I'm looking for a new foundation. Something long wearing, but not too heavy (I've tried double wear and found it too heavy). I also need a blusher, concealer, etc. in short, a whole new face! I have a wedding in a few weeks and want to look glowing (if possible!)
I really rate YSL foundation Fusion Ink. Light but long lasting, and you can layer it for more coverage where you need it. Ask for a sample to get the correct colour match - they have lovely dinky pots with an inbuilt applicator (good for touch ups on the move). Bobbi Brown is excellent for blushers and other products, make an appointment to get properly made up. Alternatively , Liz Earle make up is good, especially the powder blushers which have lots of pigment so they last well but look very natural . Tell the counter staff you are a bride to be and I am sure you will get excellent service .
another for touche eclat from YSL - it is expensive £32 approx but you're using such a small amount that it works out in price similar to much cheaper foundations. If you go to the YSL counter they may give you a small bottle sample (they do at mine). Not only does it let you test the product before purchse but you could also pack that away for the wedding.
I second Bobbi brown for blusher, they do beautiful natural looking ones (actually all their make up is lovely). I also have a Dior blusher called rosy glow (or maybe healthy glow) which looks bright pink but magically when you use it it gives a perfect natural glowing flush.
I'm very impressed by MAC Face and Body. It's got no SPF in so there wont' be any ghostly face in photos. It lasts really well, even through 36 degrees of heat on the tube in London a few weeks ago! Its a very light watery kind of formula but sets quite quickly and gives medium coverage. I bought the 120 ml size in March - I use it every single day and am barely a quarter of the way through the bottle so very good value too
