My fashionsitas, everyone aspires to pack light for a holiday. Some voyageurs are successful, others can’t help but bring everything and the entire collection from Sephora-haul. We all take different approaches. Some downsize their luggage forcing themselves to carry less. Some focus on clothing, others on toiletries. Some use technology to replace physical objects. Every one has great advice. One of the many techniques I stick to follow is to pack my make-up and toiletries kit super light. This time round on my vacation in Hawaii, I am simply depending on the shampoo, shower gel etc. provided by the luxurious resorts we are staying at, however, for make-up, I had to bring along some of my essentials. One hero product is this new foundation + concealer two-in-one by Clinique, a little goes a long way. One dip does your entire face..imperfections are covered, and skin even out to the finest. Even great under eyes as concealer. What I liked most is, it’s not too dry and not too oily as I have combination skin. I have been using Clinique’s other products since I was 17. I have my favourites especially their 3 skin formula skin care kit, chubby stick and mascaras. I have used their compact and foundation before as I was given samples to try out on various promotional offers. So when I was given a sample to try on of this new best seller, I was like ”magic!” This lives upto its name to the fullest- truly two-in-one and goes on with a flawless finish, and the coverage is amazing. I highly recommend this foundation and no, I’m not paid to write this.
This would be perfect to use when on holidays as you won’t like to carry too many products, this will serve you multi-ways. Also, I think this is quite handy for beach appropriate make-up as you wouldn’t like your face to be caked up with layers of primer, foundation, concealer, translucent powder and what not that will eventually roll down your face during the day, thanks to humidity! Just get yourself this one product for the base make-up, a couple of lipsticks or lip glosses, a voluminous mascara and a few bright eye shadows such as turquoise blue, sea green, lavender and your face is beach-ready! Purchased at Boots in Bond Street, the expert there were very helpful to give me a great color match. Always love the managers and consultants at Clinique counter.
Why it is beyond perfecting?
A foundation-and-concealer in one for a natural, beyond perfected look that lasts all day. Lightweight, moisturizing makeup covers thoroughly without clogging pores. Skin breathes comfortably, colour stays true, even through sweat and humidity.Due to the rich pigment level that enhances this flawless coverage makeup, shades may appear deeper when first applied.
Top tip: Leave the foundation to settle just for a few minutes, this will allow the high pigment in the formula to adapt to your skin tone which is why you get such a flawless perfected finish. Suitable for ALL skin types!!!
How to apply to get the best result:
Using the large backside of the wand, sweep foundation across your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then use the angled tip of the applicator – that has a slight dip in it to hold more product – to cover down the bridge of the nose and across the jawline. Blend well with fingers.
Finish by using the pointy tip to spot conceal any trouble areas – under the eyes, around the outside of the nose, on top of blemishes. Pat and blend well with fingers.
I’m a big fan of objects and items that can perform a double duty and this surely is one such make-up must-have for travelling light.
