Foundation is a staple in any makeup bag. It’s the one product that can cover any uneven skintone or breakouts and perfect the skin, ensuring your complexion looks seamless and glowing. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a foundation that goes further than expected?
The iconic Revlon ColorStay™ Longwear Makeup now improves skin’s quality thanks to the addition of skin-caring ingredients. It’s a hard-working foundation that offers 24-hour wear and buildable coverage for all skin types. The waterproof formula is breathable and resistant to transfer, sweat, heat and humidity. It’s free of oil and fragrance (making it a great choice for those with very sensitive skin) and contains a broad-spectrum SPF to protect the skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays.
A good long-wearing foundation should easily take you from day to evening. You want a formula based on your skin type that not only delivers flawless coverage, but also has skincare benefits that include ingredients like antioxidants to protect the skin from damage and pollution, or hyaluronic acid to boost moisture levels in the skin throughout the day.
Choose your hero skincare ingredient from two Revlon ColorStay formulas:
Normal/Dry with Hyaluronic Acid hydrates skin for 24 hours while boosting its moisture by 122% giving the complexion a healthy-looking glow. This formula leaves the skin with a soft and natural finish.
Combination/Oily with antioxidant Vitamin E helps nourish and protect skin from pollutants. Earth-sourced multi-mineral powders work to prevent any oil breakthrough, keeping shine to a minimum. This formula gives the skin a poreless and matte finish.
How to find the perfect foundation shade
To find your perfect shade, swatch three colours similar to your skin tone onto your cheek. The colour that’s least visible is the correct shade for you.
Choose a foundation based on your skin’s needs
Before purchasing a foundation, consider what your main skin concerns are and choose accordingly. If you have oily skin, look for a formula that controls excess oil and shine. Dry skin should opt for liquid formulas that contain hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid.
Perfect your application
Depending on your preference, you could use a foundation brush, a sponge, or your fingers when applying foundation. Just ensure you buff (or bounce, if using a sponge) the foundation into your skin to avoid any streakiness and ensure smooth, perfect coverage.
Work your foundation over your jawline, down your neck and onto the ears to prevent it from looking like a mask.
