So for a long time I thought Laura Mercier was the best for full coverage foundation and there cannot be any other foundation that can be as good or better. Was I wrong? Well yes because there is a new foundation in the market or should I say a new brand called Artist of Makeup which has now become my favourite foundation! Don't get me wrong I still love me my Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation and is the reason why I did a review on it.
So a background history, this brand has been brought about by a self taught makeup artist by the name of Zukreat. I came across her through Youtube when I was looking at Heife Wehbe's makeup tutorials and her tutorial stood out for me. Her makeup skills are really something as she is creative and different from a lot of other makeup artists in how she creates various makeup looks. So when she launched her makeup line the first product I ordered was the foundation cause ya'll know I love my foundations. The service was amazing cause the product came through in the same week.
This is the packaging of the foundation and retails at £15.00. It comes in a pan form so the product can be stored in palettes which is great if you have a lot of makeup but don't have enough room to store it anywhere. I am in the shade 30 and was easy for me to choose my shade as Zukreat has matched the foundations with MAC foundation shades on her website.
Here is a before and after look of applying just one layer. Before being the left picture and after being the right picture. This was took in natural daylight so you can see that after applying the foundation my skin looks even and flawless. I don't really need concealer because my under eye circles have been covered well which cuts down my time for when I apply my makeup so that is a thumbs up for me!
I use the Real Techniques buffing brush when I want the most coverage and a flat foundation brush or a sponge for a lighter coverage.
The foundation unlike most other full coverage foundations does not feel heavy or "cakey" on the skin. I don't feel like I am wearing any foundation. The makeup is a cream texture and gives the skin a satin look. I find that after wearing the foundation all day I don't need to touch up and this may be due to having dry skin so I cannot say for sure if those with oily skin would need to touch up.
So anyway those are my thoughts on the foundation and I am excited to try some other products from Artist of Makeup range. I hope you enjoyed reading this review and if you have tried the foundation give me your thoughts by leaving a comment.
