Finally Found: My Foundation Obsession

18 April

I’m a changed gal–I’m wearing foundation everyday.  Before my recent foundation discovery I was more of a once a month full coverage kind of girl (for those very special occasions a.k.a when I felt like putting a little more effort into my face).  Mainly because I don’t like anything too heavy on my skin and so instead I’d opt for tinted moisturizers with spf.  But then I discovered Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation.  I just feel so pretty when I’m wearing it that I now want to take a few extra minutes to apply every morning!  Foundation everyday makes me feel like a real mom, or adult these days.  Maybe because I am still always impressed with my mom’s ability to put on a full face of makeup and look everyday–there’s no yoga pants to run errands happening in her world.

Back to this foundation obsession, it’s checking all of my boxes: light-weight, medium/full coverage, non-cakey and non-greasy (I have combination skin by the way), long-lasting (never have to reapply) and doesn’t make me breakout.  Plus it has spf 25 which I’m big on… dual makeup and sunscreen combined.
