You are going to be a bride and you expect this day to be perfect, then you are not asking for too much. This is your day and there is no place for mistakes. When you are having a winter destination wedding, you need to make sure that everything is perfect and well planned. Like gifts, dresses, shoes, hairstyle and makeup, everything needs to fall in place. Makeup plays a huge role in your wedding. Everything looks good when the bride looks beautiful. And if you have read the previous article, you must have understood the steps to good bridal makeup. The first step was to choose the correct base. This is what this article is about, the Base of your bridal makeup which is a Foundation. The Best foundation for your skin is the one that gets absorbed in your skin tone and does not make your skin flaky.
Here I will compare the best foundations by a few brands and help you choose the correct one for yourself.
L’oreal Paris Infallible 24h Foundation
When it says 24 hours, it means 24 hours. This probably is the best foundation for your skin. This means it will stay till you don’t remove it. L’oreal Paris Infallible 24h Foundation gives you a matt finish. This foundation comes in a little thick consistency so it is good if you use a sponge or a blender to spread it evenly on the skin. It gives you a medium to full coverage depending upon the number of layers you put. A single layer can give you medium coverage. There are ten shades of the same foundation available in the market. Just make sure you are choosing the correct one.
If you are looking for a foundation that stays for long, this is the correct choice for you.
You are the bride for a winter destination wedding. This is the best foundation that you can buy for yourself.
Another version of this is the L’oreal Paris Infallible pro-matt Foundation but that is for the people who have extremely oily skin.
It can feel a little dry on people who have dry skin. So better use it after moisturising your skin properly. The other con is that it oxidises a bit. So when you are out to buy this product buy a shade lighter than your skin.
Rating: 5/5 (This is a star for me)
Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
The feature that makes it the best foundation for your skin is that it blends pretty much smoothly in the skin. Thus making the skin look natural and beautiful in photographs. Since blending is not an issue for this, it does not cake up on the skin. Mac Studio Fix Fluid foundation gives an airbrush kind of look. Well, who doesn’t like that?
A small amount of the product gives you high coverage. So two layers are more than enough for full coverage. The tendency of this foundation is to set quickly, so make sure that you blend it nicely but quickly. It comes in SPF 15 and does not give you a whitish look when you go out in the sun. Although it is better to apply sunscreen underneath the foundation. It has a matte finish but not a dry matt finish, a smooth matte finish.
Being waterproof makes it the best foundation in the lot.
Mac studio fix fluid foundation comes in a cylindrical bottle without a pump. This might not be good for the people who are not sure what amount of this foundation to apply. And also does not make it travel-friendly. I hate the fact that this foundation oxidises. And also a dry skin needs a heavy moisturising first.
Rating: 4/5 (Because of the Pump :P)
Revlon Photo ready Air Brush Effect foundation
First of all this Foundation comes with a pump.
Any foundation that comes with a pump is a thumbs up for me :p
Revlon Photo ready Air Brush Effect foundation has a creamy texture but not as a runny liquid. It is easy to blend as it gets absorbed in the skin easily. The key factor to this foundation is that it comes with glitter specks that are not visible through the bottle but when you apply it, you can easily notice the glitter specks on the face and on the neck. This is a good thing because it gives a dewy look to the face. The product provides a medium to full coverage.
A single layer provides a good full coverage, but if you are not a concealer person like me, try to put a second layer.
It is good to remove excess oil from the skin before applying this. A primer before every foundation helps in making the foundation stay longer.
Since Revlon Photo ready Air Brush Effect foundation comes with glitter specks, it doesn’t make it a right choice for everyday use. It might feel a little heavy on the skin, but a staying power can take care of that.

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation
Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation is a light to medium coverage foundation. As the name suggests the foundation has a satin finish, not too matte and not too dewy, a smooth satin finish.
It is the best foundation for you if you want to use it on the daily basis. For your wedding day, I am not sure, if this is the correct choice.
This foundation works perfectly for the people who want a look that is more than just a bb cream and light than a full coverage foundation. If you want to use it for a night party look, use it with concealer as this might not be able to hide all your acne scars and blemishes.
The back of the packaging of the bottle says that the foundation provides extraordinary coverage but I do not agree to that. For a heavy coverage, you will have to apply two to three layers of Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation.
Rating: 3.5/5 (Because it is perfect for daily basis… not for your wedding.
These were the products that can save your day if used properly. So get your hands on to these amazing products and look drop dead gorgeous on your D-day.
