I didn't want to try it because it is a little bit pricey, but I was not happy with my current MAC Mineralize foundation that was not supposed to clog pores, but every time I wore it, a new zit would appear. The MAC foundation was a little dewy, which is not my favorite look. Completely matte is not my favorite look either. Somewhere in the middle is what I prefer.
I decided to give the Make Up Forever foundation a go. I usually wear the shade NC20 in MAC, and N120 is the equivalent to that shade. Fair-skinned color with slight yellow undertones.
The formula is not as thick as some other formulas, but that helps to create a smooth coverage. A little bit goes a long way, and you can build the coverage as much as you would like. If you don't like full coverage, you can just smooth on a little, or you can smooth on a lot for full coverage. It creates such a flawless look that is amazing!
My current foundation routine:
I always put a primer on my skin before I apply foundation, than I pump about 4 full pumps on the back of my hand and use a MAC 130 stippling brush to dip in the foundation and do small circles on my face starting underneath my eyes and working around my face clockwise.
* For a full-coverage look, I will pump 4 or 5 full pumps on the back of my hand and use my finger to dot the foundation spaced very close together in an area of my face and than work the brush in *
I always work it into my neck and a little on my chest, because I don't have an evenly colored chest. Once the foundation is applied I will put a concealer on under my eyes and other problem areas. From there I will put a finishing powder on for staying power.
My husband always mentions how pretty my skin looks with this foundation. It is an in-between to a matte and dewy look, and I would highly recommend it to anyone! Make Up Forever has a start-up kit that comes with the foundation. a really nice brush (really good reviews on it, I don't have it yet), finishing powder and primer all-in-one which is really the best deal! I wanted to try the foundation first to see if I liked it before I got the kit, but next time, I am getting the kit for sure!
