Eureka, I've Found It!
on 29 January 2014
I think I've found the perfect daily foundation for my skin. Of course this won't necessarily suit all skin types and as I get older my own skin texture and hydration levels will change but for the last few weeks I've not had to worry about my face matching the grey and dreary weather.
I am quite pale with sensitive, combination skin which is prone to acne rosacea so finding a suitable foundation can be an onerous task. Beauty therapists often try to persuade me to purchase expensive hydrating foundations to give me a "dewy" finish - I end up looking like an oil slick instead. The medium coverage I achieve with this foundation is demi-matte, not too shiny and not too drying either. It is the consistency of whipped cream (funnily enough) and a little goes a long way so this pot will last a long, long time. I like a light dusting of translucent powder on top if I'm using powder blusher but otherwise, for once in my life, I embrace the semi-matteness of it all - very daring after 34 years of being caked in powder!
It is not a very "buildable" foundation in that once you apply it you should quickly blend and not add any more for extra coverage. I like this aspect as it speeds up the whole getting ready process. Natural seems the ideal shade for my pale skin. Highly recommended.
