Foundation is one makeup essential that not only beautifies the face but also makes perfect all facial imperfections. When I say “imperfections”, you can guess I mean acne, blemishes, dark spots, scars and every other evil set out to mar the face. The essence of foundation isn’t to make your face brighter than every other part of your body or to make you look like you have ten layers of makeup on your face; it is to beautify your face while concealing its flaws. But the reverse happens when you either apply your foundation wrongly or use a wrong color match. To avoid that, you need to find your perfect foundation shade by testing it right.
