The best liquid foundations for your skin type come in the form of offerings from NARS Cosmetics, No7 and Skinn Cosmetics, three biggies that kick a** in this category.
Having gotten so used to the feel of a tinted moisturizer, I completely forgot about the greatness that is a liquid foundation, starting with NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ($48, narscosmetics.com), a foundation that feels like nothing on the tips of of your fingers, goes on as light as a feather and delivers superior full coverage with the first application. HueKnewIt also loves that this foundation comes in no less than 20 shades and lasts up to sixteen hours. My shade? Benares.
Farncois Nars’ philosophy about complexion…“Makeup should never hide the complexion, it should reveal who you are.” Precisely.
Normal To Dry Skin
Designed to firm and lift as well cover hiccups is No7 Lift and Luminate Foundation ($14.99, us.boots.com), which delivers medium coverage. Ideal for normal and dry skin types, this foundation also brightens your skin as it disguises fine lines and wrinkles creating a flawless complexion.
Another foundation that’s focused on diminishing the appearance of fine lines, among other benefits is Skinn Cosmetics Plasma Fusion Nourishing Serum Foundation ($32, store.skinn.com). This foundation creates a soft-focused, less-lined, less-cakey look because the Plasma pigment technology spreads, covers and re-arranges itself evenly, allowing filling spheres to work and color to set, creating long-lasting performance and wash-off resistance minutes after application.
Tools of the Trade
To apply the very these luxurious foundations, use the hottest makeup brushes I’ve seen to date…Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection 101 Triangle Foundation ($23.99, ulta.com). The bristles on these pretty rose gold brushes are super soft, the handles are weighted so you have better in-hand balance and the synthetic tips allow for every bit of product pick-up so you get a beautiful makeup finish. Ideal to use for medium to heavy coverage foundations.
