Over the past few years, I have made a point of focusing on using better skincare and make up products, particularly ones with clean ingredients. I also enjoy finding locally owned companies, and bonus points when those companies are women-owned and operated. I was recently invited to a custom foundation session at Colette Skincare in Apex, NC and I am so excited to share my experience with you today and talk more about custom blended foundation.
Custom Blended Foundation with Colette Skincare
One of my favorite parts of the experience was learning more about Colette and her expertise in the field. All of her skincare products are made by her and she labels her products herself, too. Her makeup products are all designed by her and she mixes the products based on the needs of her client’s individual concerns. I’ll talk a bit more about my specific custom blend below.
A Custom Foundation Session at Colette Skincare
I arrived at Colette’s salon and scanned the QR code outside to complete my COVID screening. She then welcomed me in, took my temperature, and invited me to wash my hands before getting started. Colette is open for private shopping sessions in 15 minute appointment increments and then by appointment for skin care services and make up sessions. She also offers contactless pick up for her retail as well.
After doing the COVID precautionary screenings, we got into my custom foundation session. She took a look at my skin and then we had a conversation about my skin concerns, skin care routine, and what I look for in make up products. I have sensitive, dry skin and I tend to have some redness on my cheekbones. I generally prefer lighter coverage with a dewey finish. With that information, Colette set off to creating my custom blend. What I appreciated about this was that she had me test the texture to see if there was anything I wanted added to my blend before finishing it up. With some of the products she included, it will help heal my skin in addition to providing that coverage. In the few weeks I’ve been using my product, I have been incredibly pleased with the results!
Colette is such a bright, kind soul and I enjoyed learning more about her process. She creates all her own skincare products by going to a lab and mixing them herself to ensure that she creates the quality products she is seeking. And listen, her skin is flawless, so I’ll take all of what she is using to help my skin! I took home one of her retinol products to begin trying, so I am looking forward to reporting back on that experience in the coming weeks.
If you’re in the market for a new foundation that is customized for you, go see Colette! You’ll have a fun time and come away with your new favorite product in your arsenal!
I received a complimentary custom foundation session and product in exchange for this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
