NARS pure radiant tinted moisturizer has been my current go-to for my substitute for foundation. I say substitute because as you probably already know, tinted moisturizers aren’t as full coverage, or heavy as foundation. I prefer to wear a tinted moisturizer on a day to day basis. This tinted moisturizer has SPF 30 so it is great to wear during the day. I love it because it’s light to medium coverage depending on if you want to build it up or not. It gives me a healthy glow while still being able to see my skin peak through. I wear the shade St. Moritz to match it to my skin tone on my face that is naturally lighter than my body and I’ll darken it up with bronzer. My darkest shade is Seychelles.
Too Faced is one of my favorite brands! Partly, because I love their packaging, but that’s besides the point. Bronzer makes such a difference to your makeup routine because it brings back all the life and definition to your face after foundation. I rotate through two bronzers, MAC mineralize skin finish in ‘Give me sun’ and this chocolate soleil bronzer in shade medium-deep. It’s matte and smells like chocolate – literally. This bronzer hasn’t left my purse this week for good reason. It’s smooth and blends so easily when I apply it, leaving a nice base for my other powders. This is my go-to bronzer when I want more of a skin tone bronze that is brown rather than tan. When I want to look tan and sunkissed I’ll reach for the MAC bronzer I mentioned above.
