MATCH POINT

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

Buy­ing foun­da­tion is the beauty equiv­a­lent of buy­ing jeans: It’s hard to find some­thing that fits, and the idea of try­ing them all on is ex­haust­ing. But with th­ese lat­est for­mu­las, it’s easy to find the per­fect match. “My mother al­ways said that sun is beauty sui­cide,” says fair-skinned Char­lotte Til­bury, who made sure to in­clude an SPF 15 in Char­lotte Til­bury Magic Foun­da­tion ($49). The weight­less yet full-cov­er­age skin fix has a range of shades for all skin tones—from Lily Cole to Lupita Ny­ong’o. If you want to look glow-y (but not greasy), the oil-based Giorgio Armani Mae­stro Glow ($68) has se­bum-ab­sorb­ing fillers made of aero­gel—the same ma­te­rial NASA uses to col­lect in­ter­stel­lar dust—that can hold up to four times their weight, so pig­ment stays in place. For darker skin tones, try Lancôme Teint Idole Ul­tra 24H ($47); its deeper shades are for­mu­lated with a blue pig­ment to keep colour vi­brant and never ashy. YSL Beauté Touche Éclat Le Teint ($64) bot­tles the glow of the brand’s high­lighter as well as its Anti-Fa­tigue Com­plex to keep your skin look­ing alive, even when you might not be feel­ing it. (Hi, Mon­day.) And if your skin tends to change colour a lit­tle with the sea­sons, there’s The Body Shop Shade Ad­just­ing Drops ($22 each). This prod­uct light­ens or dark­ens your foun­da­tion by half a shade per drop so you don’t have to go through that tricky buy­ing process all over again. For de­tails, see Shop­ping Guide.
