Current Foundation Favorites

I am always on the hunt for a foundation that is going to give me flawless skin. Since I suffer from Rosacea, I look for a foundation that is going to give me good coverage while not looking dry and cakey. I love a luminous, dewy finish and tend not to gravitate towards matte foundations. You’re face can never have too much glow. Here’s a list of my current favorite foundations.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+Illumination™ Cream with SPF 50+

Although this is technically a CC cream, this foundation has become a staple in my collection. I love to wear this in the spring and summer. It gives your skin a stunning, natural luminosity while providing medium coverage. “Your Skin But Better” truly describes this product. It doesn’t look like you’re wearing foundation because it just melts into your skin and blends out beautifully.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

This has been my holy grail foundation for a long time. I have realized that my ideal foundation is lightweight, gives me a natural glow and medium to full coverage. That basically describes Nars Sheer Glow. The finish is not as luminous as the It CC cream but it’s luminous in a more subtle way. The coverage is medium to full and is perfect for covering my Rosacea without looking cakey, thick and dry.

Hourglass Vanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

Newer to my collection, this little stick has quickly made it into my holy grail foundations. At first I was hesitant to try a stick foundation but the reviews were incredible so I had to give it a go. The finish isn’t matte but it isn’t dewy. It is a perfect balance of the two and the finish gives you an airbrushed look.
