The Film and TV industry is forever evolving, as is the equipment used. Cameras can now capture so much detail, including every layer of make-up on our skin. Make Up For Ever have revamped and reformulated their best selling HD foundation, simply to keep up with the new technology available. Introducing the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation.
I was really looking forward to playing with this foundation, as I had heard so many good things about it's predecessor, so this was bound to be just as good if not better. Designed to feel like a second skin and undetectable to the eye, this natural yet flawless coverage foundation does indeed promise a lot. Does it really do everything that it says?
I buffed 1-2 pumps over my skin using my Crownbrush Syntho Deluxe Flat Bronzer. This gives a really natural finish, whilst covering any signs of redness and blurring pores and imperfections. I was really, really impressed. The liquid feels so lightweight, but not watery, and it really is "invisible". I would genuinely not guess I had foundation on other than the fact I know my real skin does not look this good without make-up. Even with a couple of hours wear, I can touch my skin and it feels like there is nothing there - it sets perfectly and does not feel tacky or greasy to touch.
For someone like me who actually does not like wearing make-up on a regular basis, simply because I like my skin to breathe, this is an awesome foundation. I can wear this without feeling like I have a single thing on. Even those of you who are wanting fuller coverage, simply stipple the foundation onto the skin rather than buff it in.
I think this will work for all skin types, as I have dehydrated skin so suffer from both dry patches and an oily t-zone. For once I am struggling to describe the finish as it just does look like skin, it isn't matte and it isn't glowy. It is somewhere in between.
The shade range is pretty impressive too - with a staggering 40 different shades, covering fair, medium, tan and dark skins - as well as red and yellow undertones. This is great for make-up artists like me, making it easier to find the perfect match for clients. For those of you wondering, the shade I am wearing is Marble Y225.
I used my Olympus Pen to capture these images for once. I never really use this camera for blog photography as I use it mainly for events, but I had fun getting to grips with it. Maybe more of my posts will be created using it.
