A beauty junkie can never leave out base makeup especially when he/she is heading out of the house, even to run errands. For me, I have oily combination skin, very acne-prone as well, which makes it hard for me to find a foundation that suits me. Most of the foundations I tried in the market do not last on my skin but thankfully after years of experimenting, testing and trying, I managed to shortlist my top 5 favourites!
Price is never an issue for me because it’s all about finding the best foundation for my skin type. Interestingly, my five choices here range from the luxurious to the pocket-friendly ones.
For once, you can hold your complaints about Singapore always being one of the last few countries to launch any makeup product. Get ready to perfect your skin with an unbelievably gorgeous glow that lasts, pretty much the entire day, even in Singapore’s hot tropical climate.
Let’s take a while to register that the Urban Decay Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact Foundation is finally launched in Singapore… YAS, WE ARE THE FIRST COUNTRY TO LAUNCH THIS, and even the United States haven’t gotten a launch date yet!
With the BB Cushion craze going on for quite some time now, it’s high time European brands jump on the bandwagon and release their own versions too! I’ve been a BB Cushion user for about 2 years now with my favourite being the LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control and I’ve never been happier to own one since it’s so convenient and easy to use. However, if you’re a seasoned BB Cushion user, you’ll know that most cushions don’t provide enough coverage and you’ll still need a concealer to cover up those flaws.
BB Cushion users, you’ll be glad to know that the best-selling foundation range (also undoubtedly my favourite foundation since I started using makeup) – the Double Wear – from Estée Lauder, now carries a BB Cushion!
How do you wear your makeup to give off your sexiest vibe? Well, for me, a flawless base makeup and a hot red lipstick works magic. You know you want to look all polished and put together for a romantic date night.
Lucky me, I’ve been trying some of the bestsellers from the Revlon Colorstay™ and Ultra HD range and they work amazing! Love is on!
To start off, I have the Revlon Colorstay Compact Makeup & Concealer in Medium Beige. It’s essentially a foundation and concealer in one compact, how convenient! There are altogether 12 expertly-matched shades of foundation and concealer. It gives a demi-matte finish and is definitely buildable to full coverage.
Do you remember my holy grail foundation of all time? If you’re thinking of Estée Lauder, then you are on the right track! It’s the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup liquid foundation! If you think that it’s too messy and troublesome to bring along, you can now do so with Estée Lauder’s new compact – Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact!
With an impressive 8-hour wear, the Double Wear formula goes a long way for women on the go, especially working office ladies.
