Foundation You Need to Know About

A few years ago my daughter and I went to a makeup application lesson in Dallas. We thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and purchased several of the products used. We both fell in love with the foundation that was used. Fast forward a few years… Because I have so many foundations one often slips out of sight in my makeup drawers and usually conveniently reappears. I recently shopped through my own makeup stash and pulled out the Jennifer Bradley 4 in 1 Camera Ready Foundation.

Jennifer Bradley 4 in 1 camera ready foundation

The Camera Ready Foundation was created by Jennifer Bradley who is a professional makeup artist. This product is a foundation and concealer in one. It’s good for skin of all ages. My daughters started using it in their teens and I started using it in my 40’s.

The foundation is available in 10 shades.  The cost is $48.  There is no weight measurement on the packaging nor on the website.  There’s a lot of product for the price.  The foundation should last at least 6 months with daily use.  However, my girls have been able to get it to last a year!  They’ve both repurchased the foundation.  That says a lot to me about how good it is.

When using this foundation, it’s good to know that a little bit goes a long way.  I prefer using my Sigma Round Top Kabuki brush for application.  I simply tap the brush into the product.  I dab it on my face and buff it in using circular motions.  If I want more coverage in areas, then I add a bit more product.  There’s no need to use a separate concealer.  This foundation is a multi-tasker!

The website describes the foundation as:

  • a dewy powder finish
  • sun protection
  • incredible coverage
  • a weightless, undetectable finish.
  • improves skin texture
  • gives your skin a radiant glow
  • takes the redness out of skin immediately
  • oil free
  • doesn’t ever cause breakouts

Ingredients: Propylene Glycol Dicaprate/Dicaprylate C12-15Alkyl Benzoate, Myristyl Lactate, Sorbitan, Sesqiolate, Petrolatum, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl) Acetate, Dimethicone, Silica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides

As you can tell from my post, I’m a huge fan of this foundation and give it my full endorsement.  I recommend it for women of all ages.  It’s lightweight and long-wearing, which is especially nice in the heat and humidity of spring and summer.  It gives me whatever coverage I desire from sheer to full coverage.  I wear shade 5 and it’s a perfect match.  You can call or email Jennifer Bradley and she will usually be able to recommend the shade that will work for you.  Rumor has it that she’s pretty accurate at it.

You can purchase this product and all of the makeup and skincare in her line directly from the Jennifer Bradley website.  I’m not getting paid to endorse this line.  This is not a sponsored post.  I just love this product and I want all of you to know about it too!

Let me know what you think of the Jennifer Bradley 4-in-1 Camera Ready Foundation in the comments below!  Does it sound like something you’d like to use?

    Nice! What shade do you wear in other foundations? I see what you wear in Hourglass…what about MAC, Estee Lauder, etc? Thanks.

      In MAC I usually wear NW25 (but I need to try a slightly lighter shade these days), In Estee Lauder I wear 2N2 I believe (Fresco). Let me know if you want to know about any others. Stacie xo

        Thanks! I also reached out to Jennifer, & she quickly responded. Sent her a couple of pics, & she recommended #5.

      Yes, they could use a website upgrade to help with that. If you send Jennifer a few pics she will tell you your shade. I’m guessing that you’re a 3 or 4. Stacie xo

    Since the product is a cream foundation, does it ever come out thick or cakey?

    I’ll have to look into this. Always looking for a good foundation, especially living in Florida with the heat and humidity. And I’ll be outside more so I’m glad this has a sunscreen in it.

      I think you’d really like this one. Jennifer is based down in Ft Lauderdale, so if you’re ever in the area you could go by her new studio that she’s opening. Stacie xo

    I always look for lightweight foundation with my acne-prone skin and this one looks like a good one to try!

    I LOVE JENNIFER BRADLEY’S makeup and skincare line. I too use the 4-1-camera ready foundation #5.. it’s a dream come true. Been a fan for several years. A little does go along way. I like to do a quick makeup job in the am and love that this product does it it. In fact she just released a new water proof version.. that’s perfect for FLORIDA summers. Jennifer’s products are amazing but the customer service is beyond perfect. Try it out, nothing to lose and a perfect look to gain.

      I’m so happy to hear that you love the foundation as much as I do. Thanks for mentioning the new one she just came out with. People are always asking me for foundation recommendations for hot and humid climates. Stacie xo

    Hi everyone!

    If any of you need help choosing a foundation, it is really easy for me to match you from anywhere. The majority of my clients are not in FL, but I consult and foundation match for people remotely every day with guaranteed results.

    You can never judge a foundation by looking at color swatches, and I would love to help you.

    simply email me at jenniferbradleyco@gmail. com

    Or message me on FB

    I always do specials, as Stacie was saying, and I want to thank you, Stacie again for your wonderful blog post. Really appreciate it.
