The summer heat can sneak up on you, especially after what feels like a 30 years of winter here in Portland. Once we can string a few sunny days together, our makeup-related thoughts turn to lightweight, dewy coverage that lasts from morning meetings through happy hour or a dinner date without melting off or inexplicably disappearing altogether.
Two of our favorite new products team up perfectly to accomplish just that: Smooth + Prime and Liquid Silk Foundation. Smooth + Prime calms and prepares the complexion for long-lasting coverage that stays even and in place while minimizing afternoon oiliness. Liquid Silk Foundation shows off freckles, blurs pores, evens your skin tone and deeply moisturizes with hyaluronic acid. Sheer, flexible coverage was made for summertime.
Want to add a little extra matte to the finish? Sweep Pressed Foundation over your t-zone with the powder brush. If you’re in the mood for extra dew, finish with Radiant Finishing Powder, or try adding a few drops of your favorite moisturizing serum to your Smooth + Prime. This adds extra hydration if you have especially dry skin, but want to extend the wear and fresh finish of your makeup throughout the day.
Wonder what to pair it with? Lightweight coverage looks beautiful with our Pressed Eyeshadows. A swipe of bold color, like Siren or Dusk completes your look in three seconds flat. For a low-key, brightening neutral, try Isla or Ethereal, which doubles as a quick highlight on your brow bone, cupid’s bow, and cheekbones.
