Top 3 Favorite Foundations

Cover FX: Natural Finish Foundation

I had to start with the best one first. Calling all my full coverage gals... this foundation is thick! This baby will literally cover everything. When I am having breakouts or any sort of skin issue, this is the one I go for. It leaves a natural finish and makes your skin feel smooth as butter. All I have to say is Hallejuiah!! 


Makeup Forever: Ultra HD Foundation

This little nugget is a medium coverage with a natural finish, leaving your skin looking like skin. I have pretty normal to dry skin but have heard a lot of people with all different skin types love it. I set this with the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and my skin l-o-v-e-s it. This is the one I gravitate toward in the hotter months, where I'm wearing less makeup and going for a more "natural" look.


Smashbox: Studio Skin Foundation

This one is more of a medium coverage, but definitely buildable. It leaves your skin with a matte finish and feels extremely light. This is probably my most used for teaching and it has never let me down. Even after 8 hours of talking, grading, and managing third graders, my skin still looks as good as when I first put on my makeup. I pair it with the Photo Finish Primer and it works like a charm.
