The Hit List

I have normal-to-dry skin, light-medium skin tone, warm undertones. Technically, Tarte Rainforest of the Sea is full coverage, which it can be, but it isn’t crazy, intense pigmentation in one tiny drop. That would be my favorite, but after that, I would argue Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (always a classic). I also liked Tarte’s Double Duty Hybrid Gel Foundation, but it doesn’t have a great shade match for me.

The Hit List

I’m normal-to-dry in skin type, light-medium/yellow complexion. SO many answers are possible here! For me, I will say Tarte Rainforest of the Sea, which is technically billed at a full coverage foundation, but I find it more buildable from medium to full (that would be its weakness, too, for those truly after full coverage!). Something more traditionally buildable would have me saying Guerlain Lingerie de Peau.

The Hit List

I don’t think most would consider it a tool, but cleansing oils in general made removing makeup so much easier (and efficient) that I feel I have no excuse to not remove makeup at the end of the day–when I was younger, it made a really compelling case to always remove my makeup. Now, I’m used to removing, so it seems wrong not to these days! A more tool-like item would be the T3 blow dryer, because it dries my hair so, so much faster than any blow dryer I had used previously and didn’t suck up my hair either.
