Face Atelier Ultra Foundation

Sigma Round Top Synthetic Kabuki F82, Face Atelier Ultra Foundation #1 Porcelain

Despite owning more foundations than most would think humanly possible, I've recently found myself in a bit of a rut, not having a favorite that I automatically go to everyday. I love my Estée Lauder Double Wear, but its too heavy for a long day at work. Illamasqua Skin Base gives such a beautiful finish but mine's completely the wrong colour, and my most recent purchase, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua just wasn't cutting it with the coverage. So one night on a whim I decided to order Face Atelier Ultra, a foundation thats been sitting in the back of my mind for well over a year now.

I think Face Atelier is a pretty unheard of brand. I only managed to find it online which isn't exactly the best place to match yourself to the perfect colour. Luckily being white as a ghost I always need the palest shade so it was an easy choice. The foundation itself is an absolute dream. To me it's the perfect combination of all the greats out there. It's lightweight but full coverage, and dewey but long lasting. It really does feel just like skin.

I also ordered the Sigma round topped kabuki which has now become my favorite foundation brush. I've used flat top brushes in the past, which I still love, but this rounded one makes it a lot easier to get into all the little nooks of the face, whilst still giving a completely flawless finish.

I think the true test of how much I like this foundation is the fact that I haven't strayed away from using it for over two weeks now, something pretty much unheard of! Its a little bit pricy at £32, but you can order samples from the website for next to nothing, which I really recommend!
