A new revamp on a massive hit in the cosmetic world is the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation* which I recently reviewed here. The original formula was a stinker for me, leaving my skin looking (and feeling) dry and nothing near ‘HD” but thankfully this rebooted edition is nourishing, smoothing and next to invisible as it claims! This could easily be my day to day foundation as well as built up a bit for special occasions and nights out.
When it comes to concealing, the ever versatile and uniquely formulated Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer gets plenty of kudos. This super pigmented pot of goodness packs a serious punch – a tiny grain of rice sized smear of this could cover a multitude of sins, and can be mixed with primer, moisturizer or a sheer foundation to up the ante. I can see why makeup artists want to pack this in their kits; The tiny pot makes it the ultimate portable product and the shade range is expansive.
Another backstage long time favourite is the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage* – which I always assumed was much too dry until I actually got my hands on it to try. Turned out this product can be warmed up and then mixed for the perfect tone to cover blemishes, small scars, pigmentation etc. I love that one side is more yellow based, while the other is slightly pinker, giving you the ability to mix and blend to your heart’s content! The product inside is pigmented enough that a tiny dab will easily pinpoint conceal, meaning I can see this lasting me a very, very long time.
