Hello beauties, I’m sure we all know that finding a foundation that bodes well with our skin type is difficult at best, I have dry skin and have struggled in the past with foundations that are too matte clinging to my dry patches.
Today’s post is a blogger collaboration with the lovely Jade from Bellainizio.co.uk. She posts amazing, informative beauty reviews, lifestyle posts and not to mention that she’s a absolute beauty and has the cutest style! We decided to do our top five foundations based on our opposite skin types, mine being dry and hers being oily so all of our readers would be catered for. So if you have oily skin please visit her part of the collaboration here.

Starting off with the foundation with the highest coverage. The newest foundation from Revolution Pro makes short work of covering my old acne scars and eye bags as well as any blemishes I may have, whilst having a creamy satin matte finish. It seems quite matte when you first apply but softens once it warms up to your skins natural temperature, leaving the most flawless looking base that doesn’t cling to dry patches. This costs £7 for 25ml with 18 shades to choose from.
I don’t always like to wear a full coverage foundation, especially on days when I’m just doing the school run and going about my chores. This foundation gives a medium coverage and contains vitamin C that helps brighten and vitamin E which helps hydrate the skin. It gives the most gorgeous glow from within look and doesn’t show any dry patches or texture thanks to the the dewy finish. This drugstore foundation costs £9.99 for 30ml and only has 9 shades.
The newest edition to my collection is the Nars foundation. I recently reviewed it here. This combines coverage without the heaviness, and a lovely thin formula that blends like a dream and gives you a ‘your skin but better’ look about it. It offers a semi matte finish but is in no way drying, just perfect looking natural skin. This high end beauty costs £35 for 30ml but is worth every penny in my opinion.
My favourite foundation out of the five is the Too Faced Born this way Foundation, the formula is a god send for dry skin because it’s infused with coconut water which naturally replenishes water levels, hydrating your skin while it covers. It also has hyaluronic acid which the gives the skin a more youthful appearance. This foundation softens out any imperfections without caking or excentuating dry patches. I also love the coverage (medium but it can be built up easily to full). This is the long lasting of the five in terms of wear and it looks the same as when I first apply it by the end of the night. This cost £29 for 30ml and has 24 shades.
Lastly is the Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation, this is a must for anyone who likes a super light coverage, it can be built to a medium however. This has a gorgeous dewy finish and makes the skin look so fresh and healthy because of the ‘breathable skin technology’ that helps lock in moisture. It’s £8.99 for 30ml and has 14 shades.
