Meet MAKE UP FOR EVER Water Blend Foundation ($54). I love this foundation. This one’s a keeper for sure. It’s a water based formula that applies sheer and dewy, but is a champ at longevity. This is waterproof and transfer-proof for beautiful skin from the moment you apply until you take it off.
Yes, it is sheer, so it is definitely what I would wear on a good skin day when I don’t have many skin issues to address, i.e., cover. It does easily build coverage through thin layers, and by doing so I can cover broken capillaries around my nose and on my cheeks. Under eyes and breakouts definitely need a separate concealer. My shade is a mix of Y405 and Y415, but if in a pinch Y405 would be a better choice.
I think this is a winner, if you’re looking to refine skin that only has minor issues. It photographs beautifully and the lasting power is excellent. If you’re looking for medium-to-full coverage, keep looking.
