Essential Foundation

Color: Bryce

Sappho New Paradigm Essential Foundation is a must-have for any beauty lover’s makeup kit. Made with aloe vera for light moisturization, this foundation has a weightless feel on skin and creates a flawless, glowing appearance. Rooibos and green tea lend a sense of protection against environmental damage and premature aging, carrot seed oil diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and frankincense makes skin look clear and balanced. The buildable formula allows for light to medium coverage and feels super luxurious on skin. Available in a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones.

As a celebrity makeup artist, it wasn’t JoAnn Fowler’s intention to create a makeup line. After L-Word actress Mia Kirshner requested paraben-free makeup, Fowler searched for natural options to no avail. Upon researching the negative effects of toxins in makeup, Fowler struggled to find the performance she craved in clean formulas. With a few nudges of support from Kirshner, JoAnn followed the calling to formulate a green makeup line suitable for being on-set and Sappho was born. As head of the makeup department for The L-Word, she had the perfect canvas to test her formulas, and in the end named each of the twelve Sappho foundation shades after the female cast members of the show. Every detail of each Sappho product has been mindfully crafted, from the eco-friendly, biosphere-treated compostable tubes and glass foundation bottles, to the details of the mascara brush and melt-into-your skin formulas. JoAnn quickly proved that performance and luxury doesn’t have to suffer with safe products.
