The skin stimulator

The formula melts into skin to deliver a healthy-looking radiance. The six shades have been especially created for Asian women.
The tone corrector
This Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation does a lot more than just camouflaging imperfections and uneven skin tone. It’s packed with supercharged ingredients including lychee, bamboo grass and cordyceps mushroom (a powerful tonic used in traditional Chinese medicine), which work together to firm facial contours. It also has SPF 25 protection, making a great everyday go-to.
Don’t be fooled by the featherweight formula, a little goes a long way with this liquid foundation. The addition of a sebum-controlling active in the Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation delivers a gorgeous matte finish, while hydrophilic agents help control the affects of humidity and heat on your foundation coverage.
The line smoother
The lightweight texture of By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Wrinkle Control Serum Foundation boasts a blend of high performing anti-agers to tighten skin, smooth fine lines and even out skin tone. Despite its serum-like consistency, expect a full coverage, matte result.
The imperfection concealer
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer is a double-duty beauty wonder that delivers 12 hours of wear. Dab the applicator onto blemishes and under eyes to conceal before blending in for covert all-over coverage. The addition of dual-sphere particles allows the formula to adapt to different skin conditions.
