While finding a good foundation can sometimes be difficult, you can bank on the most beautiful people in the world to have theirs sussed, and top models of colour, Jourdan Dunn, Imaan Hammam, Riley Montana, Binx Walton, Mariana Santana, Brazilian model Laís Ribeiro and Chinese stunner Fei Fei Sun, have been sharing their favourites with Vogue.
Revealing the brands they use and why they love them, the models give us insight into exactly what’s inside their makeup bags and also a chance to copy their purchases and attempt to steal their beauty…
Read what should be on your shopping list, below;
“Working with amazing makeup artists, you find out so much about how to apply primer and foundation. I have two different tones within my skin— yellow and red —so I have to go with two different shades of foundation to match my complexion. Maybelline makes a good one called Fit Me ($8), and both the regular and shine-free formulas are great.”
“On a Tom Ford fragrance shoot, I learned so much from Charlotte Tilbury about contouring and finding the right shade. The Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick ($78) is my favorite. His products make your skin feel so silky!”
“The natural oils in my skin are already enough, so makeup can look a bit too shiny on me. Le Weekend de Chanel moisturizer ($115) is lovely as a base. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation ($27) is good for me, and I like Bobbi Brown concealer ($34).”
“I find myself scared to try foundations because I don’t want to be that woman with her neck one color and her face another, so I go for moisturizers with coconut oil or ones with SPF. My favourite is Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer in Espresso ($38).”
Fei Fei Sun
“I usually ask makeup artists on set for recommendations before I try foundations or tinted moisturizers. Right now, I’m using Bioderma Light Cream (£14.30), MAC Face and Body Foundation in #C1 and #C2 ($35 each), and YSL Touche Éclat ($41).”
“Depending on how much sun I’ve had, I’ll use NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer ($42) in either the Cuba or St. Moritz shades, or I blend them together. It’s sheer, smells amazing and adds an extra healthy glow to skin. That, along with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in a mixture of Custard and Caramel ($29), is the perfect combination.”
Go ahead and give some of their faves a try.
