My favorite foundation

Today I’m going to talk about something women struggle with on the daily—finding the right foundation. There are a lot of options out there. Having a nice base (clear, blemish free skin) will go a long way to make you look your best.

So, what foundations do I suggest? Here are some brands that I love:


1. Maybelline Matte and Poreless Foundation $7.99 (Shop Now)

This is a great, basic foundation that can sit comfortably in anyone’s makeup collection. It even has an unbeatable price. It is a great medium coverage foundation. It is buildable for a great full coverage look. It is on trend with its matte finish. It looks great on the skin. The shade options are not varied but it is still a great drugstore foundation.

2. L’oreal True Match Foundation $10.99 (Shop Now)

This is a great, staple drugstore foundation. There is a wide range of different colors. If you are a woman of color this foundation might be for you because you will be able to find the right shade match. It is a full coverage foundation. It is inexpensive. I would buy this foundation anytime, just to have in my makeup collection. If I need something in a fix that I know will work great, I use L’Oreal True Match foundation.

3. Revlon Colorstay Foundation $12.99 (Shop Now)

Revlon Colorstay foundation is another good foundation. It is full coverage. It is long-lasting. It has a great shade range like the L’oreal True Match foundation. It is the foundation to use on long, work days.

4. L’oreal Infallible Matte Foundation $12.99 (Shop Now)

This foundation is another great drugstore find. It is a full coverage foundation. It leaves you with a matte finish—there is no dewy shine on your skin. Another good selling point? There are tons of different foundation colors to choose from. If you want a totally matte look, then this may be the foundation for you.

5. Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation $42.00 (Shop Now)

This foundation is amazing. It is from a great, high-end brand that I swear by–Estée Lauder. It is a full coverage foundation that is heavy duty.  It can hide any blemish, redness or under eye circle. There is also a wide selection of shade ranges to choose from. I suggest going to an Estée Lauder counter to buy it because a sales associate will be able to help you to find the right color match.

6. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation $64.00 (Shop Now)

This is an amazing high-end foundation. It is the best foundation for a dewy, glowing look. If you buy this you should use it sparingly.  If you put too much on, your skin can look oily and cakey.


There are a lot of different foundations to try out.  Do not be discouraged if you do not find the right one for you right away.  Keep trying.  Eventually, your persistence will pay off.

Pro tip: if you have great skin you should use foundation sparingly.  Instead, try going full glam on special occasions. It is a good idea to let your skin “just be” once-in-a-while.

Well, that is it for now.

I will see you next week!

With infinite love,
