My Foundation Round Up

Hi everyone,
Hope you've all had a great week and have been spoiling your mum's today!
I had a lovely day yesterday with my mum and nan at Southend Casino and they loved their cards and presents this morning
 Today I'm talking foundations!
I'm a foundation hoarder, I currently have four sitting on my dressing table that I alternate between.
So I'm going to give you an insight to my foundations and what I think of them.

I love foundation and believe that if you invest in a good foundation then your make up will look amazing.
Now at present I currently don't own any high street brand foundations as I am trying to invest in my make up collection.

First up is my NARS sheer matte glow.

Now this foundation is actually quite dark, so this only comes out when I've got a bit of a tan or have been using my fake tan.
I love the matte quality of this foundation and find that it stays on for the majority day. I also find that with this foundation I don't have to put bronzer over the top to add a pop of colour and can just contour and highlight the areas.

Next up is my MAC Studio Fix Fluid.
I generally use this on a day to day basis (however I'm currently scraping the sides as there is not much left), I find this has perfect coverage and lasts through out the day when I'm at work. If you are looking for a foundation to get you through the day then I would recommend this.

Now I love this foundation. I got colour matched at the Smashbox counter in my local Boots and the girl recommend using the studio skin as I told her I wanted coverage that would last throughout a busy work day.
This gets used for daily wear, when I often have meetings at work or I'm going out after work. This way I know my foundation will last and I can just top up my other make up if I'm in a rush.
If you haven't tried a Smashbox foundation I would highly recommend the Studio Skin, it gives really good coverage as well as having SPF!

Last but not least is my holy grail of foundations.
Estee Lauder Double Wear!
Before buying this foundation I went to my local House of Fraser and got colour matched, I was also then given a 10 day tester to try before deciding if I wanted to purchase the full bottle.
I was sold literally the second I put the product on my face!
This foundation is heaven, yes it is pricey at nearly £30 but it is worth every penny.
It stays on all day, makes you look flawless as well as being a joy to apply with either a sponge or stippling brush.
I use this for special occasions or when I fancy putting a little bit more effort in with my make up.
If you are wanting to invest in a high brand foundation that is totally amazing then run out and buy this now!!
I always get compliments about my make up when I wear this foundation, so it was definitely worth the investment.

And those are my current foundations!
What foundations do you love?
Will you be trying any of the above foundations?
Let me know in the comments.

Until Next Time...
