Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation

Foundation when applied right can make your skin look flawless and transform your whole make-up look. I'm not saying that we all need to wear or buy foundation, but recently I have found that a high coverage concealer applied pretty much everywhere on a bad skin day doesn't quite cut it. 

When I first started blogging the one make-up purchase I used to put off the most was foundation. I was always told 'you're skin is wonderful, you don't need it' or 'it's a waste of money at your age' but I eventually gave in and asked for my first foundation last Christmas, the L'Oreal True Match Foundation. 

In recent weeks I have accumulated 3 new foundations to try which filled me with excitement as each formula is very different...

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

THE GLOW GETTER : The Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation-£8.99* is definitely the most dewy foundation out of the three. It contains tiny gold glitter flecks which once applied to the face give your skin a healthy radiant glow. If your skin is dry and lacks lustre then this is certainly one for you. Even though my skin verges on oily sometimes I haven't found that this foundation makes me look sweaty. I think that this foundation during Summer should be applied sparingly to give a light coverage which isn't too heavy on the skin and apply a light dusting of bronzer to give a bronzed goddess effect, great if you're on holiday. 

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation

THE LIGHT-MEDIUM COVERAGE: Enter the Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation-£5.99, a light but buildable coverage foundation with a watery consistency. I bought this foundation for prom as I was looking for a foundation with no SPF which wouldn't cause any awkward flashback in photos. I loved wearing it that night, it was weightless on my skin and lasted well without fading or melting off during the evening. The applicator is slightly strange as there is no pump, you have to drop the foundation onto the back of your hand using a pipette. I have found that shaking the bottle before use combines the formula as the formula is very runny and can separate easily. 

THE RADIANT SKIN PERFECTER: I have to say, my favourite of the three has to be the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation-£6.99*. It sits on top of my skin nicely, doesn't fade awkwardly and gives coverage in the places I need it without forming a mask on top of my skin. I like wearing this foundation for work and apply half a pump onto the back of my hand and apply to the areas of my face that need the coverage, at the moment that is my forehead and chin, and then blend to make sure it sits on my skin seamlessly. 

What's your favourite foundation?
