Foundations are the single hardest makeup item to buy, don’t you agree?
Though I have so many foundations, I’m always trying out new ones, trying to find the best one out there. I only blog about foundations that I love, and Too Faced Born This Way Foundation is one to blog about!
Born This Way is a full-coverage, buildable oil-free foundation. Once on the skin, it blends together like harmony to make the skin and foundation look like one. It is a fuller coverage foundation if you are someone like me who loves a lot of coverage. If you are looking for a very natural finish in your foundation this isn’t for you. Don’t get me wrong – it doesn’t look cakey or anything close to that, but it does provide a lot of coverage.
During the day, or under natural light it does show. Another plus point about the foundation is that it photographs beautifully. There is no SPF in the foundation, which sucks because you’d have to wear it separately for sun protection, nut in terms of a foundation it makes it photograph well. For me, I usually have two foundations that I use all the time – one for day, and one for evening/events. This foundation I can use for both! I apply less and blend it out for the day time, and build it up for evening or clients.
I wear NC15 from MAC, and in the Born This Way Foundation I wear Porcelain. I like applying it with a damp beauty blender, I feel like they work well together and helps the foundation to look more natural for day time. For clients or evening makeup, I use the foundation with a stippling brush. I’ve been setting it with the Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder and also the Studio Fix MAC. Both powder and foundation work beautifully together.
I love the simple design of the bottle and packaging of the product. The built-in pump is convenient and I usually use 1-3 pumps to cover my entire face. The foundation is long lasting, and once applied it sets into place.
Every product suits people different, especially foundations. So please do test it out before you buy it to see if it will work for you.
