I’m back with another foundation recommendation to bring the “dew” back into our skin especially now since we are all feeling dehydrated from cold weather… and possibly too much celebrating from the holidays.
First comment made when a client sits in my chair: “I don’t want to look cakey.” Which refers to having the look of so much makeup on the face, someone will want to serve you a glass of milk with it. (A long ago Mac Cosmetic joke, sorry)
Matte is a HUGE phenomenon in the beauty scene now. Lips, face, eyes, everything matte! While its beautiful on Instagram, not everyone can pull it off to achieve a flattering look on the skin. Example: Skin with nooks and crannies, like my large pores and lines. Ugh. My skincare blog will be extensive…that later.
Next up, Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water SPF 30. I also freelance for this iconic makeup artist brand that has been around since 1990, started by Dean and Davis Factor, great grandsons of Max Factor. They are THE pioneers in real photo studio makeup so they know what they are talking about when it comes to quality products that photograph beautifully and last throughout the day.
Camera Ready BB Water is described as a dewy, hydrating formula that is oil-free and buildable and never flat looking on the skin. This formula is amazing on my skin because of its versatility of being a primer AND having lightweight coverage AND also buildable coverage where I need it. Perfect for my days off when I want to look fresh and don’t have to have a full-face for work. Side note: This product works excellent under any foundation, even matte, as a primer, for a little extra coverage and to add a dew factor.
Packaged in a lightweight glass bottle with a dropper for portion control, which I am an over-user and appreciate this, it’s also great for trips and kits.
Hope you enjoyed this foundation recommendation! Ask me anything on beauty and I will try my best to answer it for you as quick as I can! I’ll be back soon with 1 more foundation recommendation for that dewy, radiant look that is the next BIG trend in beauty.
