As I’ve mentioned before, I was a Beauty Editor at InStyle for years and it has taken me a while to rediscover any kind of girlie fascination with makeup after being buried in creams, potions and lipsticks so long (You’re soaking in it!, I’d laugh to myself…) I pretty much said goodbye to all that and moved over to Men’s Health to focus on abs and power foods and thought I’d never look back. That said, every so often – and these moments are few and far between – I stumble upon a beauty product that makes me a believer again, and when I do I want to tell you about it (sorry male readers – this post is probably not for you.) Here goes: Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15 rocks. I just got it and I’m impressed. It doesn’t look like war paint when I put it on, and it gives my skin a dewy and smooth super-even look. (I wear Natural Tan, in case you’re wondering.) I’m not at all into heavy makeup and this is the first foundation I’ve used that does not feel or look like a mask. In fact, I feel downright fresh-faced when I wear it. And those crazy circles under my eyes that appear when stress and deadlines come together to create a perfect storm of puffy redness? It tackles ’em! So here’s to you, Bobbi. You’ve brought me around. In fact, I think I’m in love.
What do you love? What really works for you? There’s a lot of snake oil out there so if you’ve found something that rises above, tell tell tell. Thanks guys! xxoo Steph
