P.S. The 'paint' in the picture above is actually foundation
great post and difficult quiestion, since makeup is so personal. I always have problems finding a foundation match (too pale for most foundations but I don't consider myself as a goast). I use fake tan, which gives me a light olive complexion (leaning natural), sometimes I feel, like cosmetic companies only know yellow and orange. in asia they at least release the lighter foundation shades (as if western women only need 1 foundation colour) ----> guerlain, I am calling your name now! why there is no #1 here?!ReplyDelete
Hi Claire, I agree, it's so hard to find a match and I also have the too yellow or too orange problem too. I have a little olive in my skin too---I think the choices for olive skin tend to be more limited, and it often gets lumped into the 'yellow' category.Delete
Excellent article. I love the photo of you with the artist's palette. I have an easy time with foundation because I found my match 12 years ago and have rarely wavered. I will stick with it until my skin becomes too old to handle it anymore, and then I'll either find something else or maybe I won't even care!ReplyDelete
Oh, I absolutely do want to try the new YSL foundation, which I believe uses a similar formula to their beloved Touche Eclat.
BTW, I will have issues voting. I click the button and nothing happens. I am hoping the vote gets registered anyway ... quietly behind the scenes. I must be Allure cursed.
Thank you so much for reading it Zuzu! Wow, I can't believe you found the perfect match 12 years ago! I found NARS Deauville this year, which is as close to perfect for me as I've ever gotten. I liked it so much I've pretty much give away my Chanels and other foundations to my mom :)Delete
Haha, thank you Liz!Delete
Great article! Foundation makes such a difference in overall look. Pick the wrong one and you risk emphasizing flaws instead of covering them up :) I'm always on the hunt for a really great foundation. Haven't found my holy grail yet!ReplyDelete
