makeup base

Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Gel Touch ($88) boasts a jelly-emulsion texture that melts upon application and leaves a soft, rosy flush. M.A.C’s balmy Next To Nothing Face Colour ($58) has opalescent microspheres that blur out imperfections and bring out skin’s luminosity. And Shu Uemura’s Petal Skin Fluid Foundation ($68) hides pores with one application while brightening skin, leaving a transparent, semi-matte finish thanks to a mix of ultra-fine mineral pigments and soft radiance diffusers.
