Shahnaz Loves Beauty

Drug store makeup is really better than ever, I constantly get asked what is a good foundation and people are surprised when I list the budget brands. Yes the high end foundations are also amazing but if you are looking for an every day one then one of these could work for you.

Its been a while since I used the Bourjois Healthy mix but I repurchased a week ago and I forgot why I loved it so much. It glides on beautifully leaving a healthy glow to my skin giving me the dewy finish I love so much. I love that my skin still looks like skin and not heavy especially if I apply with fingers but you can build up application if you use a foundation brush.

L’Oreal Lumi Magique is another winner it looks like I have the most amazing skin when I have this one it literally illuminates my skin because of its light reflecting technology. Great texture and super light on application, if you do struggle with oily skin on want your foundation to last a bit longer than use a powder where needed.

Max Factor Skin Luminizer is a great one for that no makeup makeup look as its really light in consistency. I normally wear this one of the weekend when I am going for a lighter no fuss coverage. It gives a bit of a glow to the skin especially after my skin care routine which is so key before any foundation application.

Last up the Rimmel True Match this is your ┬ámedium to fuller coverage foundation and due to its light perfecting ingredients I don’t have to wear a highlighter with this one as it gives me a natural glow. To get the fuller coverage take a brush like Sigma F80 glat Kabuki when applying foundation.

Whats your favourite drug store foundation?
