Shu Uemura Face Architect Foundation

I often find illuminating foundations have a gorgeous radiant finish but that glow is sometimes given by a glitter particle within the foundation. This is fine for evening but during the day I prefer a subtle glow that has a satin finish, looks healthy but without the frosted finish!
This foundation gives that exact finish. A little goes a long way and this foundation is buildable so layer up depending on the coverage you want to achieve.
Macadamia seed oil gives it a rich, moisturised finish so perfect for a dry, dehydrated skin that looks dull.
Once on, it takes a few minutes to sit happily on the skin, so give it time to settle before applying other products such as powder or blusher.
As I move my skin in the light it has a healthy sheen that catches the light and makes my skin appear plumper and radiant. 
I would say this foundation would look beautiful on someone who has clear or slightly pigmented skin but for someone who has textured skin or suffers from breakouts may find these areas are highlighted by this foundation. An oily skin may also find this product too rich.
This foundation does contain Titanium dioxide but on camera it doesn't flash back on my skin.
A 27ml pump bottle is £34 and available from http://www.shuuemura.co.uk/

  1. This sounds perfect for me. I have relatively clear skin that just needs evening out,I also suffer with dry skin.

    Will have to pop into store and give this a try!
