I’ve been having the best time trying out these high-definition products from Make Up For Ever. A few years ago a makeup artist friend recommended this liquid foundation for me because I realized that my skin was ‘flashing back’ whenever I was in a flash photo. This means that I was looking blue/red in my pictures that were taken with a flash. I also have a sensitivity to chemical sunscreens on my face so I needed to find a natural looking foundation with sunscreen that would keep me looking smooth and even-toned. Jump ahead a few years and I’m surprised with this lovely gift from Make Up For Ever – the PR team did an amazing job choosing a range of shades that are perfect for my pale skin – and I’m having a blast mixing to find my best color and playing around with layering these fabulous products for more coverage when I need it.
I’m amazed at how these colors blended in perfectly. At first glance they don’t look exactly right for my skin tone but once I blended them in – wowee!
Interestingly, the middle shade, #117 is exactly the one that my sweet makeup artist friend Coco had chosen for me long ago! With a little mixing magic I can find the perfect shades to match my skin year-round as I go from my Summer to Winter tone. I’ve been obsessed with primers lately and this line will keep me covered no matter what is happening with my skin. Right now I’m drier than the desert thanks to my camping at Coachella weekend so I chose the ultra hydrating primer:
Concealers are a lifesaver for me and I’ll occasionally just use a concealer to even out my skin on days when I don’t feel like wearing foundation. I’m planning on blending these different shades to create my perfect coverage year-round.
