I believe that all women are pretty without makeup and can be pretty powerful with the right makeup – Bobbi Brown
How are you all doing? I wish all of you and your family Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Hope you all spent some wonderful time with your family in the holidays. So while enjoying the holidays I thought to review on the most essential make-up product almost every girl have – Foundation. A good foundation is really a life saver for all girls. The above quote by Bobbi Brown is true, if you feel you have perfect skin color you don’t need to put a foundation but now-a-days a foundation is not used to make your face look fairer..it’s used for make your skin look natural and powerful.
The Common Myth
One mistake which a lot of girls make and which I also made in my starting days was to just go to Sephora and pick up a foundation from a good company without seeing if that matches my skin tone or not. It’s very important to chose your foundation strictly that matches your skin tone. So next time you go to buy foundation talk to the people at the store and ask help to choose the correct one.
So today I am going to present you with Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Review and Swatches. After spending a lot of time and money I nearly gave up on foundation . Sometime I chose full coverage foundation that make my skin appears heavy, sometime cakey. Then finally I met my life saver foundation . Being a brand name bb really has a lot to offer.
BB For ALL
Bobbi Brown offers foundation for the below types of skin tones so you must research the perfect one based on the skin tone you have:
Then they offer different types of foundation:
Once you choose your type then there are different types of shade which you can choose based on your skin tone.
I have a dry sensitive skin with a medium skin tone, I chose the below mentioned foundation and shade which I am going to Review Today:
Product: Skin Foundation SPF 15
Shade: Natural 4
A truly modern foundation that offers invisible, weightless coverage that looks like skin, not makeup (it’s no wonder it’s a bestseller). This long-wearing perfectly balanced formula evens skin tone, minimizes the appearance of pores, and conceals imperfections. Its hydrating technology leaves skin feeling cushioned, comfortable, and clean- skin looks like itself, only perfected. The shade I chose is Olive Beige with neutral undertones.
Since it is a liquid foundation, so it is a little watery but thick enough that it sticks to the face. Only 2 pumps should be enough for your face. Always use a good brush to apply. I use the Make Up Professional Brush no 108 which I find the best for applying foundation. Do not use blender with this as the sponge will absorb some of the liquid. However with a brush the creamy texture blends easily leaving the skin with a natural yet polished finish.
This has a sheer to medium coverage and gives a true skin look. Just one layer should be sufficient but if you want to conceal acne or blemishes, you can use two layers. It does not form cake even when built up. Use a moisturizer before applying best with some SPF. This has SPF 15 which gives quite good protection from the sun too. And it does not feel heavy and creasy, yet my skin does not feel tight with it either.
If you use it with a primer and powder it can easily last 7-8 hours. Other foundations I use, used to slip off my face after 5 hours and used to patch up in areas. With this you won’t ever notice these issues.
I have very sensitive skin but Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation SPF 15 is so gentle so I do not break out and it looks really natural. This does not have any sweet fragrance and I am very fine with that. Overall this is a beautiful foundation, never sticky or cakey and makes your face FLAWLESS. I highly recommend this Bobbi Brown foundation for people with dry medium toned skin complexions.
