Are you looking for a foundation that will hydrate, and cover at the same time? I know I love a foundation that covers, even though I have great skin, I love to get a flawless look, especially under the eyes. Our BB Cream is an amazing foundation, it hydrates, but unfortunately, it doesn’t cover like I want it too. I absolutely love our Touch Liquid Foundation, but before going to New Orleans, I knew I would be dying of heat (I am a Northern Canadian), so I knew I would sweat a lot. But now with winter coming, our skin tends to get dryer. This Foundation Trio will give you amazing coverage all while hydrating your skin. And, what I love about it is that the colour has a wider range, you can play around with it a bit more.
So what is this Foundation Trio that I’m talking about? (And I haven’t included a primer, although as you know me, I find it sooo important, but this foundation is a bit more forgiving) Also, if you want to know more about each product, click on the blue writing.
This is, obviously, our concealer. It is thick, and a little goes a long way. This concealer is amazing and gives full coverage. When using it under your foundation, a tiny drop under each eye is more than enough. I have yet to find a concealer that tops this, and I have been using concealers forever. I have horrible under eye circles.
This foundation is exactly what it is meant to do, enhance. It does not provide full coverage, it gives a light, natural, dewey coverage. Perfect for many people, but for me, this product alone does not do it.
This product is new from this year, and I am absolutely hooked! Alone, this gives a soft Photoshop look, used with other products and it’s amazing. One amazing trick that it does as well, seeing as it’s a setting powder, is that by applying it, it keeps your foundation from entering in your fine lines and wrinkles. I would often get some built up under the eyes a bit, but not with this. You must apply it right after applying your foundation.
How to get Full Coverage
Ok, so now that we have the products pointed out, what do I do with them? Super simple, on my hand, I add BB Cream and our Skin Perfecting Concealer. Mix them together, and then apply it all over my face. How much concealer do we add? That is up to you, if you want a lot of coverage, add more, medium coverage, a small amount, it is all about preference. You do NOT need to do 1:1 ratio, so less than half for sure. Once you have applied it with a brush, and it can seem like a lot, but then using a blending bud and dab it. Use some pressure, and continue until you have an even and natural finish. I always dab my foundation on, even with a brush. I never go in circles, and if I move it around, I always do it in a downward motion (the hairs on your face could lift up, not giving you that perfect look). Once applied with the brush, that’s when I use the blending bud.
As soon as I have achieved the look I wanted, I use a double-sided powder brush to apply the Translucent Setting Powder. Use the small side of the double-ended brush to apply under the eyes and around the nose, and the bigger end for the rest. Again, I dab, I do not brush it on.
I love what type of finishing look this gives. And I’m sure once you try it, you’ll be more than surprised as well.
But of course, for me to show you just how great this Foundation Trio is, let me share with you a picture of me without makeup. 😉 It just doesn’t give the same effect without.
Pretty magical right? If you have any questions about these products, feel free to ask! I can even colour match you!
