How Does Skin-Matching Makeup Work?

Flawless skin is on everyone's beauty wish list -- and the skin-matching effects of micro-pigmented makeup makes it our top choice. Here, a pro explains how it works.
Question: "I've heard that some new makeup contains pigments that adjust to my skin color. How do they work? "

Answer: "Adjustable pigments are chameleons, adapting to whatever surface they're sitting on," explains Jerrod Blandino, creator of Too Faced Cosmetics. The high-tech micro-pigments work like a prism, diffusing light to balance gradations in skin tone so the shade blends seamlessly and looks perfectly natural indoors or outside. To try: Prescriptives Traceless Skin Responsive Tint, $32 (available in six shades); Too Faced Magic Wand Concealer, $18.50 (in one adaptable shade).
