made up with mer : foundations for dry skin …

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.

Happy shopping!
