I am so picky with my foundation products. My favourite concealer is Clarins Instant Light (review), my go-to foundation base is Smashbox CC Cream and I switch between Laura Mercier's Mineral Powder or It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation powder to set it all in place. I recently won this beautiful Face and Body foundation ($54) in a giveaway hosted by Beautezine, and I am so pleased with how it works on my skin.
After scouring the net for some swatches, I settled on shade Y225 - yellow alabaster. I think I could work for the foundation CIA, because it's literally perfect. (Should I be proud of this skill?)
I like to apply foundation with my set of e.l.f. Studio complexion brushes (review to come!) and this duo-fibre stippling brush works great to buff this liquidy product into the skin. I was shocked when I first used Water Blend, because it actually feels like water. The cool part, is that the extra thin product dries down to a barely-there, light coverage base that really flatters.
Though it won't cover noticeable redness and spots, I think it's the ideal base for anyone who needs a refreshing and non-irritating, fragrance-free, SPF-free foundation to brighten and even out their skin. I still use a powder to set this in place, and I sometimes use my Smashbox Hydrating Primer underneath. The staying power is good, though this foundation will highlight dryness if you're the type to shy away from moisturizer or exfoliation.
