Foundation Drops Are The Secret To A Natural Makeup Look

Thank us later.

" Your skin looks great! What have you done?"

"You can't be wearing makeup. Your complexion looks so natural."

" I want whatever foundation you have on right now. Seriously."

These are just a few of the compliments you may receive if you're using foundation drops. While this liquid makeup formula has been around for some time now (Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation is a cult classic), Cover FX is credited with revolutionizing this product with its Custom Cover Drops.

The brand's innovative foundation is available in 24 shades and can be mixed with anything (namely, moisturizer, primer or facial oil) to achieve sheer to full coverage. Blended with lecithin, a lipid extract that has a skin-like texture, these tinted pigments go on smooth for a "no-makeup makeup" finish.

This technology is what makes foundation drops stand out from traditional powder or cream formulas, which tend to go on super thick and make skin look cakey or fake.

Bobbi Brown and Marc Jacobs recently expanded their cosmetics ranges with foundation drops that also help you to fake a flawless complexion. What's even more exciting about these products is that they include SPF and hydrating ingredients such as jojoba and sunflower extracts. You don't have to sacrifice your skincare while covering up!

For a natural look, we recommend applying 1-2 foundation drops with a fluffy makeup brush. Then, gently buff it into your skin. Anywhere between 2-4 foundation drops will give you full coverage when used with a sponge like the BeautyBlender.
