3 Favorite Foundations

3 Favorite Foundations

Foundation is the most important step in makeup application for me because it creates the blank canvas on which all other makeup products are applied. If I can get my foundation right, and preferably perfect, then I am all set. It has been a long journey to finding the right foundation color with the right amount of coverage and finish for my type of skin. I have to admit I am still on that journey with the ever evolving and exciting world of beauty and new technology.

At the moment, these are my 3 favorite foundations –

Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting FoundationTom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation

I love the traceless foundation because it is a lightweight formula, medium coverage and a dewy finish, which is great for natural looking makeup. I have combination skin so I do use a setting powder especially on my T zone. Sometimes I don’t set the rest of my face for an even glowier look. I wear the shade Tawny 07 mixed with Caramel 8 and it just melts into my skin and makes it look very vibrant and healthy.

My shade: Tawny 07 + Caramel 8


  •  A balanced complexion that glows with vitality and radiance
  • Extremely lightweight and luminous, without being shiny
  • easy to build up or sheer down
  • SPF 15 protects skin from sun damage.

MAC Prolongwear FoundationMAC Pro Longwear Foundation

This is my go to long wearing foundation for days that I need flawless makeup. It has medium coverage with satin finish. Honestly I mix it with the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation, Tawny 7 and I feel like the combo makes the perfect foundation for me. I don’t feel like I need to set it with a setting powder but I do on the T-zone anyway because I want the make up to stay put throughout my day or night.

My Shade: NC44


  • Lightweight
  • Satin Finish
  • Buildable coverage
  • Does not move on the skin or transfer easily

Luminous Silk Foundation Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This luminous foundation is very fluid and almost weightless with dewy finish and a flawless lit-from-within glow. It is a buildable with medium coverage foundation that improves skin texture and blurs minor imperfections. I wear it on days that I don’t really want to wear a lot of make up and it just gives me a nice glow. My skin looks like I have no foundation on but with a really nice glow.

My shade: 8


  • Improves skin texture
  • Blurs minor imperfections
  • Oil free yet still hydrating
  • Buildable coverage
  • Available in many shades

What are some of your favorite foundations?

  1. Any drugstore brands you can recommend? I’m looking for flawless matte finish without breaking bank 😉

    • Hi Zhane, Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless and L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundations should give you good coverage wit a matte finish. If you have oily skin be sure to set your foundation with a setting powder. I hope this helps.
