Darling, I woke up today feeling beautiful. Did you? In fact, I got up early than usual. (Hint: I´m terribly a late riser.) And I thought what can I do today to achieve a silky-smooth skin with a pore-perfect complexion? As if someone was peeking on my thoughts, an email was shining brightly in my inbox waiting to be opened. Lo! It´s from Topshop announcing the release of THE FACE collection featuring five foundations in color-true tones.
Now I´m definitely not much of a foundation girl, I prefer a just-my-skin-face most days, but there are times when I wear makeup, I want my complexion to look perfect. Is perfection a sin? But when I do wear foundation, I go for super-light formulas. I´m all for natural look.
Choose Your Foundation
I have a brown-white complexion, it looks like white but only because I stay away from the sun most of the time. My skin can´t be classified as morena (a Filipino term for Malay brown) ´cause it´s lighter than brown. However, I noticed that I have an uneven complexion on my face. My forehead is a little darker than my cheeks, I don´t really know why. My husband teases me for it all the time.
I´m looking for a foundation that can copy my original skin tone while at the same time evening it out. I find this Foundation in 2 from Topshop something to consider. I mean I´m convinced I should try this. It´s nude and it has the ability to adapt to the skin tone.
Natural looking is my preferred look so it´s important for me to find a foundation which won´t scream to the world, “she´s wearing a foundation!”
This no.2 is one of the five tones from the collection. Check out the entire five, the Foundation from Topshop.
2 in 1 Corrector
Did you know that pores and wrinkle lines add numbers to your age not because they are pores and they are lines but because of the shadow that emphasize them?
This Airbrush Primer from The Face works to correct those unwanted shadows through photo-reflecting particles that give your skin a glow. You wear it as is for a natural look, or you can wear it as a base to your foundation for a perfect glowing skin.
Hide the Unwanted
If I´m to work on my skin, I definitely need a concealer because of my freckles and a tiny scar below my right eye which was caused by a fun-play-turned-disaster accident in high school. I love this all-in-one concealer palette from the collection. I think that these formulas are perfect complementary to the concealer of my choice.
What do you think of The Face collection from Topshop? Have you heard about it? Are you willing to give it a try?
