am i the only one who has had a difficult time finding a great foundation? let me introduce you to my fave, along with a few others in my new video.

tips for picking out the perfect foundation colour:

  • try it on: if you are purchasing a foundation at a store that has testers, try the three colours you think will work. spread each in a little line at your jaw to compare. if you cannot test out the colours, make sure you can return a foundation. it’s nearly impossible to pick out a proper match without trying it on.
  • go outside: the only way to see which colour matches properly is to take a mirror outside into natural light and take a look. yes, it will look odd but it’s completely necessary!
  • get a second opinion: ask a friend which one they think matches your skin.

if it’s difficult to pin down your skin tone, eyeballing a few foundation colours to try on will help narrow down if you are cool, neutral or warm and then you can go from there.

happy glowing!

    I have super oily skin and have been using Nars Sheer Matte in Punjab for the last year. Love it! Its the only foundation that I can use in the summer and winter months without worrying about my skin becoming too shiny.

  • Lumiere’s Cashmere silk foundation is my ultimate favorite. It’s medium coverage, but buildable. Gorgeous finish. xo

    @val: that’s awesome to hear! the sheer matte and sheer glow are close to the same formulation but the sheer glow is a little better suited to a normal/combo skin for sure. thanks for the feedback!

    @elizabeth: haven’t heard of it, thanks for the reco!

    Am loving the VLOG! Have you vlog’d before? You are so natural! My question is have you/or would you recomend mixing 2 foundation types together? I have girlfriends who swear by it? Pros? vs. Cons?

      that’s so sweet, thank you! yes- you can mix two colours but it’s an art and would take some practice. good luck with it!
