I like my makeup to be minimal. I don’t like my face to look like a bad version of an oil painting from the 1800s. Most of the foundations I usually wear are powders, like Smashbox “Halo” Hydrating Perfecting Powder or Bare Escentual’s bareMinerals Mineral Veil. Both work well for my skin type and my desired, fresh-faced look. But, they are not always enough.
Enter my new love. My new partner in achieving Julianne Hough—Jessica Simpson—Alyssa Milano—good skin: Make up Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation. This oil-free, long lasting foundation feels incredibly light and natural on skin. And, any imperfections or blemishes vanish immediately. It comes in 25 different shades so you’ll easily be able to find the perfect one to match your skin tone. Since it’s a liquid foundation, you can squirt a few dabs around your face and use your fingertips to blend the product until it’s a light, all-over coverage. However, my preferred method is to squirt the foundation onto the back of my hand or an old CD and use a brush (my pick is Sephora Collection Pro Foundation Airbrush in #56) to gently apply. You don’t need a ton—a little definitely goes a long way. Too much will make you look like a Geisha doll, but the right amount is divine. Your skin will be flawless, you don’t have to worry about the foundation rubbing off, and since this product was originally intended for photo shoots and spotlights, you know you will look gorgeous in all those self-portraits you take with your friends. So get your best kissy-face ready, shove Katy Perry and the rest aside, and prepare yourself for that glowing skin you deserve.
