About that base

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

Two beauty truths: The point of foun­da­tion is to not look like you have any on, and a matte fin­ish shouldn’t mean a dry fin­ish. En­ter the new NARS Vel­vet Matte Skin Tint ($54). It’s a matte for­mula, ex­plains makeup artist Diane Ken­dal, but it doesn’t look like you’ve put pow­der on over foun­da­tion. “It al­lows the skin un­der­neath to show through so it still looks very lu­mi­nous,” she says. At the hair and makeup test for Thakoon’s spring/sum­mer 2016 show, Ken­dal told us that the best way to ap­ply the tint is with your fin­gers (“The heat from your hand makes it go on eas­ier”), but feel free to grab a brush and ap­ply it over ar­eas that need more cov­er­age.
