What if you could skip one step in your morning routine and have the same (if not better) results? If you’re not one of ‘those people’ who springs out of bed at 5 AM and has hours upon hours to dedicate to workouts, devotionals, and vegan smoothies, this could mean a lot, actually. For example: 1. One more sip of coffee, 2. One more “snooze” button, 3. One more moment to double check you’re not forgetting anything while running out the door. Not to overreach here, but if there’s even a slight chance of any of the previously mentioned statements, then count us in. The great gods of the beauty department have heeded our calls with moisturizing foundation (cue fireworks) and the getting ready game has forever been changed. Who knew something as simple as a better foundation could completely transform your beauty routine? Well, not to be snide, but we did—and we’re filling you in on all the tricks of the trade.
Moisturizing daily is key to preventing wrinkles and other signs of premature aging, and we’d be lying if we said we’d never skipped that step before out of pure laziness or lack of time (*cough* patience). By combining your moisturizer and foundation into one powerful formula, you’re providing your skin with a base that’s both hydrated and protected before heading out on your day. (Beauty gurus recommend mixing your moisturizer with your foundation before applying for a more natural finish anyway, so you’re already one step ahead!) These full-coverage favorites cover all of your bases (literally) no matter your skin type, skin tone, age or budget.
