3 Favorite Foundations

3 Favorite Foundations

Foundation is the most important step in makeup application for me because it creates the blank canvas on which all other makeup products are applied. If I can get my foundation right, and preferably perfect, then I am all set. It has been a long journey to finding the right foundation color with the right amount of coverage and finish for my type of skin. I have to admit I am still on that journey with the ever evolving and exciting world of beauty and new technology.

At the moment, these are my 3 favorite foundations –

Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting FoundationTom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation

I love the traceless foundation because it is a lightweight formula, medium coverage and a dewy finish, which is great for natural looking makeup. I have combination skin so I do use a setting powder especially on my T zone. Sometimes I don’t set the rest of my face for an even glowier look. I wear the shade Tawny 07 mixed with Caramel 8 and it just melts into my skin and makes it look very vibrant and healthy.

My shade: Tawny 07 + Caramel 8


  •  A balanced complexion that glows with vitality and radiance
  • Extremely lightweight and luminous, without being shiny
  • easy to build up or sheer down
  • SPF 15 protects skin from sun damage.

MAC Prolongwear FoundationMAC Pro Longwear Foundation

This is my go to long wearing foundation for days that I need flawless makeup. It has medium coverage with satin finish. Honestly I mix it with the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation, Tawny 7 and I feel like the combo makes the perfect foundation for me. I don’t feel like I need to set it with a setting powder but I do on the T-zone anyway because I want the make up to stay put throughout my day or night.

My Shade: NC44


  • Lightweight
  • Satin Finish
  • Buildable coverage
  • Does not move on the skin or transfer easily

Luminous Silk Foundation Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This luminous foundation is very fluid and almost weightless with dewy finish and a flawless lit-from-within glow. It is a buildable with medium coverage foundation that improves skin texture and blurs minor imperfections. I wear it on days that I don’t really want to wear a lot of make up and it just gives me a nice glow. My skin looks like I have no foundation on but with a really nice glow.

My shade: 8


  • Improves skin texture
  • Blurs minor imperfections
  • Oil free yet still hydrating
  • Buildable coverage
  • Available in many shades

What are some of your favorite foundations?

      Hi Zhane, Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless and L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundations should give you good coverage wit a matte finish. If you have oily skin be sure to set your foundation with a setting powder. I hope this helps.
