As seen in Tyra Banks Website: Best Foundation
If you want the ethereal glow that only luxe foundations can give, Sherri Jessee, professional makeup artist, gives tips to get you there. She lists her favorite liquid foundation, two compact foundations and an airbrush system to get you looking like a glamazon. You can now live without the fear that your foundation will smudge or fade away before the party's over.
Smashbox High Definition FX Foundation SPF 15 is Jessee's favorite light-reflecting liquid foundation and is easy to use, she says. "For best results, prime the skin with photo-finish foundation primer and use foundation brush No. 13 to build coverage where needed," Jessee says. Available in 13 shades that can be blended to suit honeys of all color, this lightweight and oil-free foundation was the Best of Sephora Award Nominee for Best Foundation.
MAC Mineralize Foundation is a "rich, creamy compact foundation, which provides buildable coverage and is lightweight and silky to the touch. So easy to apply with a No. 130 Short Duo Fibre Brush by MAC," says Jessee. This loose powder foundation is lightweight and uses the power of minerals to stay long-lasting, even as you dance through the night. The blend of moisturizers help create a smooth, luxe look that gives the illusion you were born blessed with flawless skin.
L'Oreal True Match Blendable Foundation "goes on like a liquid but with the convenience of a compact for a flawless, natural coverage," Jessee notes. As the name says, True Match is easily blendable for a flawless, air-brushed look. With 24 colors to chose from, you're sure to find the perfect shade for you. If not, you can always create a 100-percent match by blending different shades. Made in Paris, this beauty-on-a-budget buy contains micro-fine optical pearls to hide imperfections, moisturizing glycerin, and vitamins B and E to nourish your skin and make it shine.
Available in five colors, the Temptu Air pod Foundation is designed for professional-quality airbrush results for people who aren't professionals. The Temptu Airbrush Makeup System provides precise makeup application and is mess proof. That means that fine lines, wrinkles, dark pigmentation and blemishes are blasted away, while moisturizers help hydrate the skin. The result is truly perfected skin. "For the longest lasting best coverage, go to Temptu airbrush system for buildable, breathable coverage," says Jessee.
