I put on little make-up every day however I am keen on a glowing bronzed complexion and robust brows on date night time. My pores and skin is often oily, however is at present dealing with some dryness across the eyes, nostril and lips because of the chilly climate.
WHAT I USUALLY LOOK FOR IN A FOUNDATION:
A luminous base that brings out the golden tones of my olive pores and skin (and never the inexperienced ones – hell no!). When sporting a full-face of make-up I gravitate in direction of silky formulation with medium protection to constructed up my look. My all-time favorite basis needs to be Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Basis (in shade 6).
TARTE’S SHAPE TAPE FOUNDATION REVIEW:
I used to be very excited to strive Tarte’s new launch and I believe is honest to say each magnificence junkie is simply too. The muse, which is meant to be as heavy-duty because the concealer, has been launched in two formulation: a matte and a hydrating one.
Though I like a matte base, I picked the hydrating one as a result of I am discovering my pores and skin fairly dry this winter. And since at first look, this appeared like a heavy system, I believed layering it with a heavy moisturiser to assuage my thirsty complexion can be somewhat an excessive amount of.
As I utilized the primary stroke – with a supersized gloss-like applicator – my first ideas have been “this can cowl my each pore and downside” – it is an understatement to say it is heavy. Should you’re used to light-weight foundations like myself, it’d scare you – however let’s chill and unfold this out, lets?
I selected to unfold the muse with a brush slightly than a magnificence blender and it did not really feel as heavy as I believed it will as soon as all was set. It is truly fairly hydrating (because it guarantees) and satin-like on the pores and skin. It introduced out a fairly glow on my cheekbones and nostril, which inspired me to ditch the highlighter for the day.
I’ve a blemish-prone pores and skin, so I hoped the muse would cowl the darkish spots on my chin and brow – and it utterly erased them. I had my concealer in hand, and yeah, I ditched that too! So it is honest to say this basis is a timesaver.
Because the day glided by, the muse did not budge. I spend round 5 hours with it earlier than heading residence determined to use some setting powder on my T-zone, underneath eyes and lids the place it had creased somewhat.
Consider the hype! This can be the last word high-coverage basis. Should you’re all for a full-face then Tarte’s new launch is unquestionably for you. Should you’re a fan of a light-weight, pure base, then the glow this system offers will probably be sufficient to persuade you to put money into it for giant night time outs.
