The best makeup foundation
1) value for the price 2) coverage 3) time without having to touch-up
Lancome: Teint Miracle
In my opinion, it is THE BEST foundation available. I have 'difficult' skin and I never thought I would get compliments on my complexion. Since I started wearing this foundation, AT LEAST once a month, someone asks what kind of makeup I wear because it looks "perfect", "flawless", "glowing", etc. It provides what it advertises; a glow from within.
Mac: Studio Fix
This was my go-to foundation whenever I worked in Los Angeles (not kidding) because it has great coverage and lasts all day even under hot lights with minimal touch ups. But be careful! A little bit goes a long way... or else you'll look like a pancake.
Chanel: Mat Lumiere
It's a little more expensive than some of the others, but it offers great coverage that looks very natural. It's not greasy by any means, but it has a youthful glow Whenever I purchased this product for the first time, I had friends ask if I had had a facial because it doesn't look like any normal makeup; it looked naturally flawless.
My first choice (for daily use) is Lancome Teint Miracle. I have acne prone skin and this is one of the only makeup foundations I've ever found that doesn't make me break out. I know it might seem expensive (compared to drug store brands), but 1 bottle, that I use every day, lasts me about 6 months, which is FAR longer than any drug store brand ever has. And as I mentioned above, I get compliments all the time. And let's be honest, what girl doesn't want to be told, "omg your face looks perfect!" Enough said ;)
