My Top 5 Most-Used Foundations

my top five foundations

I’ve used the term “foundation” loosely, here, because I mean it to incorporate other face bases such as tinted moisturiser, BB creams and complexion enhancers as well as the traditional high-coverage foundation. In truth, no BB creams or CC creams come anywhere near my top five face bases in terms of the most-used – it’s either a tinted moisturiser on days off or a fuller-coverage base on work days, when I’m on camera or at events or otherwise engaged outside of my house.

It’s taken me ages to put this video together because I really did monitor just how much I used each base – I test dozens of them and have a fair few that I use regularly, so it was actually quite difficult to narrow down my selection. But here we are. Enjoy – feel free to cheat and skip to the links beneath the video pane if you’re in a desperate hurry. You can also find more detailed reviews of most of the foundations by browsing the makeup category here.
