iT says 'bye bye' to foundation for summer, spring, winter, fall or when ever and where ever. iT puts your best face forward, read on about iT and other beauty hits for summer 2016.
You have to get it, Bye Bye Foundation from iT Cosmetics--the perfect summer makeup that products, serves and really covers the flaws. I took it to Maui with me and used it mornings at the beach and for evenings out to dinner a posh dining spots such as Duo at the Four Seasons, Gannon's, Humu at The Grand Wailea, the Andaz and others and it held out fabulously. When you get this super iT product you can really bid adieu to ordinary foundation. What's great for frequent travelers such as I is you cut down on the products that need to be scrutinized by TSA security by eliminating your liquid foundation which you won't require any more. It's really a powerful sunscreen besides face glamming makeup. After watching a TV infomercial on the product, I knew I had to get iT and I did and love iT and the name ‘Bye Bye Foundation’ with SPF 50+.Liquid Sunshine Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 for Face ($36): iT really was love after one application of this silkening sunprotector that offers UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection from the sun’s harmful rays in a non-whitening moisturizing lotion.
