The latest foundations offer flawless and pore-blurring coverage, while infusing skin with antioxidants, hydration and vitamins.
Gucci Beauty Cushion De Beauté
Encased in a pastel pink compact emblazoned with a lion surrounded by a wreath of flowers, the new Gucci cushion compact is anti-blue light, thanks to the infusion of titanium dioxide. High reflection index oils and mineral powders maximise light reflection on skin for luminosity. A thin layer locks in moisture, thanks to a complex of glycol and glycerine. The result: a natural finish that resembles real, flawless skin.
Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion
Sulwhasoo upgrades its cushion with new technology that adapts to mask-wearing needs of long-lasting coverage, breathability and reduced transfer on masks. Inspired by the traditional thin Korean Hanji paper, it features a gossamer, breathable powder that leaves skin refreshed all day. The brand’s JAUM Activator also hydrates skin, while a Nano Emulsion Technology softens skin for an even application.
Sisley Phyto-Teint Nude
For fans of the barely there look, Sisley’s latest foundation pairs skincare with make-up to keep skin looking dewy as it minimises the appearance of blemishes. Transparent smoothing microspheres diffuse light, while coated talc and hectorite gel smooth skin. Hyaluronic acid and konjac lock in water already present in the dermis and an Aqua-Lock complex attracts more moisture to skin.
Clinique Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation
No more clogging your pores with foundation as this is formulated with three serum technologies, including a smoothing and radiance complex that features the chemical exfoliant of salicylic acid. Vitamin derivatives treat dark spots, caffeine plumps skin, while vitamin E sustains moisture levels. Boasting a satin matte finish with buildable medium coverage, it’s skincare in your shade.
Chantecaille Future Skin Cushion Skincare Foundation
The fresh water-based foundation contains botanical ingredients, such as a peptide stem cell extract that softens fine lines, and sugars to smooth and defend skin against pollutants. Mist the puff and stipple onto skin for lighter coverage or press and roll for fuller coverage. Each purchase equates to one milk bottle donated to an orphaned baby elephant rescued by the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
