As some of you may be aware I have been trying out the sculpted by Aimée Connolly Second foundation you may have even taken part in my recent poll over on my Instagram on what you would like me to review next which is greatly appreciated I love interacting with my readers/followers allows me to see what you're all interested in, anyways that's enough waffling lets see what I thought!
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with sculpted by Aimée Connolly, is a beauty brand created by Irish makeup artist Aimée Connolly she has created products suited to all skin types and ages. Aimee launched the foundations a few months ago, she brought out a dewy and a matte mineral foundation available in 9 different shades.
I opted for the dewy as I have dry skin I selected the shade ‘fair’ the foundation is 100% mineral foundation with a medium coverage its super buildable I would have redness on my cheeks so I like to opt for more coverage in that area. The foundation leaves you with a radiant glow after applied and a natural-looking appearance. As fair as ingredients, the foundation contains hyaluronic acid which hydrates your skin, anti-ageing with Camille oil, skin-calming with lavender, soothes the skin with aloe vera all these ingredients work together to allow the foundation to apply to the skin more smoothly and evenly.
I applied the foundation using a flat top buffer brush or a duo fibre brush when I didn’t have my skin well prepped I did find it cling to the dry patches especially around my forehead(need to drink more water) and nose but overall I liked the coverage, glow and how it looked photographed no flashback. I try to opt for mineral foundations as they have a more natural-looking finish so much better for your skin especially for everyday use.
Once applied I found the foundation last quite well throughout the day it can become patchy around chin and nose but that's to be expected from eating or itching your nose but I would add a translucent powder on top just to set the foundation and keep it in place that bit longer. Overall I was impressed and would 100% repurchase it again!
