8 Best Foundations For Your Big Day

Published by - The Wed Post | 6 minute read

While most makeup artists will use their foundations for your makeup, we urge you to buy your own foundation and ask them to use that. For one, your foundation will definitely suit your skin complexion and skin type. You know your skin the best, and you know how you want your foundation to look – whether you prefer a matte finish or a creamy finish, a lightweight foundation or a heavy one to act as a concealer, you know it best. Which is why we recommend that you try some of these amazing foundations before your big day and then finalize on the one that you think suits you the best!

M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid

This foundation is claimed to last as long as 24 hours, and a long-lasting foundation is a must on your big day! This foundation also contains SPF 15, which makes it even better in our opinion. With full to medium coverage, this foundation works well to conceal acne scars and dark circles. And, you get a really smooth matte finish which obviously looks great in photographs!

Sephora Collection 10 Hour Wear Perfection Foundation

This one comes in 9 different shades, so you will definitely be able to find one that perfectly matches your skin colour. This foundation has a very natural finish, which is great for people who don’t like to look all ‘caked up’. It contains hyaluronic acid which really helps smoothen the skin and reduce visible fine lines, as well as vitamin E which will nourish your skin – a great buy in our opinion.

Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation

This foundation is so light, you probably won’t even feel it on your face. Available in 12 different shades, you have a good variety to choose from. Think of this mousse foundation as a miracle worker – it conceals dark spots and fine lines, it blends well and gives a smooth matte finish, all while looks rather natural. Basically, you’re not going to feel like you have any foundation on, and it won’t even look like you’re wearing foundations – a win-win situation.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This is one of the best foundations in the market, but it is slightly expensive. However, we say quality over quantity! This oil-free foundation is so light, you can ask someone to touch your skin and they won’t be able to tell that you have any foundation on. It provides medium to full coverage, which is ideal. It is long-lasting, it blends easily, it’s very smooth and it has a radiant glow, which makes this a definite hit in our books! Best of all, this foundation is loved by most beauty bloggers which means it is tried, tested and approved!

Ps, there is zero oxidation with this foundation so you don’t have to worry about your foundation changing a shade or two.
