A good foundation is essential to me. It sets the tone for my entire makeup look and if my complexion looks good the rest of my makeup is going to look that much better.
Most recently I have been testing out the Face Atilier Ultra Foundation* and I am hooked.
I think this is the best colour match in a foundation I have ever found. It has a natural satin finish to it that is quite easily buildable into more of a full coverage. There are 16 shades to choose from, however, you can also order adjusters to lighten or darken the foundation, which will come in handy for me in the summer should I get a tan (wishful thinking on my part)!
It has a silicone based formula which doesn’t require a primer or a setting powder, though I still use both to get the longest wear out of it. It lasts all day and well into the night without needing a touchup, which I was very impressed with.
The formula floats over top of your skin because the silicone molecule is bigger than the size of pores. This means your skin gets a blurred look and the foundation won’t settle into pores, fine lines, or wrinkles.
I like it applied with a brush best, though a damp Beauty Blender works well too. It feels lightweight on and makes my skin look flawless.
If you’re in the market for a new foundation I recommend checking out Face Atilier’s website HERE. Besides selling full sized products, they also sell samples for $1.00 each. I think this is incredible because it allows you to really try out their products before you buy them.
