Remember when I told you that one of my resolutions this year was that I wanted to find my perfect foundation? Well, the search is on.
Now, I was naive and really thought it was going to be as simple as just finding my correct shade. Really, that is just one piece of the puzzle for me. In reality, this is more of a lifestyle change for this tinted moisturizer gal. This is making realize that it takes me more time to get ready since I have to wait for all of my layers of moisturizer & primer to “set” before I get the next layer on before I can get to the foundation, instead of just slathering on my TM. It also isn’t as forgiving about slacking skin maintenance. Since it is tends to be thicker/more opaque than my TM’s, it doesn’t do well with unexfoliated skin, no matter how many layers of potions I have put on prior.
And the variety. Oh gawd, it is freaking overwhelming. Drugstore? Department store? Matte? Illuminating? Mineral? 3in1/Multitasking? Or, finding a color match, but the product is discontinued now? Like, really, so much to choose from – this pic is just a sampling of what I am trying.
So, I’m just getting started. I’m trying to wear one at a time for a couple of weeks, but sometimes it’s just a matter of what is within arms reach, ya know?
Tell me – what foundations to I need to make sure are on my “try me” list?
