I’ve been on the lookout for a new foundation for a while and I’ve been struggling if I’m honest. I wear foundation maybe twice a week, as I prefer day to day to just use my skincare and leave my skin naked. I think that’s mostly as I work from home though. However, when I wear foundation I want to feel polished and flawless but I don’t want it to feel like a mask. I know most people feel the same but it can be actually a hard balance to have coverage without being to heavy.
Up until around 5 years ago, I had never worn anything other than a little concealer. So what am I covering up? I thought it important to mention that as you may be looking for something to do the same. I have broken veins on both of my cheeks and feel my nose area has larger pores and is redish in the corners, I also feel my chin for some reason is a slightly uneven colour.
Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
I’ve been trying out the Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ £31 and overall I am very impressed. I’m very pale but have quite a warm undertone, and struggle with shades. My favourite shade is ‘light‘ but I may buy ‘fair‘ for wintertime.
I would describe the Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream as a midway foundation so not matt or dewy it’s in-between the two. It’s got a lovely skin-like feel to it once applied. This is the IT Cosmetics #1 best-selling foundation, full coverage foundation and anti-ageing with SPF50 that brightens and hydrates while camouflaging skin imperfections. It also minimises the appearance of pores and gives an overall hydrated look to your skin. I love it!
Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush #7
Now I have a great foundation, that works well for my skin type I wanted to share with you another IT Cosmetic product that is infamous and it’s the double-ended complexion brush at £35.00. I don’t have anything like this brush and thats not just because it’s double-headed, which I’ve got to say is going to come in handy when I am travelling. The larger foundation brush is dense but still quite fluffy, so it makes it perfect for buffing the skin when using foundation. I use the smaller brush with a little more of the foundation on those areas around my nose that are red.
The only thing I can see that might be an issue is if you store your brushes in a jar. I do for most of mine but have a tendency to have a couple of my favourites in my makeup bag, so that’s what I’ve done with this. Just so the bristle don’t get distorted.
