My new routine looks a little something like this: I start by prepping my skin, which, for me, is a key step as I’m prone to breakouts and my pores are the size of dinner plates (just kidding, sort of). First, I apply the Vapour Organic Soft Focus Skin Perfecting Primer all over, which is made with camellia and sunflower seed oils for a soft, mattifying finish. Then, I go in and tap a light layer of the Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Crème under and over my eyelids; it has a universally flattering, pearl-hued opalescent tint (say that five times fast) and is made with date palm kernel and lavender for brightening around my eyes. When I finally feel like my skin is ready for foundation, I reach for the Burt’s Bees® Goodness Glows Full Coverage Liquid Makeup, which actually turns out to be my skin’s brand-new secret weapon. Let me explain: Because of my aforementioned skin problems, foundation is a critical product to get right. While I’m used to splurging on the most expensive liquid foundation I can find in hopes that the pricier it is, the more it’ll work, sadly, I’ve not found that to be the case. This foundation — formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients like meadowfoam seed oil, rather than parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, talc, or silicones — not only keeps my skin hydrated all day, but it also gives me full coverage without that cakey, melty, or streaky look. Plus it didn’t break the bank.
