The Pick Of The Best Foundations For Asian Brides

Top make-up artist Preeti Chotai knows all about the best foundations for asian brides.

I am delighted to share with you these expert tips by make-up artist Preeti Chotai who has own blog, Fabublush.

Preeti specialises in make-up for Asian brides, so who better than her to ask about the best foundations for asian brides. ‘Every bride wants even flawless skin that photographs amazingly on her big day,’ she explains. ‘I am sure you want to look as perfect as possible without having to touch up too often. A good foundation will even out skin tone, smooth imperfections and last from the ceremony to the dance floor. I have tried and found the best formulas in the industry in my 10 years as a bridal makeup artist. There are so many amazing foundations on the market but not all brands cater to all skin tones. These are my pick of the best foundations for Asian brides.

The pick of the best foundations for Asian Brides

1. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

This is probably one of the most commonly used foundations in bridal makeup. It has no SPF and therefore no flashback, it blends seamlessly onto the skin and is long wearing. Despite its name. It is not too ‘glowy’ so there is no risk of looking too shiny. Having said that, the satin finish still gives the skin a natural looking radiance and leaves it looking flawless. It’s hydrating properties can leave the skin looking beautifully plump but can be a downside for oily skins. For that reason, I tend to only use this on brides with dry-normal skin types. You can build the coverage up from medium to full coverage. The shades and undertones available are spot on for Asian skin tones making it a perfect contender. 

2. YSL’s Touche Eclat Foundation

This is a personal favourite foundation of mine. It’s slightly more illuminating than the above and definitely more sheer(although you can still build it up). This is the perfect foundation for a ‘your skin but better’ look and there are lots of shades and undertones to choose from. Completely weightless on the skin and a dream to blend, this foundation is faultless. No SPF guarantees no flash back and its illuminating properties give you flawless, radiant looking skin both in person and in pictures. 

3. MAC Face and Body Foundation

This is the most lightweight foundation on this list. I use this on the brides who usually wear no/very little makeup and are worried about looking ‘cakey’. It is very versatile and is perfect if you are looking for a foundation from a very sheer coverage to a medium coverage It glides beautifully over the skin, giving a sheer natural satin finish that is long wearing. Available in a wide range of shades, this is a classic in the list of the best foundations for Asian brides. As the name suggests, it can also be used on the body to ensure continuity in skin tone but also to cover any imperfections. This is another reason why it should be a staple in every bridal makeup artist’s kit.   

4. Armani Silk Luminous Foundation

This is another gorgeously smooth and weightless foundation. Inspired by charmeuse silk, it flows and blends as smoothly as you could wish for. It sculpts, smoothes and blurs for a glowing complexion. It photographs like a dream and is unbelievably comfortable. It is no wonder that it has a big celebrity following. Available in 24 different shades, it works well for all skin types and colours. 

5. Revlon Colour Stay Foundation

No matter your skin type or colour, Revlon Colour Stay has you covered. Incredibly long wearing, this foundation has amazing qualities for the price point. The velvety matte finish has a lovely, natural glow to it whilst the oil free formula helps avoid excessive shine. It does has an SPF of 6 but it is low enough not to interfere with photography making it an ideal wedding day foundation. 

There are so many great foundations on the market now that cater for Asian skin tones but these are just a few of my favourite. The most important thing is to use a foundation that is the right formula for your skin type and a good match to your skin tone. Above all, you should feel comfortable and beautiful on your big day!
