All About That Base

Beauty. / Thursday, September 6th, 2018

There are sooo many things to think about when it comes to picking out your base products. Like, what color foundation should you get? Or, what kind of primer would work best with your skin type? They’re questions that, unfortunately, you’ll have to research for yourself. Easiest way to go about that is to go to a makeup counter and be skin typed, and color matched. We also reference skin typing here! Then your journey to a flawless base will be so much easier to achieve. 😊
We created a list of our favorite products from primer to foundation, in hopes that one of you all will find something new that you love! Yes, we do have different skin types, but we made things a little easier for you by putting an O(oily) or D(dry/combo) next to the products that we think work best for that skin type.
