makeup basics picking a foundation top 10 drugstore foundation

To continue my makeup basics series, I thought that after talking about eyeshadows for a bit, we could switch to foundation.

However, selecting the right one can be a minefield. That is why in today’s video, I am talking you through my tips for picking a foundation, including my top 10 drugstore foundations.

Bourjois Healthy Mix BB Cream

After my all time favorite BB cream was discontinued by The Body Shop, some people recommended I look into the newly released Bourjois Healthy Mix BB Cream. It took ages before I could find it in store last winter and since BB cream is a summer makeup product for me I didn’t get around to using it until this month. Will this be a good replacement for the BB cream I loved so much? More importantly yet: will it be a good, lightweight summer time base that can withstand a bit of sweat and heat?

Now that it’s summer I like switching up my base to something more lightweight and airy.

I love bb creams, but tinted moisturizers are quite new to me. So I was stoked to try this out. Here are my final thoughts.

The foundation I used in the month of May was this Dream Cushion foundation by Maybelline that I have had for nearly 2 years and wore but never reviewed. I decided to make a point of trying to use it up this month as it was on the older side and I am not sure how hygienic this products gets over time as the packaging doesn’t keep the products airtight per se. That is why today I am finally reviewing the Maybelline Dream Cushion foundation for you.

MAC Waterweight foundation

It’s foundation time again! I have been trying so many different foundations lately and it had been a while since I tried anything by MAC. I used to own the infamous Face & Body foundation and I wanted to repurchase that. But that foundation doesn’t have a great shade match for me and that is why the MUA recommended I try the Waterweight foundation. Texture wise this should be similar to F&B, yet this does come in the classic NC & NW shade range that MAC is known for. How am I getting on with this foundation?

The Ordinary Light Coverage Serum Foundation 1.1 N Fair Neutral review swatch

The Ordinary is not only an affordable skincare brand, they also do some other products. One of those products is a range of 2 different foundations: the coverage and serum foundations. The coverage foundation promises to be more full coverage, but since I prefer a light to medium coverage foundation I decided to try the serum foundation.
