Smashbox: Studio Skin Full Coverage Foundation

AD - This post was written in collaboratiob with

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I got married recently. For that occasion I have decided to do my own makeup rather than hiring a makeup artist for myself (if Kate Middleton could do her own wedding makeup, so can I). I do not regret my decision as I think it turned out well but it was challenging to pick the right products. Since I was getting married in a different country with a different climate, I had to gamble. Luckily, it all paid off.  

The biggest challenge was what foundation to use. I needed something that stays on the whole day looking perfect but also not being too heavy and making me look like I am wearing a mask. Moreover, waterproof makeup is a must at a wedding. 

Shade: 1.15 Fair light Warm & Peachy

Using the Studio Skin Full Coverage foundation from Smashbox was very much last minute decision. I used it the day before and realised this foundation covers everything, stays on perfectly the whole day and unlike Estée Lauder’s double wear foundation, it did not dry my skin out and did not feel too heavy. 

The foundation is very pigmented and only a few drops were needed to cover my whole face. And when I say cover, I mean really cover. It offers a matte finish but I can achieve a natural finish when using a glowy primer underneath. I usually skip a concealer when wearing this foundation as it is not really needed. Not only that, the foundation survived all my tears (it was very emotional day lol). 

The foundation comes in 30 ml tube and as I said, a little goes a long way. You can pick from 40 shades. 

I think I will bow be always fond of this foundation. After all, it ensured my wedding day makeup looked flawless the whole day. This was my first serous experience with Smashbox and I am very impressed. I cannot believe I am going to say this, but I would pick this foundation over the Double Wear in a heartbeat. And that's a big statement, so well done Smasbox!
