As the weather warms up, it's the PERFECT time to think about your foundation. Why? You'll have different needs in warmer weather….plus it's the perfect time to do shade matching and to make sure that your skin tone hasn't changed. As a tired mama, I've test driven every foundation (and concealer) under the sun hoping to pep up my skin. These? My absolute favorites!
MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation : This is my year round staple. It covers imperfections beautifully, blends easily, and looks GREAT in photographs thanks to the HD technology Make Up For Ever developed. It absorbs well, and doesn't feel heavy or cakey.
BareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation: If your skin is naturally oily, or you'll be in heat and humidity….a powder foundation is your best bet! I've been using Bareminerals' version for years, and love it. It works just as well on my dry skin as it does on oily skin. It creates a smooth matte finish, and can be layered for varying levels of coverage.
Benefit Cosmetics Play Sticks: Looking for a five minute face? Then this stick foundation is for you….it's a concealer and foundation in one! When I'm in a rush, this long lasting foundation is my go to. It works, it covers, and it lasts ALL day!
Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer : This tinted moisturizer is perfect for casual days. Park trips? Playdates? When I'm looking for a lighter coverage, this is ideal. And bonus? It has sunscreen included!
Bare Minerals BareSkin Pure Serum Foundation : Looking for a little glow? Then this is for YOU! Bareskin is perfect for dry skin…..it adds extra moisture, and a glow to your bare face. I love how light it is, providing JUST enough coverage. And for a little more coverage? I use the BareMinerals powder foundation in my t-zone on top of this!
