Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation
When it comes to foundations, some like it radiant - and some like it matte. And this is for women in the latter camp. Offering medium-to-full coverage, the 'intelligent' foundation (the 'baby' of D&G's genius Creative Advisor and make-up dynamo Pat McGrath) actually gives a really natural, seamless finish on the face. Perhaps because Pat's dark-skinned herself, there's a stupendous range of shades for every skintone - 15 in all - from porcelain-pale through to much, much deeper tones, all offering impressive staying power.
We would just add: this foundation has an SPF20. Ignore that! Who wears their foundation all over? (And if you do, you need a make-up lesson.)
