Hi all, I have an unexpected £40 going spare so am thinking of investing in some new decent foundation.
I am thinking possibly Prescriptives or Clinique....but there are SO many I don't know where to start? I have oily/combination skin with the occasional spot if that makes any difference. Looking for medium coverage.
Any suggestions of what works for you would be greatly appreciated.
Clinique, for sure - I think it's called Less Makeup or something like that: basically it 'works' on your skin at the same time as looking good, so over time you need less of it. I'll look it up.
EDIT: Even Better Make-up. It's exceptional, honest.
I didn't get on well with Clinique as it brought me out in red blotches!! Just a thought here seeing as you have some cash to invest, have you ever considered a primer? Its not something most of us would get i admit but seeing as you've got the money it may be worth it as this would settle your skin regardless of what foundation you use and as you have oily skin it will also help to keep the foundation on without patching the way it does on oily skin. Hope that helps?!
I have prescriptives virtual skin which is really good. I think they do another one specially for oily skin which provides more coverage but i forget what it's called o:
Clinique is a brand I as a makeup artist AND makeup wearer wouldn't touch. Their skin products are extremely harsh, so I dread to think what their makeup is like.
That said, Prescriptives is always one I turn to. I use Virtual Skin, but they do several different foundations for varying skin tones and types.
i could go on about it forever! but its 5 pounds more but litrli the onli ingredients in it are 5 minerals! thats actualy it im not lying and u get two shades one for summer and u put the most tinyest amount lyk toothpaste amount and it will actualy cover ur face really well and it wont even look like ur wearin foundation annnd it stays on so long you also get a mineral bronzer and mineral veil to make ur face look not shhiny and you get 3 brushes and um done what else to say except BUY IT!!!
Prescriptives will be the same price as Clinique/Estee Lauder etc so I'd go for that if I were you.
I wouldn't be as anti-Clinique as so many others are being though - while I didn't like their Superfit foundation AT ALL, their anti-blemish range was the only one to truly help my skin (and after 10 years of trying anti-blemish products, believe me, I've pretty much done the rounds there). Everyone's skin is different, remember.
