A lot of people underestimate how hard it is to find a foundation. It's like a second skin so you want it to feel like a part of you and finding that perfect facial companion is trickier than it seems. Although choosing a foundation is totally based on personal preference I've gathered a few of my favorite standouts to help you navigate through the endless choices of a woman's go to cosmetic product:
Ellis Faas Skin Veil Pen has made it through my checklist for numerous reasons. For one, the silky smooth, barely there formulation covers up flaws and leaves skin looking incredibly radiant. Secondly, for those who don't want to use fingers or a sponge, the application of this product is made so efficient due to it's applicator brush that allows you to get in between nostril curves and facial contours. Minerals diffuse light across the skin's surface reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
Although I'm not technically able to call it a foundation, Jouer's Luminizing Moisture Tint is more like a tinted moisturizer but gives great coverage if you have unproblematic skin. It evens out uneven skin tone and also camouflages fine lines with light diffusing ingredients while also protecting from harmful UV rays with SPF 20!
Christened the makeup foundation for dummies, By Terry's Light Expert Perfecting Foundation Brush is an anti-blemish, anti-shadow and anti-dullness formulation that instantly illuminates the face. It's featherweight texture can be deceiving because it actually gives deceptive coverage and hyaluronic acid microspheres work to plump up wrinkles for an instant lifting effect.
For those who like a thicker coverage, a staff favorite as well as Kim Kardashian's is Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer. Housed in a tiny jar, we prefer to apply this product with fingertips rather than a sponge due to it's thicker consistency and ability to warm it up by massaging it through your fingertips for better application. It can be used as a concealer or for the perfect highlighter as well! One thing you can rely on is complete coverage at all times. Our suggestion is that less is more with the Sensual Skin Enhancer. Apply to a freshly moisturized and primed skin and apply more as desired.
