Hylamide finisher for a natural glow!
For some reason The Ordinary - Hylamide Photography Foundation finisher isn't getting much attention. But it should be, since dewy/glowy/luminous skin is all the rage right now. Hylamide is a sister brand to The Ordinary, under the Deciem umbrella of products. A step up in technology and price. The name is misleading since it isn't foundation and offers no coverage, but what it does do is blur your imperfections and add a lit-from-within glow and subtle highlight. You can apply it before or on top of foundation, or all by itself. I prefer a natural look, so have only worn it alone. In the photos I'm wearing only a mineral sunscreen, Hylamide Photography finisher, and some TO marula facial oil (no filters or editing). I don't have flawless skin - I'm 36 with freckles, uneven pigmentation, and wrinkles, but I think this does a great job of blurring some of those imperfections. I purchased Transparent (which looks white but blends to nothing but luminance), and Golden Tan (which looks scary gold but blends to a warm, subtle glow). I wouldn't recommend the gold for really fair skin. I'm wearing one on each side of my face in one picture, but it's hard to see much of a difference in the two. Speaking of glowing skin and Deciem products, for a natural tanned glow, I would recommend Hylamide - Glow Radiance Booster which is a better alternative to traditional sunless tanning products. This also doesn't seem to be getting the hype it deserves. I may review it separately another time. Cheers, beauties!
