Current Obsession | Givenchy Beauty

Lets talk about every girl's morning routine...we wash our face, apply moisturizer, and then turn to what we hope is a good color matched foundation. Lets be real, finding a good color match is a pain and rarely happens, especially for a girl with olive undertones like myself.

I am half Italian and half Spanish....great combo for a tan but horrible for those winter months in which I physically turn grey. I've always had issues finding a good foundation that matches, not changes the color of my olive skin. I prefer not to look Oompa if I can avoid to! Minimal coverage is key so I've tried every tinted moisturizer, BB creams, and thin foundations out there. Fearing a makeup disaster, I recruited my sister as a second opinion and set out to test every brand possible. The Winner: Givenchy.

I mean besides the fact that it was a perfect match, what girl doesn't want to wake up and put a little Givenchy on, right? Givenchy's beauty line offers a wide range of products for every step of your beauty routine but my obsession is with their base options.

Current Obsession: Mister Mat Matifying Primer, Eclat Matissime Fluid Foundation, and Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen.

Why the obsession? Let's start with the primer...this velvety gel is a texture I've never experience before but one that I can't live without. It provides a smooth palette for your foundation while keeping you shine free all day. With this product, a little goes a long way, so apply thinly! For lightweight coverage follow up with the Eclat Matissime Fluid Foundation. This fluid foundation is available in 8 shades and features a new radiant matte finish that reveals the fine texture and glow of the skin. You'll achieve what we're all striving for, a natural yet long-lasting look. My favorite aspect is its mattifying quality, especially for the upcoming summer months! Givenchy has managed to create a foundation formulated with silica beads that absorbs sebum yet provide moisture so you'll never look dry or cakey. Finish off the look by brightening your under eyes with the Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen. This pen will be a perfect match to your foundation and blend in seamlessly.
