1.) Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup

My Top 5 Foundation Favorites

-Benefits

  • Oil Free
  • Oil Control
  • Lightweight
  • Full Coverage
  • Long Wearing
  • Matte Finish

This is my number one absolute FAVORITE foundation of all time!!! I discovered this beauty when I was a Clinique Consultant and have been using it ever since. Since I have always dreamed of a full coverage foundation that didn’t feel heavy on my skin, I’m so happy this foundation found me.  I have acne scarring and this makeup covers ever imperfection and feels super light weight!!! It feels like I’m not wearing any makeup. The best part? This foundation is long wearing. It stays on all day! This foundation is for a combination oily-oily skin type.

2.) Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h Wear and Comfort SPF 15

-Benefits

  • Moderate to Full Coverage
  • SPF 15
  • Oil Free
  • Matte Finish
  • Full range of shades

Coming in at number two is the Lancome 24 hr wear Teint Idole. I love the way this foundation feels. It is still a matte finish but the SPF makes it feel slightly more hydrating than a lot of other Matte foundations. I love using this foundation on my clients because there is a full range of colors and shades. It is very easy to match a client in and has a great finish for photographs. I also love how this foundation can be a moderate coverage or a full coverage. Very versatile. This is also for a combination oily-oily skin type.

Pro tip: Use Lancome’s La Base Pro perfecting liquid primer before applying your foundation for a flawless long lasting wear.

3.)Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte Plus Poreless Foundation Makeup, Natural Ivory, 1 Fluid Ounce

-Benefits

  • Pore Minimizing
  • Matte Finish
  • Oil Free
  • Lightweight

I am all for a foundation that has all these benefits and is super affordable. Sign. Me. Up. This is a great foundation for normal to oily skin types. Great coverage as well as lightweight. Allergy tested. LOVE IT!

Pro tip: I highly recommend using the Fit Me concealer as well. Ah-mazing coverage concealer!

4.) Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation

-Benefits

  • Gel Whipped (in normal terms it means it gives a velvet-soft complexion)
  • Hydrating
  • Soft Matte Finish

This foundation gives you the best of both worlds. For those of you who have a combination skin and can’t use a hydrating foundation but you need something a little more hydrating than a matte, this one is for you. It gives you the benefit of a matte foundation with added hydration to keep your skin looking soft and refreshed. I recommend applying this foundation with your fingers or a beauty blender as it is a whipped foundation. Get ready for flawless skin!

Alright, I’m usually not a powder foundation kind of girl. But ladies, this powder is a full coverage shine absorbing, lightweight foundation! I’m hooked on this stuff. You can wear it as a finishing powder or a foundation! I love it. You can’t go wrong.
