Foundation Makeup

Not sure if Erica Ash‘s ‘Survivor’s Remorse‘ M-Chuck character would appreciate the joys of a great multi-tasking foundation makeup find since she’s part tomboy, part girl-crazy, and part “I could give a f***.” But who cares because the discovery of great  foundations from Jay Manuel Beauty, Skinn Cosmetics and BY TERRY isn’t lost on us here at HKI!

Powder-To-Cream

Celeb makeup artist Jay Manuel continues to wow us with an amazing collection of makeup products that includes Jay Manuel Beauty Filter Finish Collection Powder to Cream Foundation ($38, jaymanuelbeauty.com) – multi-tasking foundation makeup find #1. This foundation starts off in a velvety-powdery form, but once it hits your skin, microencapsulated pigments and humectants are released and melt into a medium to full coverage cream makeup. Got fine lines? Not to worry because this powder won’t settle into them as it glides onto your skin with a soft, complexion-enhancing texture and is formulated with Diamond Dust, which creates a soft focus appearance by reflecting light off the skin’s surface. Lastly, FFC contains complexion-loving antioxidants, derived from Vitamins A, C and E to rejuvenate your skin’s tone and texture. 12 shades in all!

Plasma Finish

Multi-tasking Foundation makeup find#2 is Skinn Cosmetics Plasma Foundation SPF 8 Ageless Finish Matte Makeup ($28, store.skinn.com) – a mousse-like foundation that can’t be seen by the naked eye as it rests on your face providing you with the flawless finish you deserve. This Plasma Foundation SPF 8 contains pigments so small that they exist in a plasma state encased in micro-bubbles of Argan, Rose Hips and Flax Seed Oils. It’s also infused with Omega 3, 6, 9 and 12 fatty acids, which allow these new pigments to suspend themselves over your pores, imperfections and wrinkles, which virtually guarantees that this foundation will never crease, cake or clump so you look naturally flawless. Six shades in all!

Foundation For Dummies

Multi-tasking Foundation makeup find#3 is BY TERRY LIGHT-EXPERT – Perfecting Foundation Brush ($65, beauty.com) – an anti-blemish, anti-dullness, anti-shadow foundation brush that guarantees a flawless finish with every stroke! At the sound of a click, the brush applies the virtually invisible featherlight foundation that seamlessly covers hiccups.
