Video: A Spring Foundation Wardrobe Update Including the Latest from Chanel

Happy March to you! With the arrival of spring, I was compelled to create an updated list of base products (skincare is the best makeup, no?) and foundations that work well for the warmer months.

All textures, diverse ingredient profiles and varying levels of coverage are included in my overview so that there is something for absolutely everyone.

Kindly scroll on for the video, product details and swatches and images of my selects in action as well as the Bottom Line…

Style notes.


  • French Terry Sweatshirt: I ordered this sweatshirt in three colors and wear the gray one most of all. It’s a touch rough inside (definitely a French Terry vibe) but not at all uncomfortable and it looks so relaxed yet chic, even with sporty bottoms.
  • Spanx Bikeshorts: These are my favorite bike shorts to date…they hold everything in while being extremely pliable and comfortable. I wear them at least two times a week…try them and you’ll see what I mean.
  • Nike Air Max 270: A cushiony bottom and a splash of color make these Nikes an instant hit in my day-to-day…there’s nothing quite like a pair of 270s to throw on your feet and go.

Last look.

Bottom Line: I truly hope you enjoyed this foundation focus and would love to know what caught your eye…do tell.

Good things ahead, including a work from home look, new beauty devices and a host of new product procurements…cannot wait to share.

Stay strong, seek wisdom, much love and more soon,
