Considering that many of us wear a full face of makeup almost daily and for at least 10 hours each time, we should ensure that our makeup cares for our skin too. Base makeup, especially foundations, now contain everything from anti-ageing ceramides to moisture-attracting humectants to keep your complexion flawless and smooth.
The lightweight formula delivers a second-skin finish, so you look like you, just better. Best bit? This foundation-concealer in one is all you need to even out skin tone as well as unsightly dark circles. Comes in 12 shades.
Available at the Chantecaille counter, Takashimaya D.S.
