Foundation.....I'm talking about the stuff that goes on your face. Nothing to do with buildings or anything remotely intellectual. But the hunt for a good foundation is the bane of my life at the moment. After watching 6 Lisa Eldrige videos on choosing the right foundations in one seating, I realized I did EVERYTHING wrong. Let's break it down.
1) buying from online sites without trying it on. #MajorFail.
2) trying it on at the beauty counter under artificial lighting. #AnotherFail. Little wonder why my super expensive Chanel Aqua vitalumiere liquid foundation looked a shade darker when I brought my little bottle home.
3) did not get a sample and trying it at home. #UltimateFail
So far, I have tons of mistakes in my bathroom with various near full bottles of foundations that are a shade darker/lighter, horrible consistency....etc. In fact, last week, I decided to perch my patootie on stool at the Chanel counter while the moody make up artist worked on my face. Result? I may have a future being a geisha.
This obsessive compulsion came out of nowhere as I rarely wear foundation. Don't get me started on a primer cos that ain't gonna happen seeing that I can't even get the foundation of my make up routine right (pun definitely intended). After spending decades (4 to be exact) sleeping on one side, it's not surprising that one side of my face has pores the size of mini craters while the other look fairly decent. I was hoping a good foundation would at least fill up the trenches and give me a dewy AND even complexion.
What's your favorite foundation? What's working for you now? Or is it unnecessary? Anyone?? Help???
