Diorskin Forever Foundation

I tend to have a rocky history when it comes to foundations. I have quite dry skin and it seems that no matter what I do, foundations never sit right on my T-zone. Either they stick onto the dry patches I never knew I had or the foundation goes all oily after an hour of wear – despite the fact that I don’t have oily skin. These features of my skin I have learnt over time to combat but certain foundations make it worse than ever. This means that I’m very cautious when buying a new foundation- I never want to spend money on something which will make my skin look bad.

Diorskin Forever Foundation bottle

This is why I was hesitant when trying out the Diorskin Forever Foundation. I was actually gifted this by aunt when she bought a shade too dark for herself. Now, the foundation is actually too dark for my everyday makeup so I would wear this Foundation exclusively when going out. I have to say, I absolutely adore this foundation and it is by far the best I’ve ever worn. Read on for the properties of this foundation.

Description:

Dior’s ultimate skin-perfecting 16-hour foundation that delivers medium coverage and leaves a natural-looking luminous matte finish.  Available in 24 shades for all skin types.

The description of this foundation is definitely true, it’s a very long foundation with a natural yet matte look. The only thing is that the foundation doesn’t have a good range of colour options. Even out of the twenty-four shades available, the range is best for pale toned women. Even the palest shade is too dark for my skin tone.

Dior- A limited range of colours

Makeup Finish:

Diorskin Forever Foundation is formulated to give a perfect, flawless complexion to help minimize the appearance of pores, control shine and blur imperfections for a luminous velvety matte finish that lasts all day.

This comfortable liquid foundation melts into the skin and protects with SPF 35 broad spectrum.

Application Tips:

Start with a clean, moisturized face.

Step 1: Get your skin makeup ready and extend the wear of your foundation with Diorskin Forever and Ever wear makeup primer

Step 2: Apply Diorskin Forever Foundation with a brush, makeup sponge or fingertips

Step 3:  Set complexion with Diorskin Forever & Ever Control Loose Powder by evenly applying the powder over the entire face with a kabuki brush to perfect and set the foundation.

Formula:

Diorskin Forever Foundation helps control shine and deliver perfect complexion correction with a combination of mattifying and blurring powders. It veils the skin in a flexible, comfortable formula that holds the foundation in place all day. Like a stretchy mesh built into the formula, it sets the texture and pigments, leaving skin looking flawless and feeling comfortable.

Diorskin Forever Foundation is also formulated with skincare technologies that help to improve the look of pores and refine the skin’s texture over time.

My Review:

Overall I love this foundation. I don’t usually go for matte finish Foundations due to my dry skin but this one is perfect for my skin. It leaves my skin with a great finish without making it look terrible, which is always important when going out. The long wearing nature of the foundation is also amazing as I tend to enjoy going out at 7pm and still having a flawless face at 3am. It blurs imperfections and covers my pores brilliantly like no other foundation ever has before. It is very easy to blend into my skin as well. I have never had any problems with this foundation as it’s a great product.

The coverage is medium but can be built up to full coverage if that is the finish which you’d be interested in. This foundation is very expensive at €50.50 but I tend to find it is very worth it and I’m currently thinking about repurchasing it again as I have recently run out of it. It is non-greasy and looks amazing on all skin types. I had my bottle of Diorskin for around a year before I ran out of it so it definitely lasts a long time.

You can buy this foundation Here for €50.50.

My makeup routine for school

Usually when it comes to school, I couldn’t be bothered to wear any makeup, but sometimes, I wake up inspired to make myself look better than I do usually do in school.

Most of the time though, I prefer to sleep for an extra half an hour. The trouble with my school – and many other schools – is that there is a strict policy regarding makeup. That means I have to wear it very subtly but still make myself look as good as possible. It can feel like a daunting task and it often puts me off even bothering to do anything with makeup in the morning.

To start my makeup routine, I cleanse, tone and moisture my face as I do everyday anyway. I like to look after my skin when I remember to, that is. The cleanser I use is the Seaweed Purifying facial cleanser by the body shop and is well worth the money. My toner which I am using at the moment is the Refreshing Toner by Garnier. My moisturizer cream is by soap and glory and is called The Fab Pore. These three products are great and I’d recommend them for anyone looking for new skin products.

Then I set my primer. The Primer that I use would the Porefessional by Benefit which helps cover large pores. As a person who has quite the large pores, this product really helps me not be insecure about how my pores look. As for the priming element of this primer, I find that it helps make my foundation last for a couple of hours longer than what it would without the primer. The Porefessional is very easy to apply and feels like silk on the skin. Some would see it as very expensive, which it is but I think that it is worth the price since you are paying for a product that works.

After having put my primer on, I then get a bit of my favourite foundation, which is Revlon Colorstay in the shade 110 ivory. I don’t use much of this and using a brush by Real Techinques, I apply the product on my t-zone and blend in it using a beauty blender. After that I apply my Stay Matte pressed powder by Rimmel which is in the shade of 002 pink blossom.  Once again, I apply this product using a real techniques brush that I got in a gift set.

Next, its time to bronze my cheeks. Using my Hoola bronzer by Benefit cosmetics, I sweep a bit of this onto both cheekbones, to give them a bit more definition. I am very careful with how much I apply, because I want it to look natural, and not look fake. Then for my blush I apply the Danedelion blush which is also made by benefit. I have an obsession with benefit products and can not refrain from purchasing their products. The cute packaging just lures me in. Now that my face is done, I start to work on my eyes.

Now my eye makeup, is very simple when it comes to school, I don’t like having to go too much trouble so to get a nice but easy look, I use the Naked Basics palette to achieve it. I will be posting a proper review of this palette later on this week so I won’t be going on too much about  the product.

For my look, I only use four out of the six colours. For the whole eyelid, I fill it in with the colour Foxy. I don’t use a primer for my eyes in this case. Then for my outer lid, I apply the W.O.S shade to highlight the outer corner in a subtle way. I then apply the lightest of the three darker shades and apply it in the crease to create shadows. After all of this, I apply the only shimmer shade, venus to the brow bone and to the inner corner of my eyes. Once I have my eye-shadow done, I apply one coat of my favourite mascara, They’re Real by Benefit (again) and off I go to school for the day. This is my perfect look for school !!
