I love foundation. I think I might prefer foundation over mascara….gasp!…..no, I take it back. Not true. But close.
If you are like me and have “dry’ish” skin and are looking for a good foundation, allow me to introduce a few suggestions that provide a little more moisture and don’t cake or flake. I will start from the least amount of coverage to the most.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer ($49.00 at Sephora)
This is great for the no makeup makeup look, the I just rolled out of bed this way but look miraculously more polished than one might think look and the Sunday look if you are me. Hydrating light coverage, this is a great staple. Let’s call this the casual foundation or the low commitment foundation. Good stuff.
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation ($57.00 at Sephora)
This is a step up in terms of coverage. Don’t let the glow fool you though – it’s very subtle. Think Natural, not matte but not dewy. This foundation is smooth to apply and lasts the whole day.
Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint ($64.00 at Sephora)
Bit of a mouthful this one. Its predecessor was the Illusion tinted moisturizer. This is a full coverage foundation. Fairly thick to apply but has a luminescent quality to it. Tip – If you like the formula but wish a lighter application mix in a little moisturizer.
As with any foundation, I recommend asking for a sample before purchasing. Use the sample for a couple of days to ensure the colour and formula are a perfect fit.
