Best Foundations for All Skin Types

A girl can’t be expected to settle down with just one foundation! I personally need a different formula based on season, event, temperature, day of the week… why limit yourself? It’s your FACE. If my skin is super dry, the last thing I want to do is shellac a heavy layer of makeup over it. And if it’s broken out, I need more coverage. Each foundation in my repertoire is a little bit different and has a different beauty perk. No matter your skin type, coverage preference, or whether you prefer matte or dewy, I’ve got you “covered” with my favorites, reviewed here.

Before we go on: Remember to get a winter foundation and a summer foundation. You don’t want a pale foundation covering your sun-kissed skin, and the reverse is true in the winter. Nobody likes a dark foundation line on your chin.

The formula is velvety and soft to the touch, and feels as light on your skin. A great option for those “I just look like this” days or those who prefer low maintenance makeup but still need some coverage. My go-to in summer.

What To Get From The Sephora Fall Sale

Alright let’s get right down to it. The Sephora Fall Sale is here from now until November 15th. I’ve already made four online purchases and been in-store twice, and I’m ready to talk about my purchases. While beauty is fun, the Sephora Fall sale is serious.As for the discount, if you are VIBRouge or VIB you get 20% off (the first time VIBs get 20% too), Insiders (everyone else) get 15% off, which is nothing to sneeze at since Sephora rarely has ANY discount codes. Overwhelmed by where to start? Right here in this very post, I’m sharing my top products to stock up on.

If you’re looking for something I didn’t list (like a hairdryer or a new primer), but not sure what you want, Sephora staffs up like crazy during this sale, so go in store and ask an associate. They are super knowledgeable and will have the right recommendation based on your needs. The best part of it all? Sephora has a 30 day return policy EVEN IF IT’S BEEN USED. So, no risk at all to try something new.

And remember it’s also the perfect time to pick up replacements for the tools you use everyday but you haven’t thrown away in like, 10 years, like your eyelash curler,  blending sponge, or foundation brush. A good time to replace those grimy tools.
