FINDING A FOUNDATION THAT LASTS FOR THE BIG DAY
Proper skincare and makeup primer are essential for creating makeup looks that last throughout the day. However, foundation will determine how long the face makeup lasts, as it is the base for all other products. It can be overwhelming to find a long-wearing foundation that is supportive for your skin needs, whether you have dry, combination, or oily skin. Furthermore, makeup can be often expensive. Listed below are the top four best long-wearing foundations.
The overall top-rated foundation for a long-lasting finish is the infamous Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation. This is Estee Lauder’s number one foundation worldwide and Sephora’s best-selling foundation.
The product provides medium to full coverage and a satin finish that lasts for twenty-four hours. The satin finish provides comfortable wear for people with normal to oily skin and people with normal to dry skin. The biggest attraction for this long-wear foundation is its lightweight, breathable feel. This is the foundation you’ll want for your big day!.
The Estee Lauder foundation is in the higher price range, as it costs $43.00. Luckily, L’Oreal has a dupe.
The L’Oréal Infallible Fresh Wear 24 hour Foundation is one of the best drugstore long-wear foundations. Just like Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place, this L’Oreal foundation provides a satin finish with twenty-four-hour longevity—but for the price of $14.00. This product has a buildable, medium-coverage finish created with breathable skin technology.
For people with dry skin who are struggling to find a long-wear foundation that doesn’t cause the caked face look, the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is perfect. This product provides a beautiful, dewy finish that lasts all day without causing a buildup of oils.
It will leave your skin feeling like elastic. Wearing makeup all day on dry skin can make your skin feel tight; the makeup feels as if it’s laying on top of the skin rather than pressed into it. However, the NARS product melts into the skin, giving a flexible, breathable wearing experience and a glassy finish.
Lastly, the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation by Fenty Beauty is a must-have for people with oily skin. Rihanna created this product to provide the perfect year-round soft matte finish. If you’re looking for a shine-free, flawless and natural look on your big day, this is the foundation for you!
