I was on the search for the perfect powder foundation. There are so many times when I just do not want to do the whole liquid foundation thing. And my skin is in pretty good condition that I can throw on a powder foundation and if it has enough coverage, cover just some spots I need covered while still having it be as light as I want it everywhere else. I found that foundation. It is IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation and their Celebration Foundation Illumination form too. Both of these are the ABSOLUTE BEST POWDER FOUNDATIONS I HAVE EVER USED AND WILL LIKELY EVER ENCOUNTER.
Why? Well, there is coverage. This foundation has excellent full coverage with just one swipe of a brush. Just one. I am serious. Two, it has excellent pigmentation. The coverage goes along with the pigmentation in that this is not only full coverage but it literally erases and covers and acts like your own skin. Three it blends beautifully with the skin without even having to try. You brush it on and it blends easily into the skin with the swipe of a brush or two.
If you are looking for a more matte effect, use the regular Celebration Foundation. It has a regular finish and with full coverage and is an anti-aging hydrating powder foundation that truly gives you the flawless, airbrushed complexion in no time. I mean it will take you about 1 minute tops to get your foundation done compared to 5 minutes. It delivers highly pigmented perfect coverage that never creases or cracks and is designed to not only cover, but to make your skin appear younger at the same time. The Anti-Aging technology in this formula blurs away pores, fine lines and imperfections giving you a flawless airbrush finish that looks and feels like silk. It absorbs oil and shine without settling into lines and wrinkles. This foundation was developed with leading plastic surgeons and infused with Anti-Aging ingredients such as Hydrolyzed Collagen, Peptides, Antioxidants, Grape Seed, Olive, Hyaluronic Acid, Rose, Aloe, Niacin, Silk and Vitamins A, C, and E. This Anti-Aging foundation treats skin with Anti-Aging benefits resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion. It's hydrating, full coverage and crease-proof, glides on easily and lasts all day. Specially formulated without Talc, Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Synthetic Fragrance and Phthalates. Does this sound like the perfect foundation or what?
How to apply: allow your skincare and primer to fully dry before applying. Swirl your favorite IT Cosmetics brush into the compact, then buff onto the skin. Repeat for additional coverage. Buff in circular sweeping motions, then down and outward for natural looking results.
