    This video was so helpful! I am always so excited to watch your videos and I'm just an all around huge fan! ! If you haven't tried it yet I feel that a very affordable drugstore foundation is the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Breathable. I would highly recommend:)

    I love the Milani 2 in 1 foundation, but dang that smell kills my nose, like I love how it feels and looks on the skin, it's got good coverage but holy crap that smell is too much, I have to mix it with my Wet n Wild Photofocus and not only does it smell better but it looks more dewy and beautiful on the skin

    My favorite *was* Maybeline's Fit Me dewy finish formula for dry skin...until they changed the lightest shade and now it's way too yellow. I'm a true porcelain neutral and went with the matte formula to get 102, but it's a little too dry for my dry skin though.

      Lahela G my skin type is pretty normal. every now & then it gets a little oily or dry but it doesn’t last long. the way the foundation goes on is super streaky & more runny than other foundations i’ve used

    • Lahela G
      Lahela G 3 months ago

      Bryanna Grace what’s your skin type? I just learned recently that it all depends on the types of foundations you use plus your skin type and the formula of the foundation you are using that all play into how it’s going to come out on your skin, which has explained SO MUCH for me.

    Oh I can name my holy grail easily. The Wet n Wild cushion foundation. It's satin to dewy, stays on all day even without setting it, looks so hydrating and smooth and skin-like on my face, and even though it has some SPF (I think), it doesn't show flashback in photos. I literally cannot get enough of it and I'm on my third one now. I wear the lightest shade 106A.

      Shahrin Prome If u have dry skin I would stay farrrr away from it. even with my oily skin on a well hydrated base, I look so dry. I mix in a drop of it with the maybelline fit me matte and poreless and it looks really nice and lasts pretty well.

    I absolutely LOVE the way the Cover Girl Healthy Elixir foundation smells lol! When they repackaged it, I was so scared that the scent may not be there, that I made sure to check for the smell in the new packaging before buying 😂😂😂🤷🏼‍♀️ but, the old L’Oréal lipstick smell makes me want to vomit! Same with those maybelline glosses that were way popular a few years ago.... I couldn’t with the smell!

    This tutorial really helps me. As a beginner I needed to see this foundation video , drugstore especially, and I have dry skin, which you are the only one that ever put up foundations for strictly DRY skin. I can’t thank you enough. I’m going to be ordering a few of these. I can’t wait to see which one I love the most ❤️❤️

It’s like I’m buying so many but I’m looking for one or two idk I don’t understand USclipers HGs how they know so much about different foundations but still have favorites so confused!!!

  • Christine Horwath
    Christine Horwath 3 months ago

    I just realized that I don’t have oily skin like what? Yes my face is dry to combo or normal to dry/combination the oil is sweat just plain sweat so it needs to be waterproof but dewy ya right I have a hereditary disorder where my immune system is failing me I also have a tumor on my pituitary gland so my hormones are going wild and I sweat in snowy weather even with a tank top on but natural sebum or oil is not a problem on my skin go filter lol or figure
