THE ULTIMATE LOW COST FOUNDATION
Monday, 6 April 2015 | Admin
No matter where I am or who I strike up a conversation with, as soon as they find out that I am a make up artist and have been for over a decade (oh, I suddenly feel very old now) the question that I get asked the most is, “what is the best foundation out there?” and “do I need to buy expensive foundation?”. Well the bad news is that I don’t have an ultimate answer for you the best foundation out there, as foundations vary depending on you and your skin. What you need to do is ask yourself some questions about what you want your foundation to do to your skin; what coverage do you like? Heavy, medium or light. What type of skin do you have? Dry, oily, mature, combination. What type of finish do you want? Long lasting, matte, dewy, satin. So as you can imagine, with all of these questions there is o one ultimate best foundation answer for you! I do have really good news, there are so many amazing foundation out there to suit you and your skin. If you are budget conscious about your foundation then you do not need to spend a small fortune then here is round of of teh best lost cost foundations for different skin types and coverages!
Rimmel, Wake Me Up Foundation, €10.99
This foundation is perfect for dry or dehydrated skin that needs extra moisture and glow. The Rimmels Wake Me Up Foundation instantly reawakens skin with a healthy, radiant glow and minimizes premature skin ageing with its SPF of 15. Light to Medium coverage.
Sleek, Creme to Powder Foundation, €9.99
If you are after full coverage that so doesn’t move here is your foundation. This coverage is heavy but perfect for skin that has some shine or oil. Applu with a brush or a damp sponge. DO NOT use a dry sponge, it goes on woefully!
L’Oreal True Match Foundation, €14.99
This has been around so long that it is a classic at this stage, with medium, long lasting coverage it is no wonder it has stayed one of our favourite for so long! Perfect for all skin types and last all day.
Sleek, Bare Skin Foundation, €9.99
This lightweight formula, give a dewy glow with minimal coverage, it suits anyone that wants some coverage but not cakey, heavy coverage.
NYX, Stay Matte Not Flat Foundation, €10.99
This is an excellent choice for anyone that has some oil or shine in their skin. This NYX Stay Matte Not Flat banishes shine but doesn’t dry out your skin! The coverage is medium.
Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation, €12.99
This whipped, hydrated formula is perfect for anyone wanting a semi matte finish, this won't dry out your skin and it delivers a fresh-looking matte finish with a radiant glow. Apply with a duo fibre/ stipple brush for the best coverage.

Chanel, Nars, Clarins and Benefit – these are just a few of the international cosmetic brands that every Irish woman stockpiles into her beauty bag. Last week, I interviewed Suzie O’Neill, creator of AYU Make Up who illustrated to us that home grown, Irish beauty tools could be manufactured to equally as high a standard as their foreign counterparts so, what about make up itself?

t is, dare I say it officially summer season, which means one thing for us Irish folk; heading off to the airport to hop on a plane to catch some guaranteed actual sunshine, that we just are not likely to get here in Ireland. I personally love getting away but I hate being without all my beauty treats, which for me is make up, body lotions, perfumes, hair products, body mists, tan, mitts an the list goes on and on.

Here at Sculpt I love watching trends, especially make up and beauty trends. I think I have some highlight and strobe running through my veins, I am just attracted to pretty beauty things! You know how it is though, one day something is red hot and you can't get you hands on it then in a flash they aren't quite so hot. Remember sleep in rollers anyone?

Here at Sculpt Cosmetics we love skin care, not just skincare but really good skin care. We love a lot of ranges here at Sculpt Studio but I especially have a little soft spot for Dermalogica. I have used this range since I started out in make up 12 years ago, so I know it pretty well and I know what works for me, but I have lots of clients who have not used it and are a bit scared by the price tag of indulging on yet another skincare range that promises to fix their skin. Dermalogica have the perfect answer - a Skin Kit that contains minis of the best of Dermalogica according to your skin types, for a much more affordable price tag of €33.20!
