Ask FEMALE: How To Wear Foundation When Your Skin Just Cleared Up?

Q: “I feel insecure going out without a full face foundation on but lately, my skin seems to be looking much better than it used to, and I don’t want to mess up whatever it is I’m doing right by adding layers of makeup on my face. What would you recommend I use to cover up that doesn’t feel heavy?”

A: I get what you mean by leaving the house barefaced. But good on you for taking charge of your skin’s condition! There are many great-minimal coverage foundations out there but I’d suggest you to try using a cushion foundation. A cushion puff makes it easier for you to control the amount and distribution on your skin. Shu Uemura’s Makeup Training Manager Joyce Lee says, “This one has the same lightweight texture of the Petal Skin Liquid Foundation that’s infused with Sakura duo. It’s liquid transforms into a slightly powdery texture so you’ll get that poreless and fresh-looking matte finish.”
