Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup - Oh How I LOVE you!

Veil No.1 in Ivory.
When I facial tan, I use No. 2.
This make-up is amazing!  It creates a flawless illusion on my freckled Melasma riddled skin... and I LOVE it!!  The coverage is complete, but natural.  It is long lasting and absolutely LUMINOUS on!  Leaves skin looking tender, plump and radiant with very little effort.  I believe that part of the reason it does help improve appearance is because it also  is formulated with Matrixyl to stimulate the production of collagen and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Skin Tightener ST improves skin's texture and promotes younger looking skin.  Every time I use Hourglass Veil I get compliments on my complexion... (they have no idea all the imperfections that lie beneath!!).  In this look here, I lightly set the make-up with Jane Iredale's Pressed Base in Amber. Bronzed with Tarte Park Avenue Princess Matte.  This make-up is long wear and had never caused me any breakouts like so many other brands.

Now, I want to address a complaint I hear from time to time about this make-up, and that is that it separates and is watery.  This is TRUE.  I have had 4 or 5 new bottles of this and all of them did tend to separate, but a good shake puts everything back into emulsion again (in just 10 seconds).  Now, I have not asked Hourglass why this happens, but I like to think this "watery" part contains all the potent skin tighteners and lifters that tighten my pores and create that flawless finish.  Either way, PLEASE don't let it deter you from trying this extraordinary foundation.  Available at Sephora stores & Barney's New York.
