20, and I was actually amazed at how well it works. It goes on white, and then it blends into your skin tone. I have fair skin tone. It’s medium coverage, but it lasts all day and looks great. It leaves my skin dewy and smooth. I really liked this foundation, and I’d definitely recommend trying it. Based on the reviews, I guess it depends from person to person on how well it works. But it worked for me.

COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation $10 🥥Why did I buy this product? This foundation kept popping up all over social media and I liked the fact that it was formulated with coconut milk and aloe extract. Also this product is formulated with out parabens, talc, etc that tend to clog your pores. 🥥What do I like about the product? This product has a dewy finish without looking greasy. Like it advertises, it looks like your actual skin with still giving a medium coverage. My freckles are visible but I can cover up scars with its buildable formula. 🥥What don’t I like about the product? The shade range could be more expansive. 🥥Who is this product for? This product is suitable for those with combo-dry skin as it does have a dewy finish. That being said if you have more oily skin, this product along with a good setting powder will work fine. I am in the shade fair/light which was a good match for me. ***Even though I wanted to, I did not edit my skin in the photo to show the true appearance of the foundation. I definitely recommend this foundations and am impressed at the quality for only $10💗

MAC Full Coverage Foundation Review!!
MAC Full Coverage Foundation Review!!
The MAC - Full Coverage Foundation is definitely not a super popular foundation. However I got this a couple of weeks ago and I did an all day wear test today. First impressions: While you can build this up, it is so easy to sheer out and it looks so natural if I use a beauty blender just to blend out where I need coverage. It is so skin like that I can use this just where I need it, it doesn’t look weird and patchy like some full coverage foundations when only applied in certain areas. I tried it with a brush which does pack on the product and it does look a bit cakey that way. DISCLAIMER: This does NOT work with the Milk Makeup Hydrogrip primer. It does not stick at all and when I used this I had to remove everything. I suggest using no primer at all, just a good moisturizer. Wear: This lasts a really long time on the skin. It lasts through sweat and humidity, but I have used this without setting powder which is fabulous-this foundation does not have to be set with powder- but it won’t last quite as well. I don’t experience any wearing off when I put on a mask. I wear NC15 because I am quite fair, but I do want to get a deeper color to use as a contour shade. Final thoughts: This is a great product! I would describe it as more of a “my face but flawless” look because it is so skin-like. Definitely not the Instagram glam vibe, but I prefer my skin to still look like skin. However, if you have dry skin consider not setting with powder. My skin has been incredibly dry these past few days and if I set with powder it does crack and make my skin quite flakey. This is definitely a new favorite foundation!
