With a wide variety of makeup bases in the market, we understand that some of you may be pondering the differences between cushion, powder and liquid foundations. But fret not because we have the answers you need!
Compact foundations are packaged in a compact case with a little mirror and sponge applicator. Loved for their convenience and portability, they are perfect for touch-ups on the go. Apart from their ease of use, compact foundations also provide high coverage and a smooth finish, leaving your skin looking naturally radiant and smooth.
On the other hand, liquid foundations are often a water-in-silicone mixture, most of them are formulated with additional skincare ingredients, like built-in moisturiser, hyaluronic acid, or SPF, which help to keep your skin hydrated and protected at all times.
At Clarins, our mission is to provide high-quality beauty products with skincare benefits, which is why our foundations contain botanical ingredients that pamper and nourish the skin, while also catering to your makeup needs.
The sun is one of the main sources of premature skin ageing, causing fine lines and wrinkles to develop from an early age. That’s why SPF-infused liquid foundations are a brilliant choice, as they help to shield the skin against UV rays and prevent the formation of dark spots, wrinkles and other blemishes.
If you’re shopping for a liquid foundation with sun protection benefits, look no further than the Clarins’ Skin Illusion Foundation SPF15. This liquid foundation blends in easily with long-lasting coverage to diminish the appearance of acne scars, dark spots, wrinkles and other blemishes, while protecting your skin from the sun. Its lightweight formula is non-comedogenic, making it extremely easy to blend and layer over. You’ll never have to worry about it caking up or clogging your pores.
If you’re looking for compact foundations with SPF, you’re in luck. Meet the Clarins Everlasting Cushion Foundation SPF 50 PA+++, infused with SPF protection to shield your precious skin from the sun’s harsh UV rays. Unprotected exposure to the sun can cause fine lines and dark spots over time, so it’s always a good choice to use a make-up base with sun protection.
Customers also love the Bright Plus Brightening Cushion Foundation SPF 50/PA+++ Refill, a skin-brightening cushion foundation that provides a fresh, natural-looking finish for all skin types. Rose-myrtle and Acerola Seed extracts help oxygenate the skin to give you a dewy glow, while SPF 50 also protects your complexion against harmful UV rays. This foundation delivers smooth coverage with each pat, camouflaging dark spots and giving your skin that radiant glow.
Selecting the right shade of foundation is one of the most important steps. To do that, you’ll need to identify your undertone simply by looking at the veins on your wrist. If they seem greenish, you have a warm undertone, so you can opt for foundations with golden or yellowish hues. If your veins appear blue, that means you have a cool undertone, and should go for foundations with a bluish or pink base.
