Hylamide Photography Foundation
I had the opportunity to try out Hylamide's latest make up innovation. Say hello to Hylamide's Photography Foundation. These products are sort of becoming a staple in the market since there are still a numerous percentage of consumers who embrace the no make-up make up look. I honestly don't fall into that category as I opt more for perfected coverage as opposed to BB creamed luminous-can-still-see-your-freckles-coverage. If you're gonna wear make-up anyways , why not go full on? But my mantra is to always explore and be open so here I am trying a new routine.
So the make up is a bit fluid and watery , kind of like a serum and lotion. There are tiny specks of illuminators which I presume work as a light-reflecting medium. Since the foundation is a sheer , bare coverage one, it uses the photo-reflectors to somehow lessen the appearance of lines, blemishes and spots. I love the feel of it and I wouldn't mind it actually to be my primer/ base or a mixing medium for my existing foundations especially the non-touring trend has arrived. I will be posting photos soon on how I wear them. Hylamide sent me the transparent foundation and the golden tan shade for me to try and if my photos can justify their actual appearance, you can see the specks and illuminators present. The finish? It's very natural to satin dewy so I would be dusting it off with a powder to kill the excess shine but other than that this is a good base if you want to have that weekend breather from make up. These innovative products are enjoyable to use and I only have good things to say about the brand in general. So far, all of their products work like magic and I would always recommend it to customers since I work in a beauty / pharmacy store.
