Do you ever find that when the weather warms up your foundation starts to look cakey and overdone?
Now that summer is here it’s time to change up your make up wardrobe. This is the time of the year when we really want our skin to look fresh and dewy, clean and healthy. Traditional foundations start to sweat and melt, and really don’t look good after an hour or so at a picnic in the park. (or any other outdoor pursuit!)
I’m sure you’re all being beaten half to death with sales pitches for tinted moisturizers right now. In theory I think they’re great, but in reality I find they don’t give enough coverage, so skin looks blotchy, they move unevenly on the skin as the day wears on, leaving you looking patchy, your other color products don’t want to stay on them, and if you are anywhere near a combination skin or slightly oily skin your skin winds up looking gooey.
Hardly what I’d call fabulous…
One of the best kept secrets out there is a magic potion for summer skin.
It’s a product by Make Up Forever called Face and Body.
Face and Body gives gorgeous coverage and keeps the skin looking even and beautiful, without looking made-up or overdone. It is very sheer, but has a divine texture which makes everyone’s complexion look amazing.
It doesn’t require much in the way of powder, so you stay very fresh faced. Blush and eye shadow both hold to it beautifully too.
This is the only foundation that you will ever hear me tell you to apply with your finger tips and not a foundation brush. You take a very small amount and gently move it in small circles, rather than just wiping it over the surface. (when you buy this product have them show you how to apply it).
For years Face and Body has been a pro make up artist product, I’ve used it on endless beach shoots, celebrity appearances, sports television as well as fashion work. Its the foundation that I recommend to all my clients, and that I wear myself all summer long.
Make Up Forever isn’t sold in most department stores.
You can find it nationwide at Sephora, at the Make Up Forever Studio store in NYC,
