You want beautiful, even skin tone. You have tried stick foundation, but it is too heavy and it cakes. You have tried powder but it makes you look too chalky. You are looking for something light, that blends easily and gives you a natural, even finish. Liquid makeup may be just what you need. You can find liquid foundations that give you great coverage without a grand price tag. Your drugstore carries liquid makeup that is light on your skin and light on your wallet.
Your Skin Will Drink It Up
Liquid makeup, or liquid foundation, can be good for your skin. A good water-based foundation contains vitamins like C and E. Vitamin C is good for fighting free radicals. It also helps stimulate skin renewal and collagen. More collagen means fewer wrinkles and fine lines. Vitamin E helps repair damage to the skin. It also helps skin retain moisture.

It is Easy to Be True
L'Oreal uses the patented True Match technology to help you find the right shade. This technology is designed to match the tone and texture of your skin. The result is that the foundation gives you a more natural finish. You can build the product to create the desired amount of coverage. The formula can be applied with your fingers, a wedge sponge or a foundation brush.
The Best Way to True Match
When applying any liquid foundation, follow a few simple steps to get the best coverage. When applying with your fingers, make sure your hands are clean and free of any oils. Start with small amounts of foundation and apply using even strokes toward your jaw line. When using a sponge, start with small amounts and blend, but don't rub. A foundation brush will help you get the most even coverage; the coverage will look smoother and have a little more weight. With any of these techniques, make sure you blend all the way to the hair and jaw line. You don't want to look like you are wearing a mask, so blend, blend, blend.
