I thought today would be a great time to break up all this fall content with some fun with makeup. Over the years, I’ve tried countless foundations and most of my reviews are here on my blog. This year, I’ve settled into a minimal makeup routine that I don’t see changing any time soon. Today, I am sharing my current favorite foundations. It’s hard to believe I’ve actually narrowed down my foundations to two! A couple years ago, I started a series of Foundation Friday posts where I reviewed a new foundation each week. It resulted in a lot of foundation bottles accumulating in my makeup drawer. In the end, these two emerged as favorites!
When I got down to my favorite products, I only need two foundations. One, for my everyday skin tone and, two, for when I wear self tan. I have my favorite shade of the PUR 4-in-1 Love Your Selfie. You can find my full review here. My shade is LG4. A little goes a long way with this foundation! I use a thick buffing brush to apply it, and it goes on very smoothly
For days I am wearing self tan, I use the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation in shade 22G Light Golden. This was an old fave before I rediscovered it earlier this year. This is the perfect shade for when I’m wearing self tan, but I also love combining it with the PUR foundation. Since the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation is more liquid than cream, like the PUR foundation, they combine really well. The shade that I create by mixing them is perfect when my tan is fading as well.
