I’m on the constant hunt to find a foundation that doesn’t look like I’m wearing foundation.  So no makeup, makeup is what I want.  But I still want coverage to coverup my flaws, but still making me looking natural.  I also want my makeup to last all day with very little touching up.  That’s hard to find, until now.  I tried Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer Water and Studio Skin Foundation.  I love them both so much.  I did the ultimate test, I wore the foundation to a workout.  I know this is a huge no no but I wanted to see how well it would stand up (usually I’m bare-faced when working out).  The workout was hard, it was TRX and was an intense hour, my muscles are still sore from 5 days ago.
