Well, for all makeup lovers out there, foundation is definitely a holy grail, right? But at the same time, it’s not an easy task to get that right foundation too!! I mean, to get that right shade of foundation is itself quite a task, then comes blend ability, coverage, finish and what not!! To help you out with all these confusion, we have come up with a list of foundations with their list of pros and cons.
Just a disclaimer, before you pick a foundation, try it out on your chin area, to check whether it matches neck and face shade both. That’s the major crux to pick the right shade of foundation. DO NOT BELIEVE in the myth that you have to get foundation tone lighter than your skin tone, because that is when you get grey patches on your skin. Do remember, foundation shade should be same as that of your skin tone!
So here’s the list of top five foundations to help you pick the right choice for you. Check it out:
