Hi guys! I had some very surprising free time tonight so I decided to do a review! I've had these photos stored up for the longest time now and it's high time I get writing!
This foundation is definitely one of my go-to foundations for going out. Although it doesn't give as full coverage as the Shu Uemura one (in my opinion), it takes the most beautiful photos and your skin just looks like a porcelain doll. As you can see in the below photos, I do NOT have perfect skin, I break out a long during THAT time of the month and I hate it but it's just something that I have to live with! It has gotten better over time, before I use to full of break out but now I have 2-3 maybe, just around my chin area. And.... I am totally going off topic, typical A.D.D me! I think the photos will actually speak for themselves and I do apologise for having different lighting in the photos, I know it makes it more difficult to see but the important part is the end result and what you can achieve with this foundation!

What Make Up Forever says about this product (taken from Make Up For Ever website):
"The MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Complexion products use innovative formulas to create a new generation of make up which is both invisible on HD cameras and to the naked eye. The HD Foundation is an oil-free medium-to-full coverage liquid foundation which covers skin imperfections, while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life. Its extremely fine texture is supple and easy to apply. Enriched with moisturizing agents, it leaves the skin soft and radiant. It is available in a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones. "

This will forever be one of my all time favourite foundations just for the fact that it looks so gorgeous in photos. It covers well, yet still lets my natural skin peek through and is very comfortable on my dry/combination skin. I think it is a must have if you are working in the make up industry just for the pure fact it looks so gorgeous in photographs and on film.
