Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in Y445

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in 173 = Y445

Happy Fall! At this point, I feel it no longer makes a difference whether or not I apologize for my absences. So I’ll get on with it. Recently I was given the opportunity to review Make Up For Ever’s newly reformulated HD Foundation. The new formula has been made specifically for 4K technology. Simply put, it has been formulated to appear that much more flawless on high definition cameras (yes, selfies included). Colour Reference: MAC NC45, L’Oreal True Match C6/Soft Sable, NARS: Macao (both Luminous Weightless and Sheer Glow), BECCA: Tobacco, previous MUFE formula: 173

The foundation comes with a little sample of their nourishing primer, which I quite liked because then you get to decide which of their primers will pair best with this foundation for your skin specifically. I had also tried this with their smoothing primer; in both cases, the foundation worked well. However, at first I was using too much product and that caused it too look slightly off on my skin. Sidenote: The shade Y455 is fairly similar. The ‘Y’ in the alphanumeric shade name stands for yellow, as in, yellow undertone.

Favourite Fall Items

After realising on the first 2 tries that 3-4 pumps was a bit too much product, I decided to go down to 2 pumps. That’s the magic number! With 2 pumps I got better coverage and it matched my skin perfectly. I think what makes the major difference with this foundation is the tool being used. Using my BeautyBlender sheered it out too much and this is why I had ended up using 4 pumps. Whereas using my fingers, the Real Techniques stipple brush or their buffing brush made it look flawless and natural, while still giving full coverage with only 2 pumps. For added coverage I used a light layer of Pro Finish in 168 Golden Camel and simply set with some Primer Water. This foundation did not cling to dry patches, nor did it have me looking oily throughout the day; appeared the same in pictures, no dry patches and no chicken nugget faces over here. Would I purchase this? Yes. Because once you’ve figured out how to make this work for you, it’s flawless.

  1. I’m loving this post. Lately I’ve been noticing, as well as been told, that my foundation is a little, not the same as my skin tone. So I like the way you explained different techniques you used to put it on to make it look better.

    • Thanks girl! If you’re foundation is a little too light I find that can easily be balanced out with just a little bronzer around the temples — the Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Fusion is good and so are the Mineralize Skinfinish ones by MAC 🙂
      But yeah for this Ultra HD I’d say my fave is definitely when I apply it to get full coverage.
