Starting my 1st post off with my current favorites (which, as you will get to know me, changes every week)
Current Foundation: Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation SPF15/PA++
A deliciously smooth foundation from Koh Gen Do ($62, sephora.com) that is perfect for spring/summer. This light foundation goes on with medium coverage to add that ‘perfection’ without the caked on makeup look. I love that hydration is delivered through seawater minerals and botanicals. Putting it on makes me feel like I’m doing something good for my skin and not just covering it up. It stays throughout the day, but I would definitely remove and start with a clean face for re-application between day & night.
Current Primer: Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection SPF50 PA+++
Love the Chantecaille line, which boasts botanicals and naturals. This primer not only delivers a smooth base for your foundation, but also protects skin with SPF50. It also reverses damage and aging caused by sugar-metabolism, which is very interesting. I’m not sure if I noticed any anti-aging but I was thrilled to use this as a primer. It went on very very light, and absorbed easily without giving my skin any trouble. Also love the metal tube, great to put into my bag for flights
Guerlain is one of my favorite brands. I first fell in love with their foundations, but as they are a little heavy for me, I’ve started playing with other products in their line. The Shine Automatique is beautiful. It is creamy, decadent, and hydrating. It adds shine to lips through pearl infused particles so it is rather discreet. I found this to be the perfect level for me where it was enough to stand out from a being a flat color, but wasn’t distracting at the gym (yes I put lipstick on even when I walk to the gym). The tube is gorgeous and I love digging it out of my bag.
That’s it for now, next post- the cleansers I have on rotation!
