My latest favorite liquid foundation to fake glowy, flawless skin? Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup.

Formulated with Retin-A, Matrixyl, Skin Tightener ST and vitamins A and E to stimulate the production of collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin texture, this foundation promises to provide super, long-lasting coverage for a luminous complexion. It comes in a 30ml bottle with a pump and is oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and contains SPF 15.

I have always loved the idea behind powder mineral foundations – their ease in application, lightweight formula and natural ingredients, seriously how can you not? But for years, I have had no luck finding the right product. Most brands either left my dehydrated combination skin dry and irritated or turned my face into a glittery disco ball. And just when I was about to give up on the search, I was introduced to London-based Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation and now I am *totally* hooked!

FACE atelier ultra foundationI first came across FACE atelier Ultra Foundation when professional makeup artist Kathy Aragon raved about it at The Artist Summit Chicago. Then I read that both Fergie, Lady Gaga and a whole lotta pros in the industry are fans so I finally gave it a shot to see what the buzz is all about.

The Ultra Foundation comes in 12 different shades along with 4 color adjusters to suit a variety of skin tones. I was sent a sample of #4 Sand, which is a yellow-based color and a decent match for my NC30 skin.
