Benefit Flawless Foundation

I avoid applying foundation at all costs. I don’t like the texture of foundation, its heaviness and the constant thought that I’m clogging my pores.┬áThe last time I wore foundation, it was the Kennedy Center Honors in December. It was a must since I was on the red carpet interviewing Sarah Jessica Parker, who looked absolutely flawless that evening.

Speaking of flawless, I tested Benefit’s Hello Flawless foundation ($34) recently and immediately my foundation fears subsided. The brightening liquid foundation offers great coverage but also allows a natural complexion since it’s made with Oxygen Wow Hydrating Complex and SPF 25.

Available in nine shades, this creamy lightweight foundation boosts cellular respiration and helps protect against environmental (and emotional) stresses.
