For the final week of 2014, the members of Makeup Wars challenged each other to pick just one item out of three categories that was their absolute favorite of 2014. The first day is Foundation – and I’ve already lost the challenge, because I use two foundations that I mix together to get my perfect color and consistency – IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ in Light and IT Cosmetics IT-O2 Ultra Repair Liquid Oxygen Foundation in Fair. I have previously been provided samples from IT Cosmetics for both of these foundations, but I have repurchased them several times in the past year! I like to pick them up when beauty.com or ULTA does their 20% off coupons.
I’ve always been in-between shades with IT Cosmetics… Light is too dark and Fair is too light. So I was already mixing Fair and Light in my IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+, so when I ran out of Fair I reached for the IT Cosmetics IT-O2 Ultra Repair Liquid Oxygen Foundation in Fair instead.
I loved the result of blending these two foundations together! The coverage of the CC+ Cream is more like a foundation to me than a real CC Cream, so adding the lighter weight foundation to it made it blend even more seamlessly into my skin, especially when I use my new Velvet Luxe LBD Foundation Brush by IT Cosmetics for ULTA!
What’s your favorite foundation? Let me know in the comments, and be sure to check out the rest of the Makeup Wars posts below!
