Hello my loves! Happy first day of Spring! I’m just sitting here in New York City praying that Spring actually visits us sometime in the near future. We are expecting a snow storm tomorrow and it’s freezing outside, and I am in need of some serious sunshine in my life.
However, because the sunshine has been substantially absent from my everyday life for the past few months, I have discovered the best foundation combo. It makes my skin look like it has been kissed by the sunshine gods. The best part about this combo is that it’s from the drugstore and is super affordable! I have insanely dry skin so honestly I struggle with finding foundations that make me look dewy or glowy. When I discovered this combo last month I was so excited!! I have been wearing it non stop as my everyday foundation.
I’m talking about the L’Oréal Pro Glow foundation, mixed with the L’Oréal Glotion. This combo makes my skin look like I’ve just drank an abundance of water and sat in the sun for an hour! I am officially obsessed you guys. I can’t stop wearing the two mixed together.
The L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation is only $12.50 and claims to provide 24 hours of glowing skin. I usually apply this at 10am or so and don’t take it off until around 10pm and in those 12 hours it definitely doesn’t budge or slip on my face at all. It’s described as a medium coverage foundation, best for normal to dry skin and I completely agree.
The product I mix it with is the L’Oreal True Match LUMI Glotion. It costs $14.99 and I am using the shade 901 ‘Fair Glow’. It claims to hydrate and illuminate your skin for an all over fresh and natural glow. That is the thing I love most about this product; I feel like I’m glowing from within. Especially in these harsh winter months, my skin becomes so dull and this product has been my secret weapon to looking hydrated and glowy. I actually cannot wait until spring so I can try the more bronzey shade in this collection and look super sunkissed and illuminated.
I absolutely love mixing these two products together, it gives my skin the perfect about of coverage and glow. I use a foundation brush and put a drop on each onto it and paint it onto my face. Then I use a damp Real Techniques perfecting sponge to give it an extra flawless, dewy finish.
Thank you all for reading and comment below your current favorite foundation! I am always looking to try something new.
