Summer Base Solution! Chantecaille Compact Makeup
I don't know about you, but I cannot go out without wearing some type of base makeup! I truly feel my best when I know my skin is more even and looking great! So the hot, humid summer months always present a challenge for me! I do wear tinted moisturizer most of the time, but I still find that I can feel it on my skin once the humidity strikes. The solution? Chantecaille Compact Makeup.
I am not one to wear powder foundation. I don't like the powdery or matte look, and prefer my skin to look luminous. This powder from Chantecaille manages the impossible task of good coverage in a lightweight powder form without looking cakey or too matte! Firstly, the texture of this powder is unlike anything I have ever felt before. It feels like silk! I apply this with a buffing brush and brush a small amount all over my face, after concealer, to achieve a flawless finish. The coverage is medium, and can be sheered out or applied more heavily in areas desired. Since the powder is so fine, it does not build up on the skin to cause cakiness or a heavily powdered look!
After a few hours of wear the finish is dewy and extremely natural looking. It lasts all day, and feels amazing on the skin! I find this the easiest, quickest way to get out of the house with good coverage that feels great in hot, humid weather! I have also used this as a setting powder over tinted moisturizer and foundation, and the finish is equally flawless! For reference, I wear this in the shade Camel.
This compact has been my skin saver over the past few heat waves in NYC! For someone who typically does not like powder foundation, I was surprised by how much I love this powder. It is holy grail material for me, and something I will always have in my collection! If you are looking for another way to get quick coverage in the summer that doesn't feel heavy or sticky I highly recommend you check out the Chantecaille Compact Makeup! It retails for $62.
