When I think of long lasting foundation I think of South African air hostesses of the 80s. As I sat on a plane as a child I would be hypnotized by their thick orange make up, which would precisely stop just by the jaw line, which is never ever a good look. I would also be fascinated by the deep dehydration lines and the way their oily skin made their foundation go blotchy and cakey. The whole horrible mess would make a 24 year women look 100 years old. Even at 8, I wanted to give these women a glass of water (for the dehydration) and hose them down and start again with their make up. Beauty was in my bones even back then! My long lasting foundation phobia has now come to an end, as thank God there is a new generation of foundation you can turn to and I am loving Bobbi Brown’s Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15, £28, www.bobbibrown.co.uk.
If you have oily/ combination skin this foundation will give you a soft semi-matte finish, as it’s oil free and uses sponge like powders to help absorb excess oil, which won’t look mask like. You also won’t have to powder your nose a thousand times a day as the transfer resistant formula helps fight humidity for up to 8 hours. It also comes in 20 shades, which should be the norm but isn’t- so well done Bobbi Brown. Grab a bottle today for shine free skin that will look good even if you are sky high.
