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.

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick Swatches

Make Up For Ever is one of my all time favorite makeup brands.  The quality of their products is always outstanding, and their aqua products get super long wear. I had not yet tried their Rouge artist Natural Lipstick, so I was happy to receive one to test.

The lipstick I got was quite sheer. But it gave off a hint of pretty color and wore very well. It stayed on and felt comfortable and moisturizing.  Make Up for Ever advertises this as something that provides a pop of color for those who are color shy. Here is swatch of Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Lipstick in Iridescent Strawberry. I really d love this shade. It is very versatile.

Best Of Make Up For Ever Kit Review

Make Up For Ever is one of my favorite brands overall. Their aqua eyes liners are simply incredible (see aqua eyes swatches at Beauty and Fashion Tech), and both their liquid and powder high definition foundations are my regular daily use foundations. Make Up For Ever also makes good primers and lip products. A good way to test them out is through the Best of Make Up For Ever Kit at Sephora.

Best of Make Up For Ever Kit

The kit contains the following products:

High Definition Microfinish Powder: A wonderful finish powder.

Aqua Cream in 13 Warm Beige (champagne shimmer): A beautiful shimmer highlighting cream that is great as a pretty overall shimmer eye shade or as an eye highlighting cream (which is how I use it).

Travel Aqua Eyes in Mat Black 0L (black): I love aqua eyes. The liners are seriously waterproof, glide on easily, and wear all day and evening.

Lab Shine Lip Gloss in Star Collection – S4 (pearly pink beige): A pretty pink gloss in a neutral shade that will work for just about anyone.

High Definition Microperfecting Primer: a great overall skin and makeup primer.

Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara: a Good basic black mascara for daily use.

Here are swatches of the the Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Gloss and Aqua Cream.

Overall, I love this kit and highly recommend it.
