Chicago area retailers has a newer form of foundation in stores. This is one from L'Oreal. It is called Blur foundation. It is made for several skin types. Blur foundation helps to smooth skin and erase lines and wrinkles. This is a great new product to try. If you are concerned about lines and wrinkles. Or perhaps trying to prevent them. It is available in several shades. To fit most anyone's skin tone. It feels light and comfortable. Almost as if you have nothing on your skin. As a second skin perhaps. It also leaves a radiant finish.
Visit your local retailer and ask for a skin match. The makeup artist or sales professional can help with this. They can also make suggestions on your skin tone. See if they have a sample also. Try it for a few hours and see how you like it. This is a good way to see if products work with your skin. L'Oreal has a lot of newer products that work really well. I use them and have not had a problem yet.
You can also go to their website and download their makeup tester. This way you can try on different shades. And pick one out before you go into the store. This is a great new way to try products before you head out. You can also test several other products to see which work for you.
Makeup blur is great for when you would like a lighter smoother finish. It is a great makeup all year. But summer and spring are great months for a lighter feel. Test it out and see what works for you. Visit a local Ulta or other beauty store. Walgreen's should also have it.
