Makeup Forever HD Foundation

So I finally got my hands on the Makeup Forever HD Foundation. I follow celebrity makeup artists like Lisa Eldridge and its in her pro makeup kit and others have raved about it so of course I needed to have it! Makeup Forever is available in South Africa but not the HD Foundation yet. I ordered mine online in the UK as I just had to get some for me and my make up kit. Having as much foundation as possible is important to me as I do make up on so many skin types and skin tones. I am always looking for a foundation that will look amazing in front of the camera too especially when I am shooting beauty. It promises to cover imperfections while remaining invisible on screen and in real life. There are 28 shades which is also a big plus as a lot of brands don’t have a great selection for darker skin tones.

So this morning I thought I would try a healthy glowing look as I already have a tan. I moisturised and then applied the Estee Lauder Idealist Skintone illuminator (LOVE will blog about it too). Already my skin was glowing. I pumped some foundation onto the back of my hand and it definitely goes a long way I covered my whole face, normally I have to apply more so that is a big plus.  The foundation is a medium coverage,  I used N145 which is darker than I would normally use but I am tanned so always remember when buying foundation you need one for summer and one for winter. I love the coverage and it wasn’t too shiney for me so I didn’t have to apply any powder. It made me look really healthy so am so excited to try on a photoshoot. It also blended really well into my skin and I also felt like I wasn’t wearing anything heavy. So so far I am a fan. I then finished the look with some bronzer and mascara.

Will defenitely be using in my makeup video’s in the month of June. So keep on watching.

Hope you enjoyed my post.
