I want to share my favorite make up trick with you that is fabulous for these cold winter months that can dry out your skin.
First of all....I never used to use liquid foundation. I always was a fan of powder foundation because liquid foundation looked "cakey" on my skin and I like a more natural look. I now have learned that powder coverage isn't the best because it can settle into fine lines! ...no one wants that!
I finally found a liquid foundation I absolutely LOVE. Tint Skin from Beautycounter is the best. It's "buildable" so you can control the amount of coverage. It can also make a huge difference how it looks depending on how you apply it. I never thought brushes made much difference and now I realize they can make all the difference! When I use the Retractable Foundation Brush, it goes on so evenly and applies it with a sheer, even, natural look. Then for areas around my nose, etc that I need a little more coverage, the Flat Complexion Brush gives a more medium coverage.
Here's the "trick" I'm dying to share with you guys...
I've been using the Tint Skin by putting a pea size amount in the palm of my hand. I then add two drops of Face Oil. I mix it together with the Retractable Foundation Brush and then apply to my face, starting in the center and sweeping outwards. This gives you a wonderful sheer coverage with a slight dewy glow! It keeps my skin very moisturized in these dry winter months.
The best part? These products are safer and don't contain harmful chemicals like many cosmetics do! Beautycounter has a "Never List" so it simplifies my life....
Here's a great guide to help you choose the Face Oil that's perfect for your skin type...they are all so luxurious. I add a couple of drops to my moisturizer too...
Don't be afraid of these Face Oils. Unlike synthetic oils that can sit on top of skin and make it appear "greasy", these absorb beautifully and are so hydrating. They also balance the pH of you skin!
I hope you try and love this trick as much as I do! If Santa didn't bring you safer skincare and makeup this year... treat yourself!
