The Holy Grail of Foundations

How many of us have struggled with finding the right foundation?! I know I have! It was either I used a brand that matched my skin tone, but was not a match for my skin type or vice versa. I am warm complexioned and have combination skin which means I have both dry and oily areas, so you can imagine how tough it’s been for your girl, haha. As most of us have, I started off with a drugstore foundation. For years I was not happy with the quality these brands had to offer, plus they were cakey or not long lasting.

I finalllly mustered up the courage to spend some real money on a high end brand, just a couple of years ago. But let me tell you, the quest to find the perfect foundation, left this girl feeling overwhelmed by options. There are so many different formulas, textures and ingredients out there. Knowing which one suits you is TOUGH. But after some trial and error, I’m pretty sure I have found the one!!!! To have and to hold, from this day forward…sort of thing. HA!

Drum roll please….

Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation

Illuminating, weightless foundation blurs imperfections while adding a dewy glow. The formula is infused with Vitamin E oil so you are sure to feel hydrated and conditioned.  This is a full coverage foundation but it is sheer. So if you do suffer from acne or scarring this may not be full enough coverage. I will say though, I do have sun spots and get the occasional break out and this is more than enough coverage for that. This product will leave you with healthy and radiant looking skin. I prefer to apply the product with a blending brush vs a beauty blender as it’s already so lightweight. What I love about it, is the formula takes less than a minute to bond with my skin! Plus, a little can go a long way. It is a buildable formula that blends well with concealers, bronzers, blushes etc. You will feel like your skin is able to freely breath (which was not the case for me with other foundations). In fact, I work out mid day with this foundation on and my face looks just as fresh as it did before my work out, can you say #qualitymakeup !?

I am truly amazed by this product and will repurchase time and time again. I use the product 7x a week yet the bottle lasts for about 4-6 months!! So, if you’re ready to serve those radiant, fresh, and healthy looks, this foundation is for you!! What are you waiting for? Head to your nearest Sephora and try it out for yourself!

P.S. If you are wanted to take this look to yet another level, I would suggest using it’s partner: Becca Backlight Priming Filter Face Primer. It helps create a smooth canvas and acts as an extra filter to flawless and glowing skin! Xo
