I rarely ever change my makeup base. It’s such a hassle to find the right shade especially for my complicated tone and my combination skin. I’ve stayed loyal and true to Make Up Forever’s Ultra HD Setting Powder since I’ve first tried it on because I absolutely loved it so I did not hesitate when Make Up Forever sent me the new HD Skin Foundation.
Why Make Up Forever HD Skin Foundation?
The new Make Up Forever HD Skin Foundation is powered by Micro-Skin Technology that offers a flawless, true-to-skin and 24 hour wear making the foundation undetachable and syncs with your skin. It is a medium to full coverage, natural finish foundation that flexes with skin for no caking or settling into lines.
It is vegan, non-comedogenic, waterproof, sweat-proof and comes in sustainable packaging.
I’d be lying if I said I buy makeup solely for it’s formula. Packaging is a very important factor because, well, it’s going to sit on my vanity table so it better look good. On top of it’s chic design, it’s bottle is made out of 40% recycled glass, the cap is bio-based plastic (wood oil) and it’s plastic pump is removable so you can reuse the bottle or recycle it safely.
How to Choose Your Undertone
Are your veins Green, Blue or in between?
Blue: Cool Undertone = R
In Between: Neutral Undertone = N
Green: Warm Undertone = Y
Then select your shade according to Light, Medium, Tan or Dark. Below are swatches from Make Up Forever for you to compare the shades to your skin.
Coverage, Finish & Wear
I have a very warm undertone and tan very easily so I usually have to switch to a darker foundation when I come back from a beach vacation and to make things worse, my forehead and mouth are darker than the rest of my face. My skin also oxidizes easily, foundations with darker tones and older formulas make me look dull. Since it’s such a hassle, I tend to skip foundation altogether until my skin goes back to it’s original tan-less state but I have to risk looking greasy. I love a natural, barely-there, foundation but I wasn’t able to find the right matte foundation in my shade that will blend easily into my uneven skin tone before and after being out in the sun until Make Up Forever HD Skin Foundation.
Isabelle’s Shade: 2Y30
I only need a little to get this smooth coverage. See how well this foundation blends and the colour is just right for my uneven skin tone! I was stoked after my first wear when it did not oxidize despite being out all day! It also did not cake into the folds of my skin which normally happens when it gets hot and humid. I can barely believe how flawless it looks.
Put on a nude lipstick and mascara and I can finally have that barely there look that I’ve always wanted without colour correcting base or heavy application. This is going to be my go-to foundation for a long while, it’s going to a very hard one to beat and it’s going to make your SGD $68 worth every cent.
