My Top 5 Foundations

Hey guys,

I thought I would do a little post of my top 5 foundations.
These are foundations I use daily or religiously for my nice days of foundations.



1) Kat Von D Lock is foundation in light 44 cool £27



This foundation is one of my goes to.
This foundation is high coverage.
I adore this shade and the finish.
If I have a really glam day and this is one I instantly grab.
It blends beautifully and it is not that expensive.

2) Urban Decay Naked Skin Shade 2.0 £28.50


This is such a light foundation. 
I literally never feel it on my skin.
It makes my skin feel amazing.
Not only that it is so natural and buildable if I'm having a bad skin day this is what I gravitate towards to because of its finish.
Bit more expensive than my Kat Von D but totally worth it.

3) Urban Decay all nighter in shade 1.5 £29


This foundation is controversial.
I love it but others hate it.
These shades come up lighter than the naked skin as they slightly oxidise.
I love this for nights out it is so high coverage. 
I use this on a beauty blender and it blends phenomenally.
As you can see I've used a bit thats how much I love it.

4) Milani 2 in 1 conceal and perfect in shade 00 light natural £13


Yet again another high coverage foundation this time at drugstore price.
This foundation I have to have the lightest shade.
I love this.
I can literally wear it all the time.
This is a coveted foundation.
There is so many shades in this range.
It is cheaper than my other ones too.



 5) Soap and Glory one heck of a blot foundation shade 1£10


This is one of my faves ever.
It is only £10.
It is liquid to powder.
I have really oily skin and my skin doesn't eat through this one.
The shade range is poor but I love it.
I absolutely love the soap and glory one heck of a blot range.




There you go guys my top 5 foundations.
What are your fave foundations???
I would love to try more.
