For me, Elizabeth Arden has always been squarely a skincare brand. There’s been at least two tubes of their iconic 8 Hour Cream in the cupboard for as long as I can remember, and their overnight treatment has become a nighttime staple for me. So, I absolutely jumped at the chance to give their brand new Presage Anti-Aging Foundation a go.
It might sound a bit odd that I’m trying an anti-acing product when I’m still in my twenties, but when a product promises to protect skin from the elements as well as make it look great, well, who could resist?
Packaged in a slick, rather space-age pump-top bottle, the foundation in eight different shades. Those with very light or deep skin tones may struggle to find a match, but the finish of the foundation is medium-to-light, so you should be able to make it work. I only need a pump or two in the morning, and I’ve been applying it with my favourite foundation brush (this one). It applies smoothly, and leaves skin looking fresh and naturally glowy. It’s designed for normal to dry skin, and leaves it looking super fresh an smoothe – it’s the perfect base for the rest of my makeup. Crucially for me, it’s also incredibly lightweight, and doesn’t feel like I’m wearing a full face of makeup! If you’re in sunnier climes, it also contains an SPF30, which is so important!
