Whether I’m “putting on my face” for a client meeting, getting ready for a date night with my fiance, Josh, or simply just planning ahead for any number of forthcoming occasions, there are few products that I can say have earned their keep in my daily regimen. These, I consider to be my go-to, “tried and true” favorites for whatever situation lies ahead in our busy schedule.
When perfecting the skin with makeup, a foundation is arguably the most important step of the application process. Admittedly, I’ve always been a planner (#capricornproblems), which according to Josh is an understatement, as he gives me a hard time for planning out time to plan by to-do lists. So, unless I am “planning” a particular look for an upcoming event, my daytime makeup — especially foundation, is chosen based on the premise that it feels and appears as light and natural as possible. After all, makeup is meant to enhance one’s natural beauty, rather than hide it, right?
The quest of achieving a natural daytime look with a full-coverage foundation can be tricky, as the vast majority currently on the market can feel rather thick, weighty, and make the delicate skin of your face feel stiff, dry, flaky, chalky, or even oily depending on your skin type. In fact, most of the full-coverage varieties I’ve previously tried all had one thing in common. That being, having the desire to remove it all shortly after application.
Just when I was about to throw in the towel and lose hope in finding a full-coverage foundation that could squash any of my aforementioned concerns, I FINALLY found one that can:
- appear natural on the skin;
- produce a satin-like, smooth finish;
- minimize pore size;
- convert well from day to night with exceptional buildability;
- cover a range of 40 different shades to match your skin tone; and
- feel weightless, as though I’m not wearing any foundation at all.
Without further ado, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to two products that have officially joined my product rotation. Meet Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation and Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick.
For those reading, I can tell you one thing — Make Up For Ever is neither a “fad,” nor “the new kid on the block.” During my modeling days, the majority of makeup artists, photographers, and other professionals on set used Make Up For Ever, as their products are created for the latest high-definition technologies, resulting in a natural look coupled with a flawless complexion — both on and off camera.
Presently, as I advance my career, my time is spent more as an entrepreneur, and less as a model. Therefore, Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation and Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick has taken my client meeting face game to a whole new level. With that said, I highly recommend Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation and Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick, which can be used to conceal and/or contour based on your particular needs.
