Top 3 Foundations

As summer slowly comes to an end, so do my days of wearing little-to-no makeup. I was going through my makeup collection testing out different products that I have. More specifically, the foundations. While I do adore drugstore products, I own mostly foundations from Sephora. The drugstore ones that I do own are either too light or too dark. I realized it's because I'm rubbish at picking out the right shade, so I always like to have a professional do it for me haha! 

These are some of the foundations that I wear most often and are my favorites :) 

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream - I'll wear a BB cream on days when I don't want to wear an actual foundation. It doesn't cover every little spot on your face so if you're looking for something full coverage, this probably isn't for you. It's more for evening out your skin tone in an effortless way. This product is great for dry skin because it's moisturizing and doesn't settle into any patches. This is also what I would wear to school on an everyday basis. 

Clinique Superbalanced Makeup - Back in my sophomore year of high school I was in desperate need of a foundation that wouldn't make my acne-covered face worse than it was. I was directed towards a Clinique foundation. It goes on smooth and is easy to blend. This foundation can be a bit oily, so keep that in mind. Other than that I don't have any negative things to say about this product. It's also not as expensive as other brands at Sephora so that's a plus. 

Cover FX Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation - This is more of a full coverage foundation. It has the words "oil free" in the name, but it's quite the opposite. Again, this might lean towards people who have drier skin. It has a buildable coverage but doesn't look cakey on the face. I'll usually use this for special occasions. 

What foundations do you love? I'm looking for a new one before school starts!
