|Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation: Beige (bottom) & Honey (top)|
While I love a tinted moisturiser in summer, in winter I tend to turn to foundation. My skin tone is olive and can go very sallow in winter so I need just a bit more coverage to balance it. I’ve recently been trying out the new Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (£28) that comes with the concealer in the lid of the foundation pot – very handy and perfect for someone like me who loses everything.
It’s got something of a skincare element to it as well, containing vitamins A, C and E, along with sweet almond oil, so the blend feels very softening and hydrating on the skin. Currently, there are only 4 shades: porcelain, beige, honey and deep sand, and of course, I’m somewhere between beige and honey so I’ve been doing a lot of mixing.
When I was at the Benefit liquid foundation launch being colour-matched, the make-up artist asked me if I wanted an ‘exact match’ or a ‘warmer tone’ and I think it is the first time that I’ve ever been asked that. I never could get my head around the ‘no-foundation’ foundation – it’s a little bit ‘Emperor’s new clothes’ to me and I like my skin to look very subltly made up, not as though I’m not wearing any coverage at all! So because I have both beige and honey, I can lift my tone very slightly with careful blending and give it warmth. Of course, it is then all about the blending; I haven’t knowingly had a tide-mark for years and I’m not about to start now!
The integral concealer is in solid form but melts beautifully onto the skin – actually, it’s probably one of the best concealers I’ve used because it doesn’t do that seeping into creases thing and does give a very decent amount of camouflage, especially under the eyes.
