Foundation is one of those products I never wore growing up. I remember dipping into different products like the Maybelline dream matte mousse (blast from the past) but never committing to an everyday foundation. In fact, it wasn’t until I started university that I would wear foundation for nights out but never in the day. I do believe that not using foundation for quite a while has left me with good skin in my twenties, I get comments about how clear my skin and I think this is down to not wearing face makeup everyday. But when I do go out for special occasions and nights out my go-to foundation is Nars Sheer Glow.
Now the name is the first thing that got me. It definitely isn’t glowy and dewy as it sounds but gives you more of a matte flawless finish. I did worry about it sitting on my dry skin but it vanishes into the skin, rather than sitting on the top and looking cakey and really does make my skin look amazing. They have a great range of shades but I like to mix two of my favourites to achieve the best colour. This also means I can use both bottles in Winter and Summer as my skin changes. It really is one of those formulas where a little goes a long way, so it will last you a fairly long time and is a great medium coverage yet buildable foundation! I like to use a buffing brush with mine but recently I’ve been using the real techniques blending sponge (review to come shortly) which has been really nice too!
If you’d like to see this on my skin click here. It retails for around £31 but it will literally last your forever and is such a great foundation, you wont regret it! You can pick up your Nars Sheer Glow from Spacenk, Selfridges or even asos.
