It ’s now of f icia l. Gone are the days when your complexion was subject to an either/ or dilemma. We’ve since ushered in a brand new era in which one drop can last you forever – well, at least for hours – and feels and looks next to nothing at all on your skin. Once, we likened the magic of great foundations to that of slipping on silk
stockings. Now it is only going to get better. One for working with his bare hands, make-up maestro François Nars created an unprecedented foundation formula with his All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. It does exactly Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, RM181
MUST-HAVES what the name touts: a tall order, in terms of coverage and weightlessness, but a change in perception made this possible. Instead of focusing on masking imperfections, the science was all in discovering skin differentiation. Nars did away with the conventional blue, yellow, and purple colour-correcting pigments, and instead used gold and green for a luminous and even-toned touch. This even-tone technology helps brighten the complexion and even prevents the formation of dark spots, but it is really the weightless long-wear technology that seals the deal. A special pigment discovered in Japan gives the foundation an inimitable feeling “like air”, and no one else in the beauty business has this polymer technology. All you need is one drop gently warmed between the palms and
spread over the face for up to 16 hours of flawless coverage. Dior has also introduced a revolutionary serum-foundation that in one drop can breathe oxygen into the skin, thanks to the Oxygen Activ technology. This combines plant oils, vitamins, and minerals to revitalise the complexion from within. After all, foundation is no longer just about lasting coverage – it is about caring for the skin, too. So let the dropper give you the exact amount you need to render an utterly fresh,
bare-skinned finish that will last from day to night. But if old habits die hard (and you are one for application tools) then consider another make-up guru’s proposition. Laura Mercier’s story began with silk – to be precise, the different textures the luxurious fabric can embody. Her Silk Crème Photo Foundation was a trade secret, beautifying many famous chiselled faces at photo shoots and red-carpet events with just one drop. Now it also comes in a moisturising formula that gives you a flawless finish. If it can stand the heat of flashing lightbulbs and
glaring spotlights, daily perfection will be a breeze.
