Makeup Wars: Favorite Foundations

It is time for another Makeup War! This time the Makeup Wars bloggers are sharing their favorite foundations! 

My Skin:
Just for reference, lets talk about my skin! I always like to know a product reviewer's skintone and skin type. I am extremely fair and have sensitive skin. Many makeup lines (especially drugstore) do not have shades light enough for me. Often, in the lines that do go light enough, I am the very lightest shade. My tone is neutral-cool, sometimes a cool tone is the best match and sometimes neutral works better. It just depends. I admit, it is hard to match skintone! Often I think something matches, and then I take it home, and realize it doesn't. There is so much trial and error here. I find that the true test is looking at your foundation in natural light and checking it against your neck and jawline. My go-to blogger for foundation recommendations? The fabuous Phyrra! I find that I often wear the same shade as her or close to the same shade.
Foundation is an essential part of my Makeup Routine. I will fully admit that for everyday, I often opt for just a light dusting of my favorite powder foundation: MAC's Studio Fix in NC 15. However, when I have more time, or just really want to perfect my skin, I use a liquid foundation or a heavier-coverage BB Cream. My go-to BB Cream these days? Clinique's Age Defense BB Cream in Shade #01. My current favorite liquid foundation? Urban Decay's Naked Skin in Shade # 0.5. It looks so natural, the color match is fabulous, and it just makes my skin look great! In addition to these listed above, there are many other foundations that I love! Here are all of the ones that I am currently loving and always reaching for! What I pick to wear on a particular day just depends on the type of finish and coverage I am looking for. :) 

So, here are my current favorite go-to and most-reached-for foundations (in no particular order):
Do you have super-duper fair skin like me? What foundations do you like? I would love more recommendations! What foundations are "missing" from my collection?

LMdB does make an excellent foundation!

Chantel said...

Nice foundation picks. I haven't tried any of these yet.

I want to come and play at your house. My skintone is so similar so I bet most of your picks would work for me. I have the Le Metier but I always felt they sold me the wrong shade.

I do love UD Naked. I should have included it! I would be interested to see how the PC one is!

Prime Beauty said...

I haven't tried any of these! The Urban Decay Naked Skin has been on my list for a while though and I don't have a go-to for light coverage, so it sounds like I'll have to give it a try soon!

Retrodiva said...

That Neutrogena Healthy Skin is a great makeup! So glad to see it make someone's list!

Jessika Barber said...

I need to try the Clinique!

Laura MyNewestAddiction said...

Love that we both picked Neutrogena Healthy Skin! :D

Thank you! Thank You! I always like to know skin type and complexion because I am very pale like you, actually wear the same shades. I'll check out Phyrra too per your post.
