The most important part of starting your makeup is foundation. the foundation is what brings your makeup together. However, a lot of us struggle to find our perfect foundation shade and sometimes it isn’t our fault. Sometimes we can’t find our perfect foundation shade because a brand has not made it or we are picking the wrong type of foundation for our skin. Many women struggle to find their perfect foundation shade because of this. A lot of things go into finding your perfect shade including your undertone, and skin type. If you have dry skin you will want to find a foundation that is more hydrating but if you have oily skin you will want a foundation with a more matte finish. According to Glamour “You might be quick to blame your skin, but in most cases, it’s the makeup you’re choosing for your skin. Foundation mistakes are tough to avoid—you’re dealing with, in essence, a one-size-fits-all product—but there are a few factors to consider before you even buy the bottle (or stick!) that’ll ensure you’re getting the most from the formula you choose.”
