High End Foundation Favourites

Whilst the drugstore has some strong contenders, I’ll be honest, most of my foundation favourites come from the high end counters. I demand a lot from a foundation, I want coverage and lasting power, the perfect finish, and above all, I want it to feel comfortable on the skin. I haven’t ever found anything in the drugstore that does all of that, but I do have a high-end wardrobe that does just that.Let’s talk about my first high-end foundation purchase, the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation. I fell in love with the light glowy finish, the easy to apply serum formula, and the fact it’s easy to build for a good medium coverage. I then worked at YSL for a spell, and fell in love with it all over again. If you have sensitive skin you may want to avoid this, it contains liquid gold particles which can irritate the skin, but I’ve never had a problem with this! It makes my skin look incredibly healthy!Moving on to the Dior BB Creme, this is one of only two BB cremes I actually like. This is my go to summer base, when I don’t want to think about my makeup. This stuff even looks good when it’s applied sans mirror with your hands, it’s that good. This just evens out the complexion and adds a little glow, but is virtually undetectable on the skin.My one true foundation love, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, of course deserves a mention here. There’s not an occasion that this foundation isn’t perfect for. It’s freaking amazing. It’s got a good medium coverage, with a not matte but not dewy finish, just natural. It’s long wearing and so comfortable on the skin, and despite the price tag, it’s worth every penny and more.I gave in to the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser hype back in September, and boy am I glad I did. We’re talking glowy, perfected skin in a bottle here. It’s got more coverage than your standard tinted moisturiser, and it just kinda….glows. It’s amazing.And lastly, the most recent stash addition, the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless foundation, a seriously lightweight formula with outstanding coverage, you can’t feel this on your skin, it just makes you look flawless! It’s pricey, but it’s easy to wear this light or for fuller coverage, it’s so versatile that it’s worth having to hand!What are your favourite high end foundations?
