The latest craze in foundation is the satin finish. Not quite dewy, not quite matte, satin. The look allows for a bit of a glow something similar to what you’d get after a quick run. It’s totally natural and just about every skin type can rock it.
It was also the look celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal, who celebs like Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez have called on for their signature makeup looks, created for the Tracy Reese Spring 2012 runway show. Using her Perfect Prep Poreless Primer (my FAVE primer of the moment) to prep the skin, Mally then continued with her Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation for flawless coverage, then her 24/7 Blush to create a natural flush, and set it all with her Poreless Face Defender, the world’s first clear setting powder. The finished look is pictured above and below.
You can get the look at home by following Mally’s tips, but you can also recreate it with your liquid foundation and using powder just on the T-zone to get that satin finish. Don’t forget a coral blush (the darker your skin, the brighter the blush) to create that gorgeous flushed looks all the models rocked at Tracy Reese. Since the emphasis is on the skin, you can do little else with the rest of your face—some mascara and gloss will do ya.
