On several occasions I have told you about one of my favorite makeup brands, Jorge de la Garza Makeup (in this link you can review all the posts dedicated to this brand). In addition, I also told you about her Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation makeup base that has become one of my favorites. In 2013 the brand launched a new medium-high coverage foundation and they gave it to me to try. I’ve been testing it a lot and I had it on the list of “pending posts” (along with an infinity of other products!) So it was time to write the post and share my experience with this base.
It is a fluid makeup base with medium and medium-high coverage, adjustable according to your tastes and needs. In any case, it is a makeup with a fluid texture as I said, but very light. Do not confuse a medium-high coverage with a heavy texture, professional products like these have textures that are comfortable to wear, respect the skin and always leave a clean and natural look, even when they cover well! As it has good coverage, it is ideal for those who, like me, are looking for a base that covers imperfections and blemishes but who do not want to give up naturalness and flawless skin, of course. It is also a very good base for photography and video, which is recommended for events such as weddings, parties, etc.
Makeup Base Skin Transforming Foundation by Jorge de la Garza Makeup
This makeup base contains pearl microspheres to provide a satin finish on the skin. This means that it is not a matte or glossy base, which keeps imperfections and shine well under control. The product contains sun protection factor SPF 15, which is correct and adequate in general, but remember that when the sun shines brighter or if you are going to be outdoors (even in winter) it is better to apply a good primer underneath with a higher factor. high (I always recommend wearing SPF 50 on all occasions)
Like all Jorge de la Garza products, it is hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and does not contain parabens. It is worth remembering that this brand regularly collaborates in oncological makeup sessions, dedicated to people suffering from cancer and in chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments, who have very reactive skin and cannot use products that alter their skin. It does contain dimethicone, which is the most common type of silicone in cosmetics. Personally, I have nothing against silicone in cosmetics and it is a totally accepted and legal ingredient, it is a matter of taste and in any case, it is not the time to argue about silicones … I simply point it out because I know it is a frequent question.

As for the shades, the makeup is available in only 3 shades, which may surprise a priori. The 3 tones are the 06 Sandy Beige, the 07 Porcelain and the 10 Natural Beige. These are very adaptable shades that contain a type of pigment that adjusts to each skin tone in a fantastic way. I am the first that when I saw the color that was recommended to me I thought it would be too dark and yet I was surprised to see that the medium 07 Porcelain it suits me perfectly despite being very white and almost always using the lightest shade of all makeup ranges. You have to use very little product because it spreads a lot and as you apply it on the skin (I always do it with a brush but it can be applied with a sponge or with my fingers, as you feel more comfortable) it melts and the color blends with your skin, really!
In the photo you can see how the product, applied in large quantity and without melting on the skin, looks darker and more covering.
I love this makeup base and I recommend it to all those looking for medium or high coverage, a complete makeup that meets all the requirements: coverage, duration, hydration and a satiny and luminous effect on the skin. If you have very oily or very dry skin, it is not the right product, I would recommend other make-ups, likewise, if you prefer a light finish or have skin with many wrinkles, it is better to use a lighter base like BB Cream or low coverage.
The price of the Skin Transforming Foundation bottle is € 34.91. You can buy this makeup base and the rest of Jorge de la Garza Makeup’s products online in his own web store and you can also find them in numerous hairdressers and beauty salons throughout Spain.
