Who else is looking for a foundation that really makes your skin look radiant while giving you decent coverage? Look no further - I’ve found a product for under $20 that addresses everything you’re after.
It’s Designer Brands Hydrating Luminous Foundation, and I’m not surprised it’s getting rave reviews from some of our favourite YouTube stars.
Why I'm Loving It:- It's $19.99 (who wouldn't try this foundation at that price?!)
Gives your skin a naturally radiant, hydrated finish
This foundation has a buildable gel-like formula which blends with ease
Allows you to achieve medium to full coverage without looking cakey or heavy
It’s enriched with soothing & hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera & Green Tea
Uses light reflecting pigments to illuminate your complexion
Who's It For?I'd say this foundation is suitable for all skin types, in particular normal-dry skin, as the dewy formula will not clog pores or cling to dry areas.
For the oily skin types out there, this one on it’s own might be a little too ‘dewy’ for your liking, but it can certainly be powdered down to avoid excess oiliness throughout the day.
I have relatively normal skin, so this foundation works really well for me. I give the coverage, finish and lasting power five stars. And, if you’re looking for a vegan friendly, cruelty-free option, Designer Brands have got that covered too.
Application Tips:I always recommend applying your foundation to the centre of your face and blending outwards. You can either use a buffing brush or blending sponge to buff the product into the skin, and simply build up until you've achieved your desired coverage. Designer Brands Rise and Prime Luminescent Primer works a treat underneath this formula if you want a super glowy, radiant finish.
What's Everyone Saying About It?I asked Vanessa, our resident makeup artist, what her verdict was on Designer Brands Hydrating Luminous Foundation.
“This foundation is Designer Brands best kept secret. This foundation is a liquid formula which would be perfect for someone who is looking for a medium coverage, with either dry or normal skin. It leaves your skin looking flawless, without any adding any additional products. It has a great longevity compared to other hydrating foundations I’ve used. It acts like a second skin and will leave you with a glow all day!”
★★★★★ Love this foundation! - Emma"This foundation is beautiful. It blends nicely and leaves my skin with a beautiful glow. It wears well and doesn't look cakey. Coverage is medium but buildable. I usually wear a NW25 in MAC and took a guess and bought Nude Beige and it's great, probably even better for my colour. It will be perfect in summer and I blend in well while I'm paler. A great foundation for the price."
★★★★★ Amazing - Jessica"I've tried so many foundations and I've never been 100% happy till I tried this! I get so many comments on how good my skin is looking and what am I using! This is by far the best foundation I have come across and the price is just amazing!"
★★★★★ Glowy goodness - Madeleine"So impressed with this foundation for the price! I have normal to oily skin but I didn’t let that scare me off from a dewy finish foundation, I do set it down with pressed powder but it doesn’t lose its glow. Medium buildable coverage and lasts on my skins for ten hours with some breaking down around my t-zone area, but doesn’t bother me much for the price. Lovely fresh scent and blends easily. So worth it to try!"
