The quest for perfect looking skin can be a difficult one. Over the past few months, I have been trying out a variety of foundations, always hoping to create that smooth canvas of skin, which every woman who wears foundation is after. Ever since hitting puberty (erm… many moons ago), my skin has been a mess and it is still a mess. I still suffer from hormonal breakouts and have little bumps on my forehead (thankfully the amount is lesser). I probably have rosacea since my cheeks and forehead are quite ruddy. Not to mention the dark undereye circles and old blemish scars too.
You see, there are many, many things to correct. Besides the discoloured and uneven skin, I have to worry about its condition as well. Not only is it dehydrated but the t-zone is rather oily. It is an arduous task to find products that can balance out all these problems and this is why I am still hunting.
Liquid foundation was a beauty product I had stayed away from for at least six years. The last time I used it, I had really bad breakouts *cough* MAC *cough*. But it could have been due to not having a double-cleansing routine at that time because oil cleansers were relatively new to the market. Liquid foundations felt heavier and rather mask-like too, so when two-way cakes (powder foundations) started picking up its popularity, I hopped on the powder train and have not looked back since. Until recently, that is.
