My makeup routine is pretty simple—tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush, a little brow, liner, mascara and lip. I can practically do it with my eyes closed, while driving, and during other various assorted activities which shall remain nameless.
When I want to really spiff it up however, I kick my makeup up a notch by using foundation. I’m proud that I take care of my skin, so I’m not in need of foundation, but foundation is a must-have when I need to look flawless. When in the presence of cameras with flashes popping off, I my fab factor depends of of being finished with an amazing foundation.
I have recently been all over Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation SPF 10 . I even find myself wanting to “cheat” with it on no-foundation days.
Before I reveal my level of love for this face-fixer foundation, here are the deets about Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation SPF 10.
