If You Think It's Too Much Foundation - It Is! August 31, 2018 11:20

KEEP IT REAL

The amount of foundation applied to these young women's skin in the magazines is way too much.  Are they attempting to hide something?

If you think your layer of foundation looks too thick, than it probably is.  Rather than enhancing your natural look it is distracting.  

YOUR COAT OF ARMOUR

No ones skin is perfect. It can't be.  Your skin is your natural coat of armor that tells your story.  When you completely your cover your face with foundation, the real you does not shine.

Your skin protects you from the sun, free radicals, pollution and injury.  It is is going to be slightly imperfect. 

I get that makeup artists use heavier cosmetics for film, photo shoots and  to contour facial structure,  but on a rather normal day this is not a flattering look.   

WE LOVE AN IMPERFECT ANIMAL PRINT

Come to think of it we love a good looking animal skin with slight flawless. But why have we developed such a disdain for our own skin.  Our own skin that can have visible signs of real life.

Choosing a light full face foundation to even tone or a spot treatment to cover a blemish is understandable.   But a thick layer of emulsified color looks exactly like that -- like spackle paste.

WEAR LESS & FEEL BETTER 

Caring for your skin with a weekly peel can revive your skin's natural glow, minimize some imperfections and make you feel good about wearing less makeup.

The Ellen Lange Retexturizing Peel can even skin tone, clear complexion, minimize fine lines and refine pores.  Improving your own skin is a much better look than covering your skin.
