How to have smooth, skin-tight makeup that stays the same from dawn till dusk *Summer-proof*

 Today we’re reaching for the makeup goal you’ve lost hope on.  Buttery smooth, skin-tight makeup that stays put from morning till night. Throw in some lit from within hydration and glow.   You know, the daily operandi where you apply foundation to cover your blemishes, even out skin tone etc but want your skin to appear like it doesn't have a layer of foundation on?

 THE APPLE OF SKINCARE: SIMPLISTIC

Here it comes. The in-depth deep dive into the a single brand's world: SIMPLISTIC  We first stumbled across Simplistic through an online retailer Beautibi, an online skincare boutique that retails indie brands discovered within the premises of Taiwan and Korea.
