While we all strive for makeup-free skin, the reality is that most of us will dip into the sometimes hard to navigate foundation abyss at least one time in our lives.
And here to help you on that perfect foundation match search is your fellow beauty junkie…
Considered the makeup artist’s brand for over 65 years, Kryolan’s new website now speaks to everyday consumers looking for products to meet their cosmetics needs. For the most luminous of finishes with a little more coverage than usual for liquid foundations, Kryolan offers over 40 shades of Kryolan Ultra Fluid Foundation ($18.99, makeupshowroom.com) for many skin types. That’s hot!
The surprise find of this foundation rundown is SimplyVera Naturally Radiant Hydrating Makeup ($39.50, kohls.com). Hue Knew that the 10 shades the line offers, which gives moderate coverage leaving your skin with a luminous finish, would extend to even my deep skin tone – seamlessly? You’ll love.
10 years after the Kevyn Aucoin Beauty brand was established, it still lives on as a powerhouse within the cosmetic buying community…case in point, HKI’s lovin’ sheer to full coverage Sensual Skin Enhancer by Kevyn Aucoin Beauty ($45, nordstrom.com) – 16 shades in all. ‘Sensual’ glides onto your skin and covers all sorts of sins like dark under eye circles and the ickiest of blemishes. As one reviewer of this product said, “Ahhmazing!”
Even though there are only 6 shades within the Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation ($39.84, qvc.com) line, HKI still ❤’s this product. If you’re one of the lucky ones who finds their perfect shade, you’ll notice from the first wand of the included, super-soft Airbuki Foundation Brush how, within the seconds any visible hiccups disappear. If flawless full coverage is what you want, then flawless full coverage is what you’ll get. The standout feature: the deep well of the container that keeps the finely-milled powder perfectly contained so there’s no mess as it’s being delivered to the brush!
To apply: Use the Airbuki Foundation Brush to buff the powder into your skin with soft, circular motions. I sense a video coming!
Now do you believe me? Faux flawless skin is within reach.
