Back with another makeup oriented post- why? Because its wedding season and I KNOW we’re all trying to nail our makeup. When it comes to makeup, my biggest problem is foundation. Everything seems to flake or fade throughout the day. Based on one of my recent posts, you know I like to save where I can when it comes to makeup. Let’s dive into my 4 favorite foundations that deliver and LAST.

The Brunette Blend- Four Affordable + Lasting Foundations for Everyone-Makeup

If the foundation has SPF, THROW IT IN MAH CART.

it Cosmetics CC+ Cream
With SPF 50 in this bad boy, there isn’t a question. While its a little more pricy than what you’ll find at the drugstore, its worth every penny. It provides full coverage along with anti-aging benefits. This CC cream is a staple in a makeup bag. You can use it as a primer or wear it on its own. (I love using it solo, it gives a dewy, fresh look). You can also snag the travel size.

L’Oreal Infallible Full Cover Foundation
For those looking for FULL coverage at a good price, here it is. This truly does provide full coverage and lasts through the day. While its lightweight, it can feel thicker compared to a CC cream, but the coverage is top notch. A little goes a long way, so the tube won’t desert you too quickly!

L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
This stuff is really cool. Its a beauty balm that smoothes imperfections, brightens and can serve as a great primer. The best part about this cream is that it adjusts. Meaning that when you squeeze it out of the tube, its white and will adjust to your skin tone. I went a shade darker so when it develops it gives me a little more of a glow for the summer months. This is another one that can be used as a primer or by itself for a light weight wear.

No.7 Stay Perfect Foundation The best $15 foundation out there in my opinion. Not only is it way affordable, but creates an amazing, clear look with a makeup sponge that is damp (with water or a few drops of facial oil). BONUS. It has SPF 15 for some added protection. Its lightweight and doesn’t get cake-y.
