A couple of years ago I was a complete Bobbi Brown virgin, but they are now popping up in my makeup bag more and more. I’m now a sucker for their base products; foundations and concealers especially, so when I heard about this new Skin Foundation Stick I couldn’t resist!
I really adore this product and it has become a staple in my makeup bag, not only for main foundation application but also for touch ups throughout the day. It’s easy to use in a stick format, which twists up easily when you need more. I’ve found in the past with some stick foundations that they really accentuate and cling on to dry skin but with this one it blends perfectly into my skin, leaving any imperfections covered, but my skin also looking natural and not cakey at all (as you can see above).
I’m really impressed by the shade range available – from the palest ivory to darker tones there is a shade for everyone. I find getting a good foundation shade really difficult because I’m super pale, but I’m a ‘Porcelain’ in this product which is the second from lightest shade.
To apply, I simply draw lots of lines on my face, especially around nose and problem areas, and then buff into the skin with a Real Techniques or Zoeva face brush. I also think these would be perfect for contouring – as they are in stick formula, you can choose one a shade lighter and some shades darker to add some definition to your face shape.
The new Skin Foundation Stick is available for £29 from Bobbi Brown – I highly recommend!
