Dear Beauty Snob,
I work in the city and have to commute from Connecticut daily. My days begin quite early (sometimes 5 am!) in order to be in the office by 7:30 so basically it is still dark when I put on my make up. My problem is my foundation and powder that seem perfect in my bathroom sometimes look too thick when I get to the office and see it in the daylight. Without resorting to washing my face at the office when this happens, what can I do?
Dear Early Riser,
We have all had the same problem at one time or another! I am sure you are still groggy at that hour and the art of blending probably escapes you! The next time you feel that your foundation or powder is too heavy, spritz it with a little water or toner (I like Shu Uemura Depsea Water toners) and lightly sponge off with a tissue. Your foundation will stay in tact but look moist and glow-y, not heavy.
