Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40
After the vitamin C serum, Ocasio-Cortez said she uses the Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 ($48) in the morning. This foundation has the consistency of a serum and blends into a supersheer finish. It also has hyaluronic acid and squalane, which help hydrate the skin, while niacinamide helps brighten the skin and minimize breakouts.
I've owned the Ilia foundation for quite some time, but I typically reached for it in the spring and summer months, not the wintertime. I applied it with the dropper to my forehead, cheeks, and chin, and blended it with a densely packed foundation brush in circular motions. Paired with the vitamin C serum, the skin tint left behind a smooth, glowing finish. It lightly blurs imperfections while still allowing your skin to shine through.
