I don’t have a Valentine (let me revise that: I don’t have a SPECIAL Valentine), but I do have Dolce & Gabanna The Foundation Perfect Finish Powder Foundation. And honestly, I’d rather cuddle up in lacy boyshorts next to this stuff than any of the “I’m sexy but what’s a book?” airheads I’m dating. Longtime SYB Babes will know that I only wear foundations for shoots and things. For my everyday look, I swipe a goldeny concealer on my undereye circles and chin, and set it with power. With great sadness, I have to report that Lina Lina Bobina accidentally dropped my go-to MAC powder in the toilet. So I got a new one — this gem from D&G! GIRL. I barely even need concealer anymore! I pat it under my eyes, on my chin, and a bit on my forehead — and I look so polished.
The coverage is perfect; it’s sheer-ish, but serious enough to hide your shady spots. Makes the world think #youwokeuplikedis. And if you want a more formal look, dip the sponge in water, and it transforms into a foundation. Great brown girl shades! Plus, the compact is goddamned fancy. Italians do everything better.
