We've tried out the new foundation by Dr Haushka and it's a lovely daywear choice.
We all have a go-to foundation that we go back to time and time again. However, if you're like us you will have about five others that you wear occasionally for different finishes and effects. You might have one foundation for nights out - your makeup that gives amazing coverage but you don't want to waste a drop. Then you might have a foundation that is a lighter consistency and a more natural finish for daytime wear. The Dr Hauschka foundation is definitely in the latter category.
It falls into the everyday wear category for a few reasons. The coverage is sheer and natural, similar to a tinted moisturiser. It is a hydrating foundation and it works best directly applied to dry skin. If you are using your skincare underneath only use a light cream or a serum and allow it to dry in before applying your foundation. The finish is kind of like holiday skin; it gives your skin a gorgeous glow for that 'no-makeup' makeup look.
Another reason you might choose this foundation is if you have problematic skin that is aggravated by wearing makeup. This makeup is formulated with high quality natural oils and waxes in addition to medicinal plants so it would be a great choice for skin that suffers with acne or rosacea. It might not give you a huge amount of coverage but it will even out your skintone. Ingredients like coconut oil and macadamia nut oil will also protect your skin from eternal factors.
I applied it using my fingers on one occasion and then using a stifle brush (MAC #188) the next time. If you want as natural a finish as possible use your fingers. For slightly more coverage use the brush. All in all, this is a gorgeous foundation. Oh, and by the way, all Dr Hauschka products are 100% cruelty free and they are certified natural.
