Hope you’re all well,
I totally forgot to share my new foundation routine! So for this week’s post, I thought I’d share some tips with making your foundation last longer and my thoughts on the Fenty Beauty Foundation!
Fenty Beauty Foundation (PRO FILT’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation) Review:
I’m in the colour 330 which is basically a MAC NC42.
The price of this foundation is £26 which I think is affordable for a high-end foundation. The design of the bottle is very minimal and sleek and the foundation itself smells like pineapple and papaya in a jar.
As the official name says, it has a matte finish and oh my, of all the foundations I have used this has to be the most photogenic foundation due to it’s “blurring” effect on the skin. The foundation sits really nice on my skin and doesn’t feel cakey at all and surprisingly with all these qualities, it’s a medium-full coverage foundation. The foundation sets by its self and dries quickly on to the skin so I would recommend applying a little amount at a time.
Unfortunately, this foundation does not work well with dry skin and if you have acne. The foundation will emphasise acne scarring and pores, I don’t know if their primer will help with this issue as I have never bought or tried it. I have also noticed the foundation slightly oxidises making me look a little tan/orange, however, I combat this with cream highlighting certain areas of my face to balance out the orange tone.
So, I rate this foundation a 3.5/5
My Foundation Routine:
- After exfoliating and cleansing, I apply almond oil to my face as a facial oil instead of moisturiser (especially if I’m using the Fenty foundation) and I let the oil set into my skin.
- I then apply MAC prep n prime primer on to my nose, cheeks, eyes – basically everywhere (I got a tester so I’m using it up).
- Then I use my Bobbi Brown corrector in the colour; medium/dark peach and I apply this to the areas of my face where I suffer from discolouration and acne scarring. I like this better than the LA Girl colour corrector as this doesn’t make my foundation look orange.
- I then lightly dust powder (Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed) to set all the areas that have corrector and lightly dust some power over my face. Applying powder before adding foundation makes your foundation look to stay in place and lasts longer.
- Using a damp beauty blender I apply my foundation on to face and neck and set my foundation by again, lightly dusting some powder onto my nose, chin and forehead. I don’t apply it to my cheeks as I’ll be (powder) contouring and highlighting as well as adding bronzer.
So, I hope you found this to be helpful!
Lots of love,
