Want a natural, polished look for that string of holiday parties? Colorado makeup artists Sally Walker and Bre Ortola–the founders of the all-natural Alchemy Mineral Blends makeup line–have a foundation that’ll put a glow on the cheeks. Alchemy Mineral Blends Custom Foundation‘s mixed base matches a skin’s color, tone, and texture, while also providing sun protection (up to SPF 26). The foundation’s vitamins A and E act as antioxidants, while iron oxide and mica create color and shine. For tips on how to best use the foundation, set up a private makeup lesson ($35) with Ortola or Walker–both are Hollywood trained.
