On a good day, I have relatively dry skin, but once the cold weather hits, flakiness ensues (gross, I know). Finding a foundation that hides the redness from my wind-chapped cheeks while keeping my skin hydrated seemed like an impossible feat until I stumbled upon this baby from NARS.
Though I was hesitant about the compact formula at first, NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation really does feel like a cream foundation and offers a lightweight, luminous finish. Because of its buildable coverage, I can use it on days when my skin only needs a slight veil of coverage, along with those days when I experience some serious breakouts. And since its a compact, it’s super easy to carry around in my purse in case I need a touch-up mid-day. The result? Radiant, flawless-looking skin sans flakiness.
NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation: $12 for compact, $43 for foundation refill. Available at Sephora.
