I’m not going to lie, a good foundation actually makes my makeup. I feel a good base just sets you off to the best start to the day, and when it stays flawless all day long, it’s a really good feeling. I heard some great things about this foundation for a long time and it’s been a must in my beauty collection now for a couple of months, so it’s time to talk about it.
It’s the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation, probably my favourite foundation for a guaranteed flawless coverage as its one I can always rely on. Every time I apply it I know it’s going to make me feel good, and I find that really important. If I’m in a rush but going somewhere nice I always reach for this as I know what outcome ill get with it. I always switch up my primers to, from mattifying to glowy primers and the foundations just works all the time. My preferred way to apply this is with a damp Beautyblender as it bounces on so seamlessly and quick. The Ultra HD finish has been created to melt into the skin to give an unfiltered flawless finish in any light, which has been specially developed for TV and filming conditions that use 4K cameras.
What I love about this foundation and the brand itself is that they have an amazing colour range available and I found it so easy to colour match myself. When shopping for foundations I usually get samples or a weeks worth of the product from the beauty counter and test it, and from the first test I just knew I needed it and I haven’t put it down since. I always go for this for daytime makeup to evening glam as it gives a medium coverage but is so easy to build.
The coverage doesn’t ‘mask’ your face either; it’s quite glowy and diminishes the appearance of blemishes instead of masking your face like some fuller coverage foundations do. Although it does give a medium-full coverage, the formula is very lightweight, almost featherweight as it lets your skin breath and doesn’t sit heavy at all. I usually apply just one light coat of this for my desirable medium coverage but glowy and flawless finish. I’m wearing it in this photo below.
Like the brand itself, the packaging is very minimalistic and simple, just how I like packaging. It comes in a plastic casing that is so handy for travelling, it does appear glass like to bring a luxurious feel but the plastic means its quite unbreakable.
Make Up For Ever also has a stick version of this, which I use a darker shade of for contour and that blends so easily to and they work great for contour. I’d love to try out the stick in my actual shade to see the difference in formula.
