Let’s talk about foundation for a minute. I think it is one of the most, if not the most important part of your makeup routine to really get right. A bad base can ruin everything! I am continually on the hunt for the perfect foundation, today I’m going to take you all on part of that journey.
But before foundation, I gotta prime! So let’s start off with the Bite Beauty Change Maker Skin Optimizing Primer $38.
There are two different formulas, one for normal to oily, and the one I picked up, normal to dry.
This primer really feels and acts as a moisturizer. I love how moisturizing it feels on the skin. It is meant to neutralize your skin type, while also gripping foundation.
This product also has some wonderful highlighted ingredients:
“Willow Bark (Mattifying Primer): Helps mattify, control shine, and blur the look of pores without stripping skin.
– Hyaluronic Acid Complex (Hydrating Primer): A specialized blend of micronized hyaluronic particles and sodium PCA for enhanced hydration.
– Olive Oil (Hydrating Primer): Helps boost hydration.
– Maqui Berry: An antioxidant-rich ingredient that helps nurture your complexion. ”
Do I think it holds up to these claims? Yes and no. I really do think it neutralized my skin type. It was hydrating, nourishing, and did actually help control shine. However, I really do not think that it helped grip on to my foundation. You will see why in just a moment.
Now, the fun part. The Change Maker Supercharged Micellar Foundation $39.50
I believe there are 32 shades. The best fit for me was the lightest shade L 10. It is described as fair light with neutral under tones.
This foundation is meant to be creamy and long wearing, with buildable medium coverage.
Here are the highlighted ingredients:
“Maqui Berry: Antioxidant-rich and helps nourish your complexion; native to Patagonia, known to be one of the purest environments on earth
Micellar Technology: Inspired by skincare, it gently mimics skin texture for a smooth, non-cakey look”
Here is my face after the initial application. I find that this foundation applies best with your finger tips or a brush. I noticed that a sponge soaked up a lot of the product and make application a bit spotty.
Upon initial application I thought the base looked beautiful! I definitely believe that the coverage is buildable, but I wouldn’t say it builds to full coverage.
Here is 4 hours into wearing the foundation. I was spending time with my boyfriend’s family inside and out of the heat. You can see there is some break up around my nose and cheeks, and you can see some of my weird freckles.
Here is the wear after 6 hours, coverage is essentially gone from my t zone. Please note! I did wear a mask for about 30 minutes, so that does have an affect on the foundation.
Now, these pictures were taken the second time I tried this foundation. The first time I wore it, we had gone to the mall, then a bar, and the break down from heat and wearing a mask was horrible. I did not think that was a fair testing environment.
Overall, I thought this foundation was a great match and very comfortable. However, I do not think it is the right foundation to wear in the summer in warmer climates, or if you are going to be moving around a lot. I found that it noticeably sunk into my pores, and broke up quickly.
Before I give this foundation to one of my sisters to try, I want to try it again once it cools down here.
As of right now, I am not a fan of this foundation, but you never know. The climate could change my thoughts completely! At first I loved the Huda Beauty foundation, but now I hate it and gave it away. So, we will see what the future holds for the change maker foundation and I.
