Today we’re talking full coverage foundation. If you suffer from acne, extreme redness, or any sort of hyper pigmentation, you’ll love these! At Daniellestyle we’re constantly trying new products and from the moment these products hit our faces, we just knew.
First up is the YSL All Hours Foundation! With claims of 24 hour wear, we were intrigued, although no one should wear foundation for 24 hours, sometimes we have long days so if it can last 16 hours, thats fantastic! The second this foundation touched our skin we knew it was perfection. High pigmentation, super full coverage, blendable, lightweight, and it doesn’t oxidize (get darker after it dries down) or look cakey. Our favorite part? It has a skin-like finish, not too matte, but not too dewy. With that said, if you have super oily skin you will benefit from using a mattifying primer prior to applying your foundation. We would say it is great for most skin types, however you may not love it if your skin is dry. This lovely foundation comes in 36 colors ranging from super fair skin to deep skin tones. If Leigh’s lily white complexion can find a match, we’re sure you can! ;)
Next up is the MAC Studio Fix Fluid. Talk about high coverage! This bad boy packs a punch as well. It is very long wearing and VERY matte and controls oil as it wears. If you’re oily, you’ll love this guy, if you’re dry, you probably won’t be a fan. I will say a little goes a long way and you have to be careful to not over-use as it WILL cake up if you do. Other than that, this foundation is a dream in a bottle! Coming in 60 shades, you can count on finding a shade that matches your skin tone. The great thing about MAC is they take your undertone (cool or warm) into account as well, which really helps to get that PERFECT color match. This has been a long time favorite for full coverage skin.
Finally we have Maybelline Fit Me - Matte and Poreless. We thought we would include this one for those of you who may have a teen girl at home struggling with acne. Surprisingly, this foundation is one of the best on the market, competing with luxury brands as well. High coverage, long wearing, lightweight, and affordable. We never thought we’d say it, but Maybelline has really stepped up their game! With 40 shades ranging from very fair to deep you are sure to find one that fits you…..see what I did there? ;)
