Review | Makeup Forever HD Foundation
Hello! Long time no see :) I’ve been quite busy these past few weeks, but I haven’t forgotten about my blog! I decided to review the Makeup Forever HD Foundation I recently purchased. Although I’m happy with my NARS Sheer Glow, I was finding that I wanted a foundation that looked amazing in high-def photography and this foundation definitely lives up to its name.
This is a medium-to-full coverage foundation, yet still manages to look natural at the same time. How it does that exactly, I have no idea! This finish of this foundation is not too matte and not too dewy, it’s somewhere straight in the middle. It’s not that type of foundation that makes you look like you’re “glowing from within” but it’s the type of foundation that looks like skin.
The lasting power of this foundation is pretty good. I’ve worn this foundation for 6 hours and it holds up well. I’ve heard some criticisms that this foundation isn’t good with oily skin, but with a good primer, I find that the foundation holds up well on my skin.
Even though the Makeup Forever HD Foundation comes in a ton of shades, I had a really difficult time finding a shade that works for me. For some reason, whenever I tried to get colour matched to this foundation at Sephora, the makeup artists always wanted to match me to 153. This was extremely frustrating because 153 made me look like an oompa loompa. It was way too orange for me!
