MAKEUP SHAKE-UP (click on the above image to enlarge)
Cocktails, pancake mix, the truth – some things should never be watered down. But liquid foundation? Maybe so. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Makeup and Shiseido Makeup Perfect Refining Foundation aim to be lighter than the average makeup while disguising unevenness just as well as thicker formulas. “Usually to get a more watery feel, you’d use less pigment,” says cosmetic chemist Ron Robinson. That’s what makes these foundations surprising: “They actually give more coverage than a typical liquid foundation,” says makeup artist Quinn Murphy. “The watery texture also means they’re easy to blend, so you could wear them sheer too.”
We found the Shiseido base, which dries to a powder, best for oily skin, and the dewy Chanel one great at concealing redness on dry and combination complexions.
To use: Tap on the a tiny amount with a damp sponge for a light finish, or use a foundation brush for more coverage.
