Make Up Forever Foundation Review

 MakeUp Forever: Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation

I've finally found my holy grail foundation with the Make Up Forever: Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation!   I have tried so many different foundations from  Becca to MAC and everything in between and still haven'tfound anything that compares to this.   I have super oily and acne-prone skin. I have found that this foundation looks very good on my skin type.    

Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation

First things first, when applying any kind of makeup be sure to start with a freshly washed and moisturized face (very important!) I shake the foundation bottle up (with the cap on, of course :) to make sure that all of the ingredients are properly  mixed first.  I then put a smalldrop on the back of my hand and I used my index, middle and ring fingers to blend the foundation on my face.  The foundation goes on very sheer but you will see the coverage building slowly.  When applied with my fingers, I am able to achieve a natural daytime look.

This foundation is amazing!  You can easily wear it during the daytime or build it up  for a nice, flawless night time look. When I want more coverage, I use a  foundation brush(which is always Brush #190 by MAC),  to apply the foundation.  One of the things I love most about this foundation is that although it is liquid, the foundation never looks heavy on my skin.  Additionally, they have such an array of colors from the lightest porcelain shades to the deepest mahogany!

Regardless of the application method, my foundation stays in place and remains matte throughout the day.  This product is transfer-resistant, water-resistantand oil-free so I'm able to wear it year round with no problem (Which is great for the Vegas heat!). I like to finish my look off with MUFE HD Microfinish Powder for an airbrushed, matte, radiant finish. If you've been looking for the perfect foundation for your oily skin, look no further!
