Does This Euphoria-Approved Foundation Live Up To The Hype?

We can’t help but drool over makeup looks on HBO’s teen show “Euphoria.” Whether you are team Maddy (Alexa Demie) or Team Cassie (Sydney Sweeney), you have to admit that the makeup on the show is museum-worthy because it has revived looks from the 1990s, and everyone is fascinated. Minimalism makeup is so 2020, and as we gear to get out in the world again, maximalist makeup is all the rage. Independent reported that Instagram and TikTok’s makeup community is obsessed with the makeup and nail inspirations the show delivers. The first season was all about “gemstones to neon lids and tears full of glitter.” Who can forget Cassie’s “peacock inspired eye look” with an exaggerated cat-eye with blue eyeshadow topped with “teal and sapphire blue stones” or Jules’ (Hunter Schafer) “hot neon wings” with red and florescent green eyeshadow created by makeup artist Doniella Davy (via Byrdie)?

Nylon shared that season two took a turn for “darker and moodier” looks with Maddy’s “razor-sharp eyeliner” and Lexi’s (Maude Apatow) go-to “bright-red lipstick” and not the usual glitter bomb eye makeup but with more focus on dewy skin. The updated looks were “more refined and subtle than last year’s aesthetic” and turned to Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation because “it melts into the skin and looks so much like skin,” to make the characters look radiant, per Allure. Whether you are rooting for Maddy or Cassie, everyone is a fan of flawless skin with a touch of shine.

Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation gives you natural-looking skin with a flawless glow

Chantecaille Gel Hydrating & Moisturizing Foundation, also called “Future Skin,” is set to revolutionize the face of all foundations. Infused with “60% water,” this oil-free gel foundation is “lightweight” and you can use it for medium or full coverage. According to Chantecaille, it is infused with “reflective circular pigments” for flawless-looking skin. It also has “aloe, chamomile, and arnica that calm irritation and soothe sensitive skin.” The fancy brew of “rosemary, green tea, and rice bran help prevent environmentally caused oxidation.” It comes in 15 shades, and is available at Nordstrom for $79. PopSugar raves about this foundation because it applies smoothly to give you a “dewy” and “natural-looking finish.” It can seamlessly conceal “dark marks without looking cakey.” You also don’t have to worry if you have “post-acne hyperpigmentation and visible texture.” It is so good that your skin looks “plump” like you “don’t even have foundation on.” How amazing is that? Besides the limited shade range, PopSugar thinks it’s totally worth the hype because it gives you “satin skin.” It can be a bit messy to apply due to the packaging being in a container, but nothing a little foundation brush couldn’t help with. Allure loves this foundation because it has a “lovely, natural look and does a decent job evening out skin,” though it won’t double as a concealer. Despite its staying power, it is “hydrating and non-greasy” and will never look “mask-like.”
