So I will start with my favourite foundation: L'Oreal lumi magique foundation in rose pearl.
This foundation is basically perfect! It gives a very 'lit from within' look as it a dewy look and is very buildable meaning you can start from light coverage and go to full coverage. It gives a look of radiance! This shade is the palest and it actually is very pale unlike other foundations, and although it looks very :dark before you blend it in, trust me it's not. This retails around £10.99 but is sometimes on offer and the minimum £7.99. Although if you do not buy it in the sale, it is totally worth the money anyway and you get 30ml of product and a dispenser. Try it, it's amazing!
So, my second favourite foundation would have to be: maxfactor's colour adapt foundation in 40 cream ivory.
I love this foundation because it's very matte and can stay in place for a very long time with great coverage. It's very matte so is great for oily skin, but probably wouldn't be good for someone with dry skin. I find it is best to use a beauty blender or sponge when using this as it gives a more even coverage as when you use a brush, it can look a bit streaky and doesn't blend into the skin well. This is amazing and definitely worth the buy!
So as everyone knows, illamasqua is great at making foundations and this one definitely proves this: illamasqua light liquid foundation in 133. This is a great light coverage foundation, although I find I do have to mix it with moisturiser as otherwise it can dry out while your blending it into your skin. It is great for when you want to look natural and if your not allowed make up at school, this one is perfect. It makes your skin look flawless without looking cakey or heavy and feels weightless on the skin. However if you do use a moisturiser, try avoiding ones that leave a greasy film and this really doesn't look great. It's around £27 but a little goes a long way and makes your makeup collection even better.
Finally , I have: 17's miracle matte foundation in the lightest shade.
When I first bought this I thought the shade was way too dark but then it blended in really well. It has 16 hour shine control and is oil free, best thing is, it's got SPF 15 so is great for those summer days. It's a very full coverage and truly makes your skin flawless, it's relatively cheap as it is drugstore and it is a brand you can trust. Also, as you can tell by the name it's matte and only requires a small amount of powder to make sure it's there all day long. This is the best cheapest foundation, I have ever used, so go ahead and try it!
