While I was in Mexico I didn’t wear a lot of makeup during the day, I mean what’s the point if you’re swimming with the fishies (I actually did this and PS they LOVEEEE bananas), but I did get dolled up during the evenings for dinner and the shows (and maybe hitting disco once of twice, oh okay almost every night we were there).

If you’ve been down south you know how humid it can get, and as a result you pretty much write off your hair ever being straight, but if your hair is a lost cause (hello Monica hair) at least your skin can look good right? Right! As least it can with this foundation from Elizabeth Arden.



Long wear liquid foundation that provides flawless, shine-free coverage that lasts for 24 hours*

Perfectly Satin 24HR Liquid Makeup SPF 15 boasts advanced shine control ingredients that are time released to absorb oil throughout the day for non-stop complexion perfection. The transfer resistant formula can also withstand humidity,

Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Liquid Makeup SPF 15 is a lightweight, velvety formula with medium to full coverage that blends effortlessly into skin, perfecting tone for naturally flawless coverage that stays put for 24 hours* transferring or rubbing off. Infused with time-release, shine-control technology and environmentally adaptable micro-algae extract, the intuitive foundation recognizes skin’s oil levels to control excess sebum without clogging pores. In fact, based on a self assessment in a clinical study, 90% of women reported that their skin did not feel greasy after 24 hours.

The additional benefit s of vitamin E ensures that skin is protected, and looks healthier, smoother and softer. SPF 15 shields the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Ideal for normal to oily skin, Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Liquid Makeup SPF 15 is available in 10 skin-perfecting shades, specially curated by Elizabeth Arden’s Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo, to ensure lasting matte perfection for all ethnicities.


I used this foundation every night, and I’m happy to say that it really stood up the the task, and I mean I really put it through the ringer. From dancing my butt off at the disco to performing in (and winning) Miss Sirenis on stage and under some pretty hot lights my makeup was still intact! I was pretty shocked too. 
I loved the texture of this makeup with its matte finish this makeup was super easy to apply and blended in effortlessly. You could easily wear this makeup on its own, but I always like to finish it off with a powder (just to be sure). 
As you know blog reader I stood in a wedding in Mexico, and in true Short Presents fashion I did my hair and makeup myself 🙂 The Elizabeth Arden 24 HR foundation was the perfect base for my wedding look, and I was so glad to have it! It really and truly lasted all day 🙂

And trust me after doing 3 of the other girls’ makeup, standing in the wedding on the beach, shooting photos, attending the reception, dancing to EVERY single song there was ZERO time for touch ups! Stay tuned for more on my wedding makeup coming soon!

Coming soon as well is my Mexico Style Diaries 🙂 I managed to squeeze in a little shoot (see sneak peek photo above) with Nancy Thomas Photography (find her on Facebook here) and it was a lot of fun. I can’t wait to share those images with you!

In the meantime if you’re looking for a new foundation I’d suggest giving this one a go! With its super light weight texture and matte finish I think it’s perfect for the warm summer months 🙂 

Hope you found this review helpful!
