Whenever I think my skin has reached its acne pinnacle, it goes and surpasses my expectations! Today I woke up and wondered if maybe someone had spiked my face wash with male hormones. What? You never know!
Anyway, I have dinner after work and unlike darting around at an event or a party, sitting across the table from someone really puts bad skin on display. For nights like these, my face needs next-level coverage. Here's what I use:
Correction: IT Cosmetics by Jamie Kern are mistakenly referred to as Jane Iredale.
"Did you have your makeup done professionally?" asked Corynne when I was finished. The same Corynne who once compared my Kenzo shoes to lucite stripper heels. This woman is uncensored and so her compliments are extra valuable.
Giogrio Armani Face Fabric Foundation, $49: If you spend on only one makeup item, this stuff is well worth the investment.
It Cosmetics by Janie Kern Dual Powder Brush, $48: Unlike a flat foundation brush, a powder brush creates a really even airbrushed finish.
Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Concealer, $22: Strong enough to hide a tattoo without looking cakey, this cover-up is perfect for severe under eye circles and blemishes.
IT Cosmetics by Jamie Kern Bye Bye Pores, $24: A really fine translucent powder that sops up excess shine and never looks obvious.
IT Cosmetics by Jamie Kern Jumbo Powder Brush, $58: The fluffiest, more indulgent brush I've tried. It's expensive yes, but when cared for correctly, brushes can last forever.
Now since I never tire of talking about acne, what do you use to cover yours?
