Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation

This one is probably one of the most used foundation in my kit. The iconic red tube is super light weight yet has incredible coverage. It’s a cream that turns to liquid when applied. The finish is very natural looking and great for all skin types.


Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

 If you want a sheer or moderate buildable coverage I recommend this oil-free formula. I use one pump on the back of my hand and apply it with a Beauty Blender. Try applying a sheer layer then go back and build coverage where is needed. It blurs imperfections and it’s also lightweight.


CHANEL Smooth-Effect Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen

Talk about a matte velvet finish! This formula is also oil-free. A lot of  my foundations in my kit I find tend to be oil free because I like to keep the shine down on the red carpet. It’s long lasting and has soft focus pigments that smooth and create a flawless finish. Great for normal to oily skin. It also has SPF 15,  bonus!


Dior Forever Skin Glow Radiant Perfection Skin-Caring Foundation SPF 35

Here is a foundation for those who want more of a medium to full coverage. I’m a fan of this one and keep it stoked in my kit because the finish isn’t heavy on the skin. This formula lasts for 24 hours and leaves skin looking radiant.




Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation

Ok, if you have not tried the Light Wonder you really must! I keep a couple of these shades with me on jobs at all times. The formula is lightweight and illuminates the skin creating a glowing effect. It’s perfect for those who have dry, normal and combination skin.


Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick

With so many options in shade ranges I know I can rely on these foundation sticks to help me create a flawless finish on my client. They are so versatile and can be used as a concealer or as a foundation.  It’s great for all skin types and it’s a medium to full coverage. Almay Smart Shade Skintone Matching Makeup

Finally a foundation that takes the guesswork out of matching to your perfect shade! I love this one in particular because it goes on white and upon application it will match your skin tone. The exclusive Almay Tonemimic shade-sensing bead technology is pretty impressive. One shade can match up to three different skin tones. It’s very light weight and has a natural glowing finish.
