Make Up Forever HD: Great For Darker Skinned Beauties
This is a reader review of Make Up For Ever HD Foundation. Thanks Lauryn for the review!
As a bi-racial American, it can be hard to match my skin tone with pre-mixed foundations. Make Up Forever HD has a plethora of shades designed to match most skin tones. Also because the foundation is so light, it is easy to mix two different shades to match your skin tone perfectly.
Make Up Forever HD is a liquid foundation that comes in a convenient plastic pump bottle. This is important since I am forever knocking the bottles off of the marble vanity. I also like that it is easy to dispense a small amount. I used to use another name brand foundation that you have to pour on the sponge and it is a waste because I was always pouring too much. I also don’t like mess and possible contamination that happens when you have to stick your finger in the bottle.
The foundation has a semi-matte finish that leaves skin looking soft and dewy all day. It is a full coverage foundation that conceals red spots and splotchiness. Furthermore, it does a great job of evening out skin tone.
It does not have the hideous orange undertone that some foundations targeted towards ethnic women have. The Make Up Forever HD foundation doesn’t slide off like some liquid foundations. The foundation does not become cakey or ashy after hours of wear and feels very lightweight on the skin.
Although I purchased make up sponges to use with my foundation, I find that using my fingers to blend provides the best and most natural coverage. The foundation is silicone based so a little goes a long way. For a normal day at work, I only use one small pump. On special occasions, I use two to three pumps.
When blended correctly, this foundation looks flawless in pictures. I have had airbrush make-up applied for weddings and the Make Up Forever HD foundation gives me the same professionally applied make up look in pictures.
I love the Make Up Forever brand and the HD foundation provides excellent coverage for my skin. I highly recommend it.
