Makeup Wars Best Foundation of 2014!

This week our Makeup Wars bloggers are discussing their best foundation. It’s impossible to choose just one–I chose three BUT in three different categories so I figure I’m safe. Don’t tell on me!

Ideal for over 40 gals:

 Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide ($48)

Debuting in 2014, Laura Mercier has created a winner! This is light as water, is highly pigmented, blurs imperfections and wears all day. The formula is similar to bareMinerals Bareskin foundation, however Laura’s version is what I wanted Bareskin to be. It’s the perfect solution if you are searching for a light yet effective foundation that will achieve the “no makeup” look.  I love the satin finish and the feel of not wearing foundation!  This foundation is ideal for us over 40 gals who are tired of thick, heavy foundations. Read my full review here.   

The Best Foundation for Summer:

For a fabulous summer foundation, I love IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging CC Cream with SPF 50+ (reviewed here) is a full-coverage color-correcting cream, anti-aging serum, and broad-spectrum SPF 50+ all in one! It’s a dream come true for us over 40 gals. It’s got great coverage, is highly moisturizing, blends well, is available in a variety of shades and looks completely natural!

Best Drugstore Foundation:

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20 ($12.49) I had never tried this thinking it was for young skin based on the fact that Hayden Panettiere promotes it and she’s my daughters age. Wow, I truly didn’t know what I was missing! Healthy Skin is remarkably similar to NARS Sheer Glow but with more coverage making it perfect for us over 40 beauties! It spreads easily, does not settle into lines or look cakey and lasts all day! Available in 12 shades.

Let’s see what our Makeup Wars bloggers chose–I’m hoping to get some great recommendations!
