HD Foundation Trio A (Light/Medium)
Unless you are addicted to YouTube channels or you have been to IMATS recently, you most probably have never heard of Eve Pearl. Eve Pearl, the person, is a five time Emmy award winning makeup artist who has worked on numerous celebrities and personalities for TV and movies. Eve Pearl, the line, produces some amazingly high quality products with serious skincare ingredients that are made to work for photography and help you look your best.
I was really interested in trying this line after seeing the foundation and concealer pop up again and again on YouTube. Eve Pearl has her own extensive channel on YouTube. I highly recommend watching it for pointers and instructions on the products. There are lots of tutorials that you can benefit from even if you weren't interested in the products.
I am NC35 (on the MAC shade scale), and from the videos, I felt that I was possibly in between a medium and light in foundations. I chose this particular trio because I thought it would suit my skin. HD Foundation Trio A - Light Medium comes with foundations Light 1, Medium 1 and Medium 2. Price is $50.
If you aren't sure what shade would work for you, Eve Pearl staffers will match you if you email them of photo of yourself. Here is a link to their contact page. The line prides itself on having a shade for every face. Women of color will definitely be happy to see a wide variety of shades in this collection.
Swatches: Light 1, Medium 1, Medium 2.
The foundation literally ***glided*** on my skin. From watching the videos, I feared that this foundation would be cakey or dry, but I was absolutely wrong. It applies like a luxurious face cream. It soaks into the skin, and it doesn't feel heavy at all. The formula contains anti-oxidants and is free of parabens, mineral oil and petrolatum. I applied with a foundation brush and wet sponge after the methods used by Eve Pearl in her videos. See my before and after below.

Eve Pearl fully understands the blemishes, dark circles and all those things that we would like to keep secret when we show our faces to the world.

Cons: Pricey, but a little goes a LONG way. Packing on the trio isn't as nice as the standard duo. Only available online and at a few select retail locations.
