A girl walks into Sephora…and asks for foundation she can apply with her fingers. After a few false starts, “We really recommend using this optical blurring brush-” NO. “What about a beauty blender?” NO. “It really doesn’t add any time to use a proper-” NO, here’s what we came up with.
Because sometimes a girl just needs to smear stuff on her face and get out the door. Ya feel me?
Tarte BB Tinted Treatment
This is the product that the salesperson at Sephora recommended. It’s suuuper lightweight with surprisingly good coverage, and it has a whipped, mousse-like consistency. It also has an SPF 30 (although I rarely trust foundation to give me enough sun protection).
Supergoop! CC Cream Daily Correct
This product is the one foundation that I trust as a sunscreen. It’s SPF 35, and it’s consistency feels like sunscreen – that’s the only downside. The upside is that it blends in easily, and has flawless coverage. This is the foundation I wear skiing, hiking, at the beach. I didn’t realize it’s power as a foundation until I started getting compliments on my skin. One of my friends, L, who always has flawless makeup and is gorgeously put together, asked about my foundation at the ski hill recently, expecting something fancy. Nope. Just a reallllly fabulous sunscreen (that apparently doubles as foundation).
Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done
I’ve been using this one for years. I love how it manages to even my skin tone without hiding my freckles.
Note about sunscreen: Unless I’m using Supergoop’s CC Cream, I layer an SPF under my foundation. The best one I’ve found for everyday use is Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen. It’s an amazing primer and sunscreen. Sunscreen re-application is always with Supergoop’s powder sunscreen. And no, this post isn’t sponsored by Supergoop, I’m just genuinely obsessed with their products. 🙂 For more makeup tips and tricks like this one, check out our Beauty section!
