I have acne. Still. I’ll be 24 next month, and there has only been two short periods of time since I hit puberty oh-so-many years ago that I have not had a blemish on my face. There are times when I don’t break out in extremes, but I assure you — my skin always has a few zits on it.
With that said, I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect foundation for years. The problem is that when I’m not breaking out in extreme amounts, I am dealing with the inflamed scars that it leaves behind, which are usually just as hard to cover up.
I’ve tried a lot of different type of makeup with a lot of different methods. Everything is usually OKAY but never just fabulous. If you have acne, you know that there’s usually a trade-off with finding a heavy coverage foundation. It usually makes you break out more — and we’re back to square one. Light coverage foundations are for you lucky gals, who wear makeup to — what’s the saying? — “even out your skin tone.”
But to women like me and those blessed with better skin, alike, I present to you a dream foundation that truly has defied the odds of what regular foundations can do. Call it the prescription drug that’s sold over-the-counter — it is A-MAZ-ING.
My cousin, who has the most dewy, flawless skin you’ll ever find, is a foundation fiend. She loves finding that “perfect” foundation even though she could wear tinted moisturizer and be on her way. She’s well-aware of my foundation troubles and last time I saw her, she introduced me to the Graftobian makeup line. It’s not sold in drugstores, and it’s not sold in Sephora. It’s a line of stage makeup that’s frequently used in theatrical and TV productions. She had ordered their sampler palette, but none of the colors matched her so she gave it to me.
The consistency of the Graftobian Hi Def Glamour Creme foundation is smooth, light and creamy — three qualities that are usually mutually exclusive in foundations. If you were wipe your finger across, you’d never think it was a heavy coverage foundation. And yet, once it’s on, there’s nothing left to see but an “even skin tone.”
