From work to workouts and dinner with friends, my days tend to be long and jam-packed with activity—which usually means several trips to the powder room to top up my makeup. That was until I discovered Smashbox Studio Skin Hydrating Foundation. Eager to find a foundation that would stay put through my 9-to-9, (and occasionally my 9-to-12) this fuss-free base provided not only a smooth, flawless complexion but also a long-lasting finish. I didn’t feel the need to reapply or touch up whatsoever throughout my long day (a beauty victory if there ever was one!).
Moreover, Smashbox’s foundation is sweatproof (much needed through work presentations… or a night of dancing) and humidity-resistant for 24 hours. It actually helped to control my oil and shine despite the sweltering L.A. heat. And while I’d normally expect to trade a face full of makeup for a face full of pimples, I was delightfully surprised to find that Studio Skin Foundation didn’t oxidize or cause any breakouts. I also love the fact it comes in 40 shades so I can get just the right hue to match my skin tone (which, let’s be honest, barely ever happens)! So if you’re looking for a smooth complexion all day long, stock up on this $36 gem now.
