Motives Cosmetics Face Products

If you haven’t read them already, check out our previous posts on Motives Cosmetics products here:

Lips and Eyes Part 1 and Part 2

Guess what we will be covering today…if you guessed face products, you are correct!
We have several differing foundation options to suit the coverage you need!
We have a Full Coverage Photo Finish Powder that gives you the perfect matte finish.  It won’t look too caked on or leave any unsightly lines.  It applies evenly for a perfect full coverage effect.  The Motives for La La Mineral Dual Foundation is another option that is full coverage, but has a lightweight effect.  This product is oil-free and is infused with aloe to keep the skin moisturized.  If powder isn’t your foundation of choice, Motives also offers Motives for La La Liquid Foundation.  It goes on wet with a silky smooth application and helps your skin look more dewy.  Start off with a nickel sized amount and then add more because it has buildable coverage.  This is a great all-day wear option.  Another liquid option is the Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation with SPF 15.  Just because summer is almost over, it doesn’t mean you can skimp on sun protection.  For days when you are in a rush, this is a great product because it has a 3 in 1 application of SPF, primer, and foundation!  Which foundation do you think best suits you?
