Basis/Tinted Moisturizer/CC Cream


Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, Concealer, Powder in 6.5

I’ve so many basis and base favorites. I’ve tried to separate my suggestions by sort/protection/end degree as a result of I do know a few of you want tremendous mild protection whereas others want satin end or full protection.

Hydrating Tints/Bases

Summer season Fridays Sheer Pores and skin Tint is without doubt one of the greatest sheer pores and skin tints (emphasis on sheer). Protection may be very mild and end is dewy and glowy. It does have sufficient pigment that you’ll want to discover a good match but it surely seems very pure on the pores and skin. I put on Shade 4.

It’s the most effective for dry pores and skin for my part however on the sheer facet so that you positively want so as to add some concealer for extra protection (or layer a stick on sure areas you want extra coloration). I discovered the shades of the drops match the stick components.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Pores and skin-Caring Glow Basis is a superb hydrating basis with medium protection. It’s not so hydrating that it seems too dewy or emollient however it’s positively on the hydrating facet. I put on N280 or W310.

If it’s separating on you I extremely suspect it’s your moisturizer that isn’t suitable with this components. I put on Heat Beige.

I’m a match to Santa Fe proper now, but in addition put on Sahel and Vanuatu.
