Whenever I have an evening event that might invite more dramatic makeup, I do two things to up my game: apply false lashes and use a foundation with more coverage than my favorite BB cream or more natural looking go-to Bare Minerals liquid or gel.
It’s usually my Tom Ford Traceless Foundation stick.
So last week when I had an actual gala to attend, I panicked when I discovered that my beloved Tom Ford was old and dry. And probably full of germs or microbes or whatever skeevy thing happens to makeup that’s been hanging around too long.
And then, in one of those rare moments when the world actually makes sense, I found myself in a Soul Cycle class (outside my usual schedule and location—totally in an effort to de-bloat for the defining dress I’d be wearing) taught by one of my favorite instructors, who also happens to be a fierce makeup artist.
When I asked Daniel after class what his favorite foundation for fuller coverage was, he did not hesitate. He even knew what color I’d wear—and we both knew Sephora was around the corner so giddiness ensued.
What struck me most about this Urban Decay Naked Skin liquid foundation is not it’s totally unreal texture, it’s truly buildable coverage or the fact that it’s loaded with peptides and antioxidants, among other stellar skin enhancers. What’s so striking about this truly weightless magic liquid is the light it lends to the skin. It provides coverage but it also brightens with it’s unique light diffusing spheres. (Read: blurred lines. invisible pores.)
Love it more because it’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, GMOs or triclosan.
