Which foundation do all these celebs have in common?



Oxigenetix Breathable Foundation is used by makeup artists and was all over the Oscars red carpet. Fans of the breathable foundation include the likes of Kate Bosworth, Sharni Vinson, Poppy Delvingne, Lisa Kudrow and the Kardashians. Here’ s why...

2016-08-18_1521.pngThis foundation was originally created for doctors to help simultaneously help cover and heal procedural scars, but now it’ s famed for covering and healing problematic skin for the cameras. For the third year in a row it’ s the only foundation used for problematic skin at the Oscars’ backstage touch-up tents.

The foundation itself is completely breathable thanks to its main ingredient Ceravitae, which is an Oxygen complex that promotes collagen cell production and connective tissue growth in aging and damaged skin.

Oxygenetix is long-lasting, up to 24 hours, and provides a full coverage but feels lightweight, which makes it perfect for red carpet close-ups, or any situation in which there are cameras everywhere.

It comes in 14 different shades with both yellow and blue undertones, is fragrance- and oil-free, is hypo-allergenic, contains sun protection properties and is safe for sensitive skin. Seriously, what doesn’t this stuff do?

This is it — the foundation that does everything. Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation doubles as a base and concealer, lasts all day, is light and breathable but has a buildable coverage. The added bonus? This foundation was created by and for doctors to cover and heal surgery scars; it has an Oxygen complex that promotes collagen production and tissue growth in your skin. That means wave goodbye to problematic skin. Acne, scars and signs of damage or aging are erased as the days go by when you’ re wearing this foundation.

When our editor Anna Magee tried it she said: ‘ Few foundations can instantly transform and even out your skin like this one. I tried a light application of it and it goes on like a cream but covers like a foundation though without any cakiness. It also feels lovely on the face, wears well and leave the skin a little shiny and radiant. It’ s expensive but after trying it I can see why.”
