When the dollar counts now more than ever,
how to get the most for our money.
Top foundations picked by the Pros.
For medium, natural coverage Chanel Vitalumiere Moisture-Rich Radiance Fluid Makeup spf 15 $54, for full coverage Kevin Aucoin The Liquid Airbrush $45, and for sheer tinted spf coverage Remede tinted moisturizer $40. The best all around coverage and age defying effect, T. Le Clerc Hydrating Fluid Foundation $50.
These foundations are easy to apply, virtually flawless in coverage, and definitely considered a luxury buy.
Whatever the situation, or if it's just a mood that strikes you, and you just can't see yourself throwing down fifty dollars for your base, there are some amazing alternatives right in your own neighborhood pharmacy.
True Match from Loreal $11 for a medium, natural coverage. Physicians Formula Organic Wear Tinted Moisturizer spf 15 $10, for a sheer touch of color and evening out skin tone. Then we have Maybellines New Dream Smooth Mousse $9, for a slightly fuller coverage.
Now, there is also Mac Select spf 15 $31 for a medium to full coverage, not a $10 makeup but not $50 either.
With all the choices and products to choose from it can be overwhelming and even though we want the most for our money, it is more important to remember, that foundation is the one thing we apply all over our face so we want to make sure that it's quality and as healthy for our skin as possible.
