I packed what I considered my tried and true makeup for a recent trip. I don’t usually give much thought to daily makeup since it’s kept to a minimum but I had a wedding to attend plus several dinners where I felt like dressing up. The products I brought seemed off, specifically foundation and concealer. They weren’t covering my spots or under eye circles. The texture wasn’t melting into my skin like at home and looked terribly artificial. In a pinch, I picked out some new products and am more than pleased. An ILIA Serum Foundation worked beautifully for coverage and texture. I like the consistency better than another ILIA foundation I had at home with SPF. Same with the concealer. Super coverage with minimal application and a natural finish. I finished off with a setting spray I tapped on my skin with fingertips.
The other products I brought from home balanced well with the new foundation. My go to duo of Victoria Beckham eye pencils are still the best. I softened the liner with Chanel Les Beiges eyeshadow and completed with Le Volume de Chanel mascara. New for me and absolutely fantastic! A pop of saturated lip color from Dior was the finishing touch. I love it and have several colors from a nude pink to true red.
