My Top 5 Favourite Foundations

fav foundations

Hi Everyone, 🙂

I recently did a post on my favourite concealers. Here’s a post on my favourite foundations. Hope you like it and I would absoluutely love if you leave the names of your favourite foundations in comments below. 🙂

I am a huge believer in the fact that the base makeup can make or break the makeup. So if there is one makeup item that you should really put your money in, it is the foundation. You get the flawless base and then you can really play with the rest of your makeup. 🙂

I love to try new foundations from various brands. These are the most recent ones that I am absolutely enjoying using. 🙂

MAC Face and Body Foundation : I don’t even know how many times I have repurchased this foundation. It is water based foundation, super lightweight and almost looks like your skin. If there is a summer holiday that I am going for, I would not take any other foundation for me. The best thing is that it starts sheer and then you can build it up. So even if you get tanned, it would still work for you because of its sheerness.

Guerlain Parure Gold : If I would trust one foundation that would give me the most flawless look for photographs,this is the one I’d pick. It is pretty much a full coverage foundation. Totally recommend it for brides to be.

Gucci Lustrous Glow Foundation : If you like your foundations to be dewy and you like that model-like sort of creamy glow to your skin, nothing beats this foundation. Looks very natural on skin. I think Gucci messed up a bit with its lip products, rest I have been heads over heels in love with their makeup products.

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation : This is not the best foundation for hot-humid days but it gives the most beautiful glow to the skin. So these days I mostly mix it with other foundations to get that luminosity that this foundation imparts. It gives a very healthy look to the skin. This is going to be my favourite winter foundation.

Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation : If there is one brand that I would totally trust with their makeup, it would be Burberry. Flawless is the word.  Lightweight everyday perfection.

Two more foundations that I would super highly recommend are NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and Chanel Viatlumiere Aqua. I’d close my eyes and buy them any day. In fact, I have repurchased Chanel foundation twice already. 😀

And Here’s I have mixed Gucci’s and Burberry’s Foundation for today’s makeup look. 🙂 On lips is Burberry Lip Pencil in Brick Red  and The Balm Matte Liquid Lipstick in Devoted. Contouring using The Balm Bahama Mama. Blush : YSL Blush (review coming up soon) :), Highlighter : The Balm Mary Lou-manizer Eyebrows:  Gucci Brow Pencil . Eyeliner : Tom Ford Liquid Liner. Mascara : Loreal Million Lashes

  1. I know the post is about foundations but your lips are stealing the limelight here! You look so sensuous and beautiful. :-*

    I don’t really own one. My sister own a kryolan base palette and she mixes two shades to match my skin and that’s it! I like the coverage it gives and its staying power too. I would love to try MAC foundation soon.

    1. haha!! thank you. :-*

      kryolan does brilliant makeup. Yes try the mac face and body, you’d love how lightweight it feels and effortless it looks! 🙂

  2. I have not used any other foundation in your list except MAC Face and Body Foundation. I think I’ll hold it tightly even in my death bed :D. I got some useful tips for my future purchases. BTW I think your makeup prowess can give professionals a run for their money 🙂

  5. Rati di, that iridescent glow! 🙂 Although I don’t use a foundation, I am a devotee of YSL Touche Eclat. Please post an updated hair care routine, can’t wait to rob your hair care arsenal 😛

  6. OMG… YOU LOOK LIKE A PAINTING… WORSHIP WORSHIP… please do a video on this makeup please please its been so long right… I am currently using Clinique anti blemish foundation I am quite Liking it. I would like to try NARS sheer glow foundation and YSL foundation…

  7. Every one of those foundations you have mentioned seems worth buying.. Basically you have sold all those to us :)..each description is so well put that it’s tempting to own all. I don’t have any of these but MAC seems to be the one I would go for. Availability and packaging. Travel worthy too I think.

    1. Thank you so much aruna! 🙂 With mac face and body you just have to be careful that you close it tight while travelling because it’s a squeeze bottle… the old world kinds.:D It might spill if not careful. You travel so much, give others a try too. :))

  8. This post is bang on time for me. I love the description, it’s so precise and to the point. Just the kind of review I was looking for. Hope you do one on compact powders too 🙂 <3

  9. OMG stunning!! My favourite is MAC studio fix fluid as MAC MUA says this is the best bet for my combination skin. Apart from this I love Lakme Absolute mousse foundation and Maybelline dream liquid foundation 🙂
