Since then I love make ups. But I got hooked to it at about 3 years ago. I’ve tried almost different kind of brands from foundations (powder and liquid), lipsticks, & blush-ons. The only thing I’m not good at is anything about eyes. Applying eye shadow is not my forte at all. My skin is the combination type. Rarely do I use liquid foundation because it normally gets sticky on my face. It gets drier and cakey when I try to blot some powder for finish touch. I tried using DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Foundation, it’s really smooth on my skin however, when my face gets too dry it tends to be so thick and heavy on the feeling. Until such then, I kept using powder foundations by Dior, Chanel and MAC.
Last year, I had a great time make-up bonding with my friend. She get to introduce me to Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation. It’s the best foundation I ever had. It met my very basic requirement, having a natural look. It’s very lightweight, has not accentuated any dryness and it gives a very smooth finish. It doesn’t give you any single greasy feeling. Since, it’s water-based which makes it very light on skin, it won’t give full coverage when you have pimples on the face. On the other hand, it’s non-comedogenic, which most not likely to cause allergic reactions nor will not even clog your pores. It would perfectly work for those with pretty good skin.
When I get to feel I wanted a natural look for the day, I just basically apply this and add some light color blush. It also works well with powder foundation for medium coverage or will actually depend on how you would want to end your finish. If I prefer a matte look finish, I just blot some powder foundation on my face. This foundation is really amazing with an added bonus of a lovely scent this makeup has. I’ve been using this more than a year now and I even stock it in case I don’t have time buying a new one. I just can’t afford to miss. It’s the only liquid foundation my skin adored. It lasts for 7-8 hours. A simple powder touch would do to keep you all day. No need to re-apply this foundation all over again.
TIPS: Shake the bottle well before use to bring out the sensorial qualities of the texture. Application works best if you use your fingers.
