I love answering all your questions especially with regards to makeup. Following up from last week, we have another frequently asked question that most of my followers are asking. This question came from Instagram:

@gsdagatha: Hi Jake, what’s a good foundation that I can use?

There is a plethora of foundations that you could use, but choosing the perfect one for your skin is a different story. I personally love Make Up For Ever’s newest foundation: Water Blend.

Water Blend is a new face and body foundation formula that is hydrating, waterproof, and transfer-proof, as well as quick and easy to apply. Designed by Make Up For Ever Founder and artistic director Dany Sanz, this new product naturally fits the frenetic lifestyles of dancers, models, and artists all over the world, who are always pushing the limits of makeup while submitting their bodies to the most extreme training conditions.

No transfer and waterproof

The main accomplishment of the Water Blend formula lies in reconciling two key benefits: non-transferability and resistance to water. Water Blend meets this challenge thanks to the resistance-boosting coating used on the micro-pigments contained in its formula. These qualities ensure Water Blend’s long-lasting performance.

A natural and hydrating sheer foundation

Water Blend’s unique and patented formula offers hydrating properties. Its composition is packed with 80% vitamin-enriched water. This is the secret to its light texture and unique feel. Enriched with moisturizing pro-vitamin B5, this product enhances dull-looking skin, restoring its radiance and suppleness for a glowing complexion.

Water Blend comes in 20 shades that deliver subtle results, suitable both for the face and the rest of the body. Ensuring an optimal finish, the micro-pigments contained in the composition offer a sheer satiny look that creates the illusion of better-than-bare, makeup-free skin.

Customized results in a single step

Its fluid texture makes it easier to adjust to your desired coverage through the application of successive layers. From its gel-water form inside the bottle, it melts into the skin instantly upon application. Once it becomes liquid, it is supple and easy to work with.

Step by step application

Now that we’ve got the right foundation, it’s time to apply it. Don’t worry because I’ll give you a step-by-step guide on how to use Water Blend with the Press N’ Roll routine:

Dispense foundation onto the upper side of your hand and gather it with the help of the Ellipse Sponge.

Apply the foundation following the Press N’ Roll routine: press the flat surface of the sponge against the skin then roll it to evenly deposit foundation from the center of the face outwards.

Start at the nose and blend with outward strokes towards the cheeks. Then apply product from the chin towards the jawline.

Finish at the forehead, making sure to blend the product along the hairline.

For more effective usage

Before you go ahead and try their newest foundation, here are some pro-tips for you:

• For a more satiny smooth effect, slightly moisten the sponge before applying Water Blend

• For longer-wearing results, moisten the sponge with Mist & Fix (2 sprays, 30 cm away) before applying foundation

• For more coverage, use a fully dry sponge to perform the Press N’ Roll routine
