Occasionally we come across a product that bestows an immediate glow, changing our look (for the better!) in an instant. Since we’d be remiss to keep them to ourselves, we highlight these genius finds in our Instant Makeover series.
When my skin starts to dry out from the cold air, I tend to glob on thicker moisturizers. Because they can leave the skin feeling a bit greasy, the last thing I want is a thick foundation on top of that. That’s why I’ve transitioned to Per-fékt Skin Perfection Gel ($48, perfektbeauty.com), a gel-mousse formula that creates a matte finish and cancels out any oil residue.
I personally love this gel because it enhances the skin rather than covering everything up. Since it’s so light, I don’t lose the natural flush to my cheeks. Instead, my color peeks through and looks intentional. For areas that I do want to reduce redness, like my forehead or nose, I just build on more gel and it evens the color out. You might even call it an airbrush finish.
