The deeper shade is matte, making it perfect for contouring the face and body. The lighter shade has low-level pearlized pigments, making it ideal for highlighting the high planes of the face. This non-acnegenic formula has jet-milled pigments to allow for smooth, even, silky application.

per-fekt skin perfection gel & body perfection gel

Skin Perfection Gel ($57.50) is designed to act as a “second skin” with enough color to give an “airbrushed finish.” The product should improve skin tones, even and smooth complextion, and disguise minor imperfections. There are also some anti-aging and moisturizing benefits wrapped up in this dynamic pseudo-foundation. It is available in five shades: translucent, luminous, radiant, rich ideal, and decadent. It applies easily, and the company recommends using fingertips to pat and smooth onto skin.

I like that the product is free of oil, parabens, talc, and fragrances. I loved how smooth my skin felt after application. It also felt weightless — I really couldn’t tell I was wearing anything on my ace; it felt more like I had just put on a thin layer of moisturizer than a product meant to help even out skin and give the appearance of smoothness while covering a few skin flaws. In terms of coverage, I could have used more, but I tend to like light to medium coverage. However, this is such an ideal way to get a flawless skin look with less product. For those who hate the way foundation feels (cakey and whatnot), Skin Perfection Gel is the solution! It’s also a great product for summer or lazy days when you want something light, not at all heavy, and something that’s practically grab-and-go.

How long do you spend doing your makeup? How long does it take you to put on a “full face” of makeup, from start to finish?

It takes me anywhere from fifteen minutes to a half hour, probably, to do everything from face to eyes. If I’m doing a natural look, then I can usually have it done in less than fifteen minutes!
