Hoping everyone had an amazing Christmas!
Since the Ordinary Serum foundation, I’ve started wearing foundation again and I’m on the hunt for light coverage, dewy foundations! If you like those types of foundation than cushion foundation is for you! Cushion foundations are really popular among Asian beauty brands. Asian skincare and beauty tends to be light, dewy and skin focused so it makes sense. KBeauty is a force to reckon with in the beauty world at the moment so much so that cushion foundations have made it into the drug store! Maybelline, Loreal and Wet n Wild all have cushion foundations. I started out with the Maybelline one first to scratch my cushion itch and holy the itch got bigger!… I love cushions! They leave a light, dewy finish to the skin and that is my makeup mantra right there. The coverage is light but can be built up to probably medium coverage at most. I apply one layer to my face with a damp beauty blender and if I have a blemish I can add on another layer. It leaves a dewy, satin finish to the skin, it even skin tone and is never cake-y looking.
Maybelline dream cushion
The compact comes with a circle sponge to pat the product on your face but I stick with a beauty blender since I don’t like using those. The first time I used this product I dipped my beauty blender in there was SO much product! Dab lightly, there is a lot of product in the cushion!
When I use such a light coverage base I like a more full coverage concealer to hide the areas that need help. Tarte shape tape is a great option!
If you like light coverage, dewy makeup than you have to try a cushion foundation. It will be your dream product! Some beauty brands in Sephora have cushion foundations. I want the Amore Pacific one, it’s just $60 so I have to make sure the color is perfect! Wet n wild has a cushion bronzer and highlighter which I am soo curious to try. I love the concept of cushion bronzer / highlighters/ blushes so crossing my fingers that 2018 will send them my way!
