Thank goodness for companies like Elizabeth Arden, SheaMoisture and Becca Cosmetics whose liquid foundations shade offerings are dense – 18 or more, each. Finally, people who see beauty on a global scale and it looks like Lucy Liu, Brandy and so many other shades in-between. *shedding a tear*
The temperature is creeping up slowly and the idea of wearing heavy makeup isn’t exactly appealing on a hot and sticky day. Instead, consider one of these three liquid foundations that range from letting your luminous skin shine through to heavier coverage for those of us who have a little more to hide…
Bravo to Elizabeth Arden for paying attention to the details – I’ll explain. After getting a sneak peak at their Limited-Edition Summer Escape Collection for spring earlier this month, which, by the way is truly a work of art, the brand also debuted my new favorite thing – Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude ($38.50, elizabetharden.com) – a light, breathable liquid formula that comes in not three or six shades, but 26 shades ladies! Elizabeth Arden’s Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo made it her mission to mirror the many shades of all of us. Perfectly Nude moisturizes skin for 24 hours and when applied, quickly disappears for a naturally luminous look that lasts all day.
New to market is SheaMoisture Sheer Foundation ($12.99, target.com), which comes in 20 gorgeous shades. Made with the brand’s signature Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Aloe, this liquid foundation hydrates as it evens your complexion. This foundSheer, lightweight comfort while providing medium-to-full coverage. You’ll always get a naturally flawless finish!
• Long-wearing coverage that lasts up to eight hours
• Provides all-day hydration while softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
With 18 beautiful shades at your fingertips, Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme ($44, sephora.com) covers God’s little mistakes without feeling heavy because it’s a breathable foundation made with high concentrations of pigment and water.
…and now I lay me down to sleep. Thanks to whoever is listening to me up there in beauty heaven.
