Although I’m a big believer in the fact that you don’t have to spend a fortune on makeup to look good, I find you really get what you pay for when it comes to foundation. I’m a huge fan of drugstore blushers, bronzers, highlighters, eye shadows and mascara. When it comes to foundations I’ve yet to find one from the drugstore that I’ve loved as much as some of my higher end favourites. Regular readers of this blog will know that when it comes to foundations, I love a lighter finish on my skin. And the high end foundations that I love tend to have a feather light formula that just glides onto the skin. So if you’re also into your higher end foundations, here are two high end winter foundation favourites.
Nars Sheer Glow £31
I’m not sure why but it took me so long to try this foundation. But now I have it, I find myself using the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation all the time! Although you might think this would provide a ‘sheer glow’ finish, it actually has more of a medium coverage that leaves your skin looking flawless and glowing. With the added skincare benefits and the Nars Complexion Brightening Formula, this foundation leaves my skin feeling hydrated and looking more luminous. It’s perfect for giving me glowing skin at this time of year.
Giogrio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation £37
This is another foundation that took me forever for try. But now I have it’s a firm favourite in my makeup collection! The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is just lovely. Yes it’s expensive but it’s worth it. With oil-free hydrating ingredients and micro-fil technology, the lightweight and silky texture just glides on effortlessly for a flawless all day coverage. It’s not too matte, or too dewy – it just looks like your skin but a lot better! Plus it has one of those magic pumps where it manages to dispense the perfect amount of foundation every time.
