Actress Jennifer Garner has one of those complexions we all swoon over — smooth, flawless and seemingly pore-free. What's her secret? The 51-year-old star of TV shows and movies like 'Alias' and '13 Going on 30' credits the Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick. This lightweight makeup 'blends in perfectly' and provides 'just the right amount of coverage,' Garner shared with Allure. Available at Nordstrom for only $68, the Westman Atelier must-have gives users that old-Hollywood glow with just a few swipes. No caked-on foundation look here. According to Garner, it's also 'dummy proof' to use and she's only on her second stick after all these years. Talk about getting your money's worth!
And she's not the only star who swears by the magic of the Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick. One of our most beloved icons of north-of-50 glamour, the perpetually youthful Jennifer Aniston, uses the foundation stick along with other products from the Westman Atelier line. After all, its founder, Gucci Westman, is her makeup artist. And if that wasn't enough, the forever beautiful Demi Moore, 60, loves this makeup's dewy finish, too. Moore told In Style that she loves this lightweight makeup for its 'minimal' coverage (the brand identifies the coverage as 'medium').
Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick is far beyond your typical drugstore makeup. It's light and creamy so it'll camouflage imperfections without getting into your fine lines, and it provides enough coverage to hide blemishes and imperfections while maintaining a natural finish. It's also buildable, so you can use a light layer first and increase from there.
Instead of clogging your pores and making your skin dull, like some cosmetics do, this foundation promotes good skin health. The active ingredients include things like squalene, a plant-based ingredient that gives your skin a moisture infusion. Berryflux vita extract does the same, helping restore a youthful glow.
Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick comes in more than 20 colors to match practically any skin tone. The creamy formula is so good that it won a coveted prize in the beauty industry: Allure's 'Best of Beauty' Award. It helps that this holy grail product not only uses plant-based ingredients but is free of all those toxins you don't want in your system — no parabens, pthalates, silicone, fragrances, nothing. And it's even cruelty-free.
Celebs aren't the only ones who love the beauty product. Nordstrom shoppers simply adore this all-in-one that "covers everything without needing concealer."
"I’m 67 and have found that cream products are perfect for my skin!" wrote one of hundreds of customers to give the makeup five stars.
Added another: "I love everything about the Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick — feels hydrating, perfect medium coverage with very little effort, and makes my skin look smooth and even-toned. And the color is perfect. It will definitely be my daily foundation."
This happy shopper summed it up best: "There is no better make-up on the market. Period. Full stop. It makes my skin feel fresh and clean while providing enough of a glow that I don't feel overdone."
"Magic wand," said one shopper, "Keep in mind this will leave your skin radiant."
