BASES YOU CAN BET ON:
1. YSL Touche Éclat Cushion Foundation, $99. 2. La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20, $200. 3. By Terry Wrinkle Control Serum Foundation, $174. 4. Asap Pure Skin Perfecting Mineral Foundation, $78.
Until recently, foundation has been seen as something that blocked pores, caused breakouts and didn’t allow skin to breathe, but Mccleery says today’s foundation is perfect as the final step in our skincare regimes. “It can be applied to the entire face, neck and décolletage, so it’s ideal for benefiting the skin with active ingredients,” she says.
Asap’s latest foundation includes a dose of red clover flower to reduce the appearance of pores, and grapefruit, a powerful antioxidant that boosts cell regeneration. Meanwhile, La Mer has its Miracle Broth ingredient, the elixir that powers their legendary Crème de la Mer.
