Base makeup for the girls that like it natural!

Ranked in order of coverage I’m sharing 3 different face bases for girls that don’t like heavy foundation! I don’t even wear foundation during the week.  I spot conceal! But I appreciate a light foundation for going out, taking pictures and just giving your look some more oomph when you feel like it.  Its definitely needed sometimes!
The Ordinary Serum Foundation 
This foundation is hardly a foundation.  Its a super light weight liquid that will just even out the skin tone.  Freckles, blemishes and acne will still be visible and it will leave your skin with a satin / dewy finish.  I really like this stuff.  It’s light enough and faster than spot concealing.  It won’t cover freckles and its great for a natural, no makeup makeup. This stuff is a savior on dry skin! It doesn’t cling to dry patches and it makes your skin look healthy.  I like this best paired with a dewy primer like Mac strobe cream.  I always reach for that but it looks particularly well paired with this and it leaves your skin dewy and healthy looking. This is only $6 and its awesome for day to day wear.  It’s not the longest lasting foundation but I don’t mind and I wouldn’t really expect it to be! I apply this with a beauty blender but the sponge will eat up some product because its very liquid.  I don’t mind it. The lighter coverage the better because I don’t have a face for foundation! But fingers or a brush would help with the coverage. Slightly of course!
Maybelline Dream Cushion 
BB cushion foundations are great for those that like light, dewy coverage. This is light coverage but can be built up to medium, especially if you use a beauty blender.  I say toss the sponge that comes with it unless you keep it for touchups. This isn’t the longest lasting formula like a matte foundation would be but it’ll take you through the day while keeping your face fresh.  It’s a luminous, glowy finish and I love that! The packaging is also perfect to take with you for touch ups on the go! The shade range of this foundation isn’t the greatest and its limited.  I don’t think this color is my perfect match so I have to apply it to my entire face.  Only bummer since I would love it for spot covering. I like this product and you can control the coverage with the sponge!
It cosmetics CC illumination. 
This says its a full coverage but I say its medium. I also use it sparingly and I know you can build it up to be more full coverage.  This is also the dewy version so its going to have less coverage then the matte one. This one lasts pretty well through out the day and boy is it so pretty and natural on the skin!  I love the illumination version because it has little specks of shimmer and you can get away with just applying this to your face because you will glow! Ok maybe add some bronzer. 😉  This stuff is very comfortable on the skin and it feels super light weight. I like this stuff because I find that it never looks cakey.  I like applying it best with a sponge. Its super easy to work with.  Its natural looking but it still helps to cover blemishes.  It really is your skin but better! Also 10 bonus points for the SPF 50!
