Because your foundation should look like skin, not makeup

Finding the perfect foundation can be as challenging (and frustrating) as shopping for jeans or a bathing suit—and once we find the right color and coverage, many of us stock up and stick with it for the long-term. But just as makeup trends evolve, so does cosmetic technology, and what once looked flawless can begin to look heavy and dated.

Enter cushion compact foundations… Designed to deliver buildable coverage that still looks like skin thanks to a dewy, radiant finish, AmorePacific’s version has become my go-to formulation, but there’s a new cushion compact kid on the block from M.A.C.

The Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact recently launched with 12 shades plus a dual-fiber brush that ensures a flawless finish AND the coordinating Matchmaker Concealer. I’m particularly excited about this because this moisturizing stick provides long wear and it’s even (supposed to be) immune to humidity, which will come in handy in South Florida come summer.

These are definitely on my to-try list, as M.A.C. never disappoints. Have any of you tried it yet?
