Welcome to Inside Vanity, a regular letter from our editors created in partnership with Myer to spotlight the latest in beauty, from colour to complexion and everything in between.

Foundation is arguably one of the most important components of one’s makeup routine. The caveat though, is that it’s incredibly difficult to find the one (and I would know, I try a lot). So I’ve more or less resigned to the idea that it’s suitable to have different foundations for different occasions. I’ll have a going out formula, a weekend formula, a good-skin-day formula. And I’m consistently adding new launches into the mix. Which leads me to my most recent acquisition: the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Skincaring Foundation and the Flawless Start Hydrating Serum Primer, both of which are launching into Myer this month. To me, this foundation is a bit like the blue denim of makeup because it has mass appeal. Light but buildable and with the perfect natural-glowy texture, this new offering comes in 40 diverse shades and offers skincare benefits thanks to the inclusion of vitamin c and hyaluronic acid. When paired with the primer, it’s a makeup dream.

So with that being said, feel free to take a peek inside my vanity and see both the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Skincaring Foundation and Flawless Start Hydrating Serum Primer in action below.


Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Skincaring Foundation is available in a diverse range of 40 shades with warm, neutral and cool undertones.
