Ah, summer, the season of smells. Food smells wafting through…
Spring is the time for renewal. Everywhere you look, there are leaves regenerating on the trees, flowers nearly in bloom, grass returning to whence it came, and birds soaring through the air, singing a happy song. Not only is it a time for renewal in nature, but it’s also a time for skin care renewal and revamping our cosmetic choices after winter’s departure. Vine Vera has done our research, and we’re here to tell you that now is the time to get rid of the super cakey, thick foundations of years past, and opt for something innovative, new, and fresh. This is the season of barely there foundations. After doing our due diligence and research, VineVera has come up with some of the season’s most in demand barely there foundations for spring, and we’d like to share them with our readers.
