#ELLETriesIt: Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation
Perfect selfies, everyday
Finding the right foundation can be a feat, but here’s one that might just solve this pressing problem. Smashbox’s Studio Skin Foundation is true to its label and makes you look picture-ready under any light. For something that provides heavy coverage, the fluid is super hydrating and feels like almost nothing on your skin. The oil-free foundation blends in and stays put for fifteen hours, even if the weather gods aren’t on your side. The ELLE team put it to the test to discover if it lives up to the hype:

I usually avoid foundations, but this one was a surprise. Unlike most medium to full-coverage bases, it quickly settled in, didn’t get cake-y or settle into lines, and stayed put all day. And as the name proclaims, it successfully passed the selfie-test too.

I’ve tried a plethora of liquid formulas and nothing comes close to the blendability of this one. A single pump sinks into the skin and gives airbrushed finish. It’s hydrating, without making your skin look oily and won’t budge even if you sweat. Make it last even longer by wearing it with their Photo Finish primer underneath.

The best thing about this foundation is the staying power. It lasted me a whole day even through humid weather, without drying my skin. The coverage is amazing, so you can even skip on your concealer for a natural look. Plus points for the lightweight texture too.
