Although former first lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis passed away 27 years ago, her taste in fashion and beauty products has kept people returning to this icon for tips and tricks. Like her and Princess Diana, we love to find out more about their glowing skincare and makeup regimens. While they have passed on, their fashion never did. We found out recently that the anti-aging foundation the former first lady used on her skin in the ’90s is still around and available to purchase today.
New York makeup artist Pablo Manzoni told Vanity Fair in 1995 that Onassis often used the iconic Elizabeth Arden’s Flawless Foundation. The foundation covered up the sunspots she had gotten from her many summers in Rhode Island, France, and Greece and made the former first lady’s skin look fresh. But he did reveal that he believed her foundation color was one shade too light, so make sure to carefully select your shade before making Onassis’s mistake.
The Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Skincaring Foundation is buildable, so if you do have acne, acne scarring or dark spots, you can cover that up, just like Onassis did. Normally priced at over $40, you can snag it for under $30 on LookFantastic.
How can a foundation give you full coverage and have anti-aging properties at the same time? Well, this popular Elizabeth Arden product has a few not-so-secret ingredients that most foundations don’t. It contains the skincare superstar hyaluronic acid, which helps plump and moisturizes your skin, as well as Vitamin E and Vitamin C, which works to brighten your skin and give you that subtle glow. Lastly, the formula contains a mix of botanical ingredients that calms your skin.
This foundation comes in 40 shades, so you can find one that suits your skin tone the best. It can last up to 24 hours, so you won’t have to reapply it often.
