2605Finding 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.26062505

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.

    I was recently swatching this foundation at my local shoppers, and I was blown away. It really shouldn’t be surprising to me, since I love vichy skincare items. Of course their foundation would be perfect!!

    I spent 15 years working with EEs as a sales rep. I remember the first big sales conference I attended. I wandered in sat down and after a short period of time I started feeling a bit weird, and I wondered why. Then I took a good look around the room and realized that I was the only woman in the room who wasn’t serving the breakfast! It can be pretty challenging being a woman walking in to what the men consider to be a “man’s world” but when you succeed, it also feels that much sweeter.

    I had no idea that Vichy made a foundation line – actually, I had no idea they made cosmetics at all. I am really familiar with the skin care and I have used it. But I had no clue about the foundation. I would love to try the line. I prefer light coverage & I am looking for a new foundation. So it would be lovely to try.
