Beauty Buzz Focus shares with you, 5 foundations you’ll love for summer.
Foundations are great complexion tools for enhancing the skin, they allow us to blur and diffuse hyper pigmentation, cover up bruises, blemishes, and more, while equally allowing us to modify the color of our skin, play with our skin’s texture by enhancing it with shine and reflection or mattifying the skin and allow no light to reflect.
Since foundations can alter the skin color and texture it is important to choose a foundation shade that suits your needs, expectations, lifestyle, skin type and color.
The choice of color for the face is always crucial, remember that it is important that the face and body have similarities, doubly important if skin of the decolletage is showing!
Any major differences in the color of the skin of the body and the skin of the face, signal that a skin correcting product is in use, which defeats a foundation’s true purpose; to mimic the skin and be a tool to perfect our complexion without it falsifying our natural coloration and complexion.
Today, I will focus on foundations that have different properties and textures; hopefully allowing you to find a texture and performance to suit your needs. The one thing that all of these liquid foundations have in common is that I use them frequently and adore them, and I am excited to share my preferences with you.
So, let’s dive into these liquid foundations and see which ones work for you!
Give me a halo glow and sun protection, please!
I am loving this Smashbox product, the Halo Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 25 with Hyaluronic Acid. The Halo Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 25 with Hyaluronic Acid is a lightweight, luminous, tinted moisturizer that spreads beautifully on the skin, offers a light coverage to the skin, and leaves the skin looking and feeling hydrated and dewy, all day long.
Even though there is a high SPF protection factor, it does not impact the impressive fluid texture of this tinted moisturizer. This is great if you want an easy to apply, light-coverage, tinted moisturizer that illuminates the skin beautifully; it also receives powders well; and is long lasting whether set with powder or not.
A beautiful foundation for daily use that is protecting and nourishing for the skin, an amazing hybrid makeup product that really impresses me; I have found myself wearing it often, as it looks untraceable in the sun and adapts to my skin tone.
Flattering on all skin textures, this tinted moisturizer embellishes the skin in reflective, glowing, hydrated pigments, that keep the skin as full and lush as it keeps the skin tone looking balanced and brilliant.
It looks great after a long day’s wear and stays true to color, a new favorite of mine and definite suggestion! Light, luminous protection with good coverage, keeps your skin moist, evens out your complexion, and helps keep your skin stay safe. A must have summer product!
Blurring texture to enhance the beauty!
The Turn UP the Base Blur Balm Hybrid Foundation from ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starr is a whipped, texture-reducing, hyper-pigmentation diminishing miracle in a red tube with panache!
This amazing product is vegan and cruelty free and packs a wallop of hydration to make it even more comfortable on the skin. It is equally extremely lightweight and does wonders at reducing the appearance of lines and the appearance of the pores, the medium coverage is buildable and covers blemishes, hyper-pigmentation, and redness well.
My pores are larger, so I first tried patting the product onto my skin, never dragging it, to allow the blurring technology to build and layer on top of my pores. I was impressed by how much the blurring, beauty, balm layers to give more coverage and make the skin appear even smoother than before.
The Turn Up the Base Blur Balm Hybrid Foundation wears well, is quick and easy to apply and stays true to color, drying to a semi-matte finish. I use a little powder to set in my oilier areas and the product stays true to color, throughout the day.
As I continue to discover the products from ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starr, I continue to be incredibly impressed by the thoughtfulness behind the products and their performance.
Go out there, and find your shade now! So you can turn up your face with this base!
True to skin color and medium to high, buildable coverage.
Now some of you, may prefer a more covering foundation, something where the pigment will always cover the skin, blend with your existing skin color, and look dewy and satiny, all at once. Make Up For Ever, have relaunched their HD line with the absolutely impressive HD Skin Undetectable Longwear Foundation.
This formula has coverage, hydrates the skin continuously and stays true to pigment throughout the day and does not oxidize or change. It blends well with other products, can be sheered with oils or moisturizers, and looks phenomenal on camera, on video (take note you Zoomies) and in person and in picture.
This foundation is quickly becoming my new favorite foundation for any situation where I need more coverage on my skin. Many fuller coverage foundations can feel heavy on the skin, when I wear the HD Skin Undetectable Long-Wear Foundation, the coverage is phenomenal without losing the skin-like feel. This foundation moves with your features, does not crack on the face, and feels very lightweight considering how fully you can build the coverage with this revolutionary foundation.
If you have tried the previous HD Foundations from, Make Up For Ever, in my opinion, this is the best one they have ever launched. This new foundation retains all the satin and light reflecting properties of its predecessors, while gaining a huge, hydration boost, this makes it appear more skin-like once applied and blended onto the skin.
This foundation is a keeper and a winner, a must have for skin product lovers!

The L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum is a wonderful lightweight and moisturizing foundation that features hyaluronic acid in its formula, which helps it plump out the skin on which the product sits.
The coverage of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum is sheer and buildable to achieve a light to medium, type of coverage. Once the L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum is on the skin, it feels very lightweight and refreshing. The L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum dries to a satin dewy finish worn alone on the skin; it looks more matte with additional powder used to set it.
The color stays true, no oxidization occurs, and it is easy to set it with a powder for longer wear.
L’Oréal Paris have so many gems in their impressive collection of cosmetic products, the L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum is one such gem, precious, pigmented moisture in a glass bottle, it comes with a drop dispenser, like a serum, allowing precision and control in the amount taken from the bottle.

A sunset kiss to seduce your skin.
Montreal native, Sebastien Tardiff, co-founder of Veil Cosmetics, creates magic in every product he has launched for the skin so far, from his brilliant Complexion Fix, which I suggested here, during my recent Mother’s Day article; to the product I am introducing to you today.
The Sunset Skin Foundation is a light and whipped, airy formula which works on all skin types. This foundation comes packed with skin smoothing conditioners, humectants, and hydrators, making this foundation feel effortless and soft on the skin.
A wonderful selection of shades allows everyone to find a suitable shade for their skin tone and appreciate the sheer to medium coverage that this wonderful foundation provides.
I love using products that have been brilliantly and painstakingly thought through and this product is such an example, its creator, Sebastien Tardiff is a makeup genius, I highly recommend giving this foundation a try, you will be amazed at how refreshing it feels on the skin.
I do hope that this selection helps some of you, curious for a new foundation or possibly actively searching for a better option for the appearance of your skin.
Choosing a foundation can sometimes be like finding the right relationship, there can be a few, rough, first-dates before finding someone you are compatible with.
And please, always remember, your skin is unique to you, so your skin may not look the way you want it with a certain foundation, even if it works amazingly well on a sibling, colleague or friend.
However, should you want it, one thing I know is true; there is a bottle and shade, somewhere out there, just waiting to be tried, and perfect for you.
Until next time, stay beautiful!
