Many women wear less makeup as they age. They may fear it makes them look older or they want to simplify their routines. I think its fun to play with makeup the way a child plays with crayons. I’m experimenting with more products now than ever before.
I haven’t worn foundation for years because I wasn’t happy with how it settled into my wrinkles and the orange peel texture I have on my chin (thank you sun damage). I’m now at the point where my skin needs more coverage than I can get from my tinted sunscreen.
I’d read about this foundation 2 years ago and really wanted to love it. Sephora alone has over 2,000 glowing reviews so I figured it had to be great. It contains a physical sunblock of 50 and is cruelty-free. Check and check, sign me up! I bought it and hated it. It settled into my lines and made me look older. I tried applying with my fingers, no go. Then I tried using a foundation brush and it was still too heavy so I tossed it and forgot about it.
I continued to read glowing reports so I decided to try it again. This time I applied it with an inexpensive makeup wedge from the drug store. Such a simple, inexpensive tool which fixed the problem of it settling into my lines.
Then I tried combining one drop of this foundation with one drop of this Finishing HA Blur by Hylamide and like the results even more. Blurring products promise to scatter the light which makes pores and lines less visible. Blurring is a great way to describe what my over 60 skin needs.
Using a sponge may waste a little product but I’m OK with that because it goes on thinly and doesn’t make me look older than I am.
Products have come a long way and I’m experimenting with many new ones which I’ll share with you here.
Do you have a foundation you swear by? Please share why you love it?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
