Hi Kiddos! Over the course of my blog’s life, I have been meaning to do more beauty posts and the passing of my not-so-little milestone on Monday seemed like the perfect time to renew my resolution.
Through the first part of this year, I was using YSL’s Le Teint Touche Eclat. It undoubtedly gives a great finish. The one problem I continually encountered was its wear time.
I’d apply it with a primer and setting powder in the morning and by 2pm my coverage would start to fade. This problem became more intense as the mercury rose and so it was time to figure out plan B.
As my skin is sensitive. I am always cautious about trying any new products so instead I decided to give an old standby another go around. I had used bareMinerals’ classic foundation years ago when I first started to work in a corporate office and therefore wear a full face of makeup on a daily basis.
I actually can’t remember why I ever gave it up…it is so light while still having buildable coverage, gives a great pore-less finish and, most importantly, lasts from early morning until after drinks in the evening. This is one staple that I will carry over into the new season!!
I should also give an honorable mention to their bronzer. It’s wonderfully blendable and is a natural-looking red-based shade (as opposed to something in the dreaded orange family).
