Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation This is what I’m wearing in the photo above (no filter/edits), and this is a foundation I tried about 4 (??) years ago and still buy repeatedly. I feel like it’s a foundation that so many other people swear by and I totally agree that it’s a “holy grail” product. It’s medium to full coverage (buildable), and while it gives a good amount of coverage it still leaves you with a lightweight look. I wear shade 5.5.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil This is what I’m wearing in the photo above (no filter/edits), and I have been loving this for summer. It’s pretty light coverage and your natural skin pigment can still shine through which I personally love, but it’s also buildable if you want a little more coverage. Below I just have on one layer, so you can see that the natural pink tint and freckles still show through. If you want heavier or more full coverage though you probably won’t love this (just as a heads up). I also tried Ilia’s super serum skin tint and even though my skin is on more of the dry side, it made my face look very oily and I always had to use powder with it. For me, Kosas tinted face oil is a better fit for my skin and doesn’t require me to use powder. I wear tone 05.
It Cosmetics CC Cream This has been a favorite of mine for years and one that always finds it’s way back into my rotation. I feel like my friends also feel similarly – they are always like, this is one of the best foundations, I don’t know why I ever tried a different one! Even though it’s a cc cream, it is definitely closer to full coverage. I love that has SPF 50 and also comes in various finishes from matte to illumination (my personal fav). My shade is neutral medium.
Tarte Foundcealer Foundation I first tried this foundation last year and was surprised how much I ended up loving it. It’s more medium to full coverage and every time I use it I’m just like “wow my skin looks so good” lol. It is marketed as a moisturizer, concealer, and foundation all in on and I will say I truly don’t feel like I need a concealer when I wear this one. It also has SPF 20 which is nice!
