There are only a handful of times each year that I find myself wearing foundation. While I’m usually content with swiping some vegan-friendly mineral powder (jane iredale is my favorite) over my face and calling it a day, the fast-approaching wedding in which I’m a bridesmaid will be one of those rare occasions when I will take it a step further and apply some liquid magic. I didn’t have to look far in my search for a foundation that will stay put and look great from the pre-wedding photo shoot to the late night dancing: I’ll be turning to one of my favorite cosmetics brands, Ecco Bella, and its FlowerColor Natural Liquid Foundation with SPF 15 (1 oz., $25.95, eccobella.com).
Ecco Bella has become a go-to brand in my eco-beauty routine. Its products are cruelty-free, vegan, and free of genetically-modified ingredients, dyes and parabens. Plus, they’re effective. I like the foundation because it doesn’t feel cakey or look obvious. Instead, it smooths out my skin tone and makes my skin appear flawless in a more natural-looking way. It contains UVA and UVB sunscreen, which is a must for an outdoor summer wedding, as well as a plethora of other natural ingredients my skin appreciates, from aloe vera and vitamin E to antioxidants.
Topped with a light dusting of my trusty jane iredale powder, my face might just be wedding ready.
