The demand for state-of-the-art foundations which provide flawless and long-lasting coverage is forever mounting as we grapple with our hectic work schedules and busy social lives. Piling as much on as possible in the hope that it stays in place beyond the working day doesn't really work and can often create an unflattering effect.
The quest for the best foundations
that will leave skin glowing isn’t easy. It can be especially difficult to find the perfect foundation as the seasons change. In summer, foundations are likely to smear off due to heat and humidity while winter’s harsh conditions can create a dry and flaky surface for your make-up to sit on.
That’s why we asked our beauty team to pick their selection of the best foundations
that provide long-lasting coverage, whatever the weather.
Like YSL Fusion Ink Foundation
, the first foundation designed to beat the heat and last a full 24 hours. Built with technology that was originally designed to capture dust particles in outer space, this radiance boating base contains a super absorbing Lipophilic active, which holds 4x it's own weight in sebum (our own natural oils). The soft weightless texture glides on effortlessly to mattify, hydrate and ensure seriously long-lasting wear regardless of humidity, day and night.
When tested on real women, 95% admitted their skin still felt soft and comfortable after 24 hours and 100% said the long lasting coverage was so lightweight they forgot they were even wearing it.
w&h Editorial Director, Sue James, put YSL Fusion Ink Foundation to the test and here's what she had to say: 'The light mousse texture glided on easily and created an even natural cover that was so soft it felt like a second skin.' Sounds good to us!
