Need that perfect transitional foundation? You don’t need a heavy coating as much as you might think, but you could surely use some coverage! What you’re after right now is some fluide makeup! I know. I usually relate the word “fluide” to pens and liner. But, everyone’s doing it! And if you’re ready to give in to some cosmetic peer pressure, we have 2 fluide foundation choices for you to check out.
Up first is the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide, which comes in 24 shades. With all fluide makeup it is imperative to SHAKE! Its bi-phased, watery consistency needs to be properly mixed to ensure the color pigments and reflective waters produce an exact color match. It’s advised to apply a small amount on the back of your hand, as it can easily spill out excess makeup.
What is a bi-phased formula you may ask? It is made of two parts designed to give you a natural-looking color and lightweight coverage. Colour true pigments rest at the bottom of the package while reflective Waters Hydro-Brilliant Technology float at the top once you shake it. This oil-free foundation blurs the line between real skin and makeup. Laura Mercier foundation shades are great, since they truly perform for all skintones, undertones and in-betweeners like myself (both yellow and pink undertones, slightly neutral).
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15 is also oil-free, providing a long-lasting, matte-velvet finish. Soft-focus pigments smooth and perfect the skin for a flawless look that lasts all day long. It does dry rather matte, which is perfect for someone with that end-of-summer oily yet normal skin combination. Nine shades will guarantee for a perfect match. If you’re sensitive to scent, the Chanel one does have a slight fragrance, which is commonly found in all Chanel foundations, whereas the Laura Mercier one is scentless (to me at least).
