Finding a good foundation is akin to the holy grail of makeup. It’s generally acknowledged that the crème de la crème of foundations are Italian or French made, with Giorgio Armani and Chanel at the forefront for the best formulations.
Chanel’s Vitalumière has long held a devout following for it’s hydrating, light yet long lasting formula and Perfection Lumière is a fabulous addition to their repertoire. Whilst dewy skin looks beautiful in photographs and on the runaway, I’ve always found that a matte finish is a lot more practical and flattering for every day life. The difficulty however has always been finding the fine balance between a matte finish and one that appears drying or cakey after a few hours.
