With few events already under our belt, we have fallen into the trap of reapplying our foundation over existing make-up. It works as a quick fix, but it’s not a long term solution if you are hoping to survive the party season with your skin intact.
Instead, we recommend finding a foundation that works overtime to keep your make-up in place, from morning to night. That doesn’t mean you have to go full coverage as that can actually make it feel too heavy on the skin, instead we suggest medium coverage that you apply on top of the setting solution – we have it on good authority from a MAC makeup artist that using setting solution under foundation will make it last longer.
We find matte formulas work best, but if your skin doesn’t require a lot of coverage, then you can get away with dewy finishes. From weightless to oil free, from luxuriously creamy to buildable formula, these are the foundations you should be investing in.
