My top 3 base makeup products & why!

Hello everyone (▰˘◡˘▰)

This week I wanted to talk about makeup!

Foundation/BB creams are, literally, the foundation of your makeup look, so needless to say they're pretty important. I've been through countless brands, formulas and colours before I could find ones that suited me!


When searching for foundation, I typically look for...
  • light/medium coverage (any heavier and my skin breaks out)
  • long-lasting and feel natural to my skin
  • Relatively affordable price
  • (not a deal breaker) but relatively cute packaging!
  • Foundations for oily skin types
My top 3 all together! qop aside, aren't they cute?~

DISCLAIMER: From my research online (sources: Q-depot.com and Peta) these companies should as of right now be cruelty free. I'll make sure to update this post if I find out otherwise (゚▽^*)



3.Peach perfect comfort matte foundation (Too Faced)

features:
  • Oil free
  • 14 hr wear
  • oil controlling
  • photo friendly
PROS: The coverage is very impressive! I've got lots of compliments when wearing this one, and I've found that like it says I look a lot less shiny throughout the day. The colour is, when blended, perfect for my skin tone and it smells amazing (like peaches and figs!)

CONS: I wouldn't recommend this as a daily foundation, more of a special occasion one; the reason being the formula is a bit heavy and I worry would cause break outs.


2. Babyface moisture BB cream (It's Skin)

features:
  • Clinical skin solution (won't cause breakouts/damage)
  • SPF 30 PA++
  • Moisturising
PROS: Babyface is only around £10 to buy and really does work wonders. the coverage is great for redder skin & it gives you a healthy glow. My skin never feels dried or heavy like some products can cause, and it's so adorable to look at ^^

CONS: The coverage of this cream is pretty sheer, so I wouldn't recommend it for skin with a lot of acne meaning it's not as universally great as i'd like to think. The range of shades is sadly minimal as well.


1. Precious Mineral BB cream (Etude house)

features:
  • SPF 30 PA++
  • Whitening
  • Anti-wrinkle
  • Anti-darkening
PROS: This. BB cream. it is perfect! I find that this one is easily buildable/blendable, and actually protects my skin from betting burnt (a total lifesaver on holiday). The coverage I would say is medium, It also smells fresh and clean ヽ(´▽`)ノ

CONS: The only con I can think of with this foundation is again the shade range. It would be awesome to see Korean makeup brands producing a more diverse range, but I guess since their main business is in Korea this may not happen as of yet ;(

So that was my top 3 coverage base products! I hope this proved useful to anyone looking for something that will keep their skin looking, and, more importantly, feeling gorgeous.


as always, have a lovely day~
