MY CURRENT SUMMER BASE COMBO !
You may not know but my approach to makeup it's pretty NATURAL ! That's why I'm always looking for a very "skin like" foundation that can also last a decent amount of time on the skin. But ... as we all know natural foundations and longevity are a pretty hard thing to find and that's why these two bases are the perfect SUMMER combo.
On a daily basis I'll use my beloved CHANEL VitaLumiere Aqua. WHY? Well, it's the most "skin like" foundation I own, it's easy to use and easy to blend in with fingers. (No need to use a brush) The packaging ... Amazing! A small plastic bottle that's perfect for traveling and texture wise this foundation gives my skin the most beautiful lightweight, NATURAL glow. I love to use it on winter time and specially daytime because it's almost undetectable.
Now let's talk about summer... Because when the weather heats up, my skin definitely needs a bit more coverage and a long wearing formula!. And That's exactly what the ALMAY Clear complexion does! This foundation it's a pretty amazing drugstore alternative that no one seems to talk about.
WHY I LOVE IT? Because it has the most lovely velvet finish (not matte), it's has a long wearing formula, is not heavy looking at all and it makes my skin look fresh and flawless. Seriously I feel like this is the Underdog drugstore foundation. If you have combination, oily or normal skin type I highly suggest trying this foundation. It has such a beautiful finish on the skin and it definitely gives a medium higher coverage. Plus! Did you know ALMAY is a dermatological makeup brand? It's recommended by a ton of dermatologist and I personally think it's FABULOUS.
So there you have! Two amazing foundation at a very different price points that work pretty well separately but AMAZINGLY TOGETHER ! I'll call it... The Natural, long wearing summer combo.
Cheers to warmer summer days and zero melting makeup ;) !
