Top Clean Beauty Foundations

Welcome back to another installment of my clean beauty series where I talk about all my favourite clean beauty skincare and makeup products. If you missed some of them, my most recent ones are lipsticks and sunscreens. For this installment, I am going to be sharing with you all my clean beauty foundations.

Before I get started, I want to tell you that I prefer using my hands to apply my foundation. I prefer a natural look but most of these have very buildable coverage from sheer to full coverage.

Beautycounter Hydrating Tint Skin

Beautycounter Hydrating Tint Skin is light to medium coverage and blends into the skin seamlessly. Even with medium coverage, your foundation still looks natural. It also contains sodium hyaluronate which acts like a moisture magnet for smoother looking skin and also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals

This mineral liquid foundation has a built in serum that provides a sheer to medium coverage. It provides hydration and also helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The one issue I do have is that there isn’t as much product as the others and doesn’t last that long.

Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation

Before I tried Kjaer Weis, I had heard so many amazing things about it. Also, I love the packaging because it’s refillable. And I am all about reusing over recycling. This foundation is sheer to full coverage. The brand advises that your skin is well moisturized and suggest using an oil right before applying but it is not necessary. With the foundation being sheer to full coverage, you can use it as a concealer as well. For sheer coverage, you apply it with your hands and for full coverage, you use a brush. I first apply it with my hands and then I use my concealer brush and use it as concealer under my eyes and other places on my face I might need it.

Ilia True Skin Foundation

This foundation is light to medium coverage while leaving a velvety finish. It has a botanicals that help soothe irritations and redness while plumping fine lines and blur imperfections.

Clove + Hallow Liquid Skin Tint

This foundation is light to medium/full coverage, depending on how you apply and how many layers you add. Unlike all of the other ones above, this is a demi matte finish. It also doesn’t cake or crease into the skin.

Another brand that I’ve heard great things about and want to try is Vapour. When I do try it and happen to love it, this post will be updated.
