I've been on a long hunt to find a daily cover up for my skin. I've never been interested in wearing a full foundation for an around-the-town kind of look—it's too heavy. I save that for when I go on auditions in my other life as an on-camera actor.
While I've tried a bunch of mineral foundations along the way, I've never been exactly satisfied with what I've found. Until now.
One of the benefits of being an actress is getting to meet stellar makeup artists who kindly share their secrets with you. Recently, I acted in a national commercial and the makeup artist used something new on me that I quickly fell in love with: Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. She was going for a very natural look that would allow for radiant skin, increased moisture, and covering up imperfections.
I fell in love with it and quickly snapped up a tube from Sephora. At $44, it's not cheap, but I think it's worth it, and here's why: you'll get an added boost of moisture for the day, it'll delicately cover up fine lines, it has SPF 30 built into it, it's oil-free for those of us who are acne-prone, and it goes on like nothing else. It's not goopy, it doesn't hide in wrinkles, it doesn't cake around your nose—it's perfection.
