Finding the right foundation can be tough, especially when you want one that will last the whole day without feeling like you are wearing a mask. It seems like every couple of weeks, the research done behind foundations is evolving – you have foundations that are hydrating, illuminating, providing maximum coverage and so forth making it hard to keep up. Every time I visit the mall and stop by the makeup counter, there is a new type of foundation with a complex method of application making it daunting and scary.
I like foundation that’s simple, light, and easy to apply. If it doesn’t require me to view a YouTube view on how to apply it and has a solid record regarding the research done behind it, I know I’m going to fall in love with it. That’s exactly what happened when I got my hands on the Teint Ideal line from Vichy.
The first time I applied the illuminating foundation, I fell in love with how it made my skin glow and appear dewy. My skin looked like it was radiating and because it’s liquid water-based, I needed very little to apply on my skin to create that smooth satin-finish.
For days when my skin is dry and I want medium coverage the Teint Ideal Cream Foundation is perfect! Unlike the illuminating foundation, this one gives me stronger coverage with an almost velvety like finish. Plus, if you suffer from pale skin in the winter time, this foundation is perfect to help give you the appearance of a healthy glow.
To help keep the foundation in place, I apply a light layer of the compact powder all over and slip it into my purse so I can use it to touch-up throughout the day. Another trick I use when applying makeup is dabbing the Teint Ideal Highlighter to certain areas on my face that need a little boost in radiance. This includes areas like my forehead, bridge of my nose and my upper cheek bone.
Although I have got myself covered in obtaining that dewy skin, I sometimes like to add a sun-kissed glow to my skin. This is the first time I have ever used a bronzer and I am officially hooked, I love how soft and light the coverage is. Plus the compact size makes it easy to slip into my purse with my compact powder so I can touch up throughout the day to maintain that natural sun-kissed finish.
