If you are looking for a new foundation, I got you covered. I decided to start a foundation series over on my Insta page because I realised I have a few foundations and its only best to share which ones work well and have enough shades for dark skin tones! So the challenge I set myself is this, every month (I made a rota guys smh), I stick to using 1 foundation and report back to you guys. I am loving the challenge so far because I am enjoying re discovering some foundations I had in my collection! Doing this has also shown me how far I have come in selecting better foundation shades & undertones for my skin tone. I am also learning how to work with the shades that aren’t quite a good match but not bad enough to sell or throw away
Anyway, let’s get into it!
For my birthday month, I went with my absolute favourite foundation, the NARS All Day Weightless Luminous Foundation. I have the shade Benares.
Absolutely beautiful full coverage foundation with a luminous finish. This has a high conc of pigment so I found using a 1 and half pump plus a liquid illuminator (my recommendations will be on insta soon) was enough for a full face. NARS makes sure you also use less product as one full pump comes out with the tiniest amount compared to other foundations.
The NARS All Day Weightless Luminous Foundation is extremely lightweight and blends seamlessly into the skin. This foundation can easily look cakey if you use more than 2 pumps (I found this out the hard way). I also feel like it blends better with a buffing brush or a stippling brush.
I’m a huge fan of dewy/luminous finishes and this one is so beautiful not glittery at all
My absolute favourite foundation and I highly recommend. I have normal to combo oily skin types and this works well with my skin. I double prime in my tzone area
Available in 33 shades
