Let us start today’s Makeup Forever HD Foundation review by stating that this particular foundation sets itself apart from all others currently available on the market. It has the perfect combination of natural finish and coverage. It has been specially created to go unnoticed both on HD cameras and to the naked eye.
This foundation should be used for special events, photography session or even for filming. Yet do not let yourself be intimidated, it can be a perfect accessory for daytime wear as well.
MakeUp Forever HD Foundation Review – Coverage
It is a medium to full coverage foundation. So by simply applying one layer with a brush will neutralize redness and cover blemishes as well as mild skin imperfections. Another fine layer will be more than enough to hide acne, scars and dark spots. However, if applied with a wet beauty blender this product is guaranteed to conceal any skin imperfections you might have.
It is light and has a beautiful natural matte finish that replicates the look of natural, untouched skin. The formula is constructed to catch light and offer an intense glow effect to the skin. This satin like finish looks amazing under any lighting, and so it is perfect for indoor and outdoor photography and film.
MakeUp Forever HD Foundation Review – Formula
This foundation is silicone and water based, completely oil-free that prevents oild buildup during the day. It is perfect for both young and mature skin. In my line of work using this product I have never come across a client that has suffered from an alergic reaction to any of its ingredients.
However if you know that your skin is extremely sensitive, make sure to test it on a small skin area before applying it to your whole face. You can also check the ingredients and make sure that it does not contain anything you might be alergic to.
Recommendations for different skin types
If your skin is dry or mature I recommend applying a water or silicone based primer and a moisturizer before applying this foundation. This will allow for the foundation to achieve a more smooth coverage, without your skin absorbing an insane amount of product over uneven areas.
However if you have extremely dry skin, this foundation is not for you. It will apply uneven and will work against you, highligting your flaskes and pores.
With normal to oily skin type, all you need to do to prepare for this foundation is apply a good moisturizer. This product will settle on your skin like a layer of silk, covering most imperfections with just one layer. If you do suffer from acne, scares, blemishes and dark spots, adding one more layer of this foundation will ensure for a clean perfect finish.
However if you prefer a more light makeup but still want to cover away those minor imperfection, I suggest applying just one layer of foundaton and top it off with a bit of spot concealer.
For those that have oily to extremely oily skin, I recommend applying a mattifying primer before your foundation. This will help keep your face sebum-free for the whole of the day.
This product has been made for oily skin types, yet it needs a little help to maintain its perfect satin finish throught the day. I recommend pairing it with anti-shine primes, blot powder or even setting sprays – generally anything that will help fix the foundation.
It is a bit of a more high maintanance foundation, yet long lasting natural soft finish is well worth the hassle.
