Subtle, sheer tones, and seamless layering — a.k.a. a natural makeup look — requires a kind of delicateness. Short of praying for that flawless, filtered look IRL courtesy of any Korean celebrity, there appears to be a far simpler solution on hand: the Revlon PhotoReady Candid Collection.
Revlon’s Candid line comprises a foundation, concealer, and a setting powder that holds a two-pronged approach to anti-pollution makeup. These products have anti-pollution and anti-blue-light properties included too, which shields your skin from the daily grime. Think: blue light, bacteria, UV rays, pollution… none of that helps.
If there’s anything us makeup savants can agree on, it’s that we really just want our foundation to make our skin have that bare-skin effect (minus the acne scars, pigmentation and fine lines). We’re talking high expectations of a formula boasting a happy medium between subtle and striking, ideal for those wanting to play up their natural features without going completely bare. Makeup brushes at the ready, ladies.
Here’s what you’ll need to achieve the look…
PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation
Sure, having access to makeup apps that are armed with airbrush tools to smoothen wrinkles and colour-correct can be a blessing, but real life doesn’t quite provide that finish. But the best insurance for a natural makeup look might just come in the form of Revlon’s Candid foundation.
The medium coverage, long-lasting foundation provides a natural-looking brightness with translucency, and even comes packed with skin-moisturising ingredients to hydrate the skin. Revlon’s Candid anti-blue-light is also an added bonus slated to protect our complexions from more environmental damage. Also on the list of deliverables? Available in 6 shades, its weightless texture is said to mattify the skin, providing a shine-free appearance and preventing cakiness after long hours of wear. Sold.
PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer
When we gaze into the mirror, often what’s staring back are our designer eye bags. While our ageing peepers are at the mercy of growing older, those in need of a quick fix can count on the medium coverage of Revlon’s Candid concealer. Remember, a little goes a long way.
Formulated for a soft, flawless finish, the natural and buildable formula is said to be in favour of those with sensitive skin. It supposedly comes with a jolt of caffeine to wake up your tired eyes as well, and comes with the same protective antioxidants and anti-pollution claims as its sister foundation and setting powder.
PhotoReady Candid Anti-Pollution Setting Powder
While we all can’t have the luxury of staying in air-conditioned space all day, to last through the blazing balls of fire in the sky (humidity be damned), setting powder is the key in keeping our makeup locked in.
With Revlon’s Candid setting powder, their ultra-fine loose formula delivers an even skin tone and promises not to turn chalky or white upon application. The lightweight texture and 3 translucent shades are also slated to blur all matters of fine lines with its airbrushed finish. The bottom line?
Makeup Skin looks fresh, natural, and glowing.
