“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” – Sophia Loren.
The “natural” look never goes out of fashion but very often, creating this look becomes quite time consuming. It’s difficult for even the most talented of make up artists to make a full-coverage foundation appear as though it’s “barely there”, while also concealing any blemishes and imperfections. Too Faced have recognised this problem and presented us with a solution; an “undetectable” medium to full coverage foundation called “Born This Way”. But, does this formula live up to the brand’s promises?
“Born This Way” is an oil-free foundation which is infused with coconut water. The coconut water, together with hyaluronic acid, hydrates the skin which helps to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance throughout the day. I definitely think that this formula helps to maintain the illusion of radiant skin, even when I am depending on buckets full of coffee to help me through the week.
As I said, the formula is oil-free so I think that this foundation would be a great choice for those with acne-prone skin. Also, the coverage is great for concealing imperfections – even acne scars.
To apply this foundation; I like to dispense the formula directly on to a flat-head brush before applying it to my face in circular motions. This helps to create a flawless, even finish. I’ve found that the formula lasts really well throughout the day, lasting up to eight hours without any noticeable fade.
Too Faced “Born This Way” foundation is available here from Debenhams in 12 different shades. The shade that I’m wearing in the picture above is “Porcelain”.
So, what do you think? Have you tried this formula? Or, do you already swear by a different medium-full coverage foundation? Let us know in the comments.
