There’s no secret that finding your perfect holy grain foundation can be hard to find. It might take some time and a couple of misses before you find the perfect one. Having a great foundation is the starting base for any makeup look and is very essential. When I first started doing my makeup I turned to the drug store, which typically everyone does, I did not have much luck and went to the high-end, which I loved. Investing in a great foundation that you love is totally worth it, but I have recently fell in love with a drug store foundation that I am excited to share with you all! So below I will be sharing my holy grail foundations, both high-end and drug store.
Holy Grail High-End
My holy grail high-end foundation is Estee Lauder Double Wear.
I first heard about this foundation on YouTube, which is very popular and raved about in the beauty world. I gear towards full coverage foundations and I have oily skin so I wanted a foundation that would cover everything and control my oils and this stuff does exactly that! This is full coverage yet does not make you look cake faced or look like you have a mask on, which nobody likes. I would recommend this foundation for any skin type, I know people who have dry skin that love this foundation as well. This foundation is more on the pricer side, retails for $37, but is worth every penny. And since it is a full coverage foundation you only need a couple of dots to cover your whole face, so the product also lasts you a long time. Overall this is an amazing product that I will continue to repurchase.
Holy Grail Drug Store
L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation
I am head over heels in love with this foundation! I honestly feel like this is a dupe for the Estee Lauder Double Wear. This foundation does exactly what the Double Wear does plus it feels lighter! It is also a fraction of the price! It retails from $11.99 to $12.99 depending what drug store you buy it at. The longevity of this product is pretty amazing and it is matte so all my oily prone girls will love this. If your face is more on the dry side I would recommend adding a moisturizer first before applying the foundation and it will still look flawless. Many beauty gurus say that this foundation has the quality of many high-end foundations and it even better than most, which I totally agree! This foundation is worth trying in my opinion since it is so affordable and accessible.
