Years of walking out of shops and beauty closets with the wrong shade of foundation have taught me that just because a makeup color blends seamlessly on the back of your hand, that doesn’t mean it’s the right match for your face. And now I have scientific proof why! I dragged myself to the Hollywood & Highland mall/tourist trap yesterday morning because the huge Sephora emporium there was demonstrating their new Sephora + Pantone Color IQ—a cutting-edge technology that promises to help you choose the right shade of foundation without even having to swatch a product on your face. How do they do it?
I’ve always wanted to be a Bare Escentuals/bareMinerals lover. I worshipped Leslie Blodgett after hearing a couple of her moving speeches at CEW events (check out the charismatic CEO yourself on OWN’s “Commander in Heels,” Monday, September 3rd at 10pm). They started this whole mineral makeup revolution and some of my friends with the most perfect skin still swear by their loose powder mineral foundation.
