Today, ‘nude’ doesn’t mean to put nothing on your face as foundations make our skin look flawless, even and healthy. Moreover the caring aspect of foundations is gaining in importance. We selected some foundations that are the nec plus ultra when it comes to caring, nourishing and nude look.

Subtly wrap the skin in a nude look… That was the challenge for Sisley scientists when creating the new foundation: Phyto-teint nude. Transparent smoothing microspheres with blur effect reflect the light and are complemented by coated talc and hectorite gel that smooth the skin and blur impurities. Micacrystal reflects light for a ‘natural glow’ effect. The formula also attracts and retains water in the skin for all-day hydration. Over time, the skin becomes even more beautiful thanks to the Vita-Light complex. This contains kiwi extract, rich in vitamins and minerals that improve the vitality of the skin, and acerola extract, rich in organic acids that boost the brilliance of the skin. For beautiful, natural skin.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Powder Foundation is more than makeup. It is the very first powder foundation to contain caviar extract. It also contains La Prairie’s exclusive Cellular Complex, which provides critical ingredients to the skin and protects against UVA and UVB rays through SPF 15/PA++. The foundation transforms from a cream into a cashmere-soft layer of makeup, enveloping the skin in a silky veil that enhances the complexion. The coverage of this foundation can be built up as desired and guarantees a matte and fresh look all day long.
